With TSR Buzz, you’ll find links to articles, videos and other random things that will help you waste your time just a little bit more.

  • Some weeks, I have a hard time finding enough clips I like to fill this space. This is not one of those weeks. Georges Méliers' La Voyage dans la Lune is having a banner year after being featured heavily in Oscar nominee Hugo. Now it's getting a shiny new re-release. The original color plates, long believed lost, were found and the film's original hand-coloring has been restored. Air have written a soundtrack for the film that will be released on February 7. Portlanders can see the film, along with a documentary about the restoration process at the Portland International Film Festival on February 10 and 12. Here's a preview.


  • Liam Neeson makes one woman's day/week/month/year by leaving the best voicemail message anyone could have.


  • Winter is coming! OK, well, Game of Thrones is coming back anyway. This teaser made me feel all tingly inside. Go Daenerys Targaryen!


  • Fox News attacked The Muppets, saying it was pushing a liberal viewpoint. While Kermit can be egalitarian about this, they really should know not to mess with Miss Piggy.


  • Portland's premiere metal band, Red Fang, just put out a new video that once again blends humor, rock, and recognizable local places. Even if you don't think it's up your alley, watch the first 10 seconds.
