I don’t think I can fully explain the excitement in the TruffleShuffle office when I recieved a message labelled ‘Thundercats Movie?’. All the fantastic characters are present including obviously Lion-O (Brad Pitt), Panthro (Vin Diesel) and Tygra (Hugh Jackman). Too good to be true? After watching the trailer we were left questioning what we had just witnessed. Is this really going to happen? Hmmm, Some of those scenes look familiar…..

Well it wasn’t until TruffleShuffles resident film guru confirmed our worst fears, the trailer was a homemade fake!
Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! But all TruffleShuffle members are in agreement, this definitely should happen!! We need a Thundercats: The Movie. This trailer has easily proved that it would be a brilliant movie and we’re sure, a great success!!

Please, please, please someone make this!! You won’t regret it.

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey in the classic, Dirty Dancing
Dirty Dancing film star Patrick Swayze has died aged 57.

He had been battling pancreatic cancer for nearly two years and died with family at his side on Monday.
Jennifer Grey, who co-starred with Swayze in Dirty Dancing, said in a statement: “Patrick was a rare and beautiful combination of raw masculinity and amazing grace. Gorgeous and strong, he was a real cowboy with a tender heart.
“He was fearless and insisted on always doing his own stunts, so it was not surprising to me that the war he waged on his cancer was so courageous and dignified.”

Rob Lowe, who played in a number of films with Swayze, said: “Patrick lived a thousand lifetimes in one lifetime. He was an expert dancer, he wrote hit songs, he starred in hit movies, he was an amazing horseman.
“But the thing I will remember him most for was his amazing love affair with his wife Lisa.”
Demi Moore has also paid tribute to her co-star in the hit film Ghost, saying: “Patrick you are loved by so many and your light will forever shine in all of our lives.”
She added: “I love and will miss you Patrick.”

Heteropoda Davidbowie

by Lucy Smith on September 7, 2009

New just in! Singer, movie star and all round total legend David Bowie has had a large, yellow, very hairy spider from Malaysia named after him!

A German spider specialist told the Observer newspaper he named the new species after Bowie because he wanted to raise awareness about the discovery.

Peter Jaeger, who has found 200 new species of arachnids in a decade, says he’s named it Heteropoda davidbowie.
Jaeger says most of the species he’s uncovered are endangered.
“It is working against time,” he said. “We are also quickly losing genetic resources that have evolved over more than 300 million years.”
Bowie, has yet to react to the news.

Just one last question: Is it poisonous?

Who really would win?

by Lucy Smith on September 1, 2009

Sometimes questions get asked that will never truly get answered. Like, who would win in a fight between Rocky Balboa and Chuck Norris? Will Pinky and the Brain ever take over the world? And one of the ultimate questions, who would win intergalactic warfare, Star Trek or Star Wars?

What do you reckon would happen if these two titans met and went head-to-head in space? Well, DMPheonix have brought us a glimpse of what may happen….
