21 and Over - Movie Trailers - iTunes

Plot:
“Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.”

Will the film reinforce or loosen the stereotype of the hard-working Asian student? What do you think?

Makes me think back to my 21st birthday, what a blast…. of what I can remember anyway.

Robotic Beer Cooler With a Cannon

Greg Needel, mechanical engineer, combat roboticist and toymaker. For his entry this year in the Red Bull Creation competition (last year’s program he built a beer tap that senses the size of a glass and pours the perfect brew) he continued the party theme with a robotic cooler. Bravo, Greg. Enjoy.

Korehira Watanabe, the Sword Maker

Awesomeness. Its not just that Korehira Watanabe decided, as a college student, that he wanted to become a swordmaker, even at the cost of family disownment in a family-based society. Its not just that he dedicated 40 years of his life towards recreating the craft of the kotō swords (the period of which spans from the late 10th Century to 1596) whose manufacturing secrets had been lost some 400 years ago. What is most awesome to us is that Watanabe intends for his disciple to surpass him in skill, as he’s adamant the tradition be passed along. He knows he may never uncover the secret of the Koto within his lifetime, but future generations might.
