+ - Kung Fury (80's Movie Themed Kickstarter project) released on YouTube

Submitted by Cutting_Crew
Cutting_Crew writes: Kung Fury was a Kickstarter Project back in late 2013 that was " over-the-top action comedy written and directed by David Sandberg. The movie features: arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure."

Although it didn't raise the $1 Million for a full feature film, it raised $650,000 over the initial $200,000 goal and it was finally released on May 28th on Youtube as a 30 minute short feature film. It was created using mainly a green screen for all the fighting/backdrops/special effects in the Swedish basement of the Director and Writer David Sanberg . This was made by some of the same guys behind Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and by 80's synth musicians such as Mitch Murder(Johan Bengtsson).

There was also a music video made for the movie and who wouldn't be a better front man for the video than the hoffman hoff David Hasselhoff . Seriously, its a good video, in a nostalgic, scary, awfully awesome cheesy way. How can you go wrong with Hoff mixed in with dinosaurs, a NES powerglove a hot barbarian chick and a computer hacker playing a keyboard that generates a hot neon pink pulse wave coming out the top? The video also gives a small nudge to the Texas Instruments Speak & Math when the hacker presses the keyboard with the powerglove.

The movie also does the justice of the 80's. Action, Deloreans, Lambos, Hot fighter chicks, Computer hacking, neon lights, arcade machines and cool synth music. It even incorporates distortions in the movie (and the music video) intentionally to give the effect of watching it on VHS. What other 80's references did you pick up on?

which currently offer 35/60/90/150/300 mbps internet tiers to normal folk and in some local communities like the ones in the Tampa area they signed exclusive deals to upcoming and new subdivisions/HOAs to offer 1 Gbps speeds as part of their lure to get people to move in. So if Charter buys them out what happens to the 1 Gbps deal that the original builder/HOA/CDD signed?? I bet that'll piss 'em off if Charter says, "sorry!!"

All electric, hot water heater, a/c. Try to keep the temp on the a/c around 73-75 F but most of the time its on, even in 'winter' months here in Central Florida.

I don;t know how others fare and obviously your mileage may vary due to occupancy, where you live, if you stay at home or not etc. We are currently in a 2,000 sq ft , 4 bed , 2 bath house.

Using my usage of about 2,000 kwh per month, I would have to figure out how much solar/battery usage I would need for that type of usage and when I would break even.

I can;t believe people only use 24 kwh. My average is roughly 2,000 kwh per month, about 70ish kwh per DAY. It will go higher in the summer months when its 100 degrees outside not counting the humidity. (Live in Central/Southern Florida, 4 bedroom, 2 bathm 2000 sq foot house)

and i remember going through this Spokeo site and a bunch of others. It had my name, correct address and some other information, all of which, i never gave them permission to use on their site. Right off the bat, it seems to me that is breaking the law.

As a central florida resident who has Bright House for cable, whom I've been happy with up until now, now wait to see if Charter continues to court Bright House for a possible merger or even if they think the merger will be approved. Here is one of the stories about that potential merger.

I personally don't think we need any more cable companies merging.
