WHERE'S NIUBNIUB? 5th ANNIVERSARY CONTEST

Yes it's true, 5 years ago today, a little known ewok entered the world of the internet with a little site called NiubNiubsUniverse.Com :) At launch, I had maybe 8 sections and 500 pages or so. Today, over 47 sections, not including Visitors, contain over 10,000 pages. Now that's what I call a growth spurt :P So to celebrate, I present to you, as in years passed, the start of "Where's NiubNiub?" 5th Anniversary Contest.

This year you have 5 prizes to win, and 5 tasks to perform. it's that easy. Grab yourself a cup of coffee and start searching... Let the games begin :D

 

HAPPY CANADA DAY !!!

We folks in Canada get to celebrate a couple of days before the US :P enjoy your extended weekend, take advantage of the weather, cool movies playing in theaters and a couple hours playing Where's NiubNiub :)

NIUBNIUB SUMMER MOVIE REVIEWS

The wait is over !!! after 6 months of work and over 200 employees, last night my friends from Meteor and I got to see the Montreal premiere of Fantastic Four !!! For those of you who are curious to what it was we did in the movie, it's all the effects on the Brooklyn Bridge scene like you see in the gif below. It's 11 minutes of real cool action :P

I know the movie opens this Friday, but with many negative comments on other sites, I wanted to put my Fantastic Four review up in the as soon as possible. Is it worth your money to see it opening weekend? or should you run for your life and mail voodoo dolls to Twentieth Century Fox? :P Head on down to NiubNiub Summer Movie Reviews to find out.

NIUBNIUB SUMMER MOVIE REVIEWS

This weekend I was able to catch Tim Burton's remake of Willy Wonka: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. At first not sure what to think about it from the trailers, Johnny Depp sure looks frightening LOL. However Burton works his magic once again, check out my thoughts in NiubNiub's Summer Movie Reviews section

And remember, at the bottom of ALL movie reviews are interactive boxes for you to leave your name in and share with all of us what YOU thought of the movie.

 

SYSTEM CRASH THIS WEEKEND

A problem I was NOT planning on was a system crash this past saturday. I didn't loose any files or pictures but my softwares used for the site are running on crutches. I made a call to all my friends and waiting to see who can find me a reboot system disc for my machine. As soon as I get this, I'll be back to 100%. Until then , updates might be a little slow. (Don't tell me - "So what else is new?" LOL.)
