Slusho Makes Another Appearance in Fringe

Slusho! made another guest appearance on Fringe, in the latest episode "Momentum Deferred". However, in the world of Fringe, shape-shifting soldiers from another universe prefer drinking mercury to frozen beverages, even though Slusho itself is imbued with Kaitei No Mitsu!

Fan Made Cloverfield Videos

Last month, a fan-made Cloverfield video began making the rounds and picking up a little bit of "I don't think this is real, but..." coverage. We don't normally cover fake news, but yesterday, the second video from abcharu21 was released. This doesn't make it any more legitimate, but it does mean I will get a ton more emails wondering why I haven't posted these. So without further ado, I present to you "new" Cloverfield videos:

Slusho! appears in new Star Trek movie

Here is the scene from the upcoming Star Trek movie that shows the appearance of J.J. Abrams' favorite frozen beverage - Slusho! Star Trek opens nationwide March 7th.

BTW, if you haven't been following the Star Trek ARG discovered a few weeks ago, you should check it out. It already looks bigger than the Cloverfield ARG, incorporating real world clues (including a real alien crash site), interactive characters, and who knows what else is in store!!?!?!

JJ Abrams Mystery Box Edition of WIRED

The May issue of WIRED magazine featuring JJ Abrams as guest editorThe May issue of WIRED magazine recruited JJ Abrams as the guest editor. A year in the making, the "Mystery Issue" features a one-issue redesign directed by JJ, with mind-boggling puzzles on almost every page and hidden clues "that are not apparent at first or second glance."

This means that while many of the articles and puzzles are available online, you will need to get the magazine to get the full Easter egg experience.

Either way, be sure to check out the JJ Abrams article on mysteries and spoilers (spoiler alert: spoilers are bad, mkay?), and the "between-the-pages" interview below.

By the way, the "Mystery Box" on the cover refers to a very funny speech that Abrams gave at the TED conference in March 2007.

Slusho! Themed Star Trek Enterprise

Slusho themed Star Trek Enterprise
The official Star Trek website has a new section - The Enterprise Project - featuring models of NCC-1701 redecorated by various artists. One of the most interesting is Enterprise #12, the Slusho! theme by Bad Robot artist and animator Amy Vatanakul. All of the great Slusho! memes are represented, the Seabed Nectar, the Sword logo, "You Can't Drink Just Six", and of course all the fun Slusho! peope and critters. Nice work Amy!

Is there a new Star Trek ARG?

I get a lot of emails about movies, especially if they are J.J. Abrams related. One of the latest featured photos from some Star Trek "dance" parties taken by TheCobraSnake. I'm not much of a Trekkie, but I am a J.J. Abrams fan, so this looked like something I should check out ;)

Anyways, one of the first few photos I looked at had a weird URL written on it. It doesn't look natural (like it is photoshopped or something). Hmmm....

The address - - takes you to a weird flash site with static and flashing images and weird sound.

I looked through the other Star Trek party photos, and found two other images with URL's in them:

The two other URL's I found - and, have very similar (or the same?) flash websites.

This could be a CobraSnake thing (gamejack?), but since the photos are Star Trek related, I was thinking it could be for a Star Trek ARG? Does anyone know anyting about this? I googled it, but wasn't able to find anything about it... Just in case, I started a new thread over at Unfiction if you want to investigate it further, or feel free to discuss it in the comments...

Slusho! To Make Apperance In Fringe?

Fringe's John Noble and Anna Torv filming in NYC with a Slusho!J.J. Abrams' sci-fi thriller FRINGE was shooting in NYC this weekend, and SmokeInTheCity captured this photo of John Noble drinking a Slusho!

Is this just some behind the scenes antics, or will the magical drink make an appearance in the show?

The Fringe episode being filmed is The Road Not Taken, which will air May 5th on FOX.


FYI, Slusho! made several appearances in Heroes, thanks to J.J. Abrams' friend Greg Grunberg.

J.J. Abrams at Wondercon on Cloverfield Sequel

J.J. Abrams spoke at the Wondercon Star Trek panel, and answered a fan question about Cloverfield. Take it for what it's worth, but it sounds like the same old story* to me:
We have an idea that we thought was pretty cool that we’re playing with, which means there will be something that’s connected to Cloverfield, but I hope it happens sooner rather than later because the idea is pretty sweet.
If there ever was going to be a sequel, now would be the time to start it, and release the trailer during Star Trek in May. They wouldn't even need to film the whole movie - just the trailer, like they did with Cloverfield.

Cloverfield's Tagruato in Star Trek Superbowl Commercial

J.J. Abrams dropped another nod to Cloverfield in the latest Star Trek commercial seen during the Superbowl*. The Tagruato logo can be seen on one of the buildings, while J.J. Abrams' name flashes on the screen.

This is the second Cloverfield / Star Trek crossover. We reported earlier that Cloverfield's Slusho! will also be making an appearance in the movie.

Thanks to Evan, Marcus, and Matthew for emailing me about this!

* That's right, I said Superbowl, and not "The Big Game"! Superbowl. Superbowl. Superbowl. Suck it NFL!
