Brothers traveling in Mexico during Sunday’s deadly earthquake photographed this surreal sight: The power of the quake lifting a layer of dust off a mountain range.

It’s never too young to think and dress like your baby is going to be the next big star.  In our American Idol/Starstruck type of world where anyone can be the next a big star, you have to start them young.  Here is a future Beyonce, already getting fashion tips.  Now once they teach her to stand and walk, the sky is the limit with this promising little lass!

Letters From Kids To God

Did you ever write a letter to God as a kid?  Here is a small collection of cute notes from kids to God.  Enjoy.

Here’s a fairy tale that could only happen in the movies. Man makes YouTube video. Goes to Hollywood. Gets pots of money and a movie deal. Except this story is true.

An unknown producer from Uruguay, Fede Alvarez, shelled out about $300 to create a cool video of a robot invasion in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. The four-minute short, “Ataque de Panico!” (Panic Attack) features ginormous (but slow-moving) weapon-wielding robots that blow stuff up.

We have to admit, it has pretty amazing production values. The Playlist gushed that the director may be the next Neill Blomkamp, who made the South African-based alien flick “District 9.” With the blog abuzz, the South American short went viral, and has already been viewed on YouTube 1.5 million times.

Well, apparently nothing gets by Hollywood these days. The lucky duck told the BBC, “I uploaded ‘Ataque de Panico!’ on a Thursday and on Monday my inbox was totally full of emails from Hollywood studios.” Long story short, a bidding war ensued. The offer he pocketed: A $30 million deal with Sam “Spiderman” Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures. That’s a nice return on investment.

The picture will be a sci-fi thriller set in Argentina and Uruguay. In case you’re hoping to see the feature-length version of “Panic Attack!” in a movie theater, it won’t be from this deal. The newly minted “it” guy says he will start from scratch.
