    Place Your Bets! Folks Are Already Betting on Next Actor to Play James Bond

    Relax, Daniel Craig fans. You haven't missed something. Despite some off-again/on-again rumors that Craig is leaving the franchise, it doesn't look like he's going anywhere for at least two more movies. He's got to go sometime, though, right? In fact, betting's already open on who will fill his tuxedo when he does.

    Man Building Aston Martin via 3D Printer, Rest of Us Feeling Inadequate

    There are more or less two kinds of people in the world: People whose first impulse upon buying a 3D printer is to build James Bond's car, and everyone else. New Zealand resident and programmer Ivan Sentch? Yeah, he's the first kind.

    Honest Trailer for Skyfall Makes a Ton of Good Points

    I'm willing to admit that there's definitely some strange stuff going on in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that there are a goodly number of oddities. The movie was still grand to watch, if only because Judi Dench is phenomenal. Still, Screen Junkies' latest Honest Trailer for the film is definitely firing on all cylinders and makes a bunch of fair points about Skyfall's overwhelming reliance on convenient plot developments.

    Liked Skyfall? The British Government is was Recruiting 00 Agents Online!

    Who hasn't wanted to be a secret agent at least once in their life. Look at James Bond: He always gets the toys, he always gets the girl, and he gets to wear an awesome-looking tuxedo more than anybody. (Also, he saves the world. That's pretty cool too.) The point is, if you could say... apply for that job online, you'd do it, right? Well guess what? You missed your shot. The British government actually posted a job listing for a new 00 agent on their recruitment website yesterday. After only a day or two, the listing has already been taken down; Possibly because of the overwhelming number applicants, or because it was a big joke.

    First Teaser Trailer for the new James Bond Film Skyfall Looks Pretty Rad

    Though its future was uncertain for a while, the 23rd film starring Britain's top secret agent James Bond is not only in the can, but already has a teaser trailer. The film, called Skyfall, still has Daniel Craig in the lead role and director Sam Mendes at the helm, but looks to be taking a bit of a different track from the last two films.

    The James Bond Theme Played on Floppy Drives [Video]

    It never ceases to amaze me that some crafty folk found a modern day use for the old stalwart floppy drive. Granted, said use isn't the original intention of storage media, but playing songs by manipulating the inner workings of multiple floppy drives is a noble endeavor. This time around, we have eight floppy drives playing the James Bond theme song, which was built for display at Purdue University for the Association of Electrical Technologists club during their Technology Week. Super cool.

    Talented Quadcopters Play The James Bond Theme [Video]

    The James Bond theme is pretty well iconic, so it's not surprising that it's been subjected to nose flute covers, or mashed up in a video of all 22 James Bond film openings. Now the iconic song has hit another theme song milestone; it's been played by an army of quadcopters. This quadcopter symphony, performing the piece at the TED2012 Conference in California is quite good, and as amusing to watch as they are to hear. Unfortunately there is not, however, and army of humans with remote controls sitting in front of a conductor. This is all preprogrammed. None the less, it sure is noteworth accomplishment in, uh, music copter-sition.

    Real-Life GoldenEye 64 Has Graphics That Are a Little Too Realistic

    I'm all for realistic graphics, but this fan-made GoldenEye 64 mod -- which is totally an actual GoldenEye 64 mod, for sure -- takes it too far. It's like it comes out of one uncanny valley and into the next. Maybe they should have but a little of that effort into improving Natalya's AI instead of making sure the bad guys look like real people as they awkwardly crumble. I think I'll just go play GoldenEye: Rogue Agent; that was way better than GoldenEye 64 anyways. I mean, at least it had an actual golden eye, right?

    All 22 James Bond Intros Side By Side By Side By Side [Video]

    In the interest of science! YouTuber MJCJMJCJM created a composite video which shows the first minute of every James Bond film simultaneously in a handy little matrix. As you might expect, things don't line up perfectly, but it's still cool to see all those iconic shots go off. Now I just want to see someone redo this, but with all the shots synchronized. Surely someone out there has to be working on that.

    RIP John Barry, James Bond Composer

    John Barry, the film score composer best known for his work on the James Bond series, for which he composed eleven soundtracks, died in New York yesterday of a sudden heart attack. He was 77 years old. Felllow Bond composer David Arnold writes in tribute:

    It's music that goes directly to your core. That's why you hear it at weddings, funerals, birthday parties. John Barry's work has affected us all - it's been on the radio since the 60s, on adverts, on the films we watch with our families at Christmas. He gets to your home, he gets to your heart, he gets to your head. ... He lived the life of a hundred men. Thank God we gave so much amazing music to remember him by. He was a real master, and he will go on influencing musicians for a long time. It's a profoundly sad loss.
    Below, a few Barry-composed Bond scores:
