Alex St. John a.k.a. “The Saint” began his career as one of the innovators behind Microsoft’s API, Direct X platform, a role that led to him becoming Microsoft’s Technology Evangelist. Ostensibly, Alex was able to convince clients formerly against using Windows as a development platform, to do so EXCLUSIVELY — using Direct X. A platform that he constructed as part of a three man team, with no budget, little to no resources, and oh yea, no corporate approval.

San Diego Comic Con 2013is just a week away and with that comes Course of the Force!
What is Course of the Force you ask???
Well, it is a charity event for the Make-A-Wish foundation where celebrities and fans of the Star Wars franchise can help relay a lightsaber from the famous Skywalker ranch in San Francisco to the San Diego Convention Center, just in time for Comic Con. Wouldn’t you know it, The Jace Hall Show Producer/Director Todd Roy and Adrianne Curry helped carry the torch…er, Lightsaber.
Said Adrianne Curry, an honorary member of the 501st, who was running the course for her second time, “Course for the Force mixed together all the things I love. ComicCon, the 501st Legion, Skywalker Ranch, Nerdist, my amazing bf and the Make-A-Wish Foundtion. Nerd culture at its best!”
This was JHS Producer/Director Todd Roy first run but he still echoed those same sentiments. “This was a great event for a great cause – I was lucky enough to tag along with Adrianne to be a part of this. Please look at their site and participate. A fun time for a great cause”
The course runs from July 9th to the 16th and there are still some spots to register for the 1/4 mile run here. If you register you get an official Hasbro Lightsaber and other goodies, as well as knowing that 100% of the proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Although there isn’t going to be an OFFICIAL Star Wars presence at Comic Con this year, the Course of the Force Run will still raise money for a awesome charity and unite fans of the franchise in the process.
“Our plan to run at Comic-con screaming with a lightsaber worked beyond our wildest dreams. People showed up! Lots of them! In cosplay! And we were able to grant more than 1000 wishes for Make-A-Wish! Last year we started in Santa Monica, this year, Marin, and hopefully next year Tatooine.” said Creator of Course of the Force Run Chris Hardwick.

Jace Hall, Film/Television Producer, video game creator/executive extraordinaire, and Host of the Online Video Game Inspired series, The Jace Hall Show, is putting the most famous T-Rex 14R in the world on the market.
This is definitely no ordinary T-Rex. This is the T-Rex that numerous film, television and music celebrities borrow when they need that “unique ride for a special occasion.” Not only has this specific vehicle been driven by Zach Levi of Chuck fame and appeared in huge videos like the Black Eyed Peas music video “Imma Be” with Will.I.am and Fergie behind the wheel (to name a few) this T-Rex continues to be featured in numerous major music videos because of its special customizations.
This T-Rex has been completely redesigned to be more safe, stable and comfortable than any other T-Rex that has ever existed. All other T-Rex vehicles feel like toys to drive when compared to this one. Most of the classic T-Rex design limitations have been overhauled, creating a reliable vehicle that can be driven daily without concern.
The overall wheelbase of the T-Rex 14R has been stretched from 90 to 97 inches (almost the length of a Toyota Prius wheelbase) and 3 inches have been added to the headroom– to accomodate height up to 6′ 9″ and comfortable seating for two passengers. This is the only T-Rex on Earth that is comfortable for anyone who is tall/big. While it has been stretched, it still hasn’t sacrificed any storage, with a total of 92 L available in the dual, side compartments.
As a testimony to how much driver room there is in this modified T-Rex, 6’5″ 330lbs MMA superstar fighter BOB SAPP has driven the vehicle.
For a vehicle that goes 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds and hits a top speed of 144mph, the T-Rex 14R is still a certified street legal automobile, complete with a 1.5 inch tubular steel body with rollover bars to ensure maximum safety. Thanks to the manual transmission, the T-Rex 197 horsepower engine delivers up to 30 miles a gallon and almost 300 miles on a single tank.
A couple of avid game players wanted to bring their passion for gaming to life, so where else to turn then making your very own graphic novel? That’s where Xtu and Graytemplar (their gamertags) decided to cook up their own 50 page graphic novel and gather investors for kickstarter.
What makes it especially epic (at least for us) was the inclusion of several Jace Hall moments, including a medieval Felicia Day. We caught up with the guys who are putting it all together, to get an insight into what it takes to turn an idea like a graphic novel, into a reality.

It was almost a year ago that epic Comic Book LEGEND Stan Lee and The Jace Hall Show’s very own host, teamed up to find out who the greatest comic book fans of all-time were in the online series Fan Wars. Fan Wars put fans head to head to debate which one of their comic heroes were greater, but today, Stan Lee and Jace Hall get their chance to debate…DC characters? (insert Stan Lee *facepalm* here).
Who would win in a battle? Batman vs. Wonder Woman? The Flash vs. The Joker? Continue reading “Jace Hall and Stan Lee Debate in Epic Standoff: Who is Greater – Batman or Wonder Woman? Flash or The Joker” »

Jace Hall, Stan Lee, and Adrianne Curry appeared live today on What’s Trending. Each discussed their early influences and indoctrination into nerd-life, and how vast the world of nerd culture has become for any fans new to the scene.
When asked what it’s like working for Stan the Man, Adrianne gushes, while surprise, surprise, Jace thinks Stan is much nicer to Adrianne than he is to him.
Stan also unveiled plans for his next endeavor with his company POW! (Purveyors of Wisdom). POW will give rise of two new superheroes, one Indian, the other Chinese.

It all started with a simple image of Jace Hall from a yet to be released episode of Season 5…what resulted were these photos ALL FROM FANS OF THE JACE HALL SHOW. If you haven’t liked our Facebook page yet, here is just a sample of what you are missing.
We have long felt we have the best fans of any show on the internet, and this may just well prove it. Special shout out to Richard Watts for his amazing and epic contributions!
Here’s what he said inspired him:
I wish there were more shows around which were made by people who genuinely love video games, TJHS kind of stands alone, at least from my perspective, which is a shame. I love to screw around with photoshop, and so when I saw the competition on facebook, it seemed like a great opportunity to make some stupid images.
Let us all know your favorite in the comments below and thank you again to EVERYONE who submitted for the Photoshop contest. You are all truly legendary. Continue reading “Photoshop Contest: Jace Hall Show Fans Give Jace A Trip Around The World” »

We know that by now most of the world has seen The Dark Knight Rises. And while audience and journalists’ reviews for the movie have, for the most part, praised it in all the right spots, they’ve also given Nolan his share of sh*t for certain shortcomings.
Some people, for instance, seem to feel that Rises had too many characters (Matthew Modine, anyone?). Some feel that Bane, who ends up as this sort of half-assed villain, could have had a little more plot time spent on him. And in a recent interview with TDKR costume designer Lindsey Hemming (via Vulture.com), a key and ‘exciting’ scene in the movie involving Bane was discussed.
The scene in question featured a key plot point which never made it to the movie. Continue reading “DAILY CINEMA: Crucial Scene Missing From ‘The Dark Knight Rises’; Avengers 2 Gets Greenlit; Ben Affleck vs. Justice League” »
Jace, the consummate gamer and nerdcore music aficionado, takes Vernon to task in an Atari video game challenge. Vernon, however, had other plans and thought he came down to Los Angeles to purchase Jace’s T-Rex automobile (see below). While Jace has other plans, Vernon makes Jace a $1,000,000 offer he and Jace Hall Show Producer/Director Todd Roy have to find very hard to refuse.

Felicia Day returns for Episode 2 of The Jace Hall Show, trading barbs with Jace over Twitter, Mathematics, and Todd’s constant e-mailing (will Baby Jesus make an appearance and finally settle on a new home?).

Milli Vanilli and John Davis are reunited for their first interview ever Continue reading “WEEKLY EPISODE: Felicia Day, I Play WoW Make Epic Return to Jace Hall Show” »
It was April 1, 2011 when the final episode of Season 4 aired (that’s no joke) capping off a season that featured Mortal Kombat, Rage, and Duke Nukem exclusives as well as some dangerous pyrotechnics from Stan Lee.
Fast forward to the present day, where after countless tweets, facebook messages, and emails — many of which were wondering if we were gone for good (really?) — we can say THE JACE HALL SHOW IS BACK!
The first episode in Season 5 features a little bit of everything for everyone, most notably one of the most epic video game Continue reading “WEEKLY EPISODE: Don’t Blame It On The Game, Season 5 Is Back!” »
Milli Vanilli sold over six million albums during the late 80′s and early 90′s, earning them a Grammy and several American Music Awards. But they will forever be known for the lip syncing incident that occurred on November 19th, 1990, when during a live performance of “Girl You Know It’s True”, the track began to skip, revealing the two were lip syncing.
So who was singing the actual song? One of the original vocalists was John Davis, who sang the vocals for Blame It On The Rain — which was one of three singles to reach number one on the Billboard charts.
Prior to the gamer inspired Jace Hall Show version of Blame It On The Rain (Blame It On The GAME), John Davis and Fab Morvan (one of the two original members of Milli Vanilli) had NEVER Continue reading “Fab Morvan and John Davis Together For First Time Ever On “Blame It On The Game” Music Video” »
