If you’ve been jazzed for the new Simon Pegg and Nick Frost film, you’ll be happy to know a full-length trailer has been released. I, for one, was relieved to see that contrary to the title’s implication, this is not another in a long, annoying train of post apocalypse movies we’ve all been subjected to lately.
Check it out, with a brief intro from director Edgar Wright!
When I was a kid, I yearly tortured my poor mother by requesting the weirdest and most difficult Hallowe’en costumes ever (sorry Mom).
Well, despite all my Mom’s hours of work with sewing machines and glue guns (again, sorry Mom), I don’t think I ever had a costume as perfect and adorable as this E.T. and Elliot costume posted by Reddit user Emperor_Mao:
Guys, I’m dying. DYING! How great is this? Oh, and just for a bonus, check the reverse image from The-Actual-Fuck:
Is it still cute, or incredibly creepy? I can’t decide. Buuuuut, I think I may have my Hallowe’en costume for next year. I wonder if my Mom would help me?
Do you hear that sound? That’s the sound of my throwing away every phone in the house.
If you’re reading this, chances are you’re a guitar player yourself or know someone who is. It’s probably the most widely recognized instrument in the world and as such, a lot of people are thinking about how to make it even cooler.
I recently stumbled across a fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo for the JamStik, a small fingerboard guitar that hooks up via MIDI to iOS devices. We’ve all played Guitar Hero, and maybe even Rockband (and maybe maybe even Beatles Rockband, if you’re super dedicated), and though those are awesome games, they don’t really do much for teaching you how to actually play guitar.
JamStik, along with its software program JamTutor, totally does though. And while I could try to muddle through an explanation, it’s probably best that you just watch the video from the source:
Want to hear some sweet, sweet, burns on Benedict Cumberbatch, courtesy of Simon Pegg? Yes, of course you do!
To cut to the chase, skip forward to 3:00 and delight in the glory of verbal burnage! Then go back and listen to the rest of the interview because Pegg and co-star Alice Eve also happen to be super funny and charming:
Inspired DIY-er and Reddit user trickrtreatr has created this amazing Game of Thrones inspired pool noodle throne:
Already incredible. And then enter Redditor IAteAllTheTwix, who’s totally taken it to the next level:
I know, I know… a little bit of Photoshop and it’s kind of breathtaking. Actually, I take that back; it’s TOTALLY breathtaking.
It’s perfect for your next George R.R. Martin-themed pool party. And seriously, I can’t be the first person to think that up. We should all emotionally bare ourselves if we’re going to be accurate too.
Want to read more about the throne and read a LOT of bad/great GoT puns? Check out the original Reddit thread.
I’ve seen Pacific Rim pop up around the Interwebz now and again, but I’ve never really been compelled to watch it. I can’t say why – maybe because it’s kind of a mash-up of Transformers meets Godzilla meets Gundam Wing meets that really great arcade game Rampage from the late ’80s, and I feel like I’ve seen it before?
Either way, I’ve watched it now and it’s worth passing along, if just for the CGI. Have a look and sound off below on what you think:
