Batman v Superman looks like it’s going to be a very somber movie. YouTuber Albert Lopez has made it a heck of a lot lighter by setting the trailer to the song Dayman from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. We don’t know if this is the superhero movie we need, but it is the one we want.

As if I couldn’t love Kristen Bell any more.

Bell recently got into character as Anna to leave a voicemail for one of her biggest fans. Six year old Avery Huffman was recently diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma which is an inoperable brain tumor. Her parents have been documenting her battle on CaringBridge and with the hashtag #AveryStrong and caught the attention of Bell. In the voicemail, Anna appoints Avery as an “Honorary Princess of Arendelle.”

I think I have something in my eye. Check out Avery’s reaction to the voicemail after the break.

A Hobbit hole looks like a wonderful place to live, albeit a bit “cozy”. With that in mind, West Stow Pods has launched a Kickstarter to bring what they’re calling a Poddit Hole to life. The rental home will be as close as possible to a real Hobbit hole. They’ve even asked for help from the Tolkien Society to get it right.

The home will include two double bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and living room with log burner. If the project is fully funded, then backers will be among the first to stay there overnight when it’s estimated to be ready this October.

woodhouse

George Coe, the actor who voiced Archer’s butler, Woodhouse, died on July 18th at the age of 86. He was one of the original Saturday Night Live cast members back in 1975 and appeared in numerous film, television, and theater productions. FX released a video tribute to the actor that includes some of the best Woodhouse moments and an ending that may have you wiping away a tear.

tree-spiral-staircase-10-595x891

Arts grads from London’s Royal College, Robert McIntyre and Thor te Kulve, are the designers behind the CanopyStair tool-less spiral staircase. CanopyStair attaches harmlessly to a tree (or foundation for your amazing treehouse) using a ratchet strap system for easy assembly.

It looks amazing and beats the hell out of nail guns, levels and rope ladders. The duo plans to release a commercial version sometime in the near future.

While we don’t actually live in a world where we can have our own inflatable healthcare companion, this Big Hero 6 Baymax 10-inch plush is super cuddly. Plus, he talks when you squeeze him, which pretty much guarantees mine would be a constant chatterbox.

Baymax says the following phrases (subject to change).

Hello I am Baymax, your personal healthcare companion.
On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your pain?
(Deflating Sound)
I will scan you now.
Are you satisfied with your care?
Excuse me, while I let out some air. (Deflating Sound)
Tadashi is here.

This fan-made tech demo uses Unreal Engine 4 to put you in an X-Wing, a speeder bike on Endor, and a ship on Hoth. It was created by HammerheadVR, but Lucasfilm cried foul so they were forced to remove it from Vimeo. However, it is currently available on YouTube with the audio muted thanks to a copyright claim.

The audio issue may have had something to do with pulling down the original video, or it could be related to the fact that Lucasfilm is working on their own VR version of Star Wars that’s set to debut later this year. Either way, it gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Neon-Genesis-Evangelion-train

Inspired by the mechas from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Japanese train operator JR West is giving one of their super-fast bullet trains a mecha makeover. The design for his 500 Type EVA train will match the mecha Evangelion Unit-01 both inside and out.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Neon Genesis Evangelion, the blazing purple and green makeover is scheduled to start in autumn 2015 with completion in March 2017. This date also marks the 40th anniversary of the Sanyo Shinkansen line which connects Osaka and Fukuoka. Aside from the wild “party” decorations for these two momentous occasions, JR West also plans to sell commemorative memorabilia, with Evangelion animator Hideaki Anno supervising the project.

zelda

The minds over at FOX’s Animation Domination High-Def have created a new animated music video that adds hilariously honest lyrics to The Legend of Zelda theme song. From the description:

What is the Legend of Zelda? It’s the legend of a little moron, who can’t talk, and wastes time.

Check it out after the break.
