doc

You never know when you’re going to discover another nerd in your daily travels. Case in point: this note was left by a mechanic who worked on thetraciwho‘s car. Apparently, her car is adorned with all sorts of Doctor Who stuff, and the mechanic noticed. Clearly, he too is a Whovian which gave rise to the most brilliant customer note any mechanic has ever left ever.

See video clips of the references in the note after the break.

dragon violin

Lindsey Stirling has applied her musical stylings to a variety of theme songs. She’s not only insanely talented at playing the violin, her renditions include costumes and well-produced music videos. Her latest cover is of the Dragon Age: Inquisition theme, and it’s stunning. Plus, it has some eye-catching visual effects.

pac

Remember the good old days when you just put a game cartridge into the console and the game played? Okay, maybe you had to blow on the cartridge a few times first, but that was all. Today, things are so much more complicated. This video imagines what it would be like playing the Atari 2600 version of Pac-Man with an experience that is typical of modern games. It’s oh so very frustrating.

christmas harry potter tour 10

Even though the Harry Potter movies finished filming years ago, the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London keeps things fresh and changes the scenery. The Dark Arts addition came in around Halloween, and now they’ve completed a makeover for the Christmas holiday. Besides blanketing the Hogwarts model in snow, they’re dressing up the Great Hall as it was seen decorated for the holiday in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

There will be eight Christmas trees on the set, and the long dining tables will be covered with holiday feasts. The Special Effects department from the films will bring in colored lights and some faux flames to make the fireplaces look festive. There will even be plum puddings on fire. And that’s not all! From the tour’s website:

You’ll also be able to see the hand-knitted jumpers that Molly Weasley gave Ron and Harry for Christmas in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Other costumes on display will include one of the first Christmas presents Harry ever received at Hogwarts, his Invisibility Cloak, and the dress Luna Lovegood wore to the Slug Club Christmas party in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The Christmas decor will be up through February 1, 2015.

tallest roller coaster

It doesn’t matter how much you like coasters because this one is so crazy it’s likely to make you hurl just watching the demo video.

Skyscraper at Skyplex in Orlando, Florida will be constructed starting in 2017, and at over 500-feet tall it will be the tallest roller coaster in the world when it’s complete. It’s not just one drop, but a twisting tower of tracks that will wind you down all 500 of those feet while you try not to lose your lunch.

Experience it for yourself in the video after the break.

dance

Star-Lord proposed a dance-off to settle things in Guardians of the Galaxy, which of course Ronan refused. Or did he? In this outtake we see actor Lee Pace (Ronan) improvise and take the challenge, busting out the Running Man.

By the end of it all, Gamora, Drax, and even the crew in the background are all dancing fools and it’s wonderful. This is just one of the bonus extras that can be found on the Blu-ray release of the movie due out on December 9th. They may all look good, but dancing baby Groot is still the best dancer of them all.

he man

He-Man is as witty as he is buff. He got all the best one-liners in the cheesy cartoon as the following video compilation will prove. Still, Skeletor wasn’t completely overshadowed. When it comes to insulting your minions, Skeletor is hard to beat.
