nintendo pulp cover 1

When I first spotted the Zelda pulp fiction cover art by artist Ástor Alexander, I didn’t know it was a series. Now that I do, I had to share them. The Mario one is just…perfection. Also included is a Metroid cover and, if you played Bioshock Infinite’s Burial at Sea DLC, there’s a little something her for you as well.

LOTR mythology

When it comes to trying to understand all of the different people, races, and creatures within The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, it’s easy to get a little confused. There is, after all, a lot going on.

Thankfully YouTuber CGP Grey is here to break it down for you in under 5 minutes.

tennant gracepoint notes

Gracepoint may be cancelled, but the set still has gifts to offer. It seems that prop master Clayton Flagg is a Doctor Who fan and decided to have a little fun when writing up the messages that David Tennant’s character received on February 15th.

Lucky for us, the inside joke didn’t stop with Flagg. Not only did David Tennant photograph them, but Gracepoint‘s writer, creator, and executive producer Chris Chibnall tweeted out the picture to share it with the rest of us Whovians.

The writing may be a bit hard to read, so here’s what the messages say:

From: Martha Jones
Message: Has information about Sally Sparrow.

From: D Noble
Message: Information regarding the library.

From: R. Tyler
Message: something regarding a wolf?

Check out the tweet after the break.

zelda triforce leather journal

It seems to me that all books should have a cover like this. It really makes you feel like you’re going on an adventure.

This leather Zelda Triforce book/journal cover is hand tooled and painted by artist Ian Finch-Field of SkinzNHydez. I think it’s beautifully crafted and I’d figure would only get better with age.

hot toys little groot

We still can’t get enough of Baby Groot, especially when the Baby Groot in question is this adorable (and super accurate) version by Hot Toys.

While this version doesn’t actually dance, it is a fantastic replica. The 1/4 Scale Little Groot Collectible features 3 interchangeable head sculpts, movable arms, and a moveable body.

Head after the break to see more of this super cute collectible.

luke and vader

Jason Reitman is staging a one-night-only live-read of The Empire Strikes Back as part of an ongoing monthly series which has included The Princess Bride, Ghostbusters, American Beauty and more.

Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul will be taking on the role of nascent Jedi Luke Skywalker, while (one of my fave actors ever) J.K Simmons (Spider-Man‘s J. Jonah Jameson) will play Darth Vader.

Currently, Reitman also has his cast for Yoda (Kevin Pollak), Lando Calrissian (Dennis Haysbert), and C-3PO (Stephen Merchant). No word yet on casting for Han Solo and Leia.

The show is being held tonight, December 18th, at the Ace Hotel Theater in LA. Tickets, as you might expect, have already sold out.

Supernatural ornament lost my shoe

The Winchester Brothers don’t have the best track record when it comes to Christmas, which may be why I love the idea of these Supernatural ornaments so much. They’re made by an artsy gal named Denise and she sells them in her Etsy shop.

She also showed me some very cool upcoming designs for next year, including an idea for a painted wine glass, so I’d say it’s a good idea to check back on her stuff from time to time.

I know it’s probably too late to get these Supernatural ornaments for this year’s decorating, but there’s no reason you can’t get yourself something for next year, right?

nerd wedding

I’ve always been a firm believer that the best weddings are the ones where the bride and groom don’t cater to tradition or the wishes of others. In this case, when Fallon and Ethan got married, they decided to make their wedding a celebration of all the geeky things they love.

They put together quite an event. From Harry Potter themed Quibbler programs and table favors, to Star Wars macarons, to a handmade custom bouquet made of book pages and comic book pages by Meredith at The Flower Girl Atlanta – they had all kinds of great, geeky touches.
