I’ll admit that I’ve been on the fence about X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but this new trailer has rekindled a spark of hope.
I LOVE the moment between Mystique and Wolverine. It seems like we’re going to get some real interaction between the characters with our dose of insane action and cool special effects.
Check it out after the break and enjoy.
Thanks to some amazing and very resourceful Harry Potter fans, you can now study at Hogwarts through a new website called Hogwarts Is Here. The website is a mix of an RPG and a MOOC (massive open online course). So, it’s a RPMOOC, which I’m pretty sure is a first.
There’s no Sorting Hat here. You get to pick your own house and then it’s off to school with you.
Here’s a snippet from the site, specifically the Academics page:
Students are now able to enroll at Hogwarts, beginning as a first year taking necessary courses like Charms and Potions, and progressing through years until you complete all seven years of academics. All textbooks required for your courses have also been digitized and are now available for online reading, such as A Standard Book of Spells and A Beginner’s Guide to Transfiguration.
Each course is divided up into nine weeks (lessons), where you will study the material provided and complete the work pertaining to that week’s lesson. You will have actual homework assignments, essays, quizzes and tests all graded by Hogwarts professors who have been fully trained on this new muggle technology.
You can write for The Daily Owl, sign up for the Quidditch Club and even get a vault at Gringotts which you can fill with money from doing assignments.
In other words, it’s amazing and I’m hoping it gets a lot of new students.
I don’t know how someone found this shirtless Bigby bug while playing The Wolf Among Us, but I want to know how to recreate it.
Maybe with Hugh Jackman.
Enjoy the video after the break. I know I did.
Nerds, man. We go that extra level to be awesome and weird and amazing.
Allis Markham is the owner of owner of Preytaxidermy and also works as a taxidermist for the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. So, when she wanted to give a gift to a friend who’s big Game Of Thrones fan, she made her this 3-eyed crow.
It’s definitely a unique gift. I’m sure GRRM would be most impressed.

As a Star Wars geek, I can say that I wish I had my very own Han In Carbonite at home and, while I love this amazing life-size Han In Carbonite from Sideshow, I need to look for something a little more in my budget.
Luckily, ThinkGeek has a solution that let’s you have your carbonite Han and a rug that ties the room together.
Lay Han down on the floor or hang him on the wall as a tapestry. Heck, I won’t judge. Just promise me you’ll do Jabba’s laugh at least once.
It comes in two sizes: small/medium (31 1/2″ x 71 1/2″) or large/x-large (39″ x 90 1/2″) and is in stock now.

As part of an ongoing celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary, DC Entertainment released a new Batman short film by Bruce Timm (co-creator of Batman: The Animated Series) called “Strange Days”, which pits Batman against Dr. Hugo Strange in a gorgeous 1930′s style. It debuted earlier this week on Cartoon Network, but is now available online.
We’ve included the new short, along with a video of Bruce Timm discussing its development on an episode of “DC All Access” after the break.
