Cartoon Network has announced that Adventure Time will end it’s run in 2018. BUT WAIT! Before you despair know this: Cartoon Network has promised that specials, miniseries, the ninth and final season and more will air in the interim, so there’s still plenty of content left to enjoy. Save the sadness for future you. Present you can ignore this problem for two whole years.
Creator Pendelton Ward notes:
“Adventure Time was a passion project for the people on the crew who poured their heart into the art and stories. We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think.”
WAS? IS. Is for two whole years. Yes, denial will get me through this nicely.
I assume that you’ve already taken the sorting quiz on Pottermore, so you can take pride in your designated house with these crystal sorting hats from Etsy seller PottaMasterCrafter (the same guy behind the popular crystal Poke Balls).
Each crystal hat weighs over four pounds and features the crest and LED lights in the color of your chosen house. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Loot Crate’s SPEED box for September didn’t feature any items involving Keanu Reeves or a bus. Deep down, I think that’s what I was really looking for. Find out what it did include in the unboxing below. [click to continue…]
Last year belonged to Back To The Future. However, the celebrations are continuing with The first annual Back to the Future Fan Celebration that’s happening at the actual Twin Pines Mall (Puente Hills Mall in City of Industry, California) on October 25th. It runs from 4pm to 1:16am—31 years to the minute that Marty arrived at the mall to meet Doc.
But the really awesome news is that the event is free to attend and, according to HitFix, promises “celebrity autographs, live ’80s music, food trucks, contests, DeLoreans on display, and an outdoor screening of Back to the Future“.
Even if you can’t make it this year, the fact that it’s billed as an annual event means you’ll have plenty of opportunities down the line. You can get more information when it becomes available on the event website.
Last week the Voyager Golden Record project launched on Kickstarter to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the mission. Given that the record is currently 13 billion miles away from Earth, this is probably the closest any of us will ever get to experiencing this message as it was originally intended. However, this wonderful short film by Loïc Magar and Roman Veiga imagines the Voyager probe returning to a decaying Earth in the far off future, where the message is received not by extraterrestrials, but a little girl that finds its message just as alien.
The short, while a little somber, is well worth a watch. Check it out below. [click to continue…]
It appears that Jawas have grown tired of the desert, deciding instead to hang out on your lush green lawn. Curiously, all of the other lawn ornaments in the neighborhood have gone missing. Rumor has it that a Monster Gnome is in the works, and everyone is a little on edge about it. The fact that your 16-inch Jawa has glowing (solar powered) eyes isn’t helping.

Well, glorious unless you have OCD. You could spend hours pouring over dr_lugh‘s dice collection for issues—issues like the one r_kay noticed and commented on with the appropriate level of outrage:
THE TRANSLUCENT GREEN SET IN THE MIDDLE ROW JUST RIGHT OF CENTER HAS THE D12 AND D20 SWITCHED!
Plus the dice around the edge aren’t even all the way ’round. Aggghhhhhhhh!!!!
Unlock the hero within! Or, more accurately, unlock your front door and grab that hero you left in your fridge when you rushed out the door late for work. You’ll need that lunch to maintain your energy for the quest ahead.
Indeed, the Key Armory designs keys that look like swords—famous swords like lightsabers and gunblades in fact. There’s also a version based on the Hylian shield. Check out more designs below. [click to continue…]
It appears that the artists and writers at Bungie up and decided to make a children’s book based on Destiny called, appropriately enough, D Is For Destiny. It’s a clever strategy. The time that you should be spending with your kids instead of playing video games can now be spent talking to your kids about video games. Brilliant!
From the world of Destiny, this rhyming alphabet book created by the artists and writers at Bungie takes young readers on a voyage through a universe of adventure. From Four-Armed Fallen to the Mysteries of Mercury and the Moon, D is for Destiny makes exploring the far reaches of the solar system as easy as A, B, C.

Back in August, Ben Schwartz, aka Jean-Ralphio from Parks And Rec “confirmed” the popular fan theory that his character is actually the future son of Steve (Joe Keery) from Stranger Things. Well, thanks to the magic of the Internet, “The Upside Down Parent Trap” is finally a reality. Watch father and son bond in the posts below. [click to continue…]
