Misc. Nerdiness

deadpool variant

The new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic was unveiled yesterday and Clark Gregg showed off both the main cover (which has a monkey) and this Deadpool variant with the comment that “Even Deadpool does some carving.”

If only the Deadpool film rights weren’t owned by Fox!

Still, it’s a killer variant and the main cover is pretty cool too. You can check it out after the break.

i've fallen

Watching people fall down without receiving serious injuries is funny stuff. It’s as timeless as fart jokes. It turns out the action is just as amusing when it happens to CGI people. Visual effects artist Dave Fothergill recently tested the crowd dynamics function with Miarmy for Maya, and it shows people running into a rotating object – they all fall and none of them can get up. It’s way funnier than it should be.

Watch the silliness after the break.

every weapon james harvey

Comic artist James Harvey posted this drawing on Reddit with the following explanation:

I’m James Harvey, comic artist for Image. I got asked to redraw one of my drawings from when I was 7 years old, so I redrew a picture of a man carrying “EVERY WEAPON EVER INVENTED”

Not only did this foray into nostalgia give us a very cool new drawing, but we also got to see the original drawing from when he was 7 years old.

There are all sorts of clever vanity plates out there and a lot of them are very nerdy, but this one has to be the best of the lot. It was captured by Redditor funboixero on a car in Houston, Texas. Looks like the Professor has one badass set of wheels when he’s not busy getting things done at the school. And yes, the owner was in a wheelchair, but no word on whether or not he was bald.

titan city

I’m going to go on record as saying that I think Duncan Parcells aka ColonialPuppet on XBox Live is probably going to take over the world someday. Anyone who dedicates 2 years to make this gorgeously detailed 4.5 million block city in Minecraft on the XBox has the ability to do anything when they put their mind to it.

He calls it Titan City and he plans to finish it up on XBox and permanently move it to PC where he can make it even larger.

Like I said, evil genius in the making.

Check out the images and video after the break to see all the detail.

momoa
Video of Jason Momoa’s audition tape for Game Of Thrones recently surfaced and it’s no wonder he got the job!

In the audition, Momoa performs a Maori Haka. While it’s not perfect if you’re going for cultural accuracy, it’s fierce, spellbinding, and perfectly Khal Drogo.

Check it out after the break.

Is this haunted room actually stretching? It is, but the stars of the Haunted Mansion’s stretching portraits have been replaced with characters from Disney’s animated films. Artist Laura Knighton took the morbid illustrations and added her own spin to the theme with Ariel, Jane, Belle (that one’s my favorite), and Tiana. They’re all doomed! I love that she didn’t do a straight up re-creation of the existing portraits.

See the individual pieces after the break.

dead

We previously featured a bad lip reading version of The Walking Dead and now we’ve got another one that will have you laughing hysterically despite the impending doom all the characters face. Also, glue police? Hey, if Daryl says he’s the glue police then I’m not arguing with him.
