Misc. Nerdiness


John Marshall recently spent a month living by himself on an island in Maine, and he had a little bit of free time on his hands. He may also have gone a bit crazy.

So what did he do? Well, he used cardboard, scissors and his impressive sense of humor to create a photo series he calls, “Sunset Selfies“. With the sunset as a backdrop, he used cardboard cutouts to create some amusing (and often nerdy) scenes.

Check out some more of his selfies after the break…

When it comes to solving a dispute between roommates, there’s only one honorable option: a “Draghand Ball Z” battle! These guys dressed up their hands to look like Goku and Frieza, and the resulting Dragon Ball Z-style finger puppet battle became the most hardcore thumb war in history.

rebels press day

With season 2 of Star Wars Rebels coming up on October 14th, I had a chance to sit down and talk with Dave Filoni and Freddie Prinze, Jr. about what’s coming up for Season 2 and to ask a few other questions that have been percolating in my mind.

Not only were both of them were amazing to talk to and incredibly nice, but they shared some really cool tidbits about things like Sabine’s backstory (we’re going to get a deeper look at Mandalore) to Kanan’s strength and weaknesses as a Jedi, to the specific look of Star Wars Rebels and just how it’s connected to the Original Trilogy.

Between Freddie’s ability to connect Kanan Jarrus to Bruce Lee and Dave’s take on just what being a “director” means, there’s a lot here for fans of both Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars to enjoy.

Taker a listen after the break.

Earlier this year, a group co-workers who were tired of their drab office decided to cover the walls with a superhero mural made from over 8,000 Post-It notes. Four months later they decided it was time to reclaim the wall and get back to work, so they used a leaf blower to quickly destroy what to oodles of hours to create.

Watch the sad end of an era after the jump.

disney star wars

PistolShrimps took the trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens film and went full Disney with it. My personal favorite has to be the hyenas. I don’t think I’d mess with a blaster-carrying hyena.
