Misc. Nerdiness


While a Zelda film from Studio Ghibli is highly unlikely, just looking at these movie posters by artist Matt Vince makes me feel like it’s already happened.

They are, in a word, stunning.

Maker Bob Clagett was hired to build a pair of giant lightsabers for a holiday display and the results are pretty fantastic. Just the thing to pair with that giant inflatable Jabba you bought for the lawn.

If you’d like to make some giant lightsabers for your own home, you’ll be glad to hear that the process was actually pretty straightforward. Plus, the entire build was documented in the short video below.

You may have heard that Donna and The Doctor are adventuring together again in Doctor Who Tenth Doctor audio dramas. Now you can check out a sample.

They’re arguing. It’s brilliant.

We’ve also got a clip of Tennant and Tate saying nice things about each other while discussing what it’s like to work together again. Check them both out below.

Leafy Pokémon


Japanese Twitter user xxx2251 transformed autumn leaves into a work of Pokémon art! He made both a Charizard and a Charmander using the leaves, and the final products look awesome.

Bit of a fire hazard though.

As part of a promotional campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Japanese Nankai Rapi:t train service hopped aboard the hype train (quite literally).

The train runs between Namba Station in Osaka City and the Kansai International Airport. As you can see below, every single part of the train, from the exterior to the cabins, boasts an eye-catching Force Awakens-themed makeover.

super science friends

Ok, so picture the Justice League, only replace those heroes with a team of famous scientists like Darwin, Tesla, Curie and Einstein, then give them superpowers and the ability to time travel. That’s the crazy recipe for the animated series Super Science Friends.

Super Science Friends was created by Brett Jubinville, animated by a lot of talented people at Tinman Creative Studios, and was successfully kickstarted November 2014. It features a team of time-travelling super scientists led by Winston Churchill who travel through time fighting nazis, zombies and all manner of sciency villains!

The first episode (which features tons of wacky but exciting fun) is up on Vimeo and you can watch it below.

daily darth

Photographer Pawel Kadysz is in the midst of a humorous photography project focused on the daily life of Darth Vader. He notes:

This is an ongoing project, updated with one new photo every day. I plan to continue until the Episode VII premiere. And if I get really hooked up, for a whole year. That would be a hell of achievement.

As for the gear, I’m using a mirrorless Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark I with few M.Zuiko lenses and a cheap, amateur strobe. I’m not a professional photographer. Just an amateur with a will to learn and improve. The photos below are all selfies.

hunger games bow

We’ve seen Man At Arms make a lot of cool things, but watching them tackle Katniss’ bow from The Hunger Games is pretty damn impressive. For example, the handle is carved out of a single 19-pound block of aluminum.

The Empire has launched their Christmas attack before Thanksgiving, but we were prepared thanks to “Black Friday” deals that started in like…October.
