bean bag throne 1

Want to bring a little taste of King’s Landing into your home? Nerd by Night has come up with a way to turn the Iron Throne into the most epic bean bag chair ever. You’ll have to put in time and effort to create this throne and steps include painting the fabric, sewing it into place, and stuffing it with foam and bean bag beans. But at the end of the day, all the sweat and tears are going to be completely worth it.

See the chair in use after the break.

3D printers can print just about anything these days, even pizzas. But now, thanks to a program called Mineways, 3D printers can print actual Minecraft worlds. Dave Russell is a hardcore Minecraft fan, and he used the open source 3D program to bring his digital creations to life.

zelda tarot main

This Legend Of Zelda Tarot Deck by Pixel Perks is a beautiful example of what happens when one geekdom meets another and a new thing of beauty is born.

Whether you read Tarot or you just like unique decks, this is definitely a cool set of Major Arcana, and Pixel Perks says she’s working on a Minor Arcana as well and will have full 78-card decks available sometime in May.

You can see more of the Legend Of Zelda Major Arcana after the break.

frozen got parody

Parodies of “Let It Go” aren’t exactly rare, but wonderful ones like this Game of Thrones take on the song from Frozen don’t come along very often. The mash-up turns “Let It Go” into “Westeros” and features Daenerys, Jon, and Joffrey singing about winning the Iron Throne. The lyrics are terrific, the production quality of the video is solid, and the singing is excellent. I call this mash-up a must watch – it’s that good.

Watch the video after the break.

simpsons lego

May the 4th may be Star Wars Day, but this year, it’s also LEGO day on The Simpsons.

The show’s 550th episode is called “Brick Like Me” and is written by co-executive producer Brian Kelley and overseen by executive producer Matt Selman. They sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the episode and have released a couple of images to show what fans can expect.

Discussions ranged from The LEGO Movie to whether the Blockoland episode is still canon and, all in all, it’s a pretty good read.

Head after the break for a great picture of Homer and some interesting excerpts from the interview.
