Sailor Moon Crystal premiered this month and is available on Hulu, rebooting the popular 1990′s anime series. But if you need something to hold you over in-between the bi-weekly episode release, here’s a suggestion: rock out to “Moon Pride,” the extended theme music video that features all of the Sailor Scouts.

“Moon Prism Power Make up!”

queen's guards game of thrones

YouTuber Omer Barnea stopped by Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guards last week and heard the Queen’s Guards play something unexpected: the theme song from the Game of Thrones. It takes a few notes to pick up the familiar tune, but it sounds closer and closer to the original as it goes on. Hey, at least it wasn’t “The Rains of Castamere.”

Many Capt Americas

Marvel Comics recently announced that Sam Wilson AKA the Falcon, the first African-American superhero, will be taking over the role of Captain America from his old friend and partner Steve Rogers. People are still discussing their feelings on this, how long they think it will last, and what it means for the larger picture of the superhero industry. But did you know there have been many other people over the years who have stood in for Steve as the Star-Spangled Avenger? We’re not just talking about those times that Hawkeye put on the suit for an issue.

Let’s delve into the many Captain Americas after the break . . .

cthulhu money 2

Bitcoin is old news, people. The Ancient Ones that H.P. Lovecraft tried to warn us about in his dark, twisted tales are getting in on the crypto currency game via a site called Cthulhu Offerings. The site claims: “Four weeks and five days long it builds until Cthulhu awakens and one worshipper is rewarded greatly!”

Cthulhu and his invincible, demonic ilk are soon to awaken but need sacrifices from worshippers. To do this, Cthulhu Offerings has resorted to bribing us via the internet. The instructions are:

During the first and second weeks of the ritual, sacrificial amounts are placed in special, once a day blocks. These blocks are a reward to the worshipper for sacrifice made. During the third and fourth weeks of the ritual the rewards build, small at first, then larger as the worship increases with fervor. During the last five days, the ‘Tharanak shagg,’ or “promise of dreamland,” the ritual reaches final pitch and the daily special blocks are highly increased. Finally Cthulhu will return after the xxx665th offering has paid tribute to the Great Old One and he will bestow a bounty deserving of Him upon one lucky worshiper. The ritual can be repeated after six months time, following the great halving.

Well that seems not weird at all.

Geek fans love their mash ups and crossovers and I’m pretty sure we’ve seen a Thor/Disney princess mash up along the way, but it’s always magical when these kinds of things come true. In this case, Twitterer Daft Brian pointed out that Thor is now technically a Disney Princess thanks to the recent reveal from Marvel of a female Thor.

pokeshaming

We’ve seen kid shaming, pet shaming and even D20 shaming, but thanks to a new Tumblr meme, we have Pokémon shaming — which may be the best shaming ever.

Head after the break to see some great examples.

It looks like Redditor daandruff’s wife is quite the Browncoat. He posted the above pic of his wife’s painting of everybody’s favorite Firefly-class transporter, Serenity (look closely: does it look like the primary bumper panel fell off? No? Good. Mal will be happy), and I have to say that she did an awesome job.

However, as commenters pointed out, the only problem is that the stars are visible in front of the planets. The good news is that fellow Redditor jaxspider saved the day with Photoshop. See the corrected version after the break…

Capture

The guys at tvtag decided that they wanted to send a bobblehead into space, and they turned to the public to see which one had the right stuff. It was close, but Walter White beat out Daryl Dixon and even Daenerys Targaryen and got his chance to fly.

They launched Walter at Goblin Valley State Park, Utah and he landed 250 miles away in Wyoming. They say they’ll launch more bobbleheads into space in the future, as long as the equipment holds together.

The Harry Potter series only showed us what happened to Harry as a young man, which may have left you wondering about how the rest of his life played out.

As you probably know by now, J.K. Rowling recently gave us all a glimpse in a new short story that mentions Harry as a 34-year old. Using that as inspiration, these book titles imagine a whole new series chronicling the life of a middle-aged Harry Potter facing all sorts of challenges like, mortgages, putting kids through school, and the side-effects of that little blue pill.

This glorious mashup between Game of Thrones and Adventure Time is the combined effort of Joe Hogan and Mike Vasquez. The characters look just fantastic with Finn making for an absolutely fierce Jon Snow.
