Daniel Radcliffe may have been a brilliant wizard in Harry Potter, but he’s a lousy receptionist in real life. The actor spent an hour manning the desk at Nylon Magazine and he was hilariously terrible. He has no idea how to use the phone, doesn’t know which packages are for which couriers, and barely manages to find one poor woman the key to the restroom. There must be some sort of spell for that.

dirty dancing dubsmash

Have you been following the epic dubsmash battle between the Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. casts over the last few days? They’ve been trying to outdo each other but Hayley Atwell is going to be hard to beat. Her dubsmash is super extra meta because her choice of music was (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing.

Why is this so perfect?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D star Clark Gregg is married to Jennifer Grey of Dirty Dancing fame. It’s absolutely brilliant.

Man at Arms is adding to their already impressive collection of replicas with the katana from Kill Bill. However, this build was made more difficult since it followed traditional Japanese methods. Pretty much everything was made from scratch and it’s super interesting to watch.

See it come together in the after the break.

tie-fighter-star-wars-music=box

At a whopping $18,400+, the MusicMachine 3 just sounds like debt to me.

With an obvious passion for sci-fi, watchmakers MB&F created a TIE fighter-themed music box with an over the top level of craftsmanship. On either side there is an over-sized roller dotted with over 1,400 tiny pins that have each been assembled by hand into 1,400 tiny drill holes. The precision-tuned 72-tooth comb made from special steel alloy plays six distinct tunes including the themes from Star Wars, James Bond, Mission Impossible, The Godfather, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, and The Persuaders.

To celebrate its tenth anniversary in 2015, MB&F only issued 99 of these limited edition music makers with the tagline “A creative adult is a child who survived.” And I hope that creative, surviving child of their target market is also a rich one.

Listen to the dainty music box sounds of the Star Wars theme after the break.
