Though I’ve never seen Parks and Recreation, I can appreciate any show with characters who like Game of Thrones. In this deleted scene from the episode “Anniversaries,” Leslie gives Ben a replica of the Iron Throne (you can buy one too) and he freaks out. His reaction is priceless and absolutely the way any fan would react when receiving such an epic gift. I’m kinda in love with his character now.

Filming for the next season of Doctor Who has been under way for a while, and intrepid fans have been tracking down the shoots to get a glimpse at the happenings. Seeing the new Doctor, Peter Capaldi, is probably at the forefront of any visitor’s mind, and that was definitely true for one little girl in a Dalek costume. Roxann and her family luckily happened upon shooting in Cardiff. Over at her blog, her mother says:
“My youngest has autism and when matt smith said he was leaving she was worried, because she goes on adventures with doctor who and Clara and she was worried that the new doctor ( Peter ) would not like her and wouldn’t want to join in her games.”
So, Roxann patiently waited and she finally got her chance to talk with Peter Capaldi. The new Doctor reassured Roxann in the sweetest way. He took out his phone and scrolled through photos to show the girl one of him, Matt Smith, and Jenna Coleman. Then he told Roxann, “They say it’s okay for me to be the Doctor, so I hope you think it would be okay for me to be the Doctor too.” Sniffle.

We’ve all been demanding our flying cars and flying skateboards for years now, and this “commercial” would have you believe that at least one of those dreams has come true. It’s for the HUVr flying skateboard and the video is introduced by none other than Christopher Lloyd aka Doc Brown. It then goes on to include some famous faces like Moby, Tony Hawk, Billy Zane, and Terrell Owens singing the hoverboard’s praises.
Unfortunately, Devin Faraci has crushed all of our dreams and confirmed that it is but a viral video created by the folks at Funny or Die. However, I have no doubt that we will get our hoverboards and shoes with self-tying laces one day.

This business card is designed to look like a Game Boy and includes a working version of Tetris that practically guarantees it will not end up in the trash. It’s the creation of Kevin Bates who made the 1.6 millimeter thick business card based on a stripped down Arduino board.
The whole thing works on a single coin-cell battery that will keep it running for nine hours before it needs to be replaced. Bates says he’ll be releasing the plans to the public, but first he may try crowdsourcing some funding to perfect the design.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street has a name that begs to be mashed up with Star Trek. We’ve already seen a parody poster featuring Worf in the starring role, and now there’s a frakking perfect trailer for The Worf of Starfleet. It’s put together in the same style as the original, and YouTube user doubleg1701 has chosen just the right scenes and clips for the silly cut. This is a movie I desperately want to see.

Nintendo, believe it or not, has been around since the 19th century, so it makes sense that the company would be so big on making sure that its employees are keenly aware of its unique history. Case in point: All employees at Nintendo–including folks who make the first few application stages but don’t land a full-time gig–receive a company guide that highlights the entire history of the card and video game manufacturer.
Before Mario, a Nintendo fan blog, posted some pics of this year’s guidebook, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s basically a guideline of all of the products the company has made, and it features a wonderful collection of illustrations that are done in a hand-drawn sort of style, similar to the hanafuda gaming cards that the company fist produced. The products portrayed include original Nintendo toys like the Love Tester and Nintendo Color TV Game 15.
Talk about a colorful way to highlight over 100 years of amazing technological development!

Fox News is gonna have to come up with some new graphics in the “War On Christmas” stories, because Santa’s getting an origin story that’s rooted in Viking mythology, called Winter’s Knight.
Sony Pictures will be teaming up with Kon-Tiki producers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg and writers Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton to bring a script to life that’s loosely based on L. Frank Baum’s 1902 book “The Life And Adventures Of Santa Claus.” Presumably it features Santa as a Viking Warrior who fights yetis 364 days a year and then gives out their heads as presents for Christmas.
What? It would be so cool.
