LIFE-SIZED IRON THRONEMy living room houses a badass dragon bust (meant to hold a sword, but we just haven't found the right one for us yet, you know?), statues of both Gandalf & Gollum, a bottle of True Blood, Harry Potter's letter from Hogwarts, the Marauder's Map, a chocolate frog, decrees from Dolores Umbridge, & Game of Thrones steins (from houses Stark & Targaryen). The only thing left to complete this nerd oasis can be purchased here.

PROMETHEUS vs JOEL McHALEThere is a Prometheus viral video going around - an advertisement for the android Michael Fassbender plays in the movie. There are no spoilers, just a little information on the kind of robotic feat "David" is:
Joel McHale did a spoof of this video for The Soup. It is all kinds of amazing.
At Buzzfeed, they broke both down into sections, for a detailed comparison. Did chess ever stand a chance against Hungry Hungry Hippos & table tossing? Joel FTW.
20 SMILING SLOTHS20 smiling sloths. That's all it is. Click on that link & check out 19 more photos of cuteness like these:
|This guy didn't even make the list. THAT'S HOW CUTE THEY ARE.|
I love these photos & I understand Kristen Bell's over-the-top obsession with sloths. If you haven't seen her freak out & become overwhelmed with joy at the thought of being near a real sloth, you must watch it now. Hilarious.
WOOKIIE/EWOK DRESSAt etsy, you can buy yourself (or me) this cute, furry dress that with a few adjustments can be either a Wookiie dress or an Ewok dress:
But where would you wear such a thing?, you ask? THEN YOU DON'T DESERVE THE WOOKIIE DRESS.
Among other items the seller, Nerd Alert Designs, has on offer is this super cute dress featuring the illustrations from Alice in Wonderland. YES.
VOICE ACTORS READ STAR WARS
This took place at a Seattle ComicCon in March, 2012. Voice actors from some of the most iconic cartoons of the past few decades (Ren & Stimpy, Pinky & the Brain, Futurama, Transformers...) pulled out their voices & some impersonations to read the Star Wars script like you've never heard it before. The characters/voices switch between scenes, but a few of my favourite choices are Bender (Futurama) as Luke, William Shatner as C-3P0, & Christopher Walken as R2-D2. And the whole thing is narrated by Batman. EPIC.
STAR WARS RELATIVITY (M.C. ESCHER)This is just too cool. Paul Vermeesch has built a LEGO diorama of M.C. Escher's famous mind-bending print, Relativity:
Check out this page, where more detail from each section/scene is shown, including Vader cutting off Luke's hand. Awesome work.
HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK PHOTOS OF METAL/HARD ROCK MUSICIANSEven the most badass of badasses had high school yearbook photos. These are funny. Alice Cooper, Jon Bon Jovi & Scott Weiland made me giggle. Linkin Park's Chester looks like every single guy in my high school yearbook, but only one made me laugh. Out loud.
