There are some things you just don’t want to see your childhood heroes, animated and otherwise, doing to themselves or each other.

The Mountain: Killer Game of Thrones Fan Art

Image Credit: Marvin del Mondo

Though I will refrain from mentioning what makes the Mountain character from Game of Thrones so important (in case people are still catching up on books or last season), but it is safe to say he is one of the more intimidating characters ever put into a universe like this. Just a lumbering mountain of a man (sorry, that was too good to resist) who seems like he could stomp anyone who steps in his way to death without batting an eye.

DeviantART member Paranoidvin (Marvin del Mundo) made this amazing representation of the character that really just sums him up incredibly well. He is a man named after a mountain for a reason, and this piece really seems to capture that.

The hollowed eyes in the background? Well, I wont ruin that for you, but brilliant touch.

Let's Do Nothing in Video Games

Anyone who has been playing video games for a huge portion of their lives can tell you, if you put the controller down and let the character just idle, there will often be a special animation you are treated to. It varies from character to character, and seems to involve the character either breaking the fourth wall (think Sonic the Hedgehog), which you will see in this video, to characters who just seem bored and want to entertain themselves while you are ignoring them. They are sometimes funny, sometimes snarky, but always incredibly witty and help foster the love most of us have for gaming. It's nerd stuff added to nerd stuff, which makes it even MORE cool.

(YouTube Link)

YouTube User Master of Hyrule has put together this pretty awesome collection of idle animations from many video games over the past years. You don't even have to be a gamer to appreciate the thought and work put into some of these animations, even though the developers were aware some people may never slow down enough to apprecite them.

Well, now we can.

It almost makes you stop for a moment and wonder what other wondeful little things you may have missed in some of these games.

15 Fun Facts About The Boxtrolls

Whether you love dark children's stories, are obsessed with stop motion or classic underdog stories, chances are you'll love The Boxtrolls. Whether you've seen it already or are planning to go soon, these fun little bits of trivia can only make you help appreciate the film even more.

Image via Chynbek [Deviant Art]

It's directed by two n00bs. The film is a directorial movie debut for co-director Graham Annable (though he has directed video games) and is only the second picture directed by co-director Anthony Stacchi, who previously directed Open Season. Of course, that's not to say that the directors don't have any experience in the industry. Annable's resume includes credits on Star Wars: Episode III, Paranorman, Sam and Max and Coraline, while Stacchi has worked on such big name films as Back to the Future, Hook, The Rocketeer, Ghost, James and the Giant Peach and Antz.

The voices might sound pretty familiar. The voice acting cast includes some of the most famous British actors around, including Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Sir Ben Kingsley, Isaac Hempstead-Wright (who plays Bran Stark on Game of Thrones), Jared Harris (who was Lane Pryce in Mad Men) and Richard Ayoade  (who plays Moss on The IT crowd). Other names you may recognize Tracy Morgan and Elle Fanning (who played Aurora in Maleficent.

Image via Hasaniwalker [DeviantArt]

The characters always look on the bright side of life. Well, they at least sing like that. Despite the characters looking almost Tim Burton-esque, the songs sound distinctly Monty Python. That's because they were written by Eric Idle himself.

Where do Boxtrolls get names like Fish, Shoe and Eggs? From the labels on the boxes they wear as clothes, of course.

Why does Eggs (the main character) speak English instead of regular Boxtroll language like his adopted family? Because he has a speech impediment, of course.

Boston airport helped produce backup sounds. Aside from the voices and songs, there are a lot of other noises in the film. Since the Boxtrolls are tinkerers who make all kinds of crazy gadgets and gizmos from stuff they steal from the humans above ground, the film needed some distinctly gadget-like noise. They found the source for their sound in some public art on display at the Boston airport that basically consists of metal machines that do nothing functional.

It's loosely based on a book.

If Marvel Can Never Fail, Then It Can Make a Movie about Anything and Earn Millions

Honestly, I had never heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book franchise before Marvel Studios turned it into a movie that has earned more than half a billion dollars.

I'm a DC man, but I'll admit the obvious truth: Marvel knows how to make movies that bring in money--lots of money. The X-Men, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Avengers movies have been hugely successful.

(Video Link)

Chris Pratt, one of the stars of Guardians of the Galaxy, hosted this weekend's new episode of Saturday Night Live. In one video sequence, SNL arrives at a reasonable conclusion: Marvel cannot fail. Every movie that Marvel can make, no matter how weirdly conceived, will draw in audiences and their money.

Music Video Reveals A Day In The Life Of A Black Metal Teenager

Being a teenager is hard enough, but when you choose to live musically and fashionably on the dark side of life your teen years can feel like a total nightmare.

This teen angst is multiplied when you decide to wear spikes and chains as accessories, or choose to be part of a subculture where you're encouraged to paint your face.

(YouTube Link)

This semi-factual sorta documentary style music video was created by Jogger way back in 2009, revealing the hard life of a suburban black metal kid.

The song sounds more Sega Master System than Satyricon, but the visuals are pure METAL!!!

Batman Evolution

(YouTube link)

Batfans are going to love this! The Piano Guys perform a medley of Batman themes, in chronological order, spanning 50 years. They also have some great visual elements, with different versions of the Batmobile and film sets serving as their backdrop (or is it batdrop?). Don’t be discouraged by the length of the video; the song is only four minutes long. The rest is an ad for their new album. -via Viral Viral Videos

A Magic: the Gathering Wedding Proposal



Lindsey Loree had more on her mind than a fun game of Magic: the Gathering when she interrupted her boyfriend Eric's Lego fun to ask him to play the game with her. Her request didn't seem to Eric to be anything out of the ordinary, as he had been teaching her to play for six months. But what happened during their game was nothing ordinary. As Eric told the story (his account is here and her account is here), 

"We’re in the middle of the game and both hovering around ten life. She’s looking awfully giddy and I’m thinking she’s got some power card that’ll spell doom for me. So I play Time Spiral. She was not happy. We reset and on her turn she smiled and threw a card on the table. What I felt next was confusion. What was that card? Five white for a sorcery and the picture was some dude kissing a girl? There’s no card like that. Well, there is now."

What Lindsey handed him was the card below, asking Eric to marry her. 


Quite a game changer! He goes on with his story,

"Of course I said yes. I made a joking fuss about how her cards were sleeved and mine weren’t and how it’d be really hard to shuffle them. Then she gave me a ring pop, to make it official.

Now, there was a little cheating on her part. I Time Spiraled the card back into her library and while I was shuffling she dropped it in her lap to make sure it was in her next hand. But I suppose that can be forgiven given the circumstances."

Way to be flexible with the rules when necessary! Congratulations to the happy couple. -Via Geekologie.

Game Of Thrones Intro Reimagined As An Old Man Eating Soup

The Game Of Thrones title sequence isn’t the most exciting intro on television, although it does sport a pretty intense soundtrack, so when fans want to make their own version of the intro they can really go either way.

YouTuber Lexavian decided to go the low action way with their reimagined intro, to compensate for the abundance of exciting moments in the show.

Behold the epic excitement of an old man eating a bowl of soup!

(YouTube Link)

Chances are you'll hear the Game of Thrones theme song every time you heat up a can of Progresso (Red) Wedding Soup from here on out...

Is Destiny One of the Worst Games of the Year?

Image Via Bungie

Let me start this off by saying I am in-between camps right now when it comes to this game. The following thoughts and feelings on Destiny do not represent Neatorama's feelings about the game whatsoever. That disclaimer made, writer Dan Seitz over at Uproxx put together his thoughts on the game right here, and he has some very hefty accusations to lob at Destiny. But the truth is, going from reviews and people I have talked to, he sums up a good portion of how many gamers feel about the game that was to be Bungie's FIRST non-Halo game. One particular thing that seemed to stand out to him: 

Destiny’s problems come into painfully sharp relief once you hit level 20, which the game has capped as the highest level you can earn through experience points. You can get up to level 30 by collecting gear that has “Light” as an attribute; the more light you have, the higher your level. One problem; the loot system is designed to keep you playing the same missions over and over again on the off-chance you’ll collect a Legendary or Rare engram… which has a strong chance of turning out to be complete and total vendor trash you’ll never use. 

Though I will need a little more time with the game myself before I can determine my own solid thoughts, it just seems fair to represent all sides of the coin. Whether you agree or not, his piece is very well thought out, and makes some very valid points about a game that could have potentially been a game-changer, but might have just missed that mark.

Super Fun Animated Sci-Fi Short - Space Cat Hob

We share lots of animated shorts here on Neatorama, but they're rarely as beautiful, and fun to watch, as Loïc Bramoullé’s colorful masterpiece Space Cat Hob.

(Vimeo Link)

Loïc’s delightful short is full of fun character designs, interesting environments and a perfectly alien color palette, and this labor of sci-fi love took Loïc and his friends over two years to complete.

If you enjoyed the film as much as I did you should take a look at Loïc’s amazing concept art for the film, so you can see how well he was able to translate his art style into the environments and character designs in the film.

24 Dangerous Toys from Past and Present

Image Credit: Bill Kolb

I have this weird fascination with deadly kid's toys. Meaning toys for children that generally were not well thought out or were not looked into ahead of time for safety precautions. In the 50's, you could pretty much hand cancer-causing mercury to kids and tell them to play with it. But thankfully, over time, things have changed.

The cool thing, we don't forget.

A great many of these deadly and dangerous toys may not exist anymore, but our minds wont let us erase them. There is a list of 24 Dangerous Toys from Past and Present over at URLesque, and I wont lie, a few of the items on the list shocked me. We are not just talking about small objects kids could choke on. We are talking about toys that could seriously kill your child. Like the above pictured "Atomic Energy Lab" which was just chock full of things no child should ever handle without a hazmat suit.

Now you just need to sit a kid down in front of the TV with a video game controller in their hand and they are fine for hours. But in the olden days, fun often went hand-in-hand with the risk of injury or death. I mean, all I need to end this on is two words to make my point:

Lawn darts.

Line-X and the Unsmashable Watermelon

So do you guys know about Line-X? Normally, I try to avoid shilling products here, but this is science at some of its most mind-blowing, and you sort of need to see it to believe it. The long and the short is, Line-X is a spray coating full of polymers that makes pretty much anything in the world indestructible (shoulda tried it on my last relationship, wokka wokka).

What really makes the product so awesome is that they willingly test it on their YouTube channel. The stuff really blows the mind, but is taken to a whole new level when they try a watermelon smash. I think it is pretty clear how this will turn out, but you need to witness it yourself so that you can walk around all day buzzed off the madness of modern science. I am refraining from quoting Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad right now, but I think you know what I am thinking.

Hidden Images In Album Cover Artwork

(Image Link)

Cover art is a big part of a vinyl record's appeal, and some of the greatest artists of all time have created cool artwork to accompany killer cuts- Robert Crumb, Roger Dean, H.R. Giger, Edward Gorey and Andy Warhol, just to name a few.

(Image Link)

Over the years many of these cover artists have chosen to take the visual appeal even further by adding hidden images to their album artwork, like easter eggs for music lovers to discover while they listen to their new favorite album.

Some are more obvious, like the skull on Def Lepard's album Retro Active, others require a bit of a search, like the faces of The Beatles hidden in the cover art for The Rolling Stones album Their Satanic Majesties Request.

(Image Link)

And what about the images found on the cover of Supertramp's Breakfast In America? They're best seen with hungry eyes.

Mental Floss put together an interesting collection of 10 Hidden Images on Album Covers, complete with the stories behind these captivating images record lovers stared at while grooving to their favorite tunes.

Celebrate Nintendo's 125th Anniversary With Some Clever Cosplay

(Image Link)

Video game juggernaut Nintendo Co., Ltd. just celebrated their 125th anniversary on September 23rd, which is hard to believe since many people first came into contact with the company when they released the NES console.

(Image Link)

Nintendo started out as makers of playing and trading cards, opening their doors on September 23, 1889, and even though they've moved on to bigger and better things they still make Hanafuda playing cards to this day.

(Image Link)

Nintendo tried their hand at building pachinko machines, running a taxi service, and they even created their own brand of instant rice before becoming the innovative electronic gaming company we know and love.

(Image Link)

Gamma Squad celebrated the quasquicentennial with a fun Nintendo themed cosplay/costume gallery, which pretty much kills two birds with one stone considering Halloween is right around the corner!

Danny Elfman Reads A Nightmare Before Christmas At Disneyland

Danny Elfman should be known first and foremost as the lead singer/co-creator of Oingo Boingo, but since Boingo has been sent to the Oldies section by millennials he's probably best known as the guy who created The Simpsons theme song.

He also composed the theme song for the 1989 Batman movie, and continued to work with friend Tim Burton by composing all the music for A Nightmare Before Christmas, in which Elfman also sings many songs as Jack Skellington.

(YouTube Link)

Danny made a special appearance outside of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion Holiday to honor this delightfully dark tale of holiday horror by reading an excerpt from Burton's original poem that started it all.

The video is a bit short, but it's pretty much just an ad for Danny Elfman's Music From The Films Of Tim Burton concert and Disneyland so of course they keep you wanting more!

How To Make Ferrofluids

Ferrofluid, by definition, is a fluid that contains a magnetic suspension. We have posted them sculptures and videos with them before, but to most people, the idea of ever being able to play with the stuff seemed unlikely. Well, guess what? You can make your own ferrofluid, and do all the playing and experimenting with it that you want. 

Heck, maybe you will even end up making a scultpture with the stuff that we will feature one day on this site. Life is insane like that. You never know.

The Wonders of The Blue Ball Machine

Image Credit: YouTube

Do you ever find yourself looking at something, and somehow just losing yourself in its intricacies? It can be artwork, or a moment glimpsing at the sky, but it just grabs you, and in that moment, nothing else exists? That is how I feel about the Blue Ball Machine. I think that title sounds a little off-color, so we I will avoid using that expression again.

Just trust me. Click the above link, and be prepared to be sucked in. A couple of pieces of advice before you do go there. It may seem old-school and overwhelming at first, but the way to find a flow to it all is watch just one ball is it runs its journey through the machine. Before you know it, you are sitting there, glued to your screen at this mesmerizing display.

It may look old-school, and may seem archaic, but who cares? Once you get enraptured by the machine, little else will matter. At least for a minute or two, anyway.

Stephen King's Novels Summarized In 140 Characters Or Less

Stephen King is one of America’s most beloved authors, and his fan base has bridged the gap between horror aficionados and mainstream readers like nobody has before.

But what about those who are new to King’s dark world? It could take them years to read every book King has ever written, and who has time to read full length books?

Author and columnist Max Booth III took a note from Twitter and summarized each book in the Stephen King library using 140 characters or less, so people with short attention spans can catch up on their reading in about five minutes.

Now you can tell your King fan friends that the plot to Carrie is actually "The tale of a brave girl with telekinesis taking the Ice Water Challenge during prom", and that The Shining is simply a story where "A writer fights his family". It's so easy!

You can read all of Max's perfectly concise summarizations over at LitReactor

Classic Legend Of Zelda Artwork By Katsuya Terada

The original version of The Legend of Zelda on the NES became a classic because of the fun action gameplay, the lengthy RPG storyline, and the many hidden secrets gamers delighted in uncovering as they played through the game.

It didn’t become a classic because of the in-game artwork, because at the time of its release the 8-bit color palette was so limited that the game designers were simply doing the best with the amount of pixels they were given.

However, Japanese illustrator Katsuya Terada was creating all kinds of simply beautiful artwork based on the Legend of Zelda universe, which could be found in game booklets, magazines like Nintendo Power and various art books released in the late 80s.

These amazing illustrations show the land of Hyrule, and the adventures of a brave boy named Link, as they would've looked if games like The Legend of Zelda and A Link To The Past were released today.

You can see a great collection of Katsuya Terada's artwork created for The Legend of Zelda here

Top Ten Saddest Robot Deaths

Robots in cinema are awesome. Since most of us were children, we always wanted a cool, nice, tough robot to be our friend, and it never seems to happen. But that is the beauty of the magic of film. In film, robots can be awesome and friendly and cute. The other problem with cinema is that they love to kill things off in the end. It is like a painful lesson of life, squeezed into 90 minutes. Everything you ever love will die. Yet I digress, lest I depress myself and you even more than this list might.

I figure now would be the best time to embrace the idea of "good robots", as it seems that our takeover at the hands of evil ones will be happening at some point in near the future, and when that happens, lists like this will be more positive to us than sad. But for now, while we still love them and they have yet to kill any of our families, this list is awesome (in a sad kind of way).

(YouTube Link)

Pardon me for a moment while I sob for the Iron Giant. If you dig this vid, WatchMojo has more like it over at their YouTube page. Go show them some love.

The Largest Sci-Fi Spaceship Size Comparison Chart Ever Created

Spaceships are an integral part of most science fiction franchises, a seriously massive piece of the puzzle that serves as a catalyst for heroic action, a getaway vehicle in times of need, and occasionally as a home for spacefaring characters.

There are so many different ships, in so many shapes and sizes, that it’s hard to keep track of them all, but now you don’t have to devote any more mental energy to the task thanks to this massive size comparison chart created by Dirk Loechel.

It’s officially the largest spaceship chart ever created, an update of Dirk's earlier version which we featured here on Neatorama a year ago, and as far as anyone can tell it's the most complete and up-to-date spaceship chart in the universe.

Don't look at it too closely for too long, or it might put stars in your eyes!

Why You Need To Go To The "Staggering Beauty" Website

Image Credit: George Michael Brower

First, I want to tell you Staggering Beauty is a game. No, no, maybe it is a website. Perhaps, it is just an interactive art project that you can play with and manipulate to your own whims.Then it dawns on me. It doesn't matter what it is. Stuff like this does not need to be put in a box and labeled, when what works so well about it is the very fact that you cannot do that with it.

Maybe instead of me deeply philosophizing about this, you should just hop over to Staggering Beauty and check it out for yourself. Put together by Google Creative Labs designer, George Michael Brower, and though it is simple and design and execution, there is something that just sucks you in and keeps you there. 

Once you pop over there and mess with it a little bit, you will see just what I am talking about. Simple? Yes. But there is something staggeringly beautiful about that.

A Scary Good Spawn Fan Film

The Hellspawn anti-hero known simply as Spawn has starred in dozens of different comic series spanning hundreds of issues, an amazing yet short lived animated series, and a pretty bad live action film.

So why is this badass comic book character, with so much movie storyline potential, still waiting around for a decent movie adaptation?

Your guess is as good as mine, but until we get to see that great big screen movie we’ll just have to settle for this awesome short film by Irissee entitled Spawn: The Recall.

(YouTube Link)

On second thought, settle really isn’t the right word, since this fan film is more fun to watch than the '97 movie!

Hollywood movie studios need to help Todd McFarlane's hellish anti-hero out, he's only been around for twenty some odd years, isn't it about time he got a decent movie treatment?!
