Trailer For Dragon Age The Animated Series


(YouTube Link)

The video game series Dragon Age is dark fantasy at it's finest, full of murder, intrigue, magic and, of course, dragons.

This clip from the upcoming Dragon Age animated series by Funimation looks pretty cool, but I don't know how I feel about the cheesy spell casting sound effects, or how easy they make it look to defeat a dragon.

But if it stays dark, bloody and full of action then I'm on board.

Featured Designs from the NeatoShop:



The Birth Of Black Widow



The Avengers are such an iconic team of superheroes that it seems fitting for them to be celebrated by working them into an iconic painting.

Argentinian artist Julian Totino Tedesco shows his love for the classics and comic books with his piece The Birth Of Black Widow, which is based on Botticelli's masterpiece The Birth Of Venus and was used as the alternate cover art for Fantastic Four #17.

Venus is cool and all, but Black Widow has a much higher body count, and a skin tight black suit to match.

Sea Creature Shaped Pancake Art



These sea creature shaped pancakes put the mmm in nom nom nom, and they're so cool looking it's a shame somebody gobbled them all up!

They are featured by N. Shields on the art of breakfast foods site Saipancakes, where you can drool over many more works of pancake art, including a fun series based on mythological beasts.

Paper Tornadoes By Mia Pearlman



Artist Mia Pearlman creates some unique and interesting installations in the form of swirling paper tornadoes, which look far less dangerous than the real thing yet are far more likely to paper cut you to smithereens.

Capturing the feeling of turbulent motion and the random shapes found in a funnel cloud, Mia's massive cut paper artworks fill the room with a sense of wonder and probably look really neat when a light breeze sweeps through.

Kids Singing About Death = Creepy


(YouTube Link)

This music video by Peter Alsop is supposedly meant to teach children about death, but I think it's actually just a cheap way to scare the living hell out of people searching the interwebs for cute kid vids.

And the way Peter inserts himself into the video doesn't help reduce the creepy factor. My favorite line-"will my foot hurt when I kick the bucket?"

Superhero Themed Mother's Day Cards



Show Mom your nerdy side by sending her one of these comic book inspired Mother's Day cards, she might not get the reference but I'm sure she'll appreciate the gesture!

Some of these cards are a bit maudlin, but considering that a parent's death is often what spurs a hero into action their darkly comedic tone makes perfect sense.

So, show your mother what a geeky sense of humor you have with these silly superhero cards, but avoid the ones that refer to her as "crappy" or "in Hell" unless she has an amazing sense of humor!

The Most Difficult Way To Mix A Cocktail


(YouTube Link)

Artist, avid DIYer and alcoholic beverage connoisseur Benjamin Cowden drew inspiration from a turn-of-the-century device called the Imperial Shaker when he created this kooky, cocktail shaking contraption.

He calls it the Post Imperial Shaker, and it's the most difficult way to serve up a martini, James Bond style-shaken, not stirred.

In fact, it kind of looks like something a mad villain would build in order to lure 007 into his lair, then WHAMMO! Cue the sharks armed with lasers!

Marvel At Superhero Styles From Australian Fashion Week



Fashion design company Romance Was Born unveiled their new line during Australian Fashion Week, and it's a truly heroic effort!

Wearing their love of comic books on their sleeves, RWB's super powered line actually looks pretty cool, aside from a few ridiculous pieces (see:shirt dress with drawn on pecs and six pack abs).

It appears that they've chosen to refrain from designing fantastically inspired yet unwearable clothing, and have instead created styles that even people who don't care about comic books can get into.

Amazing Trio Perform Songs From Super Mario Bros. 3


(YouTube Link)

These three gentlemen perform a medley of songs from the Super Mario Bros. 3 soundtrack in style, and the addition of a standup bass is a nice touch.

Of course it never hurts to have players in your trio that are extremely talented and willing to wear paper costume accessories in the name of showmanship. This song makes me want to jump for joy!

Pikachu Enhanced By The Power Of Gundam



How do you make a tough little critter like Pikachu even tougher? Add Gundam technology and watch him soar!

This mecha enhanced version of the pint sized furry lightning generator is probably illegal to use in most battle arenas, but when Team Rocket comes to town you'll be glad Gundamchu is on your side.

Portraits Of 38 Badasses Drawn On Whiteboard Shirt


(YouTube Link)

Okay, I have to get my hands on one of these awesome whiteboard shirts! However, I'm guessing it's pretty hard to draw upside down, at least until your brain gets used to it.

Become a master like Phil Hansen, who quickly sketches 38 different portraits of cinematic badasses on his shirt, and you too can have the fame and critical acclaim afforded to those who keep the interwebs entertained. Yay for creativity!

Devilishly Cool Diablo III Animated Short


(YouTube Link)

This here's a brand spanking new animated short based on Blizzard's upcoming video game Diablo III, and it's directed by Peter Chung (of Aeon Flux fame) and animated by Titmouse (of Metalocalypse and Venture Bros. fame)!!

It's a bloody, action packed short that left me longing to watch a Diablo animated series. Oh well, I guess I'll have to settle for some epic gaming sessions when the game is released next week.

A Rainbow Made Out Of Toy Cars



This vibrant rainbow circle was created by artist David Waller, who rounded up 6,000 toy cars he's collected since childhood and arranged them into rings of color, reminiscent of an OCD sufferer's childhood memory.

Hit the jump to see a fun close-up shot that looks like a traffic jam in Toyland, and a contrasting shot of the cars lined up in no particular order of color. *gasp*

DIY Gramophone Made Of Paper And Plywood



Jon Holmgeirsson from the Iceland Academy Of The Arts created this nifty little paper and plywood gramophone, which brings that raw sound back to your vinyl collection.

Powered by plugging it in to a wall outlet, or via 9 volt battery when you're on the go, this clever contraption takes about an hour to put together, but the warmth and antiquated feel of the natural materials will last a lifetime.

Jon plans on releasing his paper gramophone to the public in the near future, so I've added it to my NEED list and I'm waiting patiently to get my hands on one and become the envy of my fellow vinylphiles.

Terrifying Bento Boxes Too Creepy To Eat



Don't you hate it when you lose your appetite because your lunch looks like it wants to eat you?!

It takes a lot of guts to chow down on these horrifying bento boxes, and having an affinity for food shaped like internal organs doesn't hurt.

I wonder what they used to make that nasty looking tongue?

Company Offers Pet Mummification Service



Salt Lake City is known for many things-a deep connection to Mormonism, the 2002 Winter Olympics, their NBA team the Utah Jazz, and now as the home of pet mummification company Summum.

Summum offers a unique service to grieving pet owners-mummification of your dead pet via traditional methods, so you can bring home a bit of ancient Egypt without having to walk funny or learn how to read hieroglyphics.

It costs tens of thousands of dollars (from $6k to $128k according to the website) and takes four to six months to complete the process, but isn't it worth all that to know that your beloved pet's corpse is now permanently encased in a nifty looking statue?

Seattle's Real Life Super Villain Rex Velvet


(YouTube Link)

Rex Velvet, the self proclaimed "people's villain", is coming to take Seattle by storm, hoping to single-handedly abolish the Rain City Superhero Movement and force Phoenix Jones into retirement.

He's part vaudeville showman, part sicko, and his introduction video reveals that this dapper man with a dark plan will surely make his mark on the city of Seattle.

But will Phoenix Jones get around to meeting this shadowy character before the police bring the whole superhero scene to a grinding halt?

Princess Peach Cleans Up The Mushroom Kingdom


(YouTube Link)

Princess Peach stopped smelling the roses long enough to institute sweeping reforms throughout the  Mushroom Kingdom, which have been set to music and accompanied by animation that looks like it was drawn by a nervous Koopa.

It's more fun than having a plumber jump on your head, and it's so cute and catchy that the tune will lurk around inside your head like a Shy Guy stalking around Bowser's castle!

Real Life Anime Portraits Are Really Creepy



Anime girls may look cute in the cartoons, with their big, bright eyes and pinched features, but translating them to real life makes them just plain creepy.

If you see a girl that looks like this coming your way, eyes wide open and mouth agape, you'd better make a break for it because she may be after your soul!

Photographer Chris Scarborough apparently likes the look of the anime ladies, so he's created an entire series of manipulated photos showing what they might look like in real life. All I can say about this series is AAAAGGGGHHHH!!

Awesome Star Fox Intro Redux


(YouTube Link)

If you think of yourself as a serious gamer, yet you've never played the 1993 Super Nintendo classic Star Fox then you owe it to yourself to hunt down the emulator ROM and give it a whirl because it is an awesome gaming experience.

Youtuber Rickonami is obviously a fan of Star Fox, since he an a few friends created this shiny new intro sequence as a tribute to the game's greatness, complete with updated 3d models and visual effects.

Dogs That Resemble The Cast Of The Avengers



With Avengers fever sweeping through movie theaters across the globe, it's time for yet another Avengers related post-now with cute side-by-side comparisons!

Here are eight dogs that resemble the cast of The Avengers and they're pretty much spot on, especially the cocker spaniel-Scarlett Johansson resemblance. Is there a sequel with an all canine cast in the works?

Bizarre Street Art Promotion For Goodwill



These spooky figures, holding a note with their faces obscured, are part of a strange street art advertising campaign by Red Agency for Goodwill stores, to illustrate that Goodwill is the best place to buy costumes.

The slogan is "Be Anything This Halloween", but I don't think I'll be going to this year's Halloween bash dressed as a dumpster.

Still, as far as advertising campaigns are concerned, this is a rather creative and surreal campaign, and it would be fun to spot these odd stickers all over town.

This Candy Bicycle Looks Like A Sweet Ride



This candy covered Huffy bike by Britta Hope looks like a dream come true for a sugarholic like me!

It's a good thing there's a real bike under all that candy, because I'd probably end up eating an entire wheel, or taking a big old bite out of the frame and then I'd end up without a set of wheels.

Britta clearly understands the needs of those of us with an insatiable appetite for sweets, since she intended the bike to be a cupcake delivery vehicle. Why don't we have those in real life?!

Nickelodeon Characters Dressed As The Avengers



Your favorite Nickelodeon characters get serious as they don the battle gear worn by Earth's mightiest heroes, The Avengers!

I guess Dennis Culver, the artist behind this wacky animation mashup, is as excited about The Avengers movie as the rest of the interwebs. And his SpongeThor SquareGirdle really put a smile on my face.

Nicktoons pretending to be Marvel superheroes would be awesome to see in an animated form, too bad the legal conflicts between the two entertainment juggernauts would prevent this fun mashup from ever being made. A geek can dream, can't he?!

Monsters Of Rock By Jason Edmiston



Jason Edmiston confirms what I've always suspected-some of the biggest legends in rock and roll history are actually monsters in disguise!

Watch them shred, claw and roar their way into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, one twisted chord at a time.

I'm surprised Keith Richards isn't featured among this motley crew, because there has to be monster blood pumping through his veins for him to have lived this long!

Awesome Iron Man Stained Glass Lamp



Referring to Tony Stark as "bright" is an understatement, but this stained glass lampshade, made by DeviantARTist mclanesmemories and shaped like Iron Man's helmet, is certainly a bright idea in home decor!

The geometric stained glass look is pretty square, representing Tony's scientific side, while the vibrant colors reveal the billionaire playboy beneath the armor. This is quite possibly the classiest piece of Iron Man themed art work ever made!

Concept Art From Sci Fi Film John Carter



The movie adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' seminal science fiction novel A Princess of Mars may have been a commercial failure, but the visual effects, and the concept art behind the visuals, represent the highest level of industry excellence.

Artist Michael Kutsche has kindly shared some of the character and creature designs he created for John Carter with the interwebs, and it should be put together in a book with the rest of the concept art for the movie right away!
