I love these silly little "sync a video of something moving to a popular song" videos, but I can't help but think that this little guy would look good getting down to any song with a beat. Remixers, do your thing!

If you feel like there's something missing from your dolly playtime, you're probably just wishing you had a Joss Whedon action figure to throw into the mix!
Complete with sensible shoes, ginger beard and hands capable of framing any scene faster than you can say action, the Joss Whedon action figure will transform any playset into a Hollywood movie set, The Avengers sold separately.

This simply adorable bunch of ghostly characters comes to you courtesy of graphic designer Ryan Coleman, who played Pac-Man for so long that he's started seeing things, like Bender's face on Blinky's body.
Someone should make an indie Pac-Man spin-off with these cute little guys, in order to literally feed the Pac-People's obsession with popular culture!

Think Disco or early Hip Hop DJs invented mixing and crossfading? I thought the same thing, until I read about this wondrous device.
It's called the Chronophone, and it was invented in 1910 by French engineer Leon Gaumant to sync sound and film when the length of one gramophone simply wasn't enough.
It's capable of crossfading and mixing via two platters, with the sound pumped out via "twin gramophones, driven from a common electric motor between them. An air hose goes to each valvebox from the control valve just under the air pressure gauge...this control valve allowed the operator to crossfade between the two gramophones."
I wonder what people would have thought about scratching records in 1910?

This impressive LEGO Superman mosaic was created by Dave Ware, a man who knows how to put different colored bricks together in ways which please the eyes and make the fanboys drool.
That wicked gleam in his eye means Supes is getting angry.... You won't like him when he's angry....

Watch him bust out a tune for your enjoyment on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, a song about LeBron James and basketball.
Singers are a dime a dozen, what the world needs now is another heavyweight head puncher turned comedian. Keep on punching out the funny Mike!

Argentinian toy makers have found a way to put an end to the rivalry between comic book publishers Marvel and DC - they the Thing and the Hulk join the Justice League!
And is that Spider Man wearing a suit of Waynetech body armor? Man, those poor kids in Argentina are going to be totally confused if they ever read the comics!
In what must be the most unlikely pairing ever, artiste extraordinaire Ron English and pop star/face puncher Chris Brown participated in a joint art show together entitled Dumb English and, to my surprise, Chris Brown's paintings aren't the worst thing I've ever seen scrawled on canvas.
Sure, his style is a bit contrived, and each piece looks like it took him about ten minutes to paint, but I expected far less from the singer so color me impressed!
I betcha Ron will look back upon this show with a smirk on his face and a stiff drink in hand, candy colored memories dancing in his head...
If you haven't seen Community then you're about to find out why Greendale Community College's oldest student is a real gas!
This Venom mural is one impressive act of comic book geekery, created by masters of spray can disaster Sekel and DarkElixir.
It's nice to see that big black ball of alien symbiote has finally been captured in a way which lives up to his villainous reputation! Hit the jump to see the entire mural, and check out the pipes coming out of the wall to put the massive scale of this piece in perspective.
Did you know that a new Superman movie is in the works? I did, and frankly I didn't care...until I saw these badass costumes!
Exploring the Man Of Steel's darker side is nothing new, and we all know about his Kryptonian origin story, but these suits look like they combine the two and finally present Superman as a mighty alien warrior, and not just some nerd in tights.
Hopefully Man Of Steel will give old Supes the proper reboot treatment he deserves, but even if the movie stinks the costumes look really cool!
There are many times in life when I find myself wishing for a comfortable place to sit, but who has the strength to lug an entire sofa around on their back?
Enter the Picnic Time Reflex Portable Reclining Travel Couch, a portable couch with a really long name that conveniently folds up into a bag like shape no bigger than your average laptop bag.
It makes sitting on your duff an outside sport, and looks way more comfortable than sitting on the ground. But where's the built-in drink holder?!

Help me bid bon voyage to Best Week Ever by watching a collection of internet videos which are sure to bring the funny for years to come. *tears*
Needless to say this has not been the best week ever for fans of Best Week Ever. Oh well, I guess I'll be spending more time on the dark side of the interwebs. *sadness*

Okay, maybe that's asking a bit much, but Paul was definitely on to something with his video review of the McDonald's breakfast platter, which he filmed waaaay back in 1984, and probably would have single-handedly invented YouTube if he knew how.
You may be asking yourself - who was Paul making his video review of McDonald's breakfast foods for? The world may never know...
This set piece is called the Lars Homestead, and Star Wars fans across the galaxy were shocked to hear that it had fallen into disrepair.
Out of nowhere, a band of geeks appeared, hell bent on saving it from certain doom, with the interwebs lending a monetary hand via the Save The Lars Homestead Campaign.
What will happen to this iconic set piece? Who donated money to help keep this structure looking good? And how do the residents of Tunisia feel about this geek preservation campaign?
Find out when the guys behind the project put out a book and DVD, with all the profits going to the preservation of the Homestead, right? *wink*
In this video, episode 12 of the horribly titled series American Hipster Presents, we get to hear from Philadelphia yarnaholic Ishknits, and find out why Yarn Bombing is the only street art unanimously approved by grandmothers across the globe!

Looking for a home theater experience that will make your guests go ape?

As I mentioned above, here's a GIF about Facebook stock prices plummeting, and the movie version of Zuckerberg isn't taking the news very well.
It took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride and wasted ten valuable seconds of my life that I'll probably miss when the Grim Reaper shows up pointing his bony finger at me. Yay for the goofy crap found on the interwebs!
If you like your comic strips darkly comedic with a dash of dystopia and a wickedly cool graphic style then you have to check out Alexiuss Vitaly's online series Romantically Apocalyptic.
It chronicles Zee Captain and his Second In Command as they make their way across the post apocalyptic ruins of a massive cityscape, looking for love and inspiration as to just what they're supposed to be doing.
So stay indoors this summer and let Zee Captain take your mind on a tour of humanity's hilariously bleak future. --thanks Travis!
Phlegm is hitting the U.K. streets with a fresh style straight from the olden days, a decidedly illustrative style inspired by woodblock printing and engraving.
His whimsical works add a sense of mystery and fairy tale charm to the cityscapes in which they reside, and it must be fun for urban explorers to come across one of Phlegm's pieces lurking under a bridge.

Russian mathematician Anatoly Fomenko creates illustrations which are both expressions of mathematical concepts and visual depictions of his innermost thoughts and emotions.
With razor sharp use of perspective, abstract imagery and many shades of gray, Anatoly's works are at once amazing and confounding, and would look right at home on the cover of a Pink Floyd album.
You can take your eyes on a long, strange trip through Anatoly's works at the Juxtapoz link below, and try not to get lost in there!

This is what happens when parents refuse to let their children keep their precious Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, or when an undying obsession becomes an (arguably) bad decision.
I'm assuming that his name is Ozzy, which is why this is his favorite GPK card, and this guy seems like such a superfan that he probably has a copy of the 1987 Garbage Pail Kids
I used to have that card, I traded it for Loogie Leia!
It's an homage to old school, quarter plunking arcade gaming called Wreck-It Ralph, and it stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jack McBrayer, to name a few stars from this amazing cast.
Fans of funny are sure to find a chuckle, and I'm sure it will inspire a new generation of classic video game enthusiasts to pick up their control pad and get those pixels moving!

These scientific illustrations look like they were made by a machine, and in a way they are machine made. However, the machine in this case is an amazing human artist by the name of Peter Jellitsch.
These hand drawn pieces reveal Peter's mind at work, creating what he calls an "analog translation of digital data", but I prefer to think of them as the blankets that science built.

Ryan Roberts likes to set up humorous situations with toys then shoots a bunch of pics of the scene, like a guy who wasn't allowed to play with toys looking to exact revenge via photographic playtime.
His series is like the photo version of the stop motion TV series Robot Chicken, and is sure to appeal to the young and the young at heart.

Evgeny Yakovlev is an illustrator from Karaganda, Kazahkstan who specializes in ridiculous acts of geek mashupery.
That's clearly not a real word, but sometimes it takes a little creative vocabulary to describe geek art this awesome.
Take a gander at Boba Fett collecting a bounty on the nefarious Road Runner, Edward Scissorhands discussing family with Wolverine, and twelve more epic works of geekus maximus mashupalus.
Okay, I've clearly taken this stupid word creation thing a bit too far!

With some extremely lackluster special effects and a drawing style that would make a five year old feel better about their own scribbles, this is the least spectacular trailer for Prometheus that you'll ever see!

Photographer and beverage enthusiast William LeGoullon decided to explore his love of the liquids on a microscopic level, and these fascinating photos of your favorite beverages are the result.
Pictured above is the beautiful, leaf-like structure of beer, and William's series includes the other four most consumed beverages- tea, coffee, wine and cola.
It's like a tour of the wet stuff from an ant's perspective, and the differences in texture are compelling, but don't take my word for it-hit the jump and see what you've been sipping on!
