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!

Animated Music Video For Pree's "Te Koop/A Vendre"


(YouTube Link)

This is one cool animated music video for Pree's song "Te Koop/A Vendre", and it's full of rich paper textures and a nature theme that finds the band playing with the birds in the trees. It's a visual delight, and the song ain't bad either!

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!

NC State Student Recruitment Film From The 1980s


(YouTube Link)

If you're looking for a good education, top ranking sports programs and a peer group striving for academic excellence then you should probably look into attending Duke, Wake Forest or the University of North Carolina.

But if you want to attend college for the booze, buds and sunbathing then you should check out North Carolina State!

I'm not sure whether this short film was made as a joke or a student's attempt to recruit more party people for their campus, but either way it's fun to watch and totally 80s!

Which Booth Would You Choose?



When faced with the decision of which booth to support, for charity of course, I think I'd have to go with the biting booth. I've heard the theories about a dog's mouth being cleaner than a human's, but the stench of liver flavored dog treats overrides any fear I have of germs!

Wagons And Okies And Zombies...Oh My!



I'm sure everyone has heard of, and played, one of the original hit computer games Oregon Trail.

But did you ever wish the game had more action, more suspense, and random encounters with zombies?

If you answered yes then your dreams have come true, thanks to game company The Men Who Wear Many Hats and their new game Organ Trail.

It's a lot like Oregon Trail, except you have to make difficult decisions like 'should I kill an infected party member?' and 'should I shoot the zombie and risk other zombies hearing the shot?'

It's perfect for those who like a lot of reading, and old timey graphics, with their video gaming experience.

Download And Play Chex Quest 1-3 For Free



Good news everyone! Another gaming relic from your childhood is available to play for free, thanks to those clever marketers who know that letting a game like Chex Quest make the rounds again gives you an opportunity to once again advertise your product.

The product in question is Chex cereal, and since it's not a detestable product I'm sure many who remember the silly advertising games from the 1990s will appreciate being able to play them all again, if only for the sake of nostalgia.

Accents Of The World With Dan Considine


(YouTube Link)

This googly eyed gentleman is named Dan Considine, and he'd like to take you on a tour of accents from across the globe, starting with the Land of Blarney and ending in the good ol' U.S. of A.

I see lots of voice over work in this guy's future, and he seems like he'd be a lot of fun at a party after he's feeling good from a few shots of rotgut, but a little bit of any one accent goes a long way. Don't overdo it Dan!

Is Star Wars Land Coming To Disneyland Paris?



Aside from being located in one of the most fabulous cities in the world, Disneyland Paris has a lot of other features which make a native Southern Californian like myself very jealous indeed-their Indiana Jones ride has a loop, an adult worthy rollercoaster based on Finding Nemo, and now the proposed addition of a Star Wars themed section of the park.

Star Wars Land is rumored to be coming to Disneyland Paris sometime in 2015, which means Disney's crew of Imagineers are probably hard at work designing and testing the features of this exciting new section of the park.

I hope they include lots of Wookiees and Ewoks, and leave the JarJars on the drawing board.

Trailer For Upcoming Sci Fi Movie- "Shuffle"


(YouTube Link)

This is a trailer for an upcoming sci-fi movie called Shuffle, and what the movie lacks in A-list talent and budget it more than makes up for in originality and compelling storyline.

With a mind-bending plot about a man who wakes up every morning at a different point in his own life, and the addition of a creepy little kid who speaks in a cryptic manner and seems to know what's going on, watching it promises to be a rollercoaster ride for your brain.

Dark And Creepy Digital Art By Adam Hosmer



There's s0mething unnerving about the understated horror lurking behind Adam Hosmer's digital artworks.

Perhaps it's the way these dark figures blend in with the photograph, or maybe it's the frayed and unraveling nature of his subjects. Either way, Adam's works give me the creeps!

Check out more of Adam's snapshots from the darkside at the links below, but only if you can handle seeing people fall apart right before your eyes.

This Guy Really Wants To Be In A Sci Fi Movie


(YouTube Link)

Jake Fleisher wants to throw his acting hat in the ring and land a role in a Hollywood movie, preferably a sci-fi flick that is worthy of his considerable thespian talents.

Watch him work his magic on this audition tape, which demonstrates why he shouldn't rule out acting in a direct-to-TV movie made for the Syfy channel. Perhaps Sharktopus 3 is holding auditions for a leading man?

DIY Star Trek Phaser Is Really Good At Popping Balloons


(YouTube Link)

Some crafty DIYer made this awesome Star Trek inspired phaser in his garage, or perhaps he attached a carefully tweaked laser pointer to a toy phaser.

Regardless of how it came into existence  it pops balloons without burning a hole in the wall, it's capable of causing massive eye damage and makes a really cool noise.

And I guarantee you'll be looking for this guy and his phaser thingy when the balloon armies begin taking over the Earth. Set phasers to pew-pew-pop!

Eggless Chicken Born In Sri Lanka



This little guy is too cool for a shell, and decided to skip all that egg nonsense and hatch the old fashioned way-inside his mother after a 21 day incubation period.

He didn't have to worry about becoming an omelette, or being used in a high school Biology class as baby training, and since his birth took his mother's life he's taken over the responsibility of lording over his siblings with an iron beak.

Look for him to become the ruler of all Sri Lankan chickens within the next year, and vote Stripey if you know what's good for you!

Descriptive Camera Turns Pictures Into Text



This camera doesn't want to simply duplicate whatever you see through the viewfinder, it would rather describe the whole scene to you via text.

Created by Matt Richardson to explore the possibility of adding metadata to digital photos, it requires a team to analyze each photo, who then sends the description back via text 3 to 6 minutes later.

It's safe to say that the descriptive camera won't be replacing traditional photographic equipment anytime soon, but it does have the distinction of being the strangest, and arguably the most useless, bit of tech I've seen in quite some time.

Hit the link if you want to find out more about the ideas behind this conceptual gadget, and how the whole process really works.

Cthulhu Pays A Visit To Countdown


(YouTube Link)

Popular British game show Countdown gets a whole lot more intense when the letters spell out the name of that most famous of Great Old Ones-Cthulhu!

This bloody animated short was made by Peephole Circus, and it's as square as they come. Don't watch if animated blood, and tentacles, make you squeamish.

Animated Music Video For The Shins "The Rifle's Spiral"


(YouTube Link)

This amazing new animated music video for The Shins song The Rifle's Spiral is full of stop motion goodness and a style inspired in part by the art of Edward Gorey.

It was created by Jamie Caliri, who is perhaps best known for the animated end title sequence he created for Lemony Snicket's film A Series Of Unfortunate Events.

It's a feast for the senses, with lots to look at and a song that really rocks!

Fun Animal Friendly Rocking Chair



This cleverly designed rocking chair has a space underneath the seat so your furry friend can stay close to you without cramping your style.

It was created by architect Paul Kweton, who is currently looking for a way to get his chair on the mass market.

The gentle rocking motion will either relax your pet, or freak them out and make them want to avoid the chair at all cost.

But if they're okay with the whole thing then chances are they're going to love sitting there, even when your not sitting in the chair.

Ukranian Man Had Compulsive Graffiti Syndrome



A Ukranian man named Mitasov lived here, a man who suffers from a hyper-obsessive personality disorder which causes him to compulsively cover every surface in his house with layers of  inscriptions.

He can't help but etch his bizarre graffiti into everything-the fridge, walls, piano, doors, even the ceilings are covered by Mitasov's strange inscriptions.

However, some of his inscriptions are not so strange, like his sadly inspiring street art that can still be seen in Ukraine-"Happiness! I'm waiting for you here!"

Skywalking Is Not As Fun As It Sounds


(YouTube Link)

Why does something called Skywalking have nothing to do with Luke or Leia, or Star Wars for that matter? Because it's dumb, that's why. Skywalking is not the same as Planking, so don't even go there kiddies.

But that doesn't stop "daredevils" from risking their lives for attention and internet acclaim by Skywalking from such great heights that I tremble at the thought of looking down from way up there.

Not that I have a phobia or anything, it just isn't natural for people to be up that high without a net or a parachute!
