The 2011 holiday season is obviously over, and I'm sure most of you have already put away your decorations and chucked out your tree, ready to start a new year full of whatever 2012 has in store. But wait, there's one more present waiting for you under the tree on the interwebs, and it's called Mega Man's Christmas Carol Part 2!

Brought to you by the good people at Sprites Inc., this fun retro styled game casts Doctor Wily as a Scroogey sort of fellow hell bent on ruining Christmas for Mega Man and his posse. And the best part is- you can download it for FREE!

So sit back, stretch your fingers, and bring that holiday cheer back one last time!

Aerodyne Art Deco Inspired Computer Case Mod



If you thought only Steampunk enthusiasts used wood in their creations guess again, and if you're a woodworker/DIYer like myself, here's the inspiration for your next project!

This gorgeous wooden modded computer tower case by Jeffrey Stephenson looks like tech from the Mad Men era, something they probably would have mistaken for an intercom or radio in the 1960s.

This case mod makes my boring old metal case look like crap, and is guaranteed to make all other computers in your house jealous of it's retro charm and sophisticated cool.

Yoda And Darth Maul Battle It Out For Lipton Brisk


(YouTube Link)

Continuing the parade of "dear god, make it stop!" inducing advertising for The Phantom Menace in 3D, a new animated commercial has emerged for Lipton Brisk Iced Tea that, I must admit, is beautifully animated and very cute.

There's even a mobile app centered around the battle between Yoda and Darth Maul, which you can check out here.  Now, why do I have the feeling that these ads are going to look a whole lot better than a 3d converted version of The Phantom Menace?

Goofy Facebook Shower Curtain



This Facebook themed shower curtain isn't creepy because of the graphics or text printed on it, but rather because it assumes you'll have people spying on you while you take a shower!

And, while it may be meant for couples or roommates comfortable with sharing their shower time with others, I'm sure even in those situations it would get old quickly, prompting them to wonder "where did you put the plain old shower curtain I used to know and love?"

The Most Comical Star Trek Parody I've Ever Seen


(YouTube Link)

 This ridiculous parody comes to us courtesy of Turkish YouTubers dokuztaneprogramla, who appear to have a knack for making cheese, and mistranslating Turkish into English. At least I hope some of those subtitles were mistranslated, or else these guys are even crazier than I thought!

Watch as Captain Hooey and his intrepid band of schmucks come face to face with the gigantic Spacekisser, who appears to have a bad case of herpes, and yet still wants to make out with the Captain. It's like the swinging 60s all over again!

Let's Play Ancient Greek Punishment



Ever wondered what it would have been like to endure a raven pecking out your liver, or pushing a rock up a hill and never reaching the top, like a punishment fit for a Greek from the age of myth?

Well, here's your chance to get in on the fun, with these simple, cleverly designed pixel art video games by artist Pippin Barr. Choose from: Sisyphus, Tantalus, Prometheus, Danaids or Zeno, and prepare to be entertained for a few moments by the sheer hilarity of it all.

The games look like they're straight from the Atari 2600, full of charm, strange shaped figures and jagged edges, and believe you me pushing two buttons over and over again can be quite exhausting!

You Can Really Taste The Dark Side In This Vader Burger



In what is sure to be the wackiest food marketing campaign yet, the French fast food chain Quick have released their Force burgers, to promote the release of The Phantom Menace in 3d.

This bold, and absolutely disgusting looking, burger features a bun that is dyed black, ensuring that only a true Sith Lord will want to have anything to do with it!

What do you think-would you eat a burger with a black bun, or is the color enough to put you off the Vader deluxe?

Coast Guard Discovers Body, Which Turns Out To Be E.T.



The Coast Guard received a distress call about a body spotted floating off the coast of Old Portsmouth, Hants, and when they arrived they found that it was a creature from another planet!

What they had actually discovered was a life-sized replica of everybody's favorite turtle-esque alien E.T., which had been stolen from the home of Margaret Wells over a year ago.

The replica was custom made by Margaret's daughter, and what the person who stole E.T. intended to do with him is anybody's guess. But since he washed up on the shore we can only assume that he owed money to some very bad people. Margaret's response:

“He has lost a finger and looks a bit roughed up. But he has a smile on his face,” she said. “I always knew E.T. would come home.”

The Retro Video Game That Starred Mikhail Gorbachev


(YouTube Link)

I think the Cold War may have kept this game from arriving in America, either that or the manufacturer didn't feel like the reference to Mikhail Gorbachev would help sell copies in the U.S.

Whatever the reason, Gorby's Pipeline never made its way to the Nintendo Entertainment System, and that's too bad because it looks like it would have given Tetris and Dr. Mario a run for their money! Anyone remember the old school video game Pipe Dream?

Custom Made Portal Heel Springs



These custom made heel springs, like the ones worn by the protagonist Chell in the Portal video game franchise, don't seem like a very useful creation in real life, but who needs function when the form is so cool, and they're an integral part of a wicked Chell costume? Scifi femme fatale prisoner cosplay FTW!

If only they actually allowed you to survive a long fall, like they do in the game, the creator Harrison Krix would become a very rich man indeed!

Strangers Have A Jam Session On The Subway


(YouTube Link)

New York is the kind of place where anything can happen at any moment, and although that comes with plenty of bad, this video shows that there are also many instances of spontaneous goodness going down, even on public transit.

These strangers on a train, who both happen to have their instruments with them, break out in a soulful song,  much to the delight of their fellow riders.

Whether this chance meeting was truly by chance or not ceases to be an issue once you watch them play, and feel that energy that seems to be in the air that New Yorkers breathe.

Lion King Meets The Dark Knight Rises Trailer


(YouTube Link)

Anticipation for the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises has spawned so many parodies and mashups that it seems like a new one is springing up every week. This one's all about the Lion King, though, and that makes it stand out from the rest in my opinion.

Watch as Simba's fate takes a turn for the worse, and laugh as voices from the movie trailer are cleverly synced to the mouth shapes of animated animals!

Hyperion Battlecruiser From Starcraft 2 Built Out Of LEGO



This amazing LEGO sculpture of a Hyperion Battlecruiser from the video game Starcraft 2 was made by Sven Jungo, who used over 15000 LEGO bricks to build the highly detailed starship and must throw his back out every time he tries to move this thing!

And where does he display this behemoth in his house? I hope Sven doesn't let any bratty little kids around this thing, because they might try to take it apart when no one's looking.

You can see more pics of this incredible LEGO masterpiece at the link below, including artwork from the game as a point of reference. LEGO builders-Sven has already set the bar high for 2012!

11 New Animal Species Discovered In 2011



When it comes to "discovering" new species of animals, I think it's more about having found where they've been hiding themselves from humanity and less about discovering brand new species.

I mean, most of the animals in this gallery look like the result of genetic evolution and adaptation, not some brand spanking new little critter.

But they are cute, and great fun to read about, considering that they're so rare to see in nature. So take a look at this gallery and see what the animal guides were missing up until last year.

Beautiful Skyrim Cover Performed On Violin


(YouTube Link)

The soundtrack music for the video game Skyrim is quite beautiful already, but when Jason Yang and his violin play the songs they become a thing of ethereal beauty.

We've been seeing a lot of this type of video game and orchestral/classical music crossover (Final Fantasy orchestra, Legend of Zelda orchestra, etc.), and I'm sure that game soundtracks will continue to inspire musicians of all kinds to perform their own interpretations of these songs.

Raiders Of The Lost Archives-A Comparison


(YouTube Link)

This eye opening, and beautifully edited, video shows a shot-by-shot comparison of Raiders of the Lost Ark and 31 other films made between 1919 and 1973.

To say that there are a few similarities would be an understatement, so obviously this is due to Spielberg doing his homework, right? *wink*

If you've seen this before, good for you! Enjoy it again, why don't you?

Over 300 Pounds Of Caviar Found In Russian Morgue

Russian authorities made a fishy discovery this week, when a whopping 385 pounds of caviar was found stashed in a hospital morgue refrigerator.

The employees who were arrested for stashing the stuff claim that it was being reserved for a staff New Years party. Here's why the St. Petersburg police were after the caviar:

Most of the red caviar was from salmon, but 38 kilograms (84 pounds) of the stash was black caviar from sturgeon, an endangered fish. Amid heavy restrictions on sturgeon fishing, black caviar is increasingly produced and sold illegally.



A day after the morgue discovery, St. Petersburg police said they seized an additional 100 kilograms (220 pounds) intended for illegal sale at local markets.

On Friday, the Interfax news agency reported that border guards in the eastern Ukraine city of Kharkiv confiscated 249 cans of caviar worth almost $22,000 that was allegedly being smuggled from Russia to Ukraine.



In the far eastern region of Khabarovsk, a vehicle inspection turned up 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) of caviar, leading police on a weeklong investigation, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported. They raided a village home on Friday and found another 26 kilograms (57 pounds).


At two different spots along the Amur River basin, police found 47 sturgeon carcasses and 2.5 tons of live sturgeon. Sturgeon fishing in the Amur basin is prohibited.

Apparently, the war on drugs in Russia includes battling the sale of illegal caviar. I wonder if they have dogs trained to sniff out the fishy stuff?

SwapNote Is Turned Into An Old School RPG


(YouTube Link)

One of the great things about this hi-tech world we live in is the fact that most software applications have a multitude of other uses that have yet to be discovered, and even the programmers that created the software don't know the full extent of what their software can do.

Case in point-this mod of SwapNote, a Nintendo 3DS chatting program that was modded by game design student Ben Gray and turned into a fully customizable text based roleplaying game.

Ben's hacked version is so cool that each session can be custom created, and Ben even created a Dungeon Master template, to help with encounters and map creation. Dungeons and Dragons for the portable gaming crowd, now that's an innovation I can get behind!

A Gravity Defying Series Of Photographs



It's hard to make heads or tails of these photos, because photographer Philippe Ramette has manipulated them to create an uneasy sense of gravity defiance.

They provoke a feeling of vertigo in some viewers, and your mind will race to separate the elements of the photo and make sense of which way is up.

I really enjoy the clever way in which the people are worked into each scene, and how they often seem to be hanging out on the edge of nowhere.

Want A New Tattoo? Let These 8 Year Old Twins Ink You Up!


(YouTube Link)

When the proud father of 8 year old twins Eloy and Oraibi wanted a new tattoo, he didn't get all liquored up and head to a parlor down by the docks. Instead, he let his kids take a crack at inking up their old man, and from the looks of it they had a blast!

Isaiah Toothtaker has been a professional tattoo artist for around 10 years, and he's apparently decided to pass the tradition on to his little ones.

The results, as expected, are a bit shaky and very painful. I just hope his kids don't take to covering themselves up with ink at such an early age.

(NSFW for one moment, when Isaiah curses due to the pain).

World Of Warcraft Parody Of Katy Perry Song

11 Things We Can Expect In The Future According To Buck Rogers



Man, I used to love me some Buck Rogers In The 25th Century when I was a kid, and not just because I had a serious crush on co-star Erin Gray! The sci-fi was just far out enough to hold your attention without making you learn an encyclopaedic amount of factoids, and the fashion was dy-no-mite!

All kidding aside, as a kid growing up in the 80s Buck Rogers and Battlestar Galactica fed my geeky addiction to sci-fi like no other show could, and kept me firmly planted in front of the television, my mind racing at the possibilities presented in each episode.

Head to the link to find a bunch of sci-fi elements Buck Rogers predicted would become a part of mankind's future. They're hilarious and mostly outdated, although if any of them do come true the future will be a scary place indeed!

Want To Know More About North Korea? Then Read The FAQ Page



In an effort to pull the old "I'm not up to no good! See, I can prove it!" routine, North Korea has released a FAQ page to answer all your questions about the dark and mysterious country, and alleviate any global concerns at the same time.

This fun, informative and easy to read page includes the following hits:
24. Is it true that all citizens of the DPRK work for the government?

Government and people are one. There is no distinction of them.

8. Can I travel to North Korea as a backpacker?

No. You must travel as a group only, even if you are the only participant you must be with Korean guides at all times.


...and many more hilarious answers to seemingly simple questions. Will it make you trust North Korea more?

Probably not, but you're guaranteed to enjoy the circular logic and evasive answers, all while cracking up at the very thought of a country like North Korea having a FAQ page!

A Fun New Years Eve Tradition From Ecuador



These images aren't of pop culture statues being erected to spruce up city street corners in Ecuador, they're giant effigies known as "años viejos", many of which feature fan fav characters, that are burned to celebrate the coming of the new year.

Ricardo Bohorquez has taken some amazing pics of the effigies being built, many with people in the frame to show their massive scale, and I only wish there was a part 2 to this article showing them all going up in flames!
