    Ever wanted to see a cockatiel whistling the theme to Hayao Miyazaki's animated classic 'My Neighbor Totoro' with a little musical accompaniment by its caretaker? Well you're in luck. Man, if I had that bird I would have him singing that song all day long, and my life would be... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy cosplaying as the QWOP runner (links to game) at Anime North 2013. I'm pretty sure it's the same guy who cosplayed as the QWOP runner at Anime North 2012, but with AN IMPROVED ROUTINE. That's serious commitment to the character. He took a year, pract... / Continue →

    Note: Alphabet does contain some spoilers if you've never read the books or seen the movies or ever left the cave you've lived in for the last 15 years. This is the alphabet of Harry Potter characters created by superfan Kayla Pyke. Not all of them though, only six. The whol... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jake explaining what would happen if Superman punched you in real life. SURPRISE: basically you'd be torn apart at the molecular level in a nuclear explosion. Unless he made the mistake of punching me, in which case he'd break every bone in his hand. "Oh r... / Continue →

    Remember that video from PistolShrimps of Batman replacing characters in other famous movie scenes? Well this is part two. Unfortunately, like so many other sequels, it isn't as good as the first one. It's still worth a watch though, especially since it's Friday afternoon an... / Continue →

    FULL DISCLOSURE: I've never actually seen 'How to Train Your Dragon' because any wizard worth his pointy moon and stars hat already knows how to. Now before you start getting all bent out of shape about how anybody could do this to their dog, that's not a dog, it's a person. ... / Continue →

    This is the LEGO Normandy SR2 built by Mass Effect fan Ben Caulkins over the last seven months. I, for one, would be honored to serve aboard that ship. Of course, I'd be honored to serve aboard any ship at this point because the Intergalactic Space Ranger Federation has alrea... / Continue →

    This is a video of professional rock climber Cedar Wright performing a 600-foot rope drop/swing in Ukraine. It's crazy how extreme people have to go these days to get a rush. I still get all sweaty and excited using a crosswalk that's already flashing orange. Hit the jump fo... / Continue →

    March 13, 2013?! That vagina bread is BAD. Note: Possibly NSFW unbagged shots HERE and HERE. This is Japanese 'cherry blossom bread'. It's endorsed by virtual pop star Hatsune Miku and UNINTENTIONALLY looks like a ring of lady privates. Or at least that's what I was told, ... / Continue →

    This is the chart comparing the next generation Microsoft and Sony gaming consoles compiled by DeviantARTist yamamoto114. Which one are you gonna get? I'm gonna get one of each and then film myself smashing them on release day in front of all the people who camped out. Just ... / Continue →

    This is Stan Lee's signature cologne from JADS International (of Avengers cologne infamy). Unfortunately, it doesn't actually smell like Stan Lee, which is a shame because I hugged him at a convention once and I feel like his natural pheromones made me manlier for the rest of ... / Continue →

    This is the 1953 Volkswagen Beetle exterior that was crumpled into a sphere by Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor. I think we can all agree it makes a powerful statement about how fun it would be to push that thing down a hill. He got his idea of this piece from his personal per... / Continue →

    This is the custom floor painting job performed by Graffiti Decoration as an art installation in someone's house. It makes it look like the floor is falling away and there's nothing but outerspace beneath you. Which is weird because I have dreams like that sometimes. AND GUE... / Continue →

    This is a short video of PopCap announcing a new Peggle game at E3, and, despite the announcer's solid jumping ground punch, the audience doesn't care. I think I heard one clap. Me? I would have been swinging my shirt around over my head and screaming till I passed out, like... / Continue →

    Sometimes life hands you lemons, and you can make lemonade. But other times life puts a pillowcase over your head and pummels you with cantaloupes. I hate cantaloupe. Or is it honeydew? My point is the bruises are healing and I'll be back to embarrassing myself later today ... / Continue →

  • If you will, imagine for a moment that in the early '90s, when even Shaq got a 2D fighting game, Keanu Reeves was made the final boss of a Mortal Kombat rip-off. And imagine it somehow got so popular that, twenty years later, Reeves himself would direct and star in an adaptatio... / Continue →
  • The 48fps camera of time has spiraled its way around a too-picturesque mountain pass once again, bringing with it a new marketing season for Peter Jackson's never-ending Tolkien films. As such, here's the first trailer for The Desolation of Smaug, with its many CGI creatures, w... / Continue →
