    This is a video of Lottie the African Grey impersonating Sean Connery's version of James Bond. Plus whistles a little bit of the James Bond theme. Then sort of clicks and squeaks and coos and whatever the hell else because it's a bird and birds make weird noises. I have a fr... / Continue →

    This is the sheet music created by Evan Kent to replicate Jeff Goldblum's laugh from Jurassic Park. That laugh, my God. I can't help but feel tingly all over -- like angels are tickling my scalp. *closes eyes, fantasizing* Ooooh, now it's like a velociraptor giving me a han... / Continue →

    This is an infographic about fictional computers in television, movies and video games. Of course using the term infographic is a little excessive, because it only features the name of the computer, where it's from, whether it's good or bad, and a quote. I would argue it's mo... / Continue →

    This is a series of DC Comics characters in the style of Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post covers as imagined by DeviantARTist OnlyMilo (aka Ruiz Burgos). He did a fantastic job. You know, I actually have an old Saturday Evening Post and often daydream about living in the... / Continue →

    To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film, Krispy Kreme and Sony Pictures have teamed up to release two Ghostbusters inspired donuts. Unfortunately, they're both marshmallow creme filled, because God forbid they make a Hi-C Ecto-Cooler jelly filled one and make all my wild... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Davie504 performing the iconic bass lines of 100 different songs. There were some I felt shouldn't have made the list, and others that were absent that I feel should have been included, but whatever -- everybody has different musical taste. Somethi... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Darth Vader's iconic 'I am your father' line in twenty different languages. I believe they're all the actual voice-overs from the international releases. Not to brag or anything, but I just listened to it all twice and now I'm fluent in all twenty lan... / Continue →

    These are a couple shots of early E.T. concept art by special effects artist Rick Baker. As you can see, they clearly made the right decision making E.T. look like he does and not one of these burn-with-fire monsters. "E.T. phone home?" Sorry pal, but not before I phone a fr... / Continue →

    This is the $59 Monkey Brain Bowl available from Firebox that was inspired by the feast scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (previously: this cake). Wait -- $59?! That's a little expensive for something that isn't microwave or dishwasher safe, doesn't look particu... / Continue →

    This is a series of upcoming Finish postage stamps featuring the iconic homoerotic art of Tom of Finland (aka Touko Laaksonen). I'm really digging that one face and butt design. That guy's all, "Peekaboo, I see you! Like my mustache?" I would love to get a piece of mail wit... / Continue →

    This is 'The Dark Side Of The Covers', a series by Flickr user Harvezt imagining what the opposite side of an album cover might look like. Sort of like, a shot taken from the OTHER SIDE of the subject. Does that make sense? I suck at explaining things. Just go look at all t... / Continue →

    This is a series of iconic (some less than others) album covers superimposed over the actual locations they were shot at in Google Street View. I have not visited any of those places. Of course, I'm still saving up for my album cover tour of the world. So far I've got a gran... / Continue →

    This is 'If They Could Transform', a series of digital paintings by artist Darren Rawlings imagining famous pop culture vehicles as Transformers. Which one is your favorite? I liked them all equally. Except for the Ninja Turtle's Party Wagon, ECTO-1, KITT from Knight Rider, ... / Continue →

    So they're remaking the arcade classic Gauntlet. This is one of the very few reboots I don't actually have a problem with. That is a RARITY. Like finding a diamond at the beach. Obviously, since I have the most experience with spells I will be playing as the wizard. The ga... / Continue →
