    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 →

    In news that brings back terrifying memories of Large Marge, Pee-wee Herman's tricked-out bike from Pee-wee's Big Adventure is currently for sale on eBay. I am going to buy it. I am going to buy it, then fly it to the moon like in E.T. "They didn't actually fly TO the moon i... / Continue →

    This is the Little Tikes Coze Couple that was transformed into a mini Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Redditor tabres for his nephew (previously: this Ecto-1 pushcart). Lucky kid. When I was growing up my uncle didn't build me anything, he would just squeeze my leg right above the kne... / Continue →

    This is a t-shirt printed with Marty McFly's iconic look from Back to the Future (available on Amazon for ~$30). Which, for the record, is a maroon t-shirt, blue plaid button-up, bi-color jean jacket, and red vest. Marty was into LAYERING. Me? I'm into wearing as little as ... / Continue →

    Remember Brent Waller's (aka Orion Pax) insanely detailed Ghostbusters headquarters LEGO build? Well after consideration on their CUUSO website, LEGO has announced it's going to produce the Ecto-1 and minifigs from the set. But not the headquarters. Because that would be way... / Continue →

    These are a series of famous movie scenes recreated by 77 to 98-year old residents of the Contilia Retirement Home in Essen, Germany for their annual photo calendar. They really did a great job. The calendars were distributed to all the home's tenants, with an additional 5,0... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of pics from Cardboard Box Office, a photographic series by new parents Libby and Leon, who recreate scenes from classic movies with their son, Orson. In case you couldn't tell from the sweded quality, all the scenes were created using only objects they alrea... / Continue →

    Have a couple hundred thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket? I will follow you until it falls out your pant leg. Han Solo's iconic first-shooting DL-44 blaster is going up for auction. If its new owner doesn't superglue it to their hand they're wasting their money. ... / Continue →

    This is the opening scene to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' recreated as a 2-D LEGO stop motion by Anette Jung (previously: her Michael Jackson's 'Black or White' LEGO dance). I was really hoping to see the actual song and that zombie mob dance number, but that didn't happen. A... / Continue →

    Because some people still dare to dream, a group of Doctor Who fans have created a petition to have the Empire State Building be lit 'TARDIS blue' (technically just regular-blue) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series on November 23rd, when we'll all gather around our ... / Continue →

    These are the $35 Superman and Batman leg lamps available for pre-order from Entertainment Earth. They were loosely modeled after the leg lamp from A Christmas Story and both the lamp and leg light up (the leg is translucent and has its own bulb inside). Cool, but no Catwoman... / Continue →

    Remember the first level of Super Modern Mario Bros.? Probably only vaguely or not at all, which is why I just linked to it. And we're back with level 1-2, now with better graphics, sound effects, and EXPLOSIONS. And if there's one thing games need its better explosions. I ... / Continue →
