    Captain Kirk: William Shatner/Chris Pine This is a series of old and new Star Trek character faces morphed together by deviantARTist ThatNordicGuy (no not the one swinging the battle axe -- the one hunched over his computer in the dark!). So, if you've ever dreamed of what it ... / Continue →

    This is an N-64 customized with a glowing TRON Legacy theme by pro-modder and DeviantARTist Zoki64. Damn that thing looks good. Plus it glows in the dark so you can still see where the system is to change games in case the power company gets pissy about a delinquent bill and ... / Continue →

    I apologize for the poor quality pictures but I didn't make them so it's really not my fault I'm just taking the blame because I have BROAD SHOULDERS and could carry the whole world on them provided it was the size and weight of a beach ball. This is a small series of five dif... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile larger shot HERE in case you want to burn your retinas out. This is a composite shot of our sun showing 365-days worth of solar storm activity. Can you imagine if all those storms had happened at once? I bet we'd lose cell phone coverage. OR WOULD WE ALL PE... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy shooting tracer bullets across the surface of a lake and watching them skip like stones. It's really pretty. So pretty I'm going to do it every night from now on instead of watching the sun set. You hear that, sun? You're old news! "Then maybe I... / Continue →
