Just imagine if this was how soccer was played all the time, it would make it so much more awesome. When someone scored a goal, the celebration wouldn’t just involved them sliding along the pitch on their knees and screaming. But it would involve them sliding along the pitch on their knees and screaming while colored lasers shot out of their eyes and fire trailed behind them. Somebody make this happen NOW!
You probably don’t need it put into perspective how annoying Facebook’s constant updating of their privacy settings and template changes are. Suddenly everyone and their mothers can now see your updates and your activities–and companies can see them too so they can effectively market you, while all your favourite bits are reduced in size and repositioned. But if Facebook did exist in some kind of augmented reality world, this is how aggravating it would be. Grrrrrr!
Although the title says Lego Casino Royale, that is a bit misleading. Because it’s not the entire film put in Lego, instead it’s the black and white opening scene where Bond has a confrontation in the men’s toilets, but it’s all here, every frame painstakingly recreated for all the Lego enthusiasts and nerdlings out there. And it’s epic.
In case you spent April living in a cave with no broadband, not even dial-up, here’s a compilation of some of the best clips that the internet had to offer. You could basically spend your time outside running in fields and watching sunsets instead of sat glued to your screen and just watch this to catch up on what you missed. But that would just be weird, right?
The new Star Trek film has now been finally relesed and so now is a good time to look back at the Star Trek reboot’s first film and mock the shit out of it, picking apart the film and the plot holes all for our amusement. And lens flares, lots and lots of lens flares. Calling it the JJ Abrams Star Wars demo reel is a particular highlight.
Commander Chris Hadfield is due to depart the International Space Station today and as a final goodbye he recorded this apt (albeit a slightly revised version) cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”, recorded on the ISS with Hadfield playing acoustic guitar. For the guy who rekindled the public’s interest in space travel via his tweets and images from space, it’s a fitting end.
This is sci-fi done at its best, with CGI used to enhance the story rather than just to look pretty and a narrative that’s both brilliant and terrifying. Meet ABE, he’s a robot with issues. And ABE is a fab character and it follows him after some bad programming gives him too much emotion which leads to some drastic consequences. But because he’s such a strong character you grow to feel for the little guy.

This has all you want from an epic sci-fi short. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world where all natural life has disappeared and it has a cyborg (gynoid?) Rosa who has to save planet earth and fight for her survival. Hollywood has now come calling, so watch it before it gets ruined.
There’s so much fail in this video that it actually becomes a win, from people being idiots and injuring themselves to cats thinking they can jump through the looking glass. If you’re having a bad Friday or you just need cheering up or even if you’re the happiest person ever, you should watch this video.
If you though Breaking Bad couldn’t get any cooler, then you were wrong, as Lego Breaking Bad is levels of epic that might well break the internets. It’s not a real video game, but imagines what a Lego Breaking Bad video game might actually look like. And lets be honest here, if they made a game like this everyone would buy it.
Inline skaters Pierre Lelievre and Finocchiaro travel to India and take to the streets of Delhi, Agra and a few other places to catch some sights, ride a motorcycle and rollerblade their way around the subcontinent, drawing intrigued crowds, applause and soaking up the Indian culture along the way – a beautiful ride, full of color and amazing landscapes. It’s a hard life.
It’s time for that ‘Friday Feeling’ as you slip into the weekend zone – Here’s another delicious dose of pictographic internet hilarity to help round out your week. Specially designed for the lazy web surfer, this gallery can be browsed using just your scroll wheel finger; simply scroll down, lol, then scroll down some more. Couldn’t be simpler!
Not many people have ploughed their way through David Foster Wallace’s magnus opus Infinite Jest — at over 1000 pages long and with a complex narrative it takes some dedication. But many people have listened to or read his talk he gave to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College, where he treats them to some life advice and details the value of education. Here it is set to images to create an engrossing video.
Let the sounds of Calavera & Manya’s “I Feel (Siente Me)” distract your ears while your eyes are entertained by the sight of women in bikinis. Yes, summer is coming. Hopefully. Which means long, lazy warm nights, barbeques everyday, a skip in your step, and most importantly, women walking around in skimpy swimwear. Life suddenly looks sweet.
We’ve all heard of Judge Dredd, well meet Judge William Minty (a minor character from the comic) in this fan made film. Minty has been policing the mean streets of Mega-City One his entire life. And now he wants to slow down a bit, but how will he choose to do this? Will he go the path of teaching, imparting his knowledge to the new recruits or will he choose to leave the city behind for pastures new?
Spock the original, takes on Spock 2.0 as the new and old school go head-to-head to battle it out using speed and their wits. Their vehicle of choice is not the Starship Enterprise or even just any old starship, instead it’s a more terrestrial vehicle in the shape of the Audi S7 (probably with a huge pile of cash in the trunk for the Spocks to share). Now for William Shatner vs. Chris Pine. Go!
If you’re drunk or stoned, then this is going to absolutely slay you. Even if you’re neither of those things then just watching this will make you feel like you’ve downed a few shots and smoked a fat one. It turns what can be a show that takes itself very seriously into something of sublime comedic fried gold. I bet even flesh-eating zombies couldn’t resist a quick smile.
OK, keep your eyes peeled because hidden deep inside this lolsome video about that redoes the narrative of Star Wars in modern day Stralia, are a helluva lot of references. Like, for instance, C3PO makes an appearance, as does R2-D2. So get your geek on and see if you can spot them all and if you do, then you win yourself some credentials of being a total Star Wars nerdling.
A guy sits down with his mom who hadn’t seen, or even heard of, the Wachowski’s classic 90s sci-fi film The Matrix to watch it together so that right after she could tell him what it was all about and he could animate that for our amusement. And after watching the video you’ll see that she’s just as confused as the rest of us about what the hell happens. Don’t show her the two sequels, her mind will melt.
