Nerd News: Doctor Who timelines, Inception meets Batman, "Roll a D6" and more

Vol. 2, Issue 18

I am bushed. Who knew a field trip with a bunch of fourth graders could take so much outta ya? (Kidding, I knew.) Also, headed to the Thor midnight premiere tonight. It's a really good thing tomorrow is Friday. (I promise to at least try to get actual work done tomorrow.)

In TV news this week:

You know what also makes me excited? The very-real possibility of a Doctor Horrible 2. (Thanks, Rebecca!)

I've fallen, hard, for Tom Whalen's illustration skills.

That episode of The Twilight Zone with William Shatner and that ... thing ... on the wing of the plane is the SCARIEST EPISODE EVER.

And—as weird as this sounds—how hot are these hipster versions of Harry, Ron and Hermione?

For you Mass Effect fans, these screenshots reveal Liara will play a role in the third game. (Can't. Wait.)

Jayne is such a perfect(ly flawed) character.

Side note, the Jayne hats are EVERYWHERE at Comic Con. (I want one, I'll admit it.)

In movie news:

Love these Doctor Who "bands".

Brilliant art, creepy (as hell!) villains.

I can never get enough of the minimalist movement.

Great "Like a G6" spoof for all you Dungeons and Dragons fans out there:


Thanks, Wes!

Can I get an awwww/HA?

Regardless of your feelings on the movies, these prequel posters go great with the Olly Moss-designed set I've posted about before.

This Alice in Wonderland restaurant is gorgeous. Too bad I'm not going to be traveling to Tokyo any time soon!

Inception meets Batman in this mashup-movie trailer, which is really well done.

The joys of Tumblr: Fox Mulder's many wristwatches.

Warm up your queues: Marvel cartoons are coming to Netflix!

And finally, My Little Pony mashups never cease to amuse/amaze:

  1. The Doctor/River timeline was just what I was looking for, but still so confusing. lol
    Yody + Ewok = Gremlin?!?!?1 So cute!
    Hipster Harry & friends actually look super cool. Ha ha. Does that make me a hipster?
    I love minimalist movie posters, too. You know something is a classic if you can simplify it to just silhouettes and know exactly what it is.

  2. I want all the posters! Especially the fake Doctor Who bands.

    Hipster Harry reminds me that I really want a scarf like that. The fact that the colors are the same as those of my college rival is the only reason I can't bring myself to buy one.

    His owl sweater seems very appropriate.

  3. Tish-I struggle with the existential "am I a hipster" all the time, haha.

    Jen-Ugh. I have a Gryffindor scarf (but I prefer to wear my Ravenclaw one). I actually found it, way back when, at H&M, of all places.

  4. Ron as a hipster looks so David Bowie glam rock! (That's not a complaint). And Rachel Weisz in Oz? Yes, please. Total girl crush.

  5. Megan-Good call on the glam rock! :)
