These illustrations from Lucy Knisley's first-ever viewing of Doctor Who are so great. (Thanks, Rachel!) Definitely check out her whole recap—it's hilarious.

Oh, good lord. I need this to happen. (Thanks, Rebecca!)

Doctor Who villains fit propaganda style so well.

Gorgeous.

This is a show I could get behind.

SCIENCE!

Big news for Scott Pilgrim fans: The books are being re-released ... in full color. (Thanks, Rachel.)

This GIF Rachel also sent me (along with the news) is appropriately awesome.


Also, while we're on the subject—how awesome would this mashup be?

What is this, I don't even. (Thanks, Wes.) 


Did you partake in any of the April Fools' tomfoolery last weekend? Here are three roundups of the best of the Internet's offerings:

From TGG:
The story revolves around a fictional parallel universe where the space race never ended, and corporations and wealthy individuals ventured out into the unknown. After an error occurred in the computers governing human sleep cycles while ships ventured out into uncharted space, humans woke up in the year 281,474,976,712,644 AD, finding little-to-no civilization remained.

I found a couple of gaming links, too:

This video hits home. I do have a bit of a hoarding problem in video games. (Thanks, Wes.)

I finally finished Mass Effect 3. I'm not totally in love with the ending I got, but I also don't hate it. I would, however, be more than OK with this cartoon continuing the franchise. (Thanks, Adam!)


These illustrations are super gorgeous. Every week, you guys, I am jealous of skills I will never have.



(via)

I wish these books were real!



(via)

Haha.


(via)

I like this illustration style a whole lot.

If you've been wondering what the Daleks were doing with all that time they've been away:


And if that video wasn't soothing enough, here's 24 whole hours of an idling Enterprise D.

  1. That Donatello art was pretty spectacular. Also, an interesting bit of trivia related to the Buffy/Han Solo image. Did you know Nerf Herder is the name of the band that wrote and performed the Buffy theme? They are not a Star Wars themed band in case you're wondering.

    I also thoroughly enjoyed the "first Dr. Who viewing" images. I imagine something similar will happen when we start the series in the near future. Do you even remember when I watched all of Eureka? Imagine that, but with Emily involved.

    I didn't even think about sending you April Fool's day links. XKCD's was the most amazing and subtle joke I think I've ever seen. Basically there were close to 50 different comics that would come up (not including very specific variations) depending on OS, browers, location and where it was linked from (and maybe the time of day?). It was awesome.

    1. I actually have a Nerf Herder t-shirt. I was a fan in high school/college because of both Buffy and their name. :)

      I can't wait until you guys start watching Dr. Who, seriously.
