In TV this week:

Want. (If you couldn't tell, it's a home theater done up to look like the bridge of the Enterprise.)

While we're talking Star Trek, check out this awesome ST:TNG recast by Jill Pantozzi (The Nerdy Bird) for The Mary Sue. I am so in love with the idea of John Barrowman as Q. And Tom Hiddleston as Data?


Gorgeous.

Mashups never get old. (Thanks, Colt!)

SCIENCE!

A group is working to restore Star Wars' Lars homestead (in Tunisia). (Thanks, Shaun!)

Some game news, from TGG:

These illustrations are a neat look at what a Pixar-ized Justice League might be like.

And this fan video looks would make for a really cool Justice League movie.

Dave Perillo's got mad skills.

D' awww.

This video is super awkward, but it's also hilarious and full of some really great Avengers puns. (Thanks, Tish!)


How precious is this photoset? Nick looks so much like the little GrabZags version of him.

I really love these Avengers/Disney photo sets.






(More here! via)

Wow. I'd love to see these Sailor Moon/Avengers costumes at a con. (Or wear one myself?)

And finally: This is so good. Let's just go ahead and mash all Joss Whedon properties together and make the world a more beautiful place.

    1. I'm so glad you agree, Mariel! I think he could do the role some serious justice. Not that I'm angling for a remake, of course. I just really like Tom, haha.

    2. we weren't able to go, but my best friend and his wife came over with their twilight dvd and their rifftrax and so we did the same thing, but cheaper. (and we got to pick our own beer).
      and yes, we should absolutely get together soon. at the very least just so the husbands can hang out in their bearded glory. (note: we are currently refilling the hot tub... though sadly it is not a time machine. (that i know of))
