Have you all seen this? Disney Princesses as Game of Thrones characters, woot for a great geeky mash-up. I’ll admit I probably don’t get all the nuances because I have a cursory understanding of the characters, but mash-ups will always equal awesome in my mind and these are some really pretty ones to boot. These beautiful illustrations are the result of DjeDjehuti on deviantArt. [via The Mary Sue]
Thanks to Sara for sending these my way. Sara you are right, seeing Belle’s side boob is very strange.
I know as much about twerking as I do disco, which is to say only what I’ve seen on social media and So You Think You Can Dance. But these hip hoppers are amazing. Also, who knew stormtroopers could be sexy?
Honestly, I’m a bit envious of the twerkers (is that the right word?). My hips are Mennonite bred and evolutionarily made for birthing babies, not grinding on the dance floor. And no those two things are not the same. [Via Bonnie Burton at CNET]
Due to incoming guests and family meals, I haven’t watched Sherlock. Yet. But I will. So, no spoilers. In the mean time, here is some fun Sherlocky spoiler free stuff on the interwebs.
Sherlock cosplay. His grin is the bestest!
Sherlock and John fan art. Though, I think John is quite clever himself.
Sherlock and MGM lion mash up. Because this one made me laugh out loud.
Sherlock and Mary Hopper anime fan art.
Possible Sherlock Legos to be made. It’s currently in the review stage. In the mean time enjoy the concept art work.
Probably most of you have already seen this popping up around the internets or on your Facebook wall, like I did. But I still have to share, because it is glorious.
Folks, you may have noticed that a couple of posts came out last Friday and funnily enough one on Saturday. Those were mistakes. Somehow, I got dates mixed up while I was putting together my posts and scheduling them for the future. What does that mean? Well, frankly, I’m behind at this point in how I like to schedule, and I really need a TARDIS? Anyone? Doctor? Someone?
Anyway, it also means that I haven’t had as much time to edit posts because I’ve been scrambling around trying to put them together instead. So I apologize for that. However, to make up for all of this, I have some cool things for you all to check out.
A Skeletal Micky Mouse, because awesome. Check out the artist’s site, more interesting works.
You can now explore Diagon Alley (at the theme park) via Google Maps. Which is kind of cool until you get to the end of the lane and hit a wall.
GoT characters as Simpson mash-ups. Because every awesome thing is awesomer if it is mashed-up with the Simpsons.
Amash-up between GoT and that Goyte song. There are spoilers. Even though I haven’t seen the show or read the books I can tell there are spoilers because . . . . I can, and I don’t mind, but you might. If you do watch the video, check out all the other nerdy references from Dr. Horrible to Doctor Who, I love catching (blatant) Easter Eggs like that.
This TARDIS tutu is rather simplistic, but I do love the idea. I’m not sure it is worth $150 as it looks like a cami (with TARDIS printing on it) has been sown onto tulle, but it is pretty. Aaaand further research shows that the $150 is only for the skirt. Hmmm. Well, perhaps tulle is expensive? Hmmm, well it does look labor intensive? I guess. Anyway, interesting idea. [via]
I know I have posted other mash-ups with Sully and Mike and the TARDIS door, but I just love this concept art. I just rewatched Monsters Inc. because Chris had never seen it and I wanted to rewatch it before I saw Monsters U, but then I never saw Monsters U. Which is still a bummer. Perhaps I’ll try to see it this weekend. [via]
I really enjoy beloved characters meeting each other, like this Doctor Who and Garfield cross over. The only time I want to see a Dalek and wouldn’t take a bat to it is if it were here to exterminate Mondays. You can buy it as a t-shirt or hoodie on Redbubble.
So there is this concrete bench down by the lake near where I live that gets painted every year. A committee comes up with a theme, divides the wall into sections and participants are given a section to paint as they will. It’s a cool concept and a great time with food vendors and music every year. Unfortunately this year I was on vacation while the festival took place, but my mom went and she got a picture of a very geeky section of the wall.

Game of Thrones opening Buffy Style.
Behind the scenes on the Buffy set. Some of the video quality isn’t the best. But it’s a lot of fun.
One of the reasons I follow Wil Wheaton on Google+ is because he posts awesome videos like the one below- A stop motion video on a board gaming universe about what happens after the lights are turned out. The short is just fantastic.
