WHOTWTW: Nerd City USA

As Comic Con looms, the web is geekier then ever!

Sax Carrby Sax Carr

Oh the web, the boiling pot of opinions, news, and what claims to be news but is in fact opinions. Well I’ve got a big novelty sized soup spoon of suggestions to sort out the best from the worst. Today we’re thinking geeky, because who doesn’t like some good old nerd-news:

 

AMAZING BATTLESTAR DUBSTEP

Battlestar Galactica (Cylon Dubstep Remix) by The Weekend Pilots

http://soundcloud.com/theweekendpilots/battlestar-galactica-cylon-1


The Weekend Pilots are an amazing musical comedy group from sunny Los Angeles, and when they are not making us laugh, they are making cool music. Check out this dubstep mix of some Batlestar Galactica. Play it while you browse this article, I’m writing too it, it will sync up! Oh and stay tuned to the Comedy Channel for a little story on the Pilots. You’ll be glad you did.

 

REAL LIFE HOVERBIKE

http://www.hover-bike.com/

God I hope this isn’t a horrible scam. I can NOT wait to chase stormtroopers on this thing. But there is a pretty good chance that the second you try to get on this thing it will turn out to be a fake, complete with hover sounds provided by Flanders with wax paper and a comb. If this happens in my lifetime I will go around kissing people like the guy in Love Potion #9.
 

SOME DUDE “SOLVES” THE LIGHTSABER PARADOX


http://crasstalk.com/2011/06/i-have-solved-all-your-lightsaber-problems/

I have no idea who this guy is… but I like the way he thinks. Anyone who spends his days working out how Lightsabers can be made, AND ranking the breasts of superheros is cool in my book. Well… he’s either cool in my book, or he’s me. This guy is not me. I think the first time we all saw Star Wars we knew that some day a Lightsaber would only be several dozen technological advances away. FINALLY!

Oh and the Lightsaber Chopsticks are here if you like em:

WHO THE HELL IS THIS GUY !?!?!

I stumbled on this guy’s tumblr when I found a story about the neon sign inspired art he’s being doing for movies. I love everything he does. SO DO YOU! You do. You can’t deny it. Everything he does. Buy it on a shirt. (This guy better pay me a royalty for that subtle advertisement)

 

TAKE THAT INDIANA JONES

Remember the third challenge in Last Crusade? Well take a leap of faith on your own sidewalk with this AMAZING art that exploits perspective illusion. If I could make these, the sidewalks around my house would look like a trek up the Himalayas. Oh sidewalk art its almost as good as movies… wait… no its not! Who wants to take in a flick.

 

Tune in next week for MORE of the best of the web. I promise. Or you can send me some suggestions care of @SaxCarr – LETS DO IT!
