Today In Geekdom: Tesla Coil Combat!

Why would two men dress up in special Faraday gimp suits and throw lightning at each other? BECAUSE SCIENCE IS FRAKKING AWESOME!

That’s why.

Today In Geekdom: Dead Island – Riptide Trailer Is Super Depressing

We’re entering a dangerous realm where video game trailers deliver more emotional impact than the game itself. I loved the first game but it didn’t deliver the punch the original trailer promised. Still, it’s an excellent trailer that’s probably better than the crapfest that’s going to be World War Z.

Today In Liberal Geekdom: How Zombies And Liberals See The World

Finally! My two favorite demographics overlap! Also, both groups just LOVE brains…

Today In Geekdom: Spock’s First Job

Few people know that, before he joined Starfleet, Spock tried his hand in the private sector. Other failed ventures: Spock’s Funtime Puppet Show, The Kolinahr Komedy Hour, Vulcan gigolo (only available once every seven years) and suicide prevention hotline (“Killing yourself is illogical.” had a success rate of .000913%).

Today In Geekdom: ‘Star Wars Detours’ From The Lunatics Behind Robot Chicken

Yes, that IS the Death Star Lit up like a disco ball.

From the creators of Robot Chicken comes Star Wars Detours:

“Star Wars Detours™ is an animated comedy that explores what daily life is like in a galaxy far, far away. There are no Empires striking back or attacking clones here. Instead, Star Wars Detours focuses on the universe’s regular folks and their everyday problems… which, to be fair, do frequently involve famous bounty hunters, crazed Ewoks, and even a Dark Lord of the Sith.
Welcome to Star Wars: Detours: the other side of the stars, between the wars”

It’s going to be on Cartoon Network in prime time so it won’t be quite as twisted as the RC stuff but it still looks absolutely awesome!

Today In Geekdom: HISHE – The Dark Knight Rises

“Because I’m Batman!” is quite possibly the correct answer to every question imaginable. Jeopardy should just change all the answers to “Because I’m Batman!” It would be the best show ever.

So there IS a formula to this stuff! I knew it!

Today In Geekdom: Trailer For Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns’


I was worried that they would try to squeeze it all in 90 minute cartoon but, thank you wise people at DC, they’re making it a two parter! I cannot WAIT to see Superman get his ass kicked!

I’m overlooking the fact that Frank Miller happens to be a misogynistic right wing douchebag because I’ve been waiting for this in animated form for over twenty years.

Today In Geekdom: Solar Day #2 For Curiosity (Gorgeous Image)

Still think NASA is useless? I’d like to see Bain Capital capture this beautiful landscape of another world.

The best part about this picture? Apparently Mars is in New Mexico!! In reality, I’m guessing that 360Cities just doesn’t have a “Mars” setting, needed to place the file somewhere and New Mexico is the most similar to the lifeless waste land that is Mars.
