Video: White & Nerdy

Video: White & Nerdy

Being 80s/90s kids, we’re happy to see Weird Al at it again with White & Nerdy; this music video’s been out for a little while but we like the way it speaks to nerds of all colors (and species).

Custom Star Wars Art

Can’t convince your friends you’re a Sith Lord? NovaPop’s custom Star Wars art shows the power of your Dark Side by personalizing Storm Troopers, Palpatine or Boba with your own face.

Akira, American Style

Akira, American Style

With a Warner Bros live-action Akira due in 2009, American Akira is both hilarious and terrifying, similar to what might happen if Michael Bay made a Transformers movie. Oh, wait…

Video: Tokyo Reality

Video: Tokyo Reality

Although we liked Reverie, we prefer Akihabara News’ use of the EOS 5D MKII in Tokyo Reality for its multiple “day in the life” shots; if you like people watching, this is your video.

Hard Knocks Orlando

Hard Knocks Orlando

Forget The Great Office War; Hard Knocks Orlando is so real (weapons with muzzle flashes) that it’s used by SWAT teams for training; choose from Office, Warehouse and Coliseum arenas.

Short Film: Khoda

Reza Dolatabadi’s Khoda looks rotoscoped, but it’s actually 6,000 individual paintings created over the course of two years and compiled into the five minute “psychological thriller” above.

Made for the Discovery Channel, this video is a funky time-lapse animation of eight artists expressing the fate of the world on a circular wall in Cape Town, South Africa in July 2008.

Art: Przemyslaw Kucinski

Art: Przemyslaw Kucinski

Przemyslaw Kucinski’s artwork can best be described as organo-metallic, with pieces that are both sci-fi and sensual; he hasn’t updated since 2006, but there’s still over 5 years of work.

Star Wars Campaign Ads

Star Wars Campaign Ads

With the presidential elections behind us, it’s time to turn to the hotly contested Palpatine and Calrissian race; yes, that’s really Billy Dee Williams trying to unite Jawas and Sandpeople.

Barack Obama Nanotubes

Barack Obama Nanotubes

With Obama elected president, it’s time to reveal how he’ll get his work done: a horde of mini-Obamas constructed with 150 million carbon nanotubes by UMich engineer John Hart.

Artwork: Nekro

Artwork: Nekro

One look at Nekro’s darkly futuristic pieces and we had to feature him; aka Borja Fresco Costal, this Spain-based artist sticks with a largely monochrome palette with strategic bursts of color.

Homemade F-35 Jet

Homemade F-35 Jet

Tired of waiting for the real-life JSF, Dutchman Arthur van Poppel has created his own drivable mini F-35; the plane is awesome, but Arthur, seriously… a John Denver soundtrack?

Short Film: Digital Human

Short Film: Digital Human

This isn’t the first thousands of photos film we’ve featured, but Micah Spears’ Digital Human focuses on the pervasive nature of tech in our lives; the NYC street scenes are particularly telling.

Video Game Costumes

Video Game Costumes

We admit that cosplay often ranks high on our dork-o-meter. However, many of these 31 video game costumes are amazing, from a Link lookalike to a drop-dead sexy Ivy Valentine.

Star Wars Halftone Art

Star Wars Halftone Art

S. Hafsteinsson’s tongue-in-cheek Star Wars halftone art mixes old photos of Iceland with storm troopers, Nebulon-Bs and AT-ATs; check out Reykjavik Invasion and Troopa De Elite.

Designed to be used as temporary disaster shelters, these Folded Bamboo Houses by Ming Tang have an origami-like shape that makes them both structurally sound and modular.

John Williams A Capella

John Williams A Capella

Above is a goofy lip-synched a capella video by Corey Vidal, done to John William themes including Star Wars and Indiana Jones; it was done with the original singers’ blessing.

Ubuntu Linux 8.10

Ubuntu Linux 8.10

Chances are if you run Ubuntu you already know, but 8.10 (“Intrepid Ibex”) is now available; chief amongst its features is 3G support, the Linux 2.6.27 kernel, and Samba 3.2.3.

Mecha Costume

Mecha Costume

We’ve personally dressed as a skeleton, a ghost and a pumpkin for Halloween, but this mecha costume is just plain awesome. The kid wanted to be a robot, and his dad absolutely delivered.

LEGO Headless Horseman

LEGO Headless Horseman

Evil Mad Scientist Labs recently discovered that LEGO minifigs perfectly fit 5mm LEDs; the result: freaky, glowing versions of Sleepy Hollow’s Headless Horseman and radioactive ghouls.

Stuck with a carving knife and a blank pumpkin? PumpkinGutter.com has plenty of ideas. This year’s picks include Boba Fett, Iron Man, and the Imperial Stormpumpkin. Thanks, M!

Mac-O-Lanterns

Mac-O-Lanterns

We kinda wish we had some Mac Classics lying around, because these custom Mac-O-Lanterns are pretty easy to make: just some epoxy, spray paint and a JPEG jackolantern face.

Zombie World Record

Zombie World Record

They’re not Black Friday shoppers: on 10/26 at the Monroeville Mall, thousands gathered to set a record for “Most Attended Zombie Walk“; it’s also where they filmed Dawn of the Dead.
