Fëanor pours the entire internet into the Recyclotron, and only the best links come out the other end for you to enjoy.
- President Obama will be on Mythbusters tonight. GeekDad lowers expectations about the episode, but says it's still a good one.
- A set of photos of action figures of Doctor Who villains hanging out in various real-world locations. (Via)
- A kick-ass music video for one of the best tracks on the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, "Derezzed." It features cyber-jousting! (In case you missed it, I named the Tron: Legacy soundtrack one of the top ten albums of 2010.)
- NASA's much-hyped arsenic life form announcement may have been a bunch of hooey. Disappointing!
- Somehow I only just realized this, but A.V. Club is doing a holiday version of Undercover. That means they're bringing ten artists into their weird little round room to cover ten holiday songs. Example: here's Kate Nash and her band doing a rather lovely cover of "Merry X-Mas Everybody."
- My friends, here it is, the pinnacle of our achievements as a species: the trailer for Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus. This film features Robert Picardo and Jaleel "Urkel" White. Astounding.
- Syfy must have liked the pilot for Alphas, that show about ordinary people who gain superpowers, because the network just ordered 11 episodes.
- December means lots of end of year best of lists. Here's A.V. Club's picks for the best music of 2010.
- Witness the ridiculousness that is a 149-hit combo in Super Street Fighter IV.
- Blah Blah Blah: The Video. A celebration of blah blah blah in movies and television.
- An impressive compendium of Super Mario glitches. Many are accompanied by handy animated GIF demonstrations. (Via)
- The "Song of Healing" from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, performed on wine glasses.
- Casino R'lyeh Cthulhu Mythos Poker Cards.
- Here are a couple of links that I already posted to Twitter, but couldn't help reposting here. First off, some fun travel posters for comic book cities. Next, some amazing casting news for The Hobbit: Cate Blanchett is returning as Galadriel, and Sylvester "Seventh Doctor" McCoy will play Radagast the Brown. Of course, the fact that Galadriel and Radagast are showing up means we're going to get to see the meeting of the White Council that happens "off-screen" in the book, during one of the various times that Gandalf splits from the company to do his own thing. I have to say, I am VERY EXCITED about this!! Plus, the Doctor is going to be Radagast! Awesome.
- A sampling of some of the great art up for auction on eBay in support of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
- Super Punch highlights some great photography, including these shots of weird mushrooms, and this one of coral.
