Fëanor pours the entire internet into the Recyclotron, and only the best links come out the other end for you to enjoy.
- Sam Bosma draws frogs and kaiju.
- I feel like I've seen this person's work in a comic book, but maybe it just reminds me of somebody else's art. Anyway, it's good stuff.
- Holy crap, Game of Thrones got renewed already! I'm guessing the numbers for the premiere were good.
- io9 decides to answer the question, "How big an explosion could you realistically survive?" The answer is, not a very big one. Most of the explosions people survive in movies and on TV you wouldn't actually survive in real life. Which is disappointing, but not all that surprising. Best advice? Run as far away as you can as fast as you can.
- Listen to a BBC recording from 1939 of a British soldier playing King Tutankahmun's 3,000-year-old trumpets. (Via)
- Here's the first officially released clip from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. It looks like it's probably the opening scene. I can't say it's particularly impressive - I'm particularly unenthusiastic about Harry's final line there - but it's okay.
- Rockne S. O'Bannon, creator of Farscape, says he's doing a new series for Syfy. He sounds very excited about it. io9 speculates it might be an Alien Nation reboot. Regardless, it's intriguing news.
- Video of a guy demonstrating a mini-crossbow he made. It's got pretty impressive firepower, and he's a pretty good shot with it.
- Other video game characters audition their own rejected Mortal Kombat fatalities.
- Spock laser-etched onto a matza. (Btw, why is there no single, agreed-upon spelling for matza? Let's get together on this, people.)
- Some of these Super Mario propaganda posters are pretty good.
- The official announcement of which characters Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be playing in The Dark Knight Rises. They sound like nobodies, but as io9 points out, Christopher Nolan probably has surprises in store for us.
