  1. This Just In: Hello Kitty Is Not a Cat

    Nothing is real anymore.

    Up is down! Black is white! Cats are... well, they're not dogs, but they definitely aren't cats either, apparently

  2. Enter the TARDIS on Google Maps

    Next week: Keep an eye out for the double arrows leading to the floating market.

    Visit Earl's Court Road on Google Street View, and click on the double arrows. End up in a time machine. Yep, that's just about how most of my trips to London go.

  3. Doctor Who Takes Over Heathrow Airport For 50th Anniversary

    Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff

    According to a press release sent out this morning: In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, the show has teamed up with Heathrow airport to bring a little Time Lord excitement into the lives of airport passengers. It may not be bigger on the inside, but London's Heathrow Airport is pretty darn big on its own! So, what does this takeover entail?

  4. Indie Band’s Music Video Lets You Control How Drunk They Are With the Click of a Button [Video]

    People from London are really good at two things: indie rock and getting sloshed.

    When Moones set about brainstorming for a live session music video to promote their latest EP, Ollie Kristian had a genius idea: Record their single "Better Energy" over and over again, but have each member of the band drink four beers each between every take. The result is a multi-angle masterpiece of drunkenness that uses over 10,000 YouTube annotations to allow you total control over the band's blood alcohol level at any given moment of the song. Man, if only actually getting drunk were that easy -- think of the money we'd all save!

  5. “Fatbergs” in London Sewer to Become World’s Grossest Alternative Energy Source

    While fossil fuels drive the economy, they're not going to last forever, which is why we're looking pretty much everywhere for new sources of energy. Now solar power, wind power, biodiesel fuel, geothermal energy, and many other have been joined by a new source of fuel: Fatbergs, the massive lumps of congealed oil that coagulate and sometimes clog the sewers of London. A British energy company is planning to harvest the bergs and use them to generate electricity. Enough electricity, in fact, to power 39,000 British homes every year.

  6. Listen to the Radio Drama of Neverwhere While You Still Can

    We said it was coming, and now it's here. BBC 4 Radio has already aired their radio drama of Neil Gaiman's novel Neverwhere. Even better than that, you can listen to the whole thing for free. It's not going to be up forever, though, and I'm sure it'll be for purchase and download at some future date. But you can stream it right now!

  7. Quadcopter Fleet Plugs Star Trek By Forming Starfleet Insignia In London Sky [Video]

    While it's a shame it's not higher quality, I'm still amped by this video of 30 lit quadcopter robots forming a Starfleet insignia in the night sky above London, because...well, it's that sentence. Do I really have to explain why I'm totally down with it? Yes, I know it's a shameless publicity stunt. But considering it's a publicity stunt for a thing I'm already totally going to spend my money on (and you know I'm not alone there) and also involves robots, I can get behind it with fairly little trouble.

  8. Is the Penguin Invading London Now? Giant Rubber Ducky Sails the Thames

    For reasons we still don't quite understand, Tim Burton decided to have the Penguin cruise around Gotham City in a giant rubber ducky in Batman Returns. That made about as much sense as what happened yesterday. To promote their new "FUNdation," JackPotJoy.com sailed a 50-foot-tall rubber ducky down the Thames in London, England. Is JackPotJoy.com a thing in America? We wouldn't hate seeing a giant rubber ducky cruising down the Hudson when we leave work today.

  9. Cosplay Is More Epic When Set To Music [VIDEO]

    Why Not Do It With Some Style?

    Seriously though, it kinda is. We've since a few music videos come out of the London MCM Expo, one with lip syncing, one without. Well here's another without. Check out cosplayers spanning all geek genres looking awesome.

  10. London Council to Install 14,000 Streetlights Capable of Being Controlled by iPad

    Cutting energy costs by fiddling with streetlights is something that's seen debate in the United Kingdom. Turning them off entirely isn't exactly a great option, of course, but there's little that can be done with the infrastructure as it currently exists beyond flipping them off and on. Westminster City Council is looking to change all that. Over the next four years, they'll be switching their 14,000 streetlights to smart alternatives capable of being controlled by an iPad, saving the council hundreds of thousands a year.
