Miyazaki to Evangelion Creator: Make a Nausicaä Sequel

Okay, so, don’t freak out, but it seems that Hayao Miyazaki just gave Hideaki Anno permission to go ahead and make that Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind sequel he’s been bugging him about for years.

Things We Saw Today: Tiny Chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch’s Backside

Rebecca told me it was okay to make that the title of this post, so blame her. This was apparently left in the hotel room of Simon Pegg by the hotel’s services, and yes, it is entirely chocolate. (That’s Nerdalicious!)


Is Victoria’s Secret That She’s Into Anime?

Come on, Vicky, you can tell us! Neon Genesis Evangelion is really a great show, and probably about as mainstream as anime gets, outside of 4Kids Animation. I mean, it’s not like you’re watching Mononoke (that’s, Mononoke, not Princess Mononoke) or making elaborate Axis Powers Hetalia costumes.

Because seriously, I guess there’s a bra on Jourdan Dunn here, but mostly you’ve dressed her up in a Rei Ayanami cosplay. I mean, just look:

The 10 Worst Schools in Geekdom

Many people out there have headed back to school this week, whether they are students, teachers, or loving parents. And if not this week, then they’ve probably been at it long enough to already long for the blissful freedom of summer vacation.

And so, as the fortunate or unfortunate majority who no longer return to those hallowed halls yearly, and instead must assign our own homework, we’d like to highlight some schools where it doesn’t seem like any learning goes on at all, or where half the student body is dead by the end of the first semester.

10 Badass Ways of Getting Around

So you’re a bad ass. So you’re in a position to know of the significant challenges that you face, as a bad ass. You can’t just eat any old thing: you’ve got to go on a bad ass diet. You can’t just wear any old clothes: you’ve got to wear the clothes of a bad ass. And you can’t just roll up in your mom’s mostly powder blue Nissan Stanza.

We’re here to help.

A Cockatiel Singing The Theme Song to Neon Genesis Evangelion

Yes, yes, Papiko, the song is very catchy. But do you know Rinbu RevolutionTank? Lets get this party started.

The 10 Most Spectacular Ways the World as We Know It Could End

Did you know that last week there was an earthquake? Yeah, it was no big deal.

Did you know there was a hurricane this weekend? That was a bit more annoying, to say the least. But let us not forget: hurricanes? Earthquakes? Floods and fires? Mundane.

Zombies? Alien invasions? Played-out. Draconid Aspects of death? YAWN.

If we’re going to go out, let’s go out with a bang.

The 10 Worst Fathers in Science Fiction and Fantasy

Last year for Mother’s Day and Father’s day we did lists of the best parents science fiction and fantasy had to offer. And while they went over well, we got some requests from certain people very close to us to do a grid of the absolute worst examples of parenting we could think of, so that they might not feel quite so inferior in comparison. So we did it for the Moms, and now we’re doing it for the Dads.

In fact, the rest of these dads make the first worst father in science fiction you’re likely to mention (and the very first example on the list) look almost saintly in comparison.

Clever People Stage Live Action Neon Genesis Evangelion Opening

Oh Evangelion, you are so much nostalgia. With your upbeat, pop-y theme song that completely belies the seething storm of emotional and physical trauma lying just beyond the credits. And then your ending theme is Fly Me To the Moon, just to round out the selection of music that has little thematically to do with the show.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.
