Hero-Glyphics, Proof All Those Time Travel Story Events Were Real

Josh Ln has uncovered some rare artifacts, indeed, but I mean it’s not like the Egyptians were really nerds. They were probably only pretending to be to get the attention of the Greeks.

TV and Movie Scenes Re-Created In Minimalist Legos

Lego artist Nick Desimone has taken minimalist movie posters to the next level: minimalist Lego scenes. He renders classic characters in dioramas using the least amount of bricks possible, creating iconic moments without the benefit of faces, intricate detail, or non-geometric shapes– just with brightly-colored blocks.

Can you guess all of the movies and shows which are Lego-fied here?

And All Was Right With the World

Happy Birthday! It’s The Avengers, If They Were the Power Rangers [Video]

It’s not your birthday? …well, it’s not my birthday. You’d think that something this awesome could only be created for such an occasion.

Anyway, Rob Bricken of io9 makes a valid point:

Iron Man is the Red Ranger, naturally, Captain America is Blue, Hulk is Green… and then it gets tricky. Let’s say Thor is Yellow, because of his blonde hair; Black Widow has to be black because of her outfit and her name, which means Hawkeye by default is the Pink Ranger.

Hawkeye. No matter how you play it, he’s always the Strong Female Character.

Hillary White Paints Pop Culture into the Old Masters

Hillary White‘s DeviantArt gallery is full of handpainted portraits of popculture figures as if they were the original subjects of artists like Francois-Xavier Fabre, Frans Hals, Anthony Van Dyck, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and John Singer Sargent. Most of them are for sale. We thought you might be interested in that sort of thing.

10 Places In Which We Can’t Believe Anyone Lives

TVTropes has a great entry called Crapsack World, which covers any setting where the innate horribleness of the environment, both physically and morally, taints the entire world view of the characters and most of the plot. However, one of the obvious tenets of the Crapsack World setting is that it can’t be escaped from: there’s nowhere else to go.

Not so for the Crapsack city, vampire stricken town, or other murder, war, and crime plagued locations. Considering these places’ incredible frequency of death, unlawfulness, or unexplainable phenomena you’d think everybody would have moved out years ago. And yet… as far as you can tell they still function in much the way a normal community would.

Fangasm

This Man is Very, Very Enthusiastic About His Power Rangers Memorabilia, and It is Awesome

For us, one of the defining factors for being a nerd is sheer enthusiasm. In the words of one John Green:

“Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”

Well, this guy is very enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness. And the Power Rangers. Mostly the Power Rangers. And we are unabashedly happy for him, for we have surely had similar reactions when confronted with the geeky things we love. We also remember when they got their ninjeti coins and new zords and saved all those children on that runaway monorail.

And yes, this is what a fangasm looks like.
