Things We Saw Today: X-Wing Book Sculpture


By Jodi Harvey-Brown, who made those awesome book sculptures we featured about a month back. I almost gave myself a headache trying to figure out whether she used books from Aaron Allston and Michael Stackpole‘s X-Wing series for this. (via blastr)

  • NASA’s Kepler telescope has discovered a planet almost identical to Earth. I agree with The Frisky that the name they’ve chosen—KOI (Kepler Object of Interest)—is kind of underwhelming. I like koi ponds as much as the next person, but c’mon, “Kepler Object of Interest”?
  • Via Jezebel, the Lingerie Football League—in which ladies play football dressed in lingerie, as the name indicates—is changing its name to the Legends Football League and dressing its players in actual football gear as part of its efforts to refocus on athleticism.
  • Yesterday we found out that George R.R. Martin would be writing the seventh episode of the third season of Game of Thrones. Today came the news that the episode, previously titled Autumn Storms, is now called Chains. (via blastr)

Community‘s Abed and Annie in the Dreamatorium, by znuese and available in t-shirt form or as a print at RedBubble. (via Fashionably Geek)

And finally, here’s a new poster for Dreamworks’ Epic, about a teenage girl who gets shrunken down to leaf-size and helps save her local forest. The dude behind her in the green armor has something of Flynn Rider about him, no? (via: ComingSoon)

  • Rarity

    I really don’t see the Flynn Rider resemblance. Is that just me?

    I’m astounded that, even in a setting dominated by green, they managed to make the poster almost completely orange and teal.
