Things We Saw Today: The Hobbit, With Cats


As Jill pointed out, the cat version of Bilbo looks an awful lot like Crookshanks from Harry Potter. Anyway, everyone knows Martin Freeman is actually a hedgehog. (By Andrea Femerstrand, via Geek-Art)

For $479.99 you can have a Victorian TARDIS gown of your very own. Tempting. (By LoriAnn Costume Designs, via Fashionably Geeky)

  • Threadless is having a $10 sale. Purchase as you see fit.
  • There’s a petition to get CNN to apologize for their “disgusting” (their word, but one I agree with) coverage of the Steubenville rape trial. It currently has 58,000(ish) signatures and counting. Your move, CNN. (Buzzfeed)

After months of Disney/Star Wars fanart, we now have the first official Disney/Star Wars poster, created for Star Wars weekends at Disney theme parks. Meh. A lot of the fanart was better. (blastr)

    The Disney parks have been having Star Wars weekends for years now, and they’ve never been shy about putting Mickey and Donald into the action. I found a poster from 2010 that has Mickey, dressed as a Jedi complete with lightsaber, fighting Boba Fett, and Donald Duck made up to look like Darth Maul from 2012. So it’s not really a new thing.

    I might’ve preferred Chip & Dale to the actual Ewoks though… xD

    Super Mario Bros. also has a Peach Edition now: http://youtu.be/kbnsj7mmFBI

    3 games down, how many hundreds to go?

    Also, I guess I’m just a pessimist, but I’m bracing myself for Shigeru Miyamoto to publicly say something stupid about this trend.

    I was about to post the same thing, glad someone else beat me to the punch. I love Star Wars weekends, used to go every year in high school. Which was 2001-2005, so yes, very old news.

    And I think this is why Disney buying Star Wars didn’t surprise me. I was like “huh, they already have a relationship, I guess now they’re just taking it to the next level.”

    People have been hacking the sprites in pirated roms of 80′s and 90′s console and arcade games since the mid 90′s. It’s nothing new or rare.
