Things We Saw Today: The Velociraptor Flask


Well, if you didn’t already have a reason to become a career drunk, here is a very great reason: the flask made from a (porcelain) velociraptor claw. Currently being sold on Etsy, so have at it dino-loving lushes! (via Reddit)

Deadline is reporting a “pre-emptive pitch deal” by Disney for a movie adaptation of Stuff of Legend, the graphic novel by Mike Raicht and Brian Smith and illustrated by Charles Paul Wilson III. The plan is for Pete Candeland to direct and Shawn Christensen to write the screenplay.

  • As a followup to their Marvel superheroine movie wish list, Comic Book Resources has compiled a new DC Comics version, complete with possible actresses who could carry their own movies.
  • The Frisky has brought our attention to a new reality series called My Life Is a Lifetime Movie that will be aired on … wait for it … Lifetime! Your life (is horrible), your time (is going to be terribly inconvenienced by the legal system and horrible men) — Lifetime!
  • J.J. Abrams‘ production company Bad Robot is going to take on The God Particle, about the Large Hadron Collider. (via Geekosystem)
  • Because seriously, how can one dog and his human go on so many strange adventures that are purely nonsensical and never have to go home for dinner? This explains everything. (via Nerd Approved)

    Previously, we told you about the print that Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson created to raise money for Team Cul de Sac, which is raising money for Parkinson’s disease; the creator of the Cul de Sac comic strip, Richard Thompson, was diagnosed with the disease. Well, it went up for auction on Sunday and raised $13,415. Good show, Team Cul de Sac! (via Robot 6)

    Disney has created the video game for its upcoming Wreck-It Ralph, and you can play it at Geek Tyrant!

      That Adventure Time explanation was done by Robot Chicken for Calvin & Hobbes… Almost. And it was done for… uh… Rainbow Brite. I think some others too, maybe.

      There was a whole SHOW based on this depressing concept. The name slips my mind, but the entire gag was this kid was in a coma, and having a far better life in his fantasy world.  And the way they spun it, IIRC, when they tried to help him, you were supposed to be cheering AGAINST it.

      I forget, has anyone here mentioned that the third Doctor had a companion named…Elizabeth (Liz) Shaw?

      Do you mean The Odyssey? It was a Canadian kids show in the 90′s. The main character was Jay, who was stuck in a coma after falling from a tree fort. He has to make his way home through a fantasy world populated only by kids and teens, with lookalikes of his real life friends, while also searching for his missing father. To say that life in the other world was better is a stretch. It wasn’t, really.

      Ok, I want to start a campaign: Gwendoline Christie as Wonder Woman.

      Put her in a black wig and let her rip. She’s big, powerful, and commands the screen. Yes yes yes to this.
