As the resident robot fan around here, I guess it's no surprise that I absolutely love this charming video of 1,007 robots dancing and collectively breaking the Guinness World Record for most robots dancing at the same time. Yes, that's a world record that actually exists, and now it has been broken.Read More
I'd like to think that the Jon Bernthal we see in this appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden is what Frank Castle was like before his life was torn apart by tragedy. Putting on dance shows as a kid set to the music of Prince for all the moms and first grade girls along with his best friend, Dougie Thornel.Read More
They're cuter than BB-8. There. I said it. It's out there now.
Maybe it's the hype reaching critical levels, or perhaps it's my fandom finally taking over my senses, but my gosh these goofballs are just the most lovable dorks I've ever seen and I cannot take this anymore.Read More
"Shift weight from side to side and wave arms awkwardly" has proven effective in my own research.
Trying to impress someone with your dance moves? There's science for that. Researchers investigated and uncovered which dance moves women find most appealing, which means that, most importantly, we can now say with certainty that the most attractive dance moves are "scientifically accurate ones." It's a good day to be a nerd.Read More
My research will be into why this contest isn't called PhDance.
The "Dance Your Ph.D." contest, sponsored by Science journal publisher AAAS, tasks students with expressing their research through, well, dance. This year's winner was biologist Uma Nagendra, who just happens to have a leg—and several other limbs—up on the rest of the competition with her double life as a circus aerialist. Hit the jump for a priceless music video about mayonnaise that also came in as a finalist.Read More
That dance came from the moon.
If you've made it to level 20 in Destiny, chances are you're stuck grinding for engrams in the hopes that you'll nab some sweet Legendary gear. Or you could just say screw it, and dance your way across the solar system like this one intrepid Guardian. Now that, friends, is truly legendary.Read More
Christopher Walken In Direct-To-VCR ’80s Puss In Boots Musical Is All I’ve Ever Wanted From the Internet
All closet skeletons should have such facial hair.
I'm sure many of you already knew about the direct-to-VCR 1988 Puss in Boots musical starring Sean Connery's son Jason and a young Christopher Walken as a giant mustachioed cat-man.Read More
What, isn't every conversation about dancing Groot right now?
Just a few hours ago we posted the official video of Groot from the end of Guardians of the Galaxy dancing his tiny twiggy heart out. But as much as we want to pretend that giant talking trees are real and hanging out in actual space, Groot does not actually exist. So whose dance moves were those?Read More
Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!
If renowned authority on non-equilibrium molecular reaction dynamics Dr.David Glowacki was on the periodic table, he'd totally be a metal, dude: the scientist had to be physically removed recently from Britain's Old Vic theater for attempting to crowd surf at a classical concert. True story.Read More
Think carefully, baby: Howie or A.J.?
At what point does an infant's response to music transition from unrelated flailing to busting a baby move? A group of scientists undeterred by extreme cuteness observed a bunch of babies "dancing" to The Backstreet Boys to examine when humans develop a sense of rhythm (and if, right? I can't be the only one).Read More
Stow Your Second-Hand Embarrassment and Watch Billy Dee Williams Do a Star Wars Cha Cha On Dancing With the Stars
To be fair to Billy Dee, it's less him in particular I find embarrassing and more this entire show. It just makes me cringe. Even that snazzy Lando-esque cape with the spangly gold lining cannot rescue this video for me. I demand a memory wipe for the last five minutes of my life. Bail Organa, hook me up?Read More
More like Christopher Dancen, amiright? Guys? Guys. Hey. Where are you going?
Christopher Walken isn't just an actor. He's an entertainer with a strong dance background, and he likes to show it off. The guy dances quite a bit in movies. Don't believe me? Just watch this supercut from the Huffington Post's Ben Craw showing off some of Walken's best moves.Read More
The real winner is anyone who watches this.
The internet loves Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. Their incredible performances (as Loki and Sherlock, in particular) kind of don't even hold a candle to their real-life charm. But an important question remains: whose moves are smoother, Hiddles' or Cummerbund's? You'll have to decide for yourself.Read More
We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty
The Dance Your PhD Competition challenges grad students in STEM to explain the technical details in their projects not in laymans terms, but in interpretive dance. The grand prize is $1k, and a trip to a screening of their winning video at Stanford University. Here's Ambalika Khadria's winning entry in the field of Chemistry (a trick she developed to observe the behavior of proteins), but you can see the rest of the winners at io9.Read More
i'll just leave this here
Apologies if you've already seen this guys' weirdimpressive Attack on Titan-themed dance moves, as this video was uploaded back in May. But I just saw it, and I'm sure there are other new Attack On Titans fans who have yet to be exposed to it, too. I feel at this moment like I understand nothing about the universe. (via: Japanator) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More
