Things We Saw Today


This fake Lord of the Rings comic mockup by Andy Hunter is both clever and amusing. We approve. (via Calvin’s Canadian Cave of Cool) Full-steam ahead for everything else we saw today! 

  • Check out LEGOlas. Lego + Legolas from the forthcoming LOTR sets. (via ForeverGeek)
  • Cover art and details for The Muppets blu-ray and DVD! (via The Daily Blam)
  • There is a fanmade Torchwood comic. It is called Torchwood Babiez. It is adorable.

If Harry Potter used a cell phone, this is what the main screen would look like (it’s really a t-shirt). (via Fashionably Geek)

  • Fictional characters wearing scarves. It’s a good thing. (via Geek with Curves)
  • A neat gallery of Katherine Hepburn and her best quotes sits at The Gloss. For instance, “”If you want to give up the admiration of thousands of men for the disdain of one, go ahead and get married.”
  • An Oxford professor created some mathematical forumae to explain famous movie scenes. (via Reddit)

Dan Hipp gives us an alternate view on the classic Princess Leia/Jabba the Hut “fight.”

  • You can own a poster-sized print of you riding a dinosaur. Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds. (via Geekologie)
