Giant Mechs (in REAL LIFE!)
In a week where we saw Guillermo del Toro’s Giant Robot/Monster movie trailer PACIFIC RIM we also found this video (and article) about an actual giant robotic vehicle you can literally climb into and drive around shooting a variety of “weapons” using an iphone!  Pretty crazy stuff, but when the giant beasts from the ocean floor come to the surface looking for a fight we’ll be glad we have the Kuratas!

I’m yessing so hard.




A giant eyeball that washed ashore in Pompano Beach, Fla. The softball-sized eyeball was reported to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Wednesday, and wildlife officers put the specimen on ice. It will be preserved and sent to the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, Fla., for analysis. “The primary suspect right now is that it would be a large fish,” she said. Among the possibilities are a swordfish, or a tuna, or some sort of deep-water fish species.

Shit I Clicked On Sunday - September 9th

Welcome to the first-ever Shit I Clicked On Sunday. Every Sunday, I’ll be compiling a list of random things I found across the interwebs by just clicking on the things people post on Twitter. I’m a habitual clicker, and I’m the person most likely to click on the links other people just ignore because they’re busy or just unaware of the awesomeness that lies behind that link.

Anyway, here goes! This week’s post includes a LEGO Tardis, a Star Trek desk, a reminder of how awesome the Season 2 Blu-Ray set of The Walking Dead is, and my review notes on NBC’s newest show, Revolution.
