Thorgi and BaneCat

Thorgi and BaneCat Figurines [Video]

Thorgi and BaneCat

I’m not really into collectables, but Eric Ho’s BaneCat and Thorgi Internet sensation memes might just start something.

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t need one of these little 3D printed guys sitting on your desk? Giving you the eye; guilting you into getting whatever it is you need to do get done.

Ginger BaneCat

“You complain that it’s dark? I was born in darkness. I thrive in darkness. I am better than you.”

Don’t let BaneCat talk that way! Buckle down and finish what you’re working on!

Then again, they may just be distracting.

Thorgi

“Why does thou mortal not just urinate on what thou wants? Claim it and it will be yours!”

Calm down, Thorgi, it doesn’t quite work that way.

What? Inanimate objects can speak to you all the time, it just depends on your imagination…or how intoxicated you are. See the following video for more details.

Whichever way these adorable 3D figurines might tempt you, it has to be said, these are too cute not to share. But if you know someone whose life would benefit from a 3D printed collectables, you can find Thorgi for $25.00 and BaneCat (as well as other fantastic meme cats) for $19.99 at Eric Ho’s product pages.

I’m pretty certain I need dis.

Thanks to Nerd Approved for introducing us to BaneCat and Thorgi!

Which Character Are You?

Ever wonder if you’re the hero or the villain? Or just who exactly you are? Thanks to Tumblr, Google Images, and the Internet in general, now you can have a little better of an idea with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). (Image Source) So what is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator? The MBTI is a psychological questionnaire that helps categorize people into different personality types to help explain how people perceive the world. While you can’t put people into boxes, a personality usually fits quite nicely…

What It’s Like to Live Spoiler-Free Post “Game of Thrones”

In a world of shocked Social Media Enthusiasts determined to ruin it for you. Last night marked the grand finale of the fourth season of “Game of Thrones” and, according to the World Wide Web, it was a shocker. As for this writer? Well, I’m comfortable assuming it was chock full of those classic George R.R. Martin induced “WTF Moments.” But I can’t technically say that I know with any certainty. Because I haven’t seen that last four episodes of the season. Because  reasons. But…

Meanwhile, On Tumblr: Sleeping Beauty is the New Regina George

Who doesn’t love a good “Mean Girls” reference every now and then? The Tumblr account Dopey Beauty started this meme/gif of Mean Girl Aurora. And it is a beautiful thing. We’re pretty sure even Tina Fey would be amused by what she’s inspired. Probably. Buzzfeed loves Mean Girl Aurora so much they have an entire article featuring their favorite Sassy Sleeping Beauty insults. We don’t blame them.

Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Excuse Us While We Fangirl…The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is Back! (Briefly)

A little over a year ago wrapped one of the most impressive youtube series we’ve ever had the pleasure of viewing…and they’ve just released an update! The incredible youtube series, co-produced by Bernie Su and Hank Green (of Vlogbrothers fame), launched back in March of 2012 as a modern retelling of the Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice. Starring the amazingly talented Ashley Clements as Lizzie Bennet, a 24 year old mass communications grad student vlogging her way to her thesis, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries was a masterful,…

George R.R. Martin

George R.R. Martin Isn’t Your Average Author…

For a multitude of reasons, of course. Perhaps the most interesting? Forget Microsoft Office Suite, Martin writes on Wordstar 4.0 — running on DOS.

Obviously — inevitably —  George R.R. Martin has a secondary computer where the author can browse the internet and check his email, but for writing his thousand page epics for A Song of Fire and Ice?  Wordstar 4.0 offers a secluded space free of distractions like those pesky spellchecks or the random facebook/reddit/livejournal detours. Catch Martin’s take on his unusual writing habits in an interview with late night talk show host Conan.

Tyrion Lannister

Youtube Rec: The Trial of Tyrion Lannister

We love this animated short on the upcoming trial of beloved Game of Thrones character, Tyrion Lannister. You will too.

A sister who wants him dead, a father acting as judge who also wants him dead, his wife gone and no witness willing to come forward — George R.R. Martin certainly made things look bleak for Tyrion when he wrote this bit. How will Tyrion make out in the upcoming trial? One youtube user has an idea…

Just days away from the actual airing of the HBO episode, Tyrion is brought to trial in this animated skit for slaying the king, but how will he defend himself when everyone he trusts already fled King’s Landing?”

Game of Thrones, episode 6: “The Laws of Gods and Men” airs this Sunday night on HBO at 9pm/8C.

Billy Eichner

You Never Knew John Mayer Lyrics Were This Cheesy, Thanks Billy Eichner

Who doesn’t adore comedian Billy Eichner these days? Between his recrurring roles on Parks and Rec,  and Bob’s Burgers combined with his Funny or Die series “Billy on the Street,” we’re seeing more of Eichner than ever before. And we’re loving every second of it. Eichner’s particular brand of funny is quirky, a little brash and definitely utilizes his full vocal volume range. In his most recent minisode of “Billy on the Street,” Eichner met up with the talented Olivia Wilde. They discuss her sex life with fiancee,…

Watch Ben McKenzie Nail It as a Young Det. Jim Gordon in the New “Gotham” Trailer

We’ve been curious as to what Fox had in mind for the Batman Prequel ever since it was announced earlier this year, now they’ve finally given us a glimpse to what’s in store. And personally? This writer isn’t terribly disappointed. Granted, I’m not comic book fanatic so my knowledge of Gotham and Batman, the Riddler, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Penguin is limited to cheesy reruns of Adam West’s 1966 interpretation of the masked vigilante — and, of course, movies released in the last 20 years.…
