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.
“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.
“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!
Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen singing ‘The Hanging Tree’ is one instance where the movie did the book incredible justice
If you haven’t seen Mockingjay Part 1 this clip won’t ruin anything for you, but it just might get you super excited for this particular scene!
There’s a moment in the book where Katniss is sitting in a tranquil outdoor setting in District 13 and is asked by one of her entourage to sing. She thinks about it for a moment and then starts to sing the perfect song at the right time.
It goes to show the Girl on Fire is the voice of the revolution.
While I personally have qualms with the movie, it is undeniable that this particular scene, while itself somewhat unimportant in the book, was goose-bump inducing in the theater. The studio did a brilliant job transitioning Suzanne Collins song from paper to screen and made ‘The Hanging Tree’ the vital part of the story that the author wanted it to be. Hats of to Lionsgate for making this moment chilling.
Not only that, but ‘The Hanging Tree’ has put our favorite leading lady Jennifer Lawrence on Billboards top 100 chart.
Some of the Cumbercollective say they’ll listen to Benedict Cumberbatch read the phone book, but we’ll settle for R. Kelly’s “Genius”
If you need any of us, we’ll be taking a cold shower.
Have a happy weekend!
Our favorite Doctor is back for Doctor Who Series 8 with his new look and–from the looks of it–a new Tardis on Saturday August 23rd!
Who’s excited?! The first episode of the new Doctor Who Season 8 is titled ‘Deep Breath.’
What do you think of this new trailer? It’s looking like we can expect the pilot to involve some damage to the Tardis, a dark welcome to this new reincarnation, and a panicked Clara. BBC One announced on their Facebook page that Doctor Who is premiering August 23rd, and E!Online announced it will premier in the States on August 23rd at 8pm on BBC America.
Check out the image BBC released on their Facebook page:
Rejoice, fellow Whovians, the time of the premier countdown is here!
The Capitol is ramping up against any forms of resistance. They love their people, they won’t tolerate terrorism, and above all else, Peeta is right there with them.
For the full experience, we at Larkable suggest going to The Capitol TV, however it appears they may be having technical difficulties. I don’t want to give away any spoilers to those who haven’t read the third installment of the Hunger Game Series, Mockingjay, but for the rest of us, what else should we expect from Capitol TV but technical difficulties? Nudge, nudge, wink, wink?
For now, I’ll just leave this here.
Also for those of us who know what’s coming, doesn’t Peeta just break your heart? Isn’t that exactly how you pictured it? Oh God, Peeta! I hurt for Katniss right now.
In case you need some fan art regarding that moment, I suggest ShiningStar4Y2’s Mockingjay manip video, Katniss Sees Peeta with Snow at TV. If you need me, I’ll be curled up under the blankets crying.
Thanks to Fangirlish for being right on top of their game and getting this video out!
Dont’t forget to share the message with all your friends!
Here at Larkable we do love our covers, medleys, and parodies, and this Game of Thrones Medley from Zoneheads nails it!
Thanks to Uncle George (that’s George Takei to those who aren’t familiar) for sharing this post on Facebook!

HBO wants to wish Dad’s everywhere a Happy Father’s Day, and also: don’t forget to tune in for the grand, sweeping season finale of Game of Thrones.
Like we really needed the reminder. As season four of the epic fantasy series wraps up, show creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff have been persistent in letting people know that this finale is the “best finale [they’ve] ever done, bar none.” In fact, the episode in question — chillingly titled “The Children” — has been submitted for two Emmy’s: Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup. Though every episode of this phenomenal season has set a new viewing record every week, “The Children” is the first ever submitted for Emmy consideration. Clearly, Weiss and Benioff are fairly confident that the cast and crew have truly outdone themselves this time. In a statement, the duo praised the hard work of everyone on set saying, “The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new cues from Ramin Djawadi – all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we’ve produced.”
All this to say, get your Father’s Day priorities straight and be ready to tune in for the 66 minute finale, this sunday on HBO at 9pm/8c. Happy Father’s Day…Winter is Coming.
No specific dates yet, unfortunately, BUT there’s a Doctor Who Series 8 trailer to ease the wait!
Okay, so it’s only 15 seconds…but at this point, it’s better than nothing. Series 8 marks the first season for lifelong Whovian Peter Capaldi, who took over Matt Smith’s role in the 2013 Christmas special. Based on his boyish excitement over the role and his previous roles, it’s safe to assume — Capaldi is going to hit it out of the park this fall.
So you’ve never read the series (A Song of Ice and Fire), but you love Game of Thrones
…yet no matter how thorough, the show creators can’t give you all the details of that rich background George R.R. Martin has created. It just can’t happen in 10 episodes at an hour long each. Which is something of a shame because there’s a lot of really fascinating subplots which occur in the book that, naturally, don’t make the cut to adaptation. Sometimes that’ll leave you with questions, and sometimes it leaves you entirely ignorant of pretty cool extraneous info.
Prime example? The Wildlings. There’s plenty which is hinted at and revealed about the self-titled “Free People” during Jon Snow’s time with them in season 3, and so far in Season 4, we’ve even met with those freaky cannibalistic Thenns. But did you know the Thenns aren’t actually Wildlings? Or they are to people South of The Wall, but they don’t identify with The Free People. Sound confusing? Check out our youtube rec of the week from Emergency Awesome! This guy does a phenomenal job breaking down the complex nature of society North of The Wall and filling viewers in on all those tidbits which just weren’t relevant to the Game of Thrones narrative.
Anyone else catch her on Jimmy Fallon tonight? No? That’s cool, we’ve got the best part for you right here.
Jennifer Lawrence plays “Box of Lies” with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show (5/15). Fallon and Lawrence each have to describe the random objects inside mystery boxes — then the other person has to guess whether they’re lying or not. What happens next? Well. It’s just magical.

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.
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.
