So, since I wrote an Art Attack post last week, this is a huuuuge collection of all the exciting things that have happened in the geekosphere. Two weeks of cool stories, Tumblr posts, and videos!  Some highlights: Jeff Goldblum’s weird laugh from Jurassic Park was made into a song, different uses for comic-con buttons, a Michonne Barbie doll, and Grumpy Cat sat on the Iron Throne. I know you’re excited. Okay, let’s get to it.
