Hey guys! I was actually able to get the time to make this post(two weeks in a row, what is this madness?), so here’s another week of awesomeness, including some geek inspired tattoos, the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, and info about Disney’s new princess film. Enjoy! (all images from sources)
- Your First Look at Into the Woods via Fashionably Geek
I’ve only seen parts of the original musical, but this version looks amazing. And, um yeah, Johnny Depp. And Anna Kendrick.
I don’t know about you, but reading trends fascinate me. First, it was vampires and paranormal. Now, it’s post-apocalyptic worlds. But why? Read some authors thoughts on why they chose the end of the world.
- A Father & His Kids Build Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet Out of Legos via Laughing Squid
This is too cute. 🙂
- GeekGirlCon is an oasis of acceptance via Boing Boing
As we all know, cons aren’t always the safest places to be, so it’s nice to read about a positive experience at one.
- An Illustrated Birthday Tribute to Mary Blair via Comics Alliance
So, if you’re a Disney fan and haven’t heard of Mary Blair, here’s your chance to read up. She was an important figure in the making of what Disney is today.
- Chatting with Jen Wang, In Real Life via Geek Mom
I reallly want In Real Life; the story sounds awesome, the art is beautiful and GRAPHIC NOVELS. Here’s an interview with the artist, and she sounds like a cool lady.

It’s a TARDIS mini fridge! That you can keep drinks in! You know you want it.

- 7 Reasons Why Brandon Sanderson’s Female Characters Are Amazing via Paper Droids
I haven’t read anything by Sanderson(yet), but I can’t wait until I finally get to Mistborn, and this list just makes me want to read his books even more.

Space is the place.
This is actually a question I’ve wondered about for awhile. It’s always nice when science explains the little things like this.
This has been around for awhile, but it’s too bad ass not to include. Sailor Moon is the Cleric, Sailor Mars is the Ranger, Sailor Mercury is the Mage, Sailor Jupiter is the Warrior, and Sailor Venus is the Rogue. (art by Sasha Mutch)
- The Beast of Gevaudan via Stuff You Missed in History Class
I’ve been on a podcast kick lately, and if you like history and it’s odd little stories, definitely check this out. This past week’s story, however, isn’t for the faint of heart. O.o
- First Evidence of Extrasolar Planets Found in 1917 via The Physics arXiv Blog
History and astronomy? Yes please.
- All of our favorite 90s YA series, ranked via HelloGiggles
I know a bunch of Iggles were pre-teens/teens in the 90s, so flashback post! Also, the 90s were awesome.
- Confessions of a World of Warcraft Noob #1 via Comics and Cookies
World of Warcraft…I remember when this was the thing for pre-teen boys in middle school. It’s a super fun game, and Ari’s first post about it is super cute. (WoW is fun, too).
- Gamora GotG Makeup Tutorial via From Head to Toe
With this makeup and costume, you would be the best dressed at your Halloween costume party.
They finally released a new video! It’s not as cute, but still, Marcel.
- The Most Epic Safety Video Ever via Air New Zealand
If New Zealand were actually like this….this is seriously one of the best videos made. Safety first, kids!
OMG IT’S HERE IT’S HERE. What did you guys think?
One word: space cat. Technically that’s two words, but you get the point.
I’ve loved Katara since I first watched A:TLA as a young kid, so this tote bag is totally worth buying.
Mugs are always important, and this one is adorable! You can also get customized text on the back.
- Epic Beards Hobbit T-shirt via Think Geek
There aren’t many LOTR/Hobbit shirts out there, so you kind of have to dig, but this one is perfect.
Meanwhile, On Tumblr…
- Translated TV Show Titles via James Chapman
Chapman, an artist, has been translating different tv show titles and it’s great. In Poland, the Powerpuff Girls are the Atomic Girls, and in Hungary, Doctor Who is called Who Are You, Doc? There are more translations on the link.
Awwww, Daryl & Carol are such a cute duo, even if there isn’t any romance. (Admit it, their moment in the season premiere was the best part).
- Ms. Marvel via quirkiness required
And it begins.
That’s it! Stay tuned for more of the best parts of geek culture.
