Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode will be simulcast worldwide!

Image
Alright Doctor Who fans, it looks like the Doctor Who 50thAnniversary will be setting another record for the show! For the first time in the show's history, the show will be simulcast worldwide! So far the show has been picked up by 200 countries and they will all get to watch the 50th Anniversary at the same time at 8pm GMT on Saturday, November 23rd. This works out to be 3pm EST for viewers in the USA. This turns out to be great news as there will be no spoilers floating around to ruin the anniversary special for fans.

How do you feel about the special being simulcast worldwide? This is definitely great news but I personally am not excited about the 3pm EST show time for my region. But that is only because I have to be home now in the middle of a Saturday afternoon to watch it. Other than that it is great news and fans won't have to worry about spoilers.

Spider-Man art shows Spidey web slinging through the streets of Manhattan!

Image
Nothing is better for clearing your head than web slinging through the streets of Manhattan. Or at least that is what Spider-Man would tell you. Deviant Artist "Pertheseus" has created this fantastic piece of art that shows just that. The piece features Spider-Man web slinging right at the "camera" through the streets of Manhattan. This particular Spider-Man seems to be Ultimate Spider-Man and the piece itself is perfect. I love the slightly blurred foot that is directly in front of the viewer and the color blending to create shadow looks great. Well done!!

Nothing to Prove - A Geek Girl's Anthem. [video]

Girls have always had to fight for the recognition as a "true geek" as though there was an actual definition of the term. Well this great music video by The Doubleclicks takes a look at some true female geeks and celebrates their geekdom with an inspiring song.

Girls, and also guys for that matter, should never have to prove that they are a geek. Geeks, in whatever fandom, should be able to turn to each other and find a place of comfort. Never should they be questioned.

Take a look at this video and watch as female geeks that are into comics, gaming, sci-fi, fantasy and so much more reveal who they are in some amazing self written signs. These girls certainly have "Nothing to Prove".
