Bender from Futurama voices Trixie from My Little Pony in this funny video!

Check out this great My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic video that features footage of the pony Trixie being voiced by Bender from the show Futurama. It is highly entertaining. A year ago at the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic convention  in Canterlot Gardens voice actors sat down for a reading and voice actor John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time) was there to help out. The footage comes from the episode “Boast Busters” and one dedicated fan put the audio from the reading together with the show footage. Enjoy!

New video game medley by Lindsey Stirling presented by IGN. [video]

IGN has shot a new video that features a violin medley from the talented Lindsey Stirling. In this medley Lindsey plays songs from Skyrim, Halo, Assassins’ Creed III, and The Legend of Zelda. Although IGN shows footage from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the songs played are the The Legend of Zelda theme and Gerudo Valley from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The medley is very well done and in true Lindsey Stirling fashion is played beautifully. It's cute how Lindsey smiles ever so slightly as she transitions into the new game which shows she enjoys playing these songs but no smile was bigger than when she started to play the The Legend of Zelda theme (2:25). Just thought I'd point that out as a big Zelda fan.

RC flyer shaped like a wizard flying on a broomstick! [video]

Otto Dieffenbach has built the coolest RC flyer that I have ever seen. Built to look like a wizard flying around on a broomstick this flyer looks like the real thing when it's soaring through the air. "I was asked to build a Man on a Broom for a British TV show so I started cutting Depron. He is a great flyer but a difficult build. I will be posting a build log in rcgroups.com." This is really cool!

Mario medley from the Harp Twins is beautifully done! [video]

The Harp Twins, Camille and Kennerly, have just released a new video featuring an original medly from the Super Mario Bros. franchise and it is fantastic. As usual with their videos, the Harp Twins shot this video on location and dressed up for the occasion. The arrangement features the songs "Rainbow Road" (from Mario Kart), "Dire Dire Docks" (from Super Mario 64), and the "Mario Theme". I love listening to their arrangements as they are always beautifully done. Watch, listen, and enjoy.

Fresh take on the Doctor Who intro features Peter Capaldi literally flying through time! [video]

YouTuber and Doctor Who fan "billydikaduk" has created a completely original intro for the new season of the show that will star Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. This intro is a completely fresh take which shows the TARDIS flying through the components of the Doctor's fob watch and it is incredibly well done. "The time vortex in my version is a metaphor for time travel - the Tardis is literally flying through time. The face at the end morphs 2 stills into 1 - to get the smile. PC's face is meant to look like a reflection (less obvious with the Youtube compression). All in all - I wanted to create something with no rules... as if this was a new show... but something which gave the viewer an hint about the premise. It's an idea, simple as that :) "

Two new photos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's lair!

Image
Take your first look at the all new lair of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Two new photos have surfaced from Jonathan Liebesman's upcoming film and I think they look amazing. There are a lot of great details in these shots like the style of lair they'll have (similar to the 90's films), the furniture made from Pizza Hut boxes, and the skateboard back rest for Donatello's computer setup! We'll have to wait and see what the movie itself is like but I love these photos and they excite me. Let me know what you think and what your favorite part is in the comments! (And check them out quick in case they have to be taken down!)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will hit theaters on August 8, 2014.

Teenage Mutant Koopa Troopas - A TMNT and Super Mario Bros. mash-up! [video]

Animator James Farr has just released a new video that is sure to get a lot of well deserved attention. Titled "Teenage Mutant Koopa Troopas" it is an amazing mash-up of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise and the Super Mario Bros. franchise. The video is a lot of fun to watch with crisp animation and references many elements and characters from both the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise as well as the Super Mario Bros. franchise. The main look of the video is modeled after the "Turtles in Time" game which is arguably the best out there.  "NEXT UP IN ANOTHER DIMENSION: The Teenage Mutant Koopa Troopas must face off against The Plunger in their quest to save the city's star reporter." Enjoy!

The Best There Is VS The Unstoppable - Wolverine attacks the Juggernaut!

Image
Here's another fantastic piece of art from Deviant Artist "Artist Abe" that features two fan favorites from X-Men. Artist Abe has titled this piece "The Best There Is VS The Unstoppable" and it shows a scene in which Wolverine is springing into an attack against the Juggernaut. I really like the style of this artist and I think the choice to blur Wolverine as he is falling into the attack was a nice choice. Let me know what you think of this piece and who will come out as the victor of the fight in the comments.

Artist creates cover art for three (more) Little Golden Video Game Books!

Image
Back in April, artist Joey Spiotto (aka: Joebot) created a set of three adorable art pieces that featured video games as Little Golden Books covers. Fans loved the set and now the artist has drawn up three new covers to add to the library! The new covers feature three popular games; Mass Effect, Half-Life, and Red Dead Redemption. As noted in April, I wouldn't mind seeing these books become a reality. Which would you want to see become real?

Ben Affleck speaks out about his Batman casting for the first time with Jimmy Fallon! [video]

For the first time since he was cast as the new Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Ben Affleck has spoken about the role. Affleck appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and, of course, the subject of his casting as well as the fan backlash to his casting was brought up. Affleck seemed quite positive about everything and was in good spirits cracking jokes throughout the interview. Funny enough, he was even warned by the studio that fan backlash is a normal thing and was told he may want to stay away from the internet for a few days. Affleck stated that he is a man and could take whatever fans had to say and the first comment he sees is truly funny. Watch and enjoy!

The talk about Batman starts at the 1:45 mark.

This art piece is a lot of fun and well drawn. What do you think?

Tinker Bell stows away on the TARDIS!

Image
Artist Karen Hallion has created a fantastic piece of Doctor Who fan art that features a Disney crossover. In the piece we see Tinker Bell from Peter Pan sitting within the light fixture of the Doctor's TARDIS from Doctor Who. We can also see that Tink has scratched a few things into the top of the TARDIS. Nothing wrong with a little graffiti right?  "Tink wanted to see the Universe, so she stowed away in the top on a strange blue box...." The artist is selling this piece as a 8 x 12 inch open edition signed Glossy print for $25 on her Etsy shop if you are interested in purchasing it.
