Lucas the Spider Is Sweet Enough To Wash Out The Soapy Aftertaste

Originally, we felt like giving this too-sweet-for-our-glucose-level animated short a pass, but after writing about the ewwww-worthy post about soap tasting, I think Lucas the Spider animation sounds like the sweet treat we need to balance out the soapy after taste (even though we have never tasted soap). If you are unaware, Lucas the Spider is an adorable animated character created by animator Josh Slice, named after and voiced by Slice’s nephew.

LEGO Built An Actual Coffee Shop With LEGO Bricks In London

Earlier today, London was abuzz with The LEGO Movie 2 promotion with the aid of an unlikely structure: a pop-up coffee shop that was made from real LEGO elements. The pop-up cafe called The Coffee Chain, which was inspired by the cafe in the movie, will be be at London’s Observation Point in South Bank for two days. But for some folks, the real draw ain’t the LEGO brick cafe, or the LEGO cupcakes; it was The LEGO Movie 2 voice actors, Chris Pratt and Tiffany Haddish who are behind the voice of Emmet and Queen Whatevra Wa’Nabi, respectively.

Witches And Wizards In Harry Potter Used To Poop Standing And Use Magic To Clean Up Afterwards

If you have watched Harry Potter’s movies, you would have know that Hogwarts did indeed have bathrooms. However, it turns out, the school of witchcraft and wizardry used to NOT have bathrooms, revealed Pottermore in a recent Tweet. So, if there weren’t any bathroom, how did Harry Potter’s forebears pissed and pooped? Well, they just did their businesses wherever they stood and then wield their magic to make the human excretion disappears. Don’t ask where the “evidence” went. It had to go somewhere somehow, but I really don’t want to know. Continue reading Witches And Wizards In Harry Potter Used To Poop Standing And Use Magic To Clean Up Afterwards

Oops: Sydney’s Dazzling New Year Fireworks Marred By The Wrong Year

Being of the first cities in the world to usher in the New Year, the city of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia, never fail to celebrate this occasion with some visually spectacular pyrotechnics. This year is no different. In fact, this year, Sydney’s dark skyline was lit by a record amount of fireworks – some $5.8 million worth and 500 kilograms (1,102 lbs) more explosives over the previous – that lasted for a whole 12 minutes, and boy, was it a sight to behold.

Reboot Hellboy Trailer Hinted Gore-fest, But…

This is it, folks. The trailer for the Hellboy reboot is finally here. The R-rated reboot Hellboy’s first trailer posted by Lionsgate today hinted a gore-fest (but probably not the gore-fest you thought it would be… just saying), but honestly, the trailer is kind of meh. Continue reading Reboot Hellboy Trailer Hinted Gore-fest, But…

The star hero here is Sun Wukong, otherwise known as Monkey King, and the story is an adaption, or more correctly put, loosely based on the 16th century Chinese classic literary work, Journey to the West.

The Entire Neon Genesis Evangelion Series Will Be On Netflix

Do you need Japan’s cult mecha v. aliens series from the 90s, Neon Genesis Evangelion, on Netflix? I am guessing maybe not. I mean, those who wants to watch it, would have watched it, and those who wanted it badly, already own the series and movies on DVD/Blu-Ray. Notwithstanding our believe that the world does not need Neon Genesis Evangelion to be available to stream, Netflix is adding all 26 episodes of the Neon Genesis Evangelion, along with the two movies, The End of Evangelion and Evangelion: Death (True)2 to its library come this Spring 2019. Continue reading The Entire Neon Genesis Evangelion Series Will Be On Netflix

I Can’t Believe There Is A Simulator That Lets You Take On The Role Of A Thief

Since after 2000, simulation video games have moved past traditional domains like airplanes, boats, cars, and population management. There are all sort of simulators today, ranging from training to be a doctor to flipping houses to putting yourself in the cloven hoofs of a goat that basically go around head butting unsuspecting people and spoiling backyard parties.

Pikachu Talk Skill For Alexa And New Pokémon Plushies Introduced

Since we are the topic of Pokémon, we thought you may like know a couple of new developments. The first is Pokémon Pikachu Talk Skill for Amazon Alexa and Google Home where you can “converse ‘live’” with Pikachu. Instead of the usual Alexa or Google Home voice, whatever you ask or commands your Amazon Alexa or Google Home device will be reciprocated with Pikachu classic lines like “Pika?”, “Pika, Pika!”, and “Pikaaaa.” I guess you could say Pikachu Talk Skill for Alexa and Google Home is the closest experience you will get to having an actual Pokémon creature.

Check Out This Amazing Stop-Motion Animated Short Called Captain 3D

Here’s an amazing, award-winning animated short by director Victor Haegelin that you don’t want to miss. The story is about an unexpected superhero Captain 3D who sprung to life from the cover of his comic book. Everything to this superhero is a-OK until he put on his “super anaglyph glasses” (basically, 3D glasses). With the 3D glasses on, the world is an entirely different place. A place that calls for his heroic might to save a damsel in distress, well, albeit rather comically. Continue reading Check Out This Amazing Stop-Motion Animated Short Called Captain 3D
