I know it’s a few years old, but I just stumbled upon the “J. R. R. Tolkien vs George R. R. Martin epic rap battle” and it is truly a gem (perhaps even an arkenstone?) among the many excellent epic rap battles that have been made. Go ahead and give...

Weird Musical Mashups

I just recently stumbled upon the weird and wonderful musical mashups by two Italian brothers call the Melodicka Bros. They do covers for famous songs and bands, but with a twist: they play the song way out of genre. So, for example, they have a cyberpunk/synthwave cover of Toto’s “Africa.”...

Comparison of Various Sci-Fi Ships

Take a look at this video showing size comparisons between some 80 different ships from various sci-fi series — mainly from movies, but also from games and books as well. I was actually surprised to see a few, such as White Base from Gundam, Götterdämmerung from Iron Sky, the Red...

Weird Al’s “We’re All Doomed!”

CNN host Jake Tapper called the first 2020 Presidential Debate “A hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.” And he wasn’t wrong. Personally, I could barely watch the debate, and had to take it in small doses just to get through the highlights. However, the ever-brilliant “Weird...
