See Something Cool: A Real Wall-E

Currently, it is Geek Week on YouTube and several of our favorite channels are pulling out all the stops to strut their stuff. The folks from Tested featured Mike McMaster who creates real life robots. Him and his group previously worked on a functional R2-D2, but now they are building a robot that has tugged at all our heart-strings.

From its namesake Pixar film, a real life Wall-E rolls out of the screen and into our world. With a little elbow grease, Mike has captured the CGI robot by constructing something you can play with.

Steamroll past the jump to watch the video.

See Something Cool: PostHuman (NSFW)

Featuring a beautiful animation style set in an unknown future, this shorts captures the twisted action and sci-fi spywork that would make a wonderful series in about four and half minutes. Check it out but there is definitely explicit action and nudity so use caution.

This short from colliculiproductions reminded me of Heavy Metal in all the best ways. I definitely would love to see this get expanded into a full series.

Baby it’s cold outside…. So here is your album of the week!

Sssssoo freezzzing. I had to scrape ice off my front and back windshields… The closest I will get to a White Christmas in San Francisco though. Once I got myself inside, and my blood back to a normal temperature, I was in the mood for one of my favorite holiday albums of this century: A Very She & Him Christmas.

This album takes some of the most popular Holiday songs and gives them the indie treatment. Blues guitars and vintage sounds to really make these covers stand out. I enjoy Zooey’s voice and think she puts an interesting spin on many of my favorites. By far, the best track on this album is Baby it’s cold outside where they swap roles and do an amazingly enjoyable duet.

I loved M. Ward’s album this year and the collaboration between him and Zooey Deschanel is always amazing. Yeah I know, completely pathetic indie pop fan here. Yesterday they released a very cute ANIMATED video for their rendition of Baby it’s Cold Outside and I thought I would share. Enjoy with hot cocoa! Read More…

Wreck-It Ralph’s Vintage Commercials

The nostalgia of the upcoming Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph just oozes out of every frame. Now the viral marketing for the movie comes out with three commercials for the fictional “Litwak’s Arcade.” Ahh, remember when arcades were everywhere with brand new games?

Hit the jump to watch all three videos.
