Because, Sure, Why Not?: Giant Pac-Man Sculpture Made of Cans

By Great White Snark | January 28, 2011

From What the Cool, about this Pac-Man sculpture made out of cans:

There’s an annual event called the Can-struction.  It’s a great charity in the form of a can sculpture stacking event where people compete and thousands of people are fed.

Sure. Sometimes thousands of destitute people are fed at the event. And then other times, thousands of cans of food go into sculptures of cartoon smiley-faces gorging themselves on pellets and frightened can-ghosts.

But I’m sure the starving people respect the importance of the art. Sometimes cans of food have a higher calling, you know?

Don’t Play Angry!: Star Wars “Imperial March” on Dueling Pianos [Video]

By Great White Snark | January 28, 2011

Below, you can read the exchange that led to this delightful rendition of “The Imperial March” on dueling pianos by the duo of Greg Anderson and Liz Roe.

Anderson: We need to get more exposure for our act. We should make a viral video.

Roe: Yeah, but we play the piano. No one cares about pianos. I mean, sure, we play our pianos rather vehemently, but… still.

Anderson: What if we played a Star Wars song? The internet gobbles up that kind of sh*t.

Roe: Good point. I’m sure if we post a YouTube video of our playing “The Imperial March,” some hapless geek blogger will immediately post it, for fear of someone else posting it first. The rules of blogging can only work in our favor.

Anderson: Indeed. And then some kid on Tumblr will pick it up, and–because it’s something quirky having to do with Star Wars–it’ll get reposted and reposted like some kind of virtual circle-jerk. We just have to sit back and enjoy the publicity.

Roe: Does everyone know about this formula? ‘Cause it seems like more people would be doing it, if it were so obvious.

Anderson: Five words for you: George Lucas lives for royalties.

Roe: Oh, right. Well. He’d never come after a couple of innocent-faced kids like us, would he?

Cooler Than You Are: Kid’s Dark Helmet Costume [Cosplay]

By Great White Snark | January 27, 2011

Say what you will about America’s youth, but I haven’t given up hope.

Yet.

Kids Dark Helmet Costume

I love that this kid dressed as Dark Helmet from Spaceballs at Star Wars Celebration IV is doing “tongue-in-cheek tribute” before he even knows what “tongue-in-cheek” means.

Via Reddit, who bets he doesn’t know what “pocket pool” means, either. Because that’s just how Reddit’s mind works.

Let’s Call It What It Is: The Awesome Cake [Geeky Cake]

By Great White Snark | January 27, 2011

You know I’m not prone to vociferous adoration characterized by the OMG LULZ LOVE IT WANT! noise that plagues our internet tubules, so you know that when I call this cake, “Awesome,” it’s because that’s what cake artisan Barbara Garrard damn well named it.

Awesome Cake

Because “awesome” is apparently what you find at the intersection of zombies, unicorns, robots, rainbows, and piranha plants from Super Mario Bros.

Via Super Punch, who knows that “bawl-some” is what you find at the intersection of rainbows and dead unicorns.

Or Maybe a NASCAR Fan?: Back to the Future Tattoo [Geeky Tattoo]

By Great White Snark | January 27, 2011

Well, I presume this “88 MPH” tattoo means that this gentleman is a fan of Back to the Future.

But of course I imagine it could also be the speed his daddy was going when he hit the wall at Daytona. From what I’ve heard, rednecks like to memorialize these things with tattoos. And beer. Lots of beer.
