These samples of fan made awesome began appearing on the blog-o-nets in December 2011. We kept the links in cold storage until we could better parse them through this site. Now TV internet is abuzz with COMMUNITY’s return to television.

March 15th on Thursday nights.

We feel now’s the time to share these fan images made by Deviant artist, Kinjamin. Just follow this here Community link to learn the method behind his character cosplaying madness.

Music Break: Game of Thrones Theme on Violin and Piano

YouTuber Lara6683 took a request to play the GAME OF THRONES theme song on her channel. We have an unabashed love for the Game of Thrones series and books. So if there’s a fan made cover out there we’d be hard-pressed not to post it.

If we have the timing down we will be playing Game of Thrones drinking games by the time this posts.

Tumblr Watch: Dwain Smith’s Googly Eyes X-Men Comic Covers Makes Mutant Angst Fun Again

What is it: File this under: yet another simple idea so awesome that we should have thought of it first. Dwain Smith‘s pasting of googly eyes on X-Men covers is nerd comedy we can get behind. We don’t understand why but the more serious the X-Men cover, the better the eye googlies makes it. He’ll never run out of usable material from the Dork Age.

Moment of Who vs. Today in Star Wars: Dr Who/Star Wars Prequels Video Mashup is Here! Nerds Head Asplode.

Rick Kelvington has an all possessing love of Dr Who. That’s the only explanation for the insane mashups going on over at his YouTube channel. This prequel mashup is actually a sequel to the original mashup that debuted last year. How the hell we missed  that one for an entire year is beyond us. It’s good to be surprised. It means we are seeing daylight once in a bit.

Any Who…ahem… Mr Kelvington we salute the time and effort put into making this bit of awesome. Seeing Tom Baker and David Tennant together on the same screen was extra helpings of win all on their own.

Webcomics Love: Zac Gorman’s “I Draw Nintendo” makes Link a Badass in 4 Panels

Why We Read It: Technically we just found it. Obviously we love what we see.

I wanted to draw at least one comic where Link looked like a badass.

We believe you succeeded, Mr Gorman.

Zac Gorman‘s simple style, love of Nintendo and motion comics mastery mix together to create lovely art. Check below the jump for two more examples of his style. Special note: our favorite is the one on bravery.

Waves from the ‘Verse: River Tam and the Fireflies for Sale on Etsy,

She can kill you with her songs. Also, her mind.

Our attention to this was captured by the TeeFury newsletter in our email last week. The shirt is currently not buyable.

The prints, however, are!

If you mosey on over to Joebot’s Etsy you may be able to buy one of the few left.

(Or you can buy one for us. Our wall is cold and lacks the proper amount of Firefly love.)

The Sunday Punch: Batman. In Power Armor. Riding a Segway.

Here’s a curious find from Starshipmodeler. We’re willing to bet it is the most unique take on a Batmobile outside of the comics.

The CoMMiES had a contest recently: to build a Batmobile out of something that wasn’t already a Batmobile. This is my entry. It is a modified SF3D Super Armored Fighting Suit, from the original Nitto 1:20 scale issue. I love SF3D and Ma.K, but this is the first from this series that I’ve actually finished.
[…]
That was it for my initial idea, but then I thought, ”You know, that’s just a funny take on Batman. But it’s no Batmobile.” So as I was building the suit, I started scratchbuilding something for him to ride. That’s right, a Bat Segway.

Moment of Who: Man Builds TARDIS in Backyard, Slightly Bigger on Inside

This is my scratchbuild TARDIS. It is approximately 142 cm wide (56″) and 215 cm (7ft) high. Taking almost a month, on and off, with supplies from the local hardware store, this huge construction used mostly: 6″ x 4″, 6″ x 2″ and 2″ x 1″ wood, with the plastic and creative thinking for the windows. The roof has a slight lean, to allow water to drip away. The whole shed is covered in 2 coats for protective fence paint, the roof having 2 coats of extra varnish as well. The light also works at the top, but only a night; it was a garden solar light that has been screwed to the roof. As the photos show, it really is bigger in the inside (due to the dropped base).

Best. Storage shed. Ever.

Check out more photos of Martin Shepherd’s TARDIS on his Starship Modeler page.
