    This is the battle on Fhloston Paradise from 'The Fifth Element' recreated in LEGO by builder Matt De Lonoy. The Fifth Element -- now that was a good movie. And not just because an orange-haired Milla Jovovich was running around in less medical bandages than you'd find in a f... / Continue →

    This is a short video of Neil DeGrasse Tyson cutting a rug at some party to Michael Jackson's 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough'. He's a surprisingly good dancer. Don't get me wrong, I'd still destroy him in a dance-off, but it wouldn't be my easiest win (and may require a pock... / Continue →

    This is a video of a playable record made entirely out of ice. It was created for the Shout Out Loud's new single, 'Blue Ice'. You know, so it's an appropriate medium. Spaghetti? Spaghetti would probably make a terrible record even if your new single was called 'Meatballs &... / Continue →

    This is the leather belt lovingly crafted by leatherworker Julia for her brother's birthday. It features the last level of Super Mario Bros. painstakingly pressed out and painted. That's a belt I would be proud to wear. Now hear me out: let's say I was bad and deserved a spa... / Continue →

    Ahahahaha, that's how I stare too! This is the spaceship bunk bed built by a loving father for his five-year old son, Finn. The command center with all the buttons and switches is actually an old video switcher from a local TV station that Finn's dad's buddy pulled out of the... / Continue →

    This is an $800 Batman chess set from The Noble Collection. That's a lot of money to spend on a game you're not even good at. But it does light up and project a Bat-Signal onto the ceiling, so, you know, totally worth it. I'LL GIVE YOU $1,200 -- FINAL OFFER. A press of the ... / Continue →

    It already has a ton of views so I'm not going to spend too much time talking about it, but this is a video of a cat that jumps scared every time it hears the Mario jump soundbite from the original game. To the cat's credit though, its owner has the speakers cranked up to 11, ... / Continue →

    This is a giant Bowser LEGO mech built by cool dude Zane Houston. I'm not gonna lie, if Bowser used this thing to kidnap the princess I'd probably just let her go and start banging Toad instead. Years of battling Mario and Luigi has taken its toll on Bowser; to compensate he ... / Continue →
