ABOVE: That’s right, our President’s a Trekkie. Either that or this photo was taken at a secret White House meeting with the very first Vulcan ambassadors. And then of course, Obama calls in his top extra-terrestrial expert, Nichelle Nichols. (Laughing Squid)
Heh. What happens at the convention, stays at the convention, all right? (Geek Tyrant)
Speaking of Star Wars and gettin’ laid, these are easily the sexiest fuck-me shoes I’ve ever seen! Who could be denied rockin’ a pair of these? Created by Holly Grothues these custom-painted heels can be yours for $85 bucks. (Fashionably Geek)
MEEP! Beaker has joined the Empire! Maybe he’s hoping to finally earn the respect he deserves, or maybe it’s just another of Honeydew’s experiments and poor Beaker’s the victim once again. (Fashionably Geek)
Damn! No wonder the flick was so freakin’ expensive! Now everyone has to see John Carter, that’s an achievement in visual effects like none other. (Fashionably Geek)
I mean, yeah, we all love the Doctor and would trust him no matter what, but he can still be total dick from time to time. Gotta remember, he isn’t human so humanity can be kind of lost on him. (io9)
This could very well be one of those greatest things ever. It’s Doctor Who. It’s an old school RPG. It’s 16-bit. What’s not to love?!?! Oh, and, it’s hilarious. (College Humor)
All right, if you got too excited by the prospect of an old school, Doctor Who, 16-bit RPG you just need to calm down. Relax. Here, this Dalek can help you. I promise. (Nerd Approved)
I’m sure by now you’ve witnessed the horror that is Han Solo dancing in Kinect Star Wars Galatic Dance-Off. I know, once you see it that image will stick with you for life. Well, hopefully this wonderful and completely obligatory mashup will make things a littler easier. It’s the “Harrison Ford plays…” meme spliced with footage from the Han Solo dance off. (TDW: Geek)
Hmm, not sure those drivers got the joke. (Nerd Approved)
