Chad & Angie from ScreenTeamShow – a YouTube channel dedicated to geeky vlogs and songs –  have parodied many of pop culture’s musical hits. Today, however, they have outdone themselves.

The hottest song and most persistent ear worm on the radio waves is, without question, Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk“. I mean be honestly, how much of your brains energy has been devoted to putting “Uptown Funk” on a constant loop over the last few months? Just when you thought you couldn’t be tortured by it anymore, the duo from ScreenTeamShow do what they do best and have applied the toe-tapping  jam to Marvel’s latest Blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Ultron’s got the Uptown Funk and his evil plan is to give it to you.  (more…)

Get Your Swag On With Power-Up Box!

PowerUp

You’ve heard of LootCrate and NerdBlock. Now a new challenger enters the monthly subscriptions gift game.

With Power-Up Box you’ll get a box of cool gifts mailed to your house every month! Currently partnered with Marvel, Nintendo, DC, Disney, Capcom, and Star Wars, it’s basically guaranteed you’re gonna get something you’ll love. Each package contains a limited-edition T-shirt and a selection of 4-9 nerd-themed toys (depending on your box type), sent out around the 15th of every month and shipped all around the world. And, if you sign up and hate the packages, you can cancel at any time.

You wont hate it though. Not unless you’re a curmudgeon who doesn’t like receiving packages in the mail. I mean, who doesn’t like coming home to find a mystery box on their door step, to which you immediately reenact Brad Pit’s scene from Se7en – “What’s in the box… what’s in the box?!”?  (more…)

ABOVE: To be totally honest, I’ve needed a break from seeing Harley cosplays. They’re everywhere, which makes sense, because she’s awesome. But then I saw this mashup (by Scarlett Quinn) and now I want to see cosplays of Harley mashed into every single universe in Nerdom. [GeeksxGirls] (more…)
