Epic Rap Battles of History


Epic Rap Battles has done it again: pitted two icons against each other in a lyrical throw down that we never knew we wanted to see until we did.  This time around, the contestants were George R.R.

Adam Savage from Mythbusters is know for going all out at Halloween with his costumes and this year was not an exception.

In honor of the film’s 30th anniversary Savage had ample opportunity to show of his fantastic Proton pack from within the maker’s San Francisco man cave. (more…)

Always ready to answer the questions we’ve never thought to ask, Epic Rap Battles of History delivers head to head lyrical combat between fictions two greatest detectives. Sure, if it was a fist fight in an alley Batman would mercilessly pummel the substance abusing sleuth from 221B Baker Street. Since this is a battle of the minds (rhymes,) Sherlock just might school the Dark Knight.

Wait, no, never mind. Lloyd Ahlquist shows up as Robin. S#!ts on, son!

If you’re looking to lose long tracks of time might I suggest taking up a simple diversion.
