The Daily Nerdgasm: My Kind Of Fillibuster

podisneysw
Patton Oswalt‘s appearance on this past Thursday’s PARKS & RECREATION featured oswalt doing a fully improvised fillibuster of the Pawnee City Council using his fan-fiction of what the upcoming Disney version of STAR WARS should be like in a screed of geekily epic proportions. I have to ding him for calling the X-men’s plane a Quinjet though.

The Japanese Avengers Trailer Is Way Better Than Ours

More action shots! More character building shots! More of that cool ass mofo Samuel L. Jackson! More Hawkeye! OMG! Its Pepper Potts! More of those mystery aliens (director Joss Whedon says its not the Skrulls or Kree but another Marvel U alien race; I think it may be the Badoon)! And the motherfreakin’ S.H.I.E.L.D Heli-Carrier!!!!!!

Plus that Japanese voice-over guy is all sorts of awesome

Cover Me Monday: Iron Man

The Cardigans
The Cardigans‘ cover of Black Sabbath‘s “Iron Man” is another example of what I truly love about cover songs…when the artist doing the covering transforms the song to the point that it is not even recognizable or has been changed around to fit an entirely different musical genre. In the case of this version of “Iron Man” The Cardigans do their very best Portishead impression to make the dark rock anthem something a bit less heavy and foreboding but still cool.
