Grandpa Batman Converts Scooter to Batmobile

This 74-year-old grandfather converted his mobile scooter into the Batmobile! Brian Vann rides around his neighborhood in a Batman costume, much to everyone’s delight. The “Batmobile” goes a whopping 8 mph.

Why would he do such a thing? He sums it up nicely in a single sentence:

“I like to be doing something that makes people smile.” Way to go, Batman!

I Know You Are, But What Am I?

What a great photo! Pee Wee Herman and his father pal Regis Philbin are out causing trouble on the streets of New York.

I think this was taken last year, when Pee Wee appeared on Regis’ show. Some pictures really do say a thousand words, don’t they?

Improv Everywhere Goes Horse Racing

Here’s the latest funny video by Improv Everywhere. This time they go to the racetrack.

With a jockey costume, and “gamblers” in their suits, they turned that merry-go-round into very exciting horse race. Ha, silly fun. Thanks, IE!

Street Fighter: Darth Vader Edition

Are you a fan of Street Fighter? Here’s a rather humorous match up between Darth Vader and Ryu.

LOL, this is actually quite well done. I love how you can see the people dressed in black, helping out with “special effects.” Better than CGI, if you ask me.

Scene from Cancelled Wonder Woman Pilot

Yesterday, this scene from the failed Wonder Woman pilot was leaked, but it was taken down before I could post it.

Looks like it has resurfaced, but for how long is anyone’s guess. So watch it while you can!

Adrianne Palicki is wearing the classic Wonder Woman costume, and she’s kicking butt. But I must say the villains are quite comical and the writing seems quite bad. Sigh, oh well. I still want to see this pilot.

Cocktail Dress, Literally

This has to be the strangest dress I’ve ever seen! Called the DareDroid, it’s an electronic dress that can make drinks, bringing a whole new meaning to the concept of cocktail dress.

But it doesn’t just make drinks… you have to play a game of Truth or Dare first. From what I understand, the drink you get depends on the quality of your answer. Heh, so odd.

Definitely looks like something Lady Gaga would wear.

The DareDroid is a biomechanic cocktail making dress that uses medical technology, customised hardware and human temperament to provide you with a freshly made cocktail.

The dress is created by The Modern Nomads (MoNo). The team consists of Anouk Wipprecht, a Dutch fashiontech designer that uses electronics in her designs.

Alias Costume Party in Trinidad

I stumbled onto these cool cosplay montages, promoting a big costume party. Alias is an annual event at the Larry Gomes Stadium on the island of Trinidad. That would be so amazing!

First Look at The Hobbit!

It’s Bilbo! EW has a few photos from the set of The Hobbit, currently filming in New Zealand. Martin Freeman is such a great casting choice, he makes a great hobbit.

We have over a year to wait until Part One comes out. If you want the inside scoop straight from Peter Jackson himself, you can pick up the latest copy of Entertainment Weekly, which hits shelves tomorrow.
