OMG Awesomeness!: WonderWoman Custom Painted Bra

I think my head just exploded when I happened upon SceeneShoes Etsy shop.   I’ve never been one for outrageous lingerie, but I think I just found something I need!  And I must admit it would be a wonderful companion to my shoes!

The WonderWoman bra is just one of many wonderfully nerdy custom painted undergarments and shoes the artist has available – including R2D2 and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!  Now, I wonder if she’ll do a custom Slave Girl Leia version . . .

OMG Awesomeness!: 2 Game of Thrones-inspired Tees for Sale Today

I know it’s not Tuesday, but I had to give a shout out about these shirts.  If you are a fan of Game of Thrones and you happen to also like pop culture inspired tees like myself, you may want to grab your wallet.  Both Shirt.woot and Teefury have Game of Thrones inspired shirts up for sale today.  Shirt.woot’s Iron or Gold is a bit subtle in its reference, but quite cool nonetheless.

Iron or Gold

Teefury’s Game of Thrones tee, Black Stag Stout, is just as fun especially if you are a fan of the ale and makes a fitting companion to the Direwolf Winter Lager shirt they sold back in September 2011.

Obviously my husband & I are fans of the beer and Game of Thrones tees. Check out the selection of homebrew we had for the Season 2 premiere:

Game of Thrones brews on tap!

If you have the least bit of interest in either of these awesome Game of Thrones shirts, I advise you not to hesitate as they are usually pretty limited with Black Stag Stout being for sale today only.  Iron or Gold will likely be available for a week (if not more) though at a higher price – so buy today or pay the higher gold price later!

OMG Awesomeness! : De-Pixelated – Operation Raccoon City

Looks like a typical high school to me

A couple of weeks ago I, along with the rest of the Blue Goggles family, spent 24 hours during the span of a weekend, shooting what would become the first episode in the new show De-Pixelated on GameTrailers.com.  As with all Blue Goggles productions, the shoot was tons of fun even when sleep was at a deficit.  Filming in a school overnight with about a dozen or so zombie extras?  Yes, please!  So glad the film is now out there for the world to see.

If you like the Resident Evil franchise or if you just like some good old zombie survival horror, then you should check this out. Even if you don’t, you should watch it to see what can be made with a rather small budget and a lot of hard work by people who are passionate about what they are doing.

OMG Awesomeness!: Henri – A Cat Video by Way of Sartre

I’m sure some of you have heard about this already, but I thought it was worth posting for those who hadn’t because it’s a gem.  After so many years on the Internet, there are only so many videos of adorable kittens and cats jumping in and out of boxes one can take.

OK, admittedly I can take a whole lot of those, but this made me laugh so hard that I had to watch it a couple of times.  And that usually doesn’t happen.

It’s the cat video I wished I had made.  If Cannes had a category for cat films, this would win in it.  I don’t know whether to LOL or just question my own existence.  I just love it.  Check out the sequel below for more feline ennui.

OMG Awesomeness! : The Professor – Live Doctor Who Inspired Improv

If you live in Austin, TX  like I do, there are dozens of interesting things to do each weekend.  Of course, there is the well known music scene, but there is also a thriving improv scene here that deserves your attention.  Just within the past year I have seen improvised shows inspired by Miyazaki, Steampunk, and Doctor Who.  I never knew improv could be like this, especially since most of my experience with it was in high school drama class or “Who’s Line is it Anyway?”

The Professor: Improv Inspired by Doctor Who starts with the show’s director, Justin Davis, soliciting a couple of words from the audience in typical improv fashion.  Using those words as a starting point, the cast completely improvises the evening’s show.  It can and will go anywhere from here.  But surprisingly, out of it all comes something that is indeed inspired by (in theme and structure) a typical Doctor Who episode, including the occasional regeneration (!).  Simple staging and the small theater really allow the audience to focus on the actors and their antics on stage which should be the whole point of improv.

The night I attended, there was an amorous alien, Anubis, and his hellhounds trying their best to end the world as we know it.  Of course, thanks to the quick thinking of the Professor (Mike Ferstenfeld) and his companion, Clara (Emily Breedlove) this fate was averted.  This season of The Professor includes 3 different Professors, as well as a number of different companions.  Tonight’s episode is rumored to be a regeneration episode, so get thee to the theater to check it out.  Apparently the new Professor will be a she!  Not even the BBC has been brave enough to do that (yet).

Needless to say if you love Doctor Who, enjoy the creativity that improv allows and live near Austin, you should definitely check out The Professor during its run Fridays and Saturdays through April 21 at the Salvage Vanguard Theater.

If you don’t, the Daleks and Cybermen win.
