Oh sweet baby turret in a manger! Words cannot express the rush of delight I experienced while watching this Portal 2 and The Nightmare Before Christmas Mashup “This is Aperture” remix of “This is Halloween”.
YouTuber Harry Callaghan created this nerdgasm for us. The video quality is great, not to mention the hilarious lyrics and appearances by our favorite turrets, Wheatley, GladOS and more!
I’d support a Kickstarter to make this into a movie. Internet make it happen already!

After constantly coming across Portal jewelry on the internet, I took it as a sign from the all mighty Blog God that I should gather the best (and practically all) Portal video game jewelry out there. And by “out there” I mean on Etsy, ’cause I love Etsy.
This is where I should probably go on about how utterly amazing Portal is, but you already know that. If you don’t know, and haven’t played Portal before well then I urge you to take a long hard look at the choices you’ve made in your life.
PS- Gamer girls, you’re welcome.

Ten and Wheatley
Two of my favorite things at the moment (and in life) are Doctor Who and the video game Portal 2. Well geeks, dreams do come true! Tennant and Wheatley are the perfect mashup and it isn’t just because of their accents. Looking at this piece makes my imagination run wild, I can really see a DW episode taking place in Aperture Science. What a splendid episode that would be! Definitely a two-parter and then… oh there goes my imagination again, let me reign it back in.
The brilliant Rose Fox (yes I already asked her if her last name was really Tyler, she “claims” it isn’t) created ‘Ten and Wheatley’ and she makes a lot of other fan art from Supernatural, Good Omens and more which is featured in the gallery below. Check out the interview I had with her and read about where she got the idea for this weeks Picture of the Week, her favorite Doctor, artist and other geeky goodies. Also, Rose answers the most important question: cake or lemons? Continue reading →
It all makes sense now…

Gamer guys and gals don’t want flowers and chocolate for Valentine’s Day. We want you to preorder Portal 2 for us! *hint hint*
Valve released this “Romance Safety Compliance Guide” on behalf of Aperture Laboratories (because they are all about safety). The video tells us the way to win our valentine’s heart is to preorder Portal 2 . I recommend you take their advice since they highlighted the alarming statistic that 4/5 women get crushed to death by giant diamonds everyday. It’s got to be true! Aperture wouldn’t dare lie to us… Right?
The release date for Portal 2 is April 19th.
Preorder Portal 2 here!
Unless you’ve been out in the woods hiding from He Who Shall Not Be Named, Deathly Hallows came out Thursday at midnight. Of course this little muggle *points to self* was in line with all her Potter pals an hour and a half early which apparently was “late” by the size of the line. It was a blast to be in a theater where every single person was there to watch Harry Potter since every theater was playing Harry Potter at 12:01am. I don’t have the time to write a full review for Deathly Hallows Part 1 (because I’m a full-time grad student) BUT I absolutely loved it! I wasn’t a fan of the last film, but I thoroughly enjoyed DH, it was funny, intense, emotional (yes I cried and I’m sure you did/will too!). They did a great job keeping me immersed in the film especially since it would have been very easy to get boring with the “hiding out and finding horcruxes” chunk of the book. I’m not sure what I will do with my life after DH2… but anyways before I fall into severe depression here’s a Sunday Funny brought to you by Dueling Analogs.
I think this is how my brother felt when I was playing Portal and talking with him on Skype.
