Friday 5 collects links and videos spanning all of nerd culture – collating bits of news, fun, and other noteworthy offerings that you might have missed in the hustle and bustle of the week.
Nerd Culture Highlights for the Week of March 20, 2016
1. The Daredevil Theme Song a cappella.
Daredevil season 2 dropped on Netflix, which was grand in and of itself. But the grandest thing was a group that sang the theme song a cappella. They sang the song from their mouths. Their mouths!
It’s grand. Check it out.
In something I still can’t believe is real…seriously, is this real? Boy bands from the 90s are teaming up to battle zombies in an original SyFy movie. I mean, there is a trailer, but it’s possible we’re being trolled.
Conventional wisdom says that if you make a movie that is intentionally nostalgic, campy, and genre-mashed, then you might have a hit on your hands much like Sharknado. That’s some home-cooked conventional wisdom. Mmmm-mmmm. Just like mom used to make! Before we put her in a home because, seriously, you can’t cook conventional wisdom in the oven. Time will tell is you can cook up conventional wisdom in a SyFy channel board room.
Who doesn’t love a good quiz? And who isn’t curious about which Walking Dead character is there should mate?
Spoiler alert, I got Glenn, as did several others of the writers from Nerds on Earth. We’re quick and hide under dumpsters.
Click the link above and see which Walking Dead character you are.
With Batman v Superman in theaters now, Vulture has a cover story that explores the history of both heroes, including how they were viewed in culture and the times when their relationship came to fisticuffs.
It’s a long, but thorough and interesting read that’s good for any comic book lore nerd.
5. A Dungeons and Dragons cartoon over-dubbed as if it’s an actual D&D play session.
This is as hilarious and amazing as it sounds. Some guy took the old D&D cartoon and added voice overs so it watches like folks playing through an actual D&D session.
This is what everything on the internet should be. Give it a watch:
