One of my favorite things is to see bloopers from the shows I love.  Speaking of bloopers from one of the shows I love, to hype the release of season 7 of Star Trek: The Next Generation on blu-ray which comes out on December 2nd, this short but hilarious blooper clip has been released and I thought you guys would enjoy it as much as I do.

I always enjoy hearing versions of video game music that has a different style than the original but is still identifiable.  Being a metalhead, that usually takes the form of like a metal version of the Super Mario Bros music or something, but in today’s case, it is an acoustic version of the Halo theme music.

This awesome acoustic version of the Halo theme music was created by The Warp Zone.  I’d say they do a pretty epic job!  I have to admit, the whole straight-out-of-the-cornfield look is a bit distracting although I kind of like it.

They say the video is “Giving Master Chief the bad-ass Clint Eastwood cover he deserves.”

So here it is, the Halo Theme Unplugged!

Whoever combines these katana wielding robots with some real artificial intelligence will be the person who should be blamed for the rise of the robots and the death of humanity.

These cool precision katana fighting robots were created by a company called ABB which apparently makes industrial robots.

If we are going to have any hope, we are going to need to get medieval and practice our sword skills.  Time to make friends with your local blacksmith!

Pass this along so others know that they should be brushing up on their sword skills for the inevitable fight with robots of the future!  Like us on Facebook too!

If you thought math class was boring, its probably because you never spent it playing games on your calculator like I did when I was in high school.  I was lucky enough to have one of those TI-83+ Silver Edition calculators which had double the RAM of a normal TI-83 which I discovered allowed me to put more than just math formulas into the calculator.  Much of my time in math class was spent playing the classic Wolfenstein 3D on my calculator.  Well, if you too want to risk a major drop in your math grades, now you can play a Super Smash Brothers de-make!

Omnimaga (a site dedicated to video games on calculators) user Hayleia has created an open source de-make of Super Smash Brothers that looks like a great way to kill some time in math class.  Right now it only has Fox and Falco from Starfox but more characters can be added and he is looking for help if anybody is interested in lending a hand to the project.

Here are some gifs of the game in action.  Share this with all of your Super Smash Bros. loving friends!  Like Global Geek News on Facebook too!

Ever since I started my geeky fashion blog, Fanboy Fashion, I haven’t posted much fingernail art here since it usually makes the most sense for me to post it over there rather than here on Global Geek News (you can still find a ton of it if you search for nail art over on the right).  Well, since I already have a post planned for over there today (some amazing Diablo Demon Hunter cosplay), I figured I might as well post this incredible steampunk fingernail art here because it is simply too amazing not to post somewhere!  Long nails aren’t really my thing but even I have to admit these are pretty spectacular.

This incredibly detailed steampunk nail art was created by Simone Gilbert.  Between the gears, goggles and pretty much everything else, this might just be the most detailed nail art I have ever seen!  I can definitely say this is also the only time I have seen a corset on nail art before.

I remember that giving somebody a mixtape used to be a big deal back in the days of cassette tapes although I can’t say I ever made one.  I suppose the closest I ever came to doing something like that was to burn some CDs of various songs for my long road trips to and from college.  It really helped pass the time on those 9 hour drives but since I kept those CDs to myself, I can’t say I have ever had the experience of giving somebody a ‘mixedtape’, especially since that seems to largely be a romantic gesture and I have always been single.  Anyway, in modern times, apparently mixtapes now take the form of USB drives and I found this cool shirt to inform me of that because I honestly thought the idea of a mixtape had died long ago.

The awesome folks over at Tshirtbordello are selling this funny ‘I made You This Mixtape T-Shirt’ for just $14.99!  If you are one to show your love with USB drives full of music (which I’m sure you purchased legally, right?), then I think this shirt might just be for you!  Or if you just want to make fun of people that do that and still call it a mixtape even though there is no more cassette tapes involved, this would be a good shirt for you too!  Although calling it a mixed USB drive just sounds weird so until a new term is invented (feel free to suggest them in the comments below), perhaps still using the word mixtape can be forgiven.
