Rulers Of Westeros of the day: Now that’s how Game Of Thrones should end. Everything’s coming up Davos!
Good Job, Old Sport! of the day: Ever wanted to play The Great Gatsby as an NES video game? Well now you can! Thanks to designers Charlie Hoey, Dylan Valentine, Michael DiMotta, and Pete Smith, all you Gatsby fans can finally be Nick Carraway in the search for the reclusive millionaire, collecting bonus cocktails and defeating the evil eyes of Dr T.J. Eckleburg. It’s little more than a simple platformer, but it’s incredibly well detailed and hugely entertaining, and probably a lot more fun than watching Baz Luhrmann’s recent adaptation.
Erm… judging from these tweets, we’d say Diplo isn’t much of a fan of the new Daft Punk record.
Attention to detail of the day: Hyped for the upcoming new season of Arrested Development on Netflix? Going through the obligatory rewatch of the first three seasons? Well Recurring Developments should help; a website tracking every running joke to appear throughout the series. Ladies and gentlemen, this is what the internet was created for.
Morbid reminder of the day: This infographic (created by Designbysoap) sorta kills the image of the invincible superhero doesn’t it? Also shows that unless you have either a) superpowers, b) genetic mutation or c) shedloads of cash and training, then your tenure as a hero will be very very short.
Thank You, Internet of the day: Some of the best movies of the past and present turned into endearing 8-bit (or is it 16? Or 32? God knows) gifs? You didn’t know you wanted it but you’re glad you’ve seen them now.
Watch: The crazy-subtle CGI in Game Of Thrones
Spoiler alert - those dragons aren’t real. And neither are half the surroundings seen throughout the series, but this showreel is testament to just how well CGI can be employed; augmenting an already existing scene instead of creating a brand new world out of green screen.
(PS: there are actual spoilers for Season 2 in the video if you’re still making your way through it, so don’t say we didn’t warn you)
Everyone Will Be Wearing Them Next Year of the day: Ladies and gentlemen,
Tony Stark Robert Downey Jr at the Iron Man 3 in Munich last night.
I Am The Ding-Dang-Diddly Danger of the day: Two of the best TV shows ever collide in this YouTube mash-up. Contains a few Breaking Bad spoilers if you’re not completely caught up and waiting hungrily for the last few episodes like the rest of us.
