DIY: Millennium Falcon Theater

YouTuber Beardless Man has uploaded a video of the Millennium Falcon-themed tablet stand he and his son made for watching movies.  He notes that the Millennium Falcon shape is not only ideal for watching as you lie down and look up, it’s also makes for good acoustics so both people inside the theatre can hear the tablet.  Plus, I have to think that it looks pretty cool sitting in a corner when not in use.  Now that I've seen one made, I may try making one of these for myself.
"Rogue One: A Star Wars story comes out today, and it inspired me to do a Star Wars DIY build. A Millennium Falcon theater, a place to lay back and enjoy watching the newest Star Wars movie without having your arms fall asleep from holding the tablet up, or having it drop on your face.

"When I found out that this is the last time I’ll be seeing Hugh Jackman as the wolverine, I decided to do a small tribute to him. He has endured the character Wolverine for almost a decade and no one can ever replace him. For me he is and will always be the Wolverine."

Paintings: Van Gogh Never

"Van Gogh Never" by Scotia, New York-based artist Aja Kusick
Prints available for purchase from Etsy. US$12

For an ongoing series entitled "Van Gogh Never," Aja Kusick recreates Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night as a backdrop for pop culture characters.  The series started when an education blog mistakenly shared Aja’s painting of the Eiffel Tower as a Van Gogh original despite the fact that the artist died in poverty just a year after the monument was completed.  After that, Kusick decided to create other paintings of things that Van Gogh never saw, from the TARDIS flying over Gallifrey to a Super Mario Bros. level.

All the Reasons Why John Carpenter's Cult Classic They Live Is as Timely as Ever

The Garden of Earthly Delights” by Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch has been subject to a number of different interpretations throughout the years. The iconic triptych has been made interactive, animated, visualized and transcribed musically. In keeping with this theme, the Dutch company Parastone offers wonderfully amusing and collectable figurines of many of the odd characters found in the garden. Included are such characters as the Tree Man, the Helmeted Bird, the Bird in the Blue Egg, the Castle Man and the Blue Flutist, just to name a few of the doomed misbehaving souls.
