Crónicas LiB

This article is in Spanish, sorry about it

Esta mañana salí como personaje invitado en las excelentes Crónicas PSN, donde encima tuve el imenso honor de sufrir un Poochie.

Un honor tan grade merece una respuesta, así que durante una de las pausas café saqué el Inkscape y me puse a dibujar...

Así que aquí tenéis la respuesta: Crónicas LiB

Gracias @andresPSN por el cameo en las Crónicas, ¡me ha encantado!

The next day

And the day after almost four millions of people were in the streets telling how much we love our freedom of expression, French government and the main opposition party speak about how many liberties could easily be given up to get more security...

I guess they haven't learnt anything of this sad story.

Nous somme tous Charlie

Real-life mashup of Assassin's Creed and Parkour

Real-life mashup of Assassin's Creed and Parkour

Do you dislike cosplay? O.K., stop here, you're not going to like this...

You don't care for Assassin's Creed, do you? Then stop too.

And parkour? Do you hate seeing parkour videos? Then get out, please.

And last of all, Paris, la ville lumière, the capital of the baguette-eating Frenchies. If you don't like Paris, you won't appreciate this.

Still here?

Well, then I guess you're going to like this video where Assassin's Creed Unity meets parkour in real life. It's an impressive video of Assassin's Creed themed parkour in Paris streets, it's simply breathtaking!

The author is devinsupertramp, a YouTuber specialized in parkour and urban action videos, and this one is IMHO one of his best works.

And if you want to see more Assassins's Creed Parkour and you're lucky enough to be at San Diego's Comic Con, go see the Assassin's Creed Experience and their huge, real-life parkour course!

8-bits version of the Avengers movie

8-bit cinema - The Avengers

The Avengers is one of my all-time favourite movies, one of those movies I can watch again and again and still enjoy it. And 8-bit games are part of my DNA, I grew up playing video games and I still find those old games way more enjoyable than modern hyper-realist ones.

So you can easily imagine how thrilled I was then I found out about this wonderful recreation of The Avengers film like if it was a 8-bits game.

It's made by CineFix that have a nice 8-bit movies section with other titles like The Fifth Element or Kill Bill.

So if you love either The Avengers or 8-bit games, or even better both of them, watch this 8-bits version of the Avengers movie now, you won't regret it!

LEGO Simpsons minifigure collection

I was really happy last year when LEGO announced the superbe LEGO Simpsons House, even if it was too expensive for me. I was happy because I hoped they would release other Simposons themed sets.

And they have done something even better, they are releasing a Simpsons minifigure collection!

Trickster, fan-made Matrix film

I guess most of you have already seen it, as it has been shared on social networks for weeks now. I discovered it last week, and I forgot about it, and yesterday, while closing old tabs on my browser, I stumbled upon it. And I told myself I had to share it...

So here you have Trickster, a small live-action short film based on the Matrix movie. It's a fan-made film made in Colombia by a team of passionate guys wanting to test their skills on film making and visual effects.

If, as most people of my generation, you have some fond memories of the first time you watched Matrix on the cinema, you will like this great short film:

Lunarbaboon

Today I've discovered via Think Geek the site of Lunarbaboon. As he describes it, Lunarbaboon is a webcomic is a gag-a-day strip that focuses on many themes, but mostly is about parenting, other themes include depression, death, and Star Wars, and as a 30 something geek and father I find his comic simple wonderful.

The comic that made me go to his site was this one:

Lunarbaboon

As a geek dad myself, I really loved it. I've often felt myself like that. But most of times there was no monster under the bed :D

Another sample of why I became a fan of his comics:

Lunarbaboon

As I told you last week, I believe in supporting the artists I like, in a direct way. So as Lunarbaboon has a Patreon page, I've added him to the list of artist I support on Patreon.

So go see his work, go!

The Big Brick Theory

Once more I've found a gold nugget in the great blog of Gang de Geeks, these guys are simply great (if you speak French you should add them to your daily browsing habits right now!).

I guess you know Cuusoo, the crowd-sourcing community project from LEGO to allow fans to submit their ideas for new LEGO Sets. Since its creation the site has received hundred of ideas, ans some of the most popular have become true LEGO sets, like the incoming LEGO Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Set.

And the project I discovered thanks to Gang de Geeks is the Mini-Big Bang Theory, a campaign to recreate the TV series in minifig format.

The Big Brick Theory

If you're like me, the above picture has made you want to open your wallet and buy the set right now. Well, it isn't possible, the project hasn't be approved yet, but it has gathered enough support to archive the review stage, i.e. LEGO is taking it in consideration.

The Big Brick Theory

You cans see more pics in the Cuusoo page or in the
the campaign page for Lego Big Bang Theory.

The Big Brick Theory

Let's hope it passes the review and that next year we will found mini-Sheldon and mini-Leonard (and mini-Penny!) in our toy stores!
