Turn Radishes Into ‘Super Mario’ Mushrooms With This Kitchen Gadget (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Ravanello Super Mario Mushroom Maker

When it comes to kitchen gadgets, usually we buy them because they make something annoying much easier. Or claim to, anyway. But sometimes one comes along that might not be essential in your kitchen, but is a must-own anyway.

That’s where the Ravanello comes into the picture. This little tool isn’t necessarily a life-changer, but what it does do geeks everywhere will without question throw their hard earned coin at to own. The Ravanello takes your basic everyday radish, and transforms it into a mushroom. No, not an actual mushroom. That would be incredible, and cost a hell of a lot more. But it does make it look like a mushroom—more specifically, one of those oh so familiar mushrooms from the Super Mario video game series and its spinoffs.

Must See: Tim Burton’s ‘Corpse Bride’ Cake (Video)
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

Anyone who has watched some Food Network in their day has likely seen some kind of competition in which a variety of amazing cake creations are made. Zoe’s Fancy Cakes is someone who would likely do well in competitions such as those.

For this Halloween season, the cake maker’s YouTube channel has been sharing some fitting tutorial videos. One of the videos shows you how to make a cake version of the Bride from Tim Burton‘s stop-motion feature Corpse Bride. Though I’m going to go ahead and assume most mortal beings such as you and I would not fare well in trying to pull the cake off, as it is a truly impressive piece of work.

Video: Real Pee-Wee Herman Style Breakfast Machine
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Pee-wee Herman Breakfast Machine

As a young child I always loved the beginning of Tim Burton’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure starring Paul Reubens as the Pee-wee Herman character he’s best known for playing—especially the part where his crazy Rube Goldberg contraption prepares his breakfast for him. I’m still fond of the movie overall to this very day, apart from a certain scene involving a certain sizeably nicknamed truck driver who scarred me for many years. No, I don’t wanna talk about it!

In the video you can check out below, a similar machine has been created that also prepares breakfast for you, just like Pee-wee’s…or for some of you perhaps closer to something you’ve seen in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Wallace and Gromit. It’s not nearly as elaborate or wacky as Pee-wee’s set up, but it does get the job done.

Breaking Bad’s Los Pollos Hermanos Might Become A Reality
Stoogeypedia   |  

Breaking Bad Los Pollos Hermanos yellow design

Los Pollos Hermanos, the fictional fried chicken franchise with restaurants up and down the West Coast, most notably in Albuquerque, NM, which really acts as just a front for crystal meth trafficking for criminal kingpin Gus Fring on the program Breaking Bad, just might become a real thing.

Vince Gilligan, the creator and key figure behind the storied program, which ended its run in late Summer of 2013 after a dazzling six seasons, which netted universal acclaim, success, and a cachet of high profile awards, mentioned on Reddit that there was talk of “Los Pollos Hermanos becoming a real restaurant.” He also vaguely added that a businessman had contacted him who had an “interest” in bringing the franchise to reality.

The Graham Norton Show Jamie Dornan Julie Walters, Stephen Mangan Christian Grey cake

Fifty Shades Of Grey actor Jamie Dornan is currently out making the talk show rounds to promote his new film, which opened in theaters this weekend. One of those promotional stops was to The Graham Norton Show last night, where he came face to face with a life-sized cake of his Christian Grey character.

While standing with Norton, British actor Stephen Mangan, and Harry Potter actress Julie Walters, Dornan took a taste from the Christian Grey cake, after Norton quite awkwardly cut slices from the gut area. One of the cake’s creators was in the audience and she revealed a few details about the edible version of the character with “singular tastes” (BDSM, people!).

Watch the videos here below of Dornan on The Graham Norton Show having a taste of the aforementioned cake as well as doing the interview portion of the episode where the host asked the audience if they’ve read Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Bud Light ‘Pac-Man’ Super Bowl Ad Among The Best This Year
Bombardier Jedi   |  @   |  

Bud Light Pac-Man Super Bowl Ad (2015)

While fans of the Seattle Seahawks lick their wounds and fans of the New England Patriots celebrate accordingly, the rest of the world now debates the important questions about the Super Bowl, such as “Which movie trailer did you like most?” or more importantly, “Which ad was the best?” Because after all, that’s what the non-sportsing types care about.

Ever since Apple’s ‘1984’ ad against Big Brother, the stakes go up every year for advertising for the Super Bowl. While this year seemed to be “The Year of Emotional Outcry,” there were still a few spots that went for that “Oh, that’s cool” factor. Some talk on social media is that an early frontrunner for “favorite” is the Bud Light “Pac Man” commercial amongst the more geeky viewers. In it, a patron at a bar who’s “Up For Anything,” is unwittingly turned into the legendary Pac-Man video game icon. The patron then runs around a giant grid avoiding the ghosts just like in the classic arcade game.

Check out the Bud Light “Pac-Man” ad in the video here below.
