Awesomesauce: How to Crisp Up Your Pizza During Reheating

November 30, 2011 Leave a comment

I personally don’t mind soft reheated pizza, but this is still pretty cool. Anyone who considers themselves a major fan of pizza should watch the above; at the very least you can impress your friends. How is this nerd-related? You could argue it isn’t, but I say show me a nerd and I’ll show you a pizza connoisseur.

P.S. the line “let me grab a fork here, no not to eat it with: I’m not a Communist.” got a laugh out of me. Well done.

Fan art is usually hit or miss. There’s stuff that looks nice but isn’t exactly ground-breaking, usually just copying an existing piece. Then there’s stuff that actually shows a bit of creativity and comes out simply stunning. One such example is this gallery by S. Strand on deviantART, which features the characters of the Assassin’s Creed series done in art noveau style (which, honestly, is a no brainer. It fits the tone of the series just so damn well). Hit the jump to see the pieces.

Cosplayer Lindsey Stirling stars in this awesome video where she plays out a full Zelda medley in costume while prancing through various locales. It’s the first, as far as I can tell, actual music video made for The Legend of Zelda. Check it out above.
