Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Awesome Videos Edition

The first video today is Toy Story. I know you're asking, "Toy Story? What's so great about that?" My reply is, "This is the entire Toy Story movie, re-created, shot-for-shot, with real toys." Enjoy! [geekologie]

Next on the list, we have a live action, Sonic the Hedgehog fan-film. And to add that extra little bit of awesome, they got Jaleel White to voice Sonic. [howtogeek]

This is a stop motion video, in Minecraft, that shows the building of a house. Trust me, it's WAY more amazing than it sounds. If you're any kind of fan of Minecraft, you can appreciate all the work that went into making this video. Even using creative mode, this still would have taken an extremely long time. [howtogeek]

Making a snowman is always a fun thing to do during the winter, but how about destroying them? Here are 10 ways to destroy a snowman... in slow motion. [youtube]

Even the most simple tasks, like clipping your fingernails, becomes over complicated in outer space. [youtube]

In the past, I posted a picture of the TARDIS from Doctor Who mashed up to look like the DeLoreon from Back to the Future. Well it seems someone took that concept and made a short animated video of it. Doctor Who in the world of Back to the Future. [howtogeek]

And to end out the awesome videos, I have a Buffy/Twilight video mashup. Buffy meets Edward. Edward stalks Buffy. Buffy kills Edward. Sounds good to me! [blastr]

This ends our awesome videos section of the Round-Up. BUT WAIT! I still have a few more links for you.

Duck Hunt 2. Need I say more? Get to shooting those ducks! Also, the dog isn't as annoying. In fact, he's pretty cool this time around. [howtogeek]

If you happen to be visiting China, you should check out their new bootlegged World of Warcraft theme park, called Joyland World. Seems legit. [geekologie]

Speaking of World of Warcraft, it looks as if WoW players have broken the fundraising record for hurricane Sandy relief. Who said gamers are lazy and don't care about real life stuff. [geekosystem]

So.... Myspace is back and all rebooted and everything. [geekosystem]

There's now a possibility that we could get a live-action star wars series on ABC. Ya know... with Disney owning Star Wars and all that... [blastr]
