Nick’s Friday Round-Up: Rage, Science, Retro and More Edition

When we last left off, our heroes had been turned into aliens. We now find ourselves with a new name. No longer the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Not even the Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. Nope. As of now, our heroes are only the Ninja Turtles, with Michael Bay saying, "WOAH THERE! This decision is not my fault, Yo. Take yourselves another chill pill." [blastr]

In other rage-inducing news, the writer/directors of Harold and Kumar will be rebooting the Back to the Future trilogy. Yes, you read that correctly. This is something that's going to happen. However, not in the immediate future. [blastr]

If you haven't heard, Silent Hill is being re-released in HD. You would think this would be a most excellent thing. Sadly, the developers felt that it was a good idea to sacrifice the dark, atmospheric, grainy feel, for the sake of HD. Completely causing them to miss the mark of what Silent Hill is all about. Take a look. [geekosystem]

For everyone who loves video game music. Here are the 9 best current-gen video game soundtracks. [gammasquad]

What would you say if I told you that you can go supersonic without the sonic boom? You'd think I was crazy, right? Well guess what. Some dudes have developed a supersonic biplane that, when it surpasses the speed of sound, it doesn't create a sonic boom. Maybe now a flight from LA to NYC won't take 6 hours. [geekosystem]

The future is upon us! We don't have holographic touch screens just yet, but we're close. Flexible E Ink is now in mass production. It's kinda like a Kindle if it was a flexible, thin piece of plastic that'll get lost once you set it down and walk away, or your dog finds it, mistaking it for your homework. [geekosystem]

Playstation 4: Codename Orbis [geekosystem]

Do you love pizza but find yourself too lazy to call the pizza place to order it? Why not move to Dubai?  A pizza establishment there will give you a refrigerator magnet, that, at the push of a button, automatically orders your favorite pizza for you. No fuss, no muss. Ahhh, laziness at its finest. [geekologie]

Thinking of getting engaged? Married? Why not go super ape-geek with it. You can propose to her with a TARDIS themed engagement ring, then, on the big day, you can both exchange Darth Vader/Lightsaber themed wedding bands.

Just an 64-bit girl, livin' in an 8-bit world! (didn't I make this same reference last week?) Check out these movie posters converted to their 8-bit versions. [behance]

First Nickelodeon gives us "The 90s are All That". Now Cartoon Network has decided to follow in their footsteps by giving us CARTOON PLANET. [buzzfeed]

Speaking of old 90s TV shows. Let's take a look at some 90s TV supporting actors, THEN and NOW. [buzzfeed]

For those fans of Terra Nova, with that last ray of hope that Netflix would pick up a second season, it looks as if our hope has been shattered. [blastr]

I present to you, in all it's glory, the Doctor Who season 7 trailer! (insert angelic music. Just don't blink) [geekosystem]

Prepare yourselves for  a battle of EPIC proportions. Man VS Goose. Hold on to your seats, this battle gets serious. Who will be the victor? [youtube]
