eleven

If you’re like me, you thought Millie Bobby Brown’s performance as Eleven was one of the best parts about Stranger Things. Speaking of being traumatized, you might think that the moment she got her head shaved would provide all of the fuel she needed to portray the character—especially since the Duffer brothers didn’t inform her about the haircut until the last audition. Apparently, she was able to get through it with the help of Furiosa.

“I sat in the chair, and, one by one, they cut it off,” Brown told IndieWire. “I was like, ‘Oh no. What have I done? And they told me, ‘I want you to have the mind-frame of Charlize Theron in Mad Max.” And we did this sort of split-screen of her and me, and the resemblance was amazing! I thought, ‘Wow, that’s such an amazing way to put it, you know?’ It was the best decision I’ve ever, ever made.”

Not impressed with Amazon’s Prime Day sale? Well, that might be because they chose items like Fire tablets and I dunno, giant barrels of lube over stuff like Star Trek swimsuits, Planetary Glasses, and Han Solo rugs.

Indeed, there’s plenty more discounted nerdery where that came from. ThinkGeek’s massive summer clearance sale is offering up to 65% off hundreds of items. So make sure to check out the selection before all of the best stuff sells out.

iss patch

The Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) are responsible for the U.S. National Laboratory on the International Space Station. This year they teamed with Marvel to make an official mission patch that stars Groot and Rocket Raccoon.

Honestly, I’m not surprised. There’s a nerd or two working for NASA after all. In fact, I’ll be the other agencies are super jealous right now.

The patch was revealed at SDCC by CASIS rep Patrick O’Neill, who notes that the patch represents all of the scientific investigations on the station’s National Laboratory for 2016. From The Verge:

“These are characters who have a bit of a space-based background to begin with,” said O’Neill. “So both of [these] characters already embody some of the characteristics associated with what’s happening on the space station.”

Check out more details about the creation of the patch in the video below. [click to continue…]
