Arnold as Pac-Man, Mr. T as Donkey Kong, The Fonz as Frogger and Wonder Woman as Super Mario, amongst others. It's a goddamned modern-day masterpiece. I don't know who the genius is that's responsible this, but if you have any inkling I'm dying to find out.

Inspector Spacetime!

In last week's third season premiere episode, Community brilliantly (albeit briefly) parodies Doctor Who with a clip from "Inspector Spacetime", which Britta shows Abed in an attempt to distract him from the fact that Cougar Town (a show he loves so much he actually cameo'd on it) has been pushed back to mid-season replacement status. From this brief, 25-second sequence an internet fanbase was born, and although it's still only early days (and I do mean days, literally) the Inspector Spacetime meme is gathering steam like crazy. Oh internet, it's reasons like this that you're awesome.

Super Mario Bros. 3 - Vancouver Skytrain Map

(Click for full-size)

Dave, of Dave's Geeky Ideas, recently posted this very excellent map of my hometown's Skytrain routes in the style of Super Mario Bros. 3. If you aren't a local, you may not appreciate all the intricacies here - not the least of which is that Dave has pretty effectively converted the geographical layout of Vancouver and the Lower Mainland into the grid-like structure seen above. In other words: all those rivers and land-masses are more or less accurate to real life, there is a giant Hammer Brother between Main Street-Science World and Broadway, and as I live right next to Oakridge-41st, I can confirm that the hills with eyes overlooking that general region not only exist but are creepy as all hell.

Dave's got a ton of other cool stuff featured on his blog over at Dave's Geeky Ideas, which you should definitely check out. I may be showcasing more of his work in the future because, seriously, Game of Thrones hockey jerseys? Shit just got real!
