In case you missed it Conan O’Brien signed off Friday night for the final time as the host of The Tonight Show. And he did it with class:

Well done. I have no doubt Coco will land on his feet (and a $45 million cushion NBC gave him should help his fall).

“Every ginormous idea is born in a very special moment.” The LEGO Click community is the company’s new forray into social networking to create a “collaborative environment designed for inventors, artists and creative enthusiasts to share their vision about new products and toys.” Take a look at the vid below, and if you’ve got the time check out the site which is constantly getting built upon (and gets points for me for including everything from Star Wars to the Aptera).

Star Wars Burlesque (yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like) recently took over the Los Angeles club Bordello for a night of geeky debauchery thanks to the folks at Devil’s Playground. The clip (and pics which you can view here) are a little NSFW, but it’s Star Wars Burlesque so you aren’t going to let that stop you, are you?

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Aside from canceling teh ‘monkey’s travel plans, the latest snowfall has slowed us down a bit here. We’ll still be bringing you some awesome, but we’ve got to shovel it out from under the latest snow drift first (which might take awhile).

bacon popcornDo you like bacon? How about popcorn?

Well, here you go. Yes, it’s bacon-flavored popcorn.

Did I fall asleep and miss the memo that bacon had become the new all-purpose flavor additive from everything from popcorn to mayonnaise?

David Tennant is gone. Despite the schmaltzy over-long ending of “The End of Time Part 2” (did Peter Jackson direct the final half-hour?) I must say I was relatively happy with the manor Tennant’s Doctor said goodbye (though a few less tears and whining would have been nice – did Bryan Singer direct these segments?). But we’ve now got a new Doctor to discuss. Here’s the trailer for the first season of Matt Smith at The Doctor.

Doctor Who Season Five Trailer

*Note – If you watch until the end you’ll see they have indeed decided to go with a new Doctor Who logo for the new season.
