It’s fascinating to see all of the facets of geek culture represented on the Internet these days. One of the more intriguing creative outlets I’ve stumbled upon is the Cosplay: Piano video series on Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel. The nicely-shot clips feature Award winning Pianist Sonya Belousova playing familiar genre TV/movie themes on the piano while cosplaying as the character she is honoring with her music. That’s it. Simple, kind of odd…but beautiful. Here’s here latest and most ambitious Cosplay: Piano video, a salute to HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. I love the way-too-happy Tyrion Lannister cosplayer with the really bad blonde wig. So great.
Jeff is the defining voice of his generation. Sadly, that generation exists only in an alternate dimension where George Lucas became supreme overlord of the Earth in 1979 and replaced every television broadcast and theatrical film on the planet with Star Wars and Godzilla movies. In this dimension, he’s just a guy from New England who likes writing snarky things about superheroes, monsters, and robots.
