A fresh take from Deviant Artist, Drew Northcott (Smaggers), who has mashed the beloved Portal series with Salvador Dali’s infamous “Persistence of Memory,” painting. According to the artist, it could very well be hung in Valve’s offices right now. Very cool.
Not Cool: Glee Rips Off The Dude Who Wrote The Portal Theme Song
Jonathan Coulton is most notable among gamers for writing “Still Alive” - the iconic anthem at the end credits of Portal. Well, someone at Fox must be a fan because check THIS shit out…
Here’s a cover of Sir Mixalot’s “I Like Big Butts” from Coulton’s 2006 album Thing a Week One.
Now here’s a the same cover by Glee which totally rips off Coulton’s arrangement note-for-note.
I mean, sure, you can totally say that covers are ripoffs to begin with, but re-arranging a song into a completely different genre takes way more talent and energy than lifting a song from some obscure musician in hopes that no one will notice.
Dear people who work at Fox, there’s this thing called the Internet and it will always find out EVERYTHING.
You can get your hands on this 12” Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device replica for just $60 over at ThinkGeek. It comes with a display stand, lights up from blue to orange, and even makes those satisfying “pwoosh” sounds!
What if after Chell escaped Aperture Laboratories at the end of Portal 2 she ran into Gordon Freeman from Half-Life? This fan film by Michael Shanks teams the two silent heroes up for an epic battle against the forces of evil. Watch as they kill things with portals and gravity. For science!
Atlas and P-body both have bodies and can walk around, where as Wheatley never really had the ability to walk around on his own. Here is what I think his body would look like if he were in charge of making it. I tried to stay true to the color schemes, and I even made a companion cube to go with him. I used a Wheatley key chain, Cleatus torso, and Stel arms and legs. The gun was sculpted from scratch. Wheatley is removable and the light still works, so you can still turn him on.
And now we wait patiently for somebody to turn this into cosplay.
Reddit user ThunderMustache has officially impressed the shit out of me — more than any other Reddit user this week. Using only a ruler and black/silver Sharpies, he hand drew his door to resemble a sign in an actual Aperture Science laboratory study. Pretty kickass and seriously impressively awesome.
A Little Bit On The Portal Side: Aperture Laboratories gas mask by TwoHornsUnited. He’s making a list of interested buyers and will be selling these things this summer for $280. Emo haircut not included.
A Little Bit On The Portal Side: Every other Portal themed cake may as well just give up and go eat some doo-doo in a place somewhere. This jawnz is straight up beast mode and I’ll probably make my lady make me one. She’s been taking cake decorating classes, so I’m sure she could bang this out in, like, a day or two.
