Mario Kart + Star Wars = One of The Best Mash-Ups I've Ever Seen

I never thought that I would've enjoyed a mash-up between Mario Kart and Star Wars but OH MY GOD this is amazing. I can't believe Dark Pixel was able to put these two properties together and not make it seem like one side is getting the shorter end of the stick.
Now, when it first started, I thought it would've just been a re-imagining of Rainbow Road. But instead it's a Mario Kart race that takes place throughout most of the Star Wars Galaxy. Which I didn't think was possible. The amount of work that was put into this short video is amazing to me. I can't believe it.
The way Dark Pixel uses sound is this video is something that still amazes me. One of the things that wrapped me up in the video aside from the visuals was the sound design. There are a bunch of sound effects from both the Mario-verse and the Star Wars universe and the way they're implemented was the thing that completely put me in the video.
Even when they would shoot the little turtle shells at each other and use the Star Wars fighter blaster sounds would make me smile in a very particular way. You know the way, when you have a dumb smile on your face and you're afraid that everyone will start staring at you over the cubicle walls. It's like a weird childish feeling that I usually never get when I watch stuff. And I'm glad that Dark Pixel gave me happiness, even if it was for a second.
What do you guys think?

Would You Eat These Star Wars Ice Cream Flavors?
In a galaxy far, far away - or, you know, Brooklyn, a popular ice cream shop is banking in on the highly-anticipated 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' release by making a Force-approved release of their very own - two delectable flavors of frozen custard inspired by the film. Before you comment with "What the what, @danidee?! How'd they get past Disney?!", the limited edition flavors are a special collaboration between Ample Hill Creamery and Disney themselves. (Yes, sometimes when it's not being an evil miser of a corporation, Disney knows how to be a homie and treat their fans to something great.) And these flavor descriptions are so beautiful I might cry. First, there's the Dark Side: ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownie bites, Cocoa Krispies, and white chocolate pearls "to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through." (The company's words, not mine.) Yeah, I bet that PB&J is looking pretty boring right now, Vader. And then, of course, there's the Light Side - fit for members of the Rebel Alliance (or people who just really like vanilla). It's marshmallow ice cream with homemade Rice Krispies and Cocoa Krispies treat clusters "to represent the dark side still lurking within the light." I like how they feel like they need to explain why they put two different types of Krispy treats in there. Bro, it's okay. You already had us at 'marshmallow ice cream'. Who knew Jedis were such supreme foodies? The best part is that Ample Hills is making the ice cream ONLY available online, which means that you don't have to live near their New York location to buy it! (Let's momentarily look past the fact that it costs $36 for a 4-pack and you have to pay for express shipping, shall we?) So with that being said: Are you down to order some Star Wars ice cream? Or are you perfectly content with just sprinkling some Cocoa Krispies on your Thrifty Chocolate Malted Crunch and calling it a day? Let me know in the comments below, and for more things you didn't know you wanted to buy until you opened up Vingle today, follow my SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY collection!

What Was Your First Fandom?
There's nothing like your first. Vingle is awesome because it feels like no matter how obscure my fandom is, there's always someone else here who's into it! So let's take a trip down nostalgia lane and find out how it all began... The Superwholock fandom Did you dive headfirst into the wonderful wild world of Supernatural, Doctor Who, or Sherlock? I was away from fandom for a while, but some amazing Sherlock fic brought me back in. And you all know how that went! Now it's all fanfiction all the time here! Anime fandom I know there are a lot of you out there! The first fic I ever read was anime (and trust me, you don't want to know about the fic that I *wrote*. It was a monstrosity). Lord of the Rings fandom If you speak Elvish, you have my respect. The Marvel/DC fandom Superhero movies seem like they're here to stay. Whether it was Marvel or DC, Daredevil or the Dark Knight, you're gonna have a lot of fun in the coming years! And of course I'll be right there with you. Star Wars fandom I'm so happy for you all. I know Sherlockians have been called the fandom that waited... but you all really waited, didn't you? The Fandom that Lives Harry Potter is definitely a global fandom, and we haven't seen the likes of it before or since. The first fandom Star Trek inspired fandom as we know it today. The fic, the cons, the culture... to use an inappropriate quote "I was alone and I owe you so much". WAS THERE A FANDOM I MISSED??? If so please don't think I love you any less! In fact I probably want to know all about it. Share your first fandom experience!!! Were you a livejournaler in the days of Cassie Clare? Did you get sucked into Tumblr during Mishagate? Or were you one of the old school fans subscribing to zines in the mail? Or hey, is Vingle the first place you've let yourself fan the freak out? That would be awesome too. Let's get excited about our first fandoms!!!
코로나19 때문에 떡상한 바이러스 재난 영화 5선
Editor Comment 개봉 당시엔 미래에 대한 경고였을 바이러스 재난 영화.국내 영화 <감기>와 더불어 해외 바이러스 재난 영화가 전 세계적으로 재조명되고 있다. 모두 영화보다 더 영화 같은 현실이 벌어지고 있는 지금을 예견하고 있기 때문이다. 이 영화들의 공통 관전 포인트는 눈으로 보이지 않는 바이러스를 극복해나가는 인간의 사실적인 모습들이다. <아이즈매거진>이 현 상황과 맞닿은 바이러스 재난 영화 5선을 준비해봤다. 현실과 비슷한 상황에 비춰 감탄하기보다는 영화가 인류에게 던지는 메시지에 집중해보며 감상해보길. 크레이지(The Crazies, 2010) 코로나19는 중국 우한의 바이러스 연구소에서 노출된 바이러스에 의해 감염이 시작되었다는 의혹이 있다. 아직 과학적으로 증명된 바는 없지만, 중국 연구소 직원들이 발표한 바이러스 유출 논문에 쓰여진 사례로 본다면 가능성이 농후한 일이기도 하다. 영화 <크레이지>는 인위적 실험과 관리 소홀로 인해 생긴 치명적 바이러스에 초점을 맞췄다. 감염 후 단 48시간 만에 미치게 이르게 되는 치명적 바이러스의 이름은 ‘트릭스’. 바이러스가 유출됐다는 사실을 알고 있던 정부는 군부대를 투입, 도시를 폐쇄하고 생존자를 전멸시키려 한다. 살인 광기에 휩싸인 생존자들과 도시를 전멸시키려는 정부를 상대로 필살적으로 탈출을 시도하는 주인공 데이빗과 그의 가족들. 반인륜적인 영화 속 정부의 결정이 과연 최선의 선택이었을지 생각하며 감상해보길 추천한다. 컨테이젼(Contagion, 2011) 코로나19로 인해 더욱 재조명되고 있는 영화, <컨테이젼>. 영화 같은 현실, 현실 같은 영화라 해도 과언이 아닐 정도로 전염병의 확산에 따른 인간의 공포와 사회적 혼란을 사실적으로 그려내 큰 공감을 불러일으키고 있다. 바이러스의 배경지는 홍콩. 미국인 베스는 홍콩 출장을 마치고 집으로 돌아가기 전, 공항 바에서 맥주 한 잔을 즐기면서 영화는 시작된다. 전염의 가장 직접적 경로인 손에 포커스를 맞춘 점과 영화 말미에 드러나는 바이러스의 경로가 박쥐의 변을 먹고 자란 돼지를 요리한 요리사로부터 시작되었다는 점이 코로나19 사태와 매우 닮아있다. 영화 속 명대사, “늑장 대응으로 사람들이 죽는 것보단 과잉 대응으로 비난받는 게 낫다고 생각합니다.”는 심각한 상황을 마주한 우리들에게 귀감이 될 만한 메시지를 주기도. 아웃브레이크(Outbreak, 1995) 1995년에 개봉된 ‘에볼라’ 바이러스를 다룬 영화, <아웃브레이크>. 1967년 아프리카 모타바 계곡 용병 캠프에 의문의 출혈열이 발생하고 수많은 용병이 죽는다. 미군은 용병들의 혈액만 채취한 뒤 폭탄을 투하해 그들을 몰살시킨다. 30년이 흘러 같은 지역에서 또다시 출혈열이 발생해 모두가 사망하고, 에볼라 바이러스가 숙주 원숭이를 통해 미국에 퍼지며 큰 위기에 빠지는 내용을 담고 있다. <아웃브레이크>는 전염병이 어떤 과정으로 발생, 확산되는지 조금 더 구체적이고 사실적이게 묘사됐다. 특히, 정부가 국민을 희생양으로 삼으려는 과정은 영화의 극적인 긴장감을 더해주는 관전 포인트. 나는 전설이다(I Am Legend, 2007) SF 소설계의 세기의 걸작으로 꼽히는 ‘리처드 매드슨’의 동명 베스트셀러를 원작으로 제작된 영화 <나는 전설이다>. 2012년, 인류의 멸망. 전 인류가 멸망한 가운데 과학자 로버트 네빌만이 살아남는다. 지난 3년간 그는 매일같이 또 다른 생존자를 찾기 위해 절박한 심정으로 방송을 송신한다. 그러나 그가 그토록 애타게 찾았던 생존자들은 더 이상 인간의 모습이 아니었다. 그들은 이상 바이러스에 감염되어 ‘변종 인류’로 변해 버린 것. 인류의 운명을 짊어진 네빌은 면역체를 가진 자신의 피를 이용해 백신을 만들어낼 방법을 알아내야만 하는 숙명을 짊어지게 되고 인류 최후의 전쟁을 치르게 된다. 놀랍게도 이 영화의 결말은 감독판과 극장판에 따라 두 가지로 나뉜다. 스포는 하지 않겠다. 시간적 여유가 된다면 두 결말의 차이점을 비교해 감상해보길. 캐리어스(Carriers, 2009) 정체불명의 바이러스로 오염된 세상. 호흡과 타액, 혈액으로 감염되는 치사율 100%의 바이러스가 삽시간에 퍼져 인류는 멸망 직전의 위기를 맞게 된다. 영화 <캐리어스> 속 주요 인물들은 바이러스를 피해 어렸을 적 부모님과 함께 즐거운 시간을 보냈던 해변가로 향하기로 하고, 살아남기 위해 규칙을 정한다. 이들이 자발적으로 정한 규칙은 바이러스에 걸린 사람은 돕지 않고, 함께 다니지 않는 것. 영화의 관전 포인트는 바로 이 부분이다. 인간이 극한의 상황에 치닫게 되면 생존본능에 충실한 생물체가 될 수밖에 없다는 현실적인 내용에 잠시 깊은 생각에 빠지게 만든다. 만약 당신이 영화 속 주인공이었다면 어떤 결정을 내렸을까? 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
