Petition To Light The Empire State Building ‘TARDIS Blue’ To Celebrate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary
Because some people still dare to dream, a group of Doctor Who fans have created a petition to have the Empire State Building be lit ‘TARDIS blue’ (technically just regular-blue) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the series on November 23rd, when we’ll all gather around our TV’s and cry. Or riot in the streets and set cars on fire.
The Doctor has visited NYC many times over the years, most recently earlier this season. Now, Doctor Who fans from New York and around the world are working with NYSciFi & Fantasy to celebrate The Doctor’s 50th anniversary on one of New York City’s most famous landmarks: The Empire State Building.
We are asking the Empire State Building to light up “TARDIS Blue” on November 23rd to celebrate 50 great years of Doctor Who. The Empire State Building regularly uses their spectacular light show to celebrate special moments in pop culture, such as sports events, the 15th anniversary of The Lion King, and Wrestlemania, as well as all the holidays and occasions it’s more known for being lit up for. As far as we know, however, they’ve never lit up to celebrate a SciFi show. What better place to start than the iconic series Doctor Who?
Hey — whatever makes people happy. Unless it’s hurting other people, in which case you don’t deserve to be happy. Me? I do everything I can to be a kind and loving person and God still spites me with unhappiness. *booming voice* “YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID.” What, the who can fart the loudest in church contest? I WAS ELEVEN AND WOUND UP SHITTING MY PANTS. I’ve suffered enough.
Thanks to Doctor TeslawilLennon and Androly, who agree they should light the Empire State Building with blacklights one night to celebrate my college dorm room.

Beep boop boop bee squeee! Happy May 4th aka Star Wars Day (say the date out loud and you’ll figure out why). In celebration, quite a few hardware vendors have released special gear for the day, thereby allowing you to celebrate the magic of George Lucas in proper Mandalorian fashion.
First we have a charming facsimile of R2-A6, a green R2 unit that is a favorite of the Naboo security forces. Made by Mimobot, this sassy little droid you’re looking for comes with built-in content, including desktop backgrounds and icons. They also make a Jar Jar Binks USB key if you’re so inclined.
Next we have something from Lucasfilm lawsuit recipient Wicked Lasers whose Arctic laser looks like everything but a replica of a light saber. To celebrate May 4th, the company has released the $ 75 Phosforce that turns the Arctic laser into a white LED flashlight that can pump out an Ewok-blinding 500 lumens, allowing you to swing your thing around in the dark swamps of Dagoba or the back alleys of Coruscant.
To be clear, the Phosforce attachment must be purchased in addition to the $ 299 laser body and the adapter turns the Arctic’s decidedly dangerous blue laser light into eye-safe white light. It is not exactly an LED flashlight in the traditional sense but instead uses white-emitting phosphor. Also, to be clear, you can burn the heck out of your eyes if you mess with this thing wrong, so be careful.
Happy fourth and remember: Han shot first. May you live long and prosper.
There will be cake: join us at 8PM ET to celebrate Vergecraft’s first year with an in-game dance party!
In the beginning of Vergecraft, The Verge’s own Minecraft server, we lived the simple life. Newbies constructed ranches and fences to safeguard from the fresh, untamed wilderness. Iron was more priceless than gold. And Paul Miller was still on the net.
Times have changed, and we’re all matured now: from stretching cities, to concealed holy places, to an oceanic Mega-Pyramid inspired by a crazy Japanese architectural idea, the players of Vergecraft have actually collectively put in hundreds of hours of play time to develop a digital civilization. Now, it’s time to celebration. At 8PM ET today we’re going to have a birthday celebration in Vergecraft’s super exclusive nightclub, Club Void. As we did on the first day, we’ll be blasting tunes from an alternate universe in T.

Steam’s Big Picture mode, which aims to carve Valve’s gaming platform a presence in your living room, today moved out of beta and is ready for general public consumption. When enabled, the feature optimizes Steam’s on-screen presentation for an HDTV rather than your typical PC monitor. In doing so, Valve is making a big play at both the casual gaming sector and console owners that may be growing bored with aging hardware from Microsoft and Sony. Now users can assemble so-called Steamboxes that dramatically outpace the current crop of consoles, with the experience they ultimately take away limited only by their budget.
