Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: an honest trailer for Michael Bay‘s Transformers, HP Lovecraft & Nikola Tesla as paranormal investigators, a fan-made Blade trailer, a customized Star Trek Starfleet Academy diploma, and Will Smith does the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air rap, plus Bits Of Doom.

The folks over at Screen Junkies present another one of their Honest Trailers, where they pretty much say what we’re all thinking. This installment is for Michael Bay’s Transformers.

Way back in 2006 we wrote about how James Doohan, who played Scotty in the original Star Trek series, wished for his cremated remains to be launched into space after his death. One attempt to fulfill his last wishes failed in 2008, but a second attempt will be made today. [The Mary Sue]
We’re ending off this edition of Doom Digest with another clip from Will Smith‘s appearance on The Graham Norton Show, where they look over the ridiculous-looking action figures from one of Smith’s blockbuster films, Independence Day.
