Star Wars cookbooks

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2009

Star Wars cookbooksYou’ve got your Fancy replica lightsaber, your pajamas and you attend all the conventions. You cross dress and wear your hair in Leia buns. Remember that surgery you considered to make yourself look more like Jar Jar? Despite all of that you can’t actually live in the Star Wars universe. But you can eat like you do.

With the help of the Star Wars cookbooks, you’ll be making Wookiee Cookies, Jedi Juice Bars, Dark Side Salsa, Boba Fett-Uccine, and more. Rachael Ray ain’t gonna show you how to make these dishes. Two volumes full of recipes from a galaxy far far away.

Ctrl-Alt-Del pillows for a style reboot

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on April 8th, 2009

Ctrl-Alt-Del pillows for a style rebootThe Mac fanboys have their Mac-O-Lantern pillows. Your laptop has the Log pillow. These pillows can be just for you.

They’ll give you a style reboot just by being there. But be careful. Leaning on all three at once will warp time and space, changing the reality around you. Might be a good idea to have a task manager blanket handy.

Star Trek line of Urns and Caskets

Posted in Sci-Fi by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2009

Star Trek line of Urns and CasketsWe knew about the coffin that looks like a photon torpedo, but the urns are new to us. You can now feel free to die and STILL pretend you are in the Trek universe. At long last the caskets will be available in early 2009, so that all your friends can get in costume and stand over it, reciting classic lines from ST II.

But that’s not all. Monuments and vaults will also be available soon from the company. They are really working hard to profit from cold geek death. Maybe their next trick will be tricking out your corpse in all kinds of Borg gear. That I can get behind.

Exploded Atari 2600 T-shirt is awesome

Posted in Apparel by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2009

Exploded Atari 2600 T-shirt is awesomeThis Exploded Atari 2600 shirt is all kinds of awesome. It illustrates disassembly perfectly for any geek who thinks that the Atari 2600 is somehow full of tons of parts and hard to take apart.

We recommend wearing it while doing such mods as the Atari-Hero, or the Multari. You can’t have too many geek shirts after all. Even when you run out of drawer and closet space. That’s what your floor is for, right? It will only cost you $17.

The folks over at icoeye have compiled a great guide and a PDF that you can download to add some geeky style to your library. Pretty cool. You can download the template to create your own designs too.

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive Cake

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2009

Bakery mistake results in the creation of a USB Flash Drive CakeWe like geek cakes ’round these parts, as evidenced by our not one, but two compilations of geek cakes. But if you want a custom cake from a bakery, you better be specific about what it is that you want. Otherwise you end up with cake fail.

So check out this funny incident. Some guy orders a custom cake and asked that a photo of a friend be integrated into the decoration. Simple enough right? So he delivers the photo as a .JPG on a Lexar Jumpdrive Trio flash drive. And look what ended up on the cake.

Robot Ink: 20 awesome robot tattoosOver at Botropolis we have a compilation of awesome robot tattoos. If you’re gonna get some ink, consider getting something in the likeness of our future lords and masters. You never know, those who carry the mark of the bot may be spared on that future day of reckoning when the rest of us are all just charred corpses.

The Donkey Kong quilt looks pretty comfy

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on January 10th, 2009

The Donkey Kong quilt looks pretty comfyWhile you will never get to the famous Donkey Kong kill screen with this quilt, it will keep you comfy on these winter nights. Unless you choose to hang it on your wall. It’s a faithful rendition of the classic game we all know and love. It measures 64 square inches and is made from 100% cotton.

Etsy seller CarolinaPatchworks did a great job. I would say that it’s pixel perfect. And isn’t it time you changed those Star Wars bedsheets? Of course, fine geek craftsmanship like this isn’t cheap. It will cost you $450. That’s 1800 quarters, in case you were wondering.

Star Wars clock has a starship on every hour

Posted in Star Wars by Conner Flynn on January 1st, 2009

Star Wars clock has a starship on every hourThis fun clock features a different starship or fighter on every hour of the clock, handmade by Etsy seller YOUgNeek, and you can order a customized version. They used tiny action fleet Micro Machine battleships and vessels. The ships are specially re-finished in a pewter color scheme so that they’ll match the clock’s chrome finish.

If you want different Star Wars vehicles, just request them and have $89.99 ready. I’m guessing that a Star Trek version is coming soon.

Christmas Tree made from 70 recycled Hard Drives

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 18th, 2008

Christmas Tree made from 70 recycled Hard DrivesOh yes. We like shiny. This is one shiny tree. It’s the kind of project that you take on when you find yourself with 70 defunct SCSI hard drives and a whole lotta free time on your hands. If that sounds like you this Christmas season, you can make one too, just like the builder of this tower of joy. It was built by a man with a horse name(trigger).

He took the drives from RAID arrays that were destined for the scrap heap. Instead of performing the DoD wipe that would have otherwise been needed, he built this geek tree from the shiny discs within. The tree is made entirely from the drive pieces, with one exception. A single nut.

Indiana Jones Golden Idol CakeA few weeks ago, we took a look at some pretty awesome geek cakes. Although we don’t necessarily promote tooth decay or stomachaches, here’s 25 more. All great confectionery nerd works of art, each and every one. Click through for a visual sugar rush.

Working LEGO PlayStation

Posted in lego by Conner Flynn on December 11th, 2008

Working LEGO PlayStationLegos are good enough to build a safeand countless statues, so why not a PlayStation?

This mod is the work of a clever high school modder who completed the project one night, instead of chasing girls and boozing it up. See kids, a clean life will yield great Lego geek toys. Looks like this kid basically just gutted his PS and inserted the innards into a custom Lego case. Which doesn’t make it easy, just simple.

Clue goes geek with Dungeons and Dragons Edition

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on November 24th, 2008

Clue goes geek with Dungeons and Dragons EditionSay you’re a Clue fan who finds the game a little stale after so many years and you also really really love D&D. Here’s what you need to get yourself this Christmas. Find out who killed the Archmage. Any of the 6 players could be the evil doppleganger.

Was it Tordek the Dwarf Fighter with the Flaming Battle Axe in the Library of Arcane Tomes? Or maybe it was Lidda the Halfling Rogue with the Dagger of Venom in the Magical Armory? Or perhaps Nebin the Gnome Wizard with the Mace of Disruption in the Chamber of Tricks & Traps?

It’s as if thousands of geek minds suddenly cried out, at the prospect. But in agony or ecstasy? The game is like standard Clue but with a D&D twist. All the rooms, weapons, and characters have been changed to a D&D theme. You also get a deck of Wandering Monster cards. When you draw one you have to fight one of the six monsters. If you do this and win, you gain an advantage and can look at your opponent’s deck or get an extra turn. Lose your battle with the monster and get sent to the maze in the middle of the board where you have to roll a die to get out. Comes with six pewter characters and six pewter weapons.

Some guy plays Guitar Hero on a bike

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on November 20th, 2008

This is one hell of a bike/Guitar Hero mashup. Who knows how long it took these GH geeks to set the whole thing up. All I know is that this dude and his friends had wayyy too much time on their score-marked hands. It’s just further proof, as if we needed any, that rock nerds go freakin crazy for GH, while the rest of us are doing stuff like, I don’t know, kissin girls. Okay, I admit it rocked just a tad. They get points for a crazy ride. It just leaves ya feeling like, “What the hell did I just watch?”.
