San Francisco Gets its Own Lightsaber Academy

San Francisco Gets its Own Lightsaber Academy
I know I am not the only Star Wars fan out there who has long thought they need to learn to sword fight. Sure you can take normal fencing or Kendo, but let’s face it neither of those are the same as fighting with lightsabers.

Hamster Things is Stranger Things with Rodents

Hamster Things is Stranger Things with Rodents
My love of Stranger Things is no secret. In fact, it’s already one of my all-time favorite shows. I’m bummed that it will be about a year before new episodes come out and I know I am not the only one hoping next season is longer.

The Music of Ooo Vinyl Will Make Your Brain Go All Stupid
Adventure Time fans will want to just go ahead and get out your wallets, and pick up this vinyl record that has 38 musical tracks from seasons 1-7 on it. Among the tracks are the theme song for the show and the “Bacon Pancakes” tune that will stick in your brain forever.

Stranger Things IRL: Is the DoE Exploring Parallel Universes?

Stranger Things IRL: Is the DoE Exploring Parallel Universes?
I loved the first season of Stranger Things. It was awesome and I could totally relate as a child of the ’80s to just about everything the kids did. As it turns out, the series might have bothered the Department of Energy a bit, as Washington Free Beacon writer Lachlan Markay found out out after he made a Freedom of Information Act request to the DoE for any internal communications having to do with Stranger Things.

I think we all know about Krispy Kreme. They make yummy donuts that everyone likes even if they don’t want to admit that. Over in Korea, Krispy Kreme has some very cool donuts for a limited time that fans of Pokemon will love.

Star Wars Ewok Candy Bowl Doesn’t Live in Trees

Star Wars Ewok Candy Bowl Doesn’t Live in Trees
I have long thought that the Ewoks were the cutest little creatures in the Star Wars universe. I also think that Ewoks might be nothing more than really short Sasquatches who prefer to live in trees and crush walkers with big logs. 

Disney Almost Built a Real-World Myst Island

Disney Almost Built a Real-World Myst Island
Back in the day when I graduated from college the very first thing I did after getting my very first paycheck was run down to Best Buy and purchase a 3DO. It was awesome for the time and the very first video game I played on that console was Myst.

Preston Garvey Gets Pissed If You’re a Raider in Nuka World DLC

Preston Garvey Gets Pissed If You’re a Raider in Nuka World DLC
If you have ever played Fallout 4, you know that Preston Garvey can be pretty annoying. He beats on stuff with hammers all day if you leave him behind, and always has more settlements for you to save.

Cthulhu Hourglass Counts Drop by Drop to Your Doom

Cthulhu Hourglass Counts Drop by Drop to Your Doom
This Cthulhu hourglass will count down the remaining moments of your life, leading your impending doom. Inside the hourglass, a gooey red liquid appears to be the same sort of colored, thickened goo that is used in those cheap toys you see in the mall.

Why Dolby Vision HDR Matters

Why Dolby Vision HDR Matters
4K displays are becoming more and more ubiquitous these days, with prices dropping dramatically in the last couple of years, it’s now possible to get your hands on a UHD display for as little as $400 these days, depending on the size and other features, of course.

Cat Wars Calendar: The Dark Side of the Paws

Cat Wars Calendar: The Dark Side of the Paws
Cats are evil from the get go. You won’t find a dog that will let you pet him for a few minutes and then randomly bite and scratch you before it runs away and hides under the couch.

Tour a $1.5-million Star Trek Home Theater
Think your man cave is cool? Check out Marc and Jennifer Bell’s Star Trek themed home theater and bar. It was a labor of love that took four years and $1.5-million to complete, and puts other home theaters to shame.

King’s Landing Puzzle is 3D and Explodable

King’s Landing Puzzle is 3D and Explodable
I tried to assembly a 3D puzzle of a pyramid back in the day and it was way more complicated than I expected. Fans of Game of Thrones will recognize King’s Landing in sure to be challenging 3D puzzle.

Sharknado: The Board Game: Roll Your Dice, Move Your Ass

Sharknado: The Board Game: Roll Your Dice, Move Your Ass
Sometimes movies are so cheesy and terrible that they end up being cult classics. This is exactly what happened with Sharknado. I watched that movie with my daughter one night because she is both afraid and interested in both sharks and tornados.

Awesome Stop-motion Fight Scene Ignores Newton’s Law of Gravity

Awesome Stop-motion Fight Scene Ignores Newton’s Law of Gravity
Action video makers Corridor Digital have created a very cool fight sequence using stop motion techniques that make it look like gravity was thrown out the window. The scene is super cool and you will certainly want to watch the video below a few times at least.

Mystery Science Theater THREEETHOUSANNNNNDDD Heads to Netflix!

Mystery Science Theater THREEETHOUSANNNNNDDD Heads to Netflix!
I am such a big fan of Netflix – not because I can ever find any shows or movies to watch there, but for its original series. Specifically I really, really like Stranger Things. It was a bit creepy, a bit retro, and lots of fun.
