Being that I am from Texas, all my childhood memories of the beach revolve around Galveston, Texas. That means Gulf of Mexico water as dirty as a mud puddle, and sand roughly the temperature of the surface of the Sun.
We have this Mini Australian Shepherd that is my daughter’s dog. That naturally means he is really my dog because I have to take care of him. He is pure, fuzzy evil. His name is Jet because he runs literally everywhere no matter if he can’t stop his full-on doggy sprint before he smashes into something.
I’ve often wondered what happened to the Imperial engineer who designed the AT-AT. I mean, as you build this massive walking battleship of death and come to find out on its first deployment, all it takes to destroy it is some rope.
Look at these slippers, they are creepy, cool, and weirdly ’80s. They are modeled after the ‘Ello worm from Labyrinth, Jim Henson’s classic 1980s fantasy. It seems like everytime I turn around there is some Labyrinth oddity out there.
I would say taste the rainbow, but that’s Skittles’ slogan. Starburst’s slogan is apparently “Unexplainably Juicy.” So would this outfit be Unexplainably Juicy Couture? Emily Seilhamer is clearly an awesome seamstress. She wove together this amazing dress out of thousands of Starburst wrappers.
This is the droid you are looking for when it comes to carrying cash and cards. Just think of your jeans as an X-Wing and dock this bad boy in your back pocket so he can help you navigate throughout the day.
Do you heart R2-D2? Of course you do. He is the best droid ever. Much better than BB-8! We all love this little droid. Well, this R2-D2 Heart Crossbody Bag is the perfect accessory for anyone looking to show their love for the astromech droid.
Of all of the consoles I’ve owned over the years, the one I think I was most passionate about was the SEGA Dreamcast. It offered state-of-the-art hardware, groundbreaking graphical capabilities, and most of all an amazing slate of truly special games.
With the new Alien movie Alien: Covenant headed to theaters in just a couple of weeks, the Alien buzz machine is starting to heat up with all kinds of cool stuff. One of the more awesome things I’ve seen so far are these Reebok sneakers, which are inspired by the big face-off between Ripley and the Alien Queen in Aliens.
Costume designer Olivia Mears aka “Taco Belle” aka “AvantGeek” is at it again with a cool dress that looks like a pizza. When she’s standing up in her pizza dress it looks like a ball gown of some sort.
Man, I miss playing around on my old Commodore 64 computer. I never really knew how to code or anything, but with the help of popular computer magazines I could type in one of the many fun programs within the pages.
My Mamaw (that’s grandmother for you yankees out there) used to knit all the time. She was big on making blankets with yarn that had enough open space to be terrible at keeping you warm, and were itchy enough to drive you mad.
We like cosplay around here, despite the fact that I am not much for dressing up (I even shun pants). People who like to go to conferences like ComicCon or WonderCon are a bit more enthusiastic about getting dressed up than I am.
It looks like we have a real life Tony Stark on our hands. Inventor Richard Browning and his team at start-up, Gravity Industries, have created the Daedalus. It is basically a special suit that turns its wearer into a flying hero.
