Who doesn’t like waffles? I could eat my way out of a roomful of ’em. And what about role-playing games? Well of course, any good geek loves those. So why not combine both of these divine pursuits with a single purchase?
These days, all kinds of desktop playthings take advantage of magnetic levitation, from speakers, to gadget chargers, to clocks. Now, you can have your own personal hot air balloon that uses magnets, not hot air to float.
Despite numerous Star Wars films being released in the 3+ decades since its release, The Empire Strikes Back is still the best movie in the saga for many of us. Sure, The Force Awakens was very good, but it’s a tall hill to climb to best the 1980 classic.
While you could decorate your table with a bowl of fruit (real or fake), I like the idea of this shiny golden pop art banana lamp so much more. It looks so good that it just might attract monkeys into your place, and they could make a mess of the joint.
These banana lamps were designed by Belgium’s Studio Job and produced by Seletti.
Just in time for Force Friday (didn’t we just have May the Fourth?), LEGO has revealed a new assortment of 11 kits for fans of the Star Wars universe. The kits are all based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and include some brand new vehicle variants and characters – though they’ve been careful not to offer up much in the way of plot spoilers at this point.
We’ve all seen the “Many Bags Look Alike” signs at the airport luggage carousel. You could tie a colorful ribbon around your nondescript suitcase, but chances are somebody else on your flight had the same idea.
Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger will always be associated with Rocky III. After all, it was the theme song for 1982 boxing flick, in which Sly throws down with Mr. T. Given its era, it only make sense that the track would sound pretty darned good played on old computer equipment.
Paweł Zadrożniak’s computerized band is known as The Floppotron, and it’s known for playing many hits, using its array of old floppy drives, hard drives, scanners, and other bits of vintage electronic gear.
Would you like fries with that? Well, then, okay. Here you go. These jumbo plush french fries from Kidrobot are simply adorable, and will look great hanging out in your living room, alongside your giant plush hamburger.
The Yummy Frankie Fries measure about 16″ tall, so you can definitely call them super-sized.
When it comes to making pasta, there are few things I dislike more than watery tomato sauce. The trick is to make sure your noodles are properly strained to get out all the excess water before you mix them with your red gravy.
Power up your gadgets in the cutest way possible, with these adorable battery packs based on Marvel’s superheroes. They look a whole lot like Funko’s Dorbz figures, but each of these cartoony characters packs a 2,600 mAh battery inside.
Japan is home to some wonderful creations. One of the more popular franchises of the past decade has to be Hatsune Miku, a fully digital J-Pop musician, whose vocals are created synthetically. The vocaloid singer’s voice has been featured in over 100,000 songs, has sold out digital concerts around the world, and even has her own GT series race car.
It’s been awhile since there was a good King Kong movie. But I don’t think the solution is bigger and badder visual effects. I think the problem is Kong himself. The Planet of the Apes movies have cornered the market on CGI monkeys, so I think that the studios need to do something different for the next Kong reboot.
Operation was one of my favorite board games growing up – because it really wasn’t a board game at all, but an opportunity to play around with electricity and pretend to be a surgeon. So what could be better than combining this fun game than an edible version made from cake?
That’s exactly what Ann Reardon from How to Cook That did, creating a this tasty Operation cake that really works.
I don’t know what it is about horned beetles, but I find them quite creepy. I think it must have been that scene from The Mummy where one crawled under the guy’s skin, or when thousands come crawling out of the ground in The Mummy Returns.
For many of us, summer means heat and sweat. And there’s no better way to cool off on a hot summer day than a plunge in the pool. But if you’re going to float around in there, you might as well look like you’re having fun.
There are few more rank, nasty, and vile characters in the history of film than Jabba the Hutt. This disgusting fat worm of a creature took our princess hostage and subjected her to horrible humiliation, and kept a frozen Han Solo in his collection.
