This cover comes from post-punk band Futureheads and their single Christmas Was Better in the 80s on Nul Records and yes, it was released this year, not in the 1980s.
The single will be released on the 19th of December 2010 and this is the cover.
Ah, Christmas is almost upon us and it’s time to bring out some crazy DIY papercraft Christmas decorations to set your tree apart from all of the rest. You can create this papercraft Steve Jobs Christmas tree ornament all by yourself and hang it on your Christmas tree to make it Apple approved!
Geeks can come up with some great ideas holiday season rolls around, and this one dude named Ric Turner has created a cool light show that you can actually play. People that happen by his house can use a controller out front and help Santa dodge snowballs.
As a kid, Santa tends to be a big part of Christmas. The more parents can do to make him seem real, the more fun and exciting it can seem. There are a lot of ways to do this, from taking your child to the mall to sit in his lap, to leaving milk and cookies for him on Christmas Eve.
Were you naughty or nice this year? Not sure? If this invention ever made it to market, you’d be able to know of Santa is on his way or not.
Thomas Cane’s 1996 patent for a Santa Claus Detector doesn’t actually sense for the presence of the jolly old chap, but it’s designed to light up when an object is placed inside the stocking.
Christmas is a time of family, friends, and decorations for folks all around the world. I put up the usual decorations with a tree, stockings, and some garland. I even throw a few lights on the house even though it’s two story and really steep.
The WTF holiday ornament of the year:
Devoted minion Nifnaks hand-stitched this felt Cthulhu tree topper. It’s practically a stuffed toy, except with a ribbon at the back, so you can attach it and make it look like a monster is devouring your Christmas tree.
Remember the Death Star? That ultimate weapon of doom that was part of the main plot in the original Star Wars movies? Well, this Christmas, how about making a small and cute version out of LEGO bricks for your Christmas tree?
This time of year, geeks all around the country start to pull out their decorations at home and some even decorate at the office. You know who we mean, that person in the cubicle next to you that has flashing lights and all sorts of decoration on their desk.
Geeks really pull out all the stops when it comes to holidays. We saw some epic Halloween stuff back in October and now that Christmas is right around the corner we are seeing some really cool holiday stuff made from LEGO bricks.
If you are a serious geek that has a hankering for some DIY LEGO style decorating for the holidays you will be glad to see these sweet new plans for a LEGO DIY Christmas tree. The thing is small so you can’t stand it in your corner, but it would look awesome on your fireplace mantle.
I have seen all sorts of things built from LEGO bricks over the years from frogs to battleships and robots. If you are a hard-core geek looking for geeky ways to decorate your Christmas tree this year, here you go.
This amazing spinning Christmas star was completed just in time to awe any passing drivers in Münich, Germany.
9,000 LEDs were superglued to a wind turbine in just under two weeks. Thanks to smart energy systems like smart grids and power highways, it only consumes as much energy as a hair dryer!
Christmas trees haven’t changed much in decades, but this innovative Christmas tree blows all of the others away, thanks to the use of a Tesla coil.
Peter Terren made a similar tree two years ago, but he upped the ante this year with a 30-foot tree using a Tesla coil.
