Normally, fire-breathing dragons and Christmas trees don’t mix. Those dry pine trees will catch fire and set your house ablaze in an instant. While the Khaleesi might survive the flames, your gifts under the tree won’t.
Halloween is going to be here before you know it, and that means It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown will be airing soon. In the leadup to that airing and all the kids out begging for free candy, it’s about time to decorate your house.
I was at Wal-Mart yesterday because I just really felt like standing in line at a massive store with 57 checkout lanes, but on only two open. I noticed that hoards of Halloween candy and decoration are already out, so I bought some candy (for the kids mind you).
If you are a big Deadpool fan you will want to check this out. Yep, this is a bust of Deadpool dressed as Julius Caesar, complete with his gold laurel wreath headband. Deadpool’s got his swords on back, and even though they don’t look anything like the swords from the movie, they’re still pretty cool.
Each of the busts are limited edition and hand painted by Gentle Giant LTD.
Each Halloween, we see all sorts of cool carved pumpkins, but we rarely see any Christmas trees that aren’t real or faux trees. This year we have run across a couple interesting “chemis-trees.” These have the look of a Christmas tree, but they are made using beakers, tubes, and cylinders that are attached to a pole by beaker holders.
The result are two Christmas trees that any science geek will love.
I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that in the The Force Awakens, Carrier Fisher won’t be wearing her famous gold bikini. But if your girlfriend is willing to wear one, you’ll need a Jabba to go with it, and then you can play Luke.
It’s that time, Christmas decorators. It’s time to get your hands on the geekiest of decorations and start putting up your Christmas tree. You could go for plain white or colored lights, but the geek in you wants something cooler.
Each year when Christmas rolls around there are a few films that I like to watch. One of them is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, because Chevy Chase. The other is A Christmas Story with Ralphie and his quest to get a Red Rider BB Gun, even though he very nearly shoots his eye out.
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.
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.
