Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of fun and inspired Christmas trees based on video games, science fiction and other pop culture memes. So I figured that this holiday season, I’d put together a compilation of some of my favorites of all time.
One of the biggest buzzwords in finance and investing these days is “cryptocurrency.” These tiny packets of computer-signed, highly-secure, and highly-elusive data represent value, and are trading at ever more insane rates of exchange due to their rarity.
This Cookie Monster tree surprisingly has no cookies hanging from its branches – probably because he ate them all. Decorate this tree with cookies all you want, but they will disappear as soon as you put them on.
Redditor enhydra-lutris saw the potential for true awesomeness in this blue artificial tree and created a monster.
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.
Each Halloween, I get these grand ideas of making an awesome jack-o-lantern. The problem is that I am not particularly good at carving pumpkins. That has led me to try all sorts of tools and patterns with little success.
The problem with the patterns I get from Wal-Mart is that they never stick very well with tape, making them hard to trace onto the pumpkin.
LEGO is a magnificent invention, and one of the coolest toys in the world. The little brick can deliver the most pain known to man when you step on one, and be used to build just about anything in any size you can imagine.
The Christmas season is in full swing with Thanksgiving next week. That means all those decorations that have been in stores since October will start showing up in full force at homes in your neighborhood. If you work in a cubicle and want to make it merry and bright, there are plenty of decorations out there.
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.
How much would you pay for a ready-to-eat dinner? Most people wouldn’t pay more than five or ten bucks, but this luxurious food platter by Chef Charlie Bigham might just convince a couple of folks to change their minds – and their perceptions – of what TV dinners are.
The holidays are upon us and it's time to hunker down and get our shopping done. But there are so many choices in the market these days, it's hard to decide what to buy. We're here to help, with a list of 10 gadget gifts which not only are great on their own, but help cut the cord, and move us towards a truly wireless world.
Christmas time is here and if you haven’t decorated yet, get your Scroogeish buttocks to work. If you are a geek, more specifically a Star Trek geek, this is the best wreath that you could ever hang on your door.
Christmas is here and if you think you might need to send out Christmas cards this year, and you happen to be a geek get your credit card ready. Artist P.J. McQuade is selling some very cool Christmas cards over on Etsy.
Gamers, get into the spirit of the holidays with these tiny but detailed ornaments that look like controllers from video game consoles of yore. There’s an Atari 2600 joystick, a Sega Genesis gamepad, a NES gamepad and a PlayStation controller.
Fog is a big part of any good Halloween festivities. You have to have fog. It’s the stuff ghouls and ghosts rise out of. Well if you want to have a cool fog effect for your next halloween party and don’t want to pay a lot of money, you can make a fog machine out of a pumpkin.
Halloween isn’t even here yet, and here I am talking about Christmas already. Forget those traditional ornaments like angels, snowmen and Santas. Geek up your tree this year and deck the halls with some Nintendo spirit.
