Best part? “I honestly don’t know what any of these buttons do.” And, “I used to work for an Evil Empire, but now I work for Disney.”
I just love this discussion about Book Coverss by Aidan and Alisa on Picture Me Reading Book Club extra. It’s true that covers really influence what I think a book will be like, and when it doesn’t match the tone of the book I get annoyed. I find that a lot of urban fantasy books look very similar on the cover even if the tone of the book is different from standard urban fantasy. The cover for the Darkfever that I own looks like this. While the cover that Alisa found and posted for my discussion on it on Picture Me Reading, looked a lot more like a romance novel. The books themselves are really dark, creepy, and heart wrenching. I think none of the covers really look like what I would think the cover of the book series should look like except Shadowfever. Gothic, otherworldly, and a hint of human.
Some of my favorite places to follow on the internets are Think Geek on both Pinterest and Google+, they post some really cool things. For example this Calvin & Hobbes kid’s room is just too adorable for words. I love the simplicity of the mural. [via] I also discovered these really cool larger than life Star Wars Legos made out of wood from them. How amazing are these wooden sculptures! Just awesome. Plus sometimes I just go on to Think Geek’s product page and check out all the cool things, like this Batman Family in decals, because I have a dark sense of humor this made me giggle for a really long time.
Star Wars characters eating sushi. You can find a link at the bottom of his page that will take you to a video showing how he made the illustration.
Speaking of dragons, check out this grooms cake. Totally awesome. I want one, for an anyday cake.
And more cakes! Like this Batman cake. I am Batman. I eat cake. Nom, nom, nom. ::giggles:: (Sorry, my mind goes weird places.)
And because weddings, check out this unrealistic happily ever after about Disney and de babies. Funny story, my sister who had a baby in February sent me a picture of my nephew recently and I saw, “Aw, look at the baby.” She says, “He’s growing up so fast, we feel he isn’t a baby anymore.” I said, “A three month old kid is a baby, period.”
Adorable Star Wars plushies by DeivantArtist misscoffee. You can check out her Etsy site where she has a famous Doctor plushie pattern you can buy and then DIY. Unfortunately the Star Wars plushies are no longer available for sale. [via Geeks are Sexy]
Star Wars baby onsies that are to die for! SOOOO cute! ::SQUEE::
A Star Wars poster set that is both minimalistic and tasteful. I like it.
For book lover fans, a taste of the Wizard of Oz with C-3PO’s legs sticking out of your book on a bookmark.
And for the mens, custom cuff links of R2D2 and C-3PO. And you all thought I had forgotten you. Pffsht.
All of the things are on Etsy. All the things! And she was lost to Etsy forever.
Star Wars street art.
Star Wars How I Met Your Mother mash-up. I love mash-ups and this is a classic.
Remember the guy who made those Dinosaur heels I posted a while ago? Well he has created some R2D2 heels, and they are nearly as awesome. He has a tutorial, which again includes a welder, so that probably won’t be a project for me. [via]
In Belgium you can have dinner in the sky. Yah, I could not do this. I have a great fear of heights, and even on Ferris wheels make people hold my hand. Which does not go over so well when you are in the deep south and the person riding the Ferris wheel with you is one of your girlfriends who whispers, If anyone sees us, I’m going to be super mad. To be fair, as we walked around the Fair we were stopped every ten minutes greeting somebody we knew, so it was highly likely someone who knew us would see us. I still love riding Ferris wheels because I think they are awesome, I just warn people beforehand now, I may have a panic attack you will probably have to hold my hand.
This WiiU song by Jimmy uses samples of the WiiU menus, Super Mario Bros. U, and noises made with the WiiU itself.
Adam Levine sings about YOLO. It’s not really nerdy. The man is just way hot.
If you missed the NASA Google+ Hangout out on Friday, you can watch it all on Youtube. I caught the last 30 minutes live, and it was awesome.
These R2D2 mittens are awesome. Even though I hate mittens. I need my fingers to be able to move freely separate from each other. Especially when cab drivers nearly run me over while I’m crossing the street. . . . . Mittens just don’t work as well for some gestures Still, I would maybe give up my finger pointing and let my fingers be imprisoned in these impressive mitts.
Even more adorable is this R2D2 sweater, hat, and tutu costume. What an adorable kid! Plus I love that blue tutu, I NEED IT!!!!
But this R2D2 truffle looks the yummiest of them all.
OMG, this makes Princess Leia a frickin’ Disney Princess.
Here’s another Star Wars mash-up, this time Boba Fett and Buzz Lightyear. You can get it on a t-shirt. how cool is that?
Buzz Lightyear dressed up as Iron Man. OMG, I love this.
It is always exciting when cosplayer’s take a character to the next level, like this Mrs. Nesbitt version of Buzz Lightyear.
Sometimes I love Pinterest. For example, when someone pulls together all the geeky rings out there on the internets. And sometimes I hate Pinterest. For example, when someone pulls together all the geeky rings out there on the internets and fails to cite their source. But enjoy the rings. Because they are cool.
This Star Wars cake is awesome. I’ve been watching a lot of Cake Boss and now I really want to try to work with fondant. And this Star Wars cake may just be the inspiration that I need. But first I’m gonna try my hand at chocolate covered apples and yogurt. There is only so much time, unfortunately!
Please check out Abigail Larson’s Harry Potter gallery on deviantArt. It is just awesomely creepy and wonderful!
Apparently there is a televised Firefly reunion happening. I’m not the biggest fan of reunions. But you all have at it. [via io9]
Speaking of television shows and Whedon, he’s creating a show about SHIELD and it will have Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. I think my heart just skipped a beat. I’m a little over Whedon always killing off people, so I’m wary about the show, but Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, that does get me a little excited. Not gonna lie.
Halloween costumes are just around the corner. I have and idea to make a fairy queen with an old wedding dress at a hipster store (really I don’t know what else to call Ragstock, it’s like a thrift store and a cheaper Urban Outfiters all in one), a glue gun, ribbons and jewels, and some butterfly wings. I’ve also butted my way onto a date for trick-or-treating with my rent-a-kid’s family. Her mother called me a dork, but you know, that’s fair. I’m not the only one with costumes on the brain, check out these costumes for Star Wars droids via The Mary Sue and io9′s Halloween costume show week article.
Even mailboxes like to dress up on occasion.
Stephanie at Read in a Single Sitting pointed me over to another article about “Fake” Geek Girls by Adrienne Kress and how one woman has had to deal with people treating her like a poser wanting to get attention when all she has wanted to do was share in the wonder that is being around and interacting with other geeks. I like how she points out that having other interests as well as geeky ones is a balance she actually strives for, and I wish more people who count themselves as geeks would do so too. Maybe if people got out from behind their controllers and exercised, practiced meditation, or hung out with people in real life they would have a bigger perspective on the world and not feel the need to hate on other people. And after reading the article all I can say is, ‘And this is why I don’t go to cons.’
