Twerking, Disco, and Stormtroopers

I know as much about twerking as I do disco, which is to say only what I’ve seen on social media and So You Think You Can Dance. But these hip hoppers are amazing. Also, who knew stormtroopers could be sexy?

Honestly, I’m a bit envious of the twerkers (is that the right word?). My hips are Mennonite bred and evolutionarily made for birthing babies, not grinding on the dance floor. And no those two things are not the same. [Via Bonnie Burton at CNET]

Star Wars Display While Antiquing

Chris and I have discovered that Texans love antique malls as much as we do, and there is one in every town. Ours is, of course, the nicest. ;) Actually, it’s an awesome place and we’ve bought several pieces of furniture after some haggling and many hours of wandering through the shop.

Recently one of the corners in the shop was turned into a Star Wars display that you can still buy. Chris discovered it after hearing the Star Wars theme song being played on continuous loop. Here are some pictures I took.(Unfortunately, the lighting was not the best, sorry about the quality of the pictures.)

Nodds & Nends: Spin Offs, 3d Printing, and a Sexy Frankenstein

io9′s top 10 science fiction TV spin offs that were great in their own right. Such as Xena. Booyah!

Aaron Eckhart is a sexy sexy beast. By that I mean a sexy Frankenstein monster.

How cool is this flexible seating? Pretty cool. However, I’m not sure how comfortable it would be. It looks like cardboard.

Now for some cool book stuff. Like this pretty pretty book land! Or a cool mobile library. A great photo of raining books. I hope no books were harmed in the production of this photo. ;) All of these cool book things were found on Ned Hayes Pinterest boards. You should go follow him.

I found this deliciously delightful post about love triangles on Picture Me Reading. You will laugh, seriously. Or at least chuckle. OK. Maybe you’ll just crack a smile. Still, it is funny.

I may need to take these kid geeky costumes a little more seriously now that I have a four year old in my daily life. This R2D2 Princess costume is adorbs.

Check out this 3doodler, a 3d printing pen that is totally awesome. I WANT ONE!!!

Nodds & Nends: A Harry Potter Crochet Hook, Superhero Boutonniers, and Censored Porn

I know I have several readers who love coffee, and I found this Coffee Cup Necklace just for you guys. :)

Head on over to Book Store Book Blogger Connection to enter a giveaway for Generation V, about a new kind of Vampire and Shapeshifter.

My mother is always sending me links to Loast at e minor, which has some really cool articles. Like this one on censored porn. Basically someone cut out the people doing the grown up and left the relief. Still very explicit and NSFW.

Speaking of people getting down to their underwear or taking it off completely. Check out these Superheroes in their underwear. Including Batman and the Flash, not just Wonder Woman. [via] Or how about a gender bender cosplay of Hercules and Hades? I totes <3 it. [via] While I’ve never seen the entire Disney film, I do love Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, mostly for introducing Xena! OMG, so in love with Xena. And I just love this cosplay of Xena, Ares, and Someone Who Doesn’t Want Their Picture Taken. Cute!

But if the rowdy isn’t for you. Maybe you would enjoy these Superhero wedding boutonnieres in stead? You have to scroll down quite a bit to find the pictures of the boutonnieres, but they are worth it! [via]

But the best find by far this week, were these nerdy crochet hooks!!! She has a lightsaber one and a Harry Potter wand one. I WANT THEM SO BAD, I can’t even tell you. UGH.

Probably you have all seen this, but in case you haven’t Patrick Stewart talks about domestic violence and PTSD. [via]

Nodds & Nends: Mary Poppins, Batman and Superheroines

Mary Poppins and Burt cosplay. So cute!!! [via]

An interesting take on superheroines, they are fully clothed! The artist is Michael Lee Lunsford tumblr.

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.

Nodds & Nends: Star Wars, Skeletons, and Fire Dragons

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.

A knitted skeleton! How awesome is that. OMG! More pictures here. Thanks dragonbug for the tip. :)

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.”

And because I have a bit of a Disney obsession when finding mash-ups on the internets, check out this gorgeous rendering of Lady Crawly as a Disney character. [via Pinterest]

Star Wars Delights

Star Wars dresses of R2D2 and C-3PO via Pinterest. The C-3PO dress is only $200. For a Bridesmaids dress, that’s not bad. ;)

A Tommervick Painting of a dancing Han Solo and Princess Leia. Gorgeous movement. Unfortunately, it looks like prints are no longer available for sale. ::Sadface:: [via Pinterest]

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.
