Share

  Gather round, geeks and nerds alike, as it’s the beginning of the holiday season! Before you rush off to do any early Christmas shopping and start constantly playing Crosby or Sinatra 24/7, let’s not forget we have one more holiday to go before Christmas. That’s right, folks, I’m talking Turkey Day. Thanksgiving tends to get overlooked by people a lot of the time, probably because stores aren’t consistently pushing Thanksgiving decorations on us two months in advance and there’s not really …

Best Geeky Yarnbombs

Share

For those unfamiliar with the term, yarnbombing — also known as yarnstorming, guerilla knitting, or urban knitting — is like graffiti mixed with photobombing. Instead of spraypainting messages and artwork on walls, people knit or crochet directly over public fixtures. Diapers for naked fountain babies. Crocheted caution tape. Bolas hung over tree limbs. Octopi attacking streetlamps.  (The editor’s personal favorite.)  Entire cars covered in form-fitted car-blankets. Car-clothes. Yarn-paint? Whatever. It’s the new, weird form of graffiti. There’s even an International Yarnbombing Day. …

Dogs in Costumes: Wishing You a Bark-tastic Halloween

Share

Well folks, Halloween’s right around the corner, so naturally we’ll be seeing a lot of pictures of amazing – and not so amazing – costumes in these next couple of weeks. Costumes that have been planned for months, costumes thrown together the night before, costumes that are beautiful, costumes that are horrifying, and so on. But what about the little guys who have absolutely no say in how they’re forced to dress on Halloween? No, I’m not talking about little kids (though …

20 Incredible Kid Cosplays: Little Geeks

Share

Last month we saw another successful San Diego Comic Con come and go, and with it an abundance of wonderful cosplays of those in attendance. Kid Cosplays can be incredibly easy to mess up, but when it’s done right then it’s friggen awesome. Now, kids are far more adorable than adults, as a general rule of thumb, but this goes double for kids cosplaying. There’s just something about a kid dressed as their favorite superhero or any Star Trek character that can …

The 6 Best (Worst?) Fandom Mashups – You Decide!

Share

If I had a dollar for every fandom mashup meme, comic, joke, cross-reference, or…well, anything…ever made, I’d have a lot of dollars. Kind of makes me wish that was a legitimate way to earn money. There’s a lot out there — but some mashups are better than others. Whenever you cross fandoms, you’re venturing into dangerous territory. Sometimes it’s funny. Other times it’s more like geek heresy. Here are some of the best. And the worst. In some cases, “best” and “worst” aren’t mutually exclusive. 1. …

The Ten Greatest Comic-Con 2012 Cosplays

Share

Comic-Con is over, and some of you may have already forgotten about it.  A portion of you are saying, “YES FINALLY A COMIC-CON LIST,” and the other portion of you are saying, “IF I SEE ANOTHER POST ABOUT COMIC-CON I’M GONNA THROW UP ON YOUR VEGGIES.”  Why did I wait so long to put this post together?  I’m lazy I wanted to be sure that all of the cosplay photos from Comic-Con had been uploaded so that I could make the best …

6 Weird Gecko Facts You Never Needed To Know

Share

Geckos are one of the only green things on earth that crawls on ceilings and eats insects, the other being your mom’s version of meatloaf.  (Forget manners – I don’t want to die.)  You probably know a couple of things about geckos, but these six weird gecko facts are probably new to you, and they’re utterly pointless.  There’s really no reason for you to read this, but there was also no reason for you to stay up all night watching the royal …

10 Astounding Claw Machines To Stuff Your Money Into

Share

Claw machines do one of two things.  They either ruin a childhood or they ruin a financial standing.  In the former, parents are smart enough not to keep wasting money on the claw machine.  In the latter, parents are suckers for the alligator tears and end up pulling a Squidward.  (Click the link if you didn’t get the reference.) These ten astounding claw machines make throwing away your money more fun than it was before, and with less vomiting.  The police are …
