Visit Beautiful Cloud City

The best part is, you really can visit Cloud City, only instead of Bespin this city is on Earth, in Dubai to be exact. Sometimes even real life can be awesome...

And whatever else, just remember:


Inventors, Get Inventing

These products and ads don't really exist...but they should. Click on images for original sources...

Evil Dead Lincoln-Log Playset

There was a noble attempt to get LEGO to produce this. Alas, it was deemed there wasn't enough of a market for it. Firefly gets screwed again.

How cool would this be?

If 1950s America were populated by vampires...

If only...

There are claims that this is a real vintage ad but seeing as it makes no sense, I somehow doubt it. I'd like to think it's the handiwork of some creative Futurama fan.

You can buy the poster but what we really need are the robots themselves. For protection against zombies. Really.

And my personal favourite--how I wish these existed.


In Stitches Pt 2

In my last post I shared some awesome geeky needlepoint. So this time I thought I'd offer up my latest obsession: amigurumi aka super cute crochet goodness. Click on the photos to go to the original source and enjoy (try not to squee too hard).

Proving that bow ties are cute as well as cool (click on the photo to see all eleven Doctors)

Gnome! And a free pattern too (personal use only)

In Stitches

I bring to you a subject near and dear to my heart: needlepoint, geek style! The possibilities are endless when geeky people get creative. Click on the images to get to the original source...

The Hobbit

Evil robots are scary (if you click through to the source there's another link there for the song that inspired this)

My personal motto


Donnie Darko

My Neighbor Totoro

All that those alien face-huggers really want is love

Daleks, the Doctor's nemeses
