    This is a series of photographs from Mineralblu Photography of some Twinzik cosplayers dressed as Simon Petrikov (the future Ice King) and Marceline from Adventure Time. Touching, isn't it? You? You should be not touching right now. Put your hands down. I SAID PUT YOUR HAN... / Continue →

    This is the AK-47 that guitar maker Jimmy DiResta turned into a fully functional guitar for Wycleaf Jean. It carries a powerful message. One about...Haiti? Okay so maybe I don't know what the message is, or if there even is one. Not everything has to make some sort of socia... / Continue →

    EXP Restaurant + Bar is a Vancouver restaurant and bar (not just a tricky name) with a video game theme, including the food and drink menus. I don't know about you, but I would eat and drink there, and, knowing me, probably try to make small talk with the guy pissing at the ur... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE. This is a beautiful composite shot of yesterday's 'ring of fire' eclipse as viewed from Cape York, Australia. So that's what all the kangaroos were watching yesterday. Me? I didn't watch anything but my little sister for two hours while my mom wen... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a solider getting sucked out of the back of an airplane/helicopter after his reserve chute catches the wind. One second he's there, the next he's gone. Kind of like my online dating dates when we finally meet at a restaurant. *looking around* Was it... / Continue →

    Ah yes, the old no-smile, creeper combo. This is a series of officially licensed Star Trek USS Enterprise uniform pajamas available from ThinkGeek. They come in Spock blue, Kirk gold, Scotty red and cost forty bones for a top and bottom. They make the perfect PJ's to ease yo... / Continue →

    This is a nearly 30-minute Pokemon themed ballet performance. If I told you I watched it all I would be a liar, and if there's one thing I'm not, it's a liar. I'm actually a dying breed -- one of the last remaining Keepers of the Real. Think of me as that knight at the end o... / Continue →

    This is a small series of handmade high-heelsby footwear designer/cobbler Kobi Levi. Each represents a different Disney lady-villain. This is the Evil Queen here, but there are Maleficent and Ursala models after the jump. Unfortunately, there aren't any Victoria's Secret mod... / Continue →

    This is a video of Brandon trying a roller coaster simulator with an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and earphones on. Brandon probably shouldn't have sat in the front of the coaster because he doesn't do so hot. Lots of stumbling around and almost breaking his buddy's co... / Continue →

    This is allegedly the first on-scene shots of Megan Fox wearing April O'Neil's yellow jacket for the new Ninja Turtle movie produced by Michael Bay. If you can't tell by the look on my face right now, I'm pretty disappointed. "Plus there's popcorn in your hair." I know, I pu... / Continue →

    Remember that first-person lightsaber battle? Me neither, but then I watched it again, and now I HALF remember it. Like a dream, if dreams are things I wrote about on Geekologie, which they're not but sometimes I CHOOSE to write about mine anyways. A man chooses, a slave obe... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jeff Bliss of Duncanville High School in Texas preaching to his teacher about how she needs to actually teach the class instead of just handing out reading packets everyday and telling the students, 'This is just my paycheck.' He definitely does a good job o... / Continue →

    This is a SteadiDrone octocopter specially modified to deliver beers to attendees at the upcoming Oppikoppi music festival in South Africa. You just order a brewski via iPhone app (sorry Android users -- looks like you're DD), then the copter drops a parachuted beer to your lo... / Continue →

    This is the $40 Vaporite Grindrite watch. At first glance it just looks like an ultra high quality Quantum wristwatch. But at SECOND GLANCE, and provided somebody has removed the watch face, it's actually a weed grinder or mini storage space. Not both though, you have to spe... / Continue →

    This is 'Screengrab', a video short made using multiple printed screencaps of some dude's hands, which then become part of the movie. At least I think -- I think that's what I watched. Honestly, I have no clue. Films are always hard for me and more often than not I'm left as... / Continue →

    With graduation right around the corner, what better way to celebrate your scholastic achievement than with the same thing that made it take six years to get your bachelor's degree in the first place: booze. Thankfully, Dominique over at FoodBeast has got you covered with this... / Continue →

    This is the Clip Bag from designer Peter Bristol. It looks like one of those black binders that you always pinch on the side of your finger to prove how tough you are to yourself. Oh yeah, 15-seconds, I'm a f***ing gladiator. Peter says the bags are currently not being manuf... / Continue →

    This is the triforce family crest (kamon) that Twitter user mahosyouzyo allegedly created after a relative passed away and was approached by her family requesting an updated design. You, uh, might want to be careful about which ocarina songs you go tooting around that memorial... / Continue →

    Nobody asked Tumblr user ishipitlikeups to prom. So what did she do? Stay at home crying and trying to beat Contra without using the Konami code like I did? Nope -- she made a little silk tuxedo for her TI-84 calculator and took it instead. I knew I should have taken my Tra... / Continue →

    Meet Mr. Balls, the anti-testicular cancer mascot dreamed up by the Brazilian nonprofit Associação de Assistência às Pessoas com Câncer. In case you're blind and can't see the picture, he looks exactly like the kind of angry giant nuts that chase you around in nightmares. Bas... / Continue →

    This is a video showing some prototype footage of The Stomping Land, a multiplayer survival game about a tribe of people who live on an island and hunt and eat dinosaurs as their primary food source. The only problem is, after you kill a little dinosaur and start skinning it f... / Continue →

    This is the jacket made from sewn together Ziplock bags by Jaya's friend Diane. It...might be the most magnificent jacket I've ever seen and that's saying a lot because I used to own a pleather Member's Only windbreaker. The only thing that sucks about this one is that bullie... / Continue →

    This is a long-form Audi commercial featuring Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto in a race of the Spocks to see who can get to the country club first. Really -- racing to the country club? Anybody caught RACING to the country club, ESPECIALLY anyone under the age of 65, needs to... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of Shaolin Warriors doing all sorts of kicks and punches and flips, all filmed in slow motion. Plus one of them breaks a metal bar over his head at the end. I'd hate to pull the short straw for that stunt. Honestly, I'd hate to pull the short straw... / Continue →

    This is the Banana Bunker, a banana transportation device that prevents smashing and bruising. It's not to be confused with a banana hammock, which is what bananas relax in on the beach, or a banana bungalow, which is where bananas go when they want to get out of the sun but i... / Continue →

    These are a series of shots from Bioshock Infinite and Dishonored compiled by Reddtior Easy_Ease showing some of the artistic, theme and gameplay similarities between the two. I don't really want to ruin anything for you if you haven't played them, but I beat both and was goin... / Continue →

    This is a test video of what's allegedly the first fully 3-D printed plastic gun (previously: an AR-15 with 3-D printed receiver) firing a bullet and not shattering to pieces in the shooter's hands like I expected. PROTIP: Never bring a plastic fork to a knife fight. I've nev... / Continue →

    1,700 minifigs! This is the 150,000-piece LEGO recreation of the Battle of Helm's Deep from Lord of the Rings. It was built by Rich-K & Big J and contains over 1,700 minifigs, which is probably more minifigs than I could eat in my lifetime, but believe me, I'm still going to ... / Continue →

    These are the Kaori-chan and Shuntaro-kun robots developed by CrazyLabo and the Kitakyushu National College of Technology in Japan. Equipped with air-quality monitors, Kaori-chan (the lady) sniffs your breath and Shuntaro-kun (the dog) your feet, and respond accordingly. And ... / Continue →

    Seen here celebrating not having to eat through a straw, the Stormtrooper and Ghostbuster attacked by 31-year old Adam Barnes dance outside Coast City Comics on Free Comic Book Day. The two were attacked at 2:30PM by a drunk Barnes, who stands 6'4", 300-pounds and clearly has ... / Continue →

    This is a video of some dudes demonstrating their custom built, 24-bottle bottle opener on a case of beer. Unfortunately for them, it leaves four unopened, underwhelming audiences worldwide and causing at least one blogger to question if we'll ever be able to open 24 beers at ... / Continue →

    This is a brief video showing an anti-child abuse ad created by the Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk Foundation in Spain. At an adult's glance, it looks like a normal child's face, but when viewed at an upward angle because you're a kid under 4-foot 5-inches tall, it re... / Continue →

    This is one of the custom made lion hats sold by Etsy shop Nestanest that makes your cat look like a little lion. And who hasn't dreamed of having a pet lion? Nobody whose dreams I want to hear about, that's for sure. Obviously, the hats will look best on an orange cat, but ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a drop of liquid mercury reacting to different audio frequencies. Sometimes it makes a blob, sometimes it makes a doughnut, and sometimes a starfish. But it ALWAYS makes its friends feel welcome and wanted because that's what good friends do, unlike mine wh... / Continue →

    These are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sculptures made entirely out of colored twist-ties by DeviantARTist justjake54. Leonardo and Raphael and Michelangelo are all looking in top shape, but Donatello, I'm not sure what happened to him. Plus I thought he was holding a pre... / Continue →

    Greenheart Games is a small independent video game publisher that just released their first title, Game Dev Tycoon, last week. But alongside the legitimate version, they also uploaded a torrent containing a cracked version of the game. Fast forward to later that day when pira... / Continue →

    This is a video of laser lover and Youtuber AnselmoFanZero showing off the Dead Space plasma cutter replica he made. For the record, I've never played Dead Space because it's rated M for Mature and my mom says I'm anything but. Still, a pretty impressive build and the lasers ... / Continue →
