    Note: I moved this post up from last year (and the year before) because Thanksgiving should be scary. This is the Cthulhu inspired Christmas dinner made by Texan Rusty Eulberg and his wife. It consists of a bacon layered turkey (although I'm using the term 'layered' very ligh... / Continue →

    Because the Galactic Empire doesn't care if Thanksgiving has passed or not, this is the lifesize TIE fighter light display created by a friend of Imgur user guitarfarts (who presumably sounds like a Nickelback cover band). It is most impressive. I've been brainstorming what k... / Continue →

    This is the 2015 Whisky Advent Calendar ($190, they also make bourbon, gin, rum, cognac, vodka, mezcal and tequila versions, as well as premium versions with nicer booze that cost even more). Behind each of the 24 doors is a little 1-ounce bottle of different whisky. Personal... / Continue →

    Every year UK-based department store John Lewis puts out a ridiculously well produced Christmas commercial to advertise their stores. This is this year's. I also embedded the last two year's commercials in case you really feel like crying at your desk today. Why not? Maybe ... / Continue →

    Note: If you haven't already seen the Japanese trailer for The Force Awakens with EXTRA SCENES, go watch that over at IWatchStuff. Because what good is a movie everybody is excited about if you can't use it to sell batteries, this is a Star Wars themed Duracell commercial. It... / Continue →

    This is an already funded Kickstarter campaign for two (one raw, one painted) Krampus themed beer steins. $48 gets you the raw style when they ship next May, and $60 the painted version. I'm having a hard time deciding which one I want, which is why I just did Eeny, Meeny, Mi... / Continue →

    This is the Cthulhu Christmas wreath created by Maika Keuben (of Cthulhu Christmas tree fame). It's the perfect wreath to let carolers know they've come to the wrong house to sing at. But by the time they realize it, it will be too late, and the tar and feathers will already ... / Continue →

    Remember world-class performance artist Sara X's Mozart inspired breast dance? Well now she's back for the holidays with a titillating performance of Jingle Bells. I think we can all agree, it's just about as perfect as a video can be without being the trailer for that new Ju... / Continue →

    This is the clever Groot head Christmas tree topper designed and made by DeviantARTist witchcraftywolfen using a "CD spool cover, foam, plastic eyes, Crayola Model Magic, pipe cleaners, and acrylic paint." Wow, great job, MacGyver. But can you diffuse THIS BOMB? "That's a wr... / Continue →

    So, you got invited to a friend's ugly Christmas sweater party. Ask if you can bring a plus one (I'm trying to meet new people). Then order one of these Ugly Christmas Suits from Shinesty and be the talk of the party. And not just because you brought a stranger who's rifflin... / Continue →

    This is the Tactical Holiday Stocking available from ThinkGeek ($20). It's a great way to let Santa know the kind of stuff you'd like your stocking to be stuffed with: guns, knives, ammo, spray cheese, airplane bottles, fireworks, lotto scratchers, nudie magazines -- all the s... / Continue →

    This is the £35 (~$55) Street Fighter sweater available from Yellow Bulldog (and Amazon UK and probably other places but that's up to you, I'm not your personal shopper). The company stresses that the design is KNIT and not just PRINTED, because that's important when you're lo... / Continue →

    This is the Kickstarter for Silent Night Of The Living Dead, a zombie themed nativity scene featuring Mary and Joseph fighting off zombie wise men and a shepherd boy to protect precious baby Jesus. Donating £50 (~$82) will get you a set in time for Christmas this year if they ... / Continue →

    Happy holidays! I hope everyone is having a wonderful time with friends and family or calling around town to find the one bar that's already open. I'll be around for the next week writing a little when I can and fielding questions from my aunts about why I haven't settled dow... / Continue →

    This is a video of helicopter pilot Dan Clark showing just how fast he can pick up felled Christmas trees and throw them in the back of a truck in Oregon. He's pretty quick. I'm not sure how I'd feel about being the guy that has to hook up the next tree to Dan's cable. Also,... / Continue →

    This is Christmas Tinner, a (presumably fake) Christmas dinner in a can from UK based video game retailer GAME (previously: this 12-course meal in a can). They have the product on their site like you can buy it, but it says they're sold out and to 'Check Back Christmas 2014'. ... / Continue →

    These are a series of LEGO Christmas ornaments/decorations made by LEGOManiac Chris McVeigh. He has the parts lists and illustrated instructions of how to construct each on his website. Don't feel like ordering the pieces from LEGO yourself? Then buy the sets directly from C... / Continue →

    Because it's been Christmas season since mid-October, here's an animated Stegosaurus Christmas lawn ornament. The $140 dino's neck and tail move as he spreads Christmas cheer throughout the neighborhood, at least until some young punks steal it and set it on fire in the woods.... / Continue →

    This are Anthony Herrera's 2013 designs for Star Wars paper snowflakes. You may recall his 2011 designs from this article. Apparently I missed his 2012 ones, but I included them in this post so we're all caught up. Nobody wants to be behind. Unless they're having sex in a ho... / Continue →

    So Christmas is over and people are already back to being their regular jerkbag selves, but before I put Santa to bed here's the R2-D2/C-3PO lamp built by artist Gordon Tarpley that was inspired by the sexy lady leg lamp in A Christmas Story. Never seen A Christmas Story? Joi... / Continue →
