    This is a video of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and April O'Neil appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1990. The whole thing was pretty painful to watch, especially the songs they perform and the part around 24:20 when Oprah asks April if she likes any of the turtles more... / Continue →

    This is the retro style toaster stuffed with a Nintendo by Jarno Kotavuopio. Granted building Nintoasters isn't anything new, but Jarno took the concept one step further by creating NES game cartridge covers THAT LOOK LIKE TOAST (picture after the jump). I swear, some people:... / Continue →

    Because apparently it's turning into an impromptu animal day on Geekologie, here's the opening to DuckTales recreated with real ducks. I love ducks. When I was growing up my mom used to take me and my brother to the pond to feed bread to the ducks. Then the geese would come ... / Continue →

    Like, for real day -- it's not Photoshopped, it's all modeling. Which -- I'm not gonna lie, those hands are really freaking me out. Reminds me of when I was a kid and used to take the arms off my G.I. Joe's and swap them. We all did, amirite? Also, replace Sergeant Slaughte... / Continue →

    I know for a fact I used to eat Nintendo Cereal System growing up because I still have some Link bits stuck to the roof of my mouth. But had I known I could pawn unopened boxes of the deliciousness on eBay in 2010 for $200, I might have stockpiled the stuff (or at least saved ... / Continue →

    LG's Serie 1 Retro Classic TV doesn't just look like an old CRT television, it is an old CRT television. Except they're new. Old technology, new product. It's confusing, I know! The set features a 14-inch diagonal screen, complete with rabbit-ear antennae and chrome legs. I... / Continue →

    Let's face it, Pac-Man and fire go together like virtually anything else and fire: perfectly. And even if you gave up the rock years ago, there's still other stuff to light to light, am I right? Of course I am. Enter these 30th anniversary Pac-Man lighters. Available in thr... / Continue →
