    This is a video of a computer program created by Michael Birken that can play Tetris and create pictures of video game characters in the process. How? I'm glad you asked. And even gladder there's a quote to copy because I am BAD AT EXPLAINING THINGS. One time my nephew aske... / Continue →

    In other pizza news, this is the Tetris pizza made by denacem to celebrate Tetris' 29th birthday tomorrow (June 6th). Not a bad way to celebrate a birthday! Of course some cake and ice cream would be nice too, but whatever, it's not like the game ever gives me the straight st... / Continue →

    This is the birthday cake made by Wedding Cakes By Nicole featuring Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Tetris and Frogger scenes on each side, and Pong on the top. And if you think I wouldn't peel all those characters off and eat them you are wrong. Dead wrong. If you were a video game y... / Continue →

    Because I don't discriminate between Post-It animations and chalk animations (I'll watch anything that pisses away two minutes at work), this is a 3-D chalk art stop-motion from Chris Carlson (of 3-D Snake game fame) of Tetris being played. Amazingly, the player manages to set... / Continue →

    This is a One brand Perfect Fit condom marketed to dudes with long rectangular dingalings. I think. I don't know, it has Tetris on the packaging. On my package? A bunch of cotton-balls I glued there because it's dressing up as a rabbit tonight. I'm going to be a magician. ... / Continue →

    This is a pumpkin carved and lit to play Tetris. You can actually PLAY Tetris on it, using the stem as a joystick. You can read about the whole build process HERE, which was way more complicated than just taping a Game Boy to a pumpkin like I would have done. I dunno, it jus... / Continue →

    This is a $280 Tetris shapes (tetrominos) pillow set from Etsy seller StarGallery. If you're really just hoping for the long stick one that's TOO DAMN BAD because they're only sold as a set. Thankfully, since my mom taught me how to sew like the little daughter she never had,... / Continue →

    Software developer and Geekologie reader Greig Stewart performed a laser-harp rendition of the Tetris theme for an audition on Britain's Got Talent that he composed himself on a Game Boy and NES. This is that performance. It was enough to get him through to the semi-finals, b... / Continue →

    What do you get when you combine 10-pounds of gummi bears, a love for oldschool video games, and waaaaaay too much free time on your hands? A chubby kid playing Nintendo for 8-hours straight. This video. Or -- OR -- a Mario costume made entirely out of gummi bears. Just lic... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're determined to count how many individual blocks make up each heart (SPOILER: 95. I counted -- twice). Seen here looking suspiciously veinless (VAMPIRES!) two lovas show off their matching Tetris tattoos as a sign of...something. Love ... / Continue →

    Tetris Link is a board game (if you can call it that) coming out later this year that combines everybody's two favorite things: the name Tetris, and the game Connect Four. The object is to get three of your pieces touching (think a really blocky ménage à trois), which will s... / Continue →

    This is a video of Oliver Taylor (who I think we can all agree looks like an Oliver), who spent his winter break learning how to play the Tetris theme on Link's ocarina ACTUALLY IN OCARINA OF TIME. "You will never get that time back!" aside, he does a pretty amazing job. Exce... / Continue →

    You thought they were made in a factory, didn't you? Well they kind of are. THE ALIEN PAIN FACTORY! That's right -- tetrominoes are actually Space Invader penises. Who knew? I mean besides me which is why I've always considered Tetris the most erotic Game Boy game. You he... / Continue →

    Remember Super Mario Crossover -- the Super Mario Bros you can play as different characters? Well like all great things, there's always some stuff that has to be cut out of the final product. Take the book I wrote for example: it's nothing but a dust jacket. But did that sto... / Continue →
