    This is the Hippopotamus Chair (plus BONUS rhino beetle, toad and whale tail ones) designed and built by Maximo Riera (previously: his octopus chair). I would love to have that in my apartment. Mostly because I don't have any chairs right now and have to sit on the floor. Wh... / Continue →

    Because you're that parent, this is a baby bottle that looks like a little beer bottle. Available for pre-order from Fred & Friends for $12, the Lil Lager Baby Bottle makes the perfect intro into beer for your youngster. After all, it's only a couple more years before they ca... / Continue →

    This is The Cool Baby, a 32-oz insulated flask hidden inside the body of a baby doll in a baby frontpack. It's currently a far-from-funded Kickstarter project that looks like it's not going to make it. I can't say I'm surprised, the fact the baby is so obviously fake ruins th... / Continue →

    This are the Adventure Time themed Dr. Martens coming out next month (available for pre-order in both men's and women's HERE). They cost $130 - $150 depending on the style and come in Jake, Finn, and little pictures of both. I have never owned a pair of Dr. Martens. Or JNCOs... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE in case you're looking for a new desktop background and/or want to see if you can spot any bunnies humping in the bushes (I had no luck). This is 'Eye Of The Waterfall', a photo taken by photographer Jarred Decker of an Oregon waterfall that looks s... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful stop-motion video created by animator Jon Rolph of an artist (presumably himself) producing a Mondrian replica by painting with LEGO bricks. You know, I wish I had the patience to make stop-motion videos because I have some GOOD IDEAS. "Let's hear them." ... / Continue →

    This is Darth Gummi, a full-scale replica of Darth Vader's helmet covered with over 1,000 Gummi Bears by artist CrummyGummy, who may or may not actually earn a living covering things with Gummi Bears (do my couch next!). Never thought you'd see a Gummi Bear Darth Vader helmet,... / Continue →

    Remember those animal face with ears panties made by Etsy store Knickerocker? Well now they're back with these cupcake panties. They have frills and look like cupcakes and cost $45 a pair. Obviously, probably not the best choice for period panties. Just being honest. I lik... / Continue →

    This is the 1977 Kenner Star Wars Millennium Falcon toy that was stuffed with the guts of a Technics SL-1200 turntable by Marco Garza. It makes the perfect record player for listening to John Williams' original Star Wars score. Or Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. It's a r... / Continue →

    The Bark Knight, get it? Because trees have bark on them. Growing up in Alabama we called that tree-skin. This is the carved wood Batman sculpture created by artist Thomas Earing, who, based on his name, I'm surprised doesn't dabble in jewelry instead. The Batman carving s... / Continue →

    This is the Death Star II fire pit created by an 84-year old grandfather to give to his grandkids for Christmas. The superweapon started as two propane tank ends welded together, then was cut into the Death Star II's iconic, unfinished shape from Return of the Jedi. So, are t... / Continue →

    This is a video detailing the build of a hobbit-hole litter box and Barad-dûr/Eye of Sauron cat-scratching tower for crazed Tolkien fan Misha and his cats Frodo and Sam (yes, seriously -- he even puts Frodo in a bag and calls him Frodo Baggins). Man, my cats would DESTROY that... / Continue →

    This is Ron Lim's cover of Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #20 recreated by Hollywood makeup artist Cris Alex, who painted a male model to appear as a 2-D comic book drawing. As you can clearly see unless you're some jerk internet commenter plagued by troll-vision, she did an amazing job... / Continue →

    This is the old CRT television cabinet that Redditor matttheman11 turned into an aquarium that looks like Jerry's apartment from Seinfeld (full step-by-step plans of the build HERE). The fish that live in the aquarium are even named after the four major cast members, plus Newm... / Continue →

    These are the Milli Chairs designed by Duffy London. They were inspired by millipedes. They cost $2,350 apiece or $3,900/pair. For reference, $2,350 is more money than I will pay for all the furniture I will ever buy in my entire life. You know what this couch cost? The pr... / Continue →

    This is the 59" X 79" Millennium Falcon Area Rug (available on Amazon for $80, ThinkGeek for $100, and probably other places for I don't know how much). It's a rug that looks like the Millennium Falcon. Now I want you to close your eyes and imagine this thing in front of a ro... / Continue →

    What do you say -- sleep between my buns? Remember that pizza bedding set? Well now there's a cheeseburger version (available HERE for around $80). I'll tell you what: instead of big spoon/little spoon, I'll pretend to be a pickle and you pretend to be a jalapeno. Then we'l... / Continue →
