This Is The Sexiest Star Wars Print I've Seen In A Long Time...A Long Time...

Click to Embiggen

Created by artist Cat Staggs. I can totally see this painted on the side of a ship. Or on my wall. Either one ;-)

2011 Warcraft New Years Resolutions ;-)

I love The Daily Blink.

And there are so many things on this list that I find awesome and hilarious, I had to repost it here.


p.s. If Felicia Day can get him to Nathan Fillion to Alan Tudyk, I kinda wanna just stop at the hugging Nathan Fillion part. But that's just me. ::grin::

Monday Squee: What Do Geek Girls Want For Christmas?

This pic was too cute not to share.

This is the lovely @amy_geek with her brand new Star Wars Galactic Heroes AT-AT Imperial Walker Vehicle from Hasbro.

I can't tell which of them is more adorable ;-)

The Fifth Element In Minimates. Want!


It's another day here in Los Angeles, and to quote Leeloo "Rain falls."

So, in honor of Day 6 of the Great Rain, I thought I'd give a little love to these custom minimates based on The Fifth Element.

Made by Luke Porter, they're good enough to make me wish they were real. Especially the Diva. I'll admit. I like the Diva best. ::grin::

Idle thought.

My middle of the night wander had me awake at 4:45.

Hopped on Wow, got a couple dailies done and got the server reset message.

15 minutes wait.

So, here I sit, by only the light of the laptop at 5:25, listening to the rain fall outside and catching up pn Google Reader.

It's nicely calm.

...and not something I could have imagined when I was a kid.

Well, save for the rain. I do love the sound of the rain.

Monday Squee: Kissing Disease You Can Give Your Friends.

I'm a sucker for cute things, but when you make cute things that are also scientific -- I'm totally hooked.

These are the Petri Dish Plush Giant Microbes from ThinkGeek. I opted for the Kissing Disease version.




I should mention, they're also on sale. ::grin::

There are days...

...that are hard. Today is one of them.

I know it's silly, but I just dealt with an hours worth of guild drama with people I play Warcraft with.

I cried during most of it.

I have no idea if that makes me a geek or just too damn sensitive.

But, it still sucks.

I need a good diversion.

Dear Annie Barrett at the Entertainment Weekly...(a rant)

Maybe I'm showing my age a bit here, and if I am, oh well.

Will Ferrell & John C. Reilley have a new video over at Funny or Die for the holidays. It's a parody of the original David Bowie/Bing Crosby duet of Peace on Earth and Little Drummer Boy from back in the 70's.

I liked it. That's not at issue here. I understand parody and this was really well done. Not to mention, highlights them as singers.

But what irritates me is this reaction by Annie Barrett over at Entertainment Weekly.

Using terms like "eerie" and "mind blowing" makes it sound like this was some sort of joke when Bowie and Crosby did it back in the 70's. It wasn't. It was a holiday special (which we seemed to have a lot of back then) and, while it was an odd pairing (there's a Washington Post story that has a lot of detail on how it came together), it created one of the best duets around.

Y'know, Annie. It's easy to mock something as "weird" or "eerie" when you likely aren't old enough to know what it meant to those of use who were there or understand that a lot of us watching knew Crosby had died just before this aired, so it had additional meaning. But I'm sorry you don't get just how cool this duet was for us who saw this the first time around. Because it was really something special.

/rant

Now, that said, here's both of them. The singing's better on the original, but Ferrell and Reilley are pretty kick ass.

Doctor Who Dalek Car Decals. OMG.

There are times that I feel a little left out or wistful when I see those family car decals on minivans because, since I never plan to have kids, I have no reason to have one on my car.

Until now.



Lemme do a close up. ::grin::



p.s. A friend of mine snapped this while he was on vacation in Florida. I have no idea who makes them, but I want them. So if you have any info, please, please, please let me know.

Update: Found this on eBay. Looks like the one ;-)


GGD Wishlist: Doctor Who iPhone Cases.

I'm not awake yet, but I saw these and wanted to share.

These new Doctor Who iPhone cases from Underground Toys may actually make me buy an iPhone.

A New Drunken Geek Party Game? I Think So ;-)

This made me laugh. Then it made me want to go get my dice.

It may be the most awesome new drunken geek party game ever.


::grin:: I loved me some John Kovalic. Geeks Rule.

Hot, Female Warcraft "Pro" Explains "Cataclysm" (My brain melts) Updated*

I..um..I..seriously?

Part of me wants to get angry and rant about the fact that videos like this are one of the reasons people don't take girls playing Warcraft seriously.

But part of me is so utterly fascinated that this even exists that I just...can't..think.



Someone has to tell me who this chick is. I'm betting she's some sort of porn star trying to "titillate" her male followers. But I think porn stars are smarter than this young lady.

Thanks for the tip @TheSpeakman. I'll kill you later for hurting my head.

Update at 3:00: Wow, news already. Apparently this was real. She actually got mentioned on Attack of The Show and she's happy about it.


I Can Buy Happiness: It's An Electronic Butterfly In A Jar

Sometimes something can be so simple, yet amazingly beautiful.

This is the Electronic Butterfly In A Jar from ThinkGeek.



It's a butterfly. In a jar. That you can watch and enjoy and won't die. You don't have to trap it and you don't have to feed it and you get to feel like a little kid all at the same time.

It's also only 20 bucks and come in 4 different butterfly varieties.

Geek. Girl. Joy.

Hang Over Monday: Grant Imahara Can Build Me A Robot That Wears A Bra That Shoots Grappling Hooks?

One of the things I like best about Twitter is the fact that, if you're in the mood to chat, you're usually able to find an interesting conversation. If you add the fact that I follow a bunch of geek girls like Star Wars blogger Bonnie Burton, awesomely naughty fellow Nerd Approved bloggers Amy Ratcliffe &  Jill Pantozzi, and Mythbuster Grant Imahara -- well, odds are good that the conversation will go from "interesting" to raucous in no time.

Since I'm really not awake enough for a "serious" post and there's a recap of some of the real life antics later -- I'll just link a few tweets, suggest a couple hash tags and let you guys decide who did what ;-)

Tweet most likely to get @grantimahara the most "reminder" tweets and product suggestions:



Hashtags that will likely get used as evidence: #geekgirls #geeklingerie

Best shameless request for product that just might work:



Tweet most likely to inspire. ;-)


And, finally, the tweet that sums it all up for me.



Much love and many thanks to @bonniegrrl, @grantimahara, @amy_geek, @thenerdybird & @geekyjessica (plus all the other folks who got in on the action) for a lot of fun this weekend ;*

Now, where's my coffee....

Things That Caused Me To Make Noise This Morning (Updated and now NSFW ::grin::)

Neither of things is related, and yet they both caused me to make some really unique noises this morning.

Update: I just saw this. I have no number for it. It's definitely not SFW, hilarious and makes me think the Germans are wayyyyyyyy more laid back than most people may think.

Below is an ad for a new German video game called "Cock Out" in which you battle AIDS by putting on a special "e-condom" and shaking your penis around.

I kinda want to dub this video to "Whoomp! There is is and see if it works....




(via Buzzfeed)

Thing #1 

The new Living Dead Dolls set is called "Things With Wings". I think it needs to be subtitled "OMG NEED". Actually, I think I can safely say "Mine!"



(I know it says coming in May of next year, but given my experience with how these sell, I think it'll pre-sell out way before that. So if you want it, I'd suggest pre-ordering since you don't actually pay till it arrives in May.)

Thing #2

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw at The Escapist. This is definitely not SFW. Not only because of the language, but because of the insane amount of laughter that will ensue, causing your co-workers to wonder what kinds of drugs you're on.



Okay, that done, time for me to try and do some work. I have to try and do as much as I can before next week. Cataclysm is coming and I need time for WoW. ::grin::
