geek girl | june 16, 2013

Hola and happy Sunday, everyone! Today I have an eclectic mix of geeky picks to share this week, with everything from the usual Star Wars and Doctor Who to some Back to the Future, a tech pick, and even a rare-these-days Firefly sighting!

Enjoy, and I hope you're all having great weekends!

From the top left:
  • Harrison Ford stars as Han Solo starring as Bob Ross painting the Millennium Falcon in this hilarious photo found at Nerd Approved.
  • Fast Company featured a story about the remnants of the Star Wars: A New Hope set in Tunisia.
  • Learn to make your own TARDIS pull-string pinata at Instructables.
  • Oh, Sugar! Events is the genius behind these awesome Back to the Future cookies.
  • There's been precious little Firefly geekery to post lately, so of course I had to feature this shiny Serenity cake when it popped up over at Between the Pages.
  • Star Wars and video games collide in this brilliant wedding posted at Rock 'n Roll Bride.
  • Now you can wear tiny video game cartridges on your fingers with these rings from OhMyGeekness.
  • These adorable miniature book cases found at Gizmodiva are unfortunately only available for the iPhone 4/4S. Here's hoping that an iPhone 5 version comes out soon!
  • This tutorial at io9 will have you writing in Gallifreyan in 9 easy (or not so easy!) steps.
And, before I dash off for the day, here's a short little video clip of a very convincing Matt Smith lookalike cooking up a storm, Doctor Who style. Seriously, every kitchen needs a sonic screwdriver!
