I'm a bit wiped after yesterday's IKEA trip- 4.5 hours of driving one way, lots time in the store, and I think than 80% of Ohio decided to shop there on the same day, to boot! We still managed to get everything we were after, but today Mom and I are just a bit tired. :)
The geek goes on, though, as always, and, in addition to today's roundup, you'll find a 49 page preview of the upcoming Han Solo standalone novel, Honor Among Thieves, over at Random House (click on the "Look Inside" button below the image of the book cover). It's been quite a while since I had a new Star Wars book to read, so I'm looking forward to this novel's March 4 release.
From the top left:
- This Winnie The Pooh winter wonderland cake is probably more adorable than geeky, but I have Disney on the brain right now and just had to include it!
- Split a TARDIS with your bestie with this Doctor Who themed friendship bracelet set.
- Yes, that is Patrick Stewart, doing a one-armed push-up in celebration of the Seahawks' Super Bowl victory. Perhaps even more epic is the Twitter exchange between he and Will Wheaton that followed!
- I don't normally fall in love with much of anything that comes out of New York Fashion Week, but these Star Wars dresses by Rodarte? I'm going to need them all! Unfortuately they'll only be available for photo shoots and promos in the fall, so the most I can hope for are knockoffs at H&M...
- This cute + chunky R2-D2 ring is just one of many Star Wars inspired pieces by JAP.
- Typography meets the GFFA in these awesome t-shirts by Steve Thomas.
- This 1/3 scale TARDIS jukebox was made out of upcycled cardboard boxes and comes complete with a spinning disco ball and club lighting on the interior. Click through the link for a video!
- Shanghai now boasts a Sherlock themed cafe, appropriately named 221B.
- Since Valentine's Day has officially passed, I think I'm safe to start posting the Easter geekiness now, including projects like these Super Mario themed eggs.
Tonight's video is a long-ish one, but absolutely amazing to watch as Adam Savage (of Mythbusters fame) builds a replica of Han Solo's blaster.
