One of my favorite hobbies is stargazing and I have to admit that I get rather annoyed with my neighbors and their outdoor lighting that stays on all night long every night of the year (one has a giant security light in their backyard while the other has halloween lights that cover there back patio that they never take down).  Between that and the big trees on my street, there is little I am able to get good views of from my yard many nights.  However, since I have access to an observatory with a 22″ telescope whenever I want it, I can usually get by.  But, if I had a neighbor like this guy, I would be torn between wanting to kill him and worship him.

The video below is of YouTube user Tom BetGeorge’s 2014 Christmas lighting display which is set to Star Wars music and even features a lightsaber battle on the roof!  If you are curious about what went into this Star Wars Christmas light show, the guitar is 17′, the piano is 19′ and there are around 100,000 lights used!  I’d hate to see what this guys electric bill is like at the end of the month!

If you want to see this house in person, you can find it on the corner of Lafayette and Ruschin in Newark, CA and it is usually lit up between 6-10pm.

The Force is strong with this house!

Whenever I am driving around in my car, I always have my phone plugged into my FM transmitter which also gives power to my phone so I can both charge my phone and listen to music off of my phone.  However, if you aren’t as old school as me and have a stereo system new enough that you don’t have to use an FM transmitter to listen to music off of your phone yet still want a geeky way to charge your phone or other USB powered devices, this R2-D2 USB car charger might just be for you!

The cool geeks over at ThinkGeek are selling this sweet R2-D2 USB car charger for just $39.99!  It should fit in your cup holders and has 2 USB ports which both put out 2.1 amps which is enough to charge two tablets at the same time and it plugs into your cigarette lighter.

Even if you aren’t willing to sacrifice one of your own cup holders for this, it would still make a great Christmas gift for that Star Wars fan in your life.

I really hate the idea of having to get rid of my Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess wallet because I really like it, but it is falling apart and the ink for the Twilight Princess logo is almost totally faded away.  So, I am in search of a new wallet and while looking around for a new wallet, I came across this cool Klingon wallet!

The awesome nerds over at are selling this sweet Star Trek Klingon chain wallet for just $19.99!  The wallet is a tri-fold wallet which snaps shut and is made of a combination of polyurethane and polyester.

Whether you are looking for a wallet yourself or know somebody who likes Klingons and could use a wallet for Christmas, you might want to think about picking this one up!

I’m not sure if this is going to be the wallet I get but it is definitely on the short list since I love the Klingons and only have an interest in tri-fold wallets.  I probably won’t be buying a new one until after new years so if you know of a geeky wallet I should check out (I would think you guys know what sort of geeky tastes I have by now), please feel free to let me know in the comments below!

About three years ago, I posted about some really cool TARDIS and Dalek Christmas tree ornaments that the BBC was selling.  However, at the time they were going for the rather insane price of $42.61.  Well, they are a lot more affordable now to the point that I would say they are must have ornaments for any Whovian’s Christmas tree!

The amazing people over at ThinkGeek are selling these Doctor Who Christmas ornaments for just $8.99 each!  You can choose from a TARDIS, a red or yellow Dalek or a Cyberman!  And that’s not all!  If you order before midnight tonight (today is 12/17/14) and use the coupon code ‘SHIPUS’, you get free shipping with no minimum!  I told you they were affordable now!

There is no better way to celebrate the Doctor Who Christmas Special than with these ornaments so order them now if you want to get them in time!

One of my favorite things is to see bloopers from the shows I love.  Speaking of bloopers from one of the shows I love, to hype the release of season 7 of Star Trek: The Next Generation on blu-ray which comes out on December 2nd, this short but hilarious blooper clip has been released and I thought you guys would enjoy it as much as I do.
