Captain Kirk is far from my favorite Star Trek captain (Sisko is), but this Captain Kirk stained glass is pretty cool!

This fantastic work of Star Trek stained glass was created by DeviantART user AidanT.  Apparently AidanT found the pattern for this online so I am guessing if you want to make your own Captain Kirk stained glass a little googling should find you the pattern.  I wish more people would take up the lost art of stained glass making because this stuff is cool!

I haven’t seen the new Avengers movie yet (not sure if I will even have time to go see it), but from what I have heard of the movie, it seems to be really good.

Well, for the female Avengers fans out there (or cross dressing guy Avengers fans I suppose), you can be the proud owner of these amazing custom Avengers high heel shoes.  Etsy seller designed4divas is selling these fantastic looking Avengers high heels for $125 (womens sizes 6-11 excluding 9.5 which is sold out).  To me, this almost sounds like a bargain because that is usually around what I pay for a pair of tennis shoes and they don’t look half that cool!

I thought I would share with you all that Global Geek News is finally getting some mainstream media recognition.  Granted, I am not being featured on Fox News or something but hopefully that will happen one day!

Recently, I was approached via Twitter about having Global Geek News featured in the blogs section of the Pueblo Chieftain’s website (my local newspaper).  While my past relationship with the Pueblo Chieftain has been less than fantastic, I jumped at the opportunity since it is a step in the right direction compared to the past.  If you want to check us or other blogs local to me, hit up the link above!

I am very grateful to the Pueblo Chieftain for featuring Global Geek News and I look forward to working with them more in the future!

 

I’ve seen and posted some pretty great Angry Birds cakes in the past including an awesome and completely playable Angry Birds cake, but I think this might just be the best looking one I have seen.  Apparently somebody by the name of Noah had a really happy birthday with this awesome cake!

This amazing Angry Birds cake that features many of the birds and pigs you have come to love was created by Cakes By Maureen.  If I ever want an Angry Birds cake, this is who I am going to hire after seeing how well they did on this cake!  Sadly, I wouldn’t want to eat it because it looks so good!

I’ve posted more amazing cakes than I can count at this point, but one of the things all of the best looking cakes seem to have in common is their use of fondant.  While I can’t stand fondant from a taste perspective, I have to admit that it is a great ingredient for making a spectacular looking cake.

However, this is probably the first time I have seen a cake made with fondant that looks less like fondant and more like leather which gives the cake an even cooler look!

This fantastic looking Harley Quinn birthday cake was made by Day Dream Cakes for a birthday at the Gainesville’s Hoggetowne Medieval Faire.  I have a feeling some Harley Quinn loving fan had a great birthday!

Yesterday, I posted a really awesome boxed lunch that was made to look like one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Well, from the same Lunchbox Awesome blog comes this fantastic Pac-Man lunch!  This delicious looking Pac-Man lunch represents everything about Pac-Man here from a ghost to the dots and even Pac-Man himself!

I’ve seen some sites refer to these lunchbox creations as a bento box but a traditional bento box consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables so I am hesitant to call this a Pac-Man bento box.  Do you think this awesome Pac-Man lunch qualifies?  Let us know in the comments!
