In case you weren’t already excited enough for the new Star Wars movie, a second teaser trailer has been released!  There isn’t much here on plot details but still enough that you may need a change of pants by the time you are done watching it.

Check out the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!

After wearing the same God of War hat for nearly two years (same design, 3 different hats), I’ve decided that its time to make a change.  However, I still want to stick with the whole warrior idea so when I found this really cool Klingon hat, I knew it had to be my next hat.  I’ve always wanted a Star Trek hat but I’ve never found a design I really like until now.

The amazing folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this sweet Klingon hat for $24.99!  As for the size, it is adjustable with a back hook-and-loop strap.  While I will admit that is more than I typically care to spend for a hat, when combined with a little something else, they have a nice sale going on right now that really helps with the price.  If you use the code ‘BIGRED’ at checkout through Wednesday (4/15/2015), you can save 20% off an order of $50+, 25% off an order of $100+ or 30% off an order of $150+!  If you are looking to pick up some geeky gear at a nice discount, now is the time to do it!

Its been a while since I have posted any daily t-shirt sales since I have tried to cut back on buying them myself but when today’s shirts at TeeFury hit my inbox this morning, I knew that I not only had to buy both of them but I had to post about them too!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling these two amazing Doctor Who shirts for just $11 each today only!  One shirt is called Vincent Van Who (designed by John Sumrow) and it features a Van Gogh style painting with him holding a Sonic Screwdriver and the TARDIS while incorporating some elements of his most famous paintings (as a Van Gogh fan, this pleases me greatly).  The other shirt is called Anywhere (designed by upsidedownowl) and prominently features the TARDIS.  I have a Battlestar Galactica Viper and Star Wars X-Wing shirt just like it so obviously I must have this shirt too.

If you are a Doctor Who fan, these are obviously two must-have shirts!  I know I will be ordering both!

Death Star Latte Art

It has been a while since I have posted some nerdy latte art (search for latte art on the right to see all of the amazing latte art I have posted about in the past), so when I saw this Death Star latte art on the front page of the Star Wars subreddit, I thought I should post it on here.

This awesome Star Wars latte art features a great looking Death Star and Tie Bomber.  Sadly, I’m not sure who the barista is who made this to give them credit (let us know in the comments below if you know who they are), but they did a fantastic job!  The froth is strong with this one!

On a side note, I have always wondered if baristas charge extra to do stuff like this or are you just expected to tip more?  I’m not a coffee person so I’m unfamiliar with the situation.  Feel free to enlighten me in the comments below because I am truly curious!

If you have been reading Global Geek News for a while, you know that one of my favorite things to post is nerdy wedding cakes.  They always look amazing so I just can’t help but fall in love with them.  Well, I have come across yet another incredible gaming wedding cake that I knew I had to share.

This amazing gaming wedding cake features tiers of Super Mario Bros (I’m not sure which one), Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and Pac-Man / Ms. Pac-Man with some Legend of Zelda hearts on top.  The level of detail is quite impressive!

Sadly, I don’t know who made the cake to give them credit or who the happy couple is to congratulate them so if anybody knows, please post in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

One of my favorite arcade games to play in various restaurants around town when I was a kid was Pac-Man.  Sadly, all but one or two restaurants have taken the old Pac-Man games out but at least I can play it on my phone when I get the urge.  However, Pac-Man food isn’t as easy to come by.

Back in January, I posted some really cool Pac-Man cupcakes that I found at my State Fair last year but I have to admit, I would much rather eat these Pac-Man cookies!

I’m not sure who made these delicious looking cookies but they were posted on Reddit by user mcmullet.  Whoever made them (possibly mcmullet), they did an amazing job with a couple of exceptions.  First, Where the heck is Inky?!  And second, why is Pac-Man headed right toward Blinky?  Does he have a death wish?  I want answers!
