As much as I like pirates, the skull and bones thing has never had a huge appeal to me like they do a lot of people.  I guess I have always seen then as too creepy to really be something that I would be interested in wearing or tattooing on myself.  Perhaps my distaste for them stems from my rather conservative upbringing but who knows.  However, the one thing I do know is that ever since I was a kid, I have had a huge love for Pokemon, so even though the skull and crossbones have never really been my cup of tea, I still think this shirt which is on sale today only is pretty cool!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling this Pokemon skull and crossbones t-shirt featuring Ash’s hat and the original Pokemon known as Trainer for Life for just $11 today only!  This cool yet creepy Pokemon shirt was designed by the artist known as harebrained.  I’d say they did a pretty good job and I have to commend them for using the original 151 Pokemon to make this design rather than the zillion Pokemon they have now.

Even though I’m not a skull and crossbones kind of guy, I still think I might get this shirt because its cool and I will always be a huge fan of the original Pokemon.  Let me know in the comments below if you ordered one of these shirts!

There is nothing that makes me feel like a waste of oxygen quite like seeing some kid a lot younger than me building something far more amazing than I could ever even dream of building.  The guy below is perhaps the perfect example of this because this kid has accomplished more with cardboard by the time he is 20 than I have with anything at the age of 26.  On the bright side, I’m sure that this guy has probably had a hundred times more papercuts than I ever will so I guess I have that going for me.

Taiwan cardboard artist Kai-Xiang Xhong is the 20 year old genius behind this incredible life size Iron Man armor made out of cardboard.  It took him a year to complete this masterpiece and after a quick paint job, I’d say even Tony Stark would wear it!

Of course his works of art don’t stop there, check out the video below the pictures to see some of the other things he has created ranging from a cardboard dragon to a life size T-Rex skull made of cardboard.  This guy is seriously talented with cardboard!

Even though I can’t play an instrument, being a huge metalhead, I still enjoy seeing really cool custom guitars.  I’ve posted a ton of custom guitars in the past including a Koopa Troopa electric guitar, a stunning Halo guitar and even a Lord of the Rings acoustic guitar and I think the C-3PO guitar below might be among my favorites.  In fact, if you combined this C-3PO guitar with this Millennium Falcon bass, you would have the start of one kickass Star Wars band!  On a slightly related note, I highly recommend checking out this metal version of the Imperial March by Epica (my all time favorite band).  Anyway, back to this C-3PO electric guitar.

Etsy seller RAINY DAY INSTRUMENTS is selling this really cool electric C-3PO Star Wars guitar for $465.  The neck is made of Behringer maple and the C-3PO part of this guitar comes from some collectors case which can still open and even talks!

If you are a musically talented Star Wars fan, I suspect this might just be the electric guitar for you!  If you do buy it, make sure to send us a video of you playing it because I would love to hear how it sounds.

I don’t care what anybody says, there is no such thing as having too many Battlestar Galactica shirts!  I’m not positive how many I have these days (I’d say at least half a dozen but I’m really not sure), but that number is about to grow by one more because this shirt is fraking awesome!  I know my tastes tend to differ from most people, but I’m pretty sure that most every BSG fan will agree with me that this shirt is really cool and a must have.  Heck, I’d still be all over this deal even if it didn’t have flourescent red glow ink!

The awesome geeks over at TeeFury are selling this sweet Battlestar Galactica inspired “We Built Them!” t-shirt featuring flourescent red glow ink for just $11 today only!  This cool shirt was designed by artist Drew Wise who I think did a fantastic job!  I love the clever combination of the Cylon and the Viper with Earth playing the roll of the Cylon’s red eye.

Are you a Battlestar Galactica fan?  Are you getting one of these sweet tees?  Let me know in the comments below!  I love to hear from you guys and I am always interested to know how much you like the stuff I post!

If there is one thing I hate, it is walking around barefoot.  I’ve never cared much for the sensation but it really annoys me when I am walking barefoot and something sticks to my feet or I step on a rock or sticker or something sharp and painful like that (I’ve stepped on a broken beer bottle before and having glass in your foot is not as fun as it might sound).  So, when I am not wearing my steel-toed tennis shoes (I’m rather clumsy and tend to run into a lot of doors, walls, tables, and such so they are necessary), I am at least walking around in my slippers.  And while I do like the slippers that I have, they aren’t half as cool as these amazing Doctor Who K-9 slippers!

The super nerdy folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these awesome Doctor Who K-9 slippers for just $29.99!  These would be perfect for those days when you are laying around the house having a Doctor Who marathon.

However, one thing to note is that these are apparently only for women as they list the S/M size for womens sizes 5-7 and the L/XL for sizes 8-10.  I suppose a guy could wear them but I have no idea how the shoe sizes between men and women compare to know which one to buy.  So, if you are a lady Whovian, you are set but if you are a guy, you will need to do some shoe size conversion to figure out if these are going to be able to fit you.

One of my favorite arcade games to play as a kid was Pac-Man.  I can’t say I was ever that good at it but it was still a lot of fun and I occasionally play it on one of my mobile devices whenever I need a retro gaming fix.  For as ridiculously simple as the game is (especially compared to modern games), I still have a lot of fun playing it.  It makes me long for the days of going to the arcade which closed down where I live several years ago.  Well, judging by this sweet cake, I’m not the only one who has fond memories of the simple times of Pac-man!

This awesome Pac-Man cake was created by Ciccio Cakes.  Not only is it a cool Pac-Man cake, it features the Atari 2600 joystick on top!

Whoever Alex is, I’d say they are pretty lucky to get this cool Pac-Man cake on their 21st birthday!  Happy Birthday Alex!

Speaking of Pac-Man cakes, if you haven’t seen them before, check out the awesome Pac-Man wedding cake I posted a couple of years ago as well as the amazing Pac-Man cupcakes I featured around a year and a half ago.
