While I am not a latte drinker, I am a huge fan of latte art.  It never ceases to amaze me the awesome designs that people will create in these drinks.  For example, in the past I have posted a ton of amazing latte art including some cool Ghostbusters latte art and even some very impressive Sonic the Hedgehog latte art.  Well, now I can finally say I have posted some Atari latte art too!

This amazing Atari latte art that is sure to delight old school gamers was created by DeviantART user Coffee Katie.  I’d say she is quite the skilled latte maker to be able to make something as good looking as this.

Even though I never had an Atari growing up, this still brings a smile to my face as a lover of old school video games.  However, it kind of makes me sad to know that somebody ended up drinking this and that it no longer exists.

Judging by the look of my closet, I might have an addiction to daily deal t-shirt sites.  I have a very hard time passing up geeky t-shirts when they are only around ten bucks or so.  It seems like a cheap way to get showered with complements from other geeks and a great conversation starter in many cases.  Well, for those gamers out there interested in a couple of really cool and cheap t-shirts, I have found a couple that are on sale today only that I think you are going to love!

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are doing one of their TwoFury sales pitting two cool t-shirts against each other to see which one people like more.  Well, today they are featuring two really cool designs including a vintage Link design which I think makes Link look a bit like old school Micky Mouse and another shirt that is a mash-up between Super Mario Bros and Mortal Kombat.  You can check out both of the designs below and if you decide to buy one or both of them (like I plan on doing), you can get them over at TeeFury for just $11 (plus shipping).

Which t-shirt design do you like best?  Let us know in the comments below!

While I appreciate art in all of its forms whether it is a painting, sculpture or whatever, I think my favorite medium is beads.  You don’t see very many people making cool stuff out of beads which makes it kind of rare but I think that is also part of the appeal.  In the past, I have only posted two other bead craft creations, a spectacular Sonic the Hedgehog 2 logo and an impressive Captain Picard work of bead art.  Well, now we can add Link to the list!

Sadly, I don’t know who created this amazing piece of Legend of Zelda bead art so if you know who created this bead Link, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit!  Whoever made this did an amazing job!  The attention to detail in terms of colors is very impressive.  I didn’t even know they made that many colors of beads!  I bet this took a lot of time and effort to get this perfect.

Our state fair has become nothing but a boring shell of what it was when I was growing up but one of the few things I still enjoy going to it for every year is the incredible sand sculpture they usually have.  It usually ends up being a work of art around two stories tall with a different theme every year (sports, dinosaurs, ect).  However, they have never done a Lord of the Rings inspired sand sculpture and after seeing this one, I’m not sure I want anything else next year.

This incredible Lord of the Rings inspired Minas Tirith sand sculpture was created by Joseph Alvernaz.  I don’t know how much time or effort he spent in creating this but it was absolutely worth it as he did an incredible job!

I would definitely rank this up there with the Batman sand sculpture and the 8-bit video game sand sculptures I have posted in the past.  Consider me blown away!

Not being one for MMORPGs, I can’t say I know much about most of them.  In the case of Eve Online, the only two things I really know about the game is its name and that it takes place in space.  Otherwise, I know absolutely nothing about the game.  However, even though I don’t know anything about the game, I can still appreciate this spectacular Gallente Space Station cake inspire by the game!

This amazing Eve Online cake was created by Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes.  If they sound familiar, that is because Charm City Cakes has made a bunch of cakes that I have posted in the past including a really cool World of Warcraft cake, a Skyrim dragon cake and several others.  They are definitely good at what they do!  I know I would hire them to make a cake if they were near me and I had the money.

With as popular as the popular pig killing game, Angry Birds has become, it is no surprise that everybody seems to be asking for an Angry Birds cake for their birthday these days.  In the past, I have posted a ton of Angry Birds cakes (just search for Angry Birds cakes on the right to see them all) such as the this cool Angry Birds cake and even a playable Angry Birds cake.  However, I don’t know that I have posted about one that is quite this cute before.

This adorable Angry Birds birthday cake was made by bake-a-boo cakes & cupcakes for some lucky birthday boy named Calvin.  I think the cake is incredibly well done although I have one problem with it.  If it is going to be an Angry Birds cake, shouldn’t the birds look a little…angrier?  Perhaps pissed off birds might ruin the cuteness of the cake but the game isn’t called Happy Birds is it?!  Heck no!

Happy or angry, this Angry Birds cake is still awesome!
