Geek Tees

Geek Tees

In case you missed the announcement last month, not only is Global Geek News a cool blog, but we also have our own geeky clothing store called Geek Tees!  Speaking of Geek Tees, everything from now through Friday (2/20/15) is on sale!

All of our nerdy t-shirts are $14 (normally $20) for the next couple of days.  Not only that, tank tops, crewnecks and hoodies are also on sale for $18, 30, and $35 respectively.  If you are looking to pick up some geeky clothing items, now would be the perfect time!

There are a ton of absolutely amazing designs for everything from The Legend of Zelda to Futurama and Doctor Who so there is something for you no matter what your geeky tastes are!  Don’t forget, these also make great gifts so if you have any birthdays or special occasions coming up, you should definitely browse the store!

I am constantly adding new designs too and plan on adding more during the sale so make sure to check back often for new designs you are sure to fall in love with!

Head to Geek Tees now!

With Valentine’s Day this last weekend, I had a feeling that I might see some really geeky and awesome engagement ring boxes and it looks like I was right!  In the past, I have featured a couple of really cool Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring boxes like this one that plays music and another one that has some great art work on it.  However, as cool as those are, I think this one with a floating rupee is my favorite!

This handmade Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box with a floating rupee was created by Etsy seller IndyFurniture.  They are selling this Zelda engagement ring box for $60.  Not only does it have the cool floating rupee effect, but it has some lights on the bottom to make sure you have the perfect lighting for that special moment when you ask that special someone to marry you.  However, if you want the full effect, you will have to sing the treasure chest opening sound when you go to open it.

With all of the facts about myself that I have shared over the years on here, I think at least the long time readers among you have a pretty good idea of who I am and the things I enjoy.  However, there is one love that I don’t think I have ever mentioned on here and that is my love of the symphony!  I suppose I can blame that on having a great Fine Arts teacher in middle school but for the past couple of years, I have had a subscription to a nearby orchestra where I usually spend at least one Saturday night a month during their season.  I am especially excited for this month because I actually have two shows to go to!

After the symphony I go to announced their new season a couple of weeks ago, I plan on changing my subscription next year to a different series because next season one of their other series will have a Star Wars symphony and a Bugs Bunny symphony!  How could I pass that up?!

Anyway, speaking of the symphony, I just came across this amazing video of an orchestra in Prague performing the theme music from Ghostbusters and it is amazing!  I love how into it the director is and how he gets the crowd involved.  I wish he was the conductor at the symphony I attend!

Knowing how to weld is a good skill to have although I am the only man in my family who doesn’t know how to do it.  So, when I need something welded I have to turn to one of my family members although that is quite rare.  However, I have been known to borrow a pair of welding goggles on occasion to do some viewing of the sun for things like eclipses and transits (I have the dark enough glass for safe viewing which I am the only one that uses it).  Unfortunately, those goggles just aren’t as geeky as this Boba Fett welding mask!

Reddit user radroman posted pictures of their friend’s welding mask that has been modified to look like Boba Fett’s helmet.  This is cool enough to make just about any geek want to take up welding!

May the Force be with whoever wears this Boba Fett welding mask!

Sweet Pac-Man Cupcakes

This morning I was going through and cleaning out old pictures on my phone to free up some space (16GB is just not enough internal storage Samsung!) when I came across the picture of these neat Pac-Man cupcakes I took last fall at the Colorado State Fair that I forgot to post.  In case the Pac-Man cupcakes below aren’t enough to satisfy your appetite, I’d also suggest checking out the other Pac-Man cupcakes I posted a couple of years ago as well as the fantastic Pac-Man birthday cake I posted last year.

These adorable Pac-Man cupcakes were made by Hallee Conde from Yuma, Colorado for the 4-H cake decorating competition at the 2014 Colorado State Fair.  They took 5th place!  Good job Hallee!
