While I think pocket watches are cool, classy and old fashioned, I have never had much of a desire to carry one.  I no longer even wear a watch since all of the gadgets I wear can tell me the time and frankly I don’t have the room in my pockets to even think about carrying a pocket watch.  However, if I ever decided to carry a pocket watch, I want it to be this amazing steampunk Iron Man pocket watch.

This awesome Iron Man steampunk pocket watch was created by designer Adi Simon.  You can see the steampunk style gears on the inside and it lights up like Iron Man’s arc reactor.  What can be cooler than that?!

I kind of wish this was available to buy because this would be a pretty cool conversation piece even if I didn’t carry it everywhere I went.

It doesn’t look like we are going to get winter here in Colorado this year, but apparently some places are lucky enough to be experiencing it.  If it wasn’t for the 3 inches of snow we had a week ago, I would almost forget what the white stuff looks like.

Even if we aren’t getting much snow this year, the talented snow sculpture artists will always find some of the white stuff to work their magic.

Speaking of snow sculpture artists, somebody created this awesome snow sculpture of Batman fighting a shark in Chicago.  Sadly, I don’t know who made this cool Batman snow sculpture so if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!

Maybe we will have some snow again someday but with global warming, I’m not really counting on it.

For probably around the past 6 years or so, I have been wearing the same Gears of War dog tag around my neck.  The chain may be a few inches shorter than it used to be (about 3 inches broke off a while back), but I still love wearing it.  However, after all of these years, I think it is time for a change.  It always felt a bit weird to wear anyway it considering I have never spent more than maybe 2 hours with the series.

Well, if you are looking for something cool to hang around your neck like I am and have a love for the Legend of Zelda series, I have found a set of necklaces you will love!

Etsy seller LootStash is selling this set of awesome Legend of Zelda pixelated rupee necklaces for $34.  With these, you get all three rupee pendant colors (red, blue and green).  You also get your choice of the type of chain you get.

As a huge Legend of Zelda fan, I will probably order a set for myself because they will go great with the Legend of Zelda hat I wear.

Although I have had a lot of suckers in my day, I have to admit that I have never had a lollipop.  Its not that I wouldn’t mind trying one (I would love to), its just that nobody has ever offered me one and its not something I ever think about picking up when I am in a candy store.  However, if I ever find a candy store with a Death Star lollipop like the one below, I will definitely get one!

Although its not in a candy, you can get these Death Star lollipops on Etsy!  Star Wars fan and Etsy seller designerlollipop is selling this set of 6 Death Star lollipops for $12.

In case you needed another reason to get these awesome Death Star lollipops, they are marshmallow flavored!  I know I definitely want a marshmallow flavored Death Star!

While I have no plans on ever getting a tattoo myself, I have come to really admire the awesome ones that some people get.  While some people are content with just a butterfly tramp stamp, others go the distance and turn part of their body into a work of art.  Well, I have found one such person today I think you all will love!

The guy in this picture sporting his awesome Super Mario Bros sleeve tattoo is a cool fellow by the name of Aaron Torrence.  Apparently he is a bigger Mario fan than most!

This tattoo was inked by Jake Stockstell at “Apothecary Tattoo” in San Luis Obispo, CA.  Apparently Jake is pretty good with doing tattoos!

As far as Super Mario Bros tattoos go, I would say this one is definitely right up there with the Super Mario Bros half sleeve tattoo I posted a year ago.

To be completely honest, I have never even heard of a proposal cake before seeing this Doctor Who proposal cake.  I have heard of engagement rings and whatnot to celebrate the popping of the question but a proposal cake?!  This idea just seems strange.  I’m not complaining as any excuse for cake is a good excuse for me, I just think it is a little odd… or ood.

Well, if you are going to do something less traditional like a proposal cake, you might as well do it right and have an incredible Doctor Who cake made for the event!

The awesome bakers over at Nerdache Cakes (who I have featured many times in the past which you can find by searching for them on the right) were the creators of this amazing Doctor Who cake that features various iconic bits of Who including the TARDIS and the 4th Doctor’s scarf.  Speaking of the 4th Doctor’s scarf, we are running a caption contest to win your own 4th Doctors scarf.  It ends Wednesday, February 6, 2013 so go enter before its too late!  Anyway…

The TARDIS (the real “cake” part of this cake) is banana cake with dark chocolate crunch bits and ganache layers while the two figures are made of fondant.  I’ve never had a banana cake before but it sure sounds and looks yummy!
