Archives For Cool pictures

I have always been envious of those with artistic skill because when it comes to things like drawing or painting, I suck.  Just how bad do I suck?  I can’t even make a good looking stick figure.  I’m not saying I would like to be the next Bob Ross or anything, but it would be nice if I at least had enough artistic skill or talent to be able to paint my house to look similar to this awesome Mario Bros utility building in the picture below.

Sadly, I have no idea where this awesome Super Mario Bros utility building is, who it belongs to or who painted it but it is still one of the coolest buildings I have ever seen.  I’ve seen some great geeky graffiti painting on buildings before, but I think this is the first time I have ever seen an entire building get painted like this.

Whoever did this has some real talent!  I wonder if they would be available to paint my house because I would love to have a Super Mario Bros house.

One of the bad parts about having a small house is that I don’t have a dining room. I used to have a dining room table set up in a corner of my living room but there just wasn’t enough room for it so now it is sitting in my basement in pieces.  I can’t say I feel like I have been missing out on anything not having one as I usually prefer to eat in my bedroom so I can work on my computer or watch stuff on my nice tv while I eat.  However, after seeing this, now I kind of wish I had the money to add a dining room on to my house.

I’m not sure who this incredible Lord of the Rings inspired One Ring dining room belongs to (I hate when people post things like this on Facebook but don’t bother giving the people credit for it) but they have the coolest dining room ever!  I can’t even imagine how much time it took to make all of this from the incredible chairs to the One Ring light that hangs above the table.

If anybody knows who the owner of this Lord of the Rings dining room set is, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!

Is it just me or does the holiday season also seem like engagement season?  Judging by my Facebook feed, it seems like over the last month or so, many people are taking their relationships to the next level and getting engaged.  Within the last month or so, I would say probably close to 2% of my Facebook friends have got engaged which is crazy!

Well, speaking of getting engaged, it looks like one Legend of Zelda fan went a bit above and beyond with their engagement ring box.

Reddit user Blakplague bought this amazing Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box from Etsy seller Turbo Toaster Studios.  There is no update to say whether the special person they proposed to said yes, but I think it would be rather hard to say no to something that cool!

This Legend of Zelda treasure chest ring box doesn’t play Zelda music like the last Legend of Zelda treasure chest engagement ring box I posted but with the Hylian Crest, Zelda heart and the “It’s dangerous to go alone, Marry me?” message, it has a great charm all its own.

If I ever find that special someone that I want to get married to, I hope they are also big Legend of Zelda fans so I can do something just like this!  I suppose that is putting the cart in front of the horse though as finding that special someone seems pretty much impossible and I feel more like I am destined to be alone with every passing day.

Congrats to this couple though!

As much as I hate to admit it, I never got into the whole Transformers craze.  I suppose it has something to do with the fact that the show was on before I was born (well, I was alive for the last few months of the show according to wikipedia).  However, I know a lot of people that are obsessed with the Transformers whether it was from the cartoon all those years ago or the more recent movies and for those people, I thought I should highlight this amazing gingerbread Optimus Prime.

I’m not sure of the girls name that created this epic Optimus Prime gingerbread sculpture but it is apparently the friend of Reddit user downvotedagain.  This girl spent a week and a half building this gingerbread Optimus Prime out of 700-800 pieces and she won a gingerbread contest with it that got her around $6500 (she is from Sweeden).  I’d say that’s not too bad for a week and a half of work!  Apparently she is going to spend the money on a trip to Bora Bora which sounds rather nice this time of year.  Congrats to her!

I am definitely impressed!

With all of the recent excitement around the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, it is easy to forget about all of the fun that can still be had with Nintendo’s old NES console.  Even to this day I am still buying games for it because even though it is older than I am, there is still a lot of enjoyment to be had.  Just last week I bought Dick Tracy for the NES because I remember it being a great game as a kid and I want to relive those memories.

Well, speaking of great NES memories, I think my all time favorite NES games were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games, so when I saw this incredible TMNT NES console mod, you can imagine just how excited I got!

Ryan Fitzpatrick, aka Platinumfungi is back to his old tricks and is the creator of this incredible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES mod.  If his name sounds familiar, it should because he is the creator of many of the NES mods I have posted in the past such as the back-lit Mega Man 2 NES mod and the back-lit Legend of Zelda NES mod.

Like his previous console mods, this one is also on sale on Ebay until December 29th, 2013.  A word of warning, you are going to need really deep pockets if you plan on bidding on it though because the auction is currently sitting at $1,275 with two days to go.  I would kill to have this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle NES but that is way out of my price range.  Ironically, Ryan says he can’t even afford his own NES mods!

If the pictures below just aren’t enough for you, you can check out the entire gallery over on Facebook.

The big day is finally here!  Today is the big Doctor Who Christmas special where Matt Smith’s Doctor will be regenerating into Peter Capaldi’s Doctor.  I suspect many of you are as excited as I am about seeing just how the special plays out.  I am especially interested to see how they address the regeneration limit since technically, Matt Smith should be the last Doctor.  It is unfortunately I can’t wear this shirt below today to celebrate the big Christmas special but at least you can order it today and wear it when you rewatch it!

The Whovians over at TeeFury are selling this fantastic 11th Hour t-shirt (designed by zerobriant) for just $11 today only!  The t-shirt isn’t just a normal t-shirt, it features photochromatic color ink to emphasize the regeneration when seen in sunlight and give it more of a real regeneration look.

If you are looking for a cool shirt to show the 11th Doctor’s regeneration, this is the one to get as it is also the only one I have seen!  Just think how fellow Whovians will react when they see you in this shirt?  I get a great response from all of my Doctor Who shirts and they don’t even have photochromatic color ink!
