Today is the big day!  In just a couple of hours, the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will excite every Whovian around the planet including the one writing this post!  And of course what better way to celebrate is there than by buying a couple of fantastic Doctor Who t-shirts that just happen to be on sale today only in celebration of the big event?

The incredible Whovians over at TeeFury are selling these two fantastic Doctor Who tees for just $11 today only!  Not only that, when you order one or both of the shirts, you also get a cool 5″x7″ 3D mini-poster and 3D glasses that are also a celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who!

The design on the left is called ‘Time Will Tell’ which was designed by onebluebird and the design on the right is by bamboota and is called ’50 Years of Time Lords’.  While I think I prefer the style of the 50 years of time lords shirt, they are both awesome and I plan on ordering one of each!  Which one do you plan on ordering or will you be buying both?

Of course that leads me to the big question of the day, how will you be celebrating the wonderful world of Doctor Who today?  Let us know in the comments below!  As for me, I will be wearing my David Tennant shirt designed by Megan Lara (did you really think I would not wear one of her Doctor Who shirts today?) and I plan on spending the day watching all of the Doctor Who stuff on BBC America.  Happy 50th everybody!

I am obsessed with wearing slippers around the house.  I find regular shoes to be too heavy and stiff to comfortably wear while lounging around the house but my feet do tend to get cold so I have turned to slippers and they are wonderful!  For the past several years, I have worn some sheep’s wool slippers or something like that but I am on my last pair and don’t expect to be given another pair so I will soon be looking for some new slippers and I think I have found the perfect ones.

If you are a Doctor Who fan like I am, you will love lounging around the house watching Doctor Who in these fantastic TARDIS slippers!  Now that winter is quickly approaching, your feet are going to start getting really cold and you need a nice pair of slippers like these to keep them warm!  And what is better than watching the Doctor Who Christmas Special or even the 50th anniversary special while curled up on the couch in a TARDIS snuggie and wearing some TARDIS slippers?  Well, if you want a TARDIS snuggie, you will have to make your own but you can at least buy the slippers.

The awesome Whovians over at ThinkGeek are selling these really cool Doctor Who TARDIS slippers for just $19.99 (this is an affiliate link so we get credit for telling you about these awesome slippers which goes toward helping us keep the lights on)!  They are available in a range of sizes so assuming you don’t have some clown feet or something, you should be able to wear a pair of these.  However, these might even be bigger on the inside so that wouldn’t be a problem but I wouldn’t count on it.

Whether you want a pair of these for yourself or you are looking for a Christmas gift for that Whovian in your life, you need to order these Doctor Who slippers!

Is it just me or is anybody else excited about the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special that is just a week and a half away?  Stupid question, I know!  I don’t know a single Whovian who isn’t counting down the days until the special.  I can’t wait to see the 10th Doctor and Rose return and from what I have heard, there are even more surprises to come!  Now comes the big question, what Doctor Who shirt do you plan on wearing for the big day?

I haven’t decided which Doctor Who shirt I am going to wear considering I have around two dozen to choose from but I am pretty certain I will wear one of the ones designed by Megan Lara and OmegaMan5000.  Anybody who has been following Global Geek News for pretty much any length of time knows I am obsessed with Megan Lara’s art and always buy shirts featuring her artwork and post about them on here and today is no exception!

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this Doctor Who inspired All of Time and Space t-shirt for just $11! (this is an affiliate link so they know we sent you and we make a little bit of money for referring you which helps support Global Geek News and keeps the lights on)  This is yet another shirt in the series of Doctor Who themed collaborations between Megan and OmegaMan5000 and I think they hit another home run with this one!  However, not only is this shirt for sale today only, they also have a special going on where if you buy the shirt plus one of the “companion shirts” (one of the other collaborative Doctor Who shirts designed by them), you get 4 cool Doctor Who postcards and a temporary tattoo featuring this All of Time and Space design.  The picture below will explain it.

If you are a Doctor Who fan who especially loves the 10th Doctor, you need to get this shirt before it is gone!

Normally, I am usually the first person you will hear complaining about any talk of Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I thought I would make an exception for this awesome ornament set since many people put up their Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving (after they are done shopping of course) and I want to make sure you guys are ready with these ornaments when the time comes to decorate the tree.  If you are a gamer or have one in your family, I am sure you are going to love decorating your tree with some old school video game controller ornaments.

The amazing and festive folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this really cool video game controller ornament set for just $19.99 (disclaimer:  That is an affiliate link so when you buy these, they credit us with the sale so we can have a nice Christmas too).  Whether you have fond memories of the Atari, NES, Sega Genesis, the original PlayStation or all of them, I’m quite positive you will love hanging these ornaments from your trees.  I know these are going to look great on my tree this year!

Remember, Santa gives the best presents to those with the geekiest Christmas trees!

What geeky things do you tend to put on your Christmas tree?  Let us know in the comments below!

First of all, before I get start talking about this incredible NES mod, I want apologize to all of the loyal Global Geek News readers for having been largely MIA for over a month (I’ve still been pretty active over on our Facebook page).  Today is the first day in over a month that my head is finally clear of all the stuff that has been occupying my mind lately and I finally feel like myself again (yay for meditation!).  So hopefully things will be back to normal now so you can expect to see me posting awesome stuff again at least on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays like I had been.  Anyway, lets talk about an awesome console mod shall we?

In the past, I have featured several incredible NES console mods made by Ryan Fitzpatrick aka Platinumfungi including a fantastic Legend of Zelda NES console mod and a Mega Man console mod (which sold for $1,000 on ebay).  Well, he is back to his usual tricks with a new back-lit NES console mod based on Mega Man 2!

If you are a big Mega Man fan and are interested in owning this awesome console, you are in luck because you have that chance!  Like his last Mega Man console mod, this one is also up for sale on Ebay and the auction lasts until tomorrow evening.  Unfortunately, you are going to need deep pockets because this one is already going for $950.  If I had that kind of money to spend on an NES, I definitely would.  I think I am going to need to hit the lottery first and there are no lottery drawings around here until after the auction is over.  Maybe next time!  I will still continue to admire the pictures below of it though!

As cool as ice sculptures can be, I just don’t see the point.  They look neat but I don’t want to deal with a wet mess and it seems kind of silly to pay that kind of money for something that will be a puddle of water in a couple of hours.  Well, its probably a good thing that I’m not the only making the decision to make them because if I was, I wouldn’t have this cool Millennium Falcon ice sculpture to show you!

I stumbled upon this awesome Millennium Falcon ice sculpture over on Reddit a while back.  Apparently Redditor MissKitty_Fantastico had this at their wedding recently (congrats to the happy couple!) and if that wasn’t geeky enough, they entered to the Star Wars Meco disco remix and cut their cake to the Imperial March.  Sounds like a pretty cool Star Wars wedding to me!

If you want to check out more cool Star Wars ice sculptures, I’d suggest checking out the ones I have posted in the past like the R2-D2 and C-3PO ice sculptures, the AT-AT ice sculpture and the Imperial Star Destroyer ice luge.
