Archives For Cool pictures

It never ceases to amaze me the crazy and awesome things that artistic people come up with.  I know I am not the artistic type just because I would never conceive of something as crazy and apparently awesome as Darth Vader combined with a tank in the style of steampunk.  I often wish I had been born as more of an artistic type but as long as I can at least appreciate cool art, that is good enough for me.  Speaking of cool art in the form of a steampunk Darth Vader Tank, the creation below is pretty neat!

Artist Gabriel Dishaw is the creator of this awesome Darth Vader tank and to build it, he used a toy tank (obviously), computer parts, typewriter parts, airplane parts, wire and more.  He was selling this work of art for $1000 but it looks like I was a little slow in posting about this because it is sold already.  I wouldn’t mind being the proud owner of it but I can’t afford to spend that much just to have a cool Darth Vader tank.

It has been a long time since I have posted a geeky musical instrument so when I saw this TARDIS ukulele, I knew I had to post it.  There is nothing better than combining my two greatest loves, science fiction and music!

In the past, I posted a really cool Doctor Who inspired TARDIS guitar better known as the GuiTARDIS but you don’t see ukuleles that often which I think makes this TARDIS ukulele even more special.

Etsy seller (the maker of the Pac-Man ukulele I posted in the past) is selling this fantastic TARDIS ukulele for $700.  I really have no idea if that is a good price as I have never looked into buying a ukulele before but I would guess it is a decent price considering the awesome TARDIS design.  Feel free to correct me in the comments below if I am way off about that.

If you know any ukulele playing Doctor Who fans, make sure to send this link to them, otherwise just share this with any Doctor Who fans you know because they will think it is pretty cool!  Like us on Facebook too!

If you or somebody you know happens to get this, send us a video of you playing it and we will share it on here!

A long time ago, I posted some Star Wars inspired Stormtrooper latte art that looking back in comparison to all of the other latte art I have posted is so ugly I probably should have never posted it.  It was a decent effort but looking back, it just wasn’t up to the quality standards I try to hold this site up to.  However, today I have found some great Stormtrooper latte art that is worthy of being on Global Geek News!

Sadly, I have no idea who the talented barista is that made this awesome work of Star Wars latte art but they did a great job!  If you know who made this awesome Stormtrooper latte art, let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

I’m not a coffee drinker but I could probably use a nice cup of Stormtrooper right about now.  Waking up at 4am with an extremely upset stomach is not fun and now I am so tired I will probably end up falling asleep at work.  At least the weekend is almost here!

If I ever get my basement straightened out, I have long dreamed of doing something cool with it like turning it into a mini arcade or perhaps having a nice home theater setup but I’ve never thought of giving it an NES theme until now.  After seeing the NES themed room below, my thoughts about my basements future have completely changed because I want this for myself!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who owns this amazing Nintendo NES themed living room (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit), but they did an incredible job building it.  I’m not sure what I love most, the NES coffee table, the NES cartridge end tables or all of the cool Super Mario Bros woodwork that decorates the walls.

However, there is one real problem with this picture.  The Xbox 360 controller on the couch ruins the whole NES theme.  It should be a NES controller to properly keep with the theme but maybe I’m just being picky.

Does anybody know how much it would cost to build all of this?  I’m seriously interested in at least having the NES coffee table and cartridge tables.  That would give me the ultimate basement!

Even though I have been a huge Legend of Zelda fan since I was a kid, I have never played Wind Waker.  For many years, I have been put off by the graphical style it has which was such a huge change from Ocarina of Time (perhaps the best game of all time).  However, I have finally changed my thought process and now I am really looking forward to checking out the game when the HD version comes out for the Wii U later this year.  Until then, I can just stare at pictures of this incredible Legend of Zelda Wind Waker cake!

I posted a really cool Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker cake in the past but I don’t think it is even in the same league as the one below!

The incredible cake makers over at Nerdache Cakes (we have featured many of their creations in the past if you want to search for them in the box on the right) made this incredible Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker cake for a birthday party last week.  The amount of time and detail that went into this cake is amazing!

As for the yummy details, the cake was a vanilla/white chocolate chip cake with vanilla and almond buttercream, a layer of crushed sugar cookies and lots of white chocolate ganache. The front of the ship (The King of Red Lions) is carved foam and chocolate. Link and Zelda are 8″ inch fondant figures and all of the waves around the boat are fondant (yuck!) too.  As for the sail, it is papercraft.

Unfortunately, there is one thing that is very wrong with this cake.  It was made for a 1 year old’s birthday.  Why would you have something this amazing made for a kid that will never remember it, most likely has no clue who Link and Zelda are and I doubt has ever played the game?  It just makes no sense to me!  That would be like making the cake for me when I have never even played the game.  However, in my case, I can at least appreciate how amazing the cake is.  Anyway, here are some of the amazing pictures.

Anybody who has been a reader of Global Geek News for any length of time knows I have a slight obsession with artwork by Megan Lara.  I tend to become especially crazed when the design is focused on Doctor Who.  I have t-shirts of all of her Doctor Who designs and a few others ranging from the Legend of Zelda (coincidentally, that is the one I am wearing now) to Battlestar Galactica.  She really is an incredible artist!

Well, speaking of her incredible work, another one of her amazing Doctor Who inspired shirts is on sale for just today!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling this ‘I Am the Bad Wolf’ t-shirt for just $11 today only!  This design is the last in the collaborative series of Doctor Who shirts by Megan Lara and Omega Man 5000 and it might be my favorite!

There is a lot in this shirt that any Whovian is sure to love from Rose Tyler to the Doctor’s 3D glasses, any Doctor Who fan will fall in love with this shirt.  This shirt also makes it appropriate to ask people if they are your mummy and when they respond, yell EXTERMINATE!

I will be buying this shirt as soon as I finish this post since I have to have the last in the series considering I have all of the others.  If you get the shirt too, let us know in the comments below!  Also, using the links here (above or the source link below) supports Global Geek News because they are affiliate links and we get a tiny percentage of the sale.
