Archives For Cool pictures

Despite what all of the lovely plants in my flower garden might have you believe, I am really not a flower person.  I can do a mediocre job at keeping them alive but that is about it.  I suppose that is probably because I really don’t like spending much time tending the flowers.  However, I suspect that might be because I don’t have an awesome Dalek planter to put in like the one below.

This fantastic Doctor Who inspired Dalek planter was created by Chris Balcombe.  I’d say Chris did a great job with it but while the flowers are pretty, it just feels off not having the Dalek’s ray gun and plunger thing sticking out.  How is it supposed to EX-GETMINATE! without them?

Do you have any geeky decorations in your garden?  I would love to hear about them in comments below and I enjoy seeing pictures too!

If there is one thing I have way to many of, it is blankets.  After going through my closet and some boxes in the basement, it amazed me just how many blankets I seem to have collected over the years and never use.  I guess that is a consequence of using a snuggie these days and I even have two of those!  Well, I may need another blanket like I need another hole in the head, but I really want this incredible Legend of Zelda quilt!

Etsy seller is selling this spectacular Legend of Zelda quilt for $199.  The quilt features the 8-bit Link from the NES classic as well as a ton of Triforces.  I think this might just be the coolest blanket ever!

While I really want this blanket, I just can justify spending that kind of money on another blanket when most of the ones I have never get used as it is.  The fact that I got both of my snuggies each with a reading light for like $15 total probably has my opinion of value a bit off too but I doubt others will have that same problem.

I have a ton of old electronic stuff laying around and stored away in boxes but I have never really considered shaping them all into some sort of work of art.  I suppose the main reason for that is that pretty much all of my parts still work and I prefer to keep them in working condition just in case I ever want to use them again some day but not everybody pack rat like I am.  Well, speaking of taking a ton of old electronics and re-purposing them as art, that is exactly what one person did with this incredible Darth Vader mosaic!

Argentinian artist Elisa Naranja Metálica Insua is the creator of this spectacular Darth Vader mosaic made of miscellaneous electronics.  I would have never imagined you could make Darth Vader out of old cameras, iPods, cell phones, Game Boys, PlayStation controllers, floppy disks, SNES cartridges, keyboard keys and so much more.  This is a work of art is called “Darth Vader Skywalker Hellwalker” and measures 130 x 90 cm.

I would give anything to hang this amazing creation on my wall!  I could spend hours just identifying all of the parts that were used.  How many can you identify?

When I see a woman with an excessive amount of eye makeup, I can’t help but think of Mimi from the Drew Carey Show.  However, I don’t think she can hold a candle to the amazing eye makeup I have posted here on Global Geek News.  In the past, I posted some amazing R2-D2 eye makeup as well as some stunning Nightmare Before Christmas eye makeup, but I think this Star Trek eye makeup blows them away.

Sahily, a beauty and fashion blogger from Florida found herself inspired by the Star Trek Into Darkness movie poster despite not liking the series or the movie and decided to make some eye makeup that looked just like the poster.  I think it turned out looking quite amazing!

I have to admit that while I am a huge Star Trek fan, I haven’t seen Into Darkness as I hated the first Star Trek movie so bad I nearly threw my TV out the window.  Maybe I will see it someday but not at the crazy prices the movie theaters want.  In fact, I may have to be paid to see it.  If anybody wants to pay for my movie ticket, I will grit my teeth and go see it.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were always one of my favorite cartoons as a kid, not to mention the video games, movies and toys.  I’m not sure why I identified so much with them as a kid but I would guess it has something to do with my addiction to pizza.  I might not as adventurous when it comes to cooky pizza combinations (I do like pepperoni and strawberries though) but I would at least be willing to give some of the combinations from the cartoon a shot like the guys did in the video I posted a long time ago.

Speaking of the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, if you enjoyed it growing up like I did, I think I have found the perfect shirt for you!

The awesome folks over at 80sTees are selling this TMNT Turtle Power shirt for just $20!

I can honestly say I would have never come up with the idea of associating the turtle power slogan with a hamster wheel hooked up to a generator.  It is a very clever concept!

I miss those old cartoons!

In the past, I have posted a ton of Super Mario Bros themed wedding cakes and they are all amazing.  However, I think this incredible Super Mario Bros wedding cake is officially my favorite and should the day come that I get married, I want one just like it!  I am blown away by the level of detail on this cake.

While I am not positive who made this incredible cake, I would guess it was created by Cakecrumbs judging by the watermark on the photo.  If not and you know who created this great cake, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they absolutely deserve!  I can’t even imagine the time involved in getting a cake to look this detailed and good but I would say it was well worth it!

Normally, this would be where I go into my anti-fondant rant because no matter how good it makes cakes look, I think it tastes like crap and is just evil, but I’m not going to rant about that today.  Instead, I am just going to appreciate this cake for its beauty and point out that I can’t remember the vines in the Mario Bros classics ending in a little loop like that which I think hurts the authentic feel of this cake.  Also, where are the Mario and Peach cake toppers?!  You can’t have a Mario wedding cake without those!
