Archives For Cool pictures

It has been a while since I have posted a cool cake so when I saw this one, I knew I had to post it.  I have posted some pretty amazing Lord of the Rings cakes in the past including a cute Gandalf on a hobbit hole birthday cake and an amazing Dark Tower cake but I think this Gollum cake might just be my favorite.

The creator of this incredible Gollum cake is taartvanbianca.  They are obviously an extremely skilled cake decorator because the detail and coloring on Gollum as well as the rest of the cake is absolutely stunning.  The small things make this cake even more special like the Elvish writing around the edge and the dead fish that Gollum has been eating.

The Gollum in this cake looks just as creepy as the character in the movie and I don’t think that was easy to accomplish so hats off to taartvanbianca.

There are two reasons I really hate flying, the TSA and having to deal with luggage.  I don’t think there is much I can do about the security theater goons but I have found you can at least make the identification of your luggage at the carousel much easier if you do something unique to it that nobody else is going to have.  I’ve seen a lot of people to different and unique things to make their bag stand out but this is the first time I have ever seen somebody give their luggage a complete Star Wars makeover!

Thanks to a couple of retweets, I spotted a tweet by @AMANDAJEANNN showing off the really cool Star Wars designs she covered her luggage in.  I’m not sure if these were done with some giant decals or what but they turned out awesome!

This makes me wish I had one of those old hard suitcases so I could do something similar but I’m not even sure they make those anymore.  I remember seeing family members use them when I was a kid but I think this is the first time I have seen that design in years.  Does anybody know if they still make them?

While the majority of people I know start their mornings off with a bowl of cereal, I have never been a cereal eating kind of guy, even as a kid.  My problem isn’t so much with cereal as I’m just not a milk fan.  I know I am missing out on some of my nutritional needs because of my distaste for milk assuming the commercials are to be believed, but I just can’t stand the stuff.  However, if there was ever a hope of getting me to eat cereal, it would have to be with a bowl of Whovi-Os!

The awesome geeks over at TeeFury are selling this incredible Doctor Who inspired Whovi-Os cereal t-shirt for just $11 today only!  Whether you like cereal or not, as long as you like Doctor Who, you are going to love this fantastic Doctor Who themed cereal box style t-shirt created by Bamboota and WinterArtwork Illustrations.

Even though I don’t like cereal and would really be hesitant to try one that tasted like fish fingers and custard, I am still ordering one of these shirts just because I am a huge Doctor Who fan and I recommend all of my fellow Whovians do the same!  How can you beat $11 for such a cool t-shirt?!  Speaking of 11, did I mention it features the 11th Doctor too?

I’ve seen people make Daleks out of all kinds of crazy stuff like the post from last week where somebody decided to make a cool Dalek planter for their flowers but I would have never imagined that somebody would make a Dalek out of bacteria in a petri dish.  To be honest, I never even knew you could do that!  I know you can teach dogs all kinds of tricks but E Coli?  Impressive!

A Whovian going by the name of Who-lligan apparently works in some sort of lab and decided to make a Dalek out of E. Coli bacteria.  I think this person should win some kind of award for this like most clever idea for building a Dalek or perhaps the deadliest.

CONTAMINATE!

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.
