One of those always interesting life questions is whether a person prefers briefs of boxers?  I’ve always been a briefs guy not because I dislike boxers but just because I have never really given them a chance as I haven’t felt a need to change as I generally like briefs, even if they can be a bit swampy during the summer.  Well, with Doctor Who boxers like these TARDIS and exploding TARDIS boxers, I think I might finally have to give boxers a shot, especially with the sale that allows me pick these up for cheap!

The fantastically geeky folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these Doctor Who TARDIS and exploding TARDIS pair of boxers for $24.99 (17% off of the normal $29.99).  But wait!  There is more!  If you buy these (or ANYTHING on ThinkGeek) between now and 11:59pm ET 5/26/14, you can get 20% off of your order with the coupon code ‘GEEKROAR’!  That is a great deal, especially if there are several things you have been thinking of getting from them but have been waiting for a sale.

So, is that an exploding TARDIS in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

If I had every coffee table I wanted, I would have no room for anything else in my house but coffee tables.  With all of the amazing coffee tables I have posted in the past like the Steampunk NES controller coffee table, the Star Wars X-Wing coffee table, the floppy disk coffee table and about a dozen others (search for coffee tables in the search on the right to see them all), it wouldn’t be hard to fill up my small house with geeky coffee tables if I had the money.  Well, now I can add yet another coffee table to the list of coffee tables I wish I had with this coffee table made to look like a giant PlayStation Dualshock controller.

This awesome PlayStation controller coffee table was created by a guy named Mark M. who made it for a school project.  It took him 20 weeks to make it and it is made out of plywood, MDF (medium-density fiberboard), veneer and obviously glass.  Here are some details from Mark about this amazing PlayStation controller coffee table…

I made the Playstation controller coffee table for my year 12 major work, as an Industrial Technology project. I made the whole controller out of Plywood, MDF and Veneer on Veneer. I used the MDF for the R and L legs and the Veneer on Veneer for the 2 analogue joysticks as the 6mm Bendy Plywood wouldn’t bend around such a small diameter. To bend around the Handles I used 6mm Bendy Plywood. To give the finish of the playstation controller coffee table I used polyurethane full gloss finish. I used White gloss for the whole controller and the Black gloss for the Buttons.

Happy Monday everybody!  I hope the weekend was nice and relaxing for all of you.  I’m sorry for not posting anything last week besides my fights with a content thief (which still continue as GoDaddy hasn’t responded to my last takedown request that I sent on Friday), but I intend to make up for it this week as I look to do at least one post every day this week!  And of course there is no better way than to start off the week with a great sale on an awesome Doctor Who t-shirt!

The fantastic people over at TeeFury are selling this comic book style Doctor Who t-shirt called Doctor Comic for just $11 today only!  This cool tee featuring the 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler was cleverly created by designer Harebrained.

Whether you are a Doctor Who fan and a comic book lover or a Whovian who never acquired a taste for comic books (like myself), if you love the 10th Doctor and Rose, you need this t-shirt!  I plan on ordering one myself after I post this as the 10th Doctor is my favorite and its hard to beat a price like this!  I really don’t need another Doctor Who t-shirt as I already have a ton of them (I’m wearing my Whovian shirt as I type this), but I NEED this shirt!

Unless you have been living under a rock, by now you have heard the news from a couple of weeks ago that one of gaming’s biggest legends has been proven true.  Microsoft and others dug up the landfill in New Mexico where legend had it that Atari dumped a ton of old E.T. cartridges among others to see if there was any truth to the legend and it turns out there was.  Well, now you can commemorate this historic landfill dig and legend confirmation with this really cool 8-Bit Legend t-shirt!

This past weekend, I made my annual trip to the Starfest convention in Denver, CO and like usual, it was a lot of fun.  It took every bit of self control I had not to come home with a couple dozen t-shirts but it was still an enjoyable yet slightly expensive weekend ($20 for parking is insane!).  It was still worth every penny to get to sit and talk to Amanda Tapping for a few minutes and get made fun of by Nichelle Nichols who looks incredible for her age by the way.  Anyway, with the event falling on Star Wars Day, there was a lot of Star Wars stuff going on however I didn’t see a cool Stormtrooper cake like the one below.

This fantastic looking Stormtrooper helmet birthday cake was created by Cake Central Member Itty Bitty Bakery.  I don’t have the delicious details about the cake but I think it turned out looking spectacular!  Whoever James is, I’d say he had one heck of a great 4th birthday!  May the 4th be with him!

Having a slight music addiction, I go to my fair share of concerts (actually, a lot of peoples share of concerts) and one of the things that I always look at first when I get into a venue is to see what the drum setup looks like.  I’m not a drummer or anything (I don’t have the rhythm and coordination for it), I just like seeing what the drums look like.  Some bands have their logo on them, others are plane and some have really cool designs.  Well, the drum kit below falls under the really cool design category.

Frank DeSantis, the drummer of One Fell Swoop, a punk band in New York City, uses these amazing Super Mario Bros themed drums which are sure to delight any Super Mario fans.

These incredible Super Mario Bros drums were created by the Massachusetts-based drum making company, SJC Custom Drums.  For those interested in knowing the sizes, they measure 8″ x 12″, 14″ x 16″, and 20″ x 22″.

If you want to see more custom drums created by SJC Custom Drums, go check out their Facebook gallery which has some cool designs ranging from a Starbucks drum to a Jurassic Park drum!
