Judging by the look of my closet, I might have an addiction to daily deal t-shirt sites.  I have a very hard time passing up geeky t-shirts when they are only around ten bucks or so.  It seems like a cheap way to get showered with complements from other geeks and a great conversation starter in many cases.  Well, for those gamers out there interested in a couple of really cool and cheap t-shirts, I have found a couple that are on sale today only that I think you are going to love!

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are doing one of their TwoFury sales pitting two cool t-shirts against each other to see which one people like more.  Well, today they are featuring two really cool designs including a vintage Link design which I think makes Link look a bit like old school Micky Mouse and another shirt that is a mash-up between Super Mario Bros and Mortal Kombat.  You can check out both of the designs below and if you decide to buy one or both of them (like I plan on doing), you can get them over at TeeFury for just $11 (plus shipping).

Which t-shirt design do you like best?  Let us know in the comments below!

While I appreciate art in all of its forms whether it is a painting, sculpture or whatever, I think my favorite medium is beads.  You don’t see very many people making cool stuff out of beads which makes it kind of rare but I think that is also part of the appeal.  In the past, I have only posted two other bead craft creations, a spectacular Sonic the Hedgehog 2 logo and an impressive Captain Picard work of bead art.  Well, now we can add Link to the list!

Sadly, I don’t know who created this amazing piece of Legend of Zelda bead art so if you know who created this bead Link, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit!  Whoever made this did an amazing job!  The attention to detail in terms of colors is very impressive.  I didn’t even know they made that many colors of beads!  I bet this took a lot of time and effort to get this perfect.

Easter is just around the corner and for many people that means one thing.  Peeps!  While I have never actually had a peep myself (feel free to tell me what I am missing in the comments), they seem to be the most popular treat for the holiday.  That and those Cadbury Creme Eggs but since I haven’t seen anybody do anything cool with those, I am not going to talk about them.

Reddit user MrSteveB went to a party at a friends place recently and found this bunch of peeps made to look like Super Mario jumping over a Piranha Plant.  I don’t know who the friends are, but they are definitely awesome people.

This is the way Easter was meant to be celebrated although you can’t forget to have some Nintendo Easter eggs too!

It is rather unfortunate that I live in a place where practically nobody has an ounce of creativity in their body.  It seems that everybody is as lazy and can be and nobody is interested in putting out any extra effort to make something that is just cool.  Well, at least there are people in other places that gladly share the creativity of the people where they live so I can live vicariously though them.  In this particular case, somebody created a spectacular Super Mario display out of canned food!

Sadly, I’m not sure who created this incredible Super Mario Bros canned food display (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit) but I have been informed that you can visit this display at the South Center Mall in Calgary, AB Canada.  If I had the money and hadn’t heard an endless stream of border patrol horror stories, I would love to see this in person myself!

If you ever come across something cool like this where you live, hit is up through the Contact page linked at the top and send us some pictures!

When I cook (which isn’t very often), I can’t say I pay much attention to how the food looks.  While I love watching shows like Iron Chef America and Chopped to see the really fancy plating for their dishes, when it comes to my own cooking, I really don’t care what it looks like.  I am all about taste over making a food look fancy.  However, I do enjoy making food that looks like really geeky things.

In the past, I have posted a couple of really cool Super Mario Bros inspired Bento boxes such as the Super Mario bento box that even has a DIY video to show you how to make your own and the other one that includes strawberries and Cheez-It crackers, two of my favorite snacks.  Well, this one stands apart from those others because where the others only feature Mario’s head, this one features all of Mario!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who created this awesome Super Mario bento box (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit for their creation), but I think they did a great job!  I just finished eating and this has made me hungry all over again.

While I have a huge love for art, I don’t have a big enough bank account that would support my desire to have beautiful paintings hanging all over the walls of my house.  One of my dreams is to someday own something painted by Bob Ross but at this rate, I am probably going to need to hit the lottery first before I can afford one of his works.  Anyway, I wish there were more video game inspired paintings like the one below because this is the kind of stuff I would love to hang on my walls!

The mom of Reddit user mymindisntblown painted this spectacular Legend of Zelda oil painting for them as a house warming gift.  This Zelda painting was based on a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time promo poster that looked basically the same but I think this turned out looking a lot cooler.  This guy has the coolest mom ever!
