While I can’t say I understand what all the fuss is about IKEA having never been to one (I was living in Utah when they got theirs but it was so crazy when it was brand new that I wasn’t going anywhere near that place), I have heard enough about it to know you have to assemble everything yourself which is the idea behind this awesome build your own Borg Collective t-shirt design!  I’ve always thought it would be cool to have my own Collective but my hardware building skills just aren’t good enough, much less trying to fuse the hardware with flesh.  Maybe I will get that good some day!

If you have sense of humor when it comes to Star Trek stuff like I do, than this t-shirt is perfect for you!  The amazing folks over at TShirtbordello are selling this Build A Borg t-shirt for just $14.99!  This shirt is certain to make all of your Borg loving friends laugh, especially if they are also IKEA nuts.

Just remember, while wearing this shirt, your standard greeting must be “We Are the Borg. You Will be Assimilated. Resistance is Futile.”

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?

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!

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!

By this point, I would bet that by now, most of you would have a pretty good understanding of my view of rings.  I like ones with a really cool design but I will never wear one myself.  I find things around my fingers to be annoying as I get this really restricted feeling.  However, my main compliant is that I have this fear of once I get one on, I will never be able to get it off and I will be stuck with it on.  But enough about my ring fears, lets talk about a couple of incredible engagement ring designs!

These amazing Star Wars X-Wing and TIE Fighter engagement ring designs were created by the incredibly talented Paul Michael Bierker of Paul Michael Designs.  You may remember him as he is the creator of the awesome R2-D2 engagement ring I posted about back in 2012.

While the X-Wing design has yet to hit his Etsy store, the TIE Fighter, which features a 1 ct black diamond is available and has a starting price of $755 and goes as high as $2,950 depending on your choice of metal.

If you are looking to propose to that special Star Wars fan in your life, this might just be the ring you have been looking for!  If not, check out the other designs in his Etsy store because he has all kinds of other geeky rings ranging from Han Solo in carbonite to a really cool Assassin’s Creed ring.  And make sure that if you propose with one of these geeky rings to send us some pictures!  We would love to post about them!

Death Star Cupcakes

Everyday, I struggle with my love for food and my desire not to need to buy a closet worth of bigger clothes.  Sometimes one side wins, sometimes the other side wins.  I’m not quite sure which side is the dark side in this never ending battle, but if they have these Death Star cupcakes, I’d join it!

Its not very often that I eat cupcakes, maybe just a couple times a year, but I really wish that the ones I ate looked like these awesome Death Star cupcakes instead of just having a swirl of frosting on top.  I love it when bakers take the time to do something cool with their tasty creations.

Speaking of bakers to take pride in their work, these delicious looking chocolate Death Star cupcakes were made by Stuffed Cakes.  I’m not sure if these were made for some sort of Star Wars marathon viewing party or what, but I think they would go great for any occasion.  Well, maybe not for Princess Leia’s birthday, but if I was her and these were presented to me on my birthday, I’d be willing to forgive and forget.  Hmm, it seems I value food over a planet and all the life it contains.  Maybe I do have a problem.  Oh well, I can cut back on my food consumption when I’m dead.
