Despite the fact that it seems like I have posted tons of Star Wars cakes (just search Star Wars cake on the right to find them all), I can’t recall any of them being an Imperial Star Destroyer cake.  Well, I think it is time for the Star Destroyer to take its spotlight in the cake world and I would say it is off to an amazing start with this Imperial Star Destroyer cake that even lights up!

Star Wars fan Lorenzo Wood made this spectacular Imperial Star Destroyer cake for his son Alexander’s birthday.  I’d say this kid is lucky to have one cool dad!

If the pictures and video below of the cake have you wondering just how this Star Destroyer birthday cake was made, check out the Flickr album where you can see a ton of pictures of the building process of this cake.

Come to the Dark Side!  We have cake!

I have to admit, I am extremely jealous of iPhone owners.  Not because I think iPhones are the best phones on the market (even if I am a big fan of iOS), but because the three year old Motorola i1 Android 1.5 phone I am stuck with sucks more than a $2 hooker.  As soon as I am able to get a new phone (not my choice unfortunately), I have a rather fun end planned for this phone.  Anyway, enough of my ranting.

For those that are lucky enough to have an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 and have a love for Doctor Who, I have found the perfect iPhone case for you!

Etsy seller ABSOLUTPRINTS is selling this fantastic Doctor Who Wibbly Wobbly Time-y Wimey iPhone case for just $15.  If I had an iPhone, this would be exactly the case I would have on it!

We are a couple of months away from prom season but it is never too early to start coming up with ideas for a cool prom dress, especially if you would rather make your own than buy one.  In the past I posted a really cute Pikachu prom dress which is certainly one way to go, however if you really want to turn heads, I’d suggest making a TRON prom dress like the one below.  If girls had worn stuff like this to prom when I was in school, I probably wouldn’t have blown off my prom to go to a sci-fi convention instead.

This amazing TRON dress appears to have been created and worn by Scruffyrebel (it is a little unclear whether she is this girl or not but I think so) and the picture was taken by Flickr user LJinto.  There is a whole album of a bunch more pictures on Flickr if you want to see more.  Even for somebody who hasn’t seen TRON (myself included), this is still an awesome dress!

We haven’t had much of a winter here so I think I have only had to reach for a blanket twice this season, but I have to admit that my blanket isn’t as cool as this TARDIS blanket.  I use a snuggie to stay warm on those cold days and while I can no longer imagine using a blanket without sleeves, if I had to have a blanket without sleeves, it would definitely be this awesome TARDIS blanket.

This crocheted TARDIS blanket was created by Kristi for her friend and it measures 130cm (at the narrowest) by 230cm, not including the light.  From design to finish, it took two months to make which I would say was time very well spent.  However I think my favorite part has to be that the light and windows glow in the dark!

I wish I had the arts and crafts skills to make something like this although I fear if I started to crochet blankets, my man card might be revoked.

Despite the cold environment that I work in during the winter, I have never been one to wear a scarf.  As I get older and the cold bothers me more than it used to, I am starting to think that having a scarf might not be such a bad idea.  However, if there is one thing that would definitely push me over the edge and get me to start wearing one, it would be an optical illusion TARDIS scarf!

This mind blowing Doctor Who optical illusion scarf was created by Brilliant Knit Wit.  If you look at the scarf straight on, it appears to be just a blue and white stripped scarf, but when you look at it from an angle, you can see the TARDIS appear!  I didn’t even know something like this was possible on a scarf or how it is done, but it is amazing!  I want this scarf!

Speaking of Doctor Who scarfs, today (Wednesday, Feb 6, 2013) is the last day to enter to a 4th Doctor scarf so go enter the caption contest before its too late!

Futurama is by far the best cartoon ever made and if you disagree, you can bite my shiny metal ass!  Seriously, having grown up in the 90s, there are a ton of cartoons that I love, but Futurama is by far my favorite.  It may not be as kid oriented as many of the cartoons I grew up on, but even when I go back and watch old cartoons from my childhood, none can compare to Futurama.

Well, apparently I am not the only one with a love for Futurama as some cool guy got these awesome Futurama tattoos on his feet.  One one foot is That Guy, the businessman that froze himself while the other foot has Fry lighting the That Guy’s cigar.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who these feet belong to or who inked these awesome and brilliantly colored Futurama tattoos, so if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give them the credit they deserve!

Speaking of Futurama tattoos, if you love the ones below, I suggest you check out the amazing Zoidberg tattoo I posted in the past as well as the religious Zoidberg tattoo.
