As much as I hate to admit it, I never got into the whole Transformers craze.  I suppose it has something to do with the fact that the show was on before I was born (well, I was alive for the last few months of the show according to wikipedia).  However, I know a lot of people that are obsessed with the Transformers whether it was from the cartoon all those years ago or the more recent movies and for those people, I thought I should highlight this amazing gingerbread Optimus Prime.

I’m not sure of the girls name that created this epic Optimus Prime gingerbread sculpture but it is apparently the friend of Reddit user downvotedagain.  This girl spent a week and a half building this gingerbread Optimus Prime out of 700-800 pieces and she won a gingerbread contest with it that got her around $6500 (she is from Sweeden).  I’d say that’s not too bad for a week and a half of work!  Apparently she is going to spend the money on a trip to Bora Bora which sounds rather nice this time of year.  Congrats to her!

I am definitely impressed!

The big day is finally here!  Today is the big Doctor Who Christmas special where Matt Smith’s Doctor will be regenerating into Peter Capaldi’s Doctor.  I suspect many of you are as excited as I am about seeing just how the special plays out.  I am especially interested to see how they address the regeneration limit since technically, Matt Smith should be the last Doctor.  It is unfortunately I can’t wear this shirt below today to celebrate the big Christmas special but at least you can order it today and wear it when you rewatch it!

The Whovians over at TeeFury are selling this fantastic 11th Hour t-shirt (designed by zerobriant) for just $11 today only!  The t-shirt isn’t just a normal t-shirt, it features photochromatic color ink to emphasize the regeneration when seen in sunlight and give it more of a real regeneration look.

If you are looking for a cool shirt to show the 11th Doctor’s regeneration, this is the one to get as it is also the only one I have seen!  Just think how fellow Whovians will react when they see you in this shirt?  I get a great response from all of my Doctor Who shirts and they don’t even have photochromatic color ink!

As much as I love music, I have to admit that jukeboxes have never really been my thing.  Its not that I don’t enjoy forcing others to listen to the music I like, its just that the jukeboxes I come across never have the music I like.  Around here, the jukeboxes tend to be full of country, some classic rock and some pop.  While I enjoy some of that music, I am mainly a symphonic metal fan and of course they NEVER have any of that kind of music.  However, I still like how cool jukeboxes look and when it comes to cool looking Jukeboxes, this one takes the cake.

Whovian David Prouty created this fantastic TARDIS jukebox when his daughter requested he build something for the big Doctor Who 50th anniversary.  This TARDIS jukebox was made out of recycled UHAUL, FedEx and pizza boxes!  However, I think the most special part of this 1/3 scale TARDIS jukebox is what it can do.  It is filled with a bluetooth speaker, disco lights, sound actived LEDs and even a smoke machine!  It is controlled with a wireless remote and can get its music from an iPod or iPhone.

I wish I had the skills to build stuff like this guy!  Below is a video and a bunch of pictures of the build process.

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on a Thursday (and really too long since I have posted anything period but things should get back to normal soon), but I had to make an exception today when I saw this video of a unicycling Darth Vader Santa Clause playing flaming bagpipes.

The legendary Unipiper is back and this time he is doing his thing with flaming bagpipes!  If the name Unipiper sounds familiar, that is because I have posted several videos of this musical geek in the past including videos of him dressed as Super Mario while riding and playing Mario music, Gandalf playing Lord of the Rings music and Darth Vader playing Star Wars music.  Well, it looks like he decided to mix his Darth Vader costume with Santa Clause and then turn his bagpipes into flame throwers and I have to admit, the result is quite spectacular!

It almost makes me want to learn to ride a unicycle or play the bagpipes.  Almost.

Today is the big day!  In just a couple of hours, the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special will excite every Whovian around the planet including the one writing this post!  And of course what better way to celebrate is there than by buying a couple of fantastic Doctor Who t-shirts that just happen to be on sale today only in celebration of the big event?

The incredible Whovians over at TeeFury are selling these two fantastic Doctor Who tees for just $11 today only!  Not only that, when you order one or both of the shirts, you also get a cool 5″x7″ 3D mini-poster and 3D glasses that are also a celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who!

The design on the left is called ‘Time Will Tell’ which was designed by onebluebird and the design on the right is by bamboota and is called ’50 Years of Time Lords’.  While I think I prefer the style of the 50 years of time lords shirt, they are both awesome and I plan on ordering one of each!  Which one do you plan on ordering or will you be buying both?

Of course that leads me to the big question of the day, how will you be celebrating the wonderful world of Doctor Who today?  Let us know in the comments below!  As for me, I will be wearing my David Tennant shirt designed by Megan Lara (did you really think I would not wear one of her Doctor Who shirts today?) and I plan on spending the day watching all of the Doctor Who stuff on BBC America.  Happy 50th everybody!

I am obsessed with wearing slippers around the house.  I find regular shoes to be too heavy and stiff to comfortably wear while lounging around the house but my feet do tend to get cold so I have turned to slippers and they are wonderful!  For the past several years, I have worn some sheep’s wool slippers or something like that but I am on my last pair and don’t expect to be given another pair so I will soon be looking for some new slippers and I think I have found the perfect ones.

If you are a Doctor Who fan like I am, you will love lounging around the house watching Doctor Who in these fantastic TARDIS slippers!  Now that winter is quickly approaching, your feet are going to start getting really cold and you need a nice pair of slippers like these to keep them warm!  And what is better than watching the Doctor Who Christmas Special or even the 50th anniversary special while curled up on the couch in a TARDIS snuggie and wearing some TARDIS slippers?  Well, if you want a TARDIS snuggie, you will have to make your own but you can at least buy the slippers.

The awesome Whovians over at ThinkGeek are selling these really cool Doctor Who TARDIS slippers for just $19.99 (this is an affiliate link so we get credit for telling you about these awesome slippers which goes toward helping us keep the lights on)!  They are available in a range of sizes so assuming you don’t have some clown feet or something, you should be able to wear a pair of these.  However, these might even be bigger on the inside so that wouldn’t be a problem but I wouldn’t count on it.

Whether you want a pair of these for yourself or you are looking for a Christmas gift for that Whovian in your life, you need to order these Doctor Who slippers!
