Although I didn’t get around to watching the classic Ghostbusters movies until a couple of years ago, I have been a huge Ghostbusters fan pretty much my entire life thanks to the old cartoon and the video games.  Well, it seems somebody has combined Ghostbusters with one of my other loves, steampunk, to create a steampunk proton pack!

DeviantART user Grant Wilson created this Ghostubsters inspired steampunk proton pack as part of a “Spectral Eradicators: Circa 1895″ suit which I can only imagine is equally as awesome as this proton pack.  This would be the perfect thing for busting some ghosts this Halloween!

Yesterday, Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor hit the milestone age of 30 and the Doctor Who production crew decided to do something special to celebrate the event.

The Doctor Who crew thought it would be fitting to make this awesome TARDIS cake to celebrate Matt’s 30th birthday.  As if that wasn’t enough, the crew (including his the Doctor’s new companion) put on Matt Smith masks and sang happy birthday as Matt walked into the room (check out the video below to see it).

I guess if you have to work on your birthday, its nice that your co-workers at least do something like make a really cook cake to celebrate it.

Happy Birthday Matt!

In case some of you either missed it or are really forgetful, I posted a video from an awesome Klingon wedding last week (Britain’s first at the Destination Star Trek London convention) and it turns out there was an equally geeky wedding cake to go along with it.  Apparently the happy warrior couple had a 3 tier Borg Cube wedding cake for their happy event.

I probably would have never known about the fantastic Borg Cube wedding cake if it wasn’t for the cake maker, Restoration Cake, contacting me on Twitter to have me check out the geektastic cake featuring 3 Borg Cubes.

As for the delicious details of the cake, it was a red velvet cake with fondant icing.  What surprises me most about this awesome cake is the amount of time it took to make it.  It took 4 days to complete this Borg Cube wedding cake!  It was well worth the time though.  Congrats to the happy couple and the awesome cake makers!

It has long been a dream of mine to have a house that I could have an amazing home theater like the awesome Star Trek home theater I posted a while back, but after seeing this Dark Knight home theater, I think it almost might be cooler to have a Batman inspired home theater instead!

This very well done and insanely awesome Dark Knight home theater was created by Elite Home Theater Seating.  Actually, they just designed this home theater that looks like it was built in the Batcave and aren’t doing the actual construction, merely providing the design and seating.  Still, this has to be the coolest home theater ever!

I wonder how much something like this would cost?  I’d suspect by the time you throw in the Tumblr (who needs Batman’s car in their home theater?!), I would suspect we are looking at this to cost into the millions of dollars.  It would be worth every penny though!

If you are looking to get engaged to a Doctor Who fan, what better way could there be to do it than with a Doctor Who inspired engagement ring box?  In the past, I have posted a really cool TARDIS engagement ring box, but TARDIS engagement ring boxes apparently aren’t for everybody.

I don’t know who made this (if you do, please let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve), but apparently somebody took the TARDIS spoilers book from Doctor Who and turned it into an engagement ring box.  I’d say the idea turned out great!

If you are a Whovian looking to propose to another Whovian but are still looking for the right ring, I’d recommend you go with the fantastic TARDIS engagement ring I posted a while back.

I’ve always wanted to go to one of the official Star Trek conventions in Las Vegas but from everything I have seen this week, it sounds like the convention in London is the one to go to.  Not only were all of the Star Trek captains on hand for the event, apparently they even had Britain’s first Klingon wedding at the convention!

In the video below from the Destination Star Trek London convention, you can see 23-year-old Jossie Sockertopp and 29-year-old Sonnie Gustavsson from Sweeden get married in a Klingon wedding ceremony inspired by the one between Worf and Jadzia Dax on an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.  This is exactly what I have wanted for a wedding ever since I saw the episode so I am very happy for this couple and very jealous.
