I really hate the idea of having to get rid of my Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess wallet because I really like it, but it is falling apart and the ink for the Twilight Princess logo is almost totally faded away.  So, I am in search of a new wallet and while looking around for a new wallet, I came across this cool Klingon wallet!

The awesome nerds over at are selling this sweet Star Trek Klingon chain wallet for just $19.99!  The wallet is a tri-fold wallet which snaps shut and is made of a combination of polyurethane and polyester.

Whether you are looking for a wallet yourself or know somebody who likes Klingons and could use a wallet for Christmas, you might want to think about picking this one up!

I’m not sure if this is going to be the wallet I get but it is definitely on the short list since I love the Klingons and only have an interest in tri-fold wallets.  I probably won’t be buying a new one until after new years so if you know of a geeky wallet I should check out (I would think you guys know what sort of geeky tastes I have by now), please feel free to let me know in the comments below!

About three years ago, I posted about some really cool TARDIS and Dalek Christmas tree ornaments that the BBC was selling.  However, at the time they were going for the rather insane price of $42.61.  Well, they are a lot more affordable now to the point that I would say they are must have ornaments for any Whovian’s Christmas tree!

The amazing people over at ThinkGeek are selling these Doctor Who Christmas ornaments for just $8.99 each!  You can choose from a TARDIS, a red or yellow Dalek or a Cyberman!  And that’s not all!  If you order before midnight tonight (today is 12/17/14) and use the coupon code ‘SHIPUS’, you get free shipping with no minimum!  I told you they were affordable now!

There is no better way to celebrate the Doctor Who Christmas Special than with these ornaments so order them now if you want to get them in time!

Ever since I could drive, I have always considered Black Friday my Christmas but this years is even better than normal!  Between my shopping online this morning, I saw the news that the new Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens teaser trailer is out so of course I stopped what I was doing, watched it and now I am posting it here before I go back to my shopping.

Let me know what you think of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser in the comments below and tell me what cool stuff you are picking up as part of the awesome Black Friday sales today!

One of my favorite things is to see bloopers from the shows I love.  Speaking of bloopers from one of the shows I love, to hype the release of season 7 of Star Trek: The Next Generation on blu-ray which comes out on December 2nd, this short but hilarious blooper clip has been released and I thought you guys would enjoy it as much as I do.

Given the corrupt, lying nature of our politicians and political system these days, not to mention how easily hackable the electronic voting machines have been proven to be, I really don’t put much stock in the election process these days.  I still vote but I view it as a largely meaningless exercise.  That said, when I look for somebody to vote for, I look for the candidate that seems to the the logical choice for the job and has the most logical ideas about how to improve things (I’m not one of those mindless drones that just votes for a single party although I generally lean Libertarian).  I suppose you could say that while I think my vote is pointless, I still aspire to Spock the vote!

Speaking of voting logically, the awesome folks over at SuperHeroStuff are have this cool Star Trek Spock the Vote t-shirt on sale for just $9 right now!  I’m not sure how long the sale will last so you might as well jump on this deal now, especially since it is election season anyway!

With winter quickly approaching, its time to start thinking about how you are going to stay warm on those long, cold winter days.  These days, I just use natural gas to heat my home (yay for low income assistance!) but I do have a wood burning stove in my basement just in case the heater stops working.  However, my wood burning stove just seems boring after seeing this amazing DIY R2-D2 wood burning stove.

Instructables user doddieszoomer created this amazing R2-D2 log burning stove out of an old propane tank.  You can see all of the steps and pictures for making your own over on the Instructables guide they created for making your own.  However, if you are DIY challenged or just don’t have the tools to build one for yourself but you still want one, you can bid on this one over on eBay.  As of the time of this writing, there are 5 days to go on the auction with no bids so you have a little bit of time and not much competition if you want to pick this up.  However, make sure you are aware of the shipping charges because shipping something like this isn’t cheap!  Shipping is showing approximately $303.16 for me so keep that in mind if this is the droid stove you are looking for.
