I used to enjoy watching that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition show years ago just to see the beautiful homes they would build but the themed kids rooms were always a pet peeve of mine.  Kids are constantly changing their minds about what they like and what they don’t like so it seems like a bad idea to go absolutely crazy with a themed room like they used to do.  Its not that big of a deal when they start to get older like teenagers but for little kids, it just seems like a waste of time because as soon as they like something else, they are going to want to completely redo their room which is no small task, especially when the design always involved more than a fancy paint job.

Anyway, speaking of children and themed rooms, one teenage girl asked her parents for a Super Mario Bros themed room and to say that it turned out quite spectacular looking would be a huge understatement!

Reddit user carpenter75 posted these pictures of this Super Mario Bros themed room they decorated for their daughter at her request.  With the exception of the Mario and Bowser decals, everything else was painted by hand.  Apparently the room took around 60 hours to complete and only cost $700 which included all of the paint supplies, tape, decals, blinds, flag poll, the bedding and everything else.  If they can do something this amazing for that cheap, perhaps I should hire them to decorate my bedroom!

Oh, and did I mention the room has sound effects too?  After you check out the stunning pictures, check out the video below to see just how well the use of sound was done in this room!

Now all this girl needs is a matching Super Mario Bros bathroom like the one I posted a long time ago and she would be set!

Of all of the Angry Birds games (which I play almost all of them daily), I think the Star Wars version is my favorite.  It doesn’t feel quite as difficult as some of the other Angry Birds games can be which is nice from a frustration point of view but I also prefer the birds special abilities compared to the other games.  The only thing that I think would make the game better is if you had the option to play as the Empire too.  I think that would make for some interesting game play.

Well, since what I think would be good for the game will probably never happen, I guess I will just salivate over this awesome Chewbacca bird cake instead.

This awesome Chewbacca bird cake was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes and I think they did a fantastic job with it!  My only complaint is there I have no real grasp of its size because there really isn’t something I can compare it too.  I think it looks big but for all I know it could be just a few inches tall.  I wish there was something to give me a sense of size for this cake.  Big or small, it still looks awesome.

Millennium Falcon Pizza

Anybody that has been following Global Geek News for any decent length of time knows that I am addicted to pizza.  Never does a week go by where I don’t eat at least two pizzas and sometimes three.  My personal record is fifteen days in a row of pizza (one day I will break this but right now my new diet won’t let me) and if it wasn’t for circumstances preventing it, it wouldn’t have stopped there.

Well, speaking of pizza, about a month ago I posted a delicious looking Boba Fett pizza and since it seems people like the combination of Star Wars and pizza, I thought I would share this delicious looking Millennium Falcon pizza!

I am not certain, but I think the creator of this delicious looking Millennium Falcon pizza was the person behind the ‘I Love to Geek’ Facebook page.  I’d say they did a pretty good job putting this together!

It is a good thing that tonight is one of my usual pizza nights because this Millennium Falcon really has me craving some pizza.

I can’t say I have ever been one who has really wanted a chandelier even if I did have a tall enough ceiling for it but after seeing this incredible NES zapper chandelier now I really want one.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that you could make a chandelier out of old Nintendo zappers.  I guess I’m just not creative enough to come up with something that cool.  However, the are some guys clever enough to come up with an idea like this!

The guys at JJGames.com build this awesome zapper chandelier with a dozen NES zapper guns, a dozen candalabra sockets, about 20 feet of wire and a few other odds and ends that ended up costing them just $200 and about 15 hours to build.  That seems like a pretty cheap cost to build something like that considering I’m sure you could sell it to a gamer for several times its cost.

Apparently the owner wanted to hang this in his house above the dining room table but his wife said no so now it hangs in the warehouse office.  He must really love her because that sounds like the perfect reason for a divorce to me.

It never ceases to amaze me the crazy and awesome things that artistic people come up with.  I know I am not the artistic type just because I would never conceive of something as crazy and apparently awesome as Darth Vader combined with a tank in the style of steampunk.  I often wish I had been born as more of an artistic type but as long as I can at least appreciate cool art, that is good enough for me.  Speaking of cool art in the form of a steampunk Darth Vader Tank, the creation below is pretty neat!

Artist Gabriel Dishaw is the creator of this awesome Darth Vader tank and to build it, he used a toy tank (obviously), computer parts, typewriter parts, airplane parts, wire and more.  He was selling this work of art for $1000 but it looks like I was a little slow in posting about this because it is sold already.  I wouldn’t mind being the proud owner of it but I can’t afford to spend that much just to have a cool Darth Vader tank.
