Luckily the whole Rick Roll meme has largely died out but it never bothered me too much because I’m pretty good about smelling those things from a mile away so I only ever got Rick Rolled less than a handful of times but it was annoying having to keep my guard up constantly around people who I knew would try anything to get me.  However, I probably would have been happy to get Rick Rolled if there had been this awesome Klingon version back then!

The people behind the YouTube channel Commedia Beauregard are the creators of this awesome Klingon parody of Rick Astley’s “Never gonna give you up” song.  For those of you who don’t speak Klingon (I know a little bit of Klingon, curse words mostly but I am not fluent in it like I would like to be), there are both Klingon and English subtitles so you can follow along and see just how well it translates into Klingon.  While the video feels like it cost six cents to make, the Klingon makeup is actually better than a lot I have seen so that is nice.

Now, go out there and try to Rick Roll all of your friends in Klingon!

First of all, before I get start talking about this incredible NES mod, I want apologize to all of the loyal Global Geek News readers for having been largely MIA for over a month (I’ve still been pretty active over on our Facebook page).  Today is the first day in over a month that my head is finally clear of all the stuff that has been occupying my mind lately and I finally feel like myself again (yay for meditation!).  So hopefully things will be back to normal now so you can expect to see me posting awesome stuff again at least on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays like I had been.  Anyway, lets talk about an awesome console mod shall we?

In the past, I have featured several incredible NES console mods made by Ryan Fitzpatrick aka Platinumfungi including a fantastic Legend of Zelda NES console mod and a Mega Man console mod (which sold for $1,000 on ebay).  Well, he is back to his usual tricks with a new back-lit NES console mod based on Mega Man 2!

If you are a big Mega Man fan and are interested in owning this awesome console, you are in luck because you have that chance!  Like his last Mega Man console mod, this one is also up for sale on Ebay and the auction lasts until tomorrow evening.  Unfortunately, you are going to need deep pockets because this one is already going for $950.  If I had that kind of money to spend on an NES, I definitely would.  I think I am going to need to hit the lottery first and there are no lottery drawings around here until after the auction is over.  Maybe next time!  I will still continue to admire the pictures below of it though!

As cool as ice sculptures can be, I just don’t see the point.  They look neat but I don’t want to deal with a wet mess and it seems kind of silly to pay that kind of money for something that will be a puddle of water in a couple of hours.  Well, its probably a good thing that I’m not the only making the decision to make them because if I was, I wouldn’t have this cool Millennium Falcon ice sculpture to show you!

I stumbled upon this awesome Millennium Falcon ice sculpture over on Reddit a while back.  Apparently Redditor MissKitty_Fantastico had this at their wedding recently (congrats to the happy couple!) and if that wasn’t geeky enough, they entered to the Star Wars Meco disco remix and cut their cake to the Imperial March.  Sounds like a pretty cool Star Wars wedding to me!

If you want to check out more cool Star Wars ice sculptures, I’d suggest checking out the ones I have posted in the past like the R2-D2 and C-3PO ice sculptures, the AT-AT ice sculpture and the Imperial Star Destroyer ice luge.

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

Jeremy Bray —  September 13, 2013 — Leave a comment

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.
