When I cook (which isn’t very often), I can’t say I pay much attention to how the food looks.  While I love watching shows like Iron Chef America and Chopped to see the really fancy plating for their dishes, when it comes to my own cooking, I really don’t care what it looks like.  I am all about taste over making a food look fancy.  However, I do enjoy making food that looks like really geeky things.

In the past, I have posted a couple of really cool Super Mario Bros inspired Bento boxes such as the Super Mario bento box that even has a DIY video to show you how to make your own and the other one that includes strawberries and Cheez-It crackers, two of my favorite snacks.  Well, this one stands apart from those others because where the others only feature Mario’s head, this one features all of Mario!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who created this awesome Super Mario bento box (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit for their creation), but I think they did a great job!  I just finished eating and this has made me hungry all over again.

I have been a video game enthusiast nearly my entire life (I got my first console on my 2nd birthday) and having grown up on older consoles, I love to see people still doing something with them.  Whether it is playing them or modding them, I enjoy seeing that people haven’t forgotten about the great games and systems of past decades.  Speaking of modding older consoles, the king of doing just that is back and this time he has modified an old PlayStation.

In the past, I have featured the awesome console mods from a cool guy named Kevin.  He was the guy that did the Donkey Kong NES console mod I posted about in the past as well as the Super Mario NES console mod and the Legend of Zelda NES console mod (my favorite).  Well, it looks like he has been up to his old tricks again but this time with a newer console.

As you can see in the pictures below, Kevin has created a Final Fantasy VII Playstation console mod.  Although I have only ever played the original Final Fantasy for the NES, I have long been told that Final Fantasy VII is by far the best game in the franchise so it seems fitting that it would get a Playstation console mod.

Great job Kevin!

A little over a month ago, I posted a really amazing snow sculpture of Batman fighting a shark.  When I made that post, I also asked for people to send in their really geeky snow sculptures for me to see and this Batman snow sculpture is one of the pictures I was sent.

Global Geek News reader Alyssa send in this picture of the cool Batman snow sculpture that she made.  This Batman snowman might not be fighting a shark, but it is still pretty cool!  I love how it even includes Batman’s utility belt!

Thanks for sending this in Alyssa!  If you have any geeky snow sculptures you have made thanks to the dumping of snow from recent storms, let us know in the comments below!

It wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I finally got around to watching the Lord of the Rings movies.  While I still haven’t seen the Hobbit, I quickly fell in love with the other movies.  While I do find them to be extremely long (I have the extended edition blu-ray disks), they are still worth the time to watch.  However, I am not yet obsessed with them to the point that I am buying all things Lord of the Rings or dressing up in Lord of the Rings cosplay.  But, if you are one of those people, I have some posters you are going to love!

Etsy seller LynxCollection (the same people that make the great Batman posters I blogged about recently as well as many others) is selling this awesome Lord of the Rings four poster set for $49.95.  However, you can get 20% off when you use the discount code ‘geek’.  The set comes with four 11″x17″ posters, one for each Lord of the Rings movie as well as the Hobbit.  If you have been looking for some cool Lord of the Rings posters to hang in your bedroom or geek cave, these are the ones you have been looking for!

While I have a huge love for art, I don’t have a big enough bank account that would support my desire to have beautiful paintings hanging all over the walls of my house.  One of my dreams is to someday own something painted by Bob Ross but at this rate, I am probably going to need to hit the lottery first before I can afford one of his works.  Anyway, I wish there were more video game inspired paintings like the one below because this is the kind of stuff I would love to hang on my walls!

The mom of Reddit user mymindisntblown painted this spectacular Legend of Zelda oil painting for them as a house warming gift.  This Zelda painting was based on a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time promo poster that looked basically the same but I think this turned out looking a lot cooler.  This guy has the coolest mom ever!

I have to confess, I haven’t seen The Walking Dead.  I should probably also confess that I am not the least bit interested in anything zombie related.  I am sure there is plenty of good zombie stuff out there, I just find it a bit too unrealistic and gory for my taste.  However, I know that there are a ton of Global Geek News readers that like zombies and really like The Walking Dead so I thought I would share this poster set with you!

Etsy seller LynxCollection is selling this awesome three poster set for The Walking Dead for just $39.95.  Also, if you are interested in saving some cash on these, if you use the discount code ‘geek’, you will save 20%!  These 11″x17″ posters feature Daryl on the ‘The’ poster, a zombie on “Walking” and Rick on the ‘Dead’ poster.

LynxCollection is the same person that created the Dark Knight poster set I posted recently as well as many other amazing poster sets.  If you are a geek in search of some cool posters this is the guy to buy them from!
