For some reason, there doesn’t seem to be too many people that makes stuff with beads anymore.  I remember when I was a kid, it was quite easy to go into pretty much any mom and pop shop and find something made out of beads whether it was a necklace or a holder for your tv remotes.  Well, even though it seems to have largely become a lost art, occasion I still find some cool bead art.  In the past I found some spectacular Sonic the Hedgehog bead art but now I have found some amazing Star Trek bead art!

Reddit user djkimothy made this awesome piece of Star Trek Captain Picard bead art for a friends birthday.

I’m not sure how many beads were used or how long it took to make but judging by the quality and level of detail, I would say a lot of time and effort went into this.  It was definitely worth it too because it turned out looking great!

Not being a coffee drinker, I really don’t have much use for mugs.  I think there are a lot of cool ones out there and I even have a few but drinking water out of a coffee mug just feels awkward.  However, for those Doctor Who fans out there that love a cup of joe, I have a feeling you are going to want to drink all of your future cups of coffee out of a Dalek after you see this mug.

The awesome folks over at Urban Collector are selling this geektastic Dalek mug for just $22.99.  If you are a Whovian who loves the idea of drinking coffee straight from a Dalek, I’m pretty sure this is what you have been dreaming about.  However, you are going to be dreaming a bit longer though as this is currently only available for pre-order and it wont ship until sometime in July.

EXTERMINATE!

One of the reasons I am not a huge fan of coffee and other hot drinks is because I don’t like to risk getting burned while holding the cup.  Of course I know many places offer the little cardboard sleeves to go around the cups so that doesn’t happen but I think those things just make an otherwise decent looking cup rather ugly.  However, that wouldn’t be a problem if you carry a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles coffee cozy with you!

Ravelry user Strawberry Knits is the person behind the creation of this awesome TMNT coffee cozy.  For those with the knitting skills to make your own or perhaps have a grandmother that can make you one, you can find the pattern here.  One thing to note is that this is meant to fit a Starbucks grande size cup so keep that in mind when buying coffee to put this on.

If there is somebody that doesn’t love cupcakes, I have never met them.  In fact, without evidence that such a person exists, I would highly doubt any claims that there are people who don’t like cupcakes.  It is certainly possible that there are people who don’t like cupcakes but I am highly skeptical.  Anyway, speaking of cupcakes, I have come across some fantastic looking Captain America cupcakes I thought I would share!

These spectacular Captain America cupcakes were made by Hundred and Thousands Cupcakes.  I would say they did an amazing job as they look pretty much perfect!  I especially love the helmet ones with the wings, eyes and nose.  I can’t say I am a Captain America fan but I am definitely a fan of these cupcakes!

It is rather unfortunate that I live in a place where practically nobody has an ounce of creativity in their body.  It seems that everybody is as lazy and can be and nobody is interested in putting out any extra effort to make something that is just cool.  Well, at least there are people in other places that gladly share the creativity of the people where they live so I can live vicariously though them.  In this particular case, somebody created a spectacular Super Mario display out of canned food!

Sadly, I’m not sure who created this incredible Super Mario Bros canned food display (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit) but I have been informed that you can visit this display at the South Center Mall in Calgary, AB Canada.  If I had the money and hadn’t heard an endless stream of border patrol horror stories, I would love to see this in person myself!

If you ever come across something cool like this where you live, hit is up through the Contact page linked at the top and send us some pictures!

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.
