The whole marriage thing doesn’t really appeal to me for a variety of reasons but I have to admit, there is part of me that occasionally thinks about what it would be like to have a really geeky wedding.  I have long thought it would be cool to have a Klingon wedding (similar to this one a Sweedish couple had in London) although I have seen some pretty fun looking Star Wars weddings too.  However, the one thing I can never seem to really decide on is what I should have for a cake.  I’ve posted hundreds of geeky wedding cakes on here and I would love to have any of them but I don’t know what I would want for my wedding.  Well, speaking of geeky cakes, one guy got this sweet Batman groom’s cake at his wedding!

Reddit user totallyseparate got married recently and had this awesome Batman cake for his groom’s cake!  The best man, another redditor known as mrtitkins posted this picture of the awesome Batman cake which features the Batmobile and Bat-signal surrounded by the Gotham skyline.  I think it turned out looking really good!

Congrats to totallyseparate and their spouse!  I wish them a marriage as awesome as this cake!

Death Star Cupcakes

Everyday, I struggle with my love for food and my desire not to need to buy a closet worth of bigger clothes.  Sometimes one side wins, sometimes the other side wins.  I’m not quite sure which side is the dark side in this never ending battle, but if they have these Death Star cupcakes, I’d join it!

Its not very often that I eat cupcakes, maybe just a couple times a year, but I really wish that the ones I ate looked like these awesome Death Star cupcakes instead of just having a swirl of frosting on top.  I love it when bakers take the time to do something cool with their tasty creations.

Speaking of bakers to take pride in their work, these delicious looking chocolate Death Star cupcakes were made by Stuffed Cakes.  I’m not sure if these were made for some sort of Star Wars marathon viewing party or what, but I think they would go great for any occasion.  Well, maybe not for Princess Leia’s birthday, but if I was her and these were presented to me on my birthday, I’d be willing to forgive and forget.  Hmm, it seems I value food over a planet and all the life it contains.  Maybe I do have a problem.  Oh well, I can cut back on my food consumption when I’m dead.

As much as I like pirates, the skull and bones thing has never had a huge appeal to me like they do a lot of people.  I guess I have always seen then as too creepy to really be something that I would be interested in wearing or tattooing on myself.  Perhaps my distaste for them stems from my rather conservative upbringing but who knows.  However, the one thing I do know is that ever since I was a kid, I have had a huge love for Pokemon, so even though the skull and crossbones have never really been my cup of tea, I still think this shirt which is on sale today only is pretty cool!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling this Pokemon skull and crossbones t-shirt featuring Ash’s hat and the original Pokemon known as Trainer for Life for just $11 today only!  This cool yet creepy Pokemon shirt was designed by the artist known as harebrained.  I’d say they did a pretty good job and I have to commend them for using the original 151 Pokemon to make this design rather than the zillion Pokemon they have now.

Even though I’m not a skull and crossbones kind of guy, I still think I might get this shirt because its cool and I will always be a huge fan of the original Pokemon.  Let me know in the comments below if you ordered one of these shirts!

There is nothing that makes me feel like a waste of oxygen quite like seeing some kid a lot younger than me building something far more amazing than I could ever even dream of building.  The guy below is perhaps the perfect example of this because this kid has accomplished more with cardboard by the time he is 20 than I have with anything at the age of 26.  On the bright side, I’m sure that this guy has probably had a hundred times more papercuts than I ever will so I guess I have that going for me.

Taiwan cardboard artist Kai-Xiang Xhong is the 20 year old genius behind this incredible life size Iron Man armor made out of cardboard.  It took him a year to complete this masterpiece and after a quick paint job, I’d say even Tony Stark would wear it!

Of course his works of art don’t stop there, check out the video below the pictures to see some of the other things he has created ranging from a cardboard dragon to a life size T-Rex skull made of cardboard.  This guy is seriously talented with cardboard!

Even though I can’t play an instrument, being a huge metalhead, I still enjoy seeing really cool custom guitars.  I’ve posted a ton of custom guitars in the past including a Koopa Troopa electric guitar, a stunning Halo guitar and even a Lord of the Rings acoustic guitar and I think the C-3PO guitar below might be among my favorites.  In fact, if you combined this C-3PO guitar with this Millennium Falcon bass, you would have the start of one kickass Star Wars band!  On a slightly related note, I highly recommend checking out this metal version of the Imperial March by Epica (my all time favorite band).  Anyway, back to this C-3PO electric guitar.

Etsy seller RAINY DAY INSTRUMENTS is selling this really cool electric C-3PO Star Wars guitar for $465.  The neck is made of Behringer maple and the C-3PO part of this guitar comes from some collectors case which can still open and even talks!

If you are a musically talented Star Wars fan, I suspect this might just be the electric guitar for you!  If you do buy it, make sure to send us a video of you playing it because I would love to hear how it sounds.

I don’t care what anybody says, there is no such thing as having too many Battlestar Galactica shirts!  I’m not positive how many I have these days (I’d say at least half a dozen but I’m really not sure), but that number is about to grow by one more because this shirt is fraking awesome!  I know my tastes tend to differ from most people, but I’m pretty sure that most every BSG fan will agree with me that this shirt is really cool and a must have.  Heck, I’d still be all over this deal even if it didn’t have flourescent red glow ink!

The awesome geeks over at TeeFury are selling this sweet Battlestar Galactica inspired “We Built Them!” t-shirt featuring flourescent red glow ink for just $11 today only!  This cool shirt was designed by artist Drew Wise who I think did a fantastic job!  I love the clever combination of the Cylon and the Viper with Earth playing the roll of the Cylon’s red eye.

Are you a Battlestar Galactica fan?  Are you getting one of these sweet tees?  Let me know in the comments below!  I love to hear from you guys and I am always interested to know how much you like the stuff I post!
