Whether you are a fan of Doctor Who or Torchwood, I think it is safe to assume that like the rest of the Whovian universe, you are probably a fan of Captain Jack Harkness.  I know he is probably my favorite Doctor Who character aside from the 10th Doctor of course.

Well, if you love Captain Jack like I do, then I have a feeling you will be just as excited about this awesome Captain Jack of Hearts t-shirt as I am that is on sale today!

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.

It has been a long time since I have posted a geeky musical instrument so when I saw this TARDIS ukulele, I knew I had to post it.  There is nothing better than combining my two greatest loves, science fiction and music!

In the past, I posted a really cool Doctor Who inspired TARDIS guitar better known as the GuiTARDIS but you don’t see ukuleles that often which I think makes this TARDIS ukulele even more special.

Etsy seller (the maker of the Pac-Man ukulele I posted in the past) is selling this fantastic TARDIS ukulele for $700.  I really have no idea if that is a good price as I have never looked into buying a ukulele before but I would guess it is a decent price considering the awesome TARDIS design.  Feel free to correct me in the comments below if I am way off about that.

If you know any ukulele playing Doctor Who fans, make sure to send this link to them, otherwise just share this with any Doctor Who fans you know because they will think it is pretty cool!  Like us on Facebook too!

If you or somebody you know happens to get this, send us a video of you playing it and we will share it on here!

A long time ago, I posted some Star Wars inspired Stormtrooper latte art that looking back in comparison to all of the other latte art I have posted is so ugly I probably should have never posted it.  It was a decent effort but looking back, it just wasn’t up to the quality standards I try to hold this site up to.  However, today I have found some great Stormtrooper latte art that is worthy of being on Global Geek News!

Sadly, I have no idea who the talented barista is that made this awesome work of Star Wars latte art but they did a great job!  If you know who made this awesome Stormtrooper latte art, let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

I’m not a coffee drinker but I could probably use a nice cup of Stormtrooper right about now.  Waking up at 4am with an extremely upset stomach is not fun and now I am so tired I will probably end up falling asleep at work.  At least the weekend is almost here!

If I ever get my basement straightened out, I have long dreamed of doing something cool with it like turning it into a mini arcade or perhaps having a nice home theater setup but I’ve never thought of giving it an NES theme until now.  After seeing the NES themed room below, my thoughts about my basements future have completely changed because I want this for myself!

Unfortunately, I don’t know who owns this amazing Nintendo NES themed living room (if you know, please let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit), but they did an incredible job building it.  I’m not sure what I love most, the NES coffee table, the NES cartridge end tables or all of the cool Super Mario Bros woodwork that decorates the walls.

However, there is one real problem with this picture.  The Xbox 360 controller on the couch ruins the whole NES theme.  It should be a NES controller to properly keep with the theme but maybe I’m just being picky.

Does anybody know how much it would cost to build all of this?  I’m seriously interested in at least having the NES coffee table and cartridge tables.  That would give me the ultimate basement!
