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!

If there is one thing I hate, it is walking around barefoot.  I’ve never cared much for the sensation but it really annoys me when I am walking barefoot and something sticks to my feet or I step on a rock or sticker or something sharp and painful like that (I’ve stepped on a broken beer bottle before and having glass in your foot is not as fun as it might sound).  So, when I am not wearing my steel-toed tennis shoes (I’m rather clumsy and tend to run into a lot of doors, walls, tables, and such so they are necessary), I am at least walking around in my slippers.  And while I do like the slippers that I have, they aren’t half as cool as these amazing Doctor Who K-9 slippers!

The super nerdy folks over at ThinkGeek are selling these awesome Doctor Who K-9 slippers for just $29.99!  These would be perfect for those days when you are laying around the house having a Doctor Who marathon.

However, one thing to note is that these are apparently only for women as they list the S/M size for womens sizes 5-7 and the L/XL for sizes 8-10.  I suppose a guy could wear them but I have no idea how the shoe sizes between men and women compare to know which one to buy.  So, if you are a lady Whovian, you are set but if you are a guy, you will need to do some shoe size conversion to figure out if these are going to be able to fit you.

One of my favorite arcade games to play as a kid was Pac-Man.  I can’t say I was ever that good at it but it was still a lot of fun and I occasionally play it on one of my mobile devices whenever I need a retro gaming fix.  For as ridiculously simple as the game is (especially compared to modern games), I still have a lot of fun playing it.  It makes me long for the days of going to the arcade which closed down where I live several years ago.  Well, judging by this sweet cake, I’m not the only one who has fond memories of the simple times of Pac-man!

This awesome Pac-Man cake was created by Ciccio Cakes.  Not only is it a cool Pac-Man cake, it features the Atari 2600 joystick on top!

Whoever Alex is, I’d say they are pretty lucky to get this cool Pac-Man cake on their 21st birthday!  Happy Birthday Alex!

Speaking of Pac-Man cakes, if you haven’t seen them before, check out the awesome Pac-Man wedding cake I posted a couple of years ago as well as the amazing Pac-Man cupcakes I featured around a year and a half ago.

It doesn’t happen as often as I would like but every once in a while, a Global Geek News reader e-mails me to share their geeky creation, cosplay, tattoo, ect.  Well, recently one of our wonderful readers e-mailed me to show off his awesome and rather scary Haunter Pokemon tattoo.  I know that Haunter is meant to be a scary Pokemon, but I never really found it to be very scary until I saw this tattoo.

Global Geek News reader and apparent Pokemon enthusiast Brandon Stone sent in this picture of his sweet Haunter tattoo.  The tattoo artist that inked this Pokemon is Justin Owens of the South Texas Tattoo Shop.  I’d say Justin did a pretty good job with it!  I like how creepy the eyes and mouth look.

After seeing this, I am in the mood to go finish playing Pokemon X which I took a break from when I started playing Assassin’s Creed Liberation on my Vita.  I guess now I know what I will be playing when I get home from work tonight.

If you have any cool geeky things like tattoos you would like to see us post about, hit is up through the contact page linked above.

It is rare that the content I post comes from e-mails people send me.  Most of the e-mail I get for people pitching me on post ideas are obviously sent out to tons of sites, typically sent by some PR person and rarely match the focus of my various blogs.  So, most of the e-mail I get just goes in the trash, especially if it is anything Kickstarter related which accounts for probably 95% of those e-mails these days.  However, once in a great while, there is a post that makes perfect sense for one of my blogs and I decide to post about it.  This is one of those times.

I received an e-mail yesterday morning from Meilen at NeoMan Studios with a link to a cool infographic about how video games make you a better person and as somebody who has used various studies to show that I am a better person because I am a gamer, it struck a chord with me so I knew I had to post it.

My question to all of the gamers out there, have you noticed any of these benefits thanks to the time you spend gaming?  Let me know in the comments below!
