Archives For Cool pictures

One of the downsides of the neighborhood where I live is that around here, we don’t have mailboxes that sit along the street like many places do.  Many houses just have a box next to their front door for the mail or others are like me and just have a slot in the front door itself.  It makes me really jealous of people that do really cool things with their mailbox.

In the past, I have featured a really silly Futurama Bender mailbox, a Boba Fett mailbox, a rather clever Darth Vader mailbox and even a solar powered Star Trek mailbox but I think this Tie Bomber mailbox below is my favorite.

Sadly, I don’t know who this awesome Tie Bomber mailbox belongs to so if you know who the owners of this are, please let me know in the comments below so we can give them the credit they deserve!

If I ever move somewhere that I can have a real mailbox, I definitely want one like this.  Or maybe a TARDIS mailbox.  Hmm, that is a tough decision.

One of my favorite things to check out at my local state fair the giant sand sculptures that they often have (I don’t think they have had them the last couple of years for some reason).  Each year there is a different theme and they work on it throughout the fair so you can see them create this amazingly detailed sand sculpture that is easily over ten feet tall.  Unfortunately, while they have done everything from dinosaurs to sports, they have never done a Doctor Who sand sculpture and after seeing the one below, I really hope they do someday.

This fantastic 50th anniversary Doctor Who sand sculpture featuring the 11th Doctor, some Daleks, the TARDIS, a couple of Cybermen and a couple of Weeping Angels can be seen at the Sandworld sand sculpture festival in the UK.  The festival runs until November 3rd so you still have some time to go check this out in person if you happen to be in the UK between now and then.

I wish they would have sand sculpting festivals around here because sand sculptures are cool!

It amazes me that in around 2,800 posts I have written on Global Geek News over the past half dozen years or so, only once have I featured a Stargate cake.  I’ve posted hundreds of other cakes ranging from Star Trek and Star Wars to Super Mario Bros and Legend of Zelda but I’ve only posted one really cool Stargate cake in the past.  Well, it is time that changes and I share another incredible Stargate cake I have stumbled across.

This incredible Stargate birthday cake features a very realistic looking Stargate that even has all of the symbols on it.  It appears to have been created by a Lina DeMorais and I’d say she did one heck of a job!  Something tells me that Samantha’s birthday was quite epic.

I am curious to know how long it took to get that level of detail on the Stargate and most importantly, I wonder if the cake tasted as good as it looks?  I wish somebody would make cakes like these for my friends because I would love to have a piece of Stargate.

I’ve heard of scarecrows before but a scaredalek just seems a bit absurd, especially when it is 35 foot tall and made out of straw!

This monumental 35′ tall straw Dalek was designed by Mike Harper and built with the help of a team of volunteers.  It took them around 700 man hours to build this colossal Doctor Who monument but not only does it look amazing, but the head and weapons move and it even has audio!  Apparently, it required around 6 tons of straw and 5 tons of steel to build.

An ice cream shop called Snugbury’s near Nantwich in Cheshire has apparently been doing giant straw builds like this every year for over a decade and with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who just a couple months away, they decided to do a giant straw Dalek.

Not only did they make this incredible straw sculpture, but they also created a ‘DaLICK’ cone and part of the money it brings in is being donated to Cancer Research UK.  Sadly, there is no mention of what the ingredients to the DaLICK cone are but if you are in the area, I’d still recommend stopping in to get one since the proceeds are going toward a good cause and when else are you going to have the chance to see a talking 35 foot tall Dalek made out of straw?

It seems to be kind of universally agreed that The Godfather is like the ultimate guy movie of all time.  I know a number of guys that love the movie and quote it at every opportunity they get.  However, I am not one of those guys because I have never seen any of the Godfather movies.  I risk my man card just saying that but its true.  Last year at a family get together (Thanksgiving I think), I saw a couple minutes of one of the movies (I don’t know which one) since everybody else was watching it but not enough to really grasp what was even going on.  But, even though I have never even seen the scene, even I know of the classic horse head in bed scene.  Speaking of that scene, now there is a Super Mario Bros twist on it and it has been made into a cool t-shirt!

The incredible folks over at TShirtBordello have just released this awesome Super Mario Godfather shirt that is on sale for the next day or two for just $11 (normally $15)!  Nothing says I am a Mario loving Godfather fan like a t-shirt of Mario waking up with Yoshi’s head in his bed.

Even though I have never even seen the movie, I will probably still get one of these shirts just because I am a huge Mario fan and the art here is very well done.

Thanks to my addiction to bargain t-shirt sites and Doctor Who, I have already outgrown my closet and and I am starting to wonder about the idea of adding another room on to my house just for my clothes.  I’m sure that sounds strange to hear coming from a guy but its true.

Well, I just got word of another cheap and awesome Doctor Who shirt that is going to be a must have for me and I am sure pretty much every Doctor Who fan out there.

The incredible folks over at TShirtBordello are selling this amazing Whovian shirt for just $10 for the next day or two before it goes back up to its normal $14.99.  Whether you love the TARDIS, Dalek, Cyberman, the Ood, Pandorica or even K-9, pretty much every iconic thing from Doctor Who is on this shirt!

Whether you are a fan of the new or classic Doctor Who, you are going to find much to love on this shirt.  You might even say it is fantastic!

If you are a Whovian, get this shirt and wear it proudly!

Boba Fett Pizza

Jeremy Bray —  July 26, 2013 — 1 Comment

Being the huge pizza addict that I am, I love posting about geeky pizzas that people make.  In the past, I have posted about some really cool pizzas like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle logo pizza, a Dalek pizza, a Joker pizza and a ton of other delicious looking geeky pizzas.  To see them all, I’d suggest just searching for pizza in the search box on the right and I am positive you won’t be disappointed although you might end up really hungry for pizza.

Speaking of geeky pizzas, I think this is the first time I have ever featured a Boba Fett pizza.

I stumbled across this delicious looking Star Wars inspired Boba Fett pizza on reddit.  It was posted by reddit user HazardActual although I don’t know if he was the creator or not.  Reddit seems to have a problem with people reposting stuff so it is hard to tell if they are ever the original creator of something or not but I am going to guess this guy made it.

Now I am kind of glad I am going to have pizza for dinner even though I had it for dinner last night because I am hungry for pizza again.  I did say I was a pizza addict right?

In the past, I have posted a number of really cool Batman cakes ranging from a birthday cake inspired by the Batman cartoon to a Tumbler and bipod cake from the Dark Knight movies.  However, as awesome as those cakes are, I think when it comes to Batman cakes, the one below is my new favorite.  The detail on Batman alone is quite spectacular!

This amazing Batman cake was created by Di’s Delights.  Apparently Batman was hand carved while the Gotham part of the cake was created with airbrushed Madeira sponge cake.  Sounds yummy!

The only thing I find a bit odd about this cake is that Batman’s head looks a bit…extra terrestrial.  Something about the shape of his head and eyes just screams space alien to me.  The rest of him seems fine, it is just the head that I find a little creepy.

Human Batman or space alien Batman, I don’t think it matters much because this is still a cool cake and I suspect this Liam had one great birthday!

There are a lot of people that love the Borderlands games, myself included, but I don’t think there are many people who would go this far to show off just how much they love the games.  In the past, I have posted some really cool Borderlands cakes like the Claptrap grooms cake and the Borderlands Psycho cake, but as cool as they are, being the pc gamer that I am, I have to say this is my favorite Borderlands fan creation that I have seen so far.

Hard Forum member CrazyLefty took a CoolerMaster case and turned it into an amazing Borderlands pc that looks like it came right out of the game.  You can check out a bunch of pictures of the building and painting process in the original forum post.

I wish I had the skills to make something like this because I am planning my next gaming pc build and I would love to have something cool like this.

If you don’t know how obsessed I am with the t-shirt designs created by Megan Lara, especially the Doctor Who designs, then you are either new here or you pay no attention to what I say and just look at the cool pictures I post.  There is nothing wrong with either of those of course but by now, I would think pretty much everybody knows about my love for her art.

Speaking of her awesome Doctor Who t-shirt designs, two of them (collaborative works with Omega Man 5000) are on sale for just $11 today only!

The fantastic geeks over at TeeFury are selling the Doctor Who inspired shirts called Forget Me Not featuring Donna Nobel and The Doctor’s Doctor featuring Martha Jones for just $11 today!  The shirts have several color options in case you aren’t a fan of the default colors (purple really isn’t my thing).  They are doing one of their famous two fury sales putting the two shirts against each other to see which one people buy the most of.  As of the time of this writing, the Donna shirt is outselling the Martha shirt by about 2-1.

Whether you love Donna or Martha more, if you are a Doctor Who fan, you need one or both of these shirts!  I am actually wearing the Donna Nobel one as I type this (I mentioned I was obsessed didn’t I?) and I plan on getting the Martha Jones one as soon as I publish this post.

If you get one or both of these shirts, let me know in the comments below!
