There is nothing more romantic in my book than when one geek proposes to another geek in some really geeky way.  I have posted a bunch of geeky proposals and engagement rings and ring boxes in the past but I think this might be one of my all time favorites.  In the past, I posted a TARDIS engagement ring box that lights up and the ring raises through the top of the TARDIS but it didn’t have an appropriate Doctor Who style engagement message like this one does.

This awesome Doctor Who inspired TARDIS engagement ring box not only lights up but lets the girl who waited know that she has waited long enough and now its time to get married.  Unfortunately, I’m not sure who made this clever ring box so if you know, please let us know in the comments so we can give the creator credit.

Congrats to whoever the girl is who has waited and her special someone!

One of the reasons I have been looking for a new desk is because mine really doesn’t give me much room to do anything cool with like have a lamp.  Unfortunately, it seems to be impossible to find a desk that does what I want it to so I am coming to the conclusion that I may have to design and build my own.  If that is the path I take, I definitely want a desk where I can have a Boba Fett lamp like this one sitting on it!

This awesome Boba Fett helmet lamp was created by Instructables user Major League Mods.  For those that want to make your own, you can check out the DIY guide here.  It seems like a pretty easy build since all you need is an old lamp, a Boba Fett Helmet, a LED light bulb (I assume because heat would be a real issue if you tried to use something else although you can probably get away with a CFL) and a drill with a 3/8″ bit to make one for yourself.

If you decide to make one for yourself, let us know in the comments below and make sure to share some pictures with us!

For as long as I can remember, I have always been a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan.  I loved the cartoon as a kid, the video games and especially the live action movies.  Even today, I am still a big TMNT fan and absolutely loving the new cartoon (although I am dreading Michael Bay’s alien ninja turtle movie garbage).  Well, it seems I’m not the only one who is still loving the turtles these days judging by this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake!

This incredibly well done Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake was created by Tea Party Cakes.  I think the detail on the turtles is quite good and I even love the inclusion of the moon in the background.  Whoever Cooper is, they obviously had an awesome birthday!

However, I would think the Turtles would have better taste in pizza than Domino’s.  If you are living in a city like New York, you have a ton of better options than a pizza place whose food tastes like cardboard.  Oh well, to each their own I suppose.

Cowabunga!

Like every other living human, I am a huge fan of sugar cookies.  Thanks to the large amount of them that happened to be around the house this past Christmas, I am still trying to lose all of the holiday weight I gained because of them.  However, it is probably a good thing there weren’t any Star Wars sugar cookies like this around the house because I would have gained a lot more weight than I did.

These fantastic looking Star Wars cookies were created by The Hungry Hippopotamus who gave them a wonderful cartoon look.  I am quite impressed with the level of detail they were able to achieve with the frosting on these cookies.

Even though I think they all look great, I can’t decide if I like Han Solo or Darth Vader the best.  I guess that all depends on if Darth Vader’s lightsaber is made out of glitter or some sort of shiny yet edible frosting.  The thought of eating glitter just doesn’t sound good.

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!
