The Geekly, PGM’s Weekly Report of Cool Geek Things (12/14/12)

LinkRings

Welcome to another exciting edition of the Geekly! This week, I’ve got some cool stories, as well as quirky things you can purchase on the Internet (just in time for the holidays), and, as always, some references to Studio Ghibli.

Let’s start with the cool things you can adorn your body with! Local artist Sean Martorana has an amazing store filled with his artwork on t-shirts. Check out his goodies, which are swapped out monthly. Shirt.woot has their top twenty tees of all time up for sale until December 17, including one of my favorite t-shirts ever, Fresh Cake! Top your outfit off with a Stark sibling hoody, and you are ready to go.


Also in the “neat things to buy” category: Thinkgeek is having a massive sale, including a bunch of stuff I want, like Portal 2 Companion Cube Ice Trays and the Portal Weighted Companion Cube Plush. Looking for something a little more personal? Check out StickyGram, which lets you turn your Instagram photos into stickers.

In other news, it’s dangerous to go alone! You best take these cupcakes! Or, better yet, these ludicrously beautiful wedding bands from Zsolt Szekely. Yowza.

If you know me, you know I love Studio Ghibli. So this Ghibli/Where the Wild Things Are mashup had me smitten. And I can’t even begin to tell you how much it would mean to me if my cat would tolerate things like me dressing him up as Catbus. That would really not go over well.

In other news: I like this graphic of Nintendo consoles, this Tetris invader, and the fact that Raphael was spotted in the wild. He was cool, but rude! Give him a break.

In case you wanted more, you might like this lovely map of Middle Earth dress. I hope that young lady will be wearing it tonight at 12:01 when she takes her unexpected journey. And did you hear the awesome story about Lego finding a discontinued set for a boy who saved up for it for two years?

Finally, if you’ve got a spare $25,000 laying around, you could be the new owner of an entire US SNES collection. Check that beauty out. Or, instead, you could watch this awesome film, the first person life of a Goomba, for free.
