As usual, True Up pointed me to an awesome new fabric line I can’t live without… this time, it’s the vintage video game prints in the Smirk collection by Kyla May. I love this Pac-Man design the most, but she also has a Space Invaders pattern in three colorways!

“I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar.” Hoban ‘Wash’ Washburn
I’m not joking, my husband and I re-watched serenity a couple of days ago, and I had to look away when Wash said this line… I won’t tell you why… if you know you’ll know, but I wouldn’t want to spoil it for anyone.
PURE GENIUS!! – why did you cancel Firefly Fox?… WHY!!!!!?!??!?!??!??!!
*ahem* For those of you (like me) who have a Firefly shaped hole in your lives, you can plug it with this cute tote, or perhaps a T-shirt or hoodie from geekboypress on Etsy (seriously good value too, the tote and t-shirt are only $10USD each!) oh I really want one…. maybe I can negotiate one for valentines day…
Silkcreen printing is an awesome craft and I really want to get into it myself, but I’ve never been able to find anywhere in the UK that sells the supplies… I guess I’d better use the internet to it’s full potential… any good starter kit suggestions GeekCrafters?
Craftster artist vampyreragdolls is from Portugal and makes these incredible vampyre rag dolls! They come in all shapes and sizes and you can browse through more pictures on their blog. I love the little coffin boxes that they are packed in. Do these classic type Vampires get anyone else in the Valentines Day spirit?
Nothing says a geeky “I love you” like a personal robot. Especially when that robot is a super-kawaii version of your favorite pop culture icon.
Etsy shop Lubu has dozens of adorable polymer clay robots fit for every nerd and movie buff, from Star Wars poster boy Vader to The Hangover’s Alan and baby Carlos. There’s even a team of awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
As if these weren’t cute enough on their own, Jenn and Tony Bot (the team behind Lubu) staged some classic movie scenes with their robots, including Return of the Jedi, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and — my personal favorite — The Exorcist.
As Lubu’s profile promises, your eyes will be bleeding rainbows by the time you’re done taking in all the cuteness!
Craftster user zombiecakeses (awesome name, btw) had just moved and thought her new place needed some “geekery”. So she made these amazing Futurama Coasters! They’re made out of Hama beads. The details are amazing; the shading is fantastic! I can’t decide if my favorite is Bender or the Brainslug. Too cute!
I know we have a lot of Dr. Who fans in these here parts of the internet, so I want to take this opportunity to represent the STL in this Where’s The Tardis? contest.
My BFF from middle school has created this Tardis box kite and has been flying it all over the city. If you like it, vote for it!
