Pixelthis makes some amazing clocks from a variety of recycled sources like hard drives, turntables, computer covers, bike gears and chains, and even a bike wheel! They don’t seem to be good for knowing the exact time, but they do look lovely:
The stereotype is that geeks eat unhealthy food, and unfortunately there’s more than a bit of truth to it. So why not celebrate it with the Cheeto Existential Documentary Fine Art Screen Print by SynapseArtworks ($125.00). Every Cheeto in a 13.5 oz. bag was traced and rated according to cheesiness, so you can compare cheesiness levels with the next bag you eat. The Mac and Cheese Unscented Candle by kokocandles ($15.00) looks amazingly delicious and realistic (though I’m not sure it’s a good thing that real mac and cheese is a dead ringer for a wax candle).
El Día de los Muertos has come and gone, but we can still honor the dead with gorgeous calavera finds:
The Yaxche Necklace by persimmonjewelry ($58.00) refers to the Mayan Tree of Heaven, “under which good souls rejoice.”
The Calavera Burn Book by Scott Campbell ($150.00) has been intricately laser cut, turning an old book into a ghostly work of art.
Kotaku has some awesome photographs by Peter Lumby and Rob Dunlop of cosplayers from the book Cosplay Fever.
Geekologie showcases an anatomically-themed set of furniture by Vladi Rapaport, perfect for anyone who always wanted a skull chair or a brain ottoman (raises hand).
The website for Fred & Friends has some hilariously gruesome home and office supplies that are a combination of a horror movie and Adult Swim’s Five Minutes To Kill Yourself game. They’re the perfect inspiration for a lighthearted Halloween, with a voodoo doll toothpick holder and a bloody knife as evidence of a kitchen crime. The neon ghost in the bathroom tries to reach out via the rubber drain stopper, while an innocent paper man is brutally murdered with the blood spattered sticky notepad.
Mario imagery is simple and iconic, and a great source of inspiration for geeks around the globe. The Bricks and Mortar Chair by Richard Woods (£1,725.00) is reminiscent of classic NES Super Mario Bros., while the Mushroom Pouffe by Anne-Claire Petit (€85,00) would look right at home in the Mushroom Kingdom!
A staple of many horror movies is the ominous cabin in the woods, where kids are stalked by demons, zombies, and serial killers. There’s even an upcoming horror movie by Joss Whedon that’s named for the trope. It’s a visually beautiful setting for horror, with trees and woodland creatures you can enjoy while you shake off the feeling that you’re being watched from the underbrush. Combined with the ensuing bloodstains, a horror flick with a cabin in the woods is set to terrify and inspire!
