Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.

I always feel a little odd throwing aprons and kitchen supplies up here, but it’s probably just the part of me that really wants to make an anti “woman in the kitchen” joke but hasn’t yet figured out a way to do it that isn’t eye-rollingly bad. Would Huckleberry Baby‘s nerdy furnishings get me to wash dishes more often? Maybe. Okay probably not, I really hate washing dishes. But that doesn’t make these pot holders (and aprons) any less awesome.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab have created body and household scents inspired by Hellboy, Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth and more. Their latest pulls from Neil Gaiman’s delightful Coraline. “The Coraline Collection” is based on locations and characters from the book like Miss Spink and Miss Forcible, The Cat, and the Mouse Circus. BPAL writes, “This is a charitable, not-for-profit venture: proceeds from every single bottle go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which works to preserve and protect the First Amendment rights of the comics community.” And you might have noticed, the artwork for the collection was done by Eisner Award and Harvey Award winning cartoonist Vera Brosgol (creator of Anya’s Ghost).

Even in the worst movies, Gary Oldman is a shining beacon of heavenly light. And it may be he’s at his best when he’s completely freaking out. Decide for yourself after watching this fabulous supercut which includes lots of shouting and cursing.

Etsy shop Rockets and Rainbows has a selection of tiny Star Wars and My Little Pony toys that naturally… had to be converted to jewelry. Sadly, this snowspeeder is the only ring available (because who doesn’t want little starships on your fingers) but the rest of the earrings, necklaces, and even a Boushh locket with a tiny Princess Leia and frozen Han Solo inside it are not to be missed.READ MORE

I’m a big fan of automata. Whether it’s a player piano or a Victorian woman fanning herself and drinking lemonade on a hot day, they’re impressive. But I’ll admit, I’m only used to seeing ones over 100 years old. This My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic version is currently up for sale on Ebay around $300. Take a look at ” Applejack’s Apple Harvest” in action.

Alright I admit it, I was reaching with that title. There’s not crocheting involved in this post, just knitting. And there’s no tiger, just a scarf that Brilliant Knitwit crafted for their dad. Due to some creative stitching, the TARDIS is only visible when you view the scarf from the right angle.
I’m not ashamed to say that if I had this I’d do nothing all day but make TARDIS noises with my mouth while making my scarf-TARDIS appear and disappear.

It is the mark of the true nerd that I looked at this and thought first, not of the craftsmanship or love that went into the decoration of these eight beautifully painted dolls, but “WHERE’S BOROMIR?” Let us all strive to live in the moment, appreciate what we’ve got, and not be annoying pedantic fans.
We can start by looking at these wares from A Flash of Inspiration, and Etsy shop dedicated to fandom themed Russian nesting dolls.READ MORE

Cell phone cases have become quite the personal statement, haven’t they? Whether you’re looking for form, fashion, or function, there’s something out there for everyone. Just the other day we showed you some DC and Marvel character cases but today we bring you something very…different. Designer Elliot Gorham of Noddy Boffin has created the perfect iPhone case for people who are really, really into lobster. Practical? Not in the least. You can barely use any of the functions of the phone while the case is on so this is purely a fashion statement, or maybe a culinary one. Let’s not stop here, let’s push the boundaries further. I’ll take a life-size kangaroo case, please.
