Things We Saw Today: The R2-D2 Birdhouse

Things We Saw Today

This is what happens when R2 is stationed on the roof of things: birds. Over at Etsy store NirdHaus, there are tons more geek-themed birdhouses, because someone had to make geek-themed birdhouses, and we’re glad it’s NirdHaus. (via Neatorama)

Offered without comment: the WWII-era Mickey Mouse gas mask. For children. (via io9)

Sorry about that. Anyway, on to pretty shiny things, like the upcoming nail polish line by OPI inspired by The Amazing Spider-Man! I have no issue with these shades, and OPI is a very decent nail polish brand, but really? No red? Not even one? (via Fashionably Geek)

Wow, that is one devoted fan of the Transformers. (via F*ckyeahgeekgirls)

  • Rooney Mara, nominated for Best Actress for her work as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, was seen talking to Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. And many people are wondering why that’s happening, just as Mara is getting her awesome cred. (It might interest some people that Hardwicke totally had indie cred before directing Twilight. It’s just up to everyone to forgive her for directing Twilight.) (via Bleeding Cool)
  • Vital information for your everyday life: Amazon has the entire Lord of the Rings extended edition trilogy on Blu-ray for just $50, for today only! You should really look into that! Sorry for the late notice! (via Geeks of Doom)

    This is a mashup by Axel Ryan (at Draw 2D2) featuring Nikki and Paulo from Lost and Street Fighter. Because we needed it. (via Popped Culture)
