Gamer sand castles!

Friday, October 24th, 2014


I’ve always been kind of freaked out by the amazing things that people can do with sand. Everything I’ve ever tried to make completely fell apart. Behold the above sand sculpture (since it’s not really a castle.) I stumbled upon this amazing thing online. global geek news says, “This work of art appears to be called ‘I am 8-bit’ and it was created by Guy-Olivier Deveau who created it for the Parskville Canadian Open.  He did an amazing job!”

I wondered what else I could find, and came up with these:






I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!

Peach mural in Beercade bathroom

Thursday, October 9th, 2014


Peach seems pretty shocked to see someone using the bathroom. So, I had to do a bit of digging to figure out where this is. Apparently, it’s at a pretty amazing sounding place: Beercade, in Omaha, Nebraska. It’s an arcade combined with a bar that serves craft beer. Who wants to go visit?


Lego Mario Lamp

Saturday, October 4th, 2014


This awesome lamp, for sale on Etsy by PugsnLegos, is really made of Legos. Here is some more info:

“This is a Mario Brothers themed Lego light that can also be used to hold your keys, wallet, sunglasses, whatever. The lights are LEDs and they are operated by remote control. Via the remote you can turn the light on and off, change the color, turn the brightness up or down, and the lights have some color changing effects as well.

The Lego tower is approximately 27.5″ tall, and 10″ square at the base. It weighs approximately 10 pounds.”

The price was $2,200, but they’ve dropped it down to $1,200.

Awesome Perler projects!!!

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

ZenAlpha makes very cool 3D Perler scenes. Zen says, “I build all the objects and characters with Perler beads, but to save many, many hours I have a high quality print made for the backgrounds. It cost’s a little bit more but I think the results are much better. I build little stands of varying heights for any objects or characters I want elevated off the background. The Chrono Trigger one looks really nice in person since the two trees on either side are in the foreground against the glass with Crono and the party inset. Gives it a cool ‘looking in’ kind of effect.”
