Bringing you things that have me drunkenly infatuated. Or is it infatuatingly drunk? Either way, it's things and places I love.
For (probably a long) while, some of the links may seem like old news. This is because I currently have a backlog of pure awesomeness to sort through.
Whovians rejoice! Two more of the ‘missing, presumed wiped’ episodes have been found! One being with the First Doctor and the other with the Second Doctor. The BBC have released small clips from each episode.
Keeping in line with finding missing things, scientists believe that they are closer to finding what is commonly called ‘the god particle’ in their efforts to find out how life, the universe, and everything started.
From one scientific field to another, new species are still being found. Psychedelic chameleons and monkey’s with Elvis-like hair-do’s amongst them.
Is anyone excited about seeing another instalment of Men in Black? I loved the first two, but so few movies do well with a sequel, let alone * sequels *. The trailer looks pretty cool though and I guess after saving the planet from aliens, they needed another angle.
Ever bought a knock-off product? How close were they with the details? Many knock-offs seem quite obvious, but there’s the odd one that is almost a perfect replica. A museum in Germany offers some of the more outstanding knock-offs a place, exhibiting the counterfeit next to the original.
Love it or hate it, it seems that Comic Sans is going to be sticking around for quite a long time. You may have seen it used in newsletters, passive aggressive notes at the office, your flatmate leaving you a note, but what if popular brands abandoned their well-known fonts and just used Comic Sans?
Are you looking to raise your offspring to be good little geeks? For their first book this Christmas, why not buy them the My Little Geek ABC book? Naturally, you can also get the accompanying iPad app.
