Twilight Toilets

Quick update! I just saw this on The Mary Sue.


I made this #2: Kitchen island

I just completed a project I've been working on for a long time. This cabinet has been the bane of my existence. Good riddance!

Actually it came out pretty well. And yes, I forgot one of the pulls at home. It will get there soon.

Next project: counter top!

Super Mario Stuff That Must Be Seen

It's been a very Mario kind of day.

Thing #1 I have to share comes via GoNintendo:

The cover of the final issue of Nintendo Power. This is the same layout as the cover of the first issue from 25 years ago with vastly improved clay figures and a newly added flag pole to signal the end. I was thinking it would be sad to see the very last one, and then they went and did this and it's so awesome! How can you see this and be sad? I think it's a nice way to wrap things up.

Thing #2: this amazing stop motion video. This is actually the third one these guys have done and all the figures were made with those bead kits that you bake to melt the plastic together. It always reminds me of Teeny Little Super Guy. I call him Teeny Little Super Mario.

To see a making of video hit the jump. Make sure to turn on the captions unless you are fluent in Swedish. I'm somewhat passable in Swedish Chef.

Zeddy is abandoned in the woods! How did I miss this?

Poor Zeddy. Somehow this was a thing that happened back in September and I never heard about it! Zellers officially abandoned Zeddy. It's both sad and hilarious! Did you know he lives in Sarnia?

Don't worry, though. Apparently he has been adopted as the mascot for Camp Trillium. Yes, for real.

New Nintendo Wii Mini

Here's a strange thing. Nintendo is launching a smaller, less costly version of the Wii for the Christmas holidays but it cannot play GameCube games or access the internet. Weirder still, it will only be available in Canada, at least for now. Since when do we get exclusives like this? I can kind of see parents buying this to hook up in the kids' bedroom, attached to one of those Disney Princess TVs from Toys R Us. I don't know why else you'd want a crippled Wii console, but I love the boxy look. Yup, I'm one of those freaks that likes it when their toys look like toys. Forget you, Apple.

I guess this could work at the cottage. I wonder if it has collectible potential.

And now for something silly

Warning: strong language. And other weirdness.

Who do the Ghostbusters call?

An announcement about a new Ghostbusters comic caught my eye today. IDW publishing is relaunching their Ghostbusters comic with a new cast. That is not the part that stood out to me, though. It was that Janine has been promoted! There she is on the cover.

The storyline seems to be something like some demon or other actually defeats the previous ghostbusters and a new cast will be taking on the job, presumably to save them at some point.

You can read more about it here.

All the Wrong Questions

Earlier this week, this book appeared in my house. Until then I had absolutely no idea that there was a new series by Lemony Snicket. All I know about it so far is that this book came out on October 23, it's called 'Who Could That Be at This Hour?', and I will be stealing borrowing it from my little brother soon. You can have a look at the official website here, but don't tell anyone. It's a secret, 'K?

Impressive Lego Music Video

Someone with too much time on their hands made this amazing music video for Foster the People's Houdini using Lego people. I actually think it's as appealing as the real video. Also, the song is good. Check it out!

An Oddly Prescient Muppets Sketch

Take a look at the finale at 7:15 of this Pigs in Space meets Star Wars clip. It's like the writers could fortell the future, isn't it?

Awesome laptop stand from Ikea

I wanted to mention this laptop stand because it's something I've needed for a while and it's such a good deal. The stand is only $5 (no extra fan built in or anything)and it comes in black AND super-awesome green! Just for you,Wood Wool and Stone. It's called BRÄDA, from Ikea.

Hit 'read more' to see a pic of my laptop enjoying its new home.

Doc Brown vs. Doctor Who Rap Battle

The Misleading Headline of the the Day

MSN was carrying a news story titled "Restoring Ancient Organs in Transylvania". My first impression was way more exciting and gruesome than what the story turned out the be about. Also, there were no cartoon vampires. Which goes without saying, I guess.

Fix-It Philip Jr.

I made this Fit-It Felix Jr. cake with a Super Mario pan today for my brother's birthday party. After supper I'M GONNA WRECK IT!
