The Art of Nemo Gould

Dark Roasted Blend reminds us of the artist Nemo Gould, who we’ve mentioned before. And his site, Nemomatic, is worth taking another look at to see what’s new (and what we’ve missed in our other jaunts over there). The...

Own Your Own Lost in Space Robot

This is unbelievably cool. And like most things truly geekgasmic, it’s beyond the expense account of most of us. So I highly recommend going to the B9 Creations website and drooling to your heart’s content: but the gist is this...

ElmoSapien: Daniel H. Wilson, Call Your...

Okay, you might think that chimeras, in the genetic splicing sense, are terrifying and an affront to God and man. But here we truly have a situation where science has Gone Too Far: somebody has mashed up Elmo with a RoboSapien, spawning the...

Snapping Pumpkin!

Well, over on Daily Kicksplode we posted a bit about the power of a snapping turtle. During this time of year, however, you would be well advised to watch out for snapping pumpkins. You think, hmm, that pumpkin looks a bit odd, then before...
