MAGNETS! Seriously guys, how do they work!? I must be on one of those kicks where I want to stick things… to other things with… magic, because these things have gripped me by the short hairs (in a good way). They are fun, and geeky and allow people to express themselves while waiting for those mini-bagel pizzas to be done cooking. You can find them at perpetualkid.com for $11.99. While you’re there, you should check out their assortment of awesome bandages!
Magnets how do they work!? I don’t know, I don’t think anyone knows…scholars maintain that the reason was lots thousands of years ago.
But just because they are magic doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the living crap out of them! These are curiously strong magnets that you can shape and play with for hours. Perfect for anyone that likes to fiddle while at work or instead of doing homework. Get them at thinkgeek.com starting at $24.99. And if your geek doesn’t already have them, they will rank Buckyballs as their favorite gift of the year!
I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty, I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore (you want thingamabobs? I got twenty). But who cares? No big deal, I want more! We all do! So this year I’m helping you buy for the geek who has everything (except probably a girlfriend). With book accessories! All geeks like to show-off their books, and that they read books (that’s the main reason I own books, otherwise they’d all be digital, but digital is harder to gloat over). So you can’t go wrong with this bookend set from the most amazing game ever made: Portal!
You can get these bad-boys at Thinkgeek.com for a measly $29.99! But if you are smart and join the mailing list, you will not only get free goodies along with your order (like the eviltron), but also coupons in the emails they send out multiple times a week.
PS: To all my friends and family that may get me this for Christmas…Don’t worry about me getting more than one of these beauts, I have TONS of books that need ending.
Ever since that wonderful bathroom scene in “Elf” (our family’s favorite Christmas movie), I’ve been waiting for this album to arrive. Although “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is on there, it is a different arrangement than the movie (which makes sense, I just enjoy the movie’s version so very much) where M. Ward does lead vocals leaving Zooey Deschanel to do backup/echo. Deschanel does lead a majority of the songs, with her amazing voice that makes you think “Yeah, I guess I could like classic music…” All-in-all I like its indie, almost old-time country inspiration. They do a fantastic job keeping their timeless feel without losing their unique easy-going sound.
DISCLAIMER: If Zooey Deschanel just sang “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” on every track of this album I’d probably have an equally excited review. That doesn’t mean it isn’t good (it really is good), just that I think she’s swell, and I’m befuddled by her in every way! And if by some crazy, once-in-a-lifetime chance she reads this, even if this album sucked huge balls, I wouldn’t say it because I just want to be friends with her.
