Shirt of the Day: Malvin and Cobbes

Oh God.

Clearly, after last week’s challenge, Ript is determined to end me.

At least when I’m homeless I’ll have the shiniest collection of makeshift blankets ever.

You’ll find it today only at Ript. May they have mercy on your wallet.

Shirt of the Day: Big, Goddamn 8-bit Heroes

Shit, Ript. Let’s make a deal. You stop making insanely awesome t-shirts and I’ll make sure I can feed myself and my family for a few days.

No? No good?

OK – then you should probably make more of these insane pop-culture mash-ups quick before I use up all the cash I’m going to get selling my kidney on the black market.

You know the deal folks – 24 hours. Click here. You buy.

Movie Quote Monday

We are back! A long hiatus of Movie Quote Monday. I could blame Anthony or Janie, but this is really my bag. I’ll start back up with an easy one. You know the rules, you know the film throw in another quote in the comments.

I aim to misbehave.

See ya in the comments.

The Threeway: Top 3 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Couples (Anthony’s Take)

3smallWe here at The Threeway understand that the community at large has varying opinions on February 14. Some see it as a schmaltzy Hallmark-manufactured holiday to be reviled, others see it as an opportunity to express their love and (hopefully) not be pepper-sprayed, still others see it as the day before Discount-Candyageddon (that fateful day when wallets and waistlines begin a devious inverse relationship).

But lets put all that aside for now and take a look at what really matters this Valentine’s Day: our favorite sci-fi/fantasy couples.

Zoe&Wash3. Zoe & Wash, “Firefly” – Alright, let’s get this out of the way, if you’re looking for gut-wrenching, kick-you-in-the-teeth relationship dynamics, you need go no farther than Joss Whedon. Honestly I could easily make this list all Whedon couples and be completely satisfied. But I’ll limit myself to one (maybe two). Zoe and Wash sport a wonderful mix of swapped gender roles (Joss loves to toy with those). But where in many hands a “hard woman, sensitive man” dynamic comes off as preachy and sensationalistic, Whedon gives us characters that are deeply comfortable with each other and with their relationship. Indeed, watching them mess with people’s heads when they try to pick at the couple is one of the things that made “Firefly” work so well.  Continue reading

Serenity Now!

FireflyMagWhedon apparently dropped this image on his Facebook page without comment last night. Proving, once again, that he knows better than anyone else how to bait nerds until they’re foaming at the mouth.

“Making the most of your bunk” indeed.

The Threeway: Top 3 ThinkGeek T-Shirts (Janie’s Take)

If I’m not mistaken, this week’s Threeway came about since the guys figured it would 3smallmake my “loins hum like a tuning fork.”  And oh, they weren’t wrong.

ThinkGeek = wondrous

ThinkGeek + apparel = loin-humming fantasticalness

A t-shirt (Stay Calm and STFU) made my Top 3 last week. But I had no problem finding three more for this week, I just let my humming loins guide me.

geek_inside_maternity#3: As the token gal in our little group, I feel like I need to represent the women and the wee-ones. So this. I totally would’ve worn this back in my baby-making days. (Of course, if you see me in it now, it’s referring to a geeky alien). Continue reading

The Threeway: Top 3 ThinkGeek T-Shirts (Adam’s Take)

Way back last month (last week, as it were) we did our Threeway on ThinkGreek products. We had a blast but thought that we need to dive deeper. The ThinkGeek products are great. But we barely scratched the t-shirts. The t-shirts are where it’s at. So we thought we’d take another go at it this week, focusing on the shirts.

electronic_rock_guitar#3 – Electric Guitar. I love this entire line from the TG crew. The idea of shirts with electronic interactivity on them delights me to no end. The strumming guitar shirt is my favorite of the bunch (with the drum kit a close second). To bad these didn’t exist when I was growing up. I would have added them to my arsenal of weapons used to annoy my sisters. (Ed note: And to further repel potential mates) Continue reading

The Threeway: Top 3 ThinkGeek T-Shirts (Anthony’s Take)

3smallNot content to merely flirt around with ThinkGeek’s prodigious t-shirt catalog last week; we decided we needed a little more time to really dive in and pick out the gems. Made of cotton. Cotton gems, then. Like lint balls. Only…geeky…

On with the shirts!

d3e6_interesting#3: I had to include at least one “Firefly” shirt. Since I actually owned the “Curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal” model at one point, I figured I should include this, more obscure, but equally delicious, Wash reference. Be a leaf on the wind when you wear it. Continue reading

Keep Buildin’

Well if this isn’t the shiniest gorram LEGO set in all the rutting ‘verse, I don’t know what is. Sadly LEGO, denied this brilliant Firefly CUUSOO project; but the intrepid builder has teamed up with Etadyne to offer it to the masses. It’ll set you back a fair bit of coin; but considering the piece count and the stellar design (hur, hur, hur), it’s worth it if you’re a fan of LEGO or Firefly! Check out all the interior details at the project’s home page. All we need now are some custom crew minifigs.

Update: Well holy shit – they DO have the minifigs! That’s about the cutest little Jayne ever.

The Threeway: Top 3 Things Missing From My Geek Resume (The Other Adam’s Take)

While I may not bathe bucknaked in the sea of geek like the other two A’s; I more than just stick my toe in the waters. In fact I would say that I pretty much stand chest deep and usually think of going deeper.

That being said, my knowledge of geeky things is extensive, and being a trivia nerd, it has come in handy more than once. However, there’re just some things I don’t know. A few of those oversights are enough to get my geeky brethren to rush up to Atlanta. Just so they can tie me to a tree, throw copies of the Star Wars prequels around my feet, and set me ablaze.

These three things will ensure that if not corrected, I will never see the pimply gates of Geek Heaven. Continue reading
