Grandpa Plays Video Games…Wins “Coolest Grandpa Ever” Award

I stumbled upon this video of an 84 year old grandfather playing Call of Duty and Halo with his grandsons. It is cute, hilarious, and awesome. Check it out!

Alternate Pac-Man

Ever get tired of eating those boring old dots and healthy old fruits.  Well here is a picture of all kinds of alternate Pac-Man ideas.

Star Wars Alphabet

If you want to be the coolest parent probably ever in the universe you will teach your kids the alphabet with this.  When husband-and-wife designers Emma and Brandon Peat learned they were to be first time parents they decided that they wanted to start their child out on the right path and created this alphabet series comprised completely of  Star Wars characters.

Lay Your Head Down In Style

I’m a huge fan of pillows I only have a million of them on my own bed that by the time I wake up have found their way all over my floor, however I don’t have any nearly as cool as some of these pillows.  Check em out!  There’s even more if you click on the link.

For those with a slightly warped sense of humor there is the blood puddle pillow.

Make people think you’ve been hard at work by falling asleep on a book pillow.

For the lonely we’ve got this gem.

DOS Pillow

Man I miss the good ole floppy disk, but he is forever immortalized in this cute little pillow.

Sleeping with the Moon.

Mario Bros Fishtank

Dry Erase Board Wall

Well after a bit of an extended break Geektrovert is back in force.  Lets kick it off with what the what….a dry erase board wall.  A company called IdeaPaint has created some kind of clear coat that you can paint on your wall and it will essentially turn it into the biggest dry erase board known to man.  Imagine you could write your grocery list all over your room or perhaps if you’re in an office you can keep track of stats or some such nonsense.  Needless to say I probably won’t be doing this anytime soon as I’m almost positive my friends would just erase any useful thing I wrote and replace it with a drawing of a giant penis….TMI….sorry sort of…not really.

Behind the Scenes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Here are some newly released behind the scenes photographs of my personal favorite of the Star Wars movies The Empire Strikes Back.  For more go to Mail Online.

Darth Vader and the director of The Empire Strikes Back share a tender moment. Check out the size of that noggin.

Harrison Ford aka Han Solo just being a sexy beast.

“Why you stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf-herder.”
“Hey who you callin scruffy lookin?”

C-3P0 played by Anthony Daniels shading himself from those fierce rays.

Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) and Billie Dee Williams (Lando Carlrissian) just jettin around in the Millenium Falcon.

Pre-carbonite freeze shot of the happy couple.

Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) cuttin up with some Stormtroopers.

The actors of Star Wars literally just chillin on Hoth or what we like to call Norway.

Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) being a goofball.

Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) kisses one of her Gamorrean Guard captors. That’s one way to be set free I guess.

Boy, you’re an alien
Your touch so foreign
It’s supernatural
Extraterrestrial
And you will never listen to Katy Perry’s “ET” the same way again. You’re welcome.

Geeky Pancake Art

Nathan Shields uses a griddle as his canvas and Bisquick as his paint.  Behold!  I know mine will turn out like a hot mess but I’ve got to try this.

Again I have saved the best for last.

 

Retro Gaming

Were there gamers before Pong?  Sure there were.  Checkout these photos of  Wonderland “The World’s Finest Arcade” in Kansas City back in 1968.  Before the digital gaming era emerged this is how gamers did it back in the day.  Now lets pay homage to our gaming ancestors.

 

Pinball is a classic.  I’ve spent a fortune in quarters playing pinball machines in any number of places.  I remember I used to go to the Laundromat with my mom and basically beg for quarters so I could be a Pinball Master.

Something in this picture creeps me out.  Can you guess what it is surely its creeping out other people as well.

Skeet Ball the ultimate game that tests your skills of aim, speed and hand-eye coordination.
