For the kid trapped inside of you

Have you ever wondered if you were too old to buy the Lego Star Wars or the Marvel Super heroes sets?

You’re not.

You don’t need to have a kid or a nephew as an excuse to play with any  movie or series themed Lego. Check out the following unofficial kits designed by hardcore lego and movie fans. How cool are they?

Dexter:

Breaking Bad (or Bricking Bad):

And what about this “Dragon Sword Fighter Force” set (an unofficial Game of Thrones character pack) from Citybricks, known for creating unofficial play sets using customized Lego minifigs.

But what if these projects could become real Lego boxes ?

If you would like to have your favorite show or movie as a Lego set, you can submit it to the Lego Idea website. If your projects gets 10,000 votes, you have a chance to have it picked and it will become a new Lego set sold worldwide!

In recent years Ghostbusters   and the Back to the Future’s Delorean  won the Idea Project :

The next one going into production is this  Big Bang Theory kit :

Next for review is the Goonies ship! I would definitely do the Truffle Shuffle to get it!

May the fork be with you!

With Thanksgiving and the holiday season coming up, you’ll have no excuse not to step in the kitchen and give a hand. But even video geeks can have fun and (try to) cook at the same time!

Provided, of course that you have one (or all) of those wonderful items listed below:

If you’re a Breaking Bad fan (ie every normal person on earth aged 16 and beyond) all you need  is this Walter White cutting board to get cooking!

Also using the force and these amazing light saber tongs  will definitely make you a BBQ Jedi if you’re on brisket duty.

And, yes, they make “noise”….

 

 

 

If you’re not going to set foot in the kitchen, then at least lay the table like the real Indiana Jones that you are. These great monkey brains bowl will certainly make an impression (especially if served with eyeball soup).

If you’d rather drink than prepare the meal,  you can still become the king of the world with this Titanic and Iceberg  ice cube tray!

But will you drink your cocktails fast enough for the ship not to sink? (I know I would).

And if you’re assigned to the baby feeding chore, no problem with the Star Trek lightning bib AND Enterprise ship spoon!

So you’re all set now! Please save me a slice of cheesecake!

Create custom ringtones for your phone

 

phone

 

Don’t settle for the boring and annoying ringtones that come with your phone!

Let the world know your favorite movie every time your phone rings and add a custom ringtone for each of your contacts so you instantly know who’s calling!

For instance, when my dad rings, “the Godfather” theme plays; when it’s my brother, it’s the Breaking Bad music, and when it’s work, it’s the Walking Dead soundtrack….

This is not only super cool, but also super easy.

Most recent shows and all time classics music can be found  on this website for free in Mp3 format.

If your favorite movie/series is not in the list, or if you want to extract a certain part from within the video, no problem, you can totally create your own ringtone in three easy steps!

For example, I’m a big fan of The Goonies (who isn’t?). I want to get the music from the car chase between the Fratellis and the cops, at the beginning of the movie, because it’s such a masterpiece!!!! What a great ringtone this will make, and I’ll be the only one to have it!

Here is how I did it:

1.      Download the video if you haven’t already got the file on your PC. Use the free VSO Downloader and get tons of series from this streaming website.

2.      Get a software like our ConvertXtoVideo  , and use the Cut option to keep only the part that interests you, (a good average length is 30 sec, if it’s shorter the music will usually loop)

cutoption

3.      Convert it to  MP3  Format

Mp3convert

You’re done! You simply need to add the MP3 file to your phone, and select it as main ringtone or assign it to any of your contacts.  While this a no-brainer with any android phone (check out the guide for Samsung series), Apple on the other hand have made that task a little cumbersome. Fear not and  follow this tutorial!

Game of Thrones costume ideas for Halloween

I know that in my last post I commanded you to go all zombie-style this Halloween, but, since I have a soft spot on Game of Thrones,  I will also allow you to dress as a GOT character  (and all the better if you can find some dragons to go along with your costume.)

Over the last few years, Dothrakis have been a real hit. Let’s see if this year the Lannisters or what’s left of the Starks will get their revenge! I mean, if you have some scruffy black hair, simply borrow your nan’s fur coat , some of her jewelry and you’re a Jon Snow!

Check out those other great looks.

Make sure, though, that you don’t miss any detail. We don’t want you being mistaken for a Harry Potter character!!  Take a close look at each actor’s clothes in this guide.

And if you have time, here is a tutorial for a Daenerys dress. It’s so stylish I’m sure you can wear it all year round.

 

Have fun!
