    This is the beanbag Iron Throne made by Isabell Kiko of Nerd By Night (but what are you by day?!). She even includes patterns and instructions if you want to make your own, WHICH YOU DO. Sure yours won't look as good and will start losing its beans immediately, but hey -- you... / Continue →

    This is the crocheted (I always feel weird typing that because it looks so much like crotched) unicorn mask for dogs made by Flickr user roko20. Pretty magical, right? Everyone wants to ride a unicorn. I mean, in addition to riding dragons and pterodactyls. If you could onl... / Continue →

    This is a collection of cross stitch embroidered microbes and viruses designed and needled by Alicia Watkins (links to her Etsy store where they're all available). Great, now I'm convinced I have something. Probably the measles. Psyche -- I was vaccinated as a kid! See, I c... / Continue →

    This is the Big Lebowski rug made by Etsy seller OldTymeNotions. I would have a hard time putting my feet on that. My lips, no problem. You want it, I want it, it costs $800 so neither one of us is going to get it. You like how I haven't made a 'tying the room together' ref... / Continue →

    This is the alien facehugger winter mask hand-knit and sold by Etsy seller Knitrocious ($150). It looks pretty accurate. Plus nobody will think you're weird for wearing it. And if they do, send them over to my place and I'll answer the door wearing nothing but a gas mask and... / Continue →

    Every year around this time I hang a bunch of paper snowflakes from the ceiling of the living room for a little holiday ambiance. Then I set fire to a trashcan in the middle of the room and pretend I'm an Eskimo. These are the cut-it-yourself Game of Thrones house sigil snowf... / Continue →

    This is the giant Captain Picard quilt sewn by Candy Coated Quilts (those sound sticky). Can you think of anything better than waking up to the giant face of Captain Picard staring back at you? "Tons of things." Well sure, but it still beats the hell out of a dog or cat's @$... / Continue →

    Astronaut Karen Nyberg made this stuffed dinosaur toy for her young son out of scrap supplies she found aboard the International Space Station. Hopefully not anything important like I would have done. "GW -- where did you get that big red button?" I found it. "Found it wher... / Continue →

    Come on now -- how you gonna make your own serving dish and then serve OREOS? You know what my last party was missing? Anybody having a good time. There also weren't any dinosaur serving trays. Coincidence? Absolutely -- despite what Martha Stewart might have you believe, ... / Continue →
