gjallarhorn

Redditor jagger393939 is definitely a lucky man, for his talented wife built him a Gjallarhorn from Destiny that fires Nerf darts. It even plays the honking noise. See it in action below. [click to continue…]

lego-christmas-story

LEGO fan Jason Middaugh has recreated the home from A Christmas Story complete with Ralphie, the family, those dreaded Bumpus hounds, and a leg lamp that actually lights up. But the best part is that the set may become a reality if it gathers enough support on Lego Ideas. [click to continue…]

chewbacca-silent-night

Work Chewbacca’s “Silent Night” into your rotation of classic Christmas songs right inbetween Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby. Shake things up a bit.

Merry Wookie Christmas from HISHE and James Covenant! The brilliant idea for “Chewbacca Sings Silent Night” was actually created in 1999 by Scott Andersen and since then his audio has been shared many times, often without crediting him. You can download the original at the link above, or better yet support his genius by hiring him for web design. With Scott’s “blessing” and in honor of Christmas and Star Wars season, James Covenant (creator of the awesome Star Trek “Make It So” video) was inspired to create this new video for our channel to wish you all a very Star Wars Christmas!

Artist Pj McQuaade is at it again with 12 new holiday cards featuring themes ranging from Harry Potter to Point Break. I mean, hey—when someone sends you a Point Break-themed Christmas card, you can’t just chuckle and throw that in the trash. You frame that sh*t.

dragon-baubles-aelia-petro-8

You know those D20 string lights we featured over the weekend? These dragon ornaments from Etsy seller Aelia Petro would be a perfect match…if she had them in stock. Hopefully she will replenish them sometime soon because I’m fully committed to doing a fantasy-themed tree next year.

Man, I wish I had these D20 String Lights when I put up my tree the other day. Part of my brain is like “there’s still time!” while the other part is like “re-stringing lights would be a pain in the ass!”.

Okay laziness, you win this round.

If you’re more ambitious than I am, now is the time to grab them. These are the kind of string lights you can have fun with year round. The bulbs can be easily replaced and the lights can be used indoors or out. [click to continue…]
