geeky terrarium 1

Adding a little bit of the outdoors to your home is as easy as putting a terrarium on your coffee table. The self-contained ecosystems are small and simple to care for, and you can get cool geeky terrariums from Etsy seller Moss Love Terrariums with no work required except ordering and opening the package. The tiny worlds feature figures like Yoda, Harry Potter, Gandalf, Katniss, and more. These terrariums would make perfect housewarming presents!

The internet can find similarities between just about any two people possible – for example, Will Ferrell and Jennifer Lawrence. It makes absolutely no sense on the surface but someone with time on his or her hands slowed Katniss’ voice down to 25% for the infamous “I volunteer as tribute” line and discovered she sounds like Will Ferrell. Like, pretty much exactly. It’s crazy.

The weapons created by blacksmith Tony Swatton on his series Man at Arms are always realistic and therefore likely to chop off a limb if you’re not careful, but this one looks like the deadliest of them all. It’s the trident wielded by Finnick in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and it has absolutely wicked looking blades. I would not want to face that weapon, ever.

Watch it come together in the video after the break…

This wonderful parody has your favorite Sesame Street characters competing in The Hungry Games: Catching Fur and it’ll have you laughing out loud. Really. Out loud.

Cookieness Evereat is back to play in the Hungry Games. Can Cookieness and her friends, Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita escape from the poking monkeys and tickling winds? Find out in ‘The Hungry Games: Catching Fur.’ May the cookies be ever in your flavor.

It’s possible this may be more entertaining than what we’re all about to see in theaters!

This feline-friendly version of The Hunger Games, retold using somewhat bored kitties, stars the ever-resourceful “Catniss” (ha!) Everdeen as she battles other… er, kitties in a cardboard arena. Pure brilliance, I say!

Check out all of the wonderfulness after the break…

These sets of nerdy nesting dolls were made by Etsy seller Rachel Anderson. Each set is handpainted and varnished with the main character from some of our favorite franchises like Doctor Who, Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. There’s even one that’s got three different sets of dolls to commemorate each of the Back to the Future movies. She’s also open to custom orders so you can create your own set of nesting dolls.

Burn a candle in honor of your favorite geeky icons! Banana Leviathan has created labels for 8″ devotional candles that feature Rose Tyler, Katniss, Princess Peach, and more. These would look great lined up on a mantle or shelf, and they would make fun presents.

The chance to buy a prominent piece of movie history doesn’t come along too often. Sure, there are auctions for costumes and props, but how frequently are locations from movies sold? Not very. An abandoned mill town in North Carolina, Henry River Mill Village, became District 12 for The Hunger Games. The location has seen better days, making it perfect for the rundown District.

Since the release of the movie though, tourists are pouring in. The owner, 83-year-old Wade Shepherd, is over it. He’s selling the 72 acre property for $1.4 million. It really doesn’t seem like a crazy price tag especially considering that the future owner could figure out a way to charge for tours. They could even stage fake reapings and set up a market called The Hob. Just think of the opportunities!

Who’s going in with me?

Raise your hand if you collected Beanie Babies and if you still have some. Now raise your hand if you’ve used them to make a movie parody… wait, you haven’t? The Online Musical has staged an interpretation of The Hunger Games that’s surprisingly faithful and more cuddly. Also, it manages to be touching while being absolutely hilarious.
