What’s the name of the Doctor?
Geeks and nerds devour knowledge like a hungry T-rex faced with a bunch of “tourists” who shouldn’t be there in the first place. While the Internet has certainly made it so much easier to find information, there is nothing like a good old book to hold in your hand.
From comic books to omnibuses (or omnibi?) to sci-fi to fantasy to horror to classics – it doesn’t matter. As Cicero said, “Anyone who has a book collection and a garden wants for nothing.”
We’re obviously highlighting the “book collection” part, and that’s why we’re giving you 7 nerdy bookshelves that will make gazing at your book collection even more pleasurable.
Donkey Kong Bookshelf
Never mind that you can’t play the game with this bookshelf, but your collection would look oh so good. The guy who owns the shelf doesn’t seem to have any books – unless I’m blind – but I can imagine my books and omnibuses on this. Plus an action figure or two.
If you like that Donkey Kong bookshelf, then you’ll also want this Pac-Man (or Puckman) bookshelf. Don’t worry, your books will be safe from the chomping Pac-Man. All you’ll have are envious visitors.
Check it out here.
This Mario bookshelf was a DIY project by a couple – obviously avid gamers. You can’t get it anywhere, but you can try your hand at making something similar if you’re into DIY, too. Alternatively, find someone who knows what he’s doing and have one made for you. I bet what you spend will be worth it.
Here’s something a little more modern, but Mario-approved for sure. The Pipe bookshelf is made from urban industrial black galvanized steel and is made-to-order. It costs $155.44, and you can order one (or two) here.
We featured a similar bookshelf about a year ago, also with this Dark Knight version, but this Batman bookshelf, you can buy.
The price tag is $180, so you might think twice about purchasing it, but hey, it IS cool. You can buy the Batman bookshelf here.
This awesome bookshelf has made the Internet rounds, but did you know that it was commissioned by a guy for his 18th birthday? This bookshelf may not be that much bigger on this inside, but it does have that sound that makes every Whovian stand up, pay attention, and run towards its source.

If you’ve got $600, and you get why this Spiral bookshelf is part of the list, then head over to briannakufa’s shop. This bookshelf is handmade, with the following materials: aluminum, clearcoat, stainless nuts and bolts, drywall anchor, and drywall screws.
Do you have your own geeky or nerdy bookshelves? Share them with us, and we’ll add them to the list!
We know it’s a serious matter, even with some trolls joining the fray. Whatever your stand is in the GamerGate issue, you’re totally entitled to your opinion.
What we have for you today is a video created by the guys at Funny or Die will either make you laugh or piss you off.
We’ll just leave it here, and let us know what you think.
We can’t deny it. Unless you’re a total foodie, and you have lots of time to make food or go out to restaurants, we mainly live off of easy-to-eat
crap food. Pot noodles, Cheetos, more pot noodles, pizza, microwaveable meals, more pizza, and sometimes the occasional homemade pasta dish.
If you’re still living with you mom, things may be a little different, though; and if she’s anything like Ming (or bentomonsters on Flickr), then you’re not likely to suffer from malnutrition.
Ming has become an Internet sensation because of her Flickr photos of pop culture bento boxes, which she created for her son. You know how kids are when they go to school, especially for the first time…it’s difficult! Remember your first day of school?
Well, Ming’s pop culture bento boxes are awesome. Whether you’re in grade school, middle school, high school, university, a cubicle, or a basement dweller, these meals will certainly delight you.

Wouldn’t you be excited to go to school/work if you were to have these creations for lunch? Then again, you’ll need mum to make this for you, unless you have the chops to make them yourself.
We love food, even if we can’t make all these yummy concoctions:
Super cool illustrator Andrew Heath took our favorite pop culture characters from TV shows, movies, and video games and turned them into colorful popsicles. We love how his ‘Pop Culture Popsicles’ series turns the likes of Walter White and Ron Swanson into frozen delights. Andrew says he’ll be making 50 prints and selling them at the 2014 Lexington Comic & Toy Con. You can follow him and the rest of his work on his Facebook.
This begins today’s series of posts all on popular video games and movies reimagined as books!
When you think about romance novels, you instantly imagine a buff, barely-dressed man with long flowing locks, clutching an equally barely-dressed busy dame. It’s not something we’d be proud to show off reading while on the train, but it’s a fairly popular genre nonetheless. In celebration of Valentine’s Day last week, Shutterstock teamed up with illustrator Echo Chernik and put out a series of romance novel covers focused on video games!
Not a fan of romance? Take a look at these Anti-Valentines Day cards!
Artist Jed Henry and traditional woodblock printing craftsman Dave Bull combined the best of the past and the present by blending traditional Japanese woodblock art and modern Japanese video games. Classic video game icons like Link, Mario, Donkey Kong, and others are depicted in the very visually appealing ukiyo style. Can you recognize the characters in the previews? Prove your gamer knowledge by checking out the rest of Ukiyo-e Heroes!
More Ukiyo-e art, you say? You’re in luck. This post is for Game of Thrones fans who want to see the world of A Song of Ice and Fire set in Feudal Japan!
It isn’t solely Mario’s world anymore! Luigi gets some much deserved love with an art book that features 32 original art pieces by 32 designers. There’s only one rule: Keep Luigi’s original colors! It’s the first in a series of art books called Game Icons, created by Game Paused, that seek to combine the best of art and gaming.
