Nerd Buy of the Day:
YOU’VE GOT MAIL: GAMER AND GEEKY THEMED CARDS
When was the last time you sent a physical card or letter? Who doesn’t love uncovering an unexpected goodie hidden in the mailbox among junk mail, bills and catalogs. Surprise someone with a special notecard featuring Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, Star Wars, Alice in Wonderland and rainbow pixel hearts. The cards are extremely affordable at only $3.50 each from RainbowDarkness on Etsy.
Emily: Does a Rancor count? Because definitely that. Otherwise, probably a plain ole dragon. Bar-b-qs would be excellent.
Alexi: I want a pygmy elephant (even though its not mythical), that would be the best. A pygmy unicorn would be pretty cute too though.
The Bold Bones: Pixel Sugar Skull T-shirt
It seems like skulls and neon are everywhere lately. With skulls being a video games staple from Game Over to Dr. Wiley, it was only a matter time before we saw the resurgence of video games skulls in fashion. 8 Bit Apparel introduced a neon Sugar Skull T-shirt ($24) also available in white or as a purple tank ($22)

I’m excited to share this unboxing photoset of the indie video game console Ouya. As a backer I got my hands on an early console prior to the scheduled retail launch later this summer.
Ouya comes with everything you need for easy setup:
- an Ouya console
- one wireless controller (with batteries)
- cables for setup (power and HDMI)
The console box itself has the etched Angel List that includes the names of the $10,000 tier backers and their place amongst the 63,416 backers who helped bring Ouya to market.
The controller has the heft and feel of a traditional console controller. The touchpad area works well; although I’ve only really used it for moving an onscreen cursor.
The only out of place thing to mention is the included booklet doesn’t have setup instructions or include any type of user manual; it’s just a safety guidelines and information booklet.
Now I’m off to starting playing around with this new console and see what all it has to offer. Stay tuned for my impressions post coming soon on the Ouya. Meanwhile I’m counting the days until I can play Airtight Games’ Soul Fjord.
Do we have any followers who supported/pre-ordered the Ouya? We’d love to hear what you think!
Couple has really awesome Batgirl/Nightwing wedding cause they’re awesome.
This is too cute to handle! (And just subtle enough to work)
