This year is an important one for Harry Potter fans: it’s the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and the 10th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In commemoration of these milestones, Llety Cynin—a family operated bed and breakfast in South Wales—has recently created a fun Harry Potter-themed tea service. [click to continue…]

You get yourself a lathe goddammit. Get some wood, fire that thing up and carve yourself some LOTR goblets like the ones made by imgur user TheHarlequinLady. No toasters, no serving sets. Lathe. Something nerdy on a lathe—that’s the only way to do this properly.

A 16-year old high school student named Brian in Virginia decided to start matching the color of his shirts to his drinks “as a joke”. His classmate Chloe picked up on said joke and began documenting his outfits and, naturally, the resulting Twitter post went viral.

Unfortunately, he started this trend after Ecto Cooler went out of production for the second time. Now that would have been one hell of an outfit.

Christian Rivera, an art director with Youpanqui BBDO in Lima, Peru, came up with this eye-catching concept for a collection of Star Wars-themed cups, titled “Drink the Force.” The design features popular LEGO minifig Star Wars heroes and villains wielding lightsabers that, from the right perspective, become the cup’s straw.

It’s a clever idea that, quite frankly, I’m surprised McDonald’s hasn’t already done. Check out an additional example below. [click to continue…]

Custom PC buildsmen Maingear are partnering with big-name brands to create bespoke one-of-a-kind PC rigs, and their first is Coca-Cola themed. Mountain Dew would have been more appropriate, but at least it’s not a Pepsi PC.

This Coca-Cola branded computerbox is fitted with a liquid cooling system that incorporates a custom-made reservoir that looks a lot like a Coke bottle filled with a liquid that looks quite a lot like Coke, but isn’t. Apparently, we can expect more crazy stuff like this in future builds. The specs in this particular model include:

  • Functional glass Coke bottle reservoir
  • Custom crystal hardline water cooling
  • Unique one-of-a kind chassis modifications
  • Luxury automotive paint finish
  • Intel i7-6950X 10-Core CPU
  • Dual NVIDIA GTX 1080 Graphics Cards
  • HyperX Fury 16GB DDR4-2666
  • Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 NVMe
  • EVGA X99 Micro 2

Coffee was really bummed that the role of Captain Marvel went to Brie Larson. The bottom line is that Coffee has been in countless movies and TV shows. They must have wanted a fresher face (for a smaller paycheck no doubt). During the audition, Coffee noted that she was roasted just the day before, but it wasn’t enough apparently. Still, they were impressed with her energy—they always are.
