Just a few short years ago, the word Geek still had negative connotations attached to it. Companies didn’t really make products designed specifically for those of us who proudly label ourselves as Geeks. Today, though, all of that has changed. It seems that nearly every company now sells products aimed at our Geeky side. You can find everything from shower accessories to jewelry – and everything in between! There are several websites dedicated to selling nothing but Geek items. If you know where to look, you can even find some amazing Geek furnishings for your home!! Scrabble Furniture Periodic Table Nintendo Chair Captain Kirk Chair Geek Shower Geek Door Lock CD Chair Book Chair Pac-Man Shelves Pac-Man Coffee Table LEGO Couch Number Keys Seat Rubik’s Cube Tables Calculator Chairs Pirillows! These are just a few of the things that I’ve come across on my travels across the web. What Geeky furniture have you seen, that I may have missed? Some of the furniture pictures were also featured in a blog post on Geek.Ology.

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed I smell like myself, since I don’t really use any type of fragrance, other than my deodorant. I usually use chapstick, which may smell like cherries or mints. I have not purchased any kind of cologne over the past several years – since college! I never thought I could find a scent that was Geeky enough, so I stopped trying. I was happy when my friends at ThinkGeek gave me a chance to check out their newest scent… Red Shirt. Bright, clean and direct with top notes of green mandarin, bergamot and a hint of lavender (your hope), finishing with base notes of leather and grey musk (your smoldering shoes after you’ve been vaporized). Smell like the future, because tomorrow may never come. It’s strong, for sure. But it’s very Trekkie smelling. I kept sniffing and sniffing the bottle, because I like it. You know you want to wear it… I will be! If you really want to impress the ladies, you’re going to be ordering some today. Red Shirt cologne – because tomorrow may never come!

Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed Setting phasers to stun, Captain! Shoot to kill! I have two phasers here! It’s like a classic Star Trek phaser, with several different settings. Don’t you wish you were this cool? You can toggle whether or not the light shines through the phaser or not, or you can pop out the smaller part to carry around with you! Do you see the light? This isn’t enough for you, eh? You say you want a Star Trek communicator, as well? Oh, well I have one of those too. So hah! In your face! This is nice little set, if you happen to love the classic Star Trek. I was more a fan of the Next Generation, but not so much Enterprise. It just didn’t do it for me. What are some other toys from the original Star Trek? Oh yes! How could I forget my cute little Tribble? You have to be careful with those. They’ll multiply before you know it. In the 23rd century, an enterprising trader named Cyrano Jones procured an interesting and adorable little creature. These tiny furry beasties had a calming effect on […]
