Slurm Vending Machine Fridge

Slurm Vending Machine Fridge by davesgeekyideas

Thought I’d design a fun fridge that looks and works like a vending machine. This would be ideal for any soda or beer company theme (Coke, Nuka-Cola, Duff Beer), but for this post I figured Futurama’s Slurm would be best. Read the rest of this entry

Homer Simpson Desk

Homer Simpson Desk by davesgeekyideas

A desk that looks like Homer Simpson’s desk which looks like a partially-eaten donut. Not sure I can add any more to that!

The panels slide out of the way to reveal a flat desk surface. You could probably lock this up like an old-fashioned desk hutch too.

The computer monitor(s) would need to be mounted on the wall. All of the electronic lights and displays could function if you can run the electricity through the (upper) track on which the panels slide on.

Charles Mulligan’s Steak House Poster

Charlie Mulligans Steak House Poster by Dave Delisle

You can grab a high-res poster here.

I haven’t done a new poster in a long time, so I thought I’d tackle the Steak House print seen in Ron Swanson’s office. I’m not the first to make this poster, but I wanted to create a larger and more show-accurate version.

Adventure Time Syrup, Independent Thought Alarm Button

Adventure Time Canadian Maple SyrupA few weeks ago Adventure Time featured some “Canadian Maple Syrup” guards (they hail from the Breakfast Kingdom), and as a Canadian I thought they were hilarious. I mean, they were standing on guard fer crêpes sake.

Anyways I think it would be awesome if a maple syrup company produced a collectors bottle to look like this character. Granted, the dude is a throwaway gag, but I still want one.

Independent Thought Alarm Simpsons

I was in my neighborhood Staples recently (What? Even us lowly bloggers need practical office solutions), when I saw their famous Easy Button gag gift, which is a button that serves no function. So I thought if I wanted a geeky non-functioning button on my desk, it would be the Independent Thought Alarm from The Simpsons.

Sure it could be wired up to something or make a buzz sound when pressed, but I’d be happy with a plain trinket that I’d park on my desk. I feel it would be a hit with teachers and other people in positions of authority (bosses or supervisors).

I’ve been looking at electrical switch boxes and press buttons for a DIY version, so stay tuned for news on that.

RCKY T-Shirt Solicitation

RCKY T-Shirt

UPDATE: My first foray into crowdfunding has ended, and the Teespring campaign to offer these t-shirts did not reach its goal. I’m bummed because people tell me all the time to Kickstart this or Indiegogo that! Oh well, them’s the brakes. Obviously I won’t be attempting to crowdfund apparel items again, mostly because there’s so many outlets for that kind of merch online.

Recently I did the art for this Dinobots tee for 80’s Tees (the hilarious idea was theirs), so do check that out.

Use Batman And Robin To Conceal Loose TV Wires

Batclimb Batman 60's

UPDATE: My bad, there are already products on the market like this! They’re from NECA, and you can buy one now. Original post as follows:

When you go the extra mile to conceal the wires stemming from a wall-mounted TV, it looks great. Sometimes concealing wires is not an option, so here’s an idea: have Batman and Robin scale the wires like they are climbing up a building (a “Batclimb“, as it was known in the 60’s series).

I used over-sized Lego Minifigures here to demonstrate the idea, but you’ll probably be better-served by something like these.

Batman and Robin work great here because there are usually two cables hanging from the TV (the power cord and HDMI cable), so they’d cling to one cable each. If additional cables are present you could use Batgirl and Nightwing too.

There are other approaches too (such as Luke Skywalker heading up to an AT-AT), however the dynamic duo look at home climbing up the wall.

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Here is a design for your bed sheets that will make them look like stacks of money, specifically the large pile of cash that Huell and Kuby famously laid on top of in Breaking Bad.

There are a million places where you can get custom-printed bedding. Unfortunately a lot of the places I found online look sketchy, or they have production limitations (more on that in a second), or they don’t reply to my email inquiries. I was hoping to make this design a reality, but so far no dice.

The main limitation is that most places will project a single image onto the top of a bed sheet. I want to go a step further and project images onto all sides of the sheet, so you can see the sides of the money wrapped around the sides of the mattress.

If you know of a reputable custom bedding place that can do a “wrapped graphics” approach like this, please let me know in the comments. My goal is to make one for myself and share the art (in several bed sizes) with everyone.

Notes: above is a queen-sized bed, with life-size bills. If I was able to get this made I would include Breaking Bad characters on the bill faces too.
