Seeing as Adventure Time’s Jake The Dog is a shapeshifter, I feel he would make an excellent bed frame. In actuality you could turn him into all kinds of furniture: a couch, dresser, dinner table, and so on. I could literally do a whole series of Jake The Dog furniture but I think you get the idea. (Edit: here he is in table form:)
Some might get creeped-out by Jake’s stare. Maybe include swappable eyes a la Mr. Potato Head?
I think kids would dig this bed. Probably not as much as this bed, which I am emailed about almost daily.

A couple of posts ago I threw out the idea of a Zelda Candle Holder (based on the dungeon torches from Ocarina of Time), and Rachel Holden decided to make it! And she did a bang-up job as you can see above.
It’s just a fake candle for now – she didn’t want to burn her house down, which is completely understandable. She explains how it was made (and what those GoT sigils are in the background) in this Reddit post.
So why can’t I just make these things myself? I’m an ideas man. I leave the implementation to others!
I suppose it’s a little weird to have a ‘dream garage’, seeing as I don’t own a car. But being such a rebel I will not only hold onto that dream, I’ll just go ahead and share it here. Haters gonna hate.
I’m sure most of you Trekkies will recognize the design of this garage: it’s based on the hangar that the Enterprise was parked in at the beginning of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. I’m pretty sure the film opened with Kirk and Scotty flying around this hangar for 36 minutes before finally boarding their ship, but it’s been awhile since I saw it.
In addition to the steel structure and array of LED lights the garage is lined with glass, making it a greenhouse-like structure to protect your vehicle against the elements.
There is also a door in the front that opens like your typical garage door:
You’ll have to excuse my use of the Tumbler Batmobile for this post, it was either that or the Ecto-1 (I need more 3D model cars at my disposal). I believe this garage would be ideal for a luxury car, preferably one that is white or silver to echo the Enterprise. Whatever vehicle you park inside, this garage was made to show off your ride — it’s essentially a big display case.
The Tumbler is a pretty big vehicle, so it’s difficult to get a sense of scale here, but essentially the current design is a wide-bay single car garage. This design can be scaled up to accommodate more cars.
This structure could also be used as the entrance for an underground car elevator, a car wash bay, or another fancy sign for a dealership.
So that’s my dream garage (and greenhouse I suppose!). I should do a series of dream houses/rooms sometime down the road. That said I did make a dream hockey pad on the other blog which can you check out here.

As part of my quest to turn anything and everything into some sort of geeky design, I present this central fireplace based on Darth Vader’s meditation chamber. Yes, a fireplace, and yes this is a weird blog.
It seems central fireplaces come in many styles, as they are usually the focal point of the room the are stationed. With their chimneys jutting straight into the ceiling, they appeared similar to Vader’s ‘Man Cave‘, and voila, a geeky fireplace design was born.
This fireplace would be able to open and close (be it manually or mechanically), to help adjust the room temperature, or to simply denote there is no fire currently.
Now if you’ll excuse me I have a hankering for some hot cocoa.

So that last post got me thinking about how great it would be for a city park to adopt a Zelda layout, enough to get me thinking about doing a crowdfunding project (still mulling it over). My thoughts then migrated to something a little closer to home – the backyard to be exact. How cool would it be decorate the yard with Zelda-themed lawn ornaments in the style of item pickups? This is a million times better than gnomes!*
These would be ornaments with a little peg underneath that you’d plug into the lawn anywhere you want. It would look like Link invaded your property and struck down all the shrubs (he has issues).
I think this would be a fun DIY project for lawn-loving geeks. I have no idea how you’d make such large Rupees though (any thoughts out there?). For safety reasons I’d want the arrows made out of rubber (or something not stabby in general, as we’ve learned from lawn darts).
*The opinions expressed by this blogger do reflect those of this blog, and should be completely embraced by you without hesitation.
I’ve always found real estate signs to be so unsightly and devoid of personality, quite the feat considering they are big bloated business cards for Realtors. You’d think the Realtor was on sale, with their name, picture, and slogan so prominent.*
Anyways, I am seeing these signs just about everywhere within a stone’s throw from my house (I’m scaring away the neighbors with my Farscape references), and I think they could be a bit more fun and a little less heavy on information. So I came up with this Monopoly design, which is quite appropriate if I may say so.
It’s all you need really: “For Sale” and a number. Additional information can be found on the pamphlet (which would look like a Monopoly property card). The familiar Monopoly imagery mixed with the all-too-familiar real estate sign scream hey this house is for sale!
Check out this other sign I designed for Hot Wheels fans.
*Realtors bug me to no end. Once in junior high school we had a Realtor talk to us for an hour. At the end she gave us a packet full of business cards, fridge magnets, pamphlets, etc. It wasn’t a lecture, she was networking! Ugh.
