Here is a house decked out with lights that do some groovy stuff to the Ghostbusters theme song by Creative Lighting Displays, which is famous for their holiday display videos. It involves “4 singing pumpkin faces, tombstones, hand carved pumpkins, strobes, floods, 2 Matrix boards and thousands of lights.”
Every time I hear this song I try to remember who sued who, did Huey Lewis and the News sue Ray Parker Jr. or the other way around? Or did I imagine the whole thing? I could probably just Google it but by the time I get around to it I will have lost interest in the question.
No, seriously. WHO HAS THIS KIND OF TIME???? If you devoted one tenth of the energy it took to create this to eradicating world hunger or I don’t know, finding a way to communicate with aliens or whales or mollusks or something, just think of what you could accomplish!!! JUST THINK.
Instead we have this. Which it cool too, I guess.
This is the sort of thing I will never ever do myself. But if you are the kind of person who does this sort of thing, here is the recipe. Even better if you live close to me and can make them and then drop some off at my house. Just for me. My husband is “paleo,” which is synonymous with “crazy,” so he doesn’t eat cookies whether they have candy innards or not. I don’t understand it either.
I’ll just leave this here.
I think this one is a no brainer. Star Trek is nerdier, Star Wars is dorkier/geekier.

Samurai Guitarist says “Ever wonder what the theme to Fresh Prince would’ve sounded like if Will came from down in the Mississippi delta? My buddy Jeff and I did.”
I actually never did wonder that. But this is still pretty cool. Steve Jobs once said people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.
This is the coolest thing you will see all day. I have no idea what this guy is saying but I like the seriousness of his affect. He’s probably saying “I have just established myself as the coolest person on Earth, bitches. Now get me a drink. Oh, no, you don’t have to because my R2D2 remote controlled mini fridge will do that for me. You go make my bed.”
This hoodie called the I Am Chewie by We Love Fine makes you look like Chewbacca from the waist up. I like it. It will probably come in handy if you find yourself in a hostile neighbourhood on Kashyyyk and want to blend it, as long as you’re sitting down, of course, like driving your car. As soon as you stood up and weren’t wearing Wookiee pants your cover would be blown.

Holy cats, this guy really liked the Movie Big Trouble In Little China, I guess. I know it’s supposed to be like this huge classic that everyone loves and everything but to be honest I didn’t even make it through the damn thing, which I recently tried to watch. No so this guy, obvs.
The ink is by Paul Acker at Deep Six Tattoos, should you want one yourself, and it is apparently not finished yet.
I know of some people who will plotz at the sight of this.
You can help make it a reality by supporting it LEGO Ideas, where user Lostsleep writes:
“This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980’s show that is still watched daily around the world. It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space. It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley. It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.
“I have recreated many classic scenes from the show, including a visit from Burt Reynolds, Rose shooting Blanche’s Vase, Dorothy Playing “Grab That Dough” and Rose rescuing her Teddy Bear from a mean little girl.”
