aaaahhhhhhKellogg’s has teamed up with, y’know, some soda people, to bring the world two new flavors of Pop Tarts – Crush Orange and A&W Root Beer. 

Pop-Tarts Frosted A&W Root Beer are bubbling with root beer-flavored filling, wrapped inside a golden crust, and are topped with sweet white frosting and brown, red and orange crunchlets. Pop-Tarts Frosted Crush Orange citrus-flavored filling will tingle your taste buds with its sweet white frosting and orange string icing.

This prompts us to ask the question: Is this it? Are we done? Is the apocalypse nigh? Are two of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse really into Pop-Tarts? And if so, which ones? I suspect Famine is a fan. Maybe Death? It’s probably Death.

wedslabyrinth2-600x405Nearly 30 years ago a movie hit the big screen and vividly defined everything glorious about the ’80s in less than two hours. From Jim Henson creatures to the timeless glamour of the late David Bowie, Labyrinth went above and beyond to transport viewers to a different world.

It was also a box office bomb.

However, Labyrinth has become a cult classic in the years since. So, to commemorate the 30th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing the film back to select theaters on September 11th and 14th ahead of the special edition Blu-ray that arrives on September 20th.

1-27Social psychologist Erika D. Price has devised a system of ranking breakfast cereals, although she apparently doesn’t stand by it.

We don’t know what criteria was used to achieve the final results—but it doesn’t matter. The results are subjective. In fact, the list will likely receive instant rejection when people discover that Raisin Bran was placed in the mid tier and Cap’n Crunch didn’t event make it into the mix.

Cg5rB8SWIAAPDfKHarry Potter fan Meredith McCardle had a brilliant idea for decorating a wall in her home.

Did I mention that she’s an author? Because that fact begins to put this project into perspective.

Using a projector she borrowed from an elementary school, McCardle traced the first page of Harry Potter on her wall then painted each letter with a high quality paint so she wouldn’t have to do a second coat.

Simple. Genius. I love everything about this idea.

death-star-fire-pitWe’ve seen Death Star fire pits before. The idea appears to have originated with the folks behind KGFirePits on Etsy. You can purchase the original design there, but the version pictured here was produced by a high school welding class—and it has an awesome, upgraded look.

download-e1461629065585From That’s Nerdalicious: One of the best things in the recent Lootcrate Firefly Crate was a little 4-pack of paper drink umbrellas based on Kaylee’s parasol. I didn’t want to use them because I only had four, but QMx has solved that problem.

They’ve released the new Kaylee Parasol drink umbrellas in packs of 30, so you can have a Firefly shindig and make sure everyone gets one.

How shiny is that?

ectocoolerThe rumors were true. We’ve just received the official word from Coca-Cola that Hi-C Ecto Cooler is making a comeback to coincide with the upcoming release of the new Ghostbusters film.

This cult favorite beverage from the ’80s and ’90s (not to mention the favorite choice of my mother for school lunches) will be available nationwide in 6 oz juice boxes and 11.5 oz cans (with “thermal ink that turns an eerie shade of slime green when the product inside is cold”) starting on May 30th.

Mermaid-Bed_1-600x474When Ariel’s sisters were first introduced in The Little Mermaid, most of them sat upon cushions inside of giant shells as they readied themselves for the day.

Now, for the littlest merfolk in your life, that luxurious fantasy can come true. The Mermaid Bed is the brainchild of Portuguese furniture company Circu and features fiberglass construction with purple lighting to give it a magical underwater vibe.

timburtonbar-drink4Restaurants and bars with nerdy themes are definitely in right now. Honestly, I’m surprised it took this long for one of these establishments to focus on the work of Tim Burton. Imagine how awesome that could be.

Okay. Stop imagining. Beetle House in NYC is about to make it happen.

Taking cues from films old and new, the menu features drinks such as the Chocolate Factory Martini, the Headless Horseman and the Bride’s Butterflies. There are even drinks based on Burton’s less mainstream movies, such as the Glen or Glenda (inspired by his Ed Wood biopic).
