Black Friday at Amazon

Black Friday at AmazonYeah, that’s right, Amazon does Black Friday, and it’s a pretty big deal! In my quick visit this morning, I’ve seen deals ranging from 22 – 87% off!

Some of the deals I’ve seen are The Smurfs on Blu-Ray for four bucks, a Dirt Devil for ten bucks, and a big old 60 inch TV for just over a grand, which is over half off! Sales are on pretty much everything from exciting, get your kids bouncing off the wall kind of things, all the way to super boring, like socks and pants.

Here’s their description of what’s going on over there:

Black Friday is here! Skip the lines and shop Black Friday deals from anywhere, even your couch. We have hundreds of limited-time Lightning Deals for you to choose from, exciting Deals of the Day, and savings on your favorite electronics, toys, jewelry and more. These limited-supply deals will go quickly, but we’ll add new deals as often as every 10 minutes so you can be sure to find a great deal!

You can even check to find out what deals are coming up and the deals you’ve missed, just so you can kick yourself. That’s all for now, go spend money…but less than you would normally!

Playstation 4

Playstation 4I’m a bit of a casual gamer, and I appreciate how a little fake life can help take stress away from real life now and then. Word on the streets, and from some friends of mine, is that the Sony Playstation 4 is pretty awesome. That means it would make a perfect gift!

Now, I know you can buy them all over the place, but if you’re reading this, you have the link right in front of you to buy one with two controllers! That’s right, two people can play at the same time! It’s kind of ridiculous that they don’t just sell two controllers at the standard price, don’t you think? I mostly play solo video games, but even then, I have one charging while I’m discharging the other one, it’s a lovely system.

So, go ahead, buy one for yourself, or daughter, son, nephew, niece, Dad (Father’s Day is coming up soon), Mom, pal, boss, or anybody!

Radioactive Elements Glowing Coaster Set

Radioactive Elements Glowing Coaster SetThese coasters light up when a drink is set down on them! Since they are from, naturally, they are all labeled as radioactive elements. Here is the list of those elements:

  • Radium-226 (Red)
  • Plutonium-244 (Blue)
  • Uranium-238 (Green)
  • Thorium-232 (Orange)

They look pretty cool. I haven’t seen them in person, but I really want some! Right now, for coasters, I just use some old hard drives I took from some of my old computers, which look cool, but not this cool! I just said cool a lot. Also cool, the batteries are included!

This video alone made me want to buy them. It’s so great. If you love the song as much as I do, you’ll want to click this here link:

South Park: The Stick of Truth

South Park: The Stick of TruthWow, what a game! The years of hard work that the creators of South Park have put into this game are clearly evident. Matt Stone and Trey Parker were determined to create a game that looks exactly like the TV show. They nailed it.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is a nice little role playing game. You fight enemies using weapons you’ve found or bought and skills you’ve learned through the course of the game. Other than that, this game is so different than any other I’ve played, because it had me laughing myself to tears every few minutes I played it. It’s the funniest game I’ve ever played, by a long shot.

If you know anybody who is remotely into video games and South Park, this is a great gift for them! I just finished my first play through of it, and I’m sure I’ll get through it at least a couple more times, just in this year alone.

So come on down to South Park and meet some friends of mine.

Trinity Wooden Cuff

Trinity Wooden CuffThis eye-catching cuff cuts against the grain of traditional jewelry design–instead of metal or plastic, it’s crafted from natural hardwoods.

The interlocking bands get their distinct colors not from artificial dyes or paint, but from the varieties of wood that are used: Cherry, Walnut and Wenge. The bracelets flex to slide onto your wrist, and naturally relax with the warmth of your body to provide the perfect fit.

The wood is finished with three coats of tung oil, and given a protective coat of carnauba wax. Designer Henry Wischusen uses woven bands of veneer both for their striking beauty and because the thin slices are a more efficient use of a natural resource than carving away at a block of wood. Handmade in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.

Breaking Bad Complete Series

Breaking Bad Complete SetWell, it’s relatively impossible to not have heard about, but in case you haven’t heard, the TV series, Breaking Bad, has concluded.

I’m one of millions of people who really enjoyed the show. This collection comes with a ridiculous amount of goodies. Of course you get all five seasons on Blu Ray discs. The never-before-seen special features tally up to over 55 hours! Also included is a two hour documentary!

The packaging, as you can see, is quite unique. It’s a barrel of goods. That ties into the show, of course, but if you haven’t seen it, I won’t spoil it. Now, if all of that footage isn’t enough to seal the deal for you, there are even more toys included. One of those things is a Los Pollos Hermanos apron. That cracks me up, so random, but such a great thing to include in there.

So mark this down on your list of possible Christmas gifts for people who love to get taken away by a great TV series where they’ll laugh, cry, and get a good surprise frequently.

Portable Nightlight Balls

Boon Glo NightlightThis nightlight is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a while. I can’t imagine how many scary nights as a kid that this would have fixed.

The Boon Glo Nightlight has three spheres, or balls, that sit atop the spacey designed nightlight. Each sphere can be removed and will glow in the dark for up to 30 minutes. And when the balls are in their holding place on the lamp, they can change colors according to your desire. There’s a color control slider at the base of the lamp, that can also be set to cycle through all the colors.

Now, when you remove the balls, they all glow in the greenish glow in the dark color we all know. Just imagine how handy this would be for children who need to go to the bathroom at night, but can’t reach the light switch, and are scared of dark hallways. It’s brilliant!

It measures in at 15 inches tall, so it’s just the right size. Pretty cool stuff, I think I want one!

Keep scary monsters away here.

Tetris Stackable LED Desk Lamp

Tetris Stackable LED Desk LampOkay this one is really cool. It’s a lamp constructed of colored Tetris blocks! The blocks can be stacked any way you like, as long as they are in 90 degree variations, and if they touch each other, they light up!

ThinkGeek’s description, as you’ll see if you follow the links, voices a concern that many of you may have. What happens if you stack the blocks in a solid structure? They’ll disappear, right? Well, rest assured, they will do no vanishing, or point-giving, only lighting.

If you know somebody with OCD, this is your chance to build some lamps with gaping holes and blatantly poorly placed blocks, just to drive them mad!

As far as how it works, I have no idea. I do know that somewhere, the thing plugs in to the wall, so you won’t need batteries. I’m guessing one block has a cord attached to it, then the rest hook up magnetically or something. They are lit by LEDs, so you really won’t ever have to replace bulbs.

Play lamp Tetris right here.

I was pretty curious as to how this thing looked in action, so here’s the quick little demo video of the Tetris lamp.

Iron Throne Replica from Game of Thrones

Iron Throne from Game of ThronesOkay, so it’s not the actual throne from the show, but it’s a spitting image of the real deal!

This is a 1/6 scale replica of the Iron Throne from the HBO series, Game of Thrones. See, the show is from the series of books, but the throne looks a bit different in its depictions…really, that doesn’t matter, the cool one is from the show. Although this is called the Iron Throne, it’s actually made of resin. It does weigh in at a stout 23 pounds.

The throne is 14 inches tall, so you can probably fit a baby on there, maybe even that royal baby that was just born over in England! That would be pretty funny to see actually. But really, I encourage you to get this, and name your next son Joffrey, or Rob, or even Eddard if it makes you happy, then place him upon his throne! Okay, that may be a bit much.

Luckily for you, there is no need to pay the iron price. Anyway, right now, you can get this piece of memorabilia for 10% off! Go check it out at ThinkGeek!

Pixel Heart Heat Changing Mug

Pixel Heart Heat Changing MugThis thing is cool! Or hot, when you put a drink in it.

Get your valentine a special mug that will warm their heart…or at least the mug’s heart! As you can see on the right there, the heart on this mug changes color based on its temperature. So with a fresh cup of coffee, tea, or whatever else you like to drink at high temperatures from a mug, you get a fully red heart. As the mug cools and your stomach fills, the heart will return to its lowly black state.

This is a great little gift, and even something you can get for guys because it’s kind of sort of techy. It does have an 8-bit style to it at least. But be sure that nobody throws it in the microwave or dishwasher. Those will each ruin the color-changing-ness of the mug.

Show your valentine they are loved, just like coffee.

Giant Minecraft Foam Creeper

Giant Minecraft Foam CreeperThe sun’s about to go down and you should be heading back home, but you need three more birch woods to make a stack! Chopping furiously, your iron axe breaks. The only thing left to do is use your shovel or go at it kung fu style.

Punching furiously, the sun has all but a few pixels below the horizon and you can hear the spiders and zombies coming out. It’s time to make a break for it. Only a few dozen yards out you can see the square patch of torches illuminating the night, casting silhouettes of shambling creatures prowling the edges of your fence. There’s no way you can get past them without taking damage and all that tree cutting has left you hungry.

Thankfully, there’s a mine that you connected your house that’s just behind a nearby hill. Wait! What’s that? “SsSsssSsSS…” It’s too late; you don’t even bother moving. Respawn or Exit to Title Screen?

Product Specifications Foam Creeper for fans of Minecraft Made of EVA foam As much articulation as an 8-bit Creeper could and should have Frighteningly huge and detailed Invented at ThinkGeek! Officially licensed Minecraft collectible Dimensions: 2 feet tall!
