Hello all! Since we’re steadily approaching “The Holidays,” I thought I’d put together a fun list of Gadgets, Goodies, and Overall Geeky Gifts for that special person in your life, even if that special person is you! I hope they inspire that warm feeling inside… AND even if you don’t celebrate the Holidays, most of these ideas are still good for year-round gift giving!! Feel free to add to the list in the comments!

I know there’s tons of Geeky-Nerdy-Goodies out there….I hope this list at least gets you PUMPED for the season! Happy Holidays!!
Who hasn’t had the desire just to be someone else for a while? Dressing up is a way of creating an alter ego and a second skin which one’s behaviour can be adjusted to. Regardless of the motivating factors which cause somebody to acquire a costume, the main principle remains the same: the civilian steps behind the mask and turns into somebody else…. ‘Just the two of us’ deals with both: the costumes and the people behind them.”
I think his images are pretty amazing! One thing Pichler discovered: “In the beginning I thought I would get to know a lot of nerds, but I discovered that most of these people have settled lives. They have families and they are integrated into social life…” What do you guys think?
I realize I might be late to the FANDEMONIUM surrounding AWEme’s Tony Swatton, aka “MAN AT ARMS”, but I’m on the bandwagon NOW.
On the AWEme’s Youtube channel you can expect to find things like Amazing Geek-Inspired 3-D Chalk Art and other various nerdy videos, but it’s their “MAN AT ARMS” series that really gets your blood pumping…. Because every Monday they post a video of Tony, a master swordsmith and propmaster, forging iconic weapons from video games, movies, and TV shows.
The videos/episodes are SUPER cool and are about 5 to 10 minutes-ish long. Totally worth it.
*Note: DotD has done a Man at Arms post before but I wanted to do a “meatier” NitK post… hope that’s cool*
