The Star Trek marathon is on, and you got a hankerin’ for some pizza. ThinkGeek has you covered with their new pizza slicer… in the shape of the starship Enterprise. This officially licensed kitchen gadget sells for about $25 and features a stainless steel blade and zinc-alloy chromium plated body.
Halo: Reach is nearly here. September 14 is the official release date, though some fans may be able to secure their copy with special Midnight Madness events near them. As we noted before, the game will be offered in several flavors, with lots of extra goodies and bonuses bundled with the special editions. For just the standard game, look to pay about $60. To secure the Legendary Edition, expect to shell out $150. Needless to say, Halo: Reach is exclusive to the Xbox 360.
For those that may have forgotten or didn’t realize (like me), May 25th is Towel Day; an annual, international celebration of the late Douglas Adams (author of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently, and others). To mark the occasion and honor his memory, you should carry a towel with you everywhere you go. In case you don’t have a towel (or don’t know where your towel is), ThinkGeek conveniently has one available for purchase with the ever-useful, and friendly, advice “Don’t Panic”. The simple, straightforward towel measures 27″ x 52″ and costs approximately $16. Alas, you won’t be able to get it in time for today (unless they have some interesting time-travel delivery option), but once it arrives you’ll be set for whatever life throws your way.
Available from ThinkGeek. Retail price $15.99
Happy Towel Day!
Star Wars weekends begin tomorrow, May 21, 2010, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida. Combining two of my favorite things, Star Wars Weekends are an annual event at the Disney park celebrating the Star Wars saga with special events, shows, and memorabilia. This year they are celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. Hosting each of the four weekends this year is Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) and Ashley Eckstein (voice of Ahsoka). For more details for the each of the four weekends, check out the Disney Star Wars Weekends website.
