In this cool video from Grant Thompson – “The King of Random”, you can learn how to make a few homemade rockets using matches and some aluminum foil. This little project is easy to do and the rockets work really well.
Just a little parody that I stumbled, which is awesome! Thanks to a post from George Takei. I often run into geeky parodies while exploring the vast greatness of the internet, but I thought that this one stood out. Enjoy!
Adam Savage shows us around his amazing “hidden workshop of wonder” in San Francisco on Tested.
The workshop is filled with notable film props, costumes, specialized tools, collector items and more. He shows us how he made a relatively inexpensive display case into something fantastic for showing off a few of his many collectible items as well as giving us a peek into how he manages and organizes his many tools, bits, accessories and more.

Nintendo also plans to release some other big titles in 2014 including a new Smash Bros., Mario Kart, and eventually a new Legend of Zelda adventure. 2014 could be setting up to be a big year for Nintendo.
Magic: The Gathering is my all time favorite trading card game, and I have watched many tournaments and other various shows related to MTG over the years, but Spellslingers is quickly becoming a my top watch.
Spellslingers is a highly entertaining show featuring Sean Plott from Day9TV doing battle with other popular geeks and gamers like, Jessie Cox, Rob Simpson and Felicia Day. The gameplay is fun to watch whether your a veteran player or if your new to the game, you might even pick up a few tecniques and a better understanding of how to play. Although the game itself is the centerpiece of this show, the banter and comedy that ensues as Sean goes head-to-head with fellow geeks is hilarious.
Spellslingers, which shows new episodes on Wednesdays, is part of the YouTube channel Geek and Sundry that features many other highly entertaining shows for geeks including the very popular web series The Guild.
