deviantART - The Louvre of the Interwebz

The best artwork on the web? deviantART: where ART meets application! Ok, so the artwork here really varies, but there is tons of it to look at from digital art to hand drawn concepts to some very nice photography. Take a look there and you can find a ton of nice things to look at. Here are some samples:

Geek Stuff 4 U - Darth Vader USB HUB

Straight out of Japan! Geek Stuff 4 U - Darth Vader USB HUB Ok, so it took a little looking to get to this one, but I found it. This site has tons of interesting toys. This USB hub was the first thing to catch my eye.

They also feature plenty of Geek lifestyle items like a Ketchup and mustard dispenser in the shape of a revolver.

Sure, it's over-priced, but it still should bring a smile to your face.

19 Epic LEGO Guns

Got some time on your hands? 19 Epic LEGO Guns That Actually Work. I saw this go around one time and felt it was worth a second look. It appears as though the same person made all of these rubberband or block firing guns.

Rube Goldberg

It's not as simple as it looks. . Add a touch of humor to complex engineering to complete a relatively simple task and that is what a Rube Goldberg machine is. This site tells the background behind the man who, as a cartoonist, illustrated to a ridiculous degree creative solutions to the most mundane of tasks.

Recently, the band OK GO used a Rube Goldberg machine as a visual hook to their song "This too shall pass." Here is the Youtube video. It had more than 4 million views in the first 48 hours. That is super viral!

If you feel you've got the right stuff, you can even enter in the annual contest. Next up in 2011 will be watering a plant. Good luck!

Less risky than a 401k

Trade up for Angelina Jolie or the next Spiderman movie. This one is special for movie geeks out there. If you keep up with film or celebrity industry news this is the one for you. Imagine a stock market where they give you 2 Million fake dollars to play with and trade stocks in the stars and movies that are coming out and on their popularity. That is basically what this site has to offer. I've been off of it for almost 10 years and it keeps on chugging along. #hsx

Not the jungle... This doesn't rank high on the "geek" scale, but it is a must for all the geeks out there! You have to compare products somewhere and this is a great place to go for almost anything now. The extra geek points for today go to for those who know about The Camelizer. This add-on for Firefox allows a quick way to check and see how pricing has changed over time for many of the #Amazon and Best Buy products out there. Another way to optimize cash expenditures.

Well, it is a bit more complicated than that. Check out this demonstration on Youtube.  There is a also a more portable 18-key version available on the website. Just when I was getting up the nerve to get a Theramin, this comes along...
