My sister and her boyfriend got me these sweet wall decals for Christmas (from thinkgeek.com), and I have only just finished putting them up after a month of vetting their positions with my friends.

I think that they are awesome, and that they go especially well with my Tetris bookshelves.

My roommate and I are pretty in to this whole 8-bit aesthetic (in our last apartment, he spent 3 months painting his room like the Bubble Man level from Mega Man 2...sadly, that had to be painted over during the move). I have a couple of other ideas on how to continue with this motif (a...leet motif if you will), including plans to make a really nice walnut and hard maple Space Invaders end-grain cutting board (12.5" X 18.75"). Here's a rendering I did using Google's SketchUp (free CAD software) to get an idea of how it will look.

There's something really appealing to me about geeking out as much of my domestic stuff as possible as I "grow up". And now, in the interest of crass commercialism and self-promotion, I am going to make at least one extra of these cutting boards, and if anyone would like to join me in reliving their youth through video-game-themed kitchen accessories (or bookshelves), we can talk deal. I am also trying to figure out if it would be possible to make a triforce cutting board, so if anyone wants to fund my endeavors by buying one, that would be sweet.

Oh man. Triforce cutting board. I am on that like an octorok. I would definitely consider funding that.

Woot! My brother wants one too. I've gotta make Peggy's (and mine) first, but it shouldn't take long, and then it's on to gathering the power of the triforce.
