Because it's nice to gather with fellow geeks in the chilly embrace of air conditioning.

Hail and well met, my dudes!

You're browsing the internet one summer night from the comfort of your air conditioned apartment outside of DC. One of those nights where you can REALLY tell that you live in the Swamp - the air is sticky and thick, even the mosquitos won't brave it. As you scroll, eyes idly tracking through your feed - WAIT! that's a cute dog gif, okay, continue - you come across a listing that grabs your attention. "ThinkGeek Trivia Night on 8/17/2017!" it reads, your finger halted in its unending scroll. "Yes..." you think to yourself, "yes, that will do just fine." You click through, registering for tickets before they can sell out. Distracted by the allure of a night of air conditioning, delicious beverages, and geekery, you don't notice the creeping Goblin behind you until it's too late. ROLL FOR INITIATIVE!

Want to know what happens next? Join us on Thursday, August 17th for Geek Trivia Night at Jammin' Java in Vienna, VA.

Make sure you roll well for INT, because we're going to Knowledge Check you at every turn! From Star Wars, to DnD, to physics - no trivia topic is off limits!

Some of you may remember that back when we used to sell a lot of caffeinated food products, we had a caffeine counter on the site that looked a little something like this:

Over 967,676,163 milligrams of caffeine served by ThinkGeek to its loyal fans since 1999. Wowzers! (from August 3, 2009)
Imagine what it'd be now! Fond memories of the caffeine counter led us to create a new counter in honor of the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21st: the Eyeballs protected counter, which you'll find on Starstuff. Check in occasionally to see what we're up to. (Note that it's manually updated currently - the coders are super busy - so please be patient with the update monkey.) And don't forget to get your own ISO 12312-2 protection before the solar eclipse, even if you're in the path of totality - Timmy likes your eyeballs!

TIMMY'S ROLLING OUT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON!

Yep, it's that time again. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Run, don't walk to your sewing machine, knitting needles, crochet hooks, hot glue guns, bedazzlers, and the kitchen (because you're going to need a snack). Timmy needs some new threads for SDCC in July & has put out the request for costumes!



Many moons ago, we started this project, and Timmy's personal costume closet has become a source of envy for every ThinkGeek monkey (and some fans!) Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the volunteers who have donated their time and skillz towards making Timmy the best-dressed monkey ever. It's hard for us to express just how much we appreciate your help in keeping Timmy clothed all year long. (He'd run around naked if we let him have his way! Eep.)

Want to see Timmy model your genius creation? Check out his costume wish list below, take a gander at his existing collection, and sign up to volunteer!

Our most coveted costumes, with the already taken suggestions struck through:

We welcome all your ideas and suggestions, too!

If you sign up below, we'll be in touch via email to confirm your costume pick to ensure maximum costume efficiency. (Ten people working on the same costume means we'll have to choose favorites and that's no fun.) Timmy's measurements are below for reference.



Timmy's measurements

Height: 8"; Chest (all the way around): 9"; Neck (all the way around): 8"; Arm (shoulder to end of hand): 3.5"; Shoulder to wrist: 2"; Tips of fingers to fingers across shoulders: 10"; Inseam: 2"; Outseam (hip to bottom of foot): 3.5"; Head (where a hat would fit): 8"; Height (tip of head to bottom of foot): 7.5"; Tail length: 5"; Width of face across nose: 2"; Width of feet (so you can get pants on over them): 1.75"; Neck to hip (for shirts): 3". Pretty sure that's every possible measurement, but let us know if we missed one!

Your deadline, should you choose to accept it

Timmy and his entourage will leave ThinkGeek HQ on July 17th, and they'll need some time to organize and get his bags packed. So the deadline for your costume to arrive at the HQ is July 12th, 2017.

Where to ship your creations

Please address your costume to:

Timmy's Volunteer Costuming Corps, ThinkGeek

11216 Waples Mill Road, Suite 100

Fairfax, VA 22030


Where will Timmy wear your work?

All over the world! At conventions and geeky gatherings, fundraisers, and premiers. He'll debut his new costumes at SDCC this July, though. We also display all of his costumes in our conference room, and in our Timmy costume Flickr album where you'll be credited so that others may bask in the glow of your stunning artistry forever.


That's it! If you have any questions or need more details, please comment below and we'll update this post with the necessary information.

We are already so excited! Thank you, everyone!

You might have seen a meme going around on Facebook about ten bands you've seen live (one of which is a lie). Here at ThinkGeek, we decided to come up with our own spin on it: nine sci-fi and fantasy-themed musical acts that we want to see live but can't because they don't exist:

  1. Trogdor from Homestar Runner
    Okay, so technically he's not a band, but he has his own song, and he travels around the countryside burninating the peasants. We would buy tickets to see that and sing along. "And the Trogdor comes in the NIIIIIGHT!"

  2. The Mary Janes from Earth-65
    Face it, tiger. We wouldn't miss a chance to see our favorite web-slinging drummer gal,  Spider-Gwen, in action.

  3. Dethklok from Metalocalypse
    We'd happily risk life and limb to jump in the pit for Hatredcopter! Experiencing Nathan Explosion's transcendental musical stylings in person would be a rare treat indeed. After all, it's not every day the world's greatest cultural force (and seventh largest economy in the world) puts on a show that people might just actually die to see.

  4. Weird Sisters from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    Some of us feel like Ginny Weasley is a kindred spirit, and she was a big fan. Plus, bagpipes and magically-appearing stage. And also, we'd want to wear the concert shirt since it's an excellent reference to Macbeth despite the fact that all the members of the bands are dudes.

  5. Disaster Area from The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
    This is the only show in this list where we don't want front row seats. Ideally, we don't even want seats on the planet. We would like the "I Survived a Disaster Area Show" bumper sticker, though. Hotblack Desiato, people. Hotblack Desiato.

  6. LĂșcio from Overwatch
    Oh let's break it down! Getting tickets to LĂșcio's sold out concert in Numbani is going to be tougher than breaking a good Hanamura defense, but attending would be the concert of the lifetime. Plus, we heard a rumor that Hana Song will be there!.

  7. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem from The Muppets
    Unquestionably our favorite house band of all time, they're one of those groups from the 70s who have held up amazingly well, especially considering their psychadelic lifestyle. We have to hope they wouldn't be one of those bands who do a half a dozen "final tours." (But we'd probably buy tickets to all of them if they did.)

  8. Sex Bob-omb from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
    The fun part about a Sex Bob-omb concert is that you never know what you're gonna get. Are you just going to get a set of just the hits? Are you going to see Scott Pilgrim kick someones teeth in and use a flashy sword? Who knows, but you'll get some great pictures for your social media either way.

  9. Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes from Star Wars: A New Hope
    Ahh, woodwinds. Doesn't it make your heart sing a bit just to hear the cantina band music? Yep. Us, too. Now imagine experiencing that live in some wretched hive of scum and villainy. Just don't seat us next to Greedo.

  10. And this one is yours! What band did we leave off that you think should have made the list? Who from sci-fi or fantasy would you be first in line to see if only they existed?

Historical events on this day. Video games coming out. Genetic manipulation of bananas. Pretty much whatever's on his mind at the time.

Oh, and one lucky respondent will win a $25 gift card to ThinkGeek. So tell us what you think!
