Seasons Eatings!

It's turkey day next week and Timmy is totally prepared. He's even invented a new side dish that he's planning to unveil at the big ThinkGeek Thanksgiving Bacon Bonanza™. Since he's a generous monkey, he's going to share it with you all. Timmy's Bacon-tastic Bacon Dip is: 1 cup Baconnaise, 1/2 cup sour cream, 6 slices of pulverized Tactical Canned Bacon, and a sprinkling of fresh parsley and chives. What does one dip into the Bacon-tastic Bacon Dip, you ask? (We can't believe you're asking, but we'll humor you.) You dip the rest of the can of bacon, of course! It's bacon on bacon goodness. Besides, once the can is open, it's no longer going to last until the zombie apocalypse. Unless of course, the zombie apocalypse is triggered by an overdose of tryptophan...

The 2009 ThinkGeek Holiday Gift Center Is Upon Us

If your images were on you'd see The 2009 ThinkGeek Holiday Gift Center Is Upon Us

Timmy has been transformed into a monkey reindeer monster (not to be confused with a pony monkey monster, which can apparently have "too many monkeys"--lies, we say! lies!). What were we talking about? Oh, right. Timmy the Monkey-Reindeer has a most geektastic Holiday Gift Center where you'll find everything you wanted to know about shopping ThinkGeek for the holidays. Top sellers for those who need ideas, shipping information for procrastinators, gift certificates for those who believe in DIY presents, and much much more! Use it for yourself or invoke your ninja skills to slip the link to someone who owes you a present this year. Hint hint.

USB Christmas Lights - 480kbps holiday cheer transfer rate

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas--well, everywhere except your cube. Drab, grey, boring. You've got to liven it up, but the facilities manager has forbidden the stringing of festive Christmas lights because it draws too much power, and constitutes a fire hazard. What a killjoy, right? The good news is now you can tell that goody-two-shoes to take his OSHA compliance guideline and stick it where the sun don't shine! These super-bright and colorful Christmas ornaments are powered by USB, right out of your computer. Now, if only spiked Egg Nog was delivered by USB!

iMo Photo Frame Printer - View digitally, print physically

If your images were on you'd see iMo Photo Frame Printer - View digitally, print physically

No longer confined to shooting 24 exposure rolls and developing them at exorbitant prices, we snap away indiscriminately generating thousands of photos and then dump them onto a hard drive somewhere to sit unviewed and unloved. What's been lost is the true joy of photography and the simple tactile appeal of the physical print. The iMo Photo Frame Printer hopes to recapture some of this lost magic. Not only does it display your digital photos in typical fashion on its LCD screen, it also features a built-in printer that turns your photos into high-quality prints.

Cthulu Christmas Tree Ornament and Tree Topper - He waits, dreaming... of a White Christmas

Cthulu, the High Priest of the Great Old Ones came to this young world before there were men. In his house at R'Iyeh, he waits dreaming. What does the great Cthulu dream about? Why, living atop a majestic fir, spreading cheer to the good little boys and girls of the world, before devouring their minds in his horrible tentacled madness. Depicted in felted glory, two visages of the Great Dread: one large enough to hang from your Christmas Tree's limbs in an ornamental fashion, another to drape malevolently over the top, his many arms ever reaching for dominion over your very soul!

USB Xmas Tree - Oh USB, oh USB, such handy power sources

If your images were on you'd see USB Xmas Tree - Oh USB, oh USB, such handy power sources

The weather outside is frightful, so we're shutting the blinds, crawling into our warm computer caves and lighting up the fiber optics. Plug this little beauty into your USB port and you'll have a shining example of holiday cheer. What's that, you say? Your USB ports are full of "more important" things? What's more important than a CHRISTMAS TREE? Unplug the humping dog already. What's that you say? You don't have a USB Humping Dog? Maybe that's your problem. You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. But we have the cure for your grinchiness! Can we interest you in this fine specimen of arboreal fiber optics?

Levitron Revolution World Stage - Make almost anything hover

Magnetism and magic are often very similar, but until now, only magic could let you levitate whatever you wanted. That has finally changed with the World Stage. Sure, you get a globe that can float above the mirrored and LED-illuminated base, but you can also remove the magnetic disc out of the globe and levitate whatever you want (3oz or less). Maybe you want to make your favorite action figure hover, or perhaps celebrate your favorite energy shot by raising it into the air. The power is yours.

We interrupt this newsletter for a brief announcement about the aforementioned avalanche. Those in high risk areas are advised to stay out of the path of oncoming shirts. We have a new shirt for lovers of Monty Python and/or hovercrafts and/or anguilliformes, one for peaceful coders, one for classic D&D players, one for chemistry buffs, one for Joss Whedon aficionadas, one for our own Time Bandits, one for the superhero sysadmins out there (and, well, most *nix people), and one for the Modern Warfare 2 players. We now return you to your regularly scheduled EDM.

R/C Wooden Puzzle Dinosaurs - Mechanical Mesozoic monsters

We've seen plenty of puzzle-type dinosaur skeleton models in our time, and for the most part we like them. There's something appealingly ironic about seeing six ton lizards who lived 245 million years ago relegated to thinly cut wood. The R/C Wooden Puzzle Dinosaurs go one better and add movement and sound to this classic dinosaur format. First you must assemble of course, but once you've jacked in the included motors and electronics you're ready to rumble. Not only can you control your dino's movements via remote, he (or she) roars and reacts to sound.

If your images were on you'd see Ion Profile LP USB Turntable - Set your old vinyl free... digitally

Don't let your vinyl die a slow and lonely death moldering in your basement for years. Liberate it digitally with the Ion Profile LP Turntable. Simply plug this high-quality turntable into the USB port on your PC (Windows or Mac) and use the included Audacity software to rip your vinyl directly to MP3 (or WAV format) for playback on all your newfangled devices like the iPhone.

USB Grenade Flash Drive - Holds your most explosive data

Pull the plug and lob your old flash drive out your window (preferably after you've backed up the files, but who are we to tell you what to do?). Store your most valuable and portable files inside a miniature hand grenade for maximum style points. Unleash that little evil part of yourself that wants to blow up your coworkers. That annoying guy three cubes down who wants the same files you've already emailed him 30 times? Pull the plug on your grenade and fling it into his cube. It won't blow up, but at least a grenade to the head might make him reconsider the next time he wants to bug you about something...

U-FIZZ Drink Carbonation Kit - Carbonate your own drinks

If your images were on you'd see U-FIZZ Drink Carbonation Kit - Carbonate your own drinks

Orange juice, milk, and coffee--all healthy(ish) for you (at least, healthier than soda), but all boring. Why? Because they are flat, that's why. And not the way the Earth used to be flat, but non-carbonated flat. Well, time to take matters into your own hands. With this kit (and a few extra ingredients), you'll be able to quickly and easily carbonate any beverage you want. Add some fizz to your juice, buzz up your coffee, or revitalize your deflated soda. You could even carbonate your pee. Eww.
