Please proceed to the recovery annex to collect your cake. As part of a required test protocol, we will not monitor the rest of this email. You will be entirely on your own. Good luck.

10 New Shirts - Something for every geek

If you can't find a shirt you like in our offerings this week, you're probably not trying. We have 10 new shirts inspired by video games, movies, TV shows, comics, Japanese fandom, retro computing, pulp fiction (lowercase), fantasy, chemistry, physics, and astronomy. There's a polo shirt, a work shirt, and a babydoll in the mix. For those who hanker for color, we have a couple of reds, two different greys, pink, navy blue, and, of course, a smattering of black as per usual. Check it out.

Universal Network Cable - The only patch cable you'll ever need

If your images were on you'd see Universal Network Cable - The only patch cable you'll ever need

Attention boss people. Do you know why your IT department is overworked and stressed? It's because every time they need a patch cable, they have to dig through a giant tangle of every type of cable in existence until they find the right one. That's a lot of wasted hours and wasted money! Now, we know that Systems Administrator Appreciation Day doesn't come until July, but think of this--with a Universal Network Cable, your IT monkeys can just click and connect anything they want to patch in seconds. They'll be happy monkeys, which means they'll probably come fix your printer now.

Otamatone Electronic Instrument - Make the funky note sing

Get ready for an instrument like no other. The Otamatone is most definitely unique. Straight from Japan, this black music note has a strip down the stem and a rubbery note face. All you have to do is move or slide your finger up and down the stem to change the pitch. And squeeze the note's cheeks to get its mouth to open for some some crazy wah-wah or gentle vibrato effects. Three pitch levels and two volume levels make sure you'll be able to sing any song using just one note--so long as that note is an Otamatone!

WYSIWYG Electronic Desk Accessories - Paper adherence devices

If your images were on you'd see WYSIWYG Electronic Desk Accessories - Paper adherence devices

When affixing one sheet of pressed wood pulp (aka paper) to another, you have two standard options: You can chain them using some form of bent metal wire, or use cellulose polymers attached to tapes made from regenerated cellulose to "stick" them together. Naturally, the choice is yours, and tools were made to make the process simple. Our staplers and tape dispensers, though, are partially transparent to show you precisely how the process of ejecting bent wire "staples" and clear cellophane "tape" is done. Be careful: you may find the actions of these gadgets addicting enough to start taping and stapling everything!

Headcrab Plush - Don't try this at home, kids

G'day and welcome to Headcrab Hunter! We'll be heading into the desert of New Mexico today to hunt the plush headcrab. Known as headhoppers or even headhumpers, the headcrab is a dangerous beastie and not one you want to encounter. Lucky you have me, mate! I've spent my life learning about headcrabs and I know how to handle 'em so they are nice and docile... don't do this at home, kids...

High Fashion Headphones - Stylish, functional, colorful skull thumpers!

If your images were on you'd see High Fashion Headphones - Stylish, functional, colorful skull thumpers!

Now that our telephones have started performing double-duty as our music players, it seems everybody's got their headphones on all the time. They've become so ubiquitous, they're now de facto fashion accessories! Form has trumped function, though, and that's sad. What you need are good-sounding headphones with excellent features that also fit your wardrobe. Naturally, we've got you covered. These "cans" feature great sound, cloth cords, remote switches and built-in microphones for you iPhone, Android, and Nokia fans out there. Plus, they come in six delicious colors... just don't eat them. That would be silly.

Portal Companion Cube Fuzzy Dice - Keep them with you forever

Straight from the Vital Apparatus Vent come the Weighted Companion Cube Fuzzy Dice. They will accompany you on road trips and generally be adorable and squishy. We expect you will take care of them while they are in your possession. The Enrichment Center reminds you that the Weighted Companion Cube Fuzzy Dice cannot speak, threaten you, or stab you. (That paranoia you feel is totally normal.) In the event that the Weighted Companion Cube Fuzzy Dice do speak, we urge you to disregard their advice, especially if said advice pertains to the location of the nearest bakery. Keep your eyes on the road, friends.

There's darkness, and you must attack it. What do you do? Most brave adventurers would immediately think to cast their Magic Missile at the darkness, but nay! We have a better solution. The Icon LED Flashlight can crank out up to 100 lumens of radiance with just the click of a button. Silence frogs, stun lizards, break up raccoon fights, jog at night, and tell kickass ghost stories.

Drivemocion EX Series LED Car Sign - Tell 'em what you really think!

Alien 18" Figure - BIG Chap is right

If your images were on you'd see Alien 18' Figure - BIG Chap is right

There's something about an iconic movie monster that makes us positively gleeful. And even though some of you younger monkeys weren't alive when the movie Alien came out in 1979, we know you monster connoisseurs still have it in your top five. This figure measures a whopping 22" when it's standing upright, but with its bendy tail and points of articulation in the neck, jaw, shoulders, elbows, chest, knees, and ankles, we know you'll find way more terrifying ways of posing this bad boy. Detailed enough to be a display piece, but sturdy enough to be a toy, this figure is a must have for any die-hard Alien fan.

Evel Knievel Mini Pull Bike - 70s classic is back... only smaller

If you were alive during the 1970s then you probably remember the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle made by Ideal. If you didn't own one of these crazy crank-based toy motorcycles yourself, you probably knew someone who did. Either way the TV commercial seemed to play every five minutes during Fat Albert tempting you with "gyro action" as Evel managed all sorts of crazy jumps and stunts with a perfect landing every time. Decades later ThinkGeek is offering a pocket size version of the same classic stunt cycle complete with (you guessed it) "gyro action." Take one home and create a death-defying jump on your desk to rival the Caesars Palace fountain.
