Game of Thrones Cartoon T-shirt from woot

I love this shirt! If you’re a fan of George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire,” or the HBO adaptation “Game of Thrones,” you’ll enjoy this shirt. It’s an adorable interpretation of the Stark direwolf, Lannister lion, Targaryen dragon, and Baratheon stag. And, of course, they’re not getting along. But they’re cartoons, so they’re really cute!

This is a one-day deal at Woot, so get it right now if you want it! Click here: shirt.woot

Denver County Fair Features Geek Pavilion!

Well, I’ve just moved away from Denver, so I won’t be able to attend this county fair. It sounds inventive and fun, and there will be gaming, robotics, Scrabble, and geekery exhibits! If you’re in the Denver area, you should check it out! Read the press release below:

Denver County Fair
August 10-12, 2012
National Western Complex
Denver, CO

This annual event celebrates the creativity and personality of Denver, with events, exhibitors, blue ribbon competitions and more! The Denver County Fair honors the fine traditions and values of America’s county fairs, which have been enjoyed by millions of people for over 100 years.

But, it’s all NEW. Although land was bought for a Denver Fair in the 1800s, that plan was interrupted by a little thing called the “Civil War” and no fair was ever launched. (That land is now City Park, by the way.) Somehow, the idea never came to fruition until NOW – in the 21st century, when Denver is a modern, bustling metropolis, forging a reputation as “the new creative capital.”

… So as we enter into our second year, expect us to do things differently than the fairs that were established last century, or the century before. We are new, we are urban and we are still pioneers!


Revolutionary Fair Design!

This year we’ve got 14 interlocking indoor pavilions, each with its own exhibitiors, vendors, stage demonstrations, entertainment and open competitions! Even our CARNIVAL IS INDOORS!
