Ready for this week’s collection of interesting and unusual news? I sure hope so! Now, time to dive in. Some of the things I found: X-Men Days of Future Past magazine covers, a velociraptor cage for sale, and a handmade plush BMO. You know you want to keep reading.
X-Men is my favorite comic series, therefore, I am super excited for this movie. I’m super excited about seeing all the characters together, and am hoping it will all work together(but let’s be honest, I would probably still like it even if it doesn’t turn out to be great). All of the cast was revealed this week; you can see all 25 covers at the link.
I personally quite like the 12th Doctor’s clothes- it’s a nice mix between traditional and modern clothing. Thoughts?
Who wouldn’t want their very own velociraptor cage? It certainly would be a conversation starter when you have guests over.

This is very sad news. iPods have been a crucial part of my life since I was about….9? Curse you, ubiquitous iPhone.

I love SourceFed. I love SAO. Therefore, I loved this review. (Look at me, using my literary terms/fallacies knowledge).
Food and geeky things? Pikachu Chocolate Roll Cake? TMNT cake pops? A PUSHEEN CAKE? I want it all. SUBSCRIBE.
BMO is one of my favorites from Adventure Time. AKA I need this. The shop owner also makes a plush Lemongrab, Finn, and LSP.
I desperately need this shirt in my life. Dinosaurs and unicorns are my favorites.
That’s one way to liven up your bookshelf.
