Oh, the Places You'll Go at Burning Man! Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie. Wizard costumes have been popular for the longest time.

Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie

From 80s kids who spent stretches of hours playing D&D in mom's basement to 90s kids who spent their school allowance on Magic: The Gathering cards to the current crop of youngsters raised on Harry Potter and his merry band of wizards, every generation of geeks has the roots of wizard fascination embedded deep within them. And while there are definitely plenty of sweet-looking wizard costumes out there, we have a feeling every aspiring wizard will really find the Technomancer Digital Wizard Hoodie more suited to their liking. Most puny wizard costumes can make you look like an insufferable sorcerer from the Middle Ages, but that's, pretty much, the extent of their superpowers.

This one won't give you the ability to fly, summon dragons, or set objects on fire either, but it will illuminate the inner areas of the hoodie, making it appear like your face and hands are being drowned in a flood of magical colors. Shop —


Projects. Gifting. Photos. Steampunk. A Glimpse Into Burning Man. Home decor lessons I learned from Burning Man. Sacred Couch, by Nico Aguilera It's been almost a decade since I made my final pilgrimage to Burning Man, the week-long arts festival in the Nevada desert that kicks off next week… but when I look around my house, I feel like I can still see influences of the Playa on my home.

Home decor lessons I learned from Burning Man

See, part of the Burning Man experience is creating a little home for yourself out in the desert. You are given a blank slate (a flat, dusty, dry lake bed) and it's up to you to create a semblance of Somethingness out of the Nothingness. People go ALL OUT, of course — constructing entire buildings furnished with carpets, couches, beds, curtains — the whole shebang. Then at the end of the week, they tear or burn it all down, and cart the mess away. Create chill/cuddle/downtempo zones Photo by Nico Aguilera It's HOT in the desert, and people need both day and nighttime places to relax. Fun fur is your friend Fun fur (the long, fake, brightly colored kind) is ridiculous and irresistible — the bright pink couch above?

Topless Robot - Firefly's 15 Best Chinese Curses (and How to Say Them) ​In just 14 episodes, Joss Whedon's sci-fi masterpiece Firefly managed to build one of the most devoted fanbases in all of nerd-dom. Properties like Star Trek or Doctor Who may have it beat in sheer numbers, but the Browncoats make up for this with their loyalty and tenacity. What is the secret of the show's appeal? Fans can and will explain the show's engrossing plotlines, fascinating characters, brilliant performances, realistic effects, and a unique visual aesthetic -- but if we had to choose one reason, it'd be the dialogue. Whedon created a vision of a human future where mankind speaks English primarily, with Mandarin Chinese added, as one might say, for "flavor" (i.e., profanity). Not only did the use of Mandarin help inform Firefly's future setting, it also often allowed the characters to express themselves in terms too absurd, obscene, or outrageous to be spoken in English. 15) Stupid Inbred Stack of Meat 笨天生的一堆肉。
