Bacon Anatomy of Perfection…

I hadn’t been on Etsy for a while and thought I’d pop-in, drop “bacon ” in the search and see what popped up.

The Word Shop calls this print “Bacon Anatomy of Perfection”.  I call it awesome and suddenly feel compelled to hang this in my kitchen.  This 8″ x 10″ print is part of their “For the Love of Bacon” series and can be yours for just $12.95.

Check out their store for a lot of other great images (along with some more fun bacon ones).

Video Game Bacon – Bacon Taps

Got a Droid? Love bacon? Need a time waster?

There’s an app for that…Bacon Taps! The object of the game? Tap the bacon to score 10 points. Don’t let it’s simplicity fool you. It gets surprisingly tougher as you move on.

Self-Carbonization!!

As friends of TDB you may have come to over these last few years that I have a “thing” for carbonite.  Most specifically, Han Solo in carbonite.

The ONLY thing that I truly covet is a life sized Han Solo in carbonite.

While my dream has still yet to be realized, I have amassed quite a collection of substantially smaller versions, many of which have been highlighted on these electronic pages.

But now I have found quite possibly the SECOND greatest carbonite related product, this thanks to Lucasfilm and Disney World as part of their Star Wars weekends at Hollywood Studios

Guests at Star Wars Weekends this year will be given the opportunity to step into a “Carbon Freezing Chamber,” located near The American Idol Experience in the theme park, and have their faces 3-D scanned using multiple cameras to create a 8-inch figurine depicting themselves frozen in carbonite. It also comes with a light-up wristband.

What, what, what?!?

First thing I felt? Excitement – This is the coolest thing ever!

Second thing? Regret – Why did we book our Disney vacation when we did?

Third? Bargaining – How could I POSSIBLY get back down to Florida next weekend?

Fourth? Acceptance – I’m never going to have this.

AURGH!!!!!!

So, to any of you will either live near the happiest place on earth or are planning on already attending the family nerdfest that is Star Wars weekend…don’t be like me and miss out!  Save those pennies (it costs $99.95) and go get yourself frozen!

Better with Bacon – Beer & Bacon Deep Fried Doritos…

And we’re back…and on this first day back in civilization (and first day I’ve even bothered to get on the internets) I was blessed with this…

God bless you Dude Foods!

I would totally make these in an instant but unfortunately Better Half is (and has been) pretty adamant about us not having a deep fryer in the house. I’ll just have to admire from afar until I can convince someone else to make these for me. But please, don’t let that stop you from heading over and getting the recipe for this wonderful new marriage of bacon and goodness.

Make it so.
