The idea behind Loot Crate is that they pick six to eight geeky yet adorable/simply awesome things (from plushies to t-shirts to shotglasses + others more). Then they plunk those things inside a box and ship it to you, for a fee. Yes, it is paid but I think their subscription plans are okay. See below:

Gone are the days where I had to save up on magazines just to thumb through them and awe myself with the beautiful layouts and photography. Thanks to the internet, I can continue to get the same awe and inspiration by visiting various blogs and websites. My recent stumbling is Wallpaper* Magazine. Admittedly, I fell in love with their site’s layout first. All those white and grays, combined with their carefully chosen photos and images left impressions that were somewhere along the lines of airy and classic, muted yet lovely, simple yet elegant, creative and classy.
Wallpaper* Magazine is a feast for the designer’s eyes or anyone who takes pleasure in beautifully inspired things. The site has six categories: architecture, design, art, fashion, travel, and lifestyle. Here’s a taste of what the site has in store for you:

While I am just starting out (again) with “Dragon Age 2” and killing yet another portion of my free time with “The Sims 3”, a news about an upcoming PC game has caught my eye. The game is called “Draugen.”
The year is the early 1920s and you are somewhere in Norway where there is water surrounding the place. Lots of water. The kind that does not make you think of beach parties or summer bonfires. No. It’s the kind that makes you fear that something underneath it is just waiting oh-so-patiently for the right moment to come up and… go after you.
Here’s what the game’s write-up says:
“The first teaser trailer of Red Thread Games’ Draugen — a first-person survival horror adventure set on the northwestern coast of Norway in 1923. Gone Home meets Amnesia in a story inspired by Norse mythology, Norwegian fairy tales and national romanticism, Dostoyevsky, Hamsun and H.P. Lovecraft.
A dark and harrowing tale of one man’s descent into madness, as he investigates the disappearance of the inhabitants of a small, Norwegian coastal community in 1923.”
Eager to see the trailer? I thought so.
