Beth’s Awesome Picks of the Week – July 7th – 13th, 2013

I’m going to shift the focus of my weekly roundups to include not just awesome crafty things, but awesome craft and nerd things in general!  This week, I’ve got a whole bunch of things for you guys.

Evolution of Gaming

This is an awesome podcast by my friend Andy and a friend of his that delves into the history of gaming – Andy and Jason play all sorts of video games, on their original systems, and talk about all sorts of gaming stuff.  The podcast updates twice a week – and I think my Super NES will be powering one of the upcoming episodes, so stay tuned!  I’m enjoying the heck out of this podcast.

Perler Bead TARDIS Tutorial



Ever wanted to make a TARDIS?  Well, here’s a tutorial that shows you how to make one with perler beads!  I love playing with perler beads – it’s just so awesome to assemble a picture or something and then iron over it to melt all the beads together… it’s oddly satisfying.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Comics – Treasury Edition

2013-07-09 18.53.01


For those of you who collect the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics, or for those who are just fans of the series, this is a must-buy.  I picked this up at my local comic book shop last week, and the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Treasury Edition is packed with all sorts of awesome things.  It’s got a line art only edition of the first comic in the front, which is especially awesome to look at for this art nerd, and it also has a collection of every different cover variant for the first couple of comics – the original variants, the Hot Topic covers, the one made especially for different comic vendors – all nice and large and in bright colors.  The book is definitely larger than the comic books – it’s about 9 by 12 inches – and the art is awesome.  You can likely find it in your local comic book shop!  (For more information, check out this article from Derpy Hooves News.)

And that’s it for this week’s roundup – feel free to let me know in the comments if there’s something you think I should feature in next week’s roundup!
