Meant to protect your Nintendo DS Lite and DSi from scratches and scrapes, this kit comes loaded with a plumber-style overall padded case and a Mario block stylus for easy gaming. If you don't have a Costco in your area, you can also order one for your kids, nieces, nephew, or yourself (I won't judge) on Amazon for $15. But before you whip out your credit card, tell me — do you love it, or would you rather leave it?

Beyonce spent the day on the set of her new movie yesterday, but it's not all work and no play — last night she kicked up her heels and threw a dance party for her sister Solange's 22nd birthday in LA. It seems like no event is complete without Samantha Ronson spinning these days, and of course Lindsay Lohan was right there to hang out by the booth. While Solange wins the award for most attention-grabbing dress, she made sure to keep the dance floor rocking all night long by asking that Samantha play plenty of her sister Beyonce and brother-in-law Jay-Z's famous hits.
So you should all know by now, I love Mario just as much as the next geek. However, I would have to think twice before wishing he was a real live person! I've been putting off posting about these textured (and scarily lifelike) photos of Homer and Mario 'cause they kinda freak me out!
Seriously though, I gotta hand it to the devoted dude over at Pixeloo, because he really put some effort into "un-tooning" my fave plumber and the number one dad of Springfield in some serious weeklong sessions of Photoshop. To hear about how he did it, just read more
It's hard to believe that Mario has endured so many changes in his power-ups over the years! This interesting power-up evolution chart which was featured on TechEBlog, displays Mario in most of his power-up personas. Some of my faves include the froggy suit and Kuribo's Shoe from Super Mario Bros. 3 as well as the helicopter in Super Mario Bros. for Game Boy. I'm just about to save the princess in the New Super Mario Bros for the Nintendo DS and although it's not on this chart, I'd have to say that the mega mushroom that supersizes Mario is now my all-time fave.
Mariah Carey went with a pretty standard skin tight LWD to take on hosting duties for TAO's New Year's Eve Party in Las Vegas. She had no problem posing with what looks like a delicious cake, but something tells us that Mariah skipped out on dessert. When asked about her New Year's resolutions, she said, "I should have them, but I've already done them," referring to her dieting habits in 2007. We have to agree that she looks pretty fab, which can only help in promoting her new album next year.
Lots more pics including Mario, Da Brat, and Kelis, so just read more
Edible Geek: Super Mario Cupcakes
Could these edible geek cupcakes be any more picture perfect? With the recent release of Super Mario Galaxy, I can't think of a better excuse to indulge with some Super Mario cupcakes covered with ghosts, stars, mushrooms, man-eating plants, gold coins and Mario himself.
All sorts of random celebrities came out on Thursday night for the La Dolce Vita Benefit for the Sarah Ferguson Foundation at Cipriani in NYC. The original Fergie happily posed on the red carpet with an equally excited Brandy and Natasha Bedingfield. LL Cool J asserted his status as number one. Meanwhile, what happened to Jason Lewis' hotness? Where did it go? Hopefully it'll be back in full Absolut Hunk mode in the Sex and the City movie. I wonder if Natasha sang the song that will forever be The Hills theme song in my mind? Fun times.
