You might have heard of the Birchboxes if you’re fancy, or the BarkBox if you’re a dog. But now us nerds have our very own monthly subscription box appropriately called Loot Crate!
How It Works
You subscribe for one of three available plans, all under $20. Each month you receive 6 to 8 hand-picked products focused around a geeky theme.
The theme for August was CAKE, and if you’re a Portal fan like I am, you’ll understand why.
It came with:
- – Caffeine Power Up Shirt – Shirt Woot!
- – Walking Dead Mystery Minis – Funko
- – Aperture Labs Lanyard – Valve
- – Aperture Labs Wristband – Valve
- – Aperture Labs Tattoo – Valve
- – $5 OFF Shirt Woot! Coupon – Shirt Woot!
- – Portal Stickers – Loot Crate Labs
- – Jelly Bean Pyramid Pack – Jelly Belly
So basically, if you think Christmas should be once a month sign up for LootCrate– lootcrate.com/girlgonegeek!

Check out today’s (Mar. 3rd) Tee Fury Star Wars design by Steve Thomas “We Are Family”. Here’s what he had to say about the concept:
“The design was inspired by the family decals you see on the rear windshield of minivans and suv’s alike. Sure there are other Star Wars decals, but from what I could find, they either have a stormtrooper helmet or Vader helmet. In mine, a few of the core characters are represented (the good, that is). Perhaps I should do a design for the dark side of the force later on.”
This would also be great as an actual car decal, possibly in the future Steve? If soccer moms put this on the back of their mini vans they’d be the coolest moms on the block! But until then buy this from Tee Fury today for only $10 and you can settle for being the coolest gal/guy in the galaxy.

I first saw these Novel-T shirts on Gaming Angels and I fell in love! Novel-T’s are jersey’s for the all-stars of literature. There are two teams, the American Canons and the National Puncs. They have either the author or a character’s name on the back, and an image associated with that author/character. The shirts cost $24.95 and are made in Brooklyn. You can order them here and they are available at select Borders Bookstore locations. Also $1 of every Vonnegut or Trout shirt sold is donated by Novel-T to Doctors Without Borders and $1 of every other shirt sold is donated by Novel-T to 826NYC.
My favorites are Poe (with the Raven), Thoreau, Quixote and Gatsby. I think the Bartleby and Emily Dickinson shirts are funny. I also think they could have picked a much better image for Alice in Wonderland than a cupcake. I will probably get one in the future if I can narrow my choice down to one. I hope they do more of these! Check out the Novel-T website to see all of the shirts I put a few more I liked in the slideshow below.
