Yes, folks, as is states in the title, today is my birthday! After an entire year of gaining XP, I've finally leveled up. So other than that, this Round-Up will go on as usual. Please enjoy.
I grew up watching the original Transformers series. I loved, and still love Transformers. Yes, I even enjoyed the Michael Bay movies. Why? Uhhh.. Transformers, that's why! I have no reservations about saying that on this site, because Lisa's not even gonna read this, so it don't even matter. haha OK, BACK ON POINT... During the course of the existence of Transformers, there have been a few... bizarre ones to say the least. [geekosystem]

If you enjoy a good pair of high heels then why not buy yourself a nerded out pair of R2D2 high heels. You'll be the envy of everyone at the party. [geekologie]
None of you can say you haven't imagined how awesome it would be to have a super power, but there are a few super powers that look like they'd be amazing to have, but in real world physics and what-not, they would suck. [cracked]
Now why isn't everyone's grandpa as awesome as this guy? Grandpa plays Call of Duty and Halo, and totally enjoys every minute of it. To be honest, he'd probably kick my but. I've stated many times in the past... I suck at FPSs. I won't even front. [geekologie]
There is now, officially, a director for Star Wars Episode VII. [geekosystem]
Do you have a video game room, but it's missing that one thing that you can't quite place your finger on? Well look no more, I've found it for you. You need this wooden NES controller coffee table, DUH! [geekologie]

Today's Round-Up is a little bit different. I have a few links for you, but I kinda want to promote myself a little bit. I'm considering starting a Minecraft Youtube series, and I've uploaded the first video. So as my test audience, if you have the time, go watch it and throw me some suggestions and comments. Let me know what ya think, and what I can do to make it more entertaining.
If you didn't quite get what you wanted for Christmas, you can trade in those bunny slippers for a Super Mario, Final Level leather belt. [geekologie]
If that's not cool enough for you, how about an $800 Illuminated Batman chess set. Seriously... this thing is awesome. [geekologie]
In a previous round-up I posted about a fan-made Back to the Future LEGO DeLorean set. Well now it turns out that LEGO is making it an OFFICIAL LEGO set. WOOHOO! [gammasquad]
If you had the leg lamp from A Christmas Story on your Christmas list, then you may want an upgrade to a Star Wars droid leg lamp instead. [geekologie]

Dead Space 3 can hear you scream! Seriously. It will also change the gameplay accordingly. [warpzoned]
A cat that jumps whenever it hears the jump sound from Super Mario Bros. Hilarity is inevitable. [geekologie]
For the Doctor Who 50th anniversary, the UK is releasing Doctor Who stamps. For you hardcore fans, you may want to get in touch with your UK friends to send you some. [geekosystem]

Every once in a while a parody video comes along that outshines all other parody videos of its kind. This is one of those videos. Whether you like the song "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye, or not, you have to appreciate the awesomeness of this video, as well as the truth behind the lyrics. If you can, swing by TeddieFilms on Youtube and give them a like and comment on the video.
I want to thank fellow Save Pointer (still not an official follower name) @ArcadeScholar, on Twitter, for showing me this video.

Mmmm, I sure hope those pizza-shaped marshmallows taste as good as they look!
I don't know how I'm suppose to follow-up Lisa's post from yesterday with some crappy Friday Round-Up, but here we go.
In relation to the opening picture. CEREAL IS AWESOME! I LOVE CEREAL! One thing that makes me sad about cereal nowadays is the fact that they never put good prizes in them anymore. What the heck?!? I remember when you could buy a box of cereal, and get a full-sized Ninja Turtle as a prize inside! (that previous statement may be slightly exaggerated for emphasis) /mini-rant Cereal boxes have changed their marketing over the years to appeal to a different generation of kids. Here are 15 examples of how cereal boxes have changed over time. [buzzfeed]
We've become very familiar with how some of the biggest websites look. Usually they're clean and stream-lined and can go 0-60 in under 5 seconds. Unless you're on dial-up, in which case, I pity you. Let us take a quick trip back in time to see how websites such as Google and Youtube looked like when they first launched, shall we? [mashable]
This right here will be the only thing I post, related to Single's Awareness Day. I will spare you all from a Nick Rant about how ridiculous I think this day is. So yeah... here are 35 geeky Valentine's Day cards. [gammasquad]
Apparently the Super Bowl Half Time Show was a secret ode to Skyrim
Looking back to last Sunday and the Super Bowl halftime show. SRSLY?? C'mon... SRSLY? When will the people in charge of finding these performers realize that they are making horrible choices. The only person not lip syncing was Cee Lo. Who actually thought that having Madonna do the HT show was a good idea? UGH! /mini rant. There are only a couple halftime shows that I consider to be awesome. SB XXXVII with No Doubt, and SB XXVII with Michael Jackson. SB XXXV with Aerosmith wasn't too bad either. I got to thinking who would be an amazing person to play the halftime show? Strangely enough I then found this article. BRILLIANT! Why Weird Al should play the Super Bowl. [gammasquad]
Back to the Future. One of the best trilogy's to ever grace the silver screen, but what about the stage? There's a possibility of BTTF becoming a stage musical. [blastr]
With the sponsorship of Red Bull, a man attempts to break the sound barrier without any vehicle, only his body, by jumping from a height of 22 miles. It makes all the sense in the world! Let's do a skydive, in a space suit, from just under the ozone layer so as to not burst into flames, and try to break the sound barrier with my body, because, hey, SCREW YOU TERMINAL VELOCITY! [geekologie]
What happens when two of the best video games from completely different time periods collide? A MASS EXPLOSION OF AWESOME! Skyrim, meet Portal 2. Portal 2, Skyrim. That's right folks, not only did Skyrim officially release their mod tools with a bonus Portal 2 mod, BUT hidden within these releases are hints to either a Portal 2 related quest, or a future Portal 2 related quest. Seriously, my brain can't handle this. [geekosystem]
This kid decided to say "Screw you!" to his DNA encoded fear of falling. Then he decides to do parkour from the edge of the roof of a 20 story building, and the arm of a massive crane. My legs were shaking just watching this guy. You know... that feeling you get in your legs when you get too close to the edge of a high place? Yeah, that feeling. [dailywhat]
Here are 25 animals who think they're people. [buzzfeed]
There are very few shows that can literally make me laugh out loud during nearly every episode. Even fewer that make me laugh so hard I can't breathe. A few examples are Home Improvement, Psych, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, and the newest addition, New Girl. New Girl has made me laugh more in just the last 2 episodes, than I have at any show in a long time. As of 2 weeks ago, New Girl had one of the funniest scenes I've ever seen from any show ever in the history of television. If you disagree, your argument will be marked as invalid on the basis of "your sense of humor is broken, and may God have mercy on your soul." Here is the scene I speak of. I warn you now to put down any food or drink you may be consuming at the moment. [youtube]
My my, Batman, you're looking quite dapper this evening.
