Behold the glorious spectacle of Charles Phoenix and his Astro Easter Tree of Peeps, ”a styrofoam tree covered in tin foil and populated with colorful marshmallow Peeps. It’s the Easter version of his Astro Weenie Christmas Tree.”

It’s Awesome Easter Preparation Day on Geyser of Awesome!
Christmas + Science = Aweome
These awesome little Christmas trees are made of colourful fungi grown in petri dishes by scientists at the J. Craig Venter Institute in Rockville, Maryland:
“In a relatively unknown place, on the 3rd floor of JCVI in Rockville, MD, is a small fungal room where art meets science (and of course where all our fungal research takes place). Fungus often gets such a bad reputation for being gross and somewhat ‘standard’. We fungal folks know better and I am hoping to educate others with the underlying beauty that fungi possess, in a funky way. I recognize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I felt this might convince some that fungus can be fun and not just something that grows in the back of your fridge or a nuisance that contaminates your plates. Please enjoy these funky fungal holiday art forms.”
This is a seriously awesome nativity scene. We’ve never seen a geekier crèche.
“Who needs religious icons when you can have Angel Batman, Shepards Bill and Ted, Three Wise Vaders, Ryker and Deanna Joseph and Mary and uh, T-Rex. I think he’s subbing in for a barn animal.
Peace on Earth, and goodwill toward fictional men.”
“When the Archie McPhee holiday catalog arrived a couple weeks ago, I knew we had finally found what we were looking for — a rubber chicken wearing a santa suit. At last! We put up our tree, and after a few surgical incisions, the chicken was ready to go up, too. My husband and I looked at each other. Tears were welling up…”

Faced with the realisation that we suddenly had room enough to put up our own Christmas tree, I was initially at a loss when considering how to decorate it. We have no ornaments and the idea of shopping for them made me drowsy. I can’t remember what first brought to mind the image of a tree covered in tentacles (perhaps it’s best not to ask), but as soon as I envisioned it I couldn’t let go of the idea.
Using an artificial tree, blue string lights, silver garland, one plush Cthulhu (who has been silently biding his time in my home for years), approximately 50 Cthulhu Tentacles, and a little heady chanting (no one wants to upset the Great Old Ones), “A very Lovecraft Christmas” became a reality. I’m rather pleased with the results. Let’s hope the Old Ones are too. I’m beginning to suspect that the tree writhes when I’m not looking.
