Denver, Colorado-based photographer, writer, and father Randy Slavey and his wife recently created an amazing Portal-themed bedroom for their son on his thirteenth birthday. The surprised young man’s jaw dropped as he walked into the new room filed with all sorts of Portal-style designs. The entire series of process and finished photos are available to view on the GeekDad blog.
‘Portal,’ and its successor ‘Portal 2,’ took the brilliantly simple concept of a portal gun, combined it with a fantastic storyline that included a sadistic but hilarious antagonist, and created a game that is just as replayable today as it was eight years ago. It was no surprise that my video game obsessed son took to it like a Cheep Cheep to water. Years after that first test chamber, he is still a huge fan and has amassed an impressive collection of t-shirts, toys, and collectibles based on the characters and story. So when it came time to remodel his room for his thirteenth birthday, and he asked for a Portal room, my wife and I wanted to make sure it was something worthy of one of Aperture Laboratories’ finest young test subjects.

Necto Cooler is a sour wheat beer created by the Ardmore, Pennsylvania-based Tired Hands Brewing Company, who is known for creating all sorts of experimental brews, that is inspired by Hi-C’s orange flavored Ecto Cooler drink. The classic Ecto-Cooler box featured The Real Ghostbusters character Slimer, who is the mascot that Tired Hands Brewing Company also chose to promote their beer.
The limited edition craft beer was released and sold out in a matter of days at their Brew Cafe. Necto Cooler’s flavor consisted of a “tart summer bier brewed with wheat. Hopped gently with Simcoe and Citra. Soured in the kettle then conditioned on top of nectarine purée” at 4.5% alcohol.

Pantone Smoothies is a project by Swedish artist Hedvig Astrom Kushner where she blends together delicious looking smoothies and makes their hue match specific Pantone colors. Hedvig’s full series of Pantone Smoothies, photographed by Michael Kushner, are available to view on her project website.
I make a lot of smoothies and noticed it kinda works like mixing paint. Add a strawberry, get a hot pink hue, add some spinach and get a subtle green. Pantone Smoothies is an artsy little project seeking an answer to the question: is it possible to create tasty smoothies in any Pantone color?
The process is pretty simple. I buy colored paper from a local art store, match it to a Pantone swatch, and make the smoothie to match whatever color the swatch is. Me and Mike photograph the fruit lay downs and smoothies using the colored paper as a backdrop, in a light box in the office basement.
