Geekery: Atari games branded pencils

The above picture was posted on the Erasable Podcast Community Page on Facebook and it shows what might be my doom… I have, well had, no interest in pencils that exist only to be a publicity, sporting some fancy colors and slogans and totally loosing at being a proper pencil, but these got me thinking. I’m a 77’s guy, so I have that urge of reliving part of a time I only lived through half consciously being a kid. These pencils do exactly that and they do that in a wonderful way as the Atari VCS 2600 was my first (well mine and my sisters…) gaming console.

Kickstarter: Twist Bullet Pencil

Here’s another fun pencil related Kickstarter. The guys at Metal Shop and Huckelberry Woodchuck, the later famous for his vintage bullet pencils on Etsy, have started a tasty Kickstarter: A bullet pencil that is closed and opened with a twist, even the pencil stubs are fastened by twisting them into place. I’m already happy with the stainless steel and black color, but the stretch goals promise some more colors like the shiny blue (my favorite color) you see in the picture. Go ahead and take a look you might like what you see: http://kck.st/1vveAOa
