If you’ve fallen in love with Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, then this lamp is certain to set your heart aglow! Inspired by the most dreadfully romantic moments between Jack Skellington and Sally, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Moonlight Lamp boasts a Bradford Exchange special design that brings the magical power of a moonlit rendezvous to any room in your home. Licensed from Disney, this lamp is really two exciting works of art in one; the fully sculpted, hand-painted base is superbly handcrafted in artist’s resin and stars Jack Skellington and Sally (followed by Zero, of course!), topped by a uniquely fringed lamp shade with even more romantic artwork. And every fabulously frightening detail is bathed in romantic blue “moonlight” emanating from the FREE blue standard light bulb that comes with your lamp!
Not a single feature has been overlooked. Standing at 20 inches tall, each sculpted element is flawlessly recreated from Tim Burton’s brilliant designs, from the cobblestone walkway and grinning jack o’ lanterns to the rock wall and spooky tree. Jack and Sally are poised for a special dance, every nuance of their timeless expressions perfectly captured. The shade is crafted of real black cloth and showcases romantic artwork from the film’s finale of Jack and Sally atop Spiral Hill, the entire scene set aglow by the blue light bulb within. A silvery replica of the sculpted cat figurehead from the Mayor’s car makes the perfect finial. Atop any table, as a bedside lamp, or proudly displayed on a mantel, any fan of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas is sure to be thrilled by the impact this lamp will make. But, it is available in a limited edition of 295 crafting days, and strong demand is expected, so don’t wait. Order now!

If you’ve ever looked something up on Wikipedia and wanted more information than its editors would allow, the good news is that there are dedicated wikis for practically everything these days. These wikis often lack the speed and crowd-edited finesse of Wikipedia, but they make up for it where it counts: Superfluous entries on inconsequential nonsense!
For proof, look no further than the horror genre. Every major franchise has its own wiki. Even franchises than only ten people care about have them. If you’re the type of horror-loving trivia-gobbler who likes to keep reading until unconsciousness happens organically, these wikis are a positively blessed find.
I’ve collected nine of my favorites below — but please note that this barely scratches the surface!
All of these wikis are hosted on Wikia, a site that lets anyone build an online encyclopedia for free. The trade-off is that the pages are covered in resource-draining ads. Before you start browsing, I’d suggest creating an account on Wikia. Logging in seems to limit the ads somewhat, and you’ll only need one login for all of the wikis featured below!
The next time you’re wide awake on a stormy night with an emptied DVR and no one to talk to, give one of these a try.

I think I’ve done these before, but we’re approaching the official start of Summer (even though I think it’s been Summer for about 3 weeks now) and I think these are appropriate.

Many a Pac-Man (or Ms. Pac-Man) arcade cabinet have lighted our way when we were stuck in dark places. Dark places like arcades. Or 80s pizza parlors. Or the dark place of being a hormonal teenager and thinking nobody understands what you’re going through.
Allow this Pac-Man Ghost Lamp to light your way today. Shaped like the iconic Pac-Man ghost, this 8″ tall lamp has two different modes. The “On” mode makes the light glide through 16 (count ’em!) different colors, so you no longer have to decide between Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Clyde – you can have them all and more! The “Party” mode makes the color change sound-activated, and there’s a sensitivity dial so you can tune it to the level of your audio experience. The lamp is powered via micro-USB so you can put it on your desk and let your laptop provide power or plug it into the wall with the included adapter. Basically, we can see no reason you wouldn’t want to wakka wakka wakkaway with this cool product. (We’re sorry.)
