It’s a BRAND NEW YEAR EVERYBODY! WELCOME BACK!
Here at Sci-Fi Bloggers, we run a lot of individual pieces on the site, each of them revolving around and focusing on a specific topic. Sometimes, however, we like to crank it up a notch and take a look at a whole lot at once. With that said, we invite you to follow us as we take a look at what’s happening…AROUND THE NET!
Science Fiction Pencil
The giving hasn’t stopped just because Christmas is over! The new year has begun and people are yearning to give just as much as they were when Santa came. And folks, during this beautiful month of January, the Blackwing 1138 pencil might be the gift for you.
Blackwing is a company that makes pencils, notebooks and tools with unique designs and their latest product is the Blackwing 1138. George Melies’ A Trip to the Moon was condensed into a movie barcode and put onto the barrel of the pencil, essentially putting the entire movie itself onto the pencil.
The Blackwing 1138 is in limited supply. Learn more about them here!
