Here's a fun one. An anniversary present for a guy who has a black cat named Mifune, after Mr. Toshiro Mifune of Japanese moviedom. The girlfriend wanted something in the vein of a monster movie poster (what a girlfriend, eh?).
Another note: the recipient of the electric fire is none other than Tendril, from the 80s cartoon show Inhumanoids. Another bit of nerd lore. Now the madness is complete.
