WonderCon: Bay Area Ghostbusters

Have you ever felt there might be something strange in your Bay Area neighborhood? Who would you call? The Bay Area Ghostbusters of course!

Rather than trapping ghosts, the Bay Area Ghostbusters help raise money for various local charities such as children hospital appearances, Relay For Life, and the Bay Area Food Bank.

It turns out that the Bay Area Ghostbusters are one of the younger pieces of a much larger pie that includes chapters located all over the world.

As far as their gear goes, it’s all crafted, not bought.

Humble Bundle for Android

Pay what you want and help charity.  That’s the name of the game for the latest Humble Bundle that just released.  What’s new this time is that instead of only PC/Mac/Linux related games, this time it is for the Android and PC/Mac/Linux.  You choose how much you want to pay and how much you want to allocate between developer, charity and the organizers.  If you beat the average, you also receive a bonus game (or more) all DRM free.  As a note, previous Humble Bundles in the past have added bonus games after the fact, and for those who previously beat the average will also receive the bonus games retroactively.

The following games are being offered right now: Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Osmos, and EDGE. If you pay more than the average price, you also get the indie classic World of Goo!

This is for a limited amount of time and once again this all goes to a good cause!

For more information visit Humblebundle.com

Update: Looks like Toki Tori has also been added, bonus game is still World of Goo

2011 Nike Mag – Auctioned off to Benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research

Starting today, September 8, 2011, Nike is auctioning off the 2011 Nike Mag. All proceeds will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. For 10 days, 150 pairs of the 2011 Nike Mag will be auctioned on their eBay website.

View the commercial below that features Michael J. Fox:

The Nike Mag is basically the same “future” shoe as seen in Back to the Future 2 movie. Granted it doesn’t have the cool auto-lacing shoe laces, it does feature an illuminating Nike logo on the front. Regardless, all proceeds are going to Parkinson’s disease research.

You can start bidding on their eBay auction here.

Here is another commercial, this time featuring Christopher Lloyd reprising his role as Doc Brown:
