Relevant To Your Interests: All Aliens, All the Time

A while back, I wrote about robots for your everyday wear and use. This month, though, I’ve gotten much deeper into The X-Files AND I’ve started watching Futurama. Because that’s how I enjoy pop culture — with at least a three-year delay and a lot of deep love. Needless to say, aliens have been on my mind as of late. And probably they’re on your mind too, since that’s how this kind of stuff seems to work. So without further adieu, here’s a few alien-type goods for ya.



Space Traffic Tank Top, $27. Aliens Gave My Cat a Beard Tee, $20. Mulder, It’s Me Tank Top, $16. Alien Tights, $10. Alien Unicorn Pin, $9.

Home Goods


Alien Abduction Bookends, $25. Space baby mobile this is killing me oh god babies lookit this, $70. Alien wall decals aaaggghhhh lookit more kids stuff I can’t even so cute aagggghhhh, $30. Hop In Dork Mug, $16.


Because what Relevant To Your Interests would be complete without my obsession with tabletop games showing?


Alien Frontiers, $60, a resource management game, but with aliens. Among the Stars, $37, a card drafting game, but with aliens. Escape From the Aliens in Outer Space: Ultimate Edition, $29, a lying game, but with aliens. And finally, the game that lets you pretend to be an alien, Star Wars Force and Destiny, the most recent iteration of Star Wars tabletop RPG. Get the core rulebook for $44, the Game Master’s Kit for $16.50. If you’re totally new to tabletop RPG, maybe get the beginner game to ease on in (that’s $25.29).
