I’m back from the holiday break so posting will resume.  We’re also switching hosting and migrating all the posts, so things may look a little wonky for the next few days.



I Hope You All Survived The Holidays

It’s over, and we all [hopefully] survived.  I hope your holidays were memorable and delicious.  Now dust off those holiday shoes and start preparing for New Years (it’s only five days from today!)



Brass Knuckles Addition Creates One Super Functional Brolly

Brass knuckles on your umbrella? How utterly convenient.

How could you have lasted this long without them in your coat pocket? Despite its multi function purposes (and really only 50% potentially violent, though that depends if you’re Britney Spears), the Umbuster has been labeled a Class 5 Weapon in Australia (probably more locations as well); this means you must have a license to brandish it.

At €225 you will have to dig deep in those pockets to be dry and a potential Matrix bad-ass, but hey, nothing comes for free these days.

Suddenly It Isn’t Hip To Be Hip

What happened here? With the publication of the Adbusters article on hipsters personifying the decline of Western civilization (which in itself is funny since I can think of a load of things worse) there has been a landslide of clone articles by like minding nay sayers regarding the world of the hipster.

I’m up to defend the concept of the hipster, I’m simply reminding you that every subculture is just as irritating and irreverent (yes, that includes the hip hop kids, granolas, goths, punks etc) as hipsters. They’re excessive consumers, but what young crowd isn’t these days?

Using corporate success (such as American Apparel’s) isn’t a valid basis for criticism of one group only, while ignoring others that have committed identical “offenses”.

Let’s quit the hipster hate on.

Let them wear their skinny jeans, 80s kicks and lamé, and ignore it if you hate it so much. I’m certainly not a fan of every crowd’s clothing or lifestyle purchases, but I’m not spouting off about it…let’s move on!

If you’re doing your shopping online, the order dates for holiday gift packages to arrive on time has arrived! If there is anything left to order, do it now…or get it in store (though Christmas shopping in person really sucks at crunch time).

Would You Like To Smell Like A Whopper?

WouldYou Like To Smell Like A Whopper?
I didn’t think so, yet Burger King has come out with its own brand of eau de burger; aptly named “Flame”. A 5mL spray bottle of the scent of flame broiled meat will set you back $4.

I hope most people would still take a pass on actually smelling fat, but I’m sure we’ve all seen stranger things sell.

P.S. I refuse to link to this monstrosity.
