Evil Teddy Bear USB Drive

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Here’s an invention we all can use…at least to scare children. A USB drive with a teddy bear head that gets its head ripped off and shoved into your drive. It’s precious and scary, all at once. My kind of toy.



Video Games and Rock Aren’t Evil

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

If your grandma has ever got on your case about being Satanic because you’re playing video games or listening to some real rock music, now’s your chance to worship god while playing a knock off video game that imitates songs that want to be rock…except they replace “baby” for “Jesus.”

Yeah, Guitar Praise really is that lame.

Bear Retrieves Hubcap

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

I know you’ve been lacking some absolutely precious animal stories in your life lately, so here’s a great one. This black bear that resides in a safari park in the UK has been stealing people’s hubcaps for years. Then a woman enters the park missing all four of her hubcaps and the bear steals one from the car in front of her and drops it at her car window and knocks to let her know it’s there. What a sweetheart. A bear that shares and shows it cares. Lub. -Thanks Neatorama

Looking to scare your children with adorable play toys? Then you need the Avenging Narwhal play set.

The narwhal uses its tusk to impale the cute animals of the world, specifically baby seals, baby penguins and koalas. This 5-1/2″ long, hard vinyl narwhal comes with four magic tusks (crystal, onyx, ruby and ice) to impale the three 1-1/2″ long, soft vinyl cuties. Don’t let cute overrun the world, fight back with your own Avenging Narwhal!

Thanks to Neatorama for discovering this lovely toy.



Comic Con Updates

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Our laptop has been in the shop, so we should start getting more Comic-Con updates in the next few days, but for the time being, perhaps you would like to see a round up of some of the other sites that covered the convention.

Wired has a great collection of tattoos at Comic-con.

The Official Star Wars blog owes it to its readers to have the best Star Wars costumes at the convention.

Joystiq has a variety of costumes, some of which I posted, others I didn’t even see.

CinemaBlend also has some I posted and some I didn’t notice. It’s insane to try to get every costume there -possibly impossible.

Yahoo has a very nice costume gallery. Be sure to see the whole thing.

And lastly, I Am Bored has 13 great pics.
