• Snakes On The Stage: DBZ Venom Snake Skin Guitar

    Snakes On The Stage: DBZ Venom Snake Skin Guitar

    We love snakes.  Even though that Snakes on a Plane movie sucked reptilian eggs, I still managed to watch it three times, cursing along with Samuel Jackson on each one.  Popular guitar maker DBZ Guitars sure knows how to tug at my heart.  Yep, its a snake on a six-string – the DBZ Venom Snake Skin, a pointy axe with a scaly-looking body that’s guaranteed to get PETA boycotting your next gig. But, alas, the snake skin is fake. Which [...]

  • Whip Up An Exotic Meal With Destination Dinners

    Whip Up An Exotic Meal With Destination Dinners

     Trying to impress a date with your cooking wizardry, but the extent of your kitchen genius ends at scrambled eggs and bacon? I sympathize. I lied about being an understudy on “The Iron Chef” once or twice too just to get girls over. Don’t worry, though. Destination Dinners could save you from embarrassment yet. A food delivery company, they let you order packages that contain most of the things you’ll need to prepare grub that takes your date’s palates [...]

  • XBox 360 RROD Coffin Gives Your Red-Ringed Console A Dignified Death

    XBox 360 RROD Coffin Gives Your Red-Ringed Console A Dignified Death

    Between me and my cousins, we’ve had three past-warranty Xbox 360s RROD on us. We couldn’t find the heart to dispose of the unfortunate bastards and now we know why. We were waiting for this: the Xbox 360 RROD Coffin. I love the Xbox. Frankly, though, Microsoft deserves to be tortured by Jack Bauer an entire 24 hours for the crap design that made RROD a regular part of the gaming lexicon. With official warranty providers pegging failure rate at [...]

  • The Oncoming Onslaught Of Questionably-Themed iPad Accessories

    The Oncoming Onslaught Of Questionably-Themed iPad Accessories

    We all knew that the iPad’s upcoming debut this month will bring forth a slew of novelty accessories based around feminine pads.  Here’s the funniest one  I’ve seen so far: the iMaxi, an iPad Cover designed to look like a giant sanitary napkin. Sure, we can see this one coming a mile away.  The Hip Handmaids creation doesn’t hold back, though, and that’s just grand.  It even comes complete with protective wings for flaps and bundles into a neat fold [...]

  • Play Welcome To The Jungle In Style With The Slash Appetite For Destruction

    Play Welcome To The Jungle In Style With The Slash Appetite For Destruction

     While I’m not sure that Slash remains relevant in today’s music scene, there’s no question he stands as an easily-recognizable figure among a mass of guitar-toting heroes from the glory days of poodle hair and spandex. There’s something about that image of the guy with a funny-looking top hat, leather jeans, curly hair covering his face and a classic ’58 Les Paul that managed to entrench itself among the mass consciousness. In honor of the man, Gibson has announced [...]

  • Bakon Vodka Flavors Your Drink With Some Tasty Pig

    Bakon Vodka Flavors Your Drink With Some Tasty Pig

     Flavored vodka has never been my thing, but I’ve always said I’ll make an exception for one that tastes like roasted pig. The Bakon Vodka isn’t exactly luau fare, but I’m tempted to grab a bite. I mean a swig. Need an excuse to drink in the morning? Uhh, I guess this will do. Dispensing of all that fruity-flavored mixes we usually find for the popular distilled liquor, this one’s laced with the meaty, savory and cholesterol-imbalancing taste of [...]

  • Power Gig Does Rhythm Gaming With Real Guitars

    Power Gig Does Rhythm Gaming With Real Guitars

    Not a fan of the way Guitar Hero and Rock Band have dumbed down playing music to the level of button mashing? Then you may find Power Gig: Rise of the SixString refreshing, as it delivers a real six-string experience to the music gaming genre. Announced at the start of the Game Developers Conference earlier today, the novel approach comes courtesy of Seven45 Studio, who develop and publish the game, as well as manufacture their own controller for it. Like [...]

  • Drink Like A Warrior With These Warhammer Beer Steins

    Drink Like A Warrior With These Warhammer Beer Steins

    Whether you love the PvP action of WAR or absolutely hate the grind the game puts you through, you’re bound to have an affinity for ice cold beer.  Yep, that delicious-tasting lager is the one element of civilization that, pretty much, unites us all.  And these officially-licensed Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning Beer Steins is the most fantastical way to drink it. Bud from a plastic cup might taste the same as Bud drank from a fancy beer vessel, but [...]

  • Assemble Your Own Miniature Dinosaur Museum With Tinysaurs

    Assemble Your Own Miniature Dinosaur Museum With Tinysaurs

    Building a real dinosaur museum will require serious skills and money, neither of which you probably have in spades.  These Tinysaurs, on the other hand, can let you fill an entire desktop with recreation dinosaur skeletons at only a fraction of the effort and the cost.  Of course, your co-workers aren’t likely to pay a dollar to see 10 paper dinosaur bones inside your office cubicle, but it’s an awesome feeling, nonetheless. Created by artist Kelly Farrell who sells them [...]

    Smash Guitar Puts Some Sense In Your Rock And Roll Decadence

    Want to destroy stuff when you’re onstage, but can’t bear the thought of even scratching your $800 Les Paul?  As liberating as breaking guitars probably feel, it’s a terrible idea on so many levels.  Surely, there must be a better way to relieve all that pent-up aggression, right? Now there is.  A Japanese company called K’s Japan has come up with the Smash, an electric guitar made especially with the intent of being destroyed.  Cheap and recyclable, it makes the [...]

  • Chip Shotz Golfer Puts A Golf Game In Your Office Cubicle

    Chip Shotz Golfer Puts A Golf Game In Your Office Cubicle

    If this were the 80s, the Chip Shotz Golfer is how we’d play golf indoors, not with Tiger Woods on the Xbox 360.  Since it’s 2010, this is how we’d play golf inside the office, where video games aren’t allowed. Yes, it’s a tabletop golf course that looks stupid enough to be entertaining.  A perfect fare for cubicle-dwellers who want to kill some time while the supervisor isn’t looking, you can play one hole or 100 holes – just rearrange [...]

    Want your kids to grow up filthy rich?  Get them started early with the Kaufladen, a mobile kiosk stand marketed to German kids.  That way, they can steal stuff from your fridge and sell it back to you for a profit.   Clever. Anywhere you go in the world, it’s always the business owners raking all the money.  Forget having your children play cops and robbers – nobody makes real coin from that deal.  If they’re going to roleplay, they might [...]

  • GMax, The Toilet Bowl Transformer

    GMax, The Toilet Bowl Transformer

    Some Transformer robots got lucky.  They can morph into trucks, cars, planes and other sorts of cool stuff.   Looking at the GMax, you can’t help but feel that the poor little bastard got a raw deal – he turns into a toilet.  Yikes. While other robots busy themselves dishing out lasers and missiles, this unfortunate robot takes crap.  Literally.  In fairness, he’s not really a part of the official Transformers.  The poor sap is actually a promotional toy figure from [...]

  • Launching Of Crayola Rockets In The Desert Doesn’t Create A Rainbow – Boooo

    Launching Of Crayola Rockets In The Desert Doesn’t Create A Rainbow – Boooo

    As it turns out, firing crayons into the air at the same time doesn’t create a rainbow.  My first-grade teacher so totally lied.  But it does make for one delicious looking spectacle, as evidenced by the photos of John Coker’s Crayola Rocket Pack, which he recently launched in the Nevada desert. Launching rockets isn’t anything special.  Every engineering geek worth the eye mucus in his glasses has probably fired one.  When you take the time to make your rockets look [...]

    Flexdex Photon Light Board Confirms It – Everything Looks Cooler With LEDs

    If you were a kid in the 80s, the Flexdex Photon Light Board is probably how you’d imagined skateboards to look like in 2010 – riddled with plenty of electronic lights.  Except they’re supposed to be hovering in the air, instead of just rolling on small wheels like they always did. Where’s the jet motor, the vertical take off and all that?  Well, that will have to stay in your imagined future for now.  Instead, you’ll have to console yourself [...]

    Got no date on Valentine’s?  Might be a good time to watch some dirty television.  No, we are not talking about Pay Per View channel on your cable.  Instead, we’re referring to the Discovery Channel special on dinosaur mating, called Tyrannosaurus Sex.  Hot! Tyrannosaurus Sex doesn’t just answer the questions, it shows dinosaur sex in all its glory. That’s a direct quote from the press release, which sounds like one half enticement and one half threat.   Shot after shot of [...]
