Cassette Playa K_A_R_M_A_G_E_D_D_O_N Fall/Winter Collection Video

So I’m not sure if I am a fan of this collection so far, but this is a very cool and creative way to show your collection!

“Always bright and colorful, influenced by urban culture and inflected with a little bit of ’80s flair, the collection includes brand mainstays such as graphic-printed tees and heavily-patterned outerwear. Increasing their range of products, however, Cassette Playa has also transferred their trademark all-over screen prints to a variety of products as evidenced by the visual exploration.” – Hypebeast

Fat Tony By Ron English

How could you lose when you wrap Art, Toys, and a Bold Statement all into one package?….You can’t! 😉

This very cool art figure was delivered to me yesterday by the good folks at 3Dretro.com and cost $50 plus shipping. This original colorway is limited to 500 pieces. (Might be sold-out on site)

“Fat Tony” was created by Ron English and needless to say is an awesome piece. This is a very creative product trough and through, even the box was very well done. I love This “Fat Tony” art piece to death and it makes a great addition to my Vinyl Toy collection.

Check out what Kidrobot had to say about “Fat Tony’ and see some detailed pics below.

“Fatten up your vinyl collection with Ron English’s 100% nutrient free art toy, Fat Tony. This 9-inch tall satirical statue is a delicious shortcut to attention deficit disorder

“Sugary cereals captured the hearts of Young America by giving away cheap toys made in China in every box. This prize at the bottom of the box actually ate the cereal.” – Ron English

Word has this fat cat will be making its way to a toy store near you with this original colorway limited to 500 pieces, followed by more various color combos in editions of 100. A ton of tiger with a short shelf life.”

10 Last Minute Valentine’s Day Ideas!

Just trying to help out my friends and spreading the word. 😉

(Taken from http://www.women24.com)

Ideas for him:

1.    Picnic in the park. This is quick and easy and your lady will love it. Find a spot, grab a few of her favourite snacks, something to add to the mood and you’re sorted.

2.    Love coupons. You’re low on cash, but still want to show your appreciation for your partner. So, why not print out your very own ‘love coupon’ which, essentially, gives her a free pass to things such as breakfast in bed, a foot massage, or even something sexy? Use your imagination!

3.    You’ve spotted the perfect gift for your lady, but it’s mid-month and your bank balance says no. Open a store account, instead, and pay it off at a later date. It will be worth the smile on her face.

4.    Forgotten to make that special booking for dinner? Don’t fret. Bring it home, instead. Make it extra special by imitating the setting and preparation of her favourite dish.  She’ll love the personal touch and because you’re in your own, private space, you won’t have to wait too long for your ‘dessert’.

5.    Give your princess a palace. This may sound like it could break the bank, but get this: it’s actually pocket-friendly! Greet her at the door with a chilled glass of champagne and lead her to a candlelit bubble bath.  Spend the rest of the night treating her like royalty.

Ideas for her:

1.    Good lovin’.  Every once in a while your man wants to be pampered too. So, for Valentine’s Day, run him a bath, give him a massage, followed by a, um, happy ending. This is quick, easy and cheap!

2.    Movie mania.  Pull off a sexy scene from one of his ultimate flicks.

3.    Dust off the sex toys. It’s a win-win. You get the pleasure out of touching and playing with yourself, and he, well,  basks in seeing your glory.

4.    Prepare a home cooked meal and hire his favourite movie, coupled with a gift such as a magazine subscription, or if you have some extra cash to spare buy a voucher for an adventurous activity that the two of you can do together at a later stage. Both are easy to get at the last minute online.

5.    Give him what he wants, not what you want. So scrap the memory boxes, love poems and all things Hallmark. Meet him at the door in the sexiest lingerie you own with his rugby socks on, holding a beer and a sandwich.

Samsung Transparent Smart Window

This has got to be the coolest thing, I have every seen! It is like the future is right outside of our window…(lame joke, Pun intended lol)

The Smart Window is self-explanatory and mind-blowing, and these babies will be out on the streets before the year is out – literal oversized transparent one-way mirrored touchscreen technology is making its way into our homes. The Smart window provides views of both the physical and virtual world, a view which can be manipulated using its blinds app. More than a cool factor, these digital blinds control the amount of actual light that comes in through your Smart Window, eliminating the need for backlight units during the day. This means it consumes only about 10% of the electricity that a standard LCD display its size would. Albeit wanting on the portability scale, this latest surprise from Samsung looks fixed to win… it is after all a simple premise – why buy a hulky desktop when you can surf on your window?” -Hypebeast

Check out this kind of creepy but kind of cool, 12in. action figure of the man himself, the late great “Steve Jobs”.

Until then, fans of the late Apple chief can enjoy these promotional images of the eerily realistic figurine whilst they await its official release. According to Mashable, Chinese toy company In Icons plans to begin selling the dolls in February for $99.” – Huffington Post
