Bullets and Bees: The good old granny panties are back! Designer Bullets and Bees decided to have fun with this awesome new trend by creating Not Your Grannies Panties, a line of underwear decorated with the faces of well-known celebrities, images, and pop cultural icons – Ryan Gosling, Shia LaBeouf, Bob Ross, the Golden Girls, and so on. What a perfect Chrissy gift – enjoy and Happy Friday! 🙂

Squatty Potty: A magical unicorn squeezes out rainbow ice cream from its bum while an uppity prince explains proper pooping technique in a new commercial for the Squatty Potty, a bathroom stool designed to help promote better colon health. While I suppose this overall is a good thing, there’s so many things about the Squatty Potty ad that are just TMI wrong…we still love it though lol! Happy Friday 🙂
Killien Huynh: In the ‘Postcard for your enemies’ series, Vietnamese illustrator Killien Huynh adds an ironic and humorous touch to her usually sweet and cute illustrations by creating falsely adorable greeting cards for you to send out to all those friends you love to hate. Genius! 🙂
SpinChill: We can’t believe we didn’t think of this – SpinChill is a small device that quickly chills drinks in bottles and cans by spinning them in ice. The SpinChill can chill a can in one minute, a bottle of beer in three, and a bottle of wine in five. Seems its smooth spinning motion helps avoid foaming typically associated with shaking a drink before opening it, and the device can chill up to 300 drinks before requiring new batteries. Love. Want. Need. Perfect for the beach esky this summer…party on! 🙂
Hank the Beer Tank: We absolutely LOVE ‘Hank the Beer Tank’ which is a very clever, fully portable kegerator that can easily travel around for parties, camping, anything, and can operate off of 110-240V AC, or 12-24V DC. Founders Sebastian Ehreiser and Adam Koeppel are currently raising funds via Kickstarter in order to bring ‘Hank the Beer Tank’ to market and say this about the product “You can plug me into just about anything. And while I am plugged in I use less power than a 60W light bulb. To serve beer. From a keg. Anywhere. I do this by using a super efficient inverter controlled compressor, power electronics, and a digital control unit. I am smart about sipping power, and I wont drain your battery, I will just turn off. Warm beer is always better than a car that won’t start. I carry CO2 with me to keep kegs pressurized and preserved. I can accommodate a sixtel keg of your favorite craft beer. I can cool it to 0F, but who wants a frozen keg? I am also half the size of most kegerators on the market, so I can fit in a small space in your home, truck, boat, or tent. Just don’t leave me outside, I don’t like the rain.” This. is. GOLD! Happy Friday! 🙂
Barracuda: We are obsessed with the Barracuda which is a uniquely designed carry-on bag that is equipped with connectivity features as well as a clever collapsible structure. The Barracuda includes a USB charger, GPS capability (for locating the bag), plus an integrated laptop tray and while looking like a typical hardshell roller bag, it collapses flat for storage in just a few seconds. The San Francisco-based brand is currently raising funds via a Kickstarter campaign with the bag expected to ship in November 2015. Amazing idea!
Pop Chart Lab: LOVE! This awesome print imagines the business cards of famed comic alter-egos, from Clark Kent to Tony Stark to ‘The Bruces’ both Banner and Wayne – as well as a slew of notable CEOs notably Green Arrow and Green Goblin, mallet-wielding psychiatrists like Harley Quinn, and patriotic military personnel including Captain America and War Machine. The credentials of over 30 secret identities are featured here – all beautifully designed and hand-illustrated – to form a brave, bold, and business-casual rolodex that makes for an uncanny addition to your wall. Each print is signed and numbered by the artists from a first printing of 500, and comes packaged in a Pop Chart Lab Test Tube. Finishing options include print with hanging rails, print mounted on a panel or simple framing available in white, black, oak or walnut. Also note that framed prints require an additional 3-4 business days of processing time from the date of order. Using 100 lb. archival stock certified by The Forest Stewardship Council, this fantastic poster is pressed on an offset lithographic press with vegetable-based inks in Long Island City, Queens. Not to mention for $29, its an absolute bargain! This is a ‘Want, Love, Need’ with some ‘Gimme, Gimme, Gimme’ thrown in for good measure.
If you enjoy others feeling sorry for you with every little cut or graze, then Boo-Boos are probably for you. Boo-Boos are just like the band-aids you already use only hyper-realistic – allowing you to transform the smallest cut into a gunshot wound, chemical burn, or skin ulcer. An offbeat project currently being funded on Kickstarter, Boo-Boos make your cuts & scrapes look so much worse than they really are. While the injuries depicted on these bandages are somewhat sickening and repulsive, they are also just a bit of fun. So go ahead and slap them on and watch people gasp and gag at your laceration, burn, or infection. So gross!
So what’s the story? $hërwøõd Förlêé, inventor of the Anti-Theft Lunch Bags, came up with the idea for Boo-Boos after witnessing an accident that involved a bit too much blood for his liking. A visit to the ER revealed that the injury was thankfully (but disappointingly given the look of it) not very serious. A couple of stitches later and all was good again. $hërwøõd maintains, however, that at the time, the injury was life-threatening, and I’m sure that many of you can relate to this sentiment after receiving nicks of your own. Now, with Boo-Boos, you can finally convince people of the gravity of your wound while keeping the truth under wraps. A variety of injuries are depicted on the bandages including:
The bandages, despite how they look, are sterile, latex-free, and individually wrapped so you can guarantee your boo-boos won’t turn into Boo-Boos. All bandages measure 3″ × 0.75″ (76mm × 19mm). Boo-Boos aren’t for everyone, especially those with weak stomachs, but you have to admit, they’re definitely more interesting than any of the other Band-Aids on the market. If you don’t mind a bit of attention, enjoy having a bit of a laugh, or you wish to convey pain in a conceivable visual manner, then Boo-Boos are definitely for you!
