    This is another literal music video from the same guy that brought us A-Ha's Take On Me. Except now it's Tears For Fears and Head Over Heels. Jesus, music videos were freaking weird in the 80's. Thankfully we've gotten over that. Or have we? I don't know, I don't watch MTV... / Continue →

    Well Crown 7 is at it again, this time with a new smokeless cigarette, the Hydro ($80). What's so hydro about it eludes me, but it has something to do with water vapor. Anyway, like their other models, the device delivers nicotine but no smoke or carcinogens and is sadly not ... / Continue →

    The iStik is a $27 iPod case that has neodymium magnets on its two parts so you can stick it to your bikini or running shorts (one magnetic piece goes on the inside, case goes on the outside). Pretty clever. And also, based purely on the above imagery, I just bought a dozen -... / Continue →

    What's up with all my heroes being New Orleans Saints fans? First Master Chief, and now Optimus Prime. You'd think at least one of them would root for the Redskins or Steelers. But noooo, they're all New Orleans fans. Maybe it's Mardi Gras. Granted, loving boobs is a hero p... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is a real radiator called the Brick, designed by architect Marco Baxadonne and manufactured by Scirocco. No word on price, but I think we can all agree that money is no object when it comes to a LEGO radiator. Unless it's more than $60, in which case, f*** it, ... / Continue →

    Apparently the Obama party actually did pay for in-game advertising in Burnout Paradise for the Xbox 360. But now, skilled Photoshopper Paul Tassi has gone and made eight more (FAKE) in-game Obama advertisements. That's GTA there, but hit the jump for some Portal, WoW, Gran T... / Continue →

    Video, due to language, is probably NSFW. This video is older than the interweb itself. In fact, it was first depicted on a cave wall, drawn there by a caveman who smeared his penis in the ashes left from a fire started when lightning hit a dry tree. True story. Anyway, for... / Continue →

    My Zombie Pinup ($20) is a 2009 calendar that features scantily clad, brain-eating zombie ladies. I want one. It'd look great hanging in the garage next to my toolbox. Because I'm a man, damnit. A man that loves undead women. And power tools. But seriously, should I get a... / Continue →

    Another day, another flying car. Although the good people over at Terrafugia aren't actually calling it a flying car. They're calling it a "roadable aircraft" because they're a bunch of asshats. Anyway, it's a flying freaking car. The vehicle, set to go on sale next year, ... / Continue →

    Gamer Prepared runs 36 accounts of World of Warcraft at the same damn time. Why? Because he can, and it's his God-given Canadian right (I don't actually know where he's from). A lot have asked me, why create so many? The main reason is to invade Stormwind and Ironforge whe... / Continue →

    I love slow motion videos. Especially ones in which people are getting punched. And here comes another! It's a music video for Spanish rock-soul singer Bunbury for the song Hay Muy Poca Gente. And not only is there punching, but there's shit being broken over people's heads... / Continue →
