It's Come To This: SelfieBrush iPhone Case & Hair Brush

selfiebrush-1.jpg

Because this is the world we live in, this is the $20 SelfieBrush, an iPhone case with a thin mirror on the front and a brush on the back. It makes the perfect accessory for the vain woman in your life. Or man. Or a hairy cat. My cats used to love being brushed and getting their pictures taken. Unless the flash went off. If the flash went off they got pissed and went into f*** you scratch mode. *shivers* Nothing good ever came out of f*** you scratch mode.

Keep going for a couple more shots including a guide to the perfect selfie in case no matter how hard you try you always wind up looking like shit like everyone on my Facebook feed.

Burger King Japan's Black Bun & Cheese Cheeseburger

black-burger-1.jpg

Not to be outdone by European fast food chain Quick's Darth Vader themed black-bun burger, Burger King Japan has just announced a burger with black buns, black sauce and black CHEESE. Apparently the patty contains black pepper, the buns and cheese are blackened with bamboo charcoal, and the onion and garlic sauce contains squid ink. I'd try it. I just had a cheeseburger last night but it was not black. It was tan and brown and yellow and red and green. It was like eating a rainbow. "Like Skittles?" Absolutely nothing like Skittles, it was a f***ing cheeseburger. Do your parents even know you're on the internet? Also, you know how some kids refuse to eat foods that are a certain color? Well I know some adults that are still that way. They're really hard to stay friends with.

Keep going for several more shots of the black burgers.

Ohio State Marching Band's TV Themed Half Time Show

ohio-state-marching-band-tv-homage.jpg

In case you didn't catch my alma mater Virginia Tech upset Ohio State last weekend, this was the Ohio State Marching Band's television themed halftime show. It's really worth watching. They've got it all: Dragnet, The Simpsons, Addams Family, Batman, M.A.S.H., I Dream Of Genie, The Office, Game of Thrones -- you name it. "The Bachelorette?" No Bachelorette. "Real Housewives of Orange County?" Okay I'm starting to understand how you might have missed the game.

Keep going for the performance of the now #22 ranked Ohio State. Go Hokies!

Interesting: The Batman Vs. Superman Batmobile

new-batmobile-cut.jpg

Note: Higher-res version HERE.

This is a shot posted by director Zack Snyder of the new Batmobile from the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman movie. As you can see, it looks like one of Michael Bay's Transformers. That sucks too because I bet a friend they were going to bring back the style of the Batmobile from the 1960's television show. Granted I'm not sure WHY I thought that would be a smart bet, but you can rest assured alcohol was involved. Plus, you know, all-around poor decision making skills. I bet the same friend the new Ninja Turtle movies was going to be the best one yet.

Check out some more shots of the Batmobile on set over at IWatchStuff.

Thanks to Branden, who already called shotgun and now Robin is throwing a hissy-fit.

Dutch Boy Turns Dead Pet Rat Into Flying Tri-Copter

flying-rat.jpg

With the help of that weirdo that turned his dead cat into a quadrocopter, Dutch youngster Pepeijn Bruins now has a tri-copter created with the stuffed body of his beloved pet rat, Ratjetoe. Me? I would have just buried him...in an ancient Indian burial ground and brought him back to life.

Pepeijn said: "I loved him very much. He always liked to be cuddled and he would run up my clothes and hide."


Keen to keep his pet's memory alive Pepeijn looked at ways of holding onto Ratjetoe.

Luckily, if that's how you want to put it, Dutch inventors Arjen Beltman and Bart Jansen were on hand to help him achieve his goal.

The duo were naturally Pepeijn's first port of call after seeing their previous work, which includes producing the world's first stuffed, radio-controlled flying cat.

The inventors are also working on creating a flying shark copter. You know, because that's something that should exist in this world. Will they use it in a prank to scare beachgoers?! *shaking Magic 8-Ball* Damn, this thing lost all its liquid.

Keep going for a video of the rat taking flight.

Working Together: Artist Turns Her 2-Year Old Daughter's Doodles Into Water Colors

mother-daughter-artists-1.jpg

These are several examples of the collaborative work between 2-year old Eve and her mother Ruth. Eve begins the artistic process with some doodling, then Ruth comes in and adds watercolor. The results, well-- "THEY BELONG IN A MUSEUM." Dammit Indy, not everything belongs in a museum. In this case you're right though. Still, you can't just run around yelling that at everything you see. That's like the boy who cried wolf. And you know what happened to him, don't you? Eaten by a shark.

Keep going for several more examples, a shot of the young virtuoso and a timelapse of the process.

LEGO Releasing A 1,996-Piece Ultimate Collector Edition Of Boba Fett's Ship

lego-boba-fett-ship-1.jpg

LEGO has just announced the latest addition to their Ultimate Collector Series of models -- a 1,996-piece version of Boba Fett's ship, the Slave I. The set will be released later this year for $200 and even comes with a Han Solo in carbonite minifig. FUN FACT: my roommate has a sex toy shaped like Boba Fett's ship. "That was not a FUN fact." Fine, but it was a fact. Actually, I don't even know if it's a sex toy or not, it might just be a regular toy he jams up his keister.

Keep going for several more shots including the minifigs.

German Sets New Beer-Carrying Record w/ 27 Liter Mugs

beer-carrying-record.jpg

This is a video of German waiter Oliver Struempfel carrying 27 one-liter mugs 40-meters to clench the world record for beer carrying. Impressive, but I once rolled a keg into a friend's house SINGLE-HANDED. Well, I used both hands, but I did it all by myself. That was a great party. I remember sitting on the couch when I got sick and puked over the armrest but it was so loud and crowded nobody noticed. A clean getaway!

Keep going for a short video news report about the feat including the reporter claiming the mugs are "filled to the brim." *eyeballing photo* I'm not sure you know what that means. Also, what's up with these Germans refusing to take two trips?
