    This is some freaky-deaky Star Wars porn by an artist named Miravi. This is the tamest picture I could find, so you can imagine what some of the other stuff is like. Think fully nude hardcore shit that'll burn your corneas out (I can type by touch). So, yeah. There are two ... / Continue →

    Kyle Doyle, a 21-year old asshat from Australia, went out one night and got himself good and drunk. And then, like a little pussy, didn't want to go to work the next day. So what did he do? He called his employer and told them he was out due to a "valid medical reason". But... / Continue →

    This is an older video but I'd never seen it, so I assume there are some of you out there that haven't either. It's Star Wars made in a grocery store with produce and other edibles, with a "buy organic and free range products" undertone. Well, not so much an undertone. More ... / Continue →

    This is not what I thought a product called the Haute Diggity Dog iBone would be. It's just a plush dog toy ($12) that resembles an iPhone with dog-related applications. It might not even have a squeaker! Oh wait, yes it does. Hold on, incoming email. From: The Superficial... / Continue →

    This is a Death Star made out of a cantaloupe. It's probably a lot healthier for you than the cake version. And less tasty. Far less tasty. But if you had two, well, then I'd have to stick my face in between them. Fan Made: An Edible and Healthy Death Star [cinematical] T... / Continue →

    If you're anything like me, you taught yourself to read off the back of a cereal box you had to use as a pillow (or, alternatively, newspaper sheets). Rough times. But look at me now -- shit, still rough times. Anyway, this is some cute Star Wars alphabet art. As you can se... / Continue →

    This steampunk cell phone looks pretty freaking sweet. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Made out of wood, brass, and ass, the faux phone looks like it came right out of the 19th century and requires a unique punch-card to dial a number (if it actually worked). The unit would ... / Continue →

    Haha, so I haven't left New Orleans. And you know what? I might not. One of the awesomest parts of being king of the interweb is being able to work from any seedy, gin-soaked, smoke-filled bar with Wi-Fi that you want. So I'm at a coffee shop. And I want this freaking hove... / Continue →
