    This is a Disney collectible Darth Vader helmet that's been covered in python skin by the folks at ELEMNT. They only made this one though and it's the only one they're going to make so if you want it you better rush over there and have a credit card with at least $3,000 availa... / Continue →

    This is the Alien Facehugger ski mask and Chestburster sweater available for preorder from Mondo. The ski mask costs $30 and the sweater $85. Unfortunately, there is no money-saving combo pack available. That's a shame. Obviously, I'm going to wear the facehugger mask to w... / Continue →

    First there were basketball shoe cowboy boots (aka Tenniboots, aka rodeo clown boots), now, cowboy boot sandals. Each pair is custom made by the folks at Redneck Boot Sandals. You just send them a pair of boots, and they mod them into sandals for $75. Simple as that. The fo... / Continue →

    These are the Star Wars kites available from ThinkGeek. They come in Death Star, Millennium Falcon, X-Wing and R2-D2 varieties, and cost $40 apiece. Here's a fun lifehack: the next time you're at the beach, fly a kite, then tie the string to your beach chair. That way your f... / Continue →

    Just in time for spring and summer, this is the $80 John Snow Fur Hoodie available from ThinkGeek. It kinda sorta looks like the outfit Jon Snow wears in Game Of Thrones. It also just kinda looks like a North Face jacket. I want a hoodie that looks like it's made out of drag... / Continue →

    A month after legally recognizing The Church Of The Flying Spaghetti Monster's head as a marriage celebrant, a couple has tied the noodle knot in the first official Pastafarian wedding. On a pirate ship in New Zealand. What an exciting time we live in. Although they never co... / Continue →

    Because the world is going to end soon anyways, this is a video created by Balázs Bánk of the Flappy Bird game he ported to play on an eVic-VTC Mini vaporizer mod. How about that! "But why?" I dunno, presumably just because he could, because I see absolutely no other reason ... / Continue →

    This is Fred and Friends' $20 Atomic Trimmer, a nose and ear hair trimmer that looks like a raygun. It doesn't function like a raygun though, it functions like a traditional nose and ear hair trimmer. That's a shame, because I bet if you melted your nose hairs out they wouldn... / Continue →

    This is a super short video of skateboarder and new mother Maria Oberloher performing a kickflip while pushing her child in a stroller. Some people will probably complain about it. Probably that she's already wearing a wrist brace and it's dangerous and what happens if she do... / Continue →

    Because beer is best when shared with your bear friends in the woods, this is the ManCan portable keg system (starting at $195). You just pour your beers in, seal it up, and the thing keeps your beers fresh and carbonated (using a tiny CO2 canister) until you're ready to guzzl... / Continue →

    This is the BB-8 tire cover spotted by Redditor dubsallday on a road in California. Pretty clever. There's a video of BB-8 in action after the jump which doesn't play right in Firefox but does in Chrome and I don't know about Safari because I didn't test that. I'm going to m... / Continue →

    This is the $15 Aurora Borealis heat changing coffee mug available from ThinkGeek. The Northern Lights appear when the mug is hot, and disappear when the mug is cold and you're out of coffee. To the break room! You know it's a shame that with climate change and all soon ther... / Continue →

    These are a small series of handbags that look like books. They come in Spell Book, Fairy Tales, and Holy Bible versions and cost $180 - $200 so you can carry around the ghost of the $200 you used to have before you bought a handbag that looks like a spell book. All the bags ... / Continue →

    This is the tentacle crib carved out of walnut by Atlanta based woodworker Garrick Andrus for some friends, who commissioned the piece. Thankfully, from inside the crib it doesn't look as creepy as from outside the crib. The end carvings on the crib are kinda creepy. When I ... / Continue →

    These are the beautiful pressed flower phone cases made by Etsy shop HouseOfBlings. They cost $17-$20 depending on the make of your phone. Some are just decoratively arranged pressed flowers, but I really like the ones that were made to look like little trees. I like little ... / Continue →
