    This is the $7,000 replica of Han Solo frozen in carbonite being sold by Sideshow Collectibles. The only thing I've ever collected from a sideshow? A handful of the bearded lady's beard. Frozen Han will be available for preorder starting April 10th, and they even offer payme... / Continue →

    This is a series of Game of Thrones LEGO minifigs. Except they're called 'Dragon Sword Fighter Force', because nobody likes getting sued. Laid? Yes -- people love that. Especially when their partner does all the work so they can just lay back and relax. That's primo. $55 ... / Continue →

    Remember Rick Hamel's 'Mythical Beast' R/C fire-breathing jet-powered dragon plane (links to original article with pics and videos)? Well now you can buy one from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer for $60,000. Or you could spend that money on two new cars, because SPOILER: that... / Continue →

    This is the $185,000 Onyx Sofa from Peugeot. It measures 3-meters (~10-feet) long, 800-pounds, and is made from a chunk of volcanic rock and carbon fiber. It does not look like the sort of sofa I'd want to throw myself down on. Or make love on. Make love TO? Maybe. Regar... / Continue →

    Remember when the Wu-Tang double CD (Wu-Tang Forever) came out in '97 and in 'Bells of War' RZA told me I didn't even need to go to summer school, that the Wu-Tang double CD would be all the education I needed that year? Well he was SPOT ON. And now the group has announced th... / Continue →

    This is a pool built by Agor Engineering that has a wooden floor that can be raised and lowered hydraulically (previously: these concrete ones). You can adjust the height too, so if you just want to sit in tit-deep water and sip cocktails, you can do that. Or you can make it... / Continue →

    This is the $225 Flask Bracelet designed by Cynthia Rowley. It holds 3 ounces of booze. That's about two shots. Which is about four shots too few to go see a movie. Hell, I can't even watch an Adult Swim cartoon with so little. Plan B: beer helmet filled with tequila. You... / Continue →

    This is the Lover's Deep, a luxury submarine that rich people can rent to have sex in under the sea. It costs $145,000/night per person though and there's a two-night minimum, so unless you're planning on bringing a love doll for the least romantic getaway of all time, the min... / Continue →

    These are shots of the Goleta, California home of a man who dropped $35,000 renovating the house to better suit his 18 cats. I mean, cool, but if I'm dropping $35,000 on home renovations for cats you better believe it's to build them their own apartment in the back yard. Cust... / Continue →

    This is the £3,250,000 (~$5.35-million) Victorian mansion for sale in London. It has 7,000 square feet, 11 bedrooms, a ton of shitters, and a spaceship playhouse in the attic. Obviously, the kids that grew up there were spoiled rotten. Although those mission control computer... / Continue →

    This is the Big Lebowski rug made by Etsy seller OldTymeNotions. I would have a hard time putting my feet on that. My lips, no problem. You want it, I want it, it costs $800 so neither one of us is going to get it. You like how I haven't made a 'tying the room together' ref... / Continue →

    These are shots of Deadmau5's Ferrari 458 Italia wrapped in a Nyan Cat theme (complete with EPICLULZ! license plate). Apparently he plans on driving it in the Gumball 3000 rally this year if his single-seater BAC Mono isn't built in time. Wow, must be nice having a Ferrari ba... / Continue →

    This is one of the $13,000 bar stools made by Hanger 54 from the Martin Baker Mk10 ejector seat from a decommissioned RAF Panavia Tornado. I would drink in that. I would drink in that AND perform constant barrel rolls (technically just 360's). I love playing fighter pilots a... / Continue →

    This is a $278,000 Hello Kitty pearl necklace. It was made with Mikimoto pearls to celebrate Hello Kitty's 40th anniversary next year. Can you believe she's turning 40? She doesn't look a day over six. Could you imagine wearing a quarter of a million dollars in pearls aroun... / Continue →

    This is the Flying Carpet Coffee Table from Duffy London (of this swingset dining table fame). It costs £1,495 (~$2,460, spit-takes blood) and has a base that looks like the carpet's shadow to give it that hovering appearance. Just to be clear though, it doesn't actually hov... / Continue →

    This is the stained glass octopus chandelier lovingly crafted by Mason Parker. Mason is selling the piece for $18,000. For reference, that's $18,000 more than my decorative lighting budget will allow. The lamp measure four-feet across at its widest and the tentacles are remo... / Continue →
