    In other culinary-ish product news, how about a Starship Enterprise pizza cutter? It's not delivery, it's DiGiorno! No it's not either, it's store brand and there isn't nearly enough cheese to cover the sauce. Unrelated, the last time I tried making my own pizza it cost $30 a... / Continue →

    I love books. I've read like six of them. One of them twice. My bookworm-y tendencies aside, this is a gerbil wheel bookshelf designed by artist David Garcia (I love your brother's band!). Unfortunately the wheel isn't on a stationary axle, so you'll probably walk yourself ... / Continue →

    The Samsonite OBAG is a rolling suitcase in which the two compartments remain level with the ground while the unit is pulled along. Because, let's face it, dizzy clothes are unhappy clothes. It can also easily be dragged up stairs or thrown down an elevator shaft. Unfortunat... / Continue →
