So This Guy Turned His Shower Head Into a Girl…

lady-shower-head-sadness-1

The title says it all. A man who goes by the handle ARuFa was bored and lonely, so he embarked on a small DIY project to transform his shower head into something more…personal, weird, and downright creepy. As you can see, he built a girl right over his shower, for lack of a better word.

With a mask, acrylic paint, some newspapers, and duct tape, ARuFA created the face. He completes the look with a wig, a pair of balloons which are stuffed into a hastily put-together body that’s dressed in flimsy lingerie. Either he was really bored or…really bored.

Hit the break to check out in-the-making pictures of the sort-of human shower head.Continue Reading

Modest Urns for Modest (and Cheap) People

Modest Urns

These Modest Urns by Archie McPhee are a novelty or joke at best. I think. They’re McPhee’s “most modestly priced receptacle” which can hold up to 62.8 cubic inches of ashes or whatever else you want to put into it. I say “ashes” because they’re being marketed as uber-affordable urns for your ashes, your pet’s ashes, or for whoever else’s ashes. For all intents and purposes, it should be able to get the job done.

Each Modest Urn is priced at $9.50. If you want to be even cheaper more modest, then you can get one of these for free (well, almost) by buying a can of coffee and recycling it when all the coffee’s gone. Because yes, as we can all clearly see, the Modest Urn is basically a decorated coffee can.Continue Reading

Fierce Fashion: Jeans Distressed By Tigers, Lions, and Bears

Zoo Jeans

Got a passion for fashion? Well, so do the animals at the Kamine Zoo in Hitachi City, Japan. A volunteer group called the Mineko Club teamed up with the zoo to create the Zoo Jeans which are truly like no other. These distressed pants are ripped and customized by none other than the tigers, lions, and bears of the zoo!

The handlers basically wrapped the animals’ favorite toys–rubber balls and old tires–in denim and gave it back to them. After they’re done gnawing and clawing at their denim-wrapped toys, the denim was then used to make the Zoo Jeans.

Wine or Coffee? Friends Fun Wine Lets You Have Both–At the Same Time

Friends Beverage Group Coffee Wine

 

Can’t decide if you’d like to unwind with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee? Friends Fun Wine is well aware of that fact, which is why they’ve come up with two new flavors that incorporate wine’s velvet smoothness with coffee’s distinct aroma that’ll give you a quick pick-me-up for sure: Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino.

The coolest part about it? There’s zero caffeine and very little alcohol in the mix, plus it’s low on calories. As for the taste, well, that’s an entirely different story, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.

Emojli is a Social Network That Only Uses Emoji

Emojli

What’s the world coming to? Or rather, what’s the online world coming to? Facebook is still in the lead when it comes to social networks, but that’s not stopping new ones like Emojli from cropping up. The name gives a lot away as to how the network will be operating. If you guessed emojis, then you’re spot on, because emojis are the center of the social network. In fact, it’s what Emojli is all about, because it’s apparently an “emoji-only” network.

That should be self-explanatory. All status updates will be comprised of emoji and that’s what its creators are counting on to bolster their claims of zero spam because, well, how else can you spam people using emojis only? (Notably, there’s an emoji for poop so, you know, there’s that.)

What Will They Think Of Next: Pillow Spoon Rest

Pillow Spoon Rest

So this is a pillow spoon rest. There’s not much to say, because the name says it all. It’s basically a miniature pillow made from silicone where you’re supposed to rest your mixing spoon on while you’re busy cooking up a storm in the kitchen. You could use a plate, but then, where’s the fun in that? You could also choose to go without it and rest your sauce-laden spoon against the pan or bowl, but things can get messy pretty quick if you don’t clean off the spoon as much as possible before doing so.

The Pillow Spoon Rest retails for $7.99 and will be available later this September.

Frebble Lets You ‘Hold Hands’ With Loved Ones Who Are Far Away

Frebble

To say that technology has changed how people communicate is an understatement. Where people used to send telegrams and letters, we now send emails, instant messages, or SMS. Where people used to pick up the phone and talk to each other, we now use video chat and video conferencing where we get to see and interact with the people we’re talking to.

Taking things one step further are the folks behind Frebble, which look like modified joysticks that you’re supposed to grab with one hand as you would, well, a joystick. It let’s people “hold hands” even though they’re far away by communicating these sensations to the other party.Continue Reading

Uh, What? Washboard Will Mail You Quarters For Your Laundry

Washboard

 

The Internet is where you find all things absurd, kooky, and cool. Washboard is a little bit of everything, although its name doesn’t give much away. It’s basically a monthly subscription service of sorts where they’ll send you quarters which you’re supposed to use at the laundromat so you can do your laundry. It makes sense, considering most people have to scramble and look for change when they’ve got loads to wash.

The part that doesn’t though, are the rates. Under the $10 per month plan, Washboard will send you ten bucks’ worth of quarters for $15. For $20 in quarters, you’ll need to cough up $27. You don’t really get your money’s worth, that’s for sure. Washboard’s campaign was up and running but they had to pull the plug because their concept violated their payment processor’s terms of service.

So for now, I guess you’ll have to stick to change machines or get your quarters elsewhere.

No Thanks: Giant Isopod iPhone Case

arthropod-iphone-case-1

Is it an isopod? An arthropod? We’re no taxonomists and we really have no idea at the kind of life form we’re looking at. But we do know that it’s one of the strangest iPhone cases we’ve come across, and it’s definitely one you should be getting if you’re into being stared at in public transport. You’ll have to pay $80 for the silver version, and $120 for the gold one. They’re only making 500 of these, so any buyer can feel that they have something really special. As if sticking a giant… animal of some kind wasn’t special enough.

It seems to be Japan only at the moment.
