DESIGNER GAS

I like these ALOT!  I like what I hope they are trying to say.  This is my take – if we are going to be a society who is going to be at war, voluntarily, why not look good while we do it.  In a time where everyone is soooo worried about what they look like and ‘who’ they are wearing comes three designers who got together and are going to take this to a whole new level.  Designer Gas Masks – this way, nobody has to be out of fashion in the middle of the desert.  Take a look at these – they are quite erie and yet quite familiar…isn’t that sick in itself?  That a gas mask is a perfectly recognizable object – further – that the LV logo on the gas mask also makes sense?  As always, I am a fan of Louis Vuitton, but the Gucci isn’t bad either.  Maybe my thoughts on war would change if it looked this good….sigh…

BOOBIES TYPED IS NEVER OLD…

Remember this blast from the past?  This thing fuckin rocked!  A friend over at shape + colour reminded me of this one day, and then I found one online that said boobies – and then it met my blog.  I had the yellow one, my sister had the red one and I believe they were sold in the great garage sale of ’88 – like so many other treasures, the thing was probably sold for 50 cents or 10 rubles depending on the fluctuation of the Chinese Yen.  I miss that mechanical man that would sound out whatever you spelled – remember the one who sounded like he had throat cancer and had to put a microphone up to his throat to speak?  No?  Well, your parents didn’t love you…

SOME SERIOUS SNAIL TRAIL…

There is a very good reason we do not live in shells, WE ARE HUMAN!  Yet again, a human with too much money has wanted to see what it feels like to live like a snail – that old chestnut.  Therefore, they have built their house (with the help of Senosiain Arquitectos) so that their house resembles a snails shell.  It is pretty impractical – you have to go further and further spiralling into the house in order to get to some of the rooms – I would hate this, unless it was an open concept snail shell, I would burn it down and collect the insurance.  And to be honest, I don’t really even like the look of it unless I had dropped too much acid and was going into a drug induced seizure and wanted to watch the sun rise in this shell-hell.  Willy Wonka’s idea of a house, no doubt.  The idea on paper – cool.  In actuality – children are starving, build them a mud hut that they can live in – and for the price of this snail trail – you probably could have built enough huts to reside the entire population of Uganda.  My favourite part of this blog is spewing forth names of countries I have done absolutely no research on – for all I know – they may live in high rise condos in Uganda, but I get National Gepgraphic – they don’t, plus I just checked google – they definitely don’t.  I think Senosiain Arquitectos should begin building wealthy individuals houses that resemble the shanty’s of Uganda – there is something different for ya.  To help, I have included pictures of the snail house and a Uganda Hut.

 

NEW KIDS BACK ON THE BLOCK

I am speechless – my worst dreams have come true – back when it was only a rumour and gossip that these misfits may get back together and tour the world in their ill fitting sweatshirts and oh so tragic rat-tails comes the news that it is official.  Get out your pink tee shirts and NKOTB dolls and sleeping bags – dates have yet to be announced, but it is official, they are back.  Exscuse me while I go puke in my own mouth and contemplate the existence of this futile world that will allow this to happen.  Maybe we will get lucky and they will tour libraries or school gymnasiums….honestly….fuck….

CLASSROOM HY-JINX AVEC THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESS…

Haha – I laughed out loud when I saw this or (lol) because I remember being that immature student at James R Henderson school as the first kid got his calculator (I think it was the same Chinese friend because they always have technology long before us white folks – thats just a truth of society).  Remember how you figured out pretty damn quickly all the bad words you could spell on it and pass it around the class and the teacher couldn’t do ANYTHING and then you would show it to the Jehovah’s Witness kid in the class when she got in from standing in the hallway because her faith forced her to be isolated and lonely while the rest of us celebrated the national anthem the the fairy tale of the Lord’s Prayer.  She did not think it was funny – nor would I if I was a Witness of Jehovah and had to sit and whip myself while the rest of the kids exchanged Valentine’s and mutilated cheap drug store Easter Candy.  Poor Tanya.   Pure and utter brilliance…PLEASE get the nearest calculator and do it – at least for Tanya’s sake….

APPLE UP – WAL MART DOWN…

This makes me extremely excited.  Apple (Mac) is one of the coolest companies out there making a whole whack load of shit we do not need, but always finding a way to market it to us to make us think that we need it – or constantly need to update it.  It has just been announced on CNN.com that according to the latest polls, Apple has officially topped Wal-Mart as the largest and most used music distributor.  A lot can be said about this – first off – who the fuck was buying their music at Wal Mart in the first place to make it #1 in the world?  Last I remember of Wal-Mart music was Alanis Morisette on the family vacation, where you had to have a jack hammer to get the GD CD out of the plastic tomb in which they encapsulate it in the hopes that not only will you not steal it, but the artist will have another album out by the time you open the fucking thing.  Fuck those Americans LOVE their Wal-Mart.  I guess it also has to do with the fact that in the USA, Wal-Mart is more like Wal-Mall with stores that have over 20 000 sq feet of discount white trash shopping from kitty’s on a printed tee to a TUB of sour gummy ant eater like animals coated in sour sugar and then dipped in chocolate and caramel, placed in a package of meringue.  Don’t get me wrong – there is a time and place for Wal-Mart, and then there is a time and place to spend a bit of money and get something of quality whose main ingredient is not polyester or jersey.  Obese = jersey, what can you say – America being the most obese society, it makes sense that Wal-Mart is what it is.  Ok – swinging it back to music now.  Apple has to be credited for saving parts of the music industry.  There will always be arguments that Apple has a strong hold on the buying and selling of music, but before itunes came around, Limewire, Napster and BearShare were getting most of the profit and ripping the artists off in the process.  I would gladly buy a tune for .99 cents or an entire album for $12.99 especially if I do not have to get off my ass to go and get it.  Send it to me for cheap IMMEDIATELY?  Who can argue with that?  Needless to say it says something about where this is all heading – its all electronic folks – they are saying that HMV and Music World are next on the shopping block, BUT, unless Apple can find a way to send me unseen episodes of the Golden Girls with Bea Arthur sans shoulder pads for $1.99, HMV may be just fine.  God I love TV on DVD…God I love Bea Arthur…
