Space Invaders

Yes, the classic arcade game. Yes, the graffiti/installation art in New York. Yes, it's elsewhere in the world. Yes, I get excited every time I find one. Here's the website: SPACE INVADERS!

No invaders in Boston yet. Too bad.

Who Needs Looney Tunes Now?

This guy is gonna put Wile E. Coyote out of business. Anvils? Gunpowder? Men going "whooooaa...that's pretty cool, man." Hijinks. Yeah, I watched it. I'm a lady and I might watch it again.

Vitamin D

Aside from watching speedy students on Glee dance their pants off on "Vitamin D", what else about vitamin D? Well, there's this really interesting snippet from Neatorama about how people in Northern Latitudes don't get enough sunlight to make their D quota. They needed to get more of it from food sources. Which is why people in Northern latitudes evolved the ability to drink milk at some point. Voila, more vitamin D available = fewer rickets? Always a good time. But those lactose intolerant people of the world did not inherit that milk-drinking-in-adulthood gene. It's innerestin'.

Hey, you know what I want right now? Some Rick Rolls. HAH. From Neatorama.

A Plushie Mood

Blame Neatorama, they had such adorable stuff up. I particularly enjoyed the Haminal and the Stache Labbit by Frank Kozik. Seriously, how can I go on living without a Stache Labbit on my pillow next to me?

So then I had to go looking around for more plushies. Website myplasticheart has some delightful things, as well kidrobot. Here's some strangely adorable plushie pork products on the former.

Okay, now I'm thinking about Domo Kun, that loveable mascot of Japanese tv. Watch the best of Domo Kun on youtube, and then try - just try - not to buy a Domo Kun plushie. Yes, I'm reposting this. Seriously. Today I'll have to be happy with watching Domo, since I just spent actual money on an ebay Haminal. Dammit. I just love that it comes in a little can.
