Corkcicle is a product I stumbled upon from a co-worker that has a ridiculous addition to coffee, and an even crazier need for it to be steaming hot as if their local coffee shop just brewed it. So when the company sent over not one, but TWO of their products for me to review, I was excited. One of the products that they sent to me was their Corckcicle Tumbler. This product is one that will literally keep your beverages hot or cold for long periods of time. So if you’re on the go in the morning and you…
We routinely get the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog at our house, because apparently someone mistook us for people looking to waste money. I was thumbing through it the other day, and I realized there are really only two categories of shoppers for Hammacher Schlemmer: recent lottery winners, and people reading the Hammacher Schlemmer section of “Skymall” while drunk on a plane.
Do you think you know your Internet history? This infographic just landed in my inbox. See if there is anything on here that Vivint missed.
Apparently I’m being sued. So are my lawyers. And several of my college friends, roommates, acquaintances, and even complete strangers. Why are we all being sued, you ask? A Nebraska woman who claims she is personally representing God and Jesus has asked the court to rule on whether or not homosexuality is a sin, so all homosexuals are apparently defendants.
Over at Buzzfeed there is a post highlighting the videos of Mario Wienerroither, who posts ‘musicless’ videos by stripping the original music and remixing them with either actual or imagined sounds and effects of what might have been going on during the filming video. The results are awkward and embarrassing … but always intriguing!
Have you ever thought about the music that was popular when you were born? No? Neither had I – and even those ‘when you were born’ things we bought for our kids just talked in general about popular music. But now Playback.fm lets you enter your birthdate and see what the top song was when you were born!
The recent #TheDress sensation has created a common thread (and a viral one) among worldwide citizens by posing an intriguing question – How can so many people view the same object in different ways? Color theorists everywhere debate is it black and blue?…or gold and white? …or brown and blue?!? First, the subject of this whole phenomenon is based on a photo, not a video, so there are immediate questions of lighting, overexposure, the device it’s being viewed on, etc. It was originally posted by 21-year-old singer Caitlin McNeill from the tiny Scottish island of Colonsay with the comment “guys please…
Although it’s a little late for Valentine’s Day, Sand Sign wants to write a love note on the beach for you! Their Kickstarter campaign has 22 days left and they are looking to break the record for the Most Love Declarations Written on the Beach. In return for your Kickstarter pledge, Sand Sign will write and photograph your love note.
Where is the line between a wonderful shared love and creepy stalking or codependence? I’m not sure, but I’m pretty sure this new product is on the WRONG side of that line! It is called the Entacup, for “entangled” cups, and the cups are paired over Bluetooth and know when the other one is filled. Um … yeah.
If there were a pill that, when digested, would instantly turn obnoxious body emissions into sweet-smelling chocolate – you’d probably want to take it wouldn’t you? Or at least feed it to the family dog or maybe slip it into a relative’s mashed potatoes during Thanksgiving dinner.
I love keeping track of videos I enjoy, so I can share them with others. This is nothing new, but every now and then you see a commercial and you realize that while it has a direct message and meaning, it also has implications outside of that and perhaps across many areas. Similac’s Mother ‘Hood is that kind of video.
Everyone of elementary school age knows smoking is bad for you, so the shock-tactic anti-smoking ads often only serve to scare little kids. More effective is thinking of what you might miss, and what you could be doing instead with better health and more money. That is the goal of Nobituary, which creates a celebratory look at your non-smoking future.
Already this year I’ve lost several friends, mentors, and coworkers from my past. Each one had a different online obituary site, and most had some Facebook presence, but the ability to fully communicate felt limited. A new IndieGoGo project called RIPCemetary seeks to allow loved ones to “create a space to honor a person and keep the memories alive forever.”
Earlier this week Judie shared an article from LifeHacker that talked about 10 skills they wished were taught in schools. The thought is even though there are many great things we learn in elementary and high school, there are also many skills that are lacking. Let’s look at their list and our own interpretations, and maybe add a few!
One of the fun things in first-person shooter games is all of the weapons you can play around with … but it also gets pretty silly in terms of what you are able to carry by the end of the game. Pistols, machine guns, shotguns, grenade launchers, missiles, etc! Now Mythbusters is going to try to carry it all!
Every year Steam and GoG.com and GamersGate and other services offer huge discounts on games during their holiday sales, and gamers on web forums lament their ever-growing backlog and the impossibility of ever finishing the games they just bought, let alone the rest. Now SteamLeft will quantify your backlog so you know just how dismal things really are!
Has it REALLY been more than 4 years since I posted this video showing how Ke$sha’s Tik Tok, Katy Perry’s California Gurls, and Miley Cyrus’ Permanent December were all basically the same song? Well, now Sir Mashalot has taken on country music, with a mashup of 6 popular songs including artists such as Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan.
This weekend in football, we have conference championships that will decide who goes to the Super Bowl. These are all popular teams – New England, Indianapolis, Seattle and Green Bay – so you can be sure there’ll be plenty of gatherings either at bars or in people’s homes. If you’re planning a party – the Homegating app has you covered!
Several years ago I bought my wife a telescoping arm with camera screw mount at the end, which allowed us to capture pictures of both of us on trips. This was before digital cameras, before smartphones, and the term ”selfie’ came along, making taking these pictures easier. But missing until now was the ability to capture pictures of your butt.
I love the comic The Oatmeal, and highlighted a speech given by Oatmeal cartoonist Matthew Inman at BAHfest on my personal blog. I was contacted about a new dark humor book called Russian Optimism, which they describe as having innocent titles and horrible endings. The book is an illustrated coffee table book with illustrations and translations.
So it has been nearly 17 years since my last baby was born, but I remember just nearly 19 years ago before our first son was born going through many discussions with family and friends about what we ‘must have‘. Now that discussion has moved online, and there is a recent survey with results from BuzzFeed!
