Walk and Talk the Vote – West Wing Reunion

I need to post this so I can close the window in my browser. Bridget Mary McCormack who is the sister of Mary McCormack who plays Kate Harper on the West Wing, is running for supreme court in Michigan, so she got the cast of the West Wing to make an add for her. It’s pretty good.

This Video Makes Me Want An Apple 5!

I really hope this isn’t a scripted parody… Sam Roberts interviews some one in the queue for an iPhone 5.

This video is also by Sam, interviewing an occupy Wall Street, protester.

You Monster!

This short clip by @notquitenormal asks the question What if a portal 2 had been filmed as a cartoon? This video is quite creepy, but also quite cool. It it way too short I want more.

The animator’s real name is Chelsea according to her twitter, her website appears to be down, but she has a tumblr and deviant art page.

Coin Slot Belt

This is pretty cool, but at $90 on etsy you are probably better off buying an arcade coin slot ans making one yourself… It’s also been sold but the NES Console Belt Buckle ($140) on the same shop hasn’t been.

NES Console Belt Buckle - OMG, can I touch your power button :)

Scale Mail For Potential Steel Punks

Slave bracelet, Tribal, elven chainmaille handflower, scalemail.  Larp, SCA, medieval, dungeons and dragons, bellydance, costume, sexy, bdsm

Never say that I abandon a cause right after starting on it… Eternalelfcreations over on Etsy might be the people to spark Steel Punk, or possibly Scale Punk or Elf Punk I can’t decide (It’s not even a real subculture and yet it now has sub cultures!) The hand covery thing above kind of fits what I was talking about a couple of days ago and it’s only $65 Canadian (I have no idea what that is in real money… Oh wait Etsy tells me it’s £42.66) If you want to cover more than your hands you could buy this scale mail bra  (It’s actually reserved for somone but I’m sure in exchange for money they’d make another) or the scale mail bikini below it? They seem to come in loads of colours.

Reserved, scale bra, belt, bikini top, chainmaille bra, chainmaille belt.

small chainmaille bikini, fantasy armor, scale, scalemail, bra, shirt, bellydance, tribal, Elven, ranger, fairy, warrior, dragon, costume

You could pretend it was dragon scale or something…

If that’s not your thing then how about this cool looking but functionally useless chain mail vest by daughtersofbastards?

Chainmaille breast plate/halter

It’s $500 Canadian which is apparently about £328. Knock yourselves out.

The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Words cannot describe my love for shawarma, if you aren’t familiar with shawarma it’s chicken or lamb or more recently beef cooked on a huge rotating skewer rolled up in flat bread with some vegetables sauce (Garlic sauce or tahina depending on the meat) and occasionally french fries (Although I think the french fries are not part of the traditional recipe) and it is what I grew up eating. It’s a staple food in the middle east, it costs about 50p (I reackon 75 cents?) and it absolutely delicious.

I’ve had shawarma in London, Glasgow and even Tokyo I think if you told me I could only eat one food for the rest of my life I’d pick shawarma. But enough about that. I’ve noticed the internet has picked up on shawarma because of a passing reference to it in the Avengers.

This can only be a good thing as it will hopefully lead to shawarma being more mainstream, which means that I will have access to it wherever I go!

Steampunk Optimus Prime T-Shirt

 

These two T-Shirts featuring a Steam Punk Optimus Prime and a Steam Punk Soundwave are pretty cool, I especially love Optimus’ top hat and the fact that it looks like Soundwave transforms into a music box. They are both available from We Love Fine for $25 each… Maybe next month…

Lumpy Space Princess Sleep Tank

This sleep tank from We Love Fine features my favorite Adventure Time character Lumpy Space Princess. You can also get a Jake one and a Finn one (See below). I didn’t even know what a sleep tank was before I saw this… They also do a while bunch of Adventure Time underwear and over wear for that matter…

 

What’s That You Say? You Asked For A Duck And All You Got Was A Lousy Dog?

The quack “Invisible Muzzle” that’s right invisible will keep your dog from barking at and biting people no problem… It sells for 1600 yen and will make your dog look completely retarded…
