She Ra Nouveau + Bonus 7 Deadly Sins of 80s Cartoons Nouveau!

She-Ra Princess of Power Pinup

When I wrote a post about the other princesses noveau it occurred to me that I hadn’t seen a She-Ra (Princess of Power) Nouveau image so I Googled and found the above, by Eamon but I also found a gallery of 7 Deadly sins of 80’s cartoon Nouveau… That is what this site is about!

7 Deadly Sins, 80’s Cartoons, and art nouveau, anyway here we go, the gallery is all images by bandeau:

Blokz Birthday Candles With Bonus Tetris Cake

Not Lego, no sir Blokz candles… Sigh… I don’t know why but if you’d told me just the name I would have assumed they were Tetris birthday candles… Which apparently don’t exist… You can however have Tetris Cake which is almost as good if not better because you eat it which is the second best thing to do to something after burning it.

World Globe Liquor Dispenser + Bonus Globe Bars

I was quite impressed when I saw this Globe shaped Liquor Dispenstor especially as it’s only $40, then I had a look at the other stuff they sell on this website, it’s a world of drinking paraphernalia, if only I drank…

Keeping witht he theme though they also have some magnificent replica Globe shaped bars and drink trolleys, I thought these kind of things only existed in movies:

 

 

 

 

Ark of the Covenant Groom’s Cake + Bonus BSG


I’m going to have to start paying attention to “When Geeks Wed” which is where I found this awesome Ark of the Covenant wedding cake, and… A REPLICA BATTLESTAR GALACTICA CAKE!!!!

Coraline Button Cookies

It wouldn’t take much to convince me that these chocolate covered peanut butter cookies were awesome, I’m a huge fan of peanut butter cookies and who doesn’t like chocolate. The fact that they are made in the shape of button in tribute to Neil Gaiman’s novel Coraline is just a bonus.

Social Network Privacy + Bonus Rant…

I’ve noticed a few stories cropping up over the past week of employers requiring candidates to give them access to their social networking as well as coaches demanding that athletes friend them so that they can monitor them.

While I think this kind of behaviour is deplorable, and to be honest if an employer asked me to sign in to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn or whatever in the middle of an interview I’d walk out as that is not that kind of organization I want to work for, I’m not sure why people don’t see the simple way round this:

Just have two Facebook accounts!

 

One that is private and has all your pictures of the sordid acts you perform on barn yard animals with custard at the weekend and another account that shows you as an upstanding citizen.

It’s not rocket science…

Sure curating the account might be a bit of hassle, but it should be easy enough to friend a few people and just leave the account to fester, then when they ask you why you update so infrequently just tell them you don’t really use social media. Unless you are going in for a job at a marketing firm as a “Social Media Guru” this shouldn’t affect your chances one bit.

By the by: If you do describe yourself a “Social Media Guru” though seek help, chances are you aren’t. You are a toss pot. This is a completely different rant, but following hundreds of people who are “Social Media Gurus” and posting nothing but articles about increasing your follower count, or maximising your follower potential, or anything that has nothing to do with anything but social media does not make you a guru, it makes you a retard. Having 90,000 followers on Twitter all of whom describe themselves as “Social Media Gurus” just means you have your head firmly shoved up your ass and are participating in the worlds most social and pointless circle jerk.

I’m not going to pretend that I know everything there is to know about social media, in fact I acknowledge that I don’t know much about it, but it’s painfully obvious that having 10 followers who actually care about the content that you are posting and retweet it is more valuable than living in an echo chamber that is a hundred million “Social Media Gurus” waxing lyrical about stuff no one cares about.

Anyway like I said this is a rant for another day…
