LOVE HURTS: First Aid Kit for a Broken Heart

Created by Melanie Chernock in her own words:

Love Hurts was created based on an assignment to make an activity book. I thought it would be more interesting to make a sort of activity kit instead. From there, I came up with the concept of Love Hurts: A first aid kit for a broken heart. Initially, I knew that I did not want to make a kit of sadness and wanted to approach the product with a sense of humor. Love Hurts contains all of the essentials for going through a rough breakup such as dark chocolate, vodka, bubble bath soap, a candle with matches, candy hearts, a mix CD, and if all else fails, tissues. All of the products come neatly packaged in a compact kit. Unfortunately, the kit is not yet available to purchase. If anyone is interested in producing it, please get in touch!

This is a good idea and I’m sure some soulless gift card company will undoubtedly stumble onto it and make a shed load of money off the idea.

I’m not going to include all the close ups because you can see them on Melanie’s page but the track list of the CD is here:

If I ever needed this, and I hope I never do, I’d like a version with milk chocolate; because dark chocolate makes me gag.

CAMERA COLLECTION BY TAIYO ONORATO & NICO KREBS
Swiss duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs are known for their contemporary, cutting edge style in photography, sculpture and installation art. Camera Collection is their ingenious, handcrafted collection of cameras refashioned with far-out, unexpected objects.

I’m going to be honest one of the reasons I’m posting this amazing collection of eclectic cameras created by Swis duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs is so that I can use the coin the word “Armadillo-cam”.

These are really cool, I love the camera made out of a stack of books (above).

Thanks to @WantanItalics for pointing this out to me.

A not so happy comic by Gabrielle Bell about the three empty words that far too many people will feel obliged to say to someone today because of a third century Roman guy died on this day a long long time ago…

Pac Man Mini Cooper

Artist Matt W. Moore has designed this awesome Mini Cooper with a Pac Man theme, I’m going to admit that I’ve always been sceptical of the  appeal of the new Minis but this… This I would drive.

He’s also done a space invaders themed paint job which is not where near as cool…

Via Like Cool

I’ve found a render? of this on YouTube which appears to be available on Forza 4… I’m not entirely sure though as I don’t have a copy of Forza 4 handy and it really looks like the photo shoot above… But the description says:

This design is 1 of my Favorite I’ve made. I love Mini Coopers with a passion. Just 1 day I might be able to get a Mini cooper to paint this design on it.

If you want the Design in the Storefront. There are two ways to get it.

Mario Meets Limbo… Noirio?

I can’t find the original source of this image apart from this Reddit post which is unfortunate, however it reminded me of the below image which I have had in my queue waiting to be blogged for months.

I have this image down in my notes as being by iGreefing and that matches the water mark but it’s not longer in their gallery…

I’d love to put together a Mario game in the style of Limbo I think it would be super creepy.

While I’m on the subject of B&W Mario games, there is also this image which is also in my to-blog queue:

It’s by Deviant Art user CodFather.

Trailer For Karateka Remake

I remember relishing going to my cousin’s house to play Karateka, I didn’t have it on my Mac, but he had it on his DOS PC. It was amazing, a game that had people that moved realistically! This was before Prince of Persia blew my mind yet again.

I love the theme of this trailer for the remake, I love that it uses the original graphics running on an Apple II, I’m not too overstruck with the visuals in the new game though, I’m sure that the game will be quite cool, but I don’t think it’s going to live up the the nostalgia of the original.

Good trailer though.

The Rule

The Rule

I don’t pretend to be as choosy about my film watching choice, I’ll watch almost anything.

<RANT>

Except “Brides Maids” Annabel and I started watching that movie a couple of weeks ago and we had to stop watching it after half an hour because it was so bad. The horrible thing is that in a way Brides Maids fits this rule, the women discuss each other, dresses, food, farting, getting along.

Sure there is talk of men in the film but it’s in the back ground. And yet it’s still an absolutely awful movie. The characters are:

  • The bride to be, whose defining feature is that she is getting married.
  • The main character who is unlucky in life and love and everything. Also she’s jealous that her bestest friend in the whole wide world has other friends.
  • The annoying one who’s only just married.
  • The annoying one who’s married with kids.
  • The one who is a female version of Zach Galifianakis’ character from the Hangover.
The movie had no redeeming features what so ever, which is a shame because it was hyped up to me as being better than The Hangover a movie I didn’t think I’d like but ended up really enjoying.

The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Image: Shawarma near damascus from gomideast.com

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…
