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.

Tetris Sofa

Stefano Grasselli at Coroflot refers to this as a “Couch” I object to that word so I’m going to call it a “Sofa”. It’s a shame it’s not more Tetrissy, it’s almost like the Tetrisness of the Sofa was added as an after thought. It’s probably more comfortable for that though.

Wicked Witch of The East Ruby Slippers Door Stop

It is the Wicked Witch of the East that Dorothy steals the Slippers from at the start of the Wizard of OZ isn’t it? The West With is the one who spends the rest of the book trying to avenge her sister’s death and claim back her family heirlooms.

You can buy this Door Stop on Amazon USA although there are multiple listings one for one and one for a set of two… It doesn’t appear to be available on the UK website which is a shame because it’s quite cool…

NES Controller Rug and Cushion

NES  Nintendo Controller Rug

This rug (above) and the cushion (below) are from Etsy seller WTCrafts, and I want them both… It’s a shame that the rug isn’t “durable” according to the description as I’d love a NES controller door mat, but it would probably get knicked anyway.

Nintendo NES Controller Pillow

Ninjabot Nintendo Pin-Ups

The Peach Pin-Up above and the Daisy Pin-Up below are available from Ninja Bot‘s store for $20 each. It’s good to see Daisey getting her share of prime time, everyone always thinks of peach and daisy just plays 2nd fiddle. That said Daisy has only really been the goal of one Mario game, she just plays a bit part in a whole load of Mario sub-games, she’s not even Luigi to Mario’s Peach. Which is a shame, when peach got her own game where she was the protagonist.

Dinner is Coming Apron

It’s a shame that the BBQ pictured isn’t made out of the melted BBQ Tools of vanquished chefs… But still, I like the pun on the Stark family motto.

Book Tub!

<p>book tub.<br />

I like reading in the bathtub as much as the next literate person, but lets be realistic here, you are going to have one leaky bath tub if you make it out of books… I have no source for this image, and I guess if you lined the inside with a clear layer of plastic it could be pretty cool, but I’m going to assume that this is some kind of art project and not a functioning bath tub, which is a shame I really would like a bathtub made out of books…
