Handerpants seem to be fingerless gloves that looks suspiciously like tidy-whities. You can get a pair for just $12 here.  Oh, there’s a Handerpants ringtone for your mobile phone too. Other than the awkwardness, I only see one downside.  I’d be afraid to get them dirty…because I wouldn’t want skid marks on my gloves. – […]

Mr. Boozy the liquor squirrel

Posted by: Dave In: Food & Drink|Shopping|Weird

Mr Boozy is always ready for the party. I’m not sure how I feel about drinking booze from the neck of a small defenseless woodland creature. Regardless, you can find many more oddities of taxidermy here. – Dave

The Sno-Baller

Posted by: Dave In: Gadgets|Shopping

Friends south of the Mason-Dixon line will not truly understand the importance this wonderful device. However, all of my north eastern and mountain state pals will see just how awesome the Sno-Baller would be in a snowball fight.

Amazon sells DRM-free music downloads

Posted by: Dave In: Music|Shopping

So iTunes is about to get a whooping if they don’t do something about their DRM.  Amazon is creeping up behind them with a sack full of nickels. iTunes just became my second digital music store of choice.  Same price, no DRM.  Amazon, you win. Amazon’s MP3 service. -Dave

I wrote about BookMooch a few months ago and I just recently discovered a similar service for DVDs, CDs and Games. The service is called SwitchPlanet and it’s pretty cool. You sign up and tell SwitchPlanet the movies, music & games you are interested in. When other members send you that stuff on your wish […]

  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
