Did you ever see the movie Fight Club? It is pretty good, if a bit disturbing, and is sometimes known in popular culture for the bars of Fight Club Soap that were given out to journalists and probably also movie theater owners as a promotional item when the film was first released. While soap-making is a sub-plot thread within the film (don’t ask) these bars of soap do not actually appear in the movie. In short order, however, sellers of novelty items started making Fight Club soap that you could actually buy, and now you can find these bars all over with a variety of sayings on them. Because that is how it works.

If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to see a photo of a Blob Fish online, then you know that this Blob Fish stress toy (from our friends at Gift Republic) bears an uncanny resemblance to the real thing.
It’s too bad that I couldn’t wait for Halloween – which is understandable, being as it’s more that ten months away — to post this very creepy Cherry-scented Shower Gel disguised as a gruesome bag of blood.
There’s a Tiki Bar up the block from me that has a row of little solar-powered Hula Dancer figures lined up in the front window, and the sunlight makes them dance tirelessly each day until it sets; so enchanting. And so it is with the Waving Queen Liz I saw at the recent NY Now Summer Marketplace. This Solar Queen greets you with a subtle twist of the wrist if you just expose her to lamplight (no sun needed)! Best of all, she may arrive dressed in Pink!
