If you happen to be a person who does the Tree Thing at the Holidays, it’s time to get that shit in order. I was in the Urban Outfitters on Fifth Avenue near 44th Street the other day and they had all kinds of fun ornaments to make a festive tree, such as this Pink Cupcake ornament, which you can see is quite sparkly. I like it.

Here are a bunch of them all hanging out together. “Ornament des Fêtes” translates to “Holiday Ornament”!

Bacon Thing of The Day: Sizzling Bacon Candy!

Bacon Pop Rocks

We are guessing that the Sizzling Bacon Candy that “explodes in your mouth” is essentially bacon flavored pop rocks. It might taste like ass, but we still want to try it.

Available for just $4 for two (2) packs (what a bargain!) from Urban Outfitters stores and online at This Link!

Thanks to Kat “Hello Kitty” Rim For The Tip!

Are you as excited as I am for the premier of the final episodes of Breaking Bad? As much as I am dying to see what happens next on the Best Show Ever in the Universe of All Time, I am truly sad that the series will be ending after these eight episodes air. Sigh. There is however a way to remember Breaking Bad always and forever, and that is with a set of awesome refrigerator magnets, which I saw on sale for $7 or 8 bucks at Urban Outfitters. You’re welcome. And don’t forget to tune into A&E on August 11th!

I’m always on the look out for Do It Yourself, Contemporary Design ideas for the home, and this empty Paint Can Chandelier, spotted hanging in Urban Outfitters at the corner of 72nd Street and Broadway, really caught my eye. You can see from the close-up photo below that this lighting fixture could probably be made with some inexpensive cables and a little home improvement electrical know-how Googled from the Interwebs.

Drinkman: The Walkman Shaped Hip-Flask

Drinkman Walkman Hip Flask
Drink in The Nostalgia

Hey Oldsters, who out there remembers way back when recorded music was first made “portable” through SONY’s invention of the Walkman cassette player? Let me repeat that: Walkman. Cassette. Player. Who knows what any of those words even mean, right? It was so long ago, and you probably weren’t even born yet.

But despite its relegation to the status of antique music listening device, the Walkman’s impressive girth has advantages over micro-thin iPod thingies in that, if you were to transform its shape into a container for alcohol, it would hold enough to get you sloshed.

Drinkman Hip Flask

Enter, Drinkman, the Walkman Shaped Hip-Flask, here to solve all kinds of needs. Created by UK design firm Mustard, (purveyors of fine pop culture-inspired gift items), Drinkman is the ideal hip-flask for those who love a bit of old school cool. Perfect for festivals and nights out, the reusable device holds 5 ounces (150ml) of your favorite boozy concoction.

Drinkman sells for just $12.95 and is available at This Link.

Haha! Funny, not racist!

Urban Outfitters Rips Off Street Artist Cali Killa


Photo By G

I’ve said it before, and I’m sure I’ll say it many times again before I shuffle off this mortal coil, that certain degrees of stealing are easily just as bad as murder. It’s pretty crazy that in the same week we saw Shepard Fairey acquitted of copyright infringement, we have a sort of “reverse appropriation” in a situation that was just brought to my attention by Geoffrey of According2G.com. As Geoffrey reports, the offense is quite flagrant and heinous.

The matter concerns the  iconic “Beware of Hipsters” image created by street artist Cali Killa, which has appeared on the streets of major US cities in including Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and New York, as well as being featured on many art sites, including According2G.com. Without seeking Cali Killa’s approval or permission, or making any kind of remunerative deal, Urban Outfitters is now selling a line of “Beware of Hipsters” T-shirts bearing Cali’s original graphic (Click Here to see the shirt)! What a bunch of dicks! Cali Killa will not see any income from sale of these T-shirts and that is just not right!

Until Urban Outfitters rights the wrong, Geoffrey and I are asking you all to boycott Urban Outfitters! If any legal experts can help out, please get in touch! If anyone knows Urban Outfitters CEO Glen Senk, please get in touch. Please Tweet about this, post this information on Facebook and forward to as many art blogs and media sites as you can. We cannot let Urban Outfitters get away with this! Please forward this information to everyone you can and boycott Urban Outfitters for STEALING the art work of Cali Killa.

Update Saturday 1/15/11:

Urban Outfitters has removed the shirt from their catalog! Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word!
