Number 1000 Cufflinks

Vintage Typewriter Cufflinks

For the love of Etsy these recycled cufflinks are cool. Made from rare 1000 typewriter keys, they have polished and stuck to sterling silver backing.

You are probably saying, yeah they might be cool, but I don’t wear suits buddy. Well, someday no matter how anti-establishment you are, you’re going to a wedding, funeral, and most likely some other shindig where you’re going to look like a douchebag without a suit. And these cufflinks are going to provide the cool factor.

Bring the sounds of Vinyl to your iPad

I love vinyl

Got an iPad and a love of the sound of old vinyl records? Great, because now you can download an app call VinylLove that takes your, as close to the studio as you can get, music and fills it with pops and clicks. Basically making sound as if it’s playing on an old record player. It also has a feature where you can thumb through your virtual albums in a virtual crate.

Although I like my music clean sounding, I can understand the attraction to the warmth and feel of old records. But to make it even more real life, they should make it skip once in a while. Or the needle could skip across the album as they sometimes did. I guess that wouldn’t be a good selling point. $4.99

Android Alien Black Dial Watch

Android AD52K Alien Black Dial Watch

My favorite watches these days are the Android watches. I picked this one because it’s really unique. And you’re going to get attention for wearing it. Maybe not the kind of attention you want, as in hot girls. No, probably more like old X-Files fans and other assorted UFO nuts. But attention is attention, and the watch really is cool.

Anyway, maybe you’re one of those UFO nut jobs who has a fantasy of wanting to get beamed up and probed by the “greys.” Hey, I’m not one to judge. We all have our fantasies…weirdo. $85.98

World’s Largest Gummy Worm


Vat19 is advertising a 26 inch long Gummy Worm. And it’s not erotically weird at all. Not even the guy holding it with both hands in the photo above. And why would you not want a 26 inch Gummy Worm? You don’t like candy? Maybe you don’t like long and thick super sized candy that’s ribbed. What’s wrong with you?

I’ll tell you one thing, it wouldn’t be cool to see some hot women deep throating this thing. Especially ones with big tits. I think I’ll do a quick search of the web, just in case someone is abusing this innocent candy treat.

Steak Station

Steak Station

It’s about that time of year again to break out the grills. Good times! However grilling can be serious business if you’re going beyond brats and weenies.

If you want to really want to impress your buddies, grill steaks. But as you know, not everyone wants their steak done black and charcoal like. So you have to ask them how they want Theirs done, which means you have to know when to flip and when to pull ’em from the fire. The
Charcoal Companion Steak Station Digital Meat Thermometer makes it easy to grill the perfect steak. It lets you know when each steak is rare, medium or well done. Plus it monitors 4 steaks at a time. Nice deal for $21.99.
