Robotic baby mover arounder.

Robotic baby mover arounder.

The perfect movable command chair for your little Dr. Evil. It’s supposed to avoid obstacles automatically. Suuure, it does. From what I can tell that steering wheel works. But where’s the brake daddy? Look how much from that kid is having as he plots global domination. Red Ferret via The […]

Dad-o-Matic, dad-o-mite.

Dad-o-Matic, dad-o-mite.

Being a dad just got that little bit easier with the Dad-o-Matic. What parent doesn’t get sick of repeating themselves over and over again. Enter the Dad-o-Matic: a handy little device that plays six key phrases over and over. It doesn’t say, “You are a terrible disappointment to me.” or […]

I'm not thirsty anymore, can we play?

I'm not thirsty anymore, can we play?

If you’re gonna drink your beverages out of a plastic bottle, then why not reuse that bottle for some construction fun? Y Water is totally organic, and comes in four flavors: Brain Water, Bone Water, Muscle Water, and Immune Water. I could probably use a little of each.  When you’re done, you […]

Headlamp Happiness

Headlamp Happiness

Mellow Fever Review – Gustafer#3

Mellow Fever Review – Gustafer#3

Great review for my pal Gustafer Yellowgold’s latest CD/DVD set. Oh yeah, and there’s something about a grainy documentary short as well. Someone once told me that I have an uncanny resemblance to Sweetman Masters. Not exactly sure how to take that.  I stumbled upon Gustafer Yelowgold a few years ago […]
