Transformus Festival

I am travelling to Deerfields, North Cackalacky, outside of Asheville, this weekend for the first annual Transformus Festival. It is loosely based on and associated with the Burning Man Festival held yearly in Nevada. Ryan, a.k.a. Spaceboy, and I will be performing as our favorite super-group, Project Daedalus, on the main stage Saturday night. It should be psychofunkadelicious. I am counting the minutes here at work until I leave, 'cause it's a three-and-a-half hour ride to Deerfields. Yippee! I guess I should put some Limited Ed. stuff here. has a report about some new Limited Ed. Motorola Cell Phones:

Woopadeedoo! They are all colorful and crap. One of them is even made by clothing label Phat Farm and includes an SD card slot and an IR port. Spiffy.

Triple Trouble, Yo!

Speaking of Triple Trouble, this has got to be one of the coolest, hardest to find, and most expensive toys I have ever seen. It is actually three, three, three toys in one! Only at Toy Tokyo, it's the Limited Ed. 12" Beastie Boys figures:

From the album Hello Nasty these bad brothers in a sardine can come with the outfits that they wore in the Intergalactic video. If I had the money they would be on my shelf faster than you can say, "Sabotage!"


Kidrobot,, Action Figure Times, etc., etc. all have pictures from the San Diego Comic Convention on their websites. There are plenty of new Limited Ed. toys and hotties in cosplay for me to drool over for the next day or so. Enjoy!

Sorry about that last post, folks. I was having some technical difficulties.

Where Have All The Flowers Gone?

As my brother Seth would say, "If they were up your ass you would know where they are." And he would be right. Here's something that would probably fit up there real nice and tight. It sure would be a delight. And I say that I'm not gay. And yet I talk about shoving this Limited Ed. Dahlia Flower Series Kaleidoscope By Kittlesons:

Up my ass. For $965.00 I better make sure I had a nice soapy enema before I befoul this bauble. Sure it looks like a fancy glass dildo, but it also looks like a fancy glass bong... er, waterpipe. For smoking tobacco, yeah.

Damn, I gotta' take a dump after shoving this Limited Ed. Tulip Flower Series Kaleidoscope By Kittlesons:

Up my ass. There is definitely something wrong with me today. I think I must have the Wednesday crazies. Hump day is getting to me. Looking for Limited Ed. flower kaleidoscopes, bongs and dildos. What am I thinking? I must be thinking about the video my friends shot this week for Bret Michaels, lead singer of Poison. Now there's a man who I might let violate my precious ruby-red star fruit.

Bass! How Low Can You Go?!

Death row? What a brotha' knows. Limited Ed. may not know how to play bass (but he can sure as hell sing bass), but he does know a pretty one when he sees it. And this Limited Ed. 2004 Music Man Stingray:

is no exception. Just look at the fine craftsmanship, the exquisite mother-of-pearl finger board, the special Limited Ed. neck plate, and the gold silk-screen text on the headstock. Also, check out this Limited Ed. 2004 Music Man Stingray 5:

It has a different body style from the other Limited Ed. Stingray, kind of like the variations in body style of my favorite automobile. Music123 also has some Limited Ed. Acoustic Basses as well as this Limited Ed. Michael Kelly Legacy Dragonfly Flame Mandolin:

And this exceptionally cool Epiphone Bob Marley Commemorative Les Paul:

It has a portrait of Bob on the body of the guitar, Jamaican flag color inlays on the fret board, "One Love" on the headstock, a built-in spliff holder, and a pound of fresh Lamb's Bread stashed in the body. Okay, so those last two things are not true, but they should be, in order to honor Bob's memory, or lack thereof. It does include a hemp gig bag, though. So put that in your pipe and smoke it.

100th POST!!!

Amazingly and scarily I have reached 100 posts on my blog. I really didn't expect to be able to find that much Limited Ed. crap. But it just keeps flowing. I went through some of my old posts and decided to revisit an old theme: What is it with Yoda statues?

This is the second life-size Yoda I have found, both Limited Ed., both ridiculously expensive. Check out the quality rendering on this attractive Limited Ed. Bronze Yoda Statue:

It is a reproduction of a statue that is at Skywalker Ranch and there are only twenty-five of them in the world. If you thought that was cool, you scruffy-looking nerf-herder, check out this Limited Ed. Darth Vader Helmet:

It is actually wearable! For just thirteen hundred bucks you too can dress like Darth Vader for Halloween and not get laid! It will definitely come in handy next summer when the final, thank God, installment of the Star Wars sixology is released.

I think the coolest Limited Ed. stuff on the Star Wars online shop are these Pez dispensers:

This stuff may very well be the nerdiest Limited Ed. stuff I could find. Almost as nerdy as the Apple shoes.

I conclude my 100th post with something a little more cool. Figuro is taking pre-orders for the new Limited Ed. Kill Bill Vol. 2 DVD Japan Only Box Set:

This box set will be released on October 8th in Japan and will feature the Japanese version of Kill Bill Vol. 2, a Love Bride Be@rbrick, a Pai Mei keyholder, a 24 page color booklet, a Kung Fu t-shirt, and ten collector's cards. There will only be 30,000 of these produced, which doesn't seem so limited to me, but I guess if everyone in Japan buys one, they should go pretty quick. Get one to accompany your Kill Bill Vol. 1 DVD Japan Only Box Set.

Yeah, so my 100th post was kind of lame, nothing to write home about, really stupid, etc. Enjoy!

Black-Eyed Pod

Jaguar has teamed up with Apple to give away a Limited Ed. Black iPod in honor of their Jaguar X-Type website. There were only 75 black iPod's made and there is only one left and it is the one that they are giving away. It looks pretty cool, but it's no fourth generation iPod.

Dunk Life

Have you ever just wanted to take life and dunk it?! Slam it down hard so the rim breaks and the backboard shatters. Well, now you can get the same experience from an automobile. If you live in Japan or Europe, that is. It's called the Honda Life Dunk:

It sure looks like the kind of car that really grabs life by the ball and slams it home. I don't think a basketball player would actually fit in this car because the wheelbase is only about 93 inches. Compare that to the 130 inch wheelbase of a real American 1959 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, one of the largest cars ever made. The Eldorado is nealy a hundred inches longer than the Life Dunk. Also, the Life Dunk only weighs 417 pounds, versus the half ton weight of the Eldorado. It would only take a couple of basketball players to carry around the Life Dunk.

For all the lady ballers out there, ya' got the Life Dunk Diva:

And here's some evidence that the Honda Life Dunk is available in Europe as well. The Life Dunk has been around for about four years and the last model to come out was the 2003, but I just heard about it 'cause I live in the good ol' US of A and we're a little bass-ackwards around these parts.

I know this isn't really Limited Ed. stuff, there are probably a million of these in Japan, but I just thought it was funny when I heard the name and it reminded me of my friend Ryan who is a designer for And 1.

Deli Boy, Jr.

Check out this p.h.a.t. 1990 Toyota Deliboy that these Commie fuckers got fer sale on that thar internet thingy:

I used to live in a van just like that. Sure was cozy. Stayin' warm in the Siberian waste land with a can o' kerosene can be tough, though. But she's only got 228,890 km on 'er. Damn, my wife's got more miles on 'er than that! At 85 hp, she ain't no Maserati, but I wouldn't want to live down by the river in a Maserati neither. Forty-two hunerd bucks or 122,136.00 rubles is a little more 'an I can afford fer a new home, and then I'd have to spend $300 to convert 'er to biodiesel, so I definitely cain't afford 'er, but she sure is purty, ain't she.
Thanks to Possum, our roving reporter, for this review.

Yo Mama's Got Snakeskin Teeth

What is up with all of the custom, Limited Ed. snakeskin shoes that are coming out this summer? Freshness Magazine has information on the new Limited Ed. snakeskin Adidas Fleetwood Low:


and Superstars:

They also reported on the Asics Top Seven Snakes:

and the new Nike Skin Pack (pictures not available yet) which will be dropping later this summer. Freshness did miss out on the new Limited Ed. DC Shoe Co Manteca Snakeskins:

and the Limited Ed. Puma 'Majesty' Snakes:

Now I just need a snakeskin afro with a chin strap to go along with all of my new snakeskin shoes.

Wrestling Endangered Species Is Fun!

Nasty Nip, one of the most racially insenstively named websites I have ever visited, has these nice little impossible to find Limited Ed. WWF T-Shirt & BE@RBRICK set:

Also, check out the Hello Kitty Stash Bag:

For all your stashable needs... wink, wink. Also, take a look at this scary little Barbapapa Plush:

It is very reminiscent of the McDonald's advertising character Grimace. It becomes even more frightening when you see the Barbapapa Shiatsu Massager:

They remind me of some very colorful buttplugs (NSFW). Great for the bath!

You So Ugh Lee!

U - G - L - Y! You ain't got no alibi! Kidrobot already has pictures up on their website of the new Limited Ed. Uglydolls Vinyl and keychain plush figures that drop later this summer. They are so ugly they are cute, or is it the other way around? I guess you will just have to judge for yourself. My favorites are Ice Bat:

And Target:

I can't wait for these guys to come out so that I can add them to my vast, ever expanding collection. I have always liked the plush Uglydolls, but felt it was a little sissy buying stuffed animals. But vinyl figures are a completely different story. They aren't sissy at all, no.

Something that I should have waited for, but couldn't, because my brother Seth bought me one of the older versions for my birthday, is the new iPod:

So far, I have seen information about it on, Engadget, Spymac, Mac Rumors, and MSNBC/Newsweek. You can order them now from the Apple Store.

BTW: Where have you gone Ivonne?

Beaten To The Punch

Cool Hunter Josh Rubin beat me to the punch on this one. A new pair of Limited Ed. Puma Roma's:

And after I spent the whole day at work yesterday looking for cool shoes. Well, that and porn. I love when I'm the only one in the office.

Alrighty then. If you liked those sneakers, check out these Limited Ed. PF Flyers - PF Grounder Reissues by Justin Bua:

According to Crooked Tongues news:
PF Flyers have teamed up with visionary street artist Justin Bua from New York, applying his unique designs to the original PF Flyer model, the Grounder Reissue. There are three limited edition styles of PF Flyer by BUA - The Baller, The DJ and The Boom Box - all of which will be available from select stores throughout the USA, Europe and Asia.
Out of the three different style shoes, I gotta' say I like the Boom Box versions the best. If you like Justin Bua's work, check out some of these Limited Ed. prints. I really like this one, entitled "El Guitarrista":

It reminds me of the artwork of Ernie Barnes who did the famous painting "The Sugar Shack":

Which is seen at the beginning and end of the TV show "Good Times". Ernie Barnes is from my home town of Durham, North Cackalacky, so I am quite familiar with his work, which is well represented around these parts. Bua's work also reminds me of the paintings of Thomas Hart Benton. I especially like this painting, entitled "The Boy" from 1950:

And that's your art lesson for today. Any questions?

Limited Ed.'s New Pussy...

...Cat is a cute little calico named Kallifrances "Patches" McGillicutty or Kallie for short:

Here she is reading a note that I left her to empty her litter box and take out the garbage. I don't think she was too happy about doing chores, but like I told her, "You gotta' pull your own weight around here."

I initially wanted to call her just "Patches," but it sounds too much like a boys name, because it reminds me of that song "Patches" by Clarence Carter:
Patches, I'm dependin' on ya' son,
To pull the family through,
My son, it's all left up to you.
So, her name is Kallie, named for her being a calico cat and after the Hindu goddess Kali, the ferocious Devi goddess. Speaking of which, I really want one of these Kali baseball jerseys:

It's pretty sweet. I could wear it to all of the Hindu functions I attend.

Kallie could never replace Raga, and I will never forget Raga, and I will shed a tear every year on June 22nd for her, but it has been fun having a new kitten in the house. The only problem is that I get no sleep with her attacking my feet all night long. She really is the goddess of time and of the transformation that is death.

Sorry it has taken me so long to post, but I have been playing with my new kitty-cat. Check out the new Limited Ed. Pimp Watch and Playstation 3 info page while I sit here and stroke my pussy.

Limited Ed.'s Urban Vinyl Dance Party!

I was really bored last night, so I decided to arrange some of my urban vinyl action figures, "dolls" for those of you who want to make it sound gay, into a dance party scene. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being gay, only that guys who play with dolls may seem to be gay, but I'm not. I'm sure I'll probably get a bunch of comments about the whole "gay" thing. Just ignore that last bit there. I guess I could go back and erase that stuff, but that would be censoring myself, and that's not what my blog is about. Anyway, enough with the stupid stuff, here's the urban vinyl dance party:

YAY!!! This photo features, from left to right, the DJ battle version of DJ Jammie by Jason Siu, Hoodz Vapor by Mezco, B/W by Michael Lau, Dancing with Gravity Kurt by Jason Siu, Chung Shan by Jason Choy, BB by Michael Lau, the DJ battle version of DJ Dom by Jason Siu, and Box C by Michael Lau. I really spend way too much time, money and energy on these toys, but I refuse to grow up until I absolutely have to. Which may be never. Now, back to work.

Limited NPR

Well, Limited Ed. is back at work today, and he has gotten bored harrassing innocent people on their website comments pages, so he figured he would start talking about himself in the third person again. No, that's not it. He figured he would go look for some good Limited Ed. stuff. Yeah, that's the ticket. John Lovitz.

Anyway, on a less mentally handicapable note, check out this Limited Ed.NPR Model One Radio:

Working with Henry Kloss and Tivoli Audio, NPR has enhanced this classic desktop radio with their logo and a walnut finish! Real walnut! It also has all the bells and whistles you will need to listen to both AM and FM radio, including: an on/off/channel selector knob, a volume control knob, a tuning knob, a built-in antenna, a headphone jack, an input jack, and a speaker! Everything you need to get crystal clear NPR reception.

Also take a look at this Limited Ed. 2003 NPR Collectible Ornament:

Now, when you are listening to Talk of the Nation or Morning Edition you can use this ornament to pretend you are talking to Neal Conan or Melissa Block.

Well, I guess I should get back to harrassing the innocents of the internet. The question is, "Is anyone truly innocent?" Especially on the internet.

Limited Ed. is very happy that John Kerry chose John Edwards as his running mate, because elections are beauty contests, and as a caller to The State of Things on NPR mentioned, "John Edwards is hot!"

R.I.P. Marlon Brando

Well, it's another sad day for the world of entertainment. First, the mediocre actor Ronald Reagan passes away, then the excellent musician Ray Charles, and now the versatile actor Marlon Brando. About working on the Superman films Mr. Brando once said,
I had only a small part in Superman, but since it was a popular movie and my contract gave me 11.3 percent of the gross, I made about $14 million for less than three weeks' work. When Alexander and Ilya Salkind, the producers, asked if they could use footage from the picture in a sequel, Superman II, I asked for my usual percentage, but they refused, and so did I.
He was truly a hero to actors everywhere. From The Wild One to On the Waterfront to A Streetcar Named Desire to The Godfather to Apocalypse Now to The Island of Dr. Moreau he showed the strength and versatility of his talent and his uncanny ability to gain weight with each new role. He will be missed.

In other news, blow the head off of Osama Bin Ladin with these Limited Ed. Fireworks! Happy 4th of July all you proud Americans out there!
