Holy Bouncing Boners Batman!

bonerboner clothing

Today's posts seem to be all about sexual organs. I don't know what's up. Maybe it's just that time of year; everyone is freaking out about what to get friends, family, significant others, etc. for the holidays. That's why I'm glad Hanukkah came early this year. I drove by the mall today and I was sure glad that I didn't need to go in! It looked like a madhouse. Made me horny! Speaking of which, for your online purchasing pleasure, I present Boner Clothing, "indie-casual clothing for the individual". A little redundant, but that never hurt nobody. Boner Clothing features beautifully printed Limited Ed. t-shirts for boys and girls. Boner Clothing's t-shirts come in editions of either 10 or 20 and feature a unique identifying stamp indicating how many were produced. For men, I particularly like the Warthog t-shirt for its prison-stripe aesthetic and the Gasmask tee 'cause I like gas masks (like the ones done by Three-Zero Toys). In the women's t-shirt arena, I like the Street Camel tee and the Spade tee 'cause I like camels and cards. The website is Flash heavy, so I haven't posted pics, but go check it out, I'm sure you will find something you like.

Lookin' 4 Poonanie!

Kaws x Santastic HasheemI can't believe the new Limited Ed. Kaws x Santastic Hasheem vinyl figure [pictured above] is sold out already! It just went on sale at noon Pacific time today. Oh well, there is always ebay. Or maybe one of my favorite online toy stores will get one. I'll let y'all know as soon as I hear something.

Death, Kill, Kill, Destroy!

Bounty Hunter Skull Zip Up Hoodie
Bounty Hunter Shark Knit Beanie
Span of Sunset has got some sick new Bounty Hunter gear in stock. My favorites are the Skull Zip Up Hoodie and the Shark Knit Beanie [pictured above]. Freakin' awesome! After seeing Toypunks I have a whole new level of respect for BxH. The only problem is their stuff is soooooooooooo expensive. The beanie is $55 and the hoodie is $190, damn!

He's Back

Well, Michael Lau is finally back with some new figures after the disappointing Mr. Shoe series. At least I thought they were disappointing, maybe some people thought they were cool. I thought they were just poorly sculpted shoes with even worse sculpted feet and a baseball cap. Nothing to write home about. I am much more of a fan of his 6" Gardener series. Which is a good thing, because he just released a bunch of new ones and Ningyoushi has them available to purchase. I'm not sure if Ningyoushi has all of the new releases because I haven't seen a complete list, but they do have DJ Tomy, Lazy DJ Tomy [pictured top row, left to right], Prodig, Young Prodig, and Lazy Prodig [second row, left to right]. How come all the lazy Gardeners gotta' be black, huh? Do Chinese people think all black people are lazy or is it just Michael Lau? Anyway, that is something that can be discussed later. For now, I just have to figure out how to get $190 without doing anything so I can pick up a DJ Tomy and Prodig figure. Those are my two favorites.

Death Pumpkin

Twim x Secret Base Death PumpkinSecret Base, in association with Twim, has released a new Limited Ed. Pumpkin Brain vinyl figure [pictured above and lit up below]. This "Death Pumpkin" is exactly like the Last Legend Pumpkin Brain that was released for Halloween, except that instead of glowing orange, this one is glowing slime green. Both contain a set of LEDs that light up when you shake 'em. I really like the slime green color of this figure, but I already have the orange Last Legend Pumpkin, so do I need another light-up, glowing Pumpkin Brain? The answer, of course, is yes! Alright, maybe not, but it is still pretty darn cool looking. Available now at both Span of Sunset and Toy Tokyo for around sixty bucks. Maybe while I am up in New York next week I will stop by Toy Tokyo and pick one up. We'll see. I guess it depends on how much it costs for me to get my car fixed this week.Twim x Secret Base Death Pumpkin

Merry Baby Jew Birthday!

Wootini Family Holiday ShowWootini is presenting their final exhibit of the year, the Super Awesome Holiday Family Show, beginning tonight at 7pm and running through January 12th. The show will be bringing together local artists David K. Rose, Casey Porn, Paul Friedrich, Bloo Empire, and Casey Robertson.

Special for this event, Wootini will be unveiling a new project consisting of "Mysterious" blind-boxed 6" x 6" stretched canvas prints created by each of the artists. That means, much like the mini-figures we have all grown to know and love – each is a mystery, until you purchase and open it. Buy more than one, trade with friends, give them as presents! Here are all the images that ‘could’ be in your mystery box:
Paul Friedrich Onion Head MonsterCasey Porn Squiddle Bit
Casey RobertsonBloo Empire
David K. Rose

Family will be bringing the tunes, as usual, and there will be Christmasy snacks and drinks. It should be a lot of fun. I will try to make it out, depending on whether I can pull myself away from my new iPod touch Hanukkah present. Soooo shiny.

I'm A Lumberjack And I'm Okay

Alife Everybody High Lumberjack PackI sleep all night and I work all day. I wear Alife Everybody High Lumberjack Pack sneakers [pictured above], I skip and jump, I go to the lavatory. On Wednesday I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea!

Just in time for Wintry weather (if you live somewhere other than North Cackalacka, where today it is supposed to get up to almost 80 degrees), Alife has released their 2007 Holiday Footwear. Included in the release are the Lumberjack Pack, Rain Pack and Ski Pack [pictured below, top to bottom]. They will be available not only at Alife stores, but also at American Rag, Barneys, Bloomingdales, Fred Segal, Conveyor, and Commonwealth. Telephone orders will also be accepted by Alife. This is one of my favorite sneaker releases so far from Alife. I like all of them! They would all be great for the situations that they are named after. I would have a hard time if I had to decide which of them I wanted. Luckily, at $125 to $145 each, I can't afford any of them, so I won't be getting any!Alife Everybody Low Lumberjack PackAlife Everybody High Rain PackAlife Everybody Flood Ski PackAlife Everybody Flood Ski Pack

Eat Me!

Mini Eater Rumble Monsters x Ningyoushi Exclusive figure
The new Limited Ed. Mini Eater Rumble Monsters x Ningyoushi Exclusive figure is now available. I'm not a huge fan of Rumble Monsters, but I do love clear vinyl and this figure has it in spades. Not only is it clear vinyl, it is packed with either a blue or pink tank (looks red to me in that picture) and a little car. This 4-inch tall figure will run ya' $48 and will sell out quick, but unfortunately I don't have exact numbers for this run.

Satan's Ghetto

Santas GhettoI got e-mail this morning from Pictures on Walls about the annual low-concept art event, Santa’s Ghetto, put on by graffiti wizard Banksy and a few of his pals. This year they chose Bethlehem as the location for their annual Christmas shoppe in order to cast further attention on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

At first, I was a little pissed off by this concept. I thought that the whole thing was some sort of political wrangling in support of the Palestinians' war against Israel, but upon further investigation, I read on The Point page that, "We would like to make it very clear Santa’s Ghetto is not allied to ANY race, creed, religion, political organization or lobby group. As an organisation the only thing we’ll say on behalf of our artists is that we don’t speak on behalf of our artists. This show simply offers the ink-stained hand of friendship to ordinary people in an extraordinary situation.

Every shekel made in the store will be used on local projects for children and young people. Not one cent will go to any political groups, governmental institutions or, in fact, any grown-ups at all."

That put me a little more at ease about the exhibit. It seems that Banksy and his associates are interested in helping the Palestinian children and don't support the Palestinian call for the eradication of Israel. Personally, I have nothing against the Palestinians on an individual basis, I am just against their call for the destruction of Israel and the genocide of the Jewish people. I think the Palestinians and Israelis could come to an easy solution to their conflict if that weren't the case. Or if one of the neighboring Muslim countries were willing to contribute some of their land for a Palestinian homeland.

There are 230 million Muslims in the Middle East and only 6 million Jews squished into a country smaller than the state of Rhode Island. You would think that some place like Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates, etc. would have a little extra land to support their fellow Muslims, but most of them also support the destruction of Israel, so that won't happen. At least Banksy and his crew are doing their part for a little peace and that is something to be thankful for this holiday season.

Tastes Like Strawberries

purple King Stampede Strawberry Cough t-shirtwhite King Stampede Strawberry cough t-shirt
Turntable Lab just got these chillin' King Stampede Strawberry Cough t-shirts [pictured above] in stock. Based on the sticky-icky that Michael Caine's character Jasper was slingin' in Children of Men, you figure these tees would be made of hemp or something, but they appear to be standard cotton. Cop one quick, 'cause it looks like Turntable Lab is the only place you can get 'em right now and they weren't meant to last. In purple or white, $35.

Adidas, Adidas, ADIDAS!!!

Adidas Light Side vs. Dark Side SuperstarsI like Adidas, always have. I have four pairs right now. If I didn't have so many already, I might have to add some of these to my collection. Also, it would be kind of a pain in the ass to get out to Long Beach to go to Proper to get a pair of these Adidas Light Side vs. Dark Side Superstars [pictured above]. I love the fact that they come packaged in a blister pack with ol' skool Star Wars-style graphics. Sweet. It would be a whole lot easier to go onto the Adidas Online Store and get a pair of these awesome, Limited Ed. Adidas x Dennis Busenitz High Score Gazelle Skate Shoe [pictured below]. I love the clear soles and that it says "High Score" in ol' skool video game font where it would normally say "Gazelle" on the side of the shoe. They are a little expensive at $150, but I'm sure they are cheaper than the Light Side vs. Dark Side kicks from Proper.Adidas x Dennis Busenitz High Score Gazelle Skate Shoe
