Kidrobot Gloomy Bear So freaking cute. Kidrobot makes some killer toys. You might remember my Madvillian toy and the video I made, it’s Kid Robot too. The whole back story behind Gloomy is hilarious Gloomy, an abandoned little bear, is rescued by Pity (the little boy). At first, he is cute and cuddly, but becomes more wild as he grows up. Since bears do not become attached to people like dogs by nature, Gloomy attacks Pitty even though he is the owner. So Gloomy has blood on him from biting and/or scratching Pity. You can get a bloodier version of Gloomy too. You get Gloomy at Magic Pony in Toronto.
Nothing excites me more than purchasing new electronic equipment. That’s right, I love this more than shopping for clothes, shoes, handbags, etc. I bought a new computer a little ahead of schedule. It’s beautiful. 22″ LCD screen. Nice wide screen action! I had one of the old and massive monitors before so this is a dream. It’s also Dual core. DUAL CORE baby! That is two Intel CPUs in my box, 2GB of RAM and a one Terabyte of harddrive space. I’m a happy camper 🙂 Unfortunately I’m having a problem with the onboard sound and I have to take it back to get fixed. Reinstalling the drivers did nothing. I called tech support, which is fairly irritating for me because the Men on these calls never think I have the knowledge I do. So this guy takes me through the same freaking steps I’ve already done many times over. Such a waste of time. I hate tech support. I’ll let you know the company I purchased with after I get this sound thing dealt …
I was asked to beta test BlogTV.ca. So I made this video for my Madvillian toy. The music is from Madvilliany, one of my favourite albums. I’m still figuring out how this works. While I was recording this I had this little speech and send some shout outs to blogtv and Magic pony, but that wasn’t picked up my the video camera’s mike. Boo Urns. One thing I don’t like is the autoplay. Sorry everyone. I hate it enough to move the video under the cut. Do check it out.
The illest villian, Madvillain Kidrobot and Stones Throw Records have teamed up to create the Madvillain toy. I’m so psyched, Madvillian is the coolest villain ever. It’s even got MF Doom’s mask, how great is that. If you have no idea what I’m talking about you need to get your hands on the album Madvillainy. It’s one of my favourite albums ever. Thanks to the crew at Magic Pony for stocking this. image: magic-pony.com
Tigrito by Alessi I loved this cat bowl from the first time I laid eyes on it. It is the cutest cat product I’ve ever seen. The two bowls are perfect for people with two cats like me.

Erasable Shower Notepad
I always think of something really, really important in the shower. Of course, as soon as I get out, that important tidbit is now gone to the ether. This allows you to record those brilliant pieces of thinking so you don’t forget later.

Airyusha Robotan Toilet Paper Holder
I have 2 cats. I love them dearly but 1 has a habit of destroying rolls of toilet paper. If she can reach the paper it’s done. I’ve had to remove them from the holder because she just goes to town on it. This Robotan toilet paper holder would be amazing. It doesn’t mount anywhere so I could just place it on the counter or shelf. Even for all it’s practical reasons the most impressive thing about this is that it’s so damn cute!!!
My Shure headphones.I’m enjoying the sound that these earphones have. Much, much better than my Sony’s. I am quite impressed with the thickness of wire they use. My Sony’s used a much thinner wire which apparently couldn’t stand up to task of being my headphones and broke. So, I splurged on these Shure headphones. And I’m quite happy about it. It’s taking some time getting used to the thicker wires. The configuration of the ear pieces is different from my Sony’s also. Overall, I’m happy. shure, ipod
I want a new purple iSkin for my iPod. The one I have now is broken and needs replacing. I hear from the local computer shop that iSkin have been pretty bad at sending out stock so there were no new 3G skins to be bought. Boo iSkin boo. [tags]ipod, iskin, shopping[/tags]
E2c Sound Isolating Earphones I’m going to give up on my sony pieces of shit, and get some real headphones, the Shure E2c are it. It is the cheapest version in the line but at $109CDN they are still pretty pricey.
