Death by robot? Death by cactus? Killer lambs? Read on...

Strange Deaths Part One

Strange Deaths Part Two

If you're going to have a strange death, you might as well have a strange headstone to match. Really odd gravestones.

Have a Penney, Leave a Penney

Awesomosity, thy name is the 1975 J.C. Penney Catalog. Infant leisure suits, fuzzy black toilet seats and more! Jancee Dunn has two great pages (here and here) worth of scans. Let the pimp hat/banana pants fashion revolution begin! (via Boing Boing)

Kickin' and scratchin'

DJ Sara (age 8) and DJ Ryusei (who's 5), scratchin' the vinyl and looking pretty cute, too.

Design, etc.

To reduce the risk of me losing my privileges as a card-carrying member of The Guy Club, let me first mention this: I can't say that I'd buy much of the stuff for sale on Etsy, (which specializes in selling handmade crafty-type items) but their web site design is not only beautiful and mind-bogglingly inventive, but really fun to explore.

Start out at either Colors (where you can click and match any color off the onscreen palette to a like-colored item in their inventory. Click on the item and the box expands to display a description, price, link to the seller's/artist's home page so you can see more items from just them, etc. You can also click and drag these little windows, resizing them and moving them where you need them. Here's a screengrab I took from some random items. Click the image below to play around in Colors a bit.

Another really nifty way to present newly posted items is their Time Machine, which has a crazy backwards-running clock and a hypnotic never-ending(?) spiral of... well, you just need to check it out. Click the screengrab below or the following link to get to Time Machine.

Laugh it up, fuzzball

Someone's vacuum sounds just like Chewbacca. (via Look At This...)

This online costume shop purports this to be a "Star Wars Chewbacca Fleece". Huh? No no no no no... Looks more like an Ewok with a mullet, although without the glaringly obvious zippers showing like in that cinematic treasure Return of the Jedi.

Speaking of Jedi, there seems to be no love lost between Episode VI and blogger Ray over at The Rec Show. Return of the Jedi - The Cinematic Revolution

Now this is a little odd... A barbershop quartet version of The Ewok Celebration Song (a/k/a "Yub Nub"), which you may have heard at the end of Return of the Jedi, unless of course you were like me, frantically trying to puncture your eardrums with a ballpoint pen in an effort to make it stop make it stop FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD PLEASE MAKE THE EWOKS STOP SINGING!!!
