I’ve been holding onto this image for a while. It’s from the Agents of SHIELD show, when HYRDA revealed themselves. In true supervillain organization fashion, they just had to put their logo on the Plate Frame.

ThinkGeek – Tactical Holiday Stocking

November 20th, 2014


Leave it to ThinkGeek to come up with something like a ‘Tactical Stocking’. Made from “Heavy Duty Nylon”, the all-black tactical stocking features PALS webbing, carabiners, quick-release buckles, a top handle, a Velcro panel, bi-directional side zipper, and a small, external pouch.

If it were in some kind of Christmas-themed camo, and they lost everything but the PALS webbing, external pouch, and the Velcro panel, I might actually want one.

Just in time for the new Dumb & Dumber flick that released today, Violent Little Machine Shop is offering their brand-new ‘Put Out The Vibe’ patch as well as a sticker. Immortalizing the classic Icelandic Snow Owl Benefit scene (y’know, the one with the tuxedos?), the design is printed on a PVC patch and a weather tough sticker.

(I Can’t Belive It’s Not) MultiCam Monday – Army Commando Costume

November 10th, 2014

For this (I Can’t Believe It’s Not) MultiCam Monday, we’re reposting an old classic from three years ago. Why is it always during Halloween that the MultiCam ripoffs come out of the woodwork?

Available at Target, the boy’s Army Command Costume consists of two pieces, the uniform and helmet. It’s made from 70% polyester and is available in small, medium and large sizes. My favorite aspect of this costume is the ‘Army’ tag; it’s a nice touch that lets other people know: “Yes, I am pretending to be an Army Commando this fine Halloween’s night. Candy, please!” There’s also something familiar about the camouflage that I can’t quite put my finger on…

Iron Sky is a goofy movie that can be summed up as such: Moon Nazis.

The sequel looks even sillier.

Too Many Cooks

November 7th, 2014

I’m far from adverse when it comes to sharing Adult Swim programming on this website, although this one might be a bit ‘out of left field’. Just remember when watching it:

1) It’s extremely surrealist humor
2) You’re doing yourself no favor if you don’t watch the whole thing
3) If you have to skip ahead, it picks up around the 4 minute mark

Baskin-Robbins Offers Camouflage Ice Cream In Honor Of Veterans Day

November 6th, 2014

Camouflage Ice Cream

In honor of Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins is offering the limited ‘First Class Camouflage’ flavor through the month of November. It is a combination of Chocolate, Caramel, and Vanilla Cake flavors, making up respectively the brown, tan, and green colorway of the ice cream. Along with ‘First Class Camouflage’, Baskin-Robbins is also offering a camouflage waffle cone, and the First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae, which adds hot fudge, caramel praline, chopped OREO cookie pieces, and whipped cream to the mix.


Additionally, on Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins will donate 10 cents from each scoop of ice cream sold at its US locations to the USO.

As far as flavoring, it’s not too bad. The caramel is definitely the dominate flavor, and the vanilla tastes pretty sweet. The cone, a standard sugar waffle cone, was a nice touch.

(I Can’t Belive It’s Not) MultiCam Monday – Combat Military Hat

November 3rd, 2014


This costume USMC Cover I found today on sale at a Halloween supply store features a camo pattern that is very reminiscent of Crye precision’s standard MultiCam. As expected from a costume piece, it features a few defects, however it’s a pretty decent piece especially for the five dollars I got it for.
