HauteMessThreads on Etsy has available this Boba Fett-inspired cooking apron. It’s 100% cotton and features a 2.5 inch brown waistband, halter style straps that tie at the neck, and two functioning pockets. Each apron is made-to-order and one size fits most. It’s part of a larger collection of villain-inspired aprons called, appropriately enough, ‘Grillain Villains’.
Hell yeah! B.P.R.D. summer camp!
This jacket was only worn once and caused 17 unexpected pregnancies before it was seized by the CIA, sealed in a vault and thrown into lake Superior.
Check out Plaid Stallions, it’s a great website that functions as “…a love letter to growing up in the seventies.”
The Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations) Kit contains practically every tool and accessory you could ever possibly need to combat the zombie menace . It’s admittedly more comprehensive than the offering by TACWRK, with a price to match:
$31,375.00 $23,999.00 vs. $11709.50 (€ 8,999.00), but getting this you’d be missing out on a sweet Stihl chainsaw.
The tactical shot pouch is designed to hold a standard hip-flask with a capacity of 240 ml (8 oz). PALS webbing allows for attachment on MOLLE gear while a wide Velcro flap secures the flask to prevent accidental falling and a D-ring allows for easy opening and attaching small objects. Velcro on the flap allows for the attachment of morale patches. Available in the following colors: olive green, black, flecktarn, woodland, MultiCam, DPM, coyote, wz.93, red, CCE, snow.
For 160 Microsoft points, or 2 dollars, Activision is offering a line of in-game weaponry personalization packs for Black Ops II. These packs include a new weapon skin, three optics reticules for the ACOG, EOtech, and Reflex sights, and a themed ‘calling card’. Skins include Dia de los Muertos, Graffiti, Jungle Warfare, and Bacon (seen above); if you’re wondering, yes, there is a zombie skin.
No, Demeter Fragrance Library’s zombie cologne doesn’t smell like the rotting flesh of undead humans. It’s actually stated as smelling like a forest floor (dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth). the ‘for her’ variant offers a scent that’s slightly lighter with a “…a touch of Dregs from the bottom of the wine barrel for that feminine touch.”
The Flask (yes, that is its name) is the product of a collaborative effort between Oakley and Macallan. Laser-welded and made from steel, aluminum and carbon fiber, The Flask is a nigh-indestructible carrying option for your liquor of choice, which pours in easily thanks to the included aluminum funnel.
Yeah, posting this video is about a month too late to be completely topical, but Taiwan-based Next Media Animation’s take on just about anything is good for a quick laugh.
North Korea has, for the second time recently, released a propaganda video that steals assets from a popular Western-developed video game, this time music from ‘Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’. The first instance of this was an earlier video that featured footage of a war-torn New York City that was clearly taken from ‘Modern Warfare 3′. The video was taken down from YouTube due to a copyright violation, but it’s still embedded on Kotaku for those who are curious.
I watched this video exactly three times before I finally had the sense to Google ‘Harlem Shake’ and figure out exactly what the hell was going on.
While I prep an article more appropriate for the content usually featured on this site, I offer this topical video explaining exactly why you should put all your faith in the Baltimore Ravens winning the Super Bowl later today.
Edit: He called it; always bet on Carl.
At trade shows I always have my camera out, as evidenced by these two pics I took while in the restroom at SHOT. Cheers to Cerakote for their creative use of advertising space…
Arsenal Firearms’ AF2011-A1 was on display at SHOT Show this year. For those who are unfamiliar, the AF2011-A1 is a double-barreled 1911… yeah, you read that right. Both the frame and slide are custom machined from 39NiCrMo steel, although it does use standard Colt 1911 parts for many of the internals; the sights are also interchangeable with a standard 1911. The magazine consists of two separate 8-round magazines connected by a single floor plate. The company claims the AF2011-A1 is currently the “most powerful and highest stopping power semiautomatic pistol on the world market”, as a payload exceeding 4000 grains of .45 ACP (16+2 capacity) can be fired from the pistol in roughly 3 seconds. Other specifications include a total length of roughly 8 inches with a barrel length of 5 inches, a width of two inches, and a weight of roughly 4 lbs unloaded.
Illustrator and copywriter Alexander Barrett created this cat-themed camouflage called, appropriately enough, catmouflage.
The term ‘Space Marine’ was around long before Games Workshop’s ‘Warhammer 40K’ property came into existence, having first appeared in 1932′s ‘Captain Brink of the Space Marines’ by Bob Olsen. Despite this, the web serial ‘Spots the Space Marine’ by M.C.A. Hogarth was taken off Amazon after Games Workshop made a claim that the term ‘Space Marine’ is their exclusive trademark. Hogarth states that according to the Trademarks Database, Games Workshop’s trademark on ‘Space Marine’ only extends to “board games, parlor games, war games, hobby games, toy models and miniatures of buildings, scenery, figures, automobiles, vehicles, planes, trains and card games and paint, sold therewith.”, so it looks like fiction isn’t covered. To further make Games Workshop look like bastards, part of the reader contributions towards ‘Spots the Space Marine’ is donated to Wounded Warrior Project and Soldiers’ Angels.

Darwin Aerospace has found a more unique use for drone aircraft: the speedy delivery of delicious burritos. Sadly, the earliest we’re likely to see this as a commercial product is 2015, as the FAA is required to introduce regulations on commercial drones by September of that year.

Winnifred Beach has created possibly the only bathrobe that’s suitable for safari, or at least looks the part. It features a brushed cotton-twill exterior with a cotton-terry lining, two large side cargo pockets (able to fit an iPad), two chest pockets with Velcro flaps, one waist-high utility pocket (able to fit an iPhone), and one utility pocket on the left arm with Velcro flap. Additional features include: reenforced “shooting jacket” shoulder/chest patches, button epaulettes, cotton-twill belt, and nylon hanging loop. It’s unisex and “singularly sized for everyone” (read: one-size-fits-all), just roll the sleeves to the desired length.
I stopped by the liquor store today (don’t judge) and noticed these bottles of KRU82 vodka on the shelf. As you can see, they’re metallic, shatterproof bottles with resealable caps and black straps with metal carabiners attached, and they go up to 1.75L in size. If one were so inclined, the container could make a handy emergency survival bottle, provided one had the foresight to bring a bottle of vodka with them while “…hiking, fishing, sailing, skiing or whatever…”
