Ear Mug lets you accessorize

34rtg

Can your mug do that?

Didn't think so.

"Dress up your mug with your favorite earring or stud."

Once upon a time, in a century long past, I went out with a real-life Barbie Girl who told me, "It's all about the accessories."

Who am I to argue?

Ceramic; 4.3"H x 3.3"Ø; holds 11.8 oz.

How much Klout do you have?

11111

Say what?

Long story short: Klout's calculating engine processes who you are in the virtual world and spits out a number — from 0 to 100 — telling you how you rate.

Me (top), not so high. 

My friend Erin Biba over at Wired magazine?

Now there's someone to conjure with.... Back story here

This just in: Klout has been named Official Online Influence Guide for Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

And no — you can't look it up.

Boxcooler Backpack Fridge

Box_cooler3

"Thermoelectric Peltier elements replace the traditional freezer batteries."

Designed by Sebastian Bertram.

That's very nice — but it's still in beta.

Box_cooler2

What about today, when you're shvitzing all over the place?

Huh?

What you can do for me today, joe?

I thought you'd never ask.

For you — not someone's pipe dream but the real deal — there's this:

It's called the Chilly Box Cooler Backpack.

No Peltier elements, just good old-fashioned passive insulation.

$42.95.

Chill.

Just named Official Backpack of Ned Vizzini.

"Angst — 20 years too soon"

45fjytckjlk

The above came in from a reader late Monday evening.

I repost it as it arrived in my in-box.

Yes, I know who sent it.

No, I have no idea why it was sent or what it means.

That remains for others (perhaps even the writer, if she/he is so inclined) to deconstruct and interpret for the rest of us.

Or maybe it's better we just consider it as it is, sans explication.

What is it?

Dfghat

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: Not edible.

Hint the 2nd: Not plastic ("that's fantastic!").

Hint the 3rd: It's not bigger than a breadbox.

Hint the 4th: It has nothing to do with cord control. Or crowd control.

Enough already.

Surf's Up — Underwater Waves by Mark Tipple

1

"Mark Tipple took these stunning shots of swimmers and surfers emerging underwater

2

engulfed in clouds of whitewater

55

while being frequently rocked by the waves himself."

44

"The 29-year-old captures the split-second moments off the Australian coast

333

and regularly gets beaten in the head by his 5kg specially-adapted camera for his troubles."

55h

"Mr. Tipple, from Sydney, Australia,

9999

came up with the idea of photographing waves underwater

8

after becoming frustrated with 'normal' surf photography,

8888

and wanted to capture the moments from a different perspective."

Instant Backrest

"Turn any patch of sand into a chair."

Then you put your towel down and voila, a seat.

They call it the "Beach Thingy" but we don't have to.

Another excellent candidate for the bookofjoe Product Naming School.
