So here are some cool and weird stuff that I’ve been meaning to post about separately but decided to throw all the strange and unusual into one post. I know, it’s like one huge bizarre post but trust me it’s better this way- get the crazziness out of the way!

-Anywho, I think the most peculiar one is the Oven Lounge- whoever made that has a bounty on his head from Betty Crocker. Sh*t’s gonna get real when she shows up with an electric mixer, rubber gloves and a a tub of lard at his front door. I don’t even know where I’m going with that one so let’s get on the next one.

-Rubber Duckies are cool especially ones with tea leaves up their whoo-has. Ha ha.

-The Inner Beauty shirt is definitely a cannibal’s dream menu. Just add Chianti and fava beans. Yeah, so I necessarily wouldn’t wear that.

-Plug and Socket ring is a nice alternative to those cheezey broken heart necklaces. Except it seems the plug has the upper hand in most violent situations.I’ll take the plug.

-Check out the cool street art on Mercer St. in NYC – although it’s probably hidden under the snow and ice right now.

-Ride the skeleton bike… perfect for causing car accidents and freaking out small children and the elderly. The head and arms move when you make a turn.

Voila!

Beijing designer Xiao Li designed this capsule collection inspired by tin robots! Some of may know that I love love love robots and those vintage tin robots are the favorites. I have this tin robot that I attach to my handbag sometimes- it’s even named after me! Hahhaha. I cant’ hate on anything robot related, so I’ll go ahead and give this an A+++++. Even though the fourth photo looks like a busted diaphragm around her neck, I have to appreciate the craftsmanship. This collection reminds of when I would wear an empty hamper when I was kid. Boxy and smelling like sweaty socks. Those shoes are pretty rad if you’re into Bollywood and it’s totally a DIY- lumber jack boots, marbles (or gumballs, if you don’t mind ants), glue gun and you’re good to go.

PS- I did some research and could not find Xiao Li’s official website, but I did find this precious fluffball! Unless, she’s a fluffy panda bear with mad sewing skillz.

The guy that writes the blog Swallow Glitter made these impressive gloves! It’s definitely like “Edward Scissorhands”, as Outsapop says. It’s like like every piece of broken jewelry  and hardware on a leather glove. And it’s brilliant! I’d wear those gloves if I was roaming a sketchy neighborhood. I’d be flashing my hands like ‘jazz hands‘ to any one suspicious. Which brings me to this story… once I had to go to this beauty store in South Central LA because it was the only shop that carried human hair in my shade of Bozo the Clown red. So, I walk in and the guy behind the counter was spooked and there were 2 cops asking him questions. Already I was like, crap! So, I go in take my merchandise faster than you can say “bitchdonttouchmyweave.” Apparently, a transvestite with a gun  dressed to the nines in broad daylight robbed stole shipments of human hair. The f*uck? No cash, JUST HAIR! HAhahahahaah! I thought that was amusing. Anyway, I’d wear these on my next trip to that beauty store.

Here is an old suit I found at a thrift store years ago. It’s yellow with white teeny tiny polka-dots and it’s a light cotton. Great summer suit. I thought the original buttons were lame, so I glued on candy cabochons to the buttons! They totally livened up the suit! The popsicle pins were originally cupcake toppers ( I ate the cupcakes) that I took and put a pin the back to make a brooch. Since finding shoes to match a yellow suit is a little tough, I took a pair of cheap heels and spray painted them with Simply Spray fabric spray in yellow and then I added ice cream cone cabochons to the bow. Voila! I’m ready for the Willy Wonka tour!

*By the way, sorry for the poor quality photos- I was on the lookout for bedbugs at my hotel in NYC. Seriously!

Above is a vintage Moschino Cheap & Chic dress that is half mannequin and half suit. I wore that for a series of interviews for ‘Machete’. The little mouse pin (moosh!) is actually nibbling on a Chanel symbol. It’s one of my prized possessions.

Below is my outfit for my interviews for Jackass 3D. I decided to take along my Kidrobot buddy, Munny by Tarina Tarantiono. Isn’t he cute!?!  *Excuse my messy messy bed.

Below is an extraordinary bathtub I saw in Soho in NYC. It was in a showroom and is made of little tiny sparkling gold mosaics! The water flows from the top of the heel. That is friggin’ Epic!!! I would not only take a bath in that, but I would move into that tub! I would be the old lady that lived in a shoe and was actually clean!

Anyway, I thought I’d share these random tidbits with you- It’s good to take a break from all the fashion week stuff! Whew!

Here are some stuff I found while cruising the vast void of the internet. Seriously, the more I dig, the more I can’t stop! I need an intervention and Mr. Marmar’s not gonna do it!
-So the first photo is a watermelon cooler/carrier from Japan. I can’t really say much more except that those Japanese never overlook a damn thing! If it were me, I’d ditch the watermelon and put my cat or kid in it on a really hot day. I think they’d appreciate that.
-A lightbulb idea came to Swedish designer Eric Therner (I’ll show my way out)… A lightbulb in the shape of a diamond! Who thought you need a huge chandelier to be all fancy-like when you can just do it with a single bulb? I love when everyday objects are fiddled with for the cooler.
Pinky Diablo ‘s skull spoons are probably just for looking at. But still damn cool! I can see my son persuading me to give him his medicine in that spoon- tricky little boy!
-These Lego Headphones were made by someone who’s crazy about Legos. If you have the time, you too can make them. Follow the link to the instructions, but you’re gonna have to swipe some of your kids’ legos. Good luck with that. I like that you can add blocks whenever and wherever you want. They need to make lego bows.
Voila! Hope that starts your week off right!

Check out this Munchausen LEGO Kitchen! It’s fantastic if you really really love Legos. So, this table is just a regular Ikea table with over 20,000 legos on it. I can just imagine grime getting into the crevices of the legos. It could end up being really gross, especially if you’re making fish or chicken or something. It could be a haven for salmonella. I’m sorry, I have a germ phobia and it’s showing through right now. Ignore me. Anyway, check out the video below to see how its done. If the video was going in real time, it would be like watching grass grow. But, thankfully, they sped it up. This would be a great DIY project for a kid’s room.
