I have officially been an “inner looper” for two weeks now and through setting up my new apartment I have come across a few decorating deficiencies with which I figured you blog friends could help out. Gift registries courtesy of BoingBoing, Gizmodo and io9. There’s a wide variety of items and price ranges to chose from, so spend spend spend!
Carved Gourd Lamps: Calabarte’s stunningly intricate lamps come in a variety of styles and sizes. Check out his homepage for more examples his work. Also, seeing as how it’s been just shy of six months since I’ve put up a new header I figured this was as good a time as any to change it up. (Plus it seems appropriately October-y for some reason).
Fancy Pantsy Toothpaste Squeezer: For just the price of around a hundred tubes of toothpaste you too can own this absurdly opulent device intended for the laziest and richest amongst us. Yay dental hygiene!!
*Note—$10.00 tube of Marvis toothpaste not included
Elipson “Sound Tree”: Umm… do I really even need to explain this one?! It’s a tree made of speakers!! Also, feel free to throw in that pair of chairs on the right and we’ll call it a joint housewarming/Christmas present.
“Tree of Life” poster (option 1): It’s a tree trunk made out of ANIMALS!!! Noah would be so happy.
Tree of Life poster (option 2): I mentioned previously how I was lucky enough to catch this movie showing at the Michigan Theater when I was in Ann Arbor this summer and I’m a bit ub-sessed with the movie poster. PRETTY COLORS!!!
Blown-glass Goldfish Bowl: The only pet I’ve had since moving away from Crockett was when I was living in Ann Arbor. My friends Will and Clinton had a guinea pig, Mr. Piggles, that seemed reasonable enough to deal with so I decided to get one, thinking they might become friends as well—they just ended up fighting a lot. At any rate, I decided to give Phineas away after about a year because I wasn’t home enough to spend any quality time with him. A goldfish, though… you don’t even have to pet them! (In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s recommended you don’t do so).
Tsunami Hurricane Capsule: And now perhaps the human equivalent of a fish bowl—a Japanese designed survival pod intended for use in a tsunami but, I’m assuming, perfectly acceptable for hurricane season here in Houston. Plus… it “could hold four adults and had survived many crash tests. It has a lookout window and breathing holes, and could also be used as a toy house for children.”
A. Can’t you see me floating down Richmond in that? B. I LOVE that he removed his shoes before going into the capsule.
