Ad: Playboy

When I think of Playboy and Hugh Hefner, the first thing that comes to mind isn't hairstyles (am I wrong). However they do make a compelling argument, in this ad campaign, as to why some people might. Honestly, they might be on to something here, have a look.

Glowdoggie

Before anyone starts complaining (since there are only about a dozen people that view this site, doubt there will be any complaints) but just in case someone does feel like complaining (saying that this article doesn't fall into the BL*EEN scope of reference) well too bad. No seriously I can do whatever I want, there is no democracy here, this is the inter-web, where I rule this domain. However since I'm such a swell guy, and my ego hasn't gone to my head (just disregard the last sentence or two), I'll be posting two, yes that's right, I said two article this week, so that the dozen or so of you out there don't feel cheated. And now on to the real article... Now what's cool about the Glowdoggie, besides being able to see where your dog is going when it gets dark (which for us here in Vancouver during the winter consists of 18+ hours of darkness a day) is that they actually have a dedicated website for both Canadians and Americans (Thumbs Up!).  Now

The Kikajou

What exactly is the Kinkajou? Rather then have me explain it, why not listen to the inventor... The Kinkajou comes in four colours and the basic kit ells for $49.99(US) , but if you definitely want one for this Christmas, you may want to consider paying the extra pre-ship $15.00(US) fee.

'En Guarde' Geeks

As if anyone uses rulers in school today, that is unless your in some art/design class, which isn't really doing anything for your social status. But, hey if you're gonna be a geek, you might as well embellish it, so to you I say 'en guarde'. Made by Pale Horse Design , the Machete Ruler will set you back about $20(US).

Road Bike Party

I really respect those road bike riders, but you can't exactly say they ooze radness. Well moulds were made to be broken, I suppose. And pictured above is Martyn Ashton, who is definitely breaking the mould with his extreme road bike riding. Via - The Awesomer

Need A Fix?

Missing your Mass-IMO fix today? Well there's more of this same great content over at BL*EEN , why not check it out every Wednesday.

Android Watch

With the android mascot graphics gracing the front, and with two straps (as pictured above) the Android Watch from Google, really embellishes the BL*EEN culture. Chip in an extra $12(US) for the optional green strap, and well, HAPPY DAYZ! However, unlike many of the watches I've showcased in the past, the Android Watch is somewhat affordable. That is if you can muster up $59.95(US) and live in the US. Now as I quickly found out while trying to purchase one of these for myself, the cost of shipping to my location in Vancouver, Canada cost more than the watch itself, a staggering $77.80(US) by ground and $210.79(US) expedited. WTF! So a watch that really should only cost about $25 will end up costing $140-$275. Google please, I don't mind paying a slight premium for the android graphics, but that's ridiculous. If money is no object and you simply must have this watch set, then follow this link .  As for myself, unless someone wants to gift me one, I'll simply hav

Ad: Off-Center

Here's another ad campaign that strongly emphasises my earlier comments, that today's advertisers are getting far more raunchier. Maybe I'm completely wrong about this, maybe I'm just too sensitive, or maybe I'm succumbing to the political correctness, brainwashing propaganda. Hmmm, anyway check out the rest of this ad from Gyro . Via - I Believe in Advertising
