Bomb the unicorns!

IMAGE: Dog dressed as unicornHere's a little game for all you unicorn haters out there!

Do you hate unicorns? If so, do you feel yourself being pushed to the margins of society? Driven underground because of your anti-unicorn views?

Well, why not take out your frustration with this little game, and blow them pesky unicorns to kingdom come!

Okay. This game isn't too 'wonderful' but it certainly is 'weird'.
If you can't stand the sight of cartoon blood and gore, or the sight of unicorns being blown to bits, then do not play this game.
(Note: No actual unicorns were harmed in the making of this game.)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Poodles!

Yes, seeing is believing! Teenage Mutant Ninja Poodles DO EXIST!
This picture is great. I found it on (the scarily titled) a while back, but can no longer find it on there. But there are other weird and wonderful poodle pics that can be seen there, some of which I have used below.

I wonder if the dog is glad to at least be something cool like a ninja for a change. Beats being sprayed pink. Even gets to wear a cool bandanna instead of a pink ribbon bow.

At first he thought he looked stupid, until he saw this guy (below) coming out of the grooming room.

Dog wears heart on sleeve, back, head and legs!

Yes that IS hearts all over the poor mutt.
Nothing says 'I love you' like your husband/boyfriend saying:

"Ere luv, I've painted the dog for ya. Now ya can't say I never show you affection! Oh yeah, and that paint we bought for the girl's bedroom ... we probably need some more."

Of course these designs are not just done because the owners are nutjobs. These extreme makeovers are usually for competitions and not just for everyday grooming.
You have to admit, a lot of work goes into some of these designs. All the shaping and the shaving, and then of course the colouring. The designers are basically sculptors.

Even though these poodles and their nutty designs are not really my thing. If I had to pick one, then this one below would be it. Those are pretty well sculptured heart shapes. Haha.

The dog's giving you a look like:

"Hearts?! Hearts?! Whayamean f#@king hearts? These are muscles dude!".

Haha. Yeah, whatever pooch.

Modern/Retro USB Mixtape

Are you someone that loves gadgets and the modern world, but still consider yourself old skool?
If so then this little gadget should be 'right up your street'.

It's a well known tradition, for courting couples to make loving compilations of tunes. Referred to by some as 'mix tapes', (although there is rarely any actual mixing, as in proper Hip Hop mix tapes).
The 'mix' in lover's mix tapes usually just means a mixture of tunes. Each track carefully selected, to ensure that personal message.

'Back in the day' we would throw some tunes onto a C60 cassette tape for 60 minutes of smoosh.
These days, the majority of people (with a computer) will probably burn a personal CD for their loved one.

Well, now you can have the best of both modern and retro worlds. You get to create your 'mix tape' using modern technology while giving it an old skool presentation.

IMAGE: Mix Tape USB Stick packageThis is the "Mix Tape USB Stick" from Suck UK.
It comprises of a 64MB USB stick, to record your 'lurve choons' on to. Which is just about enough for it to hold roughly 60 minutes of music.

The retro part is the packaging. The USB stick sits inside a C60 cassette tape and the packaging has an authentic lined 'index card' style outer cover, to list the tracks or write personal messages.
