Wonder Woman gets real… bitter

Post Turkey Pixar

Unless you’re some kind of super villain, you’re probably a fan of Pixar films.  Even those two about talking cars (really?  talking cars, you say?) turned out pretty darn good.

Feast your eyes upon their newest offering, BRAVE.

(Ok, super villains.  Yes, we’ve seen this storyline before.  Girl is supposed to be, well, lady-like.  Ends up proving that it’s ok to be different by saving the village, or her father, or a child or something.  Quit overanalyzing it and enjoy the ride!)

Awesome Inventions of Yesteryear (part 4)

Goodyear Light-Up Wheels

The awesomeness continues with the Goodyear light-up tire!

Ladies, never again do you have to guess if you have a run in your nylons.  Gentlemen, you’ll always be sure that your shoes are tied.

Seriously, this kind of puts those under car neon lights to shame.

Ingenuity, folks!

Mario takes over Times Square

WARNING: This post is not for bitter old curmudgeons who long ago abandoned the idea of acting like a kid in public or showing any signs of joy.

For the rest of you… Times Square got a Super Mario make-over!!!  Check out the video and drool in jealousy bouncy trampolines, warp pipes, ? boxes and a quick cameo by Link!

It’s awesome when giant, faceless and amoral companies throw an event like this.  We’ve been seeing a lot of these viral marketing campaigns lately – and loving them!!!

Yes, curmudgeons, it’s marketing.  But it’s fun too!

Awesome Inventions of Yesteryear (part 3)

Cigarette holder with little umbrella covering the ember

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more kookie, the 1950’s bring us the Rainy Day Cigarette Holder!

The little umbrella is, let’s face it, adorable.  But wouldn’t it make more sense to just get yourself an umbrella (full-sized human umbrella) and smoke under that?  Don’t get me wrong, the guy in the pic looks super happy getting rained on.  Oh, and that happy gentleman is Robert L. Stern, president of Zues Corp.  I wonder what other technological marvels Zues Corp unleashed on the public?

Ingenuity, folks!

Awesome Inventions of Yesteryear (part 1)

Black n White Baby Cage - spooky

There have been a lot of truly foolish inventions since the dawn of man.  But none so loco as the baby cage.

As the name implies, the device is a cage.  For a baby.  Developed in 1937 for the members of the “Chelsea Boy Club,” the baby cage allowed apartment bound mothers to dangle their fragile children from windows for some fresh air.

Where are the follow-up interviews?  With the babies.  Those kids must have developed some serious trust issues.

Ingenuity, folks!
