Go Samurai On The Weather With This Umbrella

Last year, I purchased an umbrella at Dollar General out of basic necessity. While inside the store picking up a few odds-and-ends for the place, the rain started falling in sheets. With my car parked too far away from the door to keep me from drowning, I figured, “Why not?” Then I took those first few steps outside and the whole darn thing inverted on me. That’s not something that’s going to happen with the Samurai Umbrella. It comes in a shoulder-mounted scabbard and has a genuine samurai sword grip for a handle. An easy push-button release ensures that you’re Read More

MOUS Shaker Bottle May Be The Last You Ever Need

It would be embarrassing to tell you how many shaker bottles I’ve been through in my herky-jerky, start-and-stop fitness routine. Most of them have only held up to a few uses because, inevitably, I forget to rinse it out when returning home from the gym. Once that happens, it can be difficult ever using it again without a funny (and by funny we mean gross) smell accompanying it. Enter the Mous Shaker Bottle, now available on Kickstarter. Mous uses a round-bottom, modular design that ensures an easy clean. There are no corners for drink mix to build up on, a Read More

Eira Ice Allows You To Play Poker With Snowflakes

Zaid Salman of San Jose, California, sent us the heads-up on his latest Kickstarter project. Considering that it’s about to dump another six inches of snow on us today, and the fact that we often feature cool-looking playing cards on the site, we thought, “What better day to introduce our readers to these Bicycle Eira Ice Playing Cards,” inspired by the beauty of snowflakes? “I’ve always been fascinated with the beauty and symmetry of snowflakes and with the endless variety of shapes they take,” Salman explained. “In the past two years or so, I’ve also gotten interested in playing cards Read More

15 G.I. Joe Action Figures You Probably Forgot

When we set out to honor G.I. Joe on his 50th birthday, we were initially stumped about how to do it. While the 12-inch original is a classic of toy history, the brand enjoyed its highest level of notoriety starting in 1982 when it scaled the figures down to 3 3/4 inches. With a popular comic book, cartoon series, and animated film under its belt, G.I. Joe’s best run was clearly that 1982 to 1994 time period, so we decided to focus on that. However, we didn’t want to do something boring and predictable like “Best G.I. Joe Characters.” It’s Read More
