• Throw away those Baby Einstein DVDs

    Bam. If you’ve ever had to sit through a modern educational kids movie, you’ve realized they’re garbage. Junk like Diego and Baby Einstein are useless educationally and, in comparison to Looney Tunes and the like, absolute pablum. Now parents won’t feel guilty because little Mason and Kirsten aren’t learning how to say “monito” through video watching. Read More

  • Recycle that old dumpster into a swimming pool

    Got a spare dumpster lying around? The economy’s down, so maybe the average family of four isn’t throwing as much trash away, filling only three American dumpsters per week instead of four. Whatever the case, you can turn that spare dumpster into a lot of gross/awesome stuff. Read More

  • Going Green: How to get rid of your gadgety crap

    I’d be willing to bet that there are very few people out there who don’t have an old Motorola StarTac in a kitchen drawer or a pale, yellowish 14-inch CRT monitor in the basement or a sticky, dusty keyboard under the bed. I’m just like you — probably worse. I have gadgets from the Reagan administration that are serving no good purpose other than to take up space in… Read More

  • VooZoo: Paramount's attempt to sell $1 movie clips. Oh, and alluding to terrorism is a perfectly acceptable way to sell clips, I guess.

    Paramount, the oldest movie studio here, is willing to sell you video clips of its Very Important movies for $1 a pop, minimum. “VooZoo,” which rhymes with “Hulu,” which rhymes with “piece of shit,” is an online service (right now, a Facebook app and on that tries to outdo YouTube by charging you for the privilege of keeping the… Read More

  • Pigboat contest winner: Ryan

    Using my secret aggregation method for picking winners, I chose Ryan as the winner of the nasty PMP. His sad, sad prize is on its merry way. I guess I’m wanting this piece of total shit crap stool poop (to paraphrase Biggs’ March 18th review) more its dramatic destruction and an excuse to borrow some robots than to actually own and use it.
    I will have borrowed 4 of these

  • PX-3000 is a real console but shouldn't be

    [photopress:px_3600_console_2.jpg,full,center] The PX-3000 is a real console that’s based on other real consoles. The PX-3000 also, incidentally, is a piece of garbage. Making the connection, if something that is based on something else is garbage, does that mean the thing it’s based on is garbage? Questions to ponder, friends. px-3600 console fakes xbox, ps2, ps3, wtf? [Technabob] Read More

  • Domplayer can bite me

    Fans of “byte-torrent” “files-sharing” websites like and may have recently experienced a sad, sinking sensation after dedicating hours — if not minutes — to downloading the latest public domain copy of the Jazz Singer or a copy of Gulliver’s Travels (after all, piracy is a crime) — only to… Read More

  • Saving gadgets from the garbage dump and creating art

    If it were up to me, I’d take all of my non-functioning gadgets, excluding my iMac, which I’m about to dump into Long Island Sound (Leopard eats it, I swear), and put them on a boat. Then I’d take this boat out into the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. Then I’d sink the boat halfway. Then I’d cover the water with oil and light it on fire. But not everyone wants to… Read More
