There and back again: Boilr returns (kinda)

I’ve not had the time, and if I’m going to be entirely honest, interest, in posting to my oldest blog. In fact, this is the first post of 2013.
To make the site more appealing to it’s ~75 daily average readers (drastically down from its peak of ~560 dailies in 2011) and to inspire myself …

Star Wars: The Phantom Adidas Originals Collection

Generally speaking, I’m not a big shoe person. I often forgo “style” for the sake of comfort, and tend to wear shoes until they are worn through. Nonetheless, after a friend informed me of a new series of Star Wars-themed Adidas Originals sneakers and apparel, I couldn’t help but share some of my favorite shoes …

The Obamas: Now available as Russian nesting dolls!?

Get your (officially licensed) creativity on with Zazzle

First, there was CafePress – a do-it-yourself web shop which allows store “owners” to create custom goods and apparel. CP is mostly centered around maintaining an actual webfront, which, at the end of the day, is not for everyone.
Now, there is Zazzle (its def. not new, but I’ve never covered it here) – another …

Shirt of the Day: Flight of the Conchords Attendance
