Cynical Monday

on
I still haven’t recovered from losing that hour of sleep last week. There is just something about waking up in the morning and it is just as dark as it was when you went to bed. Not to mention that my feline overlords are getting me up an hour early looking for food and company. […] [Read More]

Wallter provides for a mixed bag of wooden shapes that you can mix and match, […] [Read More]

Curves to compliment your iPod

on
The Good Doctor was doing a bit of online shopping over the weekend and he forwarded on these amazing, unconventional speakers for your iPod.
