Black and white is a thing of the past. If TV stuck to black and white how would we see the shade of the Jersey Shore kids’ fake tans? If print news never came in color, the Funny Pages would seem a lot less funny. See?
Even Oreos have started dabbling in hues to the classically white crème filling–as long as it remains delicious, we‘re for it. So with everything being upgraded to color, why are most headphones only offered in the typical black or the standard-iPod white? Come on. You’re better than that. Karmaloop.com knows that and is offering a line of Urbanear Headphones in two different styles: The Tanto and The Plattan and more colors than a Crayola box: light blue, navy, purple, pink, yellow, chocolate, army, salad… You get the picture. The headphone are compatible with any and all mp3 players, and come equipped with a mic and remote compatibility with your iPhone, Blackberry, HTC, and/or Nokia. The Urbanear Headphones can be found for $40 to $60 and you can pick up a pair here.
No, this isn’t a bed specifically designed for you to eat chili in, though that’d interesting as well. The ChiliBed is for anyone who’s felt that the other side of the pillow was either too cool or not cool enough.
For those that have spent a night trying to fall asleep on what feels like a hot skillet, or tossing and turning like you’re on a Cold Stone tablet. It’s hard to fall asleep when you’re either too hot or too cold. The inventor behind the ChiliBed, Todd Youngblood, realized this, and luckily came from a long line of bed innovators. His answer was a mattress that heats and cools its coils with water and keeps you sleeping in the temperature just right for you. And if you have a partner shacking up next to you and you differ largely on what temperature sleep-time should be, as men and women so often do, the dual ChiliPad allows you to customize either side of the mattress to each bed partner’s liking. So that saves you an argument right there. The makers of the ChiliBed also point out that using their product will help you cut down air conditioning costs quite a bit. And to top it all, the ChiliBed is environmentally friendly, made of 100% soy (which we were not aware was remotely possible either). Get yours here.
You gotta love your lady every day. Yeah, thought you might need a friendly reminder from your friends at Made Mail. We’ve got something for you that just might work, especially if your special lady friend is a tad on the geeky side.
Roses, chocolates, jewelry are all fine and dandy, but those are clearly last ditch efforts by bad boyfriends who forgot Sunday and had no time to think outside the box. Here’s a gift that is original and cute enough to at least win you some points with the girl: the Locked On Proximity Sensing Shirt. The shirts should be purchased as a pair – a male and a female most typically, but it will work with same genders in case you’re involved in a bromance or two. The sensor decals on the shirts will stay quiet… Until the person wearing the other shirt in the pair gets within a few meters of you. The radar on the two shirts will suddenly lock and detect one another, lighting up. How about that? A shirt that detects when your soul mate is near. You and your girl can wow your friends, or make them barf, of which either may be your intention, both outcomes satisfactory. You can buy the shirts as a pair for $40.00 here.

What if we told you that right now you could purchase exact replicas of any of Indiana Jones’ accessories, which would you pick? You said the hat, didn’t you? Okay, let’s face it, this day and age it’s hard to pull it off.
The brown fedora doesn’t work if you’re not a sexy archaeologist/professor circa World War II (even Indy himself wasn’t wearing it as well come the time of the Cold War, crystal E.T skulls, and CGI monkeys). So what’s it going to be? The whip? Honestly, what could you possibly do with a whip besides hurt yourself? It’s his boots, okay? You can buy his boots. And you should because they are awesome. Offered by J.Crew via century-old custom shoemaker Alden, each pair is delicately hand-crafted leather with moc stitching around the toe and a stained welt, perfect for outrunning gigantic boulders, traversing rickety rope bridges over gator-infested ravines, and kicking Nazis in the face. Be warned, though: there is a limited supply and they will probably go fast. Each pair is $450.00, so you may have to steal a golden idol or two and throw them up on eBay to afford it, but it will certainly be worth it when you’re confronted with an adventure and finally have the footwear for it. Check them out here.
So you need to cover up your macBook or macBook Pro. For a few reasons. One, you just know at some point you’re going to drop that thing on the ground shattering it into a million tiny pieces.
Or your water bottle in your bag is going to spill all over it, short-circuiting the thing. Or some jerk hits it with a hammer. There’s no telling what can happen. Also, if you’re traveling with it and leave it in your car for a potty break, as soon as the wrong person sees that famous Apple logo, it’s as good as gone. You need some insurance. How about a disguise that protects your laptop from all the aforementioned dangers AND looks damn cool doing it? The BookBook is what you’ve been looking for. The hardback leather case and padded interior work perfectly for absorbing hard blows, like the aforementioned uncalled for hammer, or the water looking to drown your baby. And besides that, it looks like an ancient important book of spells or something. And, no two BookBook are alike. Each one is hand crafted so you will for sure stand out. The BookBook comes in Classic Black or Vibrant Red and goes for $79.99. You can purchase one here.
One of life’s greatest luxuries is drifting off to sleep to some of your favorite relaxing music. But there are a few problems. Number one, you can wake up with ears sore from laying your head on cumbersome headphones for eight hours.
Number two, you might not wake up at all if you manage to strangle yourself with the headphone wire. And thirdly, if you have somebody sleeping next to you, it might unfairly keep them awake, especially if your music of choice is Slipknot or something equally outrageously obnoxious for some reason. Here’s your solution: the Sound Asleep Pillows. These pillows actually have the speaker deep inside of them, and though you’re probably thinking that sounds about as comfortable as resting your head on a bowling ball, the speaker is completely unnoticeable. A removable wire allows you to hook up your mp3 player before you to go to bed and sleep unbothered by wires and headphones. And the pillow is designed to specifically keep your music from annoying a partner in the bed next to you. You can buy the original pillow, or the memory foam pillow. Both are designed for head and neck support. You can find both of them here.
Have you ever been out at a club or bar where the hired DJ seems to have no sense of what people want to hear whatsoever and thought to yourself “I could do a lot better than DJ Douchebag up there; maybe I should practice some DJing skills?”
But all that equipment is so expensive (and heavy) and you need to start from scratch (DJ-pun intended) on your vinyl collection since all you have are your Raffi ones from when you were a kid, and unless the club wants to bump to your “Baby Beluga” remix, then you’re out of luck. Looks like it’s just not meant to be. Wait! It totally is meant to be! Did you think we were just e-mailing you to tell you NOT to be a DJ? Because with the cheap and light Discovery DJ Decks you plug directly into your computer, anything is possible. You have your entire digital library at your disposal with the click of a button. And, if you’re a new hand at this, it even comes with software that automatically matches tempos for seamless transitions between songs. Realistic scratch pads allow for impeccable scratch effects. And you can plug it right into your USB port–now extra power source needed. The Discovery DJ Decks goes for around $160 and can be found here.
