Wunzees goin live….

So there is alot going on right now in my lil world of onesies.

1. Im just about ready to order a new batch of blanks…and I think i’m going to try a new vendor and go organic.  Organic is in right now…and I dont see it going away, so maybe it will open my base of buyers if I appeal to the masses.

2.  We are about to rebrand Wunzees was a great start to a shop on Etsy, but what happens after I start doing things other than onesies?  I mean, I’ve already ventured out into the world of bibs, and soon hopefully baby blankets are in the works.  Wunzees stops making sense.  I am in the preliminary stages of starting my new blog.  I need to get a host, and learn CSS, or just steal borrow someones template.  I Mick bought a domain.  Wait for it….”The Little Goat”.  Get it? Who doesn’t love goats, and a little goat is a kid!  I can not take credit for this…though I will exploit it for all its worth.  When the time comes, don’t forget to add thelittlegoat.com to your blogroll…though its nothing right now.

3. Wunzees are going to be on the internet (beyond Etsy)…maybe TV, and if you live in Atlanta, you can see it too! I answered a profnet, from a woman who was looking for trendy gifts from Etsy to feature on her show, and she responded!  Yay PR….So…It will be on the 11Alive News, in Atlanta, GA at 7:50 am on Saturday. WXIA-TV Its the NBC affiliate!  Pretty cool huh?

I will be featuring the Lil Gentleman Series.

The tie as well as the new mustache bib.

Stay tuned for more exciting things to come with The Little Goat.


western spaghetti

So through my internet trolling yesterday, I came across this guy’s stop motion videos.  PES film.  It looks like he does a lot of commercials, for Coin Star as well as Scrabble in particular. I highly recommend you peruse his YouTube channel. This non-commercial, entitled “Western Spaghetti” was my favorite that I saw yesterday.  My personal favorite part of his videos, is the use of candy corn for fire.

Stop motion animation requires a ton of patience. Thats all i can say. I dont know if I could pull it off.

so good i had to blog it again…

Seriously….I dont have anything else to say other than you should read this shit.  Its funny.

Below is the complete email conversation that Adelaide man David Thorne claims he had with a utility company chasing payment of an overdue bill.

know anyone with a good record collection?

Because I want to get in on this photo shoot!

This blog has pictures submitted with people taking pictures using their vinyl covers and incorporating themselves into the shot.  Its pretty much genius.  Oh Sleeveface.…another case of “why didn’t I think of that first?”

bacon themed road trip

We didnt plan it to be that way.  It just happened.  Mick and I left on Saturday morning, and started driving north, goal for the day to reach Portland.  It started with the rental.  We had to rent a Ford Explorer due to the size of the cargo we were delivering to Seattle the following day.

We first noticed the button on the dash.  We referred to it as the bacon button.  Come to think of it, I dont think we ever pushed it.  We just touched it on occasion.  It looked like this:

Then came the picture Mick took in the restroom at the 1st rest stop we came to.  He came out of the bathroom, and showed me the picture.

Its a pretty bad photo, but if you look close enough, you can see it demonstrates.

In the top frame, if you push the button.  In the bottom frame you will recieve bacon.

Then, as we were driving, we kept on seeing the bacon signs.  Every time we saw the sign, we touched the bacon button in the car, because really, what else was it for.  The sign looked like this.  I took pictures on my iPhone, but they aren’t sending right.  Again, can you see the bacon?

And to top off Day 1 of our whirlwind trip to Seattle and back, we landed in Portland.  Crashed immediately.

Woke up for breakfast for Day 2, and of course had to try the famous VooDoo Doughnut, Maple Bacon Donut.  Seriously, everything is so much better with bacon.  It tasted like french toast smothered in syrup, and you accidentally (or on purpose) left your bacon on the plate.

Damn i’m hungry

now you see him

or do you?

Chinese artist Liu Bolin paints people to blend in with their surroundings. Its pretty crazy.  In this one below in particular, I have a hard time grasping the fact that he almost looks translucent.

There is more written about him here, but I think that my favorite line that he says sums up his reasoning behind his work.  “In the environment of emphasizing cultural heritage, concealment is actually no place to hide.”

electronics can be kosher?

Who knew?  I am a week or so behind in reposting this link, but I was reminded about this article my friend Sammy directed me to.  She too is a Jew, so she thought I’d appreciate the humor.

An article on BBC News asks the question, “Is that cellphone kosher?”  Apparently, the kosher cell phones are just phones without access to any of the good stuff, but all I can picture is the rabbi in the factory, giving all of them a blessing….next to the salt.

The kosher cellphone looks like an ordinary cellphone, can make and receive calls, and may have a calculator and alarm clock.

Phone with the stamp saying Approved by the Committee of Rabbis for Communication Affairs

One of the defining features of kosher mobiles is a rabbinical stamp

But it cannot send or receive text messages, browse the internet or take photos – all activities that could potentially involve behaviour considered “immodest” among Haredis.

For example, SMS capability could lead to the unwitting receipt of mass text messages publicising secular events. It could also be used as a method of illicit communication between male and female teenagers.

And all photos of women are forbidden, as is accessing websites with content deemed inappropriate.

The phone’s other defining feature is a rabbinical stamp of approval, similar to those seen on kosher food items.

Ill say it.  Sometimes, I wonder….
