FML's Survival Kit #2
Here at FML, we like things. Stuff. Bits and bobs. We like gadgets and buying stuff. We're always looking for the next new thing online that'll make us feel great. Or passable, at least. Buying silly stuff makes us feel better about ourselves, and we like things that make us forget about our shitty lives. Anyway, here's the stuff that we liked this week!
Our team is really into gadgets, games and weird objects. This new column will allow you to find out what sort of things we like, what makes us giggle enough to buy, but will also give you some ideas for gifts, either for yourself or someone special. Check 'em out.
I love these guys
"I'm the kind of guy who likes business, big corporations and people who go out and get things done. People say a lot of bad things about Monsanto, but they know shit about science, what GMOs actually mean for the future of our planet. And I like pissing people off. So I have this t-shirt, and I recommend you get it for yourself, or for your children, because education is important."
"I like apples. Apples. Apples. Apple. Apples. Apples. Apples. Apples. Need more convincing? Apples! Apples! Apples! Apples! Get 'em now! Give them to your friends and family. Apples rule. They keep the doctor away!"
Digging is fun
"This little gizmo is a lot of fun if you like digging, or gardening, or both. If you have kids, they'll enjoy messing about in the garden with it. I know I did. I started digging the swimming pool I've been planning to build in my back yard. At this rate, it'll be done in 2089."
The money cat
"Meow. My owner, or should I say, the human who thinks he owns me, is quite adamant that I should go out and get a job, and that I'm a good for nothing layabout, who only uses him for (the warmth) of his body. So, I chose this cool moneybox, which is not only cute, it's great for the Scrooge-like cat "owner" in your life. So get it now, it's a great gift."
"I'm not really a people person. Most days, my sole means of communication is hissing at people like a feral cat. But I like decorating my apartment, so this mat is so great, I want to make love to it. Hate people turning up unannounced? Get it. Know someone who's a bit of a hermit? Get it for them!"
"Last week I came across like a complete lecherous buffoon, what with my talk of chicks and stuff. So this time, no joking around. This is a mini-album by the might Godspeed You Black Emperor, is so brilliant I buy copies of it for friends and family. If you like your music instrumental and highly emotionally charged, get it. For you, or for the music lover in your life. It's brilliant."
Suck your belly dry
"I'm the kind of guy who is always out and about at festivals, concerts, and various religious congregations. And during all of those, I often feel the need for a beer. I mean, who doesn't? Get this literal beer belly if you or someone who love is teetering on the brink of alcoholism. It's very useful. Especially at work."
That's it for this week. See you next week, same place, same time for some new and cool stuff we've seen floating around the internet!
