Have you ever thought about pimping out your car but figured it would just be too expensive? Well fear no more, your car can now make heads turn everywhere you drive without breaking the bank. Infectious.com offers you badass hood pieces, side pieces or just little accents for the weak ranging from just 99 bucks.

And the coolest part about Infectious is it REALLY is awesome art, not just some crappy clipart my friends, I mean super premium grade A badass pieces from artists like Junko Mizuno, Buff Monster, Yumiko Kayukawa, Coop and more. They made the decals fairly easy to install so you should be able to do it with 2 people, a couple hours and no previous experience. And  commitment phobics need not to worry, the decals can come off anytime you want just get a hairdryer and pull it off in strips.

Website: JibJab

leave a comment »

So I think most people remember JibJab as the site that made all those crazy political parodies with all the politicans with huge heads and puppet jaws. Well now I think they still make those movies every once in awhile but one of the coolest things thay have done is taken that technology and given the audience more of a chance to be interactive with it.

So now those crazy shorts and silly cartoons you used to watch on JibJab, you can put yourself and your loved ones into them too! Just to warn though you will either find it rediculously hilarious or just really creepy, but I think there is no way that it won’t get some type of reaction out of you, esp if you cast yourself or anyone you know in Snoop Dogg’s Sexual Seduction video. Its funny but you just feel kind of weird… Anyways to show an example I have included a link to a video starring my dog, fiance, my future mother-in-law, an eyeless stuffed monkey and a small cameo of me screaming. enjoy!

Website: Postcrossing.com

Have you ever wanted a penpal but thought it would take up too much time or figure they wouldn’t write you back? Well postcrossing might be the way for you to connect with people around the world but without the commitment of having to write back and forth. Its sort of the one night stand of pen pal sites if you will… 

The way postcrossing works is that you sign up, (and its totally free btw) request up to 5 addresses at a time, send out postcards to those addresses with a little bit of info about where you are from, put the special ID number on there and you’re done!

Now don’t expect them to write you back because they won’t but you will get postcards from other people around the world at that same time.

Whats one of the coolest features about postcrossing though is you can track it all on their site. Remember that little ID number I told you you have to write on the postcard? well everyone has to do that, so when you recieve a postcard you can register that number in and they will show you a world map of every place you have sent a card and from what places you have recieved. It also opens you up give and recieve more. pretty cool huh? Now go forth and postcross!

Website:Tokyo Street Style

leave a comment »

Ok, so I feel that I am not the only one who feels that the Japanese have a badass sense of style. I get so much fashion inspiration from seeing pictures of the crazy yet genius outfits the girls prowling the streets of Tokyo come up with.

The only problem is there really aren’t that many amazing street style sites out there for the exception of the Vogue’s really lackluster Sartorialist or Nylon’s semi better but still not really impressive street style section. So it is with great pleasure that I introduce for my very first blog post ever!! The Tokyo Street Style website.

This site is a Japanese street style fans dream come true. Its updated weekly with 6 new pics from the five biggest districts of Tokyo, plus hundreds of archives. Whether you are into the lolita style or just something simple and elegant, this site will get your head brimming with ideas.
