Gentlemen, look at that monkey tail beard and tell me you don’t want one. Everybody wants one, it’s that awesome. Also, that’s the way to get super manly. Hell, some kid could grow chest hair just looking at that beard.

What Roastie Toaster lacks in looks, it makes up in toasting

The quest for the perfect toast is never-ending for many of us, but we do usually settle for a quick, edible toast. Especially when its about the morning rush and time is scarce. Designed by Mateusz Główka, the Roastie Toaster promises to quickly toast the bread to perfection in a comparatively shorter time. The orb shaped toaster is a concept right now, and sadly can only handle one slice at a time, which probably makes its claims of being “quicker” somewhat brittle.

Illustrations on Etch-a-Sketch

Here at Randommization, we’ve always been proud of our artistic skills on an Etch-a-Sketch. Obviously, all that pride was before we came across the Etch-a-Sketch art of George Vlosich, and now we’re busy hiding and erasing all those stupid drawings we made. The artist started off simple, and then moved on to some real complex and classy artwork, all created on the children’s toy. You can imagine the hard work that goes into each of these pieces, considering the artist has to start over if there is a single mistake in the work.

R/c Starcraft 2 tank made from Lego

This Starcraft themed siege tank was built by Marky Mark’s Lego Creations. The lego tank is remote controlled, has four separate motors, two actuators, can drive forward, reverse and turn corners, plus it also can change modes at the touch of a button. Yep, a pretty detailed construction. The crown jewel is of course the transformation from tank mode to artillery mode and back.

Go the F*ck to Sleep: The book for tired parents

Tired parents struggling to get their kids to sleep, this is the book for you. In a perfect world, kids sleep on time, or after you’ve told them some story or rhyme. In the real world, that almost never happens, and the tired parent struggles to get the kids to sleep. Written by Adam Mansbach, the book obviously isn’t for kids, but for parents whose feeling it does bring out with heaps of profanities. Costs $9. Here’s a simple verse from the book:
The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear
Please go the fuck to sleep.

Pothole art: Decorating potholes as planters

We can have our differences, but everyone stands united in the hatred of potholes. Those ugly ruins of urban decay take the fun out of driving and spoil the car. Artist Pete Dungey sees a chance of expression in these dismal potholes, using potholes around London as planters. The artist plants flowers and grasses to highlight the problems and plights of the road, creating an interesting setting to go along. This also reminds us of artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera’s repairing of Parisian streets with knitted yarn.
