One of the many things I have never gotten around to is hosting a Fighting Fish battle to the death tournament. Seriously, I think it would be great, I just do not have enough friends that are interested in such things. Japanese Bug Fights can quench my thirst for tiny destruction until the big day comes.
Honeyshed, it’s like Saturday Morning cartoons for adults who want to shop and waste time. This is by far the most addictive shopping video blog. It’s like scripted infomercials, very well done. The site even has dance interludes between spots featuring their own troop of fly-girls. Start watching now. There is even a cameo of Kool Moe Dee in one of the spots.

Aol launched Asylum.com last week. A new man-fashion, Maxim type of site. The official press release will be in January, so by that time they will have a lot of “we have been around a while” content. Some of the posts link back in years to old defunct blogs. It makes me wonder if they are just buying feeds. Oh wait, Aol owns a ton of shit, they must be filtering. Anyway, here is a story on the site, Homemade Sex Toys. Funny but not in a college Humor way, but they’re trying.
You can spend a lot of money for art and or you can spend a little. Here at the twbe, we like the random search term feature so we thought we would try one on etsy. This one you can even buy.

On his blog, KAWS pointed us to newly opened online gallery/social networking/community site, Heywire Guild & Gallery. Nice Endorsement. The site has a welcoming design feel to it and a search function that gets all cosmic, filtering horoscope signs on top of the normal attributes. Have a look and join the community.

Adidas Originals, is giving you the chance to win a trip to the 2008 Berlin Music Festival. All you have to do is create your own festival. Pick the venue, the bands and promote the show. You get $100,000.00 to create your own Woodstock minus the fires and Fred Durst(what ever happened to that guy). You have to book an entire day and the after party, plus make sure you have enough money for each bands riders. Start typing a band name and the band comes up in the list and you get a brief description and the cost. For example Interpol “the old guard of NYC indy scene….” will cost you $1800.00. If anything else, seeing how much bands charges is worth the time.
The winner of the contest gets tickets accommodations and airfare to the Berlin Festival, good luck.
