DOLLHOUSE NEWS: Barbie just find out Ken is gay!!

Seeing all the creative interpretations of a modern day Barbie and Ken relationship over the past few years has been just as much fun as playing with those dolls when I was a little kid. We’ve written about Barbie dealing with relevant issues like teen pregnancy, drugs, binge drinking and sex. We’ve even written about Barbie as a serial killer. Since it’s always done in a sarcastic kind of way, it’s been great fun to write those articles.
One thing we haven’t touched on is what it would be like if Barbie found out that Ken was gay. Hey, it happens, right? Besides, Ken always seemed kind of gay to me anyway. Photographer Dina Goldstein decided to take this project on, and I couldn’t image it done any better.
She used real models which she then Photoshopped and put into what seems like a real Barbie dreamhouse (hey, I used to have one of those!). On her website, Dina wrote, “… partner K is grappling with his sexuality and finds himself in a loveless marriage. He struggles with his position in the household and faces his lack of authenticity.” Barbie, don’t cut all your hair off and cry, you’ll fall in love again. Just get yourself a Facebook account and find another man. There are plenty of fish in the sea. You can learn more about Dina and see some great behind the scenes footage on her website. I heard there is even a new web series called Life In The Dreamhouse. I guess people really can’t get enough of Barbie.   



A futuristic Underwater Nightclub

I received an unusual request the other day from a reader of this blog that I'd like to share with you..We read each and everyone of our emails to find and post stories you'd find most interesting.

Last week, one of our readers named Rita sent us a video clip that she found when she was surfing the web. It’s so unconventional yet interesting and quite futuristic that I had to share it with you. It’s really brilliant what the creators of this were able to fit into a one minute and fourteen second video.

This is a promo for an underwater nightclub in NYC that doesn’t really exist (although the technology is available so it could exist). It is part of an ad campaign created by Thinkmodo for TechnoMarine watches. Yup, this is to promote an underwater watch. You’ll see the little TechnoMarine logo in various places in this video (like on the cups they are drinking from and in the lights on the walls). If you click over to Social Times, you can read a fascinating article with a short interview about how they made this. It took three days, and so for three days this place really existed. My only question is, how would you go to the bathroom in a nightclub like this?

Unisex Bikini Jeans

Do you like to show off your body? Well  there's a new trend this summer promising to rival any other trend you've ever experience in your lifetime. I'm not a trendy kinda guy but this one trend definitely caught my attention just like my skateboarding era.

Unlike my skateboarding days I won't be pursuing this one anytime soon, and that is the Bikini Jeans that are becoming increasingly (depending on how you look at it) popular since 2009. It is exactly what you think it is… or maybe anyway. It’s basically a pair of really low cut jeans with jeans bikini bottoms (or tangas) attached to them. Yeah, it sounds a little dodgy, doesn’t it? Well, there are people out there who really love this kind of weirdness

I'm told the Bikini Jeans are the perfect beachwear if you want to sport the denim but not pull on the full pair of jeans you bought for winter. Maybe this is something created for voyeuristic types who enjoy the attention the Bikini Jeans will generate. Maybe they will go well with our last post  ThingThong. What do you think?

Thing-Thong: Emergency swimwear for men

The human mind is amazing!! I just witness one of the weirdest and most awesome product creation of the human mind. It’s quite funny really since the most unearthly products usually get the best traction. It’s like all of us are screaming for something different. Maybe we are all bored to death with the ordinary and everyday products that we pretty much know all about before they are even launched. This posting is about something that I know you wouldn’t have guessed would become a “product”, at least not in this century..

Introducing: The Thing-Thong, a new type of emergency swimwear for men. It’s designed by mind traveler Douglas Hamilton, and it is one of those creations that will have you laughing your heart out. If you’ve ever gotten down to the beach and then realized you forgot your swimming trunks, you know how completely useless the beach can be. But with these "MacGyver" flip-flops, you now don’t have to worry about that anymore.

Just slip one of them on and go swimming. You can have the other one as spare or lend it to one of your friends. It will cover your privates and cover a minimal amount of skin in order for you to get the “perfect” tan. Your manhood is not included with this thing unfortunately. Next time you find yourself in a serious loss of swimwear, just pull these up and you’ll be included in the fun again. Well, actually, I think you will BE the fun at the beach for all your friends. At least you will have a good story to tell later on, right? And besides, if you are not the one getting the most attention on the beach, you must clearly be at the wrong one.
