Music Cage Doesn’T Need a Bird to Chirp Tunes

Remote Controlled Spider Climbs Walls, Ceilings
If I saw this giant creepy spider scurrying across my ceiling in the middle of the night, I’d be on the phone to Orkin faster than you can say “spiderpig”. Now you too can freak the hell out of your significant other with this oversize remote-controlled spider with glowing LED eyeballs.

Decepticon Microcassettes: Where’S Soundwave?

A Little Nintendo Goes a Long Way at Weddings

A Little Nintendo Goes a Long Way at Weddings
It’s easy to overdo themed weddings. But a few simple thematic touches–say, a little Nintendo here and there–can go a long way toward personalizing that special day. I’m not sure about elaborate headgear, but a tiny Mario on a tag, say, like the one at Scott and Allison Shackelford’s wedding?
