The Burrito Blanket Looks Like a Giant Tortilla

The Burrito Blanket Looks Like a Giant Tortilla
Do you like burritos? So do I. So it’s no wonder that this burrito-inspired blanket is making my mouth water. It looks just like the delicious, slightly charred dough from a flour tortilla, but human-sized. I’ve been to a place that sells burritos as big as your head, but never ones this big. While you or your kids can fit inside of these, I don’t recommend trying to take a bite, nor do I suggest slathering the inside of the blanket (or your family members) with beans, rice, sour cream, cheese, guacamole, pico de gallo, and grilled meat.

Here Comes the Kool-Aid Man Funko POP! Figure!
A while back we found out that Funko was readying a new POP! figure based on the iconic Kool-Aid Man, but all we had was a terrible placeholder illustration of the character. Now, the actual figure is starting to turn up, and it looks awesome. The rotund kids’ drink mascot is perfect in Funko POP!

This Scrap Metal Skull Sculpture Is Making Me Nuts

This Scrap Metal Skull Sculpture Is Making Me Nuts
There’s something about skull art that I find really intriguing. Perhaps it’s that skulls are something that all of us have in common, or it’s just that they remind us of our mortality. I’m really digging this skull sculpture, made from recycled bits of metal. It was made by the guys at Thailand-based Metal Model House, using scrap metal and a whole boatload of nuts welded together to create its main form.

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick

Darth Vader vs. Aliens Would Be an Awesome Flick
Some of the recent Star Wars movies haven’t been my favorites, and at times they’ve been downright boring to me. I tell you what wouldn’t be boring – a movie that had Vader and some stormtroopers fighting against xenomorphs.

Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka Mug: That’s One Angry Mug
If you ever played any of the Crash Bandicoot games, you’re familiar with the masks that float around the game. The one that offers you help and makes that great “rutabaga” sound effect is called “Aku Aku,” while the bad guy boss is called “Uka Uka.”

WiiVision Is the Nintendo Wii Handheld of Our Dreams

WiiVision Is the Nintendo Wii Handheld of Our Dreams
