Freak Of The Week: Mobile Messaging

I saw it first from afar. I was rolling up to the local library to snatch some offspring, when, from the far corner of this parking lot a glimmer of pastel painted freakiness shone in the distance: An early model Kia, oh this was gonna be good.  Some all seeing eyes? Even better.  What revealed itself was a DIY doozy of rudimentary images and inspirational,...

Freak Of The Ugen: Denmark’s Mama

Hi guys. Guess where I am? I’ll give you three hints: They are really good at baking things, designing things and drinking beer. They have a reputation of being happy.

Happily for me (and you) we were both going to Trader Joe’s: Pretty hot right? Clean, shiny and oh, so wild! You ain’t seen nothing yet: From the upholstery inserts, to the throw pillow, to...

Freak of the Week: Laker Fan Van

So you think you’re a Laker fan. Really? Why is that? Because you bought a season pass?  You slapped a bumper sticker on your Prius? A vanity plate on your Merc? Or perhaps your ass has a Laker tattoo? Well, this guy laughs at you: When this guy drives down the road, you don’t sit back and wonder what he watches on ESPN. There’s no...
