Kings of Leon x Barking Irons T-Shirts

Barking Irons, one of my favorite producers of high quality design t-shirts, has these Kings of Leon prints available for sale. Look good while supporting some good 'ol Southern Rock 'n Roll.

Available here for $25 and $35, respectively. That's a good deal.

Star Wars x Medicom Toy Boba Fett Kubrick Collection

I am alerting all four of you who still read this blog that there are new Boba Fett minis from Medicom and Star Wars coming out. They are mini. They are Boba Fett. Or at least they are supposed to be Boba Fett. I'm a fairly rabid purist when it comes to my Star Wars, and I'm pretty sure Boba Fett never had a cattle prod or purple armor. Whatever. It has been a horribly slow week and I'm basically just going through the motions.

The only one who looks like Boba Fett is the one on the right above here. I'm getting more and more perturbed by these imposters as we go along. I am a pretty big fan of creative license, but I mean come on, these fuckers look like storm troopers, not the last of the mighty Mandalorian Warriors, Boba Fett, Greatest Bounty Hunter Alive!

NYPD Nissan Altima Hybrid Patrol Cars Spotted in the Wild

So I guess the announcement was made in April or something, but here's a pic of the new 35-mpg NYPD patrol car. Yup, that's an Altima. $1500 more per car, 19 mpg more on city streets, looks like something the cops in Luxembourg might drive.
