Micky Mouse 1000% Be@rbrick

Kill me now.  As you’ve noticed, I am a toy collector. I love them. This 28 inch piece of plastic has me wide eyed and feindin’!  In my collection I have only about 10, 50% Be@rbricks. So naturally owning this 1000% would be dope as shit and I would be a happy little Jennifer and blahblahblah so on and so on.  This Medicom Micky Mouse one will run you about $450 at Kidrobot.

Email me at jfarrist@gmail.com for my shipping address if you are so inclined to hook it up.

Halo Light – Graffiti Made Easy.

haloI’ve never been a graffiti head like some of my friends or family, I think it’s an under appreciated art form, but that’s where my knowledge and appreciation cuts off. For those street art lovers and graffiti heads out there, French designer Aissa Logerot has created this Halo light for graffiti artists who want to use light and long shutter photography instead of aerosol. The can is shaped just like a can of spray paint but features an LED light where the paint would come out. You can change the color and intensity at the other end, and once it runs out of battery power you can actually shake it up to regain power.

Pictures and examples under the hood:

The Magical Folding Bike.

drawingstudiobikeI posted this on my other blog, the one where I try really hard to make myself sound a bit cultured, and since this bike isn’t in production and even if it was I probably wouldn’t be able to afford it, it only seemed right for it to be posted here.

This bike doesn’t have a name, but in my mind it’s called “The Magical Folding Bike” because it is indeed a product of magic. On my quest to find the perfect bike, I’ve come across many variations of color and price, with tricked out features I have no time for. So after coming in contact with this perfecting crafted bike, I fell in love. It was created by 24 year old Dominic Hargreaves after his beloved bike collapsed. The bike can be folded into the span of the wheel and can fit in any nook or cranny making it space efficient. Word is, Dominic is in talks to have the bike mass produced sometime in the next year. One can only hope…

Ping Pong Table.

tobiasfraenzel-ping-pong-door-600x431No this is no normal ping pong table my friends. This gem doubles as an actual DOOR. Yes, it probably would an eyesore from all the fabulous things I have in my house right now (cough), but how amazing would it be to just wake up one day and play a round of ping pong with your roommate out of the blue? Totally RAD!

It would probably be nice to play beer pong on as well…no?

Adobe Photoshop CS4

Ok, so as a creative soul I’ve been fiening to buy Photoshop for the necessary creative endeavors. You know, to design for my blog and what not, but really I’d just like to play with it for awhile. I go to an art school where everyone has and uses this software so it seems odd and out of place that I myself have to rely on make shift outlets to manipulate photos. Seems like everyone, their mother, and potential child already have Photoshop or InDesign or Illustrator, and I have no idea where to get it…for free or at a much cheaper price than the $600 I’ve been seeing it at on the regular. If only I had a Fairy Godmother to ask for these essential life changing purchases, but alas I do not. Now whats a girl to do? Sell her soul and maybe her Louis Vuitton? Can someone please inform me where in the heck I can purchase or rather get this from someone? Please, the pain of not having it is killing me rather softly over here.

Kidrobot Smorkin’ Labbit Stool

I have needed this since the first colour way of white was release in 2007.  In 2008 Kidrobot released a powder blue chair, and here we are in ’09 with the pink Labbit Stool. I don’t even like the colour pink. Something about this particular one has got me feelin it more than the other two colour ways.  I mean the piece is limited. I’m pretty sure the production numbers on this can’t be more than 50-100. It’s a smorking rabbit (or labbit to certain ethnicites). It’s by Frank Kozik. It’s a piece of art AND furniture. Downside, I can’t afford it.  It’s  $1,250.00, I wonder if I can hit up Paulie Paul for a serious barter session.

Anyone out there who is willing to give to the needy and not the greedy, please email me at jfarrist@gmail.com for my shipping address.

Wow, by me saying that I’m in need of this makes me sound all kinds of fucked up. Meh. Let the truth be known! I need it.

Alex & Chloe – Holding You Forever Wedding Rings

A&C Wedding Rings

These make me want to tie the knot, maybe. Alex & Chloe create the most inventive and interesting jewelry. Bijules NYC is another favorite of mine, but while it seems like they create items with similar themes, Alex & Chloe are always pusing the limits of design. The price tag on this set of his & her rings is the price of a quarter of my classes, a whooping $3,500 on Forward by Revolve. If you have change to drop like that, then you should also email me to pay for my tuition. Just sayin’…
