Karyu’s ESP Guitar

November 16, 2008 at 11:17 am ($Expensive!)

Karyu, guitarist for Japanese rock band D’espairs Ray, finally has a signature edition guitar from my favorite company, ESP. I saw it when they toured the U.S. a year ago and fell in love with it. It was custom built meaning if i wanted it, i’d have to spend somewhere around $6,000 to one built for me.

Now that ESP has formally released an exact copy of his guitar for everyone to purchase, it will only cost me 588,000 Yen, or approximately $6,000.

Hellraiser

June 7, 2008 at 10:13 am ($Expensive!, >$100, Toys)

In my opinion (and that’s what really counts, right?), Hellraiser by Clive Barker ranks as one of the most stylish horror movies ever made. The most famous star aside from Pinhead was the Lemarchand Configuration, or The Box. Open the box and you’ll be rewarded with all your filthy little desires. You also get screwed too. Big time. But isn’t that what life is all about?

Handmade from etched brass and mahogany wood.

The box itself is partially automated and it quite impressive to see in action. You can view the video of it being opened here.

My New Ride (Is Not Your Mother)

May 1, 2008 at 7:16 am ($Expensive!)

I’ve always wanted a BMW M1 ever since i saw one when i was little back in the 80’s. In honor of its 30th anniversary, the Germans have released an updated concept version of it… the M1. Original, i know.

The color, “Liquid Orange” was custom designed for the car. Overall, i’d like to stick a giant popsicle stick up its rear end and lick it for hours.

That’s what she said.

Rich and Crazy

April 10, 2008 at 1:47 pm ($Expensive!, >$100, Not For Sale)

Mix designer Diddo Velema, some gas masks and a lot of alone time and you come out with these things. Made with diamonds, gold and other fancy materials, you’ll still manage to scare your friends- even while kind of looking like a sissy in the process. Blame Gucci and Luis Vitton for this stuff.

He’s cute, cuddly and will end up setting your bed ablaze if you try to sleep with him. Another fine idea from SUCK UK.

Guess where the on/off switch is?

Bio Mechanical Skull

February 18, 2008 at 3:56 pm ($Expensive!, Bedroom, Decorations, Living Room)

I’ve been obsessed with bio mechanical robots ever since H.R. Giger and the Richard Stanley movie, Hardware. (Notice the similarity on the movie poster)

Coldly evocative yet almost sensual in its bronze metallic stare. Beautiful beautiful. Hand made by artist Christopher Conte. See his site for more otherworldly biomechanics.

Looks like a glass blown pipe, smokes like a Ferrari Spyder. With some acid, you’d think YOU were the tub.
