As much as I love vinyl, there is something about twisted plush toys that pull at my heartstrings. Enter the Roadkill toys, take the beauty of animal autopsy by automobile inside your home, safe from your dog rolling in it and safe from the stew pot. Twitch the Racoon and Grind the Rabbit sell for £25.00 each, and come inside a translucent body bag with toetag telling of the poor critter's demise.
Get your Squash-plush toys while they’re still fresh off the tarmac. Twitch the Raccoon was the first to be scraped off the road. But now there’s a new not-so-cuddly toy in town. His name is Grind the Rabbit. The first 1000 Grind characters are all limited edition. Each one has a personalised toe tag, handwritten by the creator. All of them have limited edition numbers. It took Adam, the creator, 7 long nights to finish all those tags, and caused him severe tendonitis. It’s not that we’re trying to emotionally blackmail you. Just buy one.
Frank Kozik has always tailored to the higher end vinyl art scene with his extremely limited busts of political icons, twisted in subtle ways. The busts are typically vinyl or fiberglass, often flocked, and sell for about 300 bucks each. This time, Kozik, is releasing the first bust under his Ultraviolence line, a line meant only for the deep pocketed. Meant to connect Alex from Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange with his love Of Beethoven, Ludwig features a bowler cap and will be finished as a bronze mold, set upon a pedestal of marble. While the price isn't set, expect this very limited run (only 20) to set you back at least $3000. But I'm sure after a wee night full of ultraviolence, you could come up with that much cash, eh?
I've been a wee bit absent about designer toy posts for a bit, ok, pretty absent about a lot of stuff.. to think I let BRO beat me to the punch on the Elmwood Strip Updates because I was too lazy to get the info out first. I'm approaching that point right now where blogging is getting harder and harder because i'm working more and more. I've got some tricks up my sleeve though...
Anyways, the Vinyl Toy Network was May 4th, an occasion full of collaborations and new customs and release teasers, like the one DKE Toys put out: a plush Anarchy Labbit. No word on price or release date, but I'm getting one.
Moving complete. I couldn't have done it without Chris's help, and thank god Faith from Horizon was in the office still when I locked the keys in the apartment. The new room @ Angel,s (now mine too WEEE!) digs wasn't as small as I thought with all my stuff moved in, but the single bed is a bit too small for Skylar's liking. Thats ok, he's already starting to take over Alma's favorite lounging spots. Alma is Angel's "pet friendly" old pissant kitty, and she is not having Skylar's fat ass. at. all. Give it time, i guess.
Thanks for the Snap Griffen Im catching the bus, and as soon as I get home, its moving time! Ill admit, I got little emotional when I was packing last night, but im excited none the less. I Have a big strong man for 2 hours too!
There are so many things going on right now, and sometimes I wonder if I can handle all the changes. See, I do big changes well: breakups, cross state moves, jobs. Something about starting fresh has been a major part of my life. However this time, its no real move for me, just a lot of seemingly small adjustments. But those adjustments are fucking with me.
I wonder what does it. Maybe because I can't start fresh, instead, I have to take control of my current situation and make it all work. Instead of new priorities, I have to adjust the ones already in place, all while making sure I dont fail my current responsibilities.
Every sector of my life is adusting.
Work: while im making barely more than before, my workload has tripled. Home: Im moving in with Angel on Wednesday. Its just across the block, but Im really gonna miss the studio. Love: goddamn, John is the best thing I could ever ask for in a man to love, and the hardest thing is to stay put. Im so disgustingly lovesick for this boy, but the right thing is for me to wait until its time.
Shit, even my metabolism is making a little bit of a change, and I have to decide how I wanna handle this new weight gain ability.
I guess this is a new frontier in my life, learning to deal with small changes and problems. Everybody welcome Nate 2.5.

So this isn't exactly what im doing right this second, im in angels room on the computer. And its kinda dark and boring here. So, Im sending a photo from the last place I was at: Firebrand on Elmwood. Miss Jessica has worked so hard making her store a success, its been a few months but she finally has a hot new logo & sign from Hero Design. Hit her up on 715 Elmwood and buy some sneaks, Yo!Thanks to "MeowMeow" for snapping me, and uh, telling me to "fuck a duck.">
CNN - A wall-mounted gadget designed to drive away loiterers with a shrill, piercing noise audible only to teens and young adults is infuriating civil liberties groups and tormenting young people after being introduced into the United States. The Mosquito, which targets loiterers, projects a shrill noise audible only to teens and young adults. Almost 1,000 units of the device, called the Mosquito, have been sold in the United States and Canada after the product debuted last year, according to Daniel Santell, the North America importer of the device sold under the company name Kids Be Gone. The high-frequency sound has been likened to fingernails dragged across a chalkboard or a pesky mosquito buzzing in your ear. It can be heard by most people in their teens and early 20s who still have sensitive hair cells in their inner ears. Whether you can hear the noise depends on how much your hearing has deteriorated: How loud you blast your iPod, for example, could affect your ability to detect it.
The device costs $1,500 to install, but some cities are claiming that it is an unnecessary and cruel form of a deterrent. A device like this has no regulation, and others are afraid the device would be mismanaged in the hands of private owners.
However, the shrill noise is nothing new, most commonly used as a free stealth ringtone called the "mosquito."
listen to a sample of it below. Can't hear it? that must mean you're old.
Oh Hai! I'm Nate and I live in the sometimes beautiful, always exciting, city of Buffalo, NY. I'm not too focused on this blog, but you'll probably end up reading something about Buffalo, my toy obsession, burly bears, club drama, Google Android, and some damn good music. This is my blog. Read it. Cheers.
