Steve Levenstein from J A P A N O R A M A says, “The fetid fizzies cost 315 yen (about $3.30) each which isn’t bad - I’ve paid more for crap and you probably have too. Besides, these bath bombs do have some redeeming value: It’s not every day one can get into sh*t and come out smelling like roses.”


The fetid fizzies remind me of Britcom “Benidorm” and its classic “sh*t pool” scene.

Drawdio: Turn Almost Anything Into a Theremin

This Drawdio kit can be yours for $17.50 at Adafruit Industries. Creator, Jay Silver talks about Drawdio:

Imagine you could draw musical instruments on normal paper with any pencil (cheap circuit thumb-tacked on) and then play them with your finger. The Drawdio circuit-craft lets you MacGuyver your everyday objects into musical instruments: paintbrushes, macaroni, trees, grandpa, even the kitchen sink…

One day I bought a “harmonium” kit at the street market in Bangalore. I hacksawed the keyboard off to make the first ever Drawdio circuit. We played with it at a local school in the slums using plants, water, our foreheads, etc. My friend told me graphite would work too. Meditating on it, I realized the Drawdio circuit should be literally attached to a pencil to “draw audio,” and that’s where the name came from: Draw + Audio.

We can be rich in cotton and mining metals and silkworms and we can makes things, we can make things cars, the machine can make it for us…on the East Coast they have slaves and they believe in slavery and made in China, but on the West Coast, the new West Coast, we don’t believe in that. We believe in the union and that’s what we are.

Here’s a website dedicated to the art of “Asian posing.” The creator of the site, Steve, claims to suffer from a condition known as the Cute Asian Girls Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (CAGOCD). Steve says:

Simply smiling in a photo is so boring, why not strike a pose? Asians are notorious for their quirky and cute poses and this site focuses on documenting these poses. To help you recognize various poses, visual aids will be provided courtesy of popular Korean, Japanese, and Chinese models. The site?
