Punk Rock Throbbleheads – Review

November 23, 2010

Aggronautix has all your faves like G.G. Allen, The Meatmen’s Tesco Vee, Wendy O’ Williams, Descendents’ Milo, Andrew W. K., and Circle Jerks’ Keith Morris.

Scrapbook Max – Review

March 30, 2007

You might be under the crazy impression that scrapbooks are musty, memory-filled physical objects to be enjoyed now and decades from now, when your grandkids hop up on your lap for visions of the days when dad had hair and mom didn’t shake involuntarily.

Gothic Calendar 2007 – Review

March 16, 2007

With Mistress Juliya on the cover, Lollipop cover model Satu gracing two pages, and Leaves’ Eyes’ Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull, and others who might be “names” to some but not to me, this is a classy $15 item you can proudly grace your walls with. It’s cheaper than a bucket of blood.

Olivia Barware – Review

April 28, 2006

Most artist series barware leaves me flat, but not these beautiful glasses from EroticEtch. Featuring the artwork of Olivia, the world-famous pin-up artist, these glasses are awesome. I’ve been a fan of Olivia’s work for a long time, ever since I saw her paintings on the cover of Heavy Metal.

Toxic Toons – Review

April 28, 2006

Based on the twisted comics of Eric Pigors, this playset comes with a creepy long-armed, skull-faced mortician named Pox, a ghoulishly sexy nurse named Miss Cery, a brainless zombie kid, a two-headed cadaver in a body bag, and a couple of skull-faced worms.

Spyke-IT Media Storage – Review

April 28, 2006

So simple, so useful. “Genius seems obvious in hindsight.” Don’t know who said it, but I’ve repeated it plenty. We tend to think of “new ideas” and “innovative inventions” as a cell phone that’ll start your car on a cold morning or a pill to make some part of you bigger, smaller, harder, or worry-fre

Coffin Case – Review

April 28, 2006

While trolling for cute girls on MySpace, I stumbled across Coffin Case, a company that makes coffin-shaped guitar cases. Their website is filled with super hot girls posing with the various models of cases, and they make cases that will fit every guitar I can think of (well, except that goofy guitar Prince uses).

Dead Batteries – Review

April 28, 2006

I thought it was just some art project I could spend a few bucks on and then impress my friends by having cooler useless shit around my house than them. But they work. And they cost $1.25 each.

Evil Now – Review

April 28, 2006

Evil Now is an electronic catalog/newsletter for Shane Bugbee, a self-promoting lunatic who’s been discovering/reselling/producing weird shit for 20 years now: CDs, DVDs, books, art prints, tee shirt, etc. And shot glasses. Serial killer stuff, Anton LaVey stuff, Dana Plato’s Last Breath… You know, the classics.

Gothic Calendar 2006 – Review

April 28, 2006

It’s a calendar, it hangs on the wall and you look at it to see what day the 17th is so you know when your phone will actually shut off. As a calendar, it functions.

The Postman – Review

April 28, 2006

The Postman sent us a package, and in it was a six-page color portfolio, with a personal letter/intro, and a closing Lollipop Licker stamp image stating “Coming soon in you postal mail box.”

Ugly Art Dolls – Review

April 28, 2006

If you like Tim Burton’s imagery and Rasputina’s lyrics and wish those cheesy Dead Dolls were higher quality than cereal box toys, Ugly Shyla has hand-made creepy dolls you’ll cherish and your friends’ll try to steal every time your back is turned.

Big Teaze Toys – Review

June 13, 2005

Under the guise of waterproof vibrating massagers comes the Big Teaze Toys’ line of playful pleasurables. There’s the Finding Nemo-esque Fishie, the Tickle-Popzzz (which makes it oh so much fun to say that I’m a Lollipop Girl), the variety of Rubber Duckies (the S&M Bondage duck is my personal favorite), and last but not least, the phallic Wormie.

Dirty Book Art – Review

June 13, 2005

Say it with me: “dirty… book… art.” That’s what it is. A site devoted to the pre-Fabio supermarket pulp, and not “historically-significant censorship-challenging stuff” like Lady Chatterly’s Lover.

Mark Reusch Pendants – Review

June 13, 2005

Former Lollipop artist Mark Reusch (that’s Mister Reusch to you, www.misterreusch.com) hooks up a licensing deal with Salem-based Arcane Nonesuch to produce his paintings on jewelry.

Sesame Street – Review

June 13, 2005

Unlike the teen girl “how to be more popular” books, we were stoked to get Sesame Street’s “Def Le Bird” tee shirt (try not to think too hard about the consequences of Big Bird and Def Leppard’s Pyromania), Cookie Monster sox, and especially the Oscar the Grouch furry CD wallet.
