Affluenza: November 14

Case Dining And Coffee Table
Finally, a solution for all those times you need to transport your coffee table with you.

Molly sends us this encouraging news that two Affluenza features may thankfully be coming to an end: these ugly, stupid ceramic holders feature both Open Flames and a fake Log, and has been marked down more than half price recently.

It's A Log, You Idiots: Wood Yoyo
I think I saw those two designers selling used VHS tapes at the flea market a few weeks ago.

There's a website called "Mod Cloth" and it only features women's clothes? Lame.

If you knew someone who was really into anime that featured tentacle love, this would be a pretty awesome gift.

Awesome. I can't believe I've never taken pictures of my Donald J. Pliner shoes that feature this same leather effect. Someone remind me to do that...they are, no lie, my absolute prized possessions. That, and my integrity.

What the hell. First of all, that knot is needlessly fussy looking. There are few things less rewarding than looking like you're trying too hard with your scarf. Second of all, fifty bucks to anyone who can actually decipher these directions.
I'm mostly only posting this so I can link again to this simple scarf tutorial, which features all the scarf styling you'll ever need to know in this life. 
In my own daily scarf-wearing, I usually go with the style known as Wrap It Around A Few Times And Then Mess With It All Day In Aggravation.

Mom! Moooooooooooooooom!!!!

Affluenza recommends the red.

Whoa. Gorgeous...and don't miss the liner.

A golden bathtub, y'all.

The problem with any Internet-based criticism is that you don't want to be that guy just yelling "Fail" at everything. But seriously, nothing else needs to be said about these fiascos. Ahem: FAIL.

Toaster Concept: Darth Vader Toaster

The Keep Calm people have spent the last couple of years trying to build on the popularity of their Keep Calm And Carry On posters, but all of their other designs either fall flat or are just plain ugly. This Keep It Simple poster is the only work of theirs that I think even comes close to interesting. Pity about the $56...

In an earlier Affluenza, I talked about how "price available upon request" is usually just a synonym for "get fucked." However, The New York Times recently investigated the phenomenon, and uncovered a truth that surprised even me: "price available upon request" often means "we don't actually make this."
