DAILY GRAFFITI: PAINTED ON A DARK KNIGHT EDITION
Check this sick Batman piece. I can’t tell if it’s a wheatpaste or a stencil, but apparently it was painted on a Dark Knight. Geddit? Because jokes.

HUEY, DEWEY, AND LOUIE ROCK ICONIC STREETWEAR

Check out the duck triplets rocking Supreme, Nike, MORTE, and Givenchi. At first glance I thought these 3D illustrations by Simeon Georgiev were some sort of limited edition figure release, but sadly they’re not. Just 3D illustrations. Like with a computer. Like they’ll never be on my shelf. Sad as it is, they’re still hecka’ awesome.

BOB BURNQUIST HAS A FLOATING SKATE RAMP ON LAKE TAHOE
California’s Department of Tourism is on point. Click through for a video of skate legend Bob Burnquist skating on giant floating ramp in the middle of Lake Tahoe. The whole thing is supposed to make you want to visit Cali, but it really just makes me want to be rich so I can have my own floating skate ramp. And health insurance since I’ll probably hurt myself.

I wonder if all the rebellious skaters I looked up to as a kid secretly talk in snobby Ivy League voices to one another. “Oh, you absolutely MUST come with us to my floating ramp in Lake Tahoe over the summer, it’s TO DIE for. I can hardly imagine how I ever skated on sidewalks in public with so many poor people around!”

RED BULL CANS IN JUSTICE LEAGUE OUTFITS

The Red Bull Superhero Project is a design concept by New York-based Art Director Diego Fonseca.

It’s basic human knowledge that Red Bull tastes like complete caca mixed with vomit (if you don’t think so, you’re either a goddamn liar or your taste buds are playing an evil trick on you), but these packaging redesigns featuring the iconic costumes of DC superheroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern are sick enough that I could see people buying them just to display on their shelves. I’m sure people have displayed lamer things. I have a shelf full of Orbitz. Remember those? The little orbs are totally still floating and there’s even a mail-in rebate for a free movie ticket to see Independence Day starring Will Smith in theaters! No, you can’t have one.

PRICE: $13

ANYTHING FROM HARI KARI
I mean, this is my clothing company. I’m kinda trying to push sales here. If you could buy that one shirt called “The Burger Shirt,” that’d be really cool. Andrew “Angimoto” Douglas, who also works pretty close with Mega64 and Math the Band, made our last batch of shirts and he did an awesome fucking job with them. Seriously, they look incredible in person and they feel great on your body, so it’d be pretty neat if you guys bought a couple of shirts this holiday season for yourself and/or others. And keep in mind I don’t sell shirts at dumb prices so people can afford them, so feel free to buy two Hari Kari shirts for the price of one Supreme garment.
Price: $15-$30


VERY CASUAL BY MICHAEL DEFORGE
In a world where everyone is all too familiar with superheroes like The Hulk, Iron Man, and Batman, it’s hard pushing the idea of originality in comics for folk who don’t read them. I love showing people the weird and insane comics that are constantly being created and take full advantage of the comic book medium altogether, and if I had to choose one staple from 2013 that did just that, it’d be Very Casual by Michael DeForge. This is a gift I’d give to someone who appreciates art and storytelling with an open mind for oozing creativity and sickening unique fantasy, sprinkled with superb black humor.
Price: $13


ZIIIRO SATURN GUNMETAL DIGITAL WATCH
Ziiiro makes a ton of badass watches, but this one uses the word “gunmetal,” to describe its color. Holy shit that’s hot. It looks super future and its digital segments around its face tells you the hour, while the tiny lines toward the center shows you the minutes. If I were a super rad wife, I’d get this for my husband, but I’m not so I’m probably going to get it for myself this holiday season.
Price: $230

…LIKE CLOCKWORK BY QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
The entire year had some amazing music releases from Kanye West, Earl Sweatshirt, Deafheaven, and so many others, but Queens of the Stone Age released an absolute masterpiece called …Like Clockwork back in June that needs to be forever remembered. There’s a really nice double LP set that includes lyrics, and artwork from illustrator, Boneface, for every single song on the record. It looks insanely nice. I grabbed it earlier this year and it’s an absolute essential for a music aficionado that collects vinyl.
Price: $30



HEX GALLERY 13” CONVERTIBLE SLEEVE
Yo this shit is sexy as FUCK. This baby has a pocket for your Macbook Air AND your iPad. It keeps its rectangle shape and it doesn’t ever appear bulky, granted you actually have stuff to put in it. This is the perfect backpack for everyone who wants covert comfort for their electronics and pocket items, as well as having some sleek style to still mack on bitches while wearing a backpack.
Price: $60


MINDSPLOITATION: ASININE ASSIGNMENTS FOR THE ONLINE HOMEWORK CHEATING INDUSTRY BY VERNON CHATMAN
This year, I got really into Wonder Showzen and PFFR, the dudes behind Adult Swim shows Delocated and Xavier: Renegade Angel. Vernon Chatman, a member of PFFR who currently writes and produces for Louie and used to write Wonder Showzen, wrote a book this year that perfectly captures PFFR’s humor and concepts. The book is called Mindsploitation: Asinine Assignments for the Online Homework Cheating Industry and it is absolute genius. Vernon emails these homework websites that write essays for students and asks them to write the most insane shit he could possibly think of, like a eulogy for the dead grandma he always hated and a love letter to the teacher he’s turning his essay assignment to. It’s one of the funniest things I’ve read all year and I highly recommend gifting it to weirdo friends with a great sense of humor. 
Price: $13


GOD IS DISAPPOINTED IN YOU BY MARK RUSSELL
Well, the other thing I read this year that I thought was absolutely hilarious is a book called God Is Disappointed In You, which was written by Mark Russell and illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist, Shannon Wheeler. It’s a sharp, witty rewrite of the entire Holy Bible, giving rules and stories from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The book is profane and excellent prose, giving some solid satire and cutting the unnecessary fat out of the Bible’s stories to provide some comedy gold.
Price: $20



HEAVYWEIGHTS ON BLURAY
Yeah, I’m putting this on my list, fuck you if you don’t like this movie. Everyone always talks about Good Burger and no one ever talks about Heavyweights and it’s upsetting. Grab the Blu-ray edition of this Disney beauty for reasons explained here by yours truly. You have no soul if you don’t enjoy this flick.
Price: $15



WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT: 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION BLURAY
This is actually my favorite Disney movie. It’s now released on Blu-ray and its two-discs are packed with new commentary, a documentary on Roger Rabbit, a couple of shorts, and some other sweet extras. An absolute classic.
Price: $15


HIP-HOP FAMILY TREE BY ED PISKOR
If there’s anything I’ve learned about Ed Piskor, it’s that he does his research. Hip-Hop Family Tree conveys that perfectly. This is an essential graphic novel for hip-hop heads and comic book readers everywhere — it’s accurate and shows the stories of some of hip-hop’s earliest rap stars. A great gift for music lovers who also appreciate the arts.
Price: $15

Meet Copy & Paste, a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winner by Jayeong Yoon & Seulki Kim. It’s a handheld scanner and printer all in one. Just press a button underneath to scan, the button on top to print. No need for special fancy paper, but I wonder how steadily you’d have to move your hand during the scanning process to make a decent pic.

No More Jingling Keys: The Orbitkey

Hate the sound of annoying jingling keys? Hate dangling them off of the side of your pants with a carabiner? Here’s the Orbitkey: a leather strap that neatly organizes up to nine standard house keys with neat folding action. It’s stylish and neatly collects all of your spare keys together in a way that’s similar to a pocket knife. It’s $22, and it’s currently funded in less than 10 days via Kickstarter. Hoping to grab one for myself soon enough!
