Smorkin' Smoking Breakfast Toys w/ Bacon!

This is some mean looking breakfast. Frank Kozik's serving up a Smorkin' Breakfast and these little pissed off looking figures make me smile. On the menu: Angry Smorkin' Bacon, Crack'd Egg, Stale Donut and Toast and a mug of Bitter Coffee. I need more toys like a need a hole in my head, but I'm stopping at UrbanOutfitters on the way home and they'd better have this set in stock.

Skull Shower Curtain by Jeremy Fish

Spied this magnificent Skull Shower Curtain today at designpublic.comand need to own it. Made by Upper Playground, patterned vinyl curtain decorated with a skull and critter design from San Francisco artist Jeremy Fish. This really sucks for me because I already have my bathroom decorated pretty nicely and now I'm gonna have to redo everything to match, from the bath mat to the hand towels. It's the price you pay to be skullicious.

Bonus - Free Shipping on orders over $50 at Design Public!

Skellramics Skull Salt and Pepper Set

Very stylish Skellramics stoneware salt and pepper shakers from Thee Basket Boo-tique. These would look great on my table. Ever since I broke my Bugs Bunny & Gossamer salt and pepper set, I've been using the cheap plastic pre-filled ones from the supermarket. Time to upgrade.

A Bacon Meatloaf Cross - Happy Easter!

Forgive me if what I know about the Easter holiday can fit into a delicious Cadbury Cream Egg, but I thought that this Bacon Meatloaf Cross from Joolie and Eric at oh my stars and garters would be a perfect fit for today. Sacriligeous? Perhaps, but if you worship at the Church of Bacon you know that bacon rules over all.

Pres your meatloaf mixture into a cross pan

Bake and devour the tasty cross!

Skull Tea Set

I love quality-made, unusual skull pieces and this Skull Tea Set certainly fits the bill. Too bad I can't afford it. If I had $297.99 to burn you can be sure this would be in my skull collection.

This 9 piece porcelain tea set consists of 6 espresso cups, 1 sugar bowl, 1 creamer and 1 teapot, made in Germany.

Maple Bacon Lollipops

Boy, when a new bacon product pops out of someone's mind and into reality it sure doesn't take long for baconphiles to pick up on it and spread the word. Lollyphile's Maple-Bacon Lollipops are the new kid on the block. Seems like Lollyphile is just starting out and I say they did it on the right foot. They also have Absinthe lollipops if you're into that sort of stuff.

Bad News CD

** Re-upped the link on 4/21/09

This post has nothing to do with either skulls or bacon but I need to make this long out of print CD from Bad News available to whomever shares my great taste in comedy. Bad News was the awesome British answer to Spinal Tap that began as a 1983 episode from The Comic Strip, an English comedy troupe with three of the four Young Ones. If you already know what I'm talking about this upload needs no further explanation. News.rar

I'm pretty sure that my favorite track is "Excaliber Rehearsal".
"I don't think you can be very funny about metal."

Also, just found this Bad News bootleg from HAMMERSMITH ODEON, Nov. 5, 1987

Custom Skull & Bacon Postage!

Found these great postage stamps for sale on The coolest thing is you can create your own designs. Yes, they are real stamps! They're about twice the $ of regular stamps but you cannot put a price on cool.

Of course, there's always bacon postage. If they could make the glue taste like bacon I'd swear off email and start using the U.S. Postal Service again.

Take a look around at!

Steve Carell and Bacon Eyes

I was watching Fox5's Good Day NY this morning while getting ready for work and they were interviewing Steve Carell for the new “Horton Hears a Who” movie. They were asking questions sent in by little kids and a 6 year old asked, "If you could have a superpower, what would it be?" Steve Carell's answer was, "I'd like to be able to cook bacon with my eyes." These aren't exact quotes since I'm typing from memory (and a short one at that) but it's pretty damn close.

I want to be able to cook bacon with my eyes too.

Foodie Skulls

I love collecting skull stuff and I love finding unique or unusual skull items, especially housewares. I try to stay away from the Halloween-y type skulls, the mass-produced cheap skull paraphanalia that appears every October. Honey Bunny from Honey Bunny Designs really gets it and has come up with a great Foodie Skull design avialable on lots of different items. My favorite from her Cafepress shop are these Foodie Skull Tile Coasters. Gonna be perfect to set my morning coffee on while I enjoy my bacon and eggs.

Check out all of the Foodie Skulls available from Honey Bunny Designs

Bacon makes me hate Metallica somewhat less

I used to love Metallica, back in 1984 they were the reason I became a total metalhead. I was with them up until Load, yes, I even liked the Black Album. I can still listen to Master of Puppets and Ride the Lightning and thrash around but I don't want to hear, see or think about anything Lars and Co. are doing these days and I know I'm not alone here.

HOWEVER, someone just sent me a link to concert rider of theirs from 2004 where they demand bacon with every meal and to have bacon available all day and I have to hate them just a little less for that.

If you want to view the full 24-page concert rider, it's available at The Smoking Gun.
