I'll stick with Woot! as my esoteric online shopping experience.

Know what else was released as a limited edition? Pepsi Blue!

Don't care about you haters - I'm gettin' me one o' them sweeeet fox-fur hammocks...

The sheer chutzpah of conceiving, let alone making and selling a cashmere-lined fox-fur hammock for £9,000. Dear God, somebody think of the kits!

On the other hand, I'd blow my own dead granny for one of the "Klingon" silver teasets by Zaha Hadid, a steal at £20,000. Simultaneously gorgeous, deadly and tasty.

Since I am waiting for the site to l o a d,
I will ask how does one blow a dead granny?

This is an ad, right? Kinda interesting from a marketing perspective, but an ad.

I must confess that I like the fact that the Devil Damask wallpaper is priced at £666.

I don't see anything but a language selector and "20 ltd" on a black screen, and nothing happens after I select a language. How can I be expected to hate these people when I can't even see their products?

MarshallPoe is right; I thought I was on the wrong site for a minute, there. This seems less like a post and more like viral marketing.

"How can I be expected to hate these people when I can't even see their products?"

I have refused to click on the link as this reads to me like AdvertFilter, and yet I can find it in myself to hate these people. Try again PracoWity. Look deep inside yourself to find the hateness. =) It's actually easier to hate their elite affluent snobbish aura if you don't bother to click on the link. Why let your faith be overshadowed by facts?

Jesus H. Fucking Christ on a pogo stick...there are still lame-ass wannabes who open new maximized browser windows to launch their oh-so-important sites? Nothing says "I'm a hugely pretentious twat" like that does.

Really come on that motorcycle is BAD. ASS. The site is a piece of shit. I'd pay 666 pounds to beat the shit out of the designer, maybe.
posted by spicynuts at 6:41 AM on April 30, 2007


Ooh, I want that sexy black motorcycle (#1) the Hellcat Combat Mororcycle, (only 40 thousand pounds British sterling) serious eye candy and the yummy sounding perfume (#17), "herbaceous and earthy, Fleur de Sels (just a thousand pounds and wonder why it's not spelled du Sels, not de Sels, anyone know? It sounds like an interesting salt.). wow, They actually make cashmere T shirts (#8). The cashmere and fox fur lined hammock is mind-boggling (#12), only 5 made. Bet that's amazing to snuggle in.

But if we're going into I Want I Want Swoons, then I'll make another wishlist: Masai Barefoot Technology shoes, size 8 in black or a day spa with lots of massage, *sigh*.

Ugh, does it really have to open me another browser window when I had a perfectly usable one going in there in the first place? Right behind maxwelton and spicynuts on this one :)

It all looks like expensive pretentions junk anyways!

Yeah, the motorcycle is bad ass, as is the "good vs. evil" fooseball set.

On the other hand, people with this much money make me sick. :P

Nothing reminds one more strongly of one's abject poverty than the knowledge that there are people who can and will buy this shit. I just spent the morning on salary.com; realized I'm way underpaid; and that the median for my current job is crap, anyway. I pop on over to mefi to cheer myself up and get my face rubbed in the fact that I will never string a fox fur hammock between two evergreens and luxuriate in the crisp, clear calm of a winter morning in a Norse fantasy.

...Thorvald [Grod,] a young man brought up in the Orkneys, embarks on a sea voyage in search of his father Somerlad, exiled for murder before Thorvald [Grod] was born. He is accompanied by his friend Sam and Creidhe, daughter of the Viking warrior Eyvind and the Pictish Princess Nessa. The three are wrecked in the Lost Isles and encounter the Long Knife people, a tribe with a [fox fur string hammock] disquieting secret.

Yah the 300 dollars for a t-shirt makes me cringe. But the music is pretty cool though. Ol`Dirty rapping over Mark Ronson's cover of Toxic is interesting.

They began to lose me with the flash and I couldn't close the window fast enough when they saw fit to hijack my browser for unfettered viewing.

Nope. Not gonna play that.

You know, if we took away the distraction that these overpriced gewgaws and gimcracks provide the super-wealthy, they'd spend all thier time hunting men for pleasure. Is that really what you want?

Yes, it's kinda jerky behavior, but I hafta admit I was impressed by a website totally pwning my second monitor--never seen that before.

Never seen a fur hammock neither. Sorta the definition of evil lust n laziness. The part of me that wants one concerns the other part. But it would go so well with my fur sink.
posted by flotson at 3:17 PM on April 30, 2007


Boo? The folks of Boo.com *wish* they could have done a web site like this. Still, I don't care for it.

I dig the foosball table, though. ;)
posted by deCadmus at 7:19 PM on April 30, 2007


The foosball table irks me because the "evil" side is suspiciously dark-skinned while the "good" side has a white "God" and, with the exception of Ghandi, is mostly light-skinned. The whites/goods even have Santa Claus on their side.

So damn dumb.

Bring 'em on.

Or is this one of the hunts where I get hit on the head, then drugged and left in a cemetary, then the rich guy gets an ATV and a rifle, and all I get is no shoes and a sore, foggy head?

'Cos if it's the latter, I want to change my vote.
