Lately Ive been on a blog kick for blogs featuring crafts gone wrong. It started with Fail Cakes but now thanks to my friends Ive learned of several other blogs featuring adventures in domesticity that dont quite turn out as planned.
Why Would You Knit That
This blog explores all the things people knit that probably shouldnt be knitted. Because you know, knitted candy corn pasties are just oh so sexy.
What Not To Crochet
This blog is much like the previous one but for those of us who yield one stick instead of two.
What Not To Craft
Because yarn shouldnt get to have all the fun in failing this site to highlights all sorts of crafts and cooking ventures gone horribly horribly wrong. Or horribly horribly right? Felted Jesus is kind of totally awesome.
Another hilarious site for people to show off all their failed craft projects. Not all of them are fails in my mind…this failed attempt to make a pink parsley flecked soap resulted in something amazing…SPAM soap!
Anyone else have any links to blogs that feature failed crafts? Post them up in the comments! Or share your own craft failures!
My friend Greg just sent this amazing video to me…rather than explain it I’ll just let the video speak for itself.
Sadly LazyTown is none too pleased with it so they removed the video from youtube…im trying to find another embed code from a different site but am not having much luck so you’ll just have to do a little work and CLICK THIS LINK.
So amazing and so wrong….yet so right.
FYI I do not condone cooking by the book! Recipes are all about making them your own and creating your own fusion of flavors. So I think we can all learn from this video that if you do cook by the book, Lil John will bust into your kitchen, scream in your face and spray you with his lil frosting.
EDIT- LazyTown is none to pleased with this mashup so they are removing it from many sites….thankfully its still up on some! watch it before they catch it!
This morning my friend pointed me in the direction of what may be the most ridiculous thing ever…
Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals
Basically the game has you making a delicious turkey dinner…but instead of sweet innocent mama you have A BLOOD THIRSTY HELL DEMON WITH BLOOD DRIPPING FROM HER ARMS AS SHE BUTCHERS INNOCENT TURKEYS! rawwwwr!
Once again PETA is trying their tactic of gross out and shock in order to convert people to veganism…only it doesnt quite work when its a brightly colored flash game. (which by the way the game sucks…its really hastily and poorly designed).
Im all for not eating meat…I was a vegetarian for 6 years and havent eaten any red meat in over 9 years..but come on PETA just cut it out and quit giving all vegetarians and vegans a bad name. You are just a parody of yourself at this point (especially after that Ben and Jerry’s boobie milk stunt) so please just slink off quietly into the good night while you still have some shred of dignity left.
I guess the other reason why I find this game so stupid is not only the blatant copyright infringement (countdown to lawsuit in 3….2…..) but the fact that I firmly believe all turkeys should die. Not because I think turkey is particularly tasty or anything, but because turkeys are the dumbest most annoying birds on the planet and contribute absolutely nothing. Someone show me how turkeys are vital to the cycle of life…really what do they do? Aside from humans not many animals eat them and they arent like keeping any species in a population check. Honestly I think if all turkeys disappeared the world would be unchanged aside from Thanksgiving. I guess its also because I have a bias…my old college had wild turkeys roaming around the campus and they would always run out in front of our cars and we would have to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting them. Then they would just sit in the road and flap their wings tying to fly (which if you’ve never seen a turkey try to fly, its the most pathetic thing on earth) instead of getting out of the way. They nearly caused so many accidents and made me late for class all the time, I didnt eat poultry back then and I still wanted to strangle them! Sorry about the rant but I just REALLY hate turkeys.
So in conclusion, PETA STFU seriously and enjoy your Majesco lawsuit!

As it has been well established in this blog I love bacon. Now I can live out my dreams of being the Queen of Bacon complete with my own Bacon Tiara!
Im not sure if this would actually be a good idea for me to wear this…I’d probably eat it before I got to wherever I was going.
For instructions on how to make your own check out the detailed instructions. It actually seems a bit more work than I would’ve thought (it involves a food processor for making ‘meat glue’?!) but I might have to make my own one of these days. Hell I could make it for my wedding to match my future husbands bacon tuxedo.

Namco Bandai will release a new alarm clock this November which requires the user to shoot a target in order to turn the alarm off.
Behold the Gun O’Clock
“When the alarm stars ringing, you have to get up, grab your gun, and start shooting. Every time you pull the trigger and miss, you’ll feel the blowback—if you hit the target, the alarm will stop and you can wake up refreshed and satisfied. You can choose from Normal or Hard mode—the latter requires you to hit the target five times.” LISA KATAYAMA from Tokyo Mango
I personally like the idea of waking up and being presented with a challenge…although I wonder if it has a sleep mode since personally I require hitting snooze at least 5 times before actually waking up.
On a side note, I love the illustrations that come with the press release
That guy is very happy to be awake.
