support the planet
Behold the Eco-Bra, from women’s clothing maker Triumph International. It’s meant to promote a big lingerie trade show next year in Japan.

So… many… jokes…

- If face-to-face with someone wearing this bra, would it be appropriate to start pointing to all the places in the world I’ve visited (gently, of course)?

- Those leafy straps would be a bitch to conceal, and probably chafe like crazy.

- To keep this astronomically correct, I think different planets should represent different cup sizes: Jupiter for D-cups, Mars for A-cups, etc. (hey, other planets probably need saving too!).

- Matching panties? A Moon motif, maybe?

mini price
Eyeing one of those stylish (and accessorizable) iPod Minis for the holidays? I can’t vouch for this, but according to this site, they can be had at Bloomingdales.com for 20 percent off by using the coupon code “FF4PCB” when purchasing online. So the normal price of $249 drops to $199. (That coupon code may work when purchasing other items, I’m not clear on that.)

It’s tempting. But if I were to get a new iPod, I’d forgo the pretty colors and get a regular one, in all it’s white-and-silver glory (not to mention the minimum 15-gig hard drive — far more than I’d ever need, but still).

They’re big-big-big in Japan, so they’ll be a shoe-in to hit it big in the States: Power-pop duo Puffy AmiYumi are invading our shores via a Cartoon Network show, premiering tonight.

I’m smelling another “Pink Lady and Jeff” here.

I hadn’t said anything about Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who was laid to rest yesterday after dying in studio last week.

I can’t say I was a fan of ODB specifically, or even of Wu-Tang Clan. I didn’t dislike them, but I never sought out any of their music, and I can’t think of a single song of theirs off the top of my head. About the only thing that sticks in my head about ODB’s death was that, at 35 years old, he was uncomfortably close to my age; and while a hard-lived life like his would take a toll regardless of age, it’s only natural to be unsettled by the sudden death of a contemporary.

The main memory moment I have of ODB doesn’t even have him in it, but it’s funny nonetheless. It’s an episode of “The Larry Sanders Show” that had a brief guest appearance by Wu-Tang. Show sidekick Hank Kingsley (played brilliantly, as always, by Jeffrey Tambor) is worried about being replaced due to his age. Hank manifests his worry by asking someone, in grave tones, if he “skews to an older demographic”.

He tries to regain some hipness by walking up to Wu-Tang, who he had never heard of before, and trying to converse with them in his version of street talk. He’s failing miserably, they’re laughing at him, and then, noticing that not all of the bandmembers are there, Hank blurts out:

“Hey, where’s Ol’ Dirty Bitch?”

The Wu-Tang corrects Hank, and tells him that he’s in jail but will make the show.

Rest in peace, Ol’ Dirty Bitch. You’ve made the show.

fo shizzile
Spied this bottle of Finazzle just now, during a grocery store trip.

I was unaware that Snoop Dogg had branched out to shizzolatin’ bathroom cleaning products.
