No one expects Bubonic Plague!
IMPORTANT!!!
Inside each ball is liquid latex which makes the magic happen when you squeeze it. Be careful you don't pierce the ball with your fingernails or any other sharp object lest you be left with a puddle of neon colored goo. Gotcha?
People deal with stress in different ways. Some of us prefer shouting curse words. Others go out for a smoke. Still others head to the kitchen for a snack. All of these are bad habits, of course. We have a solution for the stress eaters of the world. Go to Wikipedia and look up infectious diseases. We can promise you that seeing pictures of pustules and boils will kill any appetite you may think you have. And yes, this is your friendly copywriter monkey speaking from experience. *barf*
Some fun things you may not know about infectious diseases:
  • Staphylococcus comes from the Greek words "staphyle" and "kokkos" meaning "a bunch of grapes." If you squeeze our Infectious Disease Stress Balls, you'll get a very nasty cluster of pustules, much like a bunch of grapes. Grapes full of orange pus.
  • Bubonic Plague came from the Greeks, too. Well, it came from rat fleas, but the word "bubo" means "swollen gland" in Greek, and if you were lucky enough to catch Bubonic Plague, you got lots of those in your armpits and groin. Ew.
  • While Cooties is currently immunizable by any child with the chant "Circle, circle, dot, dot, now you've got the Cooties shot," the word Cooties originally described lice in WWI. Soldiers also called them "arithmetic bugs" because "they added to our troubles, subtracted from our pleasures, divided our attention, and multiplied like hell."
  • Smallpox (not Greek!) is another picture you don't want to see before dinner. It localizes on the skin and in the mouth and throat and has a nasty rash and raised blisters full of fluid.
  • And finally, nobody expects the Zombie Virus in the movies. But we do. WE DO. We're really hoping the Zombie Virus doesn't turn skin green with orange pustules, but it sure would make the zombies easier to spot from a distance.
Four diseases
These stress balls come in a mesh-like bag. Do not remove the bag unless you want to ruin everything for everyone. Srsly, just leave it on because it's what makes the stress ball so much fun. Squeeze it hard and blisters will pop out of the holes in the bag and be a surprisingly different color than the ball itself, much like the things that come out of a boil when you lance it. Lost your lunch yet?
Product Features
  • Gross and totally fun stress balls, made at ThinkGeek
  • Leave the ball inside the mesh bag - do not remove it!
  • Squeeze the ball hard and gross blisters will pop out of the bag
  • Inner color of ball is different than the outer color for maximum gross-out

    • Bubonic Plague (blue)
    • Cooties (red)
    • Smallpox (green)
    • Zombie Virus (orange)
  • WARNING! CHOKING HAZARD. NOT FOR AGES 3 AND UNDER

R.I.P. British Psychedelic Pioneer Kevin Ayers


R.I.P. British Psychedelic Pioneer Kevin Ayers

Former member of Soft Machine passes away at age 68

R.I.P. British Psychedelic Pioneer Kevin Ayers
British psychedelic pioneer Kevin Ayers, a founding member of Soft Machine, has died, as MOJO reports. Ayers passed "seemingly in his sleep," according to MOJO, on February 18 at home in France. He was 68.
During the 1960s and 1970s, Ayers was a central player in the psychedelic movement in Britain, affiliated with the Canterbury scene. In the late 60s he founded Soft Machine with Robert Wyatt, leaving the band after they toured with Jimi Hendrix and recorded their 1968 self-titled record.
He went on to release over a dozen solo albums, beginning with the 1969 psychedelic pop record Joy of a Toy until his final album, 2007's Unfairground. Ayers collaborated with Brian Eno, John Cale, Nico, Syd Barrett, and many more throughout his distinct body of work. His final album featured collaborations with younger artists whom he'd influenced, including members of Neutral Milk Hotel, Teenage Fanclub, and Ladybug Transistor.

My Bloody Valentine “she found now”


My Bloody Valentine
“she found now”


Twenty-two years since their classic Loveless and only two cover songs to tide fans over, My Bloody Valentine’s long-awaited third album m b v finally squeezed its way out of Kevin Shields’ perfectionist clutches last night. Afterbreaking the internet with the lust of blitzing fans, the band’s newly inaugurated website is back up and selling m b v as a download, with CD and vinyl options. Hearing new My Bloody Valentine material is pretty shocking for someone who has been persistently betrayed by Shields’ promises, and it’s tempting to dismiss m b v and its artwork as a mere successor to Loveless, feeding off of its extended afterglow. But what at first seems to be a more straightforward follow-up, bereft of the loopy abstraction of the band’s most experimental wash, eventually delivers on the ecstatic bliss of peaking tracks such as “Soon” and “Swallow” with an ending so messed up that it evokes Royal Trux and To Live and Shave in L.A. at their most demented. Lovelesswas a grower, and m b v is already getting better with every listen.
Buy m b v at My Bloody Valentine’s official website, and stream the official upload of opening track “she found now” here:
The rest of the tracks have been uploaded by MBV here:http://www.youtube.com/user/TheOfficialMBV?feature=watch
