Ghetto Blaster Laptop Case

This dude made an old skool boom-box laptop case. I NEED to try this with the Radio-Raheem model (not that easy to get a hold of one these days). It'll probably be even lighter without the 16-D batteries.

Nobody reads my blog (T-Shirt)

Chicks will dig you.

The "linkies" provided courtesy of Clubing baby seals.
Is this shirt a way to outwardly show grief over your vastly unappreciated blog, or is it a segue into the "Oh, you have a blog? What's the URL?" conversation? There is nothing wrong with trolling for new readers. If you're not advertising, how are you going to convince the world that your opinion is important?

Next Bond Girl (Casino Royale, Vesper Lynd) Jessica Alba?

The race to become the latest James Bond girl is on now that Daniel Craig is confirmed as 007. Jessica Alba is the first to start a campaign...

Other candidates include Rachel Stevens [pic
] and (updated 10/17) Jasmine Lennard [pic, story].

I think they should just use old footage of Peter Sellars (Casino Royale, 1967), that way they wouldn't have to come up with an original script or pay a living actor to actually act. Movie quality would be better that way anyway.
