…It’s TGI Friday: 99 Bricks?

99 Bricks

I got 99 problems but a brick ain’t one.

99 Bricks is like an anti-Tetris. The goal is to use 99 bricks to create a tower that is as tall as you can make it, but in 99 Bricks, and unlike in Tetris, the blogs have a bit of give to them.

The result is that as the tower gets taller, it starts to sway and wobble under its own weight, and one misplaced brick can bring the whole thing crashing to the ground.

The controls are simple, the graphics are simply perfect, and the concept is easy to understand, but difficult to master, so it’s the perfect weekend time waster.

Be prepared though, because this one’s addicting.

…Thunder Panda is a papercraft pro?

Thunder Panda Papercraft

If you like the idea of papercraft, but don’t have the skills necessary to pull off some of the more advanced projects, then check out Eric Wiryanta (aka Thunder Panda)’s collection of papercraft toys.

Each of the cute little figures is easy to make, but the results are still rather impressive, so you’ll have an army of pugs, robots and space wanderers adorning your desk before you know it.

…PleaseDress.Me is tee-rific?

PleaseDress.Me

PleaseDress.Me is the ultimate t-shirt search engine.

Designed by Gary Vaynerchuk (of winelibrary.tv fame), AJ Vaynerchuk, and Joe Stump (lead architect for digg.com), PleaseDress.Me allows you to sift through the vast expanse of online t-shirts using searches by keyword/tag, color, price, or even random generation if you’re feeling especially indecisive.

    PleaseDressMe is a classic example of scratching ones own itch. AJ, Gary, and Joe love finding great new tees, but finding said tees wasn’t the easiest thing in the world. Rather than sifting through multiple websites [they] figured why not just go to one website that makes searching t-shirts easy? Once [they] came to that conclusion, Joe went right to coding and after a few calculated keystrokes [they] brought in Chris to make it pretty. The result is the simple, concise t-shirt search engine.

In addition to being a tee-rific resource for shirt enthusiasts, PleaseDress.Me is also a fantastic example of how to use Web 2.0 methods of promotion to get your product into the public eye.

PleaseDress.Me has an account on Twitter, a custom Firefox search box plugin, customizable widgets, an easy vendor upload process, a Facebook page, an open API, a send to a friend feature, badges for shirt vendors to display, and a full gamut of social bookmarking options, including Facebook, Digg, Pownce, Twitter, Delicious, and StumbleUpon.

So besides being a great example of how to promote a new website, does it actually work?

To test it out, I typed in the word “Ninja”, clicked Search, and was greeted with the following results:

Ninja

A ninja playing a tuba, a teenage mutant ninja turtle in a shredder, a ninja and pirate shirt, and smurfs acting like ninjas?

I’d say it works pretty damn well.

Give it a shot:


Each result features the price, a more info button, a StumbleUpon button, a Facebook button, and a Buy Now button. Clicking on a result’s more info button gives you that shirt’s chosen tags, as well as related shirts that you can view as well.

All in all, I’d say that it’s a fantastic service that makes searching for and actually finding shirts you’re looking for a quick and easy process, and that anyone looking for that perfect shirt to complete that perfect outfit should definitely check it out.

Now PleaseDress.Me!
