…It’s Things Thursday: Theory11 Playing Cards?

Theory11 Playing Cards

Theory11, the ‘underground magic & cardistry epicenter’ has created a line of playing cards that are simply unparalleled.

Lines include Propaganda (Playing cards uniquely engineered to military precision, with original, iconic style and unsurpassed quality. A refreshing, industrial spin on modern playing card design with a best in class feel and finish.) Bicycle Centurions (the next standard in playing card design) Bicycle Guardians (The traditional Bicycle back design has been reborn.) and a collaboration with David Blaine called Split Spades, and each is more stunning than the next.

If you’re a poker player, magician, or just someone that wants a little extra design in everything you touch, then definitely check out what Theory11 has to offer, but do it soon, because these cards just might vanish before your very own eyes.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Obamicon.me?

ObamiconMe

Since outbreaks of Obamania are sure to continue through the week and into the weekend, I though I’d point out a great way to vent some of that excess Obama energy: The Obamicon Generator.

An Obamicon is an image inspired by Shepard Fairey’s iconic Obama poster, and features red, white and blue cell shading with a simple message underneath.

To make your own Obamicon, just take a picture with your webcam or upload a photo, choose your message, and let the Obamicon generator go to work. Then, you can submit your newly minted Obamicon to the gallery, and vote on others that have been submitted as well. Finally, take your Obamicon and run it through Obamicon.me’s Zazzle store, and you’ll soon have more Obamicon mugs, hats and t-shirts than you’ll know what to do with.

…Gizmodo loves the Lego minifig?

Lego Minifig

The Lego minifig is a cultural icon, having been introduced in 1978, and remaining virtually unchanged for thirty years.

To see the evolution of the iconic figure, Gizmodo painstakingly collected and cataloged almost every minifig ever produced into a photographic timeline, and it’s a great look through the history of the fixed limb figure.

…Antler Rings look painful?

Anneke Van Bommel - Antler Rings

Continuing the trend of rings that can kill, Anneke Van Bommel’s Antler Rings “celebrate on of Canada’s most famous and iconic silhouettes.” The rings are available in either the Moose, Caribou, Elk, or Whitetail Deer variety, and are each hand cut and polished from sterling silver.

They’re a limited edition though, so if you want a set, be sure to get them while you can.

(Just remember to keep them away from your eyes!)

…Ed Janssen is a Charming Man?

Knuckle SandwichEd Janssen is This Charming Man, and creates jewelry pieces that “tend to be quite iconic, reflecting the everyday through a lens of humor that gives his pieces personalities of their own.”

His “knuckle sandwich” necklace is definitely his most popular piece, and for good reason, as the brass knuckles between two pieces of bread has taken on a cult status for its good looks and subtle charm.

Who’s hungry?
