The Motherfucking Pterodactyl

This is another of those things that I just have to share. The video you find so amazing that you make everyone you know watch it. Then they look at you in puzzled bewilderment and say, “How do you find these things?” Yup, this is one of those things.

The song is by Sarah Donner and The Oatmeal. I recognized The Oatmeal, because their website is awesome. I’ve spent hours checking out the comics there, you should too.

Flash Friday: Make it Happen Lego

Happy Flash Friday everyone! It’s a pretty exciting weekend for everyone who likes to get their superhero fix through animation. DC Nation has been going for a little bit on Saturday mornings and now Marvel is going to have an animation block on Sundays with Ultimate Spiderman and the Avengers cartoon. On top of that we are getting more details about Lego Batman 2 DC Super Heroes. So where is my Flash Lego?

After all the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean; you pretty much know what to expect with a Lego game. You either like it or you don’t. I enjoy them a lot, but I don’t buy a lot of them. Usually I can get what I want out of them with a rental. Batman 2 may end up being a buy though. Obviously Batman and Robin are playable. The different Batman suits will be returning. Superman is confirmed and most press releases are saying Green Lantern and Wonder Woman will be in it. Again, where is my Flash Lego?

I’m not just asking about in the video game either. The first wave of DC Legos looked great, but only one of the mini-fig scaled sets wasn’t Batman related. The Lex Luthor robot suit is fantastic. Wonder Woman and Superman looked great. Wouldn’t a Flash set with a Captain Cold look great too? Lego already has a hooded parka for the mini-figs.

I realize Batman is the easiest to do building sets out of, he has the most toys. Cars, boats, motorcycles, etc… It is hard to figure out how to incorporate building blocks with the speedster character without doing what Minimates did and build a strange red spaceship. They could package him with some villains and a bank. Or a science lab. Or a Flash Museum. Okay I realize the last one will probably never happen, but I can dream can’t I?

Hangover Thursday: Fat Tires in the Motor City

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? I had my heart broken twice at the bar last night. First when I found out Southern Tier’s Mocha was already sold out on draft and then again when the Red Wings lost to Columbus. Detroit fans have nothing to worry about though, the Wings have already clinched a spot in the playoffs. They have something else to look forward to, come August they’ll be able to enjoy Fat Tire Amber Ale.

New Belgium will start with 22oz bottles. 12oz bottles and draft will follow. 22 Michigan distributors will be carrying their beer. Fat Tire Amber is their most known, but New Belgium has more than just one beer to offer. The 1554 Black Ale is also a very nice beer. Michigan is the 29th state to be added to New Belgium’s distribution area. Still no Florida though. That may be one of the reasons I like it so much, it is so hard for me to get.

666, I’m loving it!

Have you noticed all the fast food chains promoting their fish sandwiches lately? It’s an easy indicator that we are in the middle of Lent. For those not of a Christian bent, Lent is an observance that lasts from Ash Wednesday till the day before Easter. One of the ways it is observed is by fasting. Over the years that fasting has evolved to most participants eating fish and no other meat. Some only do this on Fridays, so do it for all of Lent. So believe it or not, there is a religious reason for things like McFish Bites.

Because I had known all of this, it didn’t surprise me when I saw the most recent McDonalds commercial showing that I can get two of their Filet-O-Fish sandwiches for 3.33. I thought the price was a little strange, but I didn’t think much of it. The commercial went on to inform me that I could also get two of their medium French fries for 3.33. Again, it was a strange price. Sure it was the number 3 (it’s a magic number) repeated three times, but there was something else bothering me about it.

Now that really got me thinking. 2 Filet-O-Fish and 2 medium fries are 6.66. McDonalds currently has a deal aimed at Christians, that if you take full advantage of it will total up to the Mark of the Beast. Sure, I get that sales tax will keep it from ringing up at 666; just adding drinks to the order will change it completely. Still, behind all those holy fish sandwiches is the Number of the Beast.

Dance with the Old 97s

It has been one of those weekends where I think I’ll get more rest at work than I did at home. So it’d be pretty accurate to say that I’m dragging today. One of those things I like to use as a pick me up is music. Sometimes I need something loud and violent, other times Irish, but today it is all about the Old 97s. I’m a huge fan of the band and even saw them playing before a Dallas Stars playoff game.

The above video for their song “Dance with Me” is crazy fun. If the promise of awesome music doesn’t get you to watch it, there is also Tricia Helfer. I’m not a fan of the new Battlestar Galatica (please no hatemail), but I’ve been a fan of Helfer’s ever since she voiced EDI in the Mass Effect series. Anyway, hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do.

Citadel Paint Chart

Games Workshop has just announced their changes to the Citadel Paint range and they are huge. We knew it was coming. Months ago Games Workshop was changing how retail stores ordered their paint restocks, so something had to be up. Then in early March the real details began to leak. This wasn’t a change to bottles or anything; this was a change to everything. The line was expanding up to 145 items and every paint in the old line was being renamed.

Now I am very color blind. Not just red/green either. I don’t see in black and white or anything, but I have a lot of trouble differentiating shades. Because of that, I’m very conscious of my color choices. When playing video games if the colors in the character creator aren’t labeled, I have to call my wife over double check my selections. I’ve made a couple people have green tinted skin because I was trying for Asian or tanned. So when I started playing Warhammer 40K again I studied numerous other peoples painting techniques for Salamander marines. When I was ready, I had a list of the paint names I needed.

Thankfully Games Workshop created the Citadel Conversion Chart. This is my new best friend. When the news that changes were coming hit I did buy another pot of the paint most important to my army, but even that won’t last forever. I’ve shown off my Salamander Marines, and each of them requires two coats of what used to be known as Snot Greet. Now (when I finally run out of what I have) it’ll be Warpstone Glow. My beloved Boltgun Metal is now Leadbelcher. Oh and the most vile smelling thing in the world, Badab Black is now Nuln Oil. At least the names are still ridiculous.

Flash Friday: Angry Birds in Space

Happy Flash Friday everyone! This is going to be a pretty short one today. I don’t have a lot to say about today’s subject, but I wanted to make sure I brought it to everyone’s attention. Today’s Flash Friday comes from an unlikely source, the new Angry Birds Space game.

This is the new “space” look for the Blue Bird. As far as I can tell they are wearing red cowls with yellow wings on the side. That’s such a familiar look; I wonder where I’ve seen it before? I can’t believe that this isn’t intentional. If it would have just been the design, I wouldn’t have through much about it, but the color being a perfect Flash match is just too much of a coincidence.

Sadly the special ability of the Blue Bird hasn’t changed with this new Flash-y look. Instead of super speed the Blue Bird still splits into three versions of itself. It would have been pretty cool if they could vibrate through things or create whirlwinds. Anyway, the new Angry Birds Space game came out yesterday, go check it out if you like flinging birds at pigs.

Hangover Thursday: Pioneering Beering

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? Sadly mine is clear today. I had really expected to catch some down time at the bar last night, but sometimes life has other plans for you. Anyway I hope everyone survived their St. Patrick’s Day experiences mostly unharmed. I managed to get out of the bar after a beer and a shot. Even I was surprised.

Australian beer Hahn has made some pretty awesome commercials in the past, not it looks like they are trying to push a series of shorts viral. I still haven’t even seen a bottle of Hahn in real life, so I can’t tell you if it is a good beer or not, but I can tell you their marketing staff is pretty brilliant.

So far there are seven Pioneering Beering clips, if they prove to be as popular as I think they are going to be, I’m sure we’ll see more of them. There is something about the deadpan delivery of Howie and Binkers that makes these funnier than they should be. It’s like they are a silent Bunsen and Beaker.

Turtle Troubles

So Michael Bay has access to another beloved 80’s toy franchise and the internet is not happy. This time he was recorded talking about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. "These turtles are from an alien race," Bay said recently at an event. "And they're going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable." This is not making people happy. Bay has tried to do some damage control, saying that we haven’t seen the story behind it yet and things like that. I expect right now there are probably three or four internet petitions going on.

I understand what you Turtle fans are going through. I went through it too. In fact it the TMNT franchise that broke my heart way back in 1987 when that cartoon that you all love came out. I had already been reading the TMNT comics; I thought Raphael #1 was one of the coolest books I had ever read. I wasn’t lucky enough to have a first printing of TMNT #1, but I did have one of the numerous reprints. There were no “awesome” pizza parties, they didn’t have their initials on their belts, and the covers let me know that they all wore red bandanas. Foot soldiers were soldiers not robots, and there was blood.

Honestly if you've never read the original turtle comics you are missing out.  IDW has started putting out really nice hardcovers collecting that Mirage Studios run. The first volume covers issue 1-7 and the Raphael one shot that I had mentioned earlier.  The second volume isn't out yet, although Amazon already has it listed for pre-order.

I’m not saying that Michael Bay is right, I still haven’t seen any of his Transformers movies and I never will. It is quite possible that the new TMNT plans are a complete train wreck. However good or bad the new movie will be, the TMNT franchise will survive. After all it already survived Vanilla Ice.

Dollar Shave Club

The illustration of me on the website is pretty much spot on. Actual photos of me have managed to sneak onto this site a few times; it would have been difficult to do the Playoff Beard Challenge without showing my face. The reason I’m talking about this, is because I shave my head. Sure, nature is doing a good job of giving me less to shave each morning, but I still have to help it out. If I don’t shave my head at least every other day the stubble starts driving me crazy. So I’m really glad I just discovered Dollar Shave Club.

If you have to shave a lot, this could be a huge money saver. I normally use the most basic Mach3 blades that I can find. That usually runs about 25 dollars for 10. Dollar Shave Club has three razor options. The twin is a dollar, sure it is three dollars when you add in shipping, but that is still five cartridges a month for three dollars. The option I just signed up for is six dollars a month for four cartridges of a four bladed razor. They also have an Executive option for nine dollars a month, but that was more razor than I wanted.

The site is apparently taking off; my blades won’t start shipping till May. That’s okay though, I had just purchased a 10 pack. I’ll need to work through those. I shave enough that this is perfect for me, check out the site and see if the deal is worth it for you.

Damn you Forge World...

We loves us some Warhammer 40k here. Within Games Workshop (the makers of said game) is a specialty wing called Forge World. Forge World makes resin Titans and super heavy tanks. These items are very detailed and also very expensive. The book above is the newest Imperial Armor book, this one has the rules for all the sweet sweet Eldar goodness. Now the problem is you can only really use the kit from Forge World in Apocalypse games (massive 40k games starting with 3,000 points a side). In this area we don't play much Apocalypse, so I don't need that book. But damn, I want it. Then when this is in my grubby little hands, I will not need anything contained within. But damn, I want some. Anyway, while I drool over resin crack and watch exchange rates for the British Pound enjoy this quick rundown of the 40k background. Check out the other videos by them as they rundown all kinds of backgrounds and are worth a chuckle or two.

Muppets Feel the Hunger

I don’t think it will surprise anyone to know that I loved the latest Muppet movie.  I thought their parody trailers were extremely funny.    To celebrate the DVD release, they've done it again.

Looks like I’m heading to the store on the 20th.

Flash Friday: Fast Money

Happy Flash Friday everyone! We’re going a little image heavy with today’s post. I’ve mentioned before how sometimes I have topics for Flash Friday planned out for weeks in advance and sometimes I just stumble onto a topic that morning. Today is one of those later situations. You see, my wallet is dying. It’s served me well over the years. The Guinness logo on the front is almost unrecognizable it has seen so much wear and tear. It is time for a new wallet, so I figured it was time to get a Flash wallet. Luckily there are a lot of Flash themed wallets out there to choose from.

The Vintage Flash wallet is really nice looking. It is a little yellow for my own personal tastes. I’ve mentioned in the past how I prefer symbols over actual characters on my Flash merchandise and that hasn’t changed. It is a good looking wallet; it has that retro look that a lot of people like. In the end it wasn’t the one for me.

The Boundless Flash wallet is more my style. Sure it is a simple design, but it’s striking. I was really getting ready to order this one and go on with the rest of my morning. The more I thought about the lightning tips sticking off the wallet the more I disliked it though. I can easily imagine them catching on things or getting bent out of shape. Reluctantly, I passed on this one too.

Hahahaha. No. No offense to anyone who currently has this wallet, or is looking at the picture and wants to order one, but it’s not for me. Next wallet.

If you’re looking for a more recent Flash image, this wallet is wrapped with the image from the first issue of Barry’s first return. The one before the new 52. I know, we’ve had so many relaunches lately that I get confused too. Anyway, if you want a modern looking Flash who doesn’t have a chinstrap and a million lines on his uniform this would be a great wallet for you.

I’m calling this one the Graffiti wallet. I won’t lie, this one made me pause too. It has a lot of good things going for it. The character isn’t on it, only the symbol. The wallet is mostly black. I even like the paint drippy logo. It ended up being just a little too much going on though. I’m good with one logo; I don’t need to see the lightning bolt six times on each side.

What is this? Could it be? A simple red wallet with the classic Flash symbol placed in the middle. I know some people might find this one boring, but it was exactly what I was looking for. The wallet is made out of tyvek, which will supposedly make it hard to tear or rip. Regardless of the materials, I’ve already ordered this one. Give me a week or two and I’ll let you know if it was worth all the trouble it took to find the best one.

Hangover Thursday: Black and Tans

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? I found my Southern Tier Mocha last night. It wasn’t on draft, but even still it was a fantastic beer. I’m also starting to get settled in to my new bar, they have an army of bartenders so it is taking a bit to get to know everyone. But they are happy to put hockey on one of the televisions for me, so it is all working out pretty well so far.

Nike is making headlines right now because of two shoes they are releasing for St. Patrick ’s Day. The high top is based on a pint of Guinness and the other shoe is based on a Black and Tan. The name is no big deal here, but that isn’t a friendly term in Ireland. The Black and Tan’s were a British paramilitary group known for their brutality in Ireland. Obviously the name isn’t going well over there. Nike should probably stop production of their unannounced Carbomb sneaker, that term isn’t liked very much either.

What is more surprising to me is that the Guinness themed sneaker is getting ignored. Nike is pretty much using the name of the beer to advertise their shoe, without actually being a licensed product. Guinness is very, very good at merchandising. They could sell a shoe with their harp and the Arthur Guinness signature; I have no doubt about that. Imagine what would happen if Nike made a shoe that was decorated red, blue, and had webbing on it. Then they advertise the shoe as the Spiderman…

Finally, Saturday is St. Patrick’s. Let me leave you with these things to remember. The bars are going to be full of people who only get drunk three times a year (St. Pat’s, Cinco De Mayo, New Years Eve), these people are only going out to get as bombed as possible. Please be careful. Don’t drink green beer. You’re better than that. Drink a good Irish beer if you want to drink something festive. And finally, drive safe everyone. There will be tons of drunks on the road, don’t be one of them.

Ghostbusters vs The Claw

So let’s say you’re going to a midnight game release and you have a few hours to kill. Obviously you can do something productive or if you’re like me, you might end up at the bar for two plus hours. If you’ve gone that far, you may wander over to Wal-Mart after you check in at the game store. While at the Walmart you just might, and I don’t recommend it, see a bag of bacon ranch popcorn and think it is a good idea to buy it. This really isn’t a good idea, but we’re going to chalk it up to all that beer. Finally, when you are leaving said Wal-Mart you may come across a crane game full of pure 80’s nostalgia.

If you couldn’t tell by my subtle storytelling, this is exactly what happened to me early this month. That pure nostalgia came in the form of plush Ghostbusters. I didn’t try to win any of these guys, which is probably a good thing. I’ve read elsewhere that there is supposedly a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in the line too, but I haven’t seen it. I am impressed that Winston is included in the line. Still I have to wonder how many kids are ligning up for these?  For those not skilled at the crane game, I’m sure these things are showing up on ebay.

Community Returns

I may have gone to a dark place when NBC pulled Community off the air. To make it even worse there were a few days where we didn’t know if it was on hiatus or canceled. Luckily for us, Community is set to come back this week. Check out this trailer for a peak at the craziness.

It is hard to say how happy this show makes me. I’m getting increasingly invested in the lives of the minor characters. Especially Leonard, I love that old bastard and his frozen pizza reviews.

Mass Effect 3: Where are you Shepard?

Before I get started, I just want to say that there are no spoilers for Mass Effect 3 in the following piece. Please let’s make sure they stay out of the comment too. Between Old Republic, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect I’ve talked a lot about BioWare on this site. The internet likes to complain about their games a lot lately. I’m in a minority, I liked Dragon Age 2. I recognize the problems with the game, but I still enjoyed it. I’m currently 20+ hours into the single player portion of ME3 and while I love the game so far, I was extremely disappointed with the first 5 minutes of the game.

There is currently an issue with Mass Effect that if you created your Shepard with a custom face way back in Mass Effect 1 that the face will not carry over to Mass Effect 3. You’re pretty much left to try to recreate your face from memory. This probably sounds like a minor gripe, but I don’t think it is. One of the major points of Mass Effect is crafting your own story over the games. Decisions you made in the first game carry over into the third. I take a long time with my play throughs. I could easily say that adding my play time from ME1 and ME2 together is 100 hours.

I have a really hard time understanding how that wasn’t caught before the game was launched. I’m not angry. I’m not demanding anyone’s job or anything. I re-created a face that is passable to the one I used before and I’m enjoying the rest of the game. I am disappointed though. The excitement of the midnight launch quickly faded when I ran into the error.  I know BioWare says they are working on a fix for the issue. It’s too late for my first playthrough, hopefully it will be working when I’m ready for my next Shepard.

Flash Friday: Jay and The Daly Superheroes

Happy Flash Friday everyone! My enthusiasm for DC comics took another hit this week with the reveal of the new Jay Garrick costume design. The hints that were coming out of DC was that Earth 2 was going to be different than what we’ve already seen and…darker. That’s just what I wanted to hear about something that is obviously named to tie into Golden Age characters.

The picture is above. I’m really not a fan of the design, but I have to be honest and say I may change my mind after seeing a few more pictures of it. I doubt I'll change my mind about the helmet, Jay's was perfection.  Anyway after something like that, I need a laugh. Luckily Shelton Films has recently released an incredibly funny short called “The Daly Superheroes”. Check it out.

I know that it doesn’t seem like this would fit Flash Friday, but I promise it does.  Next Flash Friday will be more upbeat, I've gotten a few things in the mail lately.

Hangover Thursday: Choklat

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? I’ve been putting in some heavy duty hours aboard the Normandy lately, defending the universe from Reapers and all that. I’ve still been able to some time in at the new World of Beer in my area though. At the bar I’ve had a few old favorites, but I’ve been trying some new things too. Without a doubt my favorite has been Southern Tier Brewing Company’s Choklat Stout.

Served in a sifter you can smell this beer as soon as it is placed in front of you. It has this rich, chocolate smell that sets the tone for the rest of the experience. It pours nice and black, like you’ve got a glass of coffee in front of you. That smell carries over into the taste. It’s a smooth drink that has a bit of a bitter after taste, but that is to be expected with an Imperial Stout.

All that chocolate is hiding a real knockout punch too, an abv of 11%. You could do some damage if you were knocking these back quickly. You want to take your time and enjoy this beer; it’s worth your time. Southern Tier has two more stouts I need to track down. One is a coffee stout and the other mixes the Java and Choklat. I’m sure you’ll be hearing about it when I try them.

Max Overacts On Sale Now!

Max Overacts, the fantastic webcomic created by Caanan Grall is something we’ve talked about a lot on this site. We call Caanan an honorary member of team F’ing Monkey because he is the person who designed our mascot Punch. That means anything Caanan puts out, I’m going to promote as much as I possibly can.

Way back in August I had pointed everyone towards the fundraising page so Caanan could print the first volume of Max comics. If you donated enough to get a book, you’re in luck. The books have left the printer and should start shipping sometime in Mid-March. If you didn’t donate during the fundraiser, you can go to the Occasional Comics store and pre-order your copy now!

In case you can’t tell, I feel pretty strongly about this book. If you haven’t read any of Max Overacts, check out the Occasional Comics website. I honestly can’t imagine anyone not wanting a collected edition after they start reading it.

Gone Reaper Hunting!

It’s time to take back the Earth!  Mass Effect 3 is out today.

If you see this image then one of three things is currently happening:

1. I’m currently taking the fight to the Reapers and gathering galactic allies.

2. I’m currently responding to a global threat in co-op with my Engineer. If this is what I’m doing, there is a good chance I’m also yelling “Go for the eyes Boo!” as I launch my Combat Drone.

3. After playing since I got back from the midnight release, I’ve fallen asleep. If the Galaxy Map still plays the same music while you are in it, it is very possible I’ve fallen asleep while looking at what planet to travel to next.

Doth Marcellus Of Wallace Resemble A Wench?

Quentin Tarantino is often said to write dialog well. Sometimes he goes way overboard, I am looking at you "Death Proof". William Shakespeare is even more well know for a mastery of words. When a clever person combines the two you end up with pure spun gold.

I know that is a long clip, but well worth your time.

I also have a bit of site news. Ken and I did a test recording for That F'ing Monkey Podcast. We still need to work out a kink or two, but you can look forward to listening to our dulcet tones in the very near future.

Under the Gun

I’ll be the first to admit that my musical tastes are spread all over the map. I also tend to fall in love with bands that tend to dissolve after an album or two (you have no idea how much I’d love another Famous Monsters CD). For some reason punk songs with a female singer really seem to put me in a happy place. I can’t explain it really; and it doesn’t matter if it is pop-punk or hardcore. It just makes me smile.

I’ve been smiling a lot this week because I just got the new Tijuana Sweetheart CD in the mail. Under the Gun is third full album by the band and I can happily report that it kicks ass. If you’re unfamiliar with Tijuana Sweetheart you may have heard of them when they were Vagiant, or Vagiant Boston. They are responsible for the songs “FTK” and “Seven” in Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

There is some experimenting with styles on Under the Gun. Some of the songs have more of a poppy sound and then the next has a solid metal feel. There are harmonies coming through that weren’t there on the other two albums. The band’s sense of fun hasn’t gone anywhere. Seriously, you can’t hear an amped up version of the Heathcliff cartoon theme and not smile.

Also there is a cover of “Astrozombies.” I know, I know, another Misfit cover. Don’t worry about that. It’s amazing. Like slow dancing with your sweetheart at a 50’s soda fountain. You’ll understand when you hear it. So go check the girls out and get some new music. Of course if this is the first time you're hearing about them, don't forget their first two albums Public Display of Infection and Trash Candy.

Flash Friday: Flash Tots

Happy Flash Friday everyone! Today we are going back to the land of fast food toys. You may have already heard that Sonic is giving away plush tater tots dressed like superheroes in their kid’s meals. You didn’t misread that, plush tater tots dressed like superheroes. I was very lucky that my wife went to Sonic the first day of the promotion and had the workers digging through the boxes for a Flash Tot.

So here we have the Flash tot. The design of it seems to be based on the Justice League cartoon. The ear wings and the Flash symbol are very similar to the designs used in that show. It doesn’t show up extremely well in the picture, but the body is actually textured with tiny rough patches, to make it better resemble a tater tot. The Flash Tot has legs but no arms. Actually all of the tots are set up that way. It’s a strange design choice but very cute.

The plush tots are pretty tiny, I’ve used my Kapow! Flash for a sense of scale here. This probably works to their advantage though, I’m pretty sure part of the charm is the size. The rest of the line is pretty Superman centric. There is Clark Kent, Superman, Supergirl, and the only villain in the line Bizzaro. Tots not belonging to the Super-family are Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, Aquaman, and Plastic Man. Look out though, because there is also a pack of trading cards.

There isn’t a whole lot you can say about a plush tater tot dressed like the Flash, so this week’s Flash Friday is a pretty short one. Have a great weekend everyone.

Hangover Thursday: Man Tables

It’s Hangover Thursday, how’s your head? Mine is currently clear. I had planned to go drinking last night but there was a last minute switch-a-roo and it looks like I’ll be going out for drinks tonight. That’s okay though, I need my wits about me this morning because we’re doing this Hangover Thursday like mother fucking gentlemen. Today we’re talking about a piece of furniture that will keep you within arm’s reach of your favorite beer without looking like you live in a frat house.

Enter the Man Table. Man Tables take Amish crafted end tables and turn them into beer coolers. This is something important people. This is a level of sophistication far above the beer fridge out in the garage or on the patio. This is a stylish piece of furniture right next to your favorite couch or recliner. This is no one but you knowing you have a six pack chilled and ready whenever you want it.

I’m seriously impressed with this idea. The table comes in three finishes; Tobacco, Espresso, and Black. They’ll also run you between 329 and 359. When looking at that figure it is important to remember that the price includes the refrigerator. Some of the mini-fridges I’ve looked at come close to that cost by themselves.

Since I don’t own one of these masterpieces, I’ve shamelessly used pictures from their own gallery. Make sure you go to their website and check them out for yourself. I’ve got to go figure out how to convince my wife we need a new end table.
