Four Little Piggies, starring Louis Logic and featuring J-Zone, details the story of a toy crane machine salesman trying to locate his missing finger at a bowling alley after a wacky encounter with the daughter of a prospective client.

Do you remember To Kill A Mockingbird? With child characters Jem and Scout Finch, placed during the Great Depression in Alabama? Their father, an attorney, was defending a Black man who was accused of raping a white women. Their town and neighbors all had “screw faces” about his choice to take the case and people started calling the Finch Family “nigger-lovers”…

Well the women of BAAD! Ass Women is having an open discussion tonight, in the Bronx, about the use of the “n” word in the banned novel by Harper Lee, in harmony with Women’s History Month.

This went up yesterday and made its circuit around the blogosphere but it looks too amazing not to post so check it out here.

Dress Up Your Junk

25 Mar

By now I’m sure you’re familiar with the phrase “no glove, no love”. But have you grown tired of your plain ole Lifestyles? Well if you and your honey are looking for a more aesthetically pleasing sheath, look no further than the French Letter Condom Company Ltd.

The British company offers condoms in red and yellow, studded and ribbed for extra stimulation, or in a variety of scents including vanilla and passion fruit. Each little raincoat comes in a shiny silver wrapper (like candy!) and they’re sold in beautifully designed boxes by the dozen.

What makes French Letter condoms even more awesome is that the company uses Fair Deal Trading. This means that workers on the rubber plantation are paid a fair wage and royalties from the condom sales go towards ensuring that they have health benefits and pensions. And, the condoms are completely vegan (no animal products)!

Of course, they are a little more pricey than your basic pack from the pharmacy. But if you’re willing to shell out  £8.99 ($13.20), you can find the couture coverings at frenchlettercondoms.co.uk or ethicalsuperstore.com

$30 socks?

25 Mar

I love a nice pair of socks. I really do. Anyone who has shopped with me on a regular basis knows that I will go out of my way for cute socks. But for damn near $30? Idk, man…

Regardless, the Spring/Summer ’09 Collection by Hansel from Basel is undeniably charming. And if you enter code dailycandy before you add each item to your cart, you’ll get 25% off..woo!

P.S. my birthday is in May…

Working Out: Tip of the Day

25 Mar


Everything in moderation!

Many people feel that consuming large amounts of protein will increase the body’s ability to develop muscle. In reality, there is no evidence that excess amounts of protein contribute to increases in strength and size. Consuming more protein than the body is able to assimilate will result in the protein being converted to fat.

Careful people!!! Too much of anything is bad for you. You have to keep a balance between diet, supplements, and exercise.

Peek email-only handsets.

25 Mar

Got 4 friends and loads of emails?

A new product, Peek handsets, are now available. This device is clearly for those who arent CrackBerry addicts without mobile e-mail devices. At $30 a handset, the catch is that you have to buy 5! But at only $20 a month with no contract, I think this is a pretty good deal.

For anymore info on this product, check out the Peek website.
