This male torso shaped baking form is sold together with a baking mix and will allow anyone to easily transform the provided ingredients into a delicious piece of Adonis. Even if definitely far more useful than the iDuck, – at least you get to eat a cake - I would still “tag” this item as funny-but-useless.
And of course there is also a female version of the baking form, just to please everyone’s taste.
Available for €19.95 at design-3000, a German online store.
Mia's stylemaker page on Glam.com is up. Our partnership with Glam gives Mia the opportunity to talk about her love of technology and her love of cosmetics in the same excited breath. Among her current recommendations: the Samsung sports digital camera, and Jaqua body butter chocolat (and wouldn't it be lovely to see these two gifts in the same shiny holiday package?). Her style recommendations for Glam readers -- everything from mp3 players to denim skirts -- will be updated regularly, along with recommendations from Bobbi Brown, Phillip Bloch, and many other stylemakers gracing the pages of Glam.
Residents of Lincoln Heights Los Angeles are pissed about what they suspect is a corporate graffiti campaign sponsored by Sony to promote the PSP. Other flickr users claim to have spotted the same PSP-centric stencils in Silver Lake (LA) and San Francisco.
Lincoln Heights resident Michelle writes:
Is anyone else concerned that Sony Playstation paid someone to vandalize our neighborhood to sell their latest toy, the PSP? I called the city today to have the stencils on the back of Juan's Market painted over. For some strange reason, I'd rather see my friendly local gang lay claim to that wall then have it given over to some crappy corporation and their urban marketing campaign.
The stencils are of these ugly cartoon with messed up eyes all holding PSPs. It's quite obviously an advertisement, but when I called Playstation Consumer Services this morning, they claim to know nothing about the campaign. I guess there's just some clever youngster out here in LH that just really LOVES the PSP and wants the whole world to know about it...
Anyhow, if the "urban marketing" bugs you too, and you don't want Playstation to set an example to other faceless corporations that take big consumer craps in our backyard, give them a call and ask them what their take on graffiti is:
Sony Computer Entertainment America
PO Box 5888
San Mateo, CA 94402-0888
M-SAT 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. PST
Sunday 7:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m
Have you seen these in your neighborhood too?
UPDATE TWO: Sony has been paying some store owners for the right to advertise on their walls. That could explain why LA city workers painted around and not over the PSP stencils on Juan's Market in Lincoln Heights.
