The Twelve Days Of Christmas, Day VIII: Pop Culture Items

Today's Day 8! Here are some handpicked pop culture goodies:

Buster Bluth In Blue Painting
Tony Hale (hi, Tony! I love youuuu!) has ruined me. He's so good at playing Buster Bluth* that I can see his face and start laughing. If I woke up to this pop art panel featuring Busty's face every day it would definitely get a giggle from me. Imagine if it were hanging behind the toilet! I wonder if the fact that it's so... blue is a nod to Tobias F√ľnke? There's lots of other affordable pop art goodness at Peachy Apricot, too.

Cassette Tape Night Lights
Old cassette tapes are upcycled into unique and surprisingly pretty night light lamps. Lighted by LED lights, these lamps look retro and coolly modern at the same time. Who knew?

Reservoir Dogs Pencil Set
The theme to oneupdesigns' whole store is clever pop culture kitsch, but what I'm most in love with are the pencil packs, with new designs periodically rotated in and out of the mix. A set of six will run you six bucks, and they riff on anything from Spinal Tap to poorly-executed video game English, but my current favorite is the Reservoir Dogs pack.

Rob Osborne Design Art Prints
Original pop art prints with an unusual take, such as Darth Vader yoga instructions. My favorites are the Wonder Woman pop romance collection, where Superman isn't committing but Batman is certainly ready to step in.

The Rocklopedia Fakebandica
All those bands made just for TV or movies had to end up somewhere and this encyclopedia of fake bands is it. This book not only covers the obvious fakers like the Rutles or Spinal Tap, but it also covers cartoon groups, bands created to sell other products, and the brief appearances of bands that you somehow remember, like that group playing in that bar in Star Wars. You know you want to know their name.

Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Lunchbox
One of my favorite things about starting school as a kid was the new office supplies and stuff we got. And in that category was new lunchboxes because somehow, mine always got just thrashed through out the year.

Vintage Amber Pepsi Cola Glass Goblets
I said to my husband, "Name something pop-culturey that I love. I'm running up on a sudden block." Without hesitation, he answered, "Pepsi. Numbah one." And you know what? He's right. I want a Pepsi right now just writing about it, in fact. I'm not a hardcore memorabilia collector, but over the years I've found Pepsi-related stuff hard to come by... especially in relation to C-word merchandise. All that having been said? Pepsi has always been savvy as hell and ahead of their time from a marketing standpoint. Behold, the Pepsi pimp cup!

*Did you know that Buster isn't the character's first name? It isn't, it's a nickname. Busty's given name is Byron. Byron Bluth!
