Charity Junked

I forgot to mention that, due to what I believe are called "factors", there will be no more Charity Junk. it's been short-lived fun.

I'm glad, however, that it was enjoyed!

After the most significant dry spell since someone put an R between a D and a Y, here is classic charity junk. To whit, a shoddy product with a lame and fairly incongruous pun attached. Perhaps they are implying that use of this can make you as attractive as the stars of television's Buffy The Vampire Slayer such as Sarah Michelle Gellar, Marc Blucas and Vincent Schiavelli (as he is today).

Dang - I did an upload here, but the image has glitched up a storm on my phone and is, in fact, knackered. Sorry!

While I'm here, allow me to apologise for the lack of updates. Charity Junk is, obviously, reliant on the junk aspect and sometimes people just don't donate completely stupid rubbish. So please do bear with me.

Pay particular attention to the dude at the back.

"Cat Montage Tile"

Apparently from the gift shop of The British Museum, this catfest is clearly designed to be used as a coaster, but it's still tempting to buy a load and decorate your bedroom with it and settle down to experience the kinds of nightmares that must have plagued Louis Wain.

Bog Roll Terror

Investigation of this terrifying sod revealed it to be a toilet roll holder, with roll included. Considering the physical reaction induced by those black eyes of nothingness, the toilet is probably the best place for it.

Especially for You...

Today, in honour of the birthday of actor LeVar Burton, here's a poptastic Kylie mug. One sip from which will turn you irrevocably gay. For 50p.

Irving Wallace Special #2: The Prize

This one's about the Nobel Prize which, I don't know about you, always fills my mind with images like the one on the cover*.

Eagle-eyed readers may now be expecting #3: The Plot, but we don't have that. So bad luck.

*which presumably depicts the winner of that year's No Bra Prize.

Irving Wallace Special #1: The Man

In the largely forgotten genre of "not tremendously exciting political thrillers with largely unrelated and mildly sexy covers" comes this tale of the first black US President.

Incidentally, this was adapted into a movie in 1972 starring James Earl Jones and as such was the subject of THIS amazing review by Vincent Canby (edit: sadly long since put behind a paywall) which I recommend reading even if you have no plan to ever see the film, it's just a great bit of writing.

And God Said, Let There Be...

...a really ugly chandelier, and there was a really ugly chandelier, and it was really heavy and made me hurt my back and shoulders. Also, no sod's ever going to buy it.

Be Beautiful

How can you ever bear to live knowing that this book exists and you do not own it? We can never be beautiful without it.
