This is definitely not your parents Pooh bear! Threadless has released a new Winnie the Pooh inspired t-shirt that features all of your favorite characters from the Hundred Acre Wood entitled “A Very Naughty Bear.” While this tee is probably not for children, it is a pretty cool reimagining of Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit and Eeyore as vicious, rabid animals. Who would win in a fight between a real life Winnie the Pooh and Tigger is anyone’s guess, but I think we can all agree Eeyore would last longer than Piglet!
French Artist Ohm will be flying across the Atlantic this week to attend San Diego Comic Con and The Blot is pretty excited. To mark the special occasion, Muttpop will be releasing in very limited quantities a SDCC 2009 exclusive set of Puro Edition Tcho! figures. Ohm did the redesigns for the popular Tcho! mini figure series Muttpop released earlier this year and will be on hand throughout the weekend to autograph this new Tcho! colorway.
DKE will be selling a very small amount of complete sets (5 figures plus a bonus figure) of the Tcho! Puro colorway figures at its SDCC 09 booth #4732 for $60. Individual figures will be available for $15 each, with each character sold at a different signing throughout the convention. Best of all, collectors will have five opportunities to get Ohm to customize and doodle on your Puro Edition Tcho! figures. Each character is limited to 50 figures each, so if there is a particular character you want to add to your collection make sure to get to each signing early.
The Ohm/Muttpop San Diego Comic Con 2009 Signing Schedule: Friday, July 24th Toy Qube Booth #4837 at 1pm (Tcho! character Moko) DKE Booth #4732 at 4pm (Tcho! character Malika)
Saturday, July 25th Munky King Booth #4539 at 11am (Tcho! character Jubbei) Rotofugi Booth #4930 at 2pm (Tcho! character Captain Biceps) DKE Booth #4732 at 4pm (Tcho! character Lou)
I could have sworn No Reservations wasn’t returning until August, but much to The Blot’s surprise I just found out Tony comes back tonight with an all new episode! How great is that? Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Season 5, Part 2 premieres tonight, Monday, July 13 on the Travel Channel at 10/9c. This season finds Tony visiting a slew of all new locations including multiple cities throughout the United States, as well as Australia, Sardinia and Thailand. To kick the season off though, Tony travels to Chile.
During Bourdain’s trip to Chile, Tony visits Fuente Alemana, a restaurant serving German pints and Lomidos, a monstrous sandwich of pork, avocado, and mayonnaise. Tony then indulges his obsession with pork by dining at El Hoyo, a restaurant specializing in all forms of pork, pork skin, and extraneous pig bits. If you’re not hungry already, check out this clip from tonight’s episode. In the video Tony stops by Sibaritico's to try a local favorite: a foot-long hot dog drenched in tomatoes, sauerkraut and guacamole in a mega bun.
The episode continues as Tony enjoys a rodeo, some shopping at a bustling market in the Estacion Central and enjoys local specialties such as caldopata (hoof soup), chunchules (fried intestines), and pastel de choco (corn pie).
Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations airs every Monday night at 10/9c on the Travel Channel.
