Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Music, Videos

Guitar Hero IIIPoor Isaac. His dad caught him smoking pot in his backyard with a couple of buds and decided to punish him by selling his Guitar Hero III on eBay. The Canadian father went into detail about the circumstances surrounding the acquisition of the Wii game in the first place and offered to be talked out of it, but apparently the thought of the $9,100.01 bid was too much of a temptation and turned him into a Scrooge.

Who Needs Blue Suede Shoes When You Can Own the King’s Caddy?

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Transportation

Elvis Caddy

Elvis’ Estate has decided to sell a piece of the King that he personally customized. His 1965 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible is up for auction by Daniel Schmitt & Company through December 15 on eBay at a starting bid of $119,900.00. Co-created by Kustom King George Barris, the vehicle features 40 coats of gold paint, a gold-upholstered interior with guitar-shaped sun visors, and gold records mounted into the tonneau cover.

There is even low-rate financing available with payments of $1,220.00 with a down payment of $24,000.00. Unfortunately, the Caddy wasn’t finished until after Elvis’ death, but we are sure he have would said, “Thank ya vera much.” We think it is worth the price just for the tacky puffy dice on the rear view mirror.

Futuro House Available for Non-Aliens

FuturoNow is your chance to live in your own flying saucer. The Futuro House was designed in 1968/69 with a height of 500 cm, a diameter of 800 cm and a weight of 2200 kg. Made of glass fibre, it was meant to be mass produced inexpensively by the year 2000. It features 20 windows and a door with a flap that becomes a staircase and can be moved by helicopter. Made by Finnish metal worker Abloy Suomi, it was on sale at Christies in Paris November 27 but failed to bring in the expected quarter of a million dollars. We suspect that if you could come up with a figure close to that, they might be willing to let it go.

Designed for simplified transactions between the two countries, this means that not only will the Japanese be able to bid on the Terminator Endoskeleton, but Americans will also be able to get a hold of some of those items that are only available in that country. The service should be up and running by the end of March 2008 and, depending on its outcome, may be offered in other countries.
