Own A Piece of Ozzy

Zakk Wylde GuitarWe suppose that things are moving slowly for the Osbourne family as they are holding an auction at Julien’s in Beverly Hills as well as online this week. You can participate real time on the Auction Network if you can’t be there yourself. Bid on Ozzy’s Yamaha motor bike, a pair of his wire rim glasses, his Yellow Submarine Jukebox, or his Bentley Flying Spur. Also up on the block is the dress Sharon wore to meet the Queen and Zakk Wylde’s Signature Les Paul Custom Guitar. A portion of the proceeds are expected to go to Sharon’s Colon Cancer Foundation.

Gauche Gift of the Week

Jukebox Lamp/iPod DockWe have seen iPod docks for playing and charging, mini-jukeboxes that flash and whir, FM tuners, alarms clocks, and oddly designed lamps. Combine them together with some built-in speakers and get this rather tacky 8 ½ x 10 ¾ x 20-inch Brookstone gadget, something you might get your Uncle Dennis to show you care, but not really all that much.

We’ve seen all kinds of alarm clocks, FM radios, lamps, iPod docks, and jukeboxes in our comings and goings. But have you ever seen anything that combines all of these into one?

gaudiest

centerpiece of whatever room it’s in. Perfect for the person who really has everything. Available for $99 USD.
