Fun with Boba

The other day the coolest thing happened. Some lady from Hasbro asked us if we wanted to give away some of the new Star Wars toys, which we kindly accepted.

I know we’re supposed to be giving them away and all that, but it was just too hard, we had to open one Boba Fett Helmet; we resisted it for a whole day but he just keep looking at me.

We all had a turn wearing the helmet, and did a few gag photos of us meandering through our every day work, but wearing the helmet whilst doing so. Crack up. What happened after that was quite disgusting, but nevertheless more entertaining than a few lame shots of us wearing the helmet at our desks.

Introducing, Hayden ‘The Hammer’ Bentley. P.s. It’s Hayden’s 21st on Saturday, so for all Ladies wanting to send in their panties, just drop them off to our store at 302 Great North Rd.

Oh yeah, giveaway to follow next week. And all the toys are brand new, completely clean and sterilized.

Steve keeps the Ajax at arms reach at all times. OCD.

Me. Super Kawaii.

Andy. drinking coffee. like a boss.

Wharehinga. dope bro.

Fett. at the bus stop. lol.

I was going to put something like, "Greetings earthlings" but then I realised that wasn't funny at all. Mel.

Old man Phil got amongst it, before declaring: "it's not practical".

Rob did wees out of his winky. it's so white, almost porcelain, and rumored to have no scent.

Rob offered $50 for Hayden to strip down. Should fund half an hour in town for him.

The Money shot. spread eagle.

You’ve probably seen it by now – but the Auckland City Mission have an awesome campaign running at the moment that we’re proud to be supporting.

The Auckland City Mission think it’s pretty stink how people in poverty suffer. They dedicate their lives to it. They also think it’s super stink how much more people suffer when it’s freezing cold in Winter. They’ve dedicated this week to really helping out people suffering this Winter.

ASB have come to the party in a big way, contributing $40,000 cold hard cash (lol) to the Auckland City Mission. The money’s in the safe; the safe’s in the ice - You can free the safe. Simply txt 305 with your initials and your choice of FIRE, STEAM, OR WATER to melt the safe. then watch it at

We’ve done it, and it’s wicked fun. Here’s a screen shot of our effort. It only came up with MR but, MRV didn’t fit. I’m an idiot.

Do it. It's good and will make you feel a little bit warm and fuzzy inside.

Big ups to all the dudes on twitter helping out too. @Giapo, @UrgentCouriers, @ASBBank, @VodafoneNZ etc… goooood shiiiitttt.

oh and buy the t-shirt too.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I'm calling B-Tak Tamaki.

That's enough Mike Hosking. No one cares for your 5 page spread in the NZ Woman's Weekly. Stop trying to be Hugh Grant. Stop straightening your hair. Stop paying magazines to do shit-house stories on you. Just stop.


I like this on so many levels.

i love stuff in my mouth.

I know how that must sound, but...

Every now and then a blog will come along and just completely blow your mind.

For me, that blog is ‘Stuff in my mouth’. Hearing the name, you’d probably (and perhaps reasonably) assume that this blog is one that carries rather questionable content. Not so.

Over the past year or so this fantastic girl and her fantastic little friend have humoured me with the various little items they’ve found time to photograph in their mouths. The items vary. From 14 Giant Jaffa’s, to 22 pencils, to a Dick Tracy figurine – their witty word play and deadpan expressions have always left me extremely satisfied.

I’ve no recollection of how I stumbled across this blog; I can only praise the heavens that such a miraculous gift came in to my life.

I suggest you try it.

win a NZ Indie Mix Tape USB

The crafty cats over at have done it again. You might have seen their Mint Chicks USB they did a while back, which was sweet. Well... now they've managed to get the top 12 emerging NZ Indie artists together to make one sweet little mix tape. Packaged on this nifty little cassette USB, we're lucky enough to have 2 to give away.

We've decided to make it easy for you, just buy one of these NZ Indie Mix Tape t-shirts that you would've bought anyway - and the first two to purchase them will get themselves a Mix Tape USB.

If you missed out on winning one, you can just buy it here.
