This Camera is Shaped Like a Juice Box

aab2dfe2-26e9-4000-b613-9bc17882ed98

High-tech cameras are going retro. Camera geeks can “go old school” with these toy cameras that look like little juice boxes. Because sometimes twenty-something hipsters want to pretend they’re small children too. Not creepy.

The Juice Box camera works like a Lomo or Diana camera (you know, the retro cameras a la Urban Outfitters).  It uses 35 mm film and comes in whatever “flavor” suits your mood. There are many different options, but they mostly fall into one of two themes: French cartoons or Ikea-inspired Swiss minimalism.

A fun part of the camera features a nifty on/off button.  You turn the “straw” at the top of the box to reveal the lens, turn it back to close the lens, and can lock the camera so you don’t take photos without film (or when the camera’s tossing around in your lunchbox).

So foodie photographers, would you trade in your Instagrams for a hidden juice box?

Sailor Moon Brooch Cookies Have Stained Glass Gems

MOON. COOKIE. POWERRRR!

Unfortunately these cookies won’t transform you into a Sailor Scout (aw WHAT?!)  but they will satisfy your nostalgic sweet tooth. Crafted by a pretty creative tumblr user, these stained glass cookies are simple to make, provided you have some patience and a love for the Moon Princess.

Using a printed image as a template to recreate these cookies is as easy as tracing a picture… just with a knife (so be careful, kids!) After all that’s said and done, grab favorite red-tinted hard candies, crush ’em up and fill in the gaps. Personally I’m a fan of jolly ranchers but to each their own. You’ll have Sailor Moon Brooch Cookies faster than you can say “Moon tiara magic!”

If you want to really nail these cookies try adding some yellow food color to your sugar cookie dough to get that golden hue of Serena’s transformation brooch.

Mario ‘Beerio’ Kart Might Be The Greatest, Nerdiest Drinking Game Ever

Screen Shot 2013-08-14 at 10.05.27 PM

Now, I’ve seen some pretty epic drinking games but I can only imagine how insane things get when you mix cheap beer with Mario Kart.

Think about it. The game is already hard to play sober. Plus, something changes in people when they play Mario Kart. Your friends are now laughing maniacally as they shoot Bullet Bills and leave a trail of banana peels for you to slip on. Not to mention you have Wario on your ass with Bowser waiting just around the corner to blast that damn spiny shell at you just as you slide into first place. But to play this seemingly innocent racing game while drunk off your ass? Nope. Kiss Rainbow Road goodbye.

The rules are simple:

1) Dust off your N64 and find your Mario Kart 64 cartridge. Yes kids, in the old days we had to play our video games on cartridges, none of that fancy CD ish.

2) Get some beer. Make sure it’s something you like because you’ll be spending some quality time with it.

3) Grab some pals and start up the game. Once you’ve all picked your characters and course, it’s time to get down to business.

Check out the run down below:

Make sure you play this with some friends though, because playing Beerio Kart solo is basically geeky alcoholism.
