Celebrating National Ice Cream Month (Esp. Mint Chip)

July 9, 2009

Happy National Ice Cream Month! Back in the 80s, Reagan made July the month that every America should celebrate by eating a bowl of the cold stuff with all the extra toppings. To do our part, I found some funny ice cream gifts created by Zazzle Sellers to share. I have to admit I am a little biased towards Mint Chip but that’s only because it is the best flavor of ice cream in the world (duh).

What’s your favorite ice cream t-shirts, ice cream gifts, or just ice cream flavor? Share below.

Running Latte Mugs – New Urban Dictionary Zazzle API

July 7, 2009

Check out the latest API partner to join Zazzle, UrbanDictionary.com! Thanks to the power of the Zazzle API, everyone around the world can now get the hilarious and informative (who knows what “running latte” means?) Urban Dictionary quotes on mugs! All you need to do is go to your favorite definition on UrbanDictionary.com and just click on the “get this def on a mug,” button. Screenshot below. Also, here are some of my favorite Urban Dictionary definitions to get you started.

  • om nom: The sound of ravenous eating. Popularized by the character Cookie Monster on Sesame street, it is now used commonly in speech, especially among younger people. Cookie Monster exclaims “OM NOM NOM NOM” when gobbling down cookies (and whatever else goes in his mouth).
  • TMI Turkey: The act of holding up the palm of your hand and spreading out all five fingers, while placing your other hand in the center of the opposite palm with fingers spread, with your thumb sticking straight up resembling a turkey. To explain in hand motion, when someone has given you Too Much Information.
  • ytmnd: Abbreviated version of You’re the man now, dog!, a phrase said by Sean Connery in the movie Finding Forrester. In the internet subculture, however, it refers to a website in which that phrase is repeated over and over. The site is now host to thousands of similar pages which can range from amusing to disturbing, but are almost always stupid.

Zazzle Loves Rock and Roll

July 1, 2009

If you haven’t noticed, Zazzle has recently launched a bunch of stellar new music storefronts, so for all those heading out to MJ tribute parties, be sure to go in style.  Lil Wayne was the most recent artist to sell over 1 million records in a single week with his newest album, the first artist to do so since 50 Cent back in 2005. 

Classic Georgian band The B52’s have a some really cool designs, including my personal fav “The Rock Lobster”.

Woodstock is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, so all you old hippies now turned yuppies, be sure to outfit yourself with some new stuff featuring classic imagery. 

For the classic rock and 80′s hair band lovers, there is no shortage of options in Motley Crue, Yes, Dream Theater, Cinderella, and Gene Simmons

Rod Stewart is in a very select category of men able to rock leopard skin pants and make the ladies swoon, and his store features a lot of great imagery throughout his career. 

Artistic Hub recently launched a design contest for UK-based up-and-comer Iglu & Hartly.  The platform allows for fans to submit designs and then purchase all submissions directly through I&H’s Zazzle store.  Look out for more contests via Artistic Hub coming soon.

Folk Festival celebrates it’s 50th year with a stellar line-up and some great designs.

If you are a fan of Rock Star or Guitar Hero, or were destined to be a rock star, back-up dancer or groupie but never realized your dream, then you know all about US Air Guitar.

Other artist with summer tours and new releases:
Britney Spears 
The Black Eyed Peas
Fergie
Kiss
Jason Mraz

Jam out to any and all artists via AOL Radio, and you can even begin your own online broadcast via Shoutcast Radio.
