Otafuku and Octopus Balls!

otafuku

I was just at the Otafuku restaurant (click link for directions) located by St. Marks last night and ordered what they're known for...Their octopus balls! Not too shabby for $5. It's quite filling and it's a pretty popular place for a hole-in-the-wall. It's cramped inside and it's not meant to be eaten there because there are no seats other than a bench outside (as seen above) that can fit no more than three people.

This takoyaki was awesome! For you readers who don't know what that is, it's a japanese dumpling fried and made of batter. In this case there was octopus in it! It was so delicious and it exploded with flavor. It was covered in bonito flakes (fish flakes). At first I confused the bonito flakes for onion peels, but sweet dang this was definately worth the $5 (that my girlfriend paid).

Kingston 64 GB Flash Drive.

I just posted earlier today about a 16 gb flash drive I just ordered. This might be old news to some but new news to many, did you know they had 64 gb flash drives? You can buy one for $115.99, that is ridonkulous! Do you know how much 64 gigabytes is? That's like approximately 99 dvd ripped movies! What in the world would someone need 64 gigs for?! That's almost half of the space I have on my laptop!

Bose Headphones.

I bought the Bose in-ear headphones about two weeks ago and just returned them today. They were good headphones, but not good enough that I'd pay $100 for them! They only rest in in your ear and they don't clog em, so if you're the type to like regular headphones and not actually IN ear headphones you might like these. They don't block off any noise and the base of these headphones are CRAZY, the treble isn't that great though. I returned them today and got the Bose around-ear headphones.

These headphones are GREAT! The fact that they are around your ear, they block off a good amount of noise. The treble and bass ratio is good! My only complaint is that the wire is SUPER long and there are some cons the fact that it's around the ear. It'll be hard to listen to music with these while I'm in my bed sleeping or if I'm in the car because I like to sleep with my head on the side!

If you're going to get Bose headphones I recommend you go to an actual Bose store because they give you a 30 day trial, if you don't like em, return em! They also have a year waranty which I was really satisfied with because my main concern was the headphones breaking since I don't really take that much care of my stuff.

Dirty Car Art

Holy Crap. These are incredible!

The usual thing people do when they see a dirty car window is write “Wash Me”, draw a smiley face or maybe draw a big fat penis but Scott Wade does a much more creative thing. He draws incredibly detailed pieces of art.

Check out more pictures of his work on his website.

Oh man these Left 4 Dead valentine’s day cards are so clever.

This is my favorite one:

They’re done by graphic artist Alexandria Neonakis who works for a video game development company in Nova Scotia.

You all know those Valentine’s day candy hearts. They taste kind of weird and have these cute messages on them. Here’s another take on those candy hearts. And they’re awesomeeee.

They were made by ACME Heart Maker. You can make your own!
