Yes boys and girls, it’s that time of year again: the advent of Cornelia’s Annual Shopping List for Those not Overly Enamored with Holidays, Generally.
1. Steampunk Taxidermy.
New Zealand artist Lisa Black has a new take on the whole “cute baby animals” thing:
Her “Fixed Deer” has been sold, but you could probably commission something equally un-Xmas/Chanukah-esque if this floats your boat.
2. When “Love” just doesn’t cut it:
A mere $19.49 from the good folks at Harnk.
3. Killer Boots
4. Brain-Flavored Zombie Mints
5. Inflatable Fruitcake.
6. Trebuchet Kit
Start your own arms race… in the year 1235. This is a 1/200th scale model, for $189.
7. Hitchcock Barbie
The perfect add-on gift with a pair of budgies. Priceless.
8. Harley-Davidson Ken
Barbie’s Malibu Meth Lab sadly not included…
9. A Salt With a Deadly Weapon Messenger Bag
Come on, is this awesome or what? $46.95
10. Free Tibet* t-shirt
*this offer not valid in China. $20
11. A Jetpack. Finally.
Available in late 2010, for only $100,000. I want it.
12. I Also Want This
First edition. $136,000.
13. But I’d Settle for This:
$85. What a bargain.
14. Nouveau Retro
A limited-edition repro of a classic pulp cover–stretched canvas, 36″ x 48″. $450
15. And This Wouldn’t Suck, Now That I Live in New Hampshire
A sculpture by Peter Grondquist, who also did Chanel grenade launchers and Gucci shotguns and other groovy things for his “The Revolution Will Be Fabulous” show in LA a while back. This one is sold, but I want everything else.
What about you, ‘Ratis? What do you want for a present this year?
