a&o’s newest byproduct: mind-rot.com

With the new year comes a new project by the fine folks of absurdandobscure.com; a site driven by completely unoriginal content not unlike what you would find at a&o. Rather than writing new content, the new site will be a constantly updated collection of content provided by others. It is my esteemed pleasure to introduce to the world…mind-rot.com.

I’m excited about the new project/site/portal to nonsense that will cover the work of innumerable scourges of the Earth at as rapid of a speed as possible. There’s no reason you shouldn’t be excited about it either, especially if you frequent this poor excuse for a blog/site/sounding board of relatively disreputable schlock/sheer awesomeness.

As of today, mind-rot.com is obviously still in the process of becoming completed, but the finishing touches aren’t far off. I’ve wanted to get this thing together for months, but because of reasons too boring to go into, both the new project and a&o had to suffer. I’m sure you pulled through these past couple of months though…just a wild guess from the 13,000 views that absurdandobscure.com received last year. Speaking of, I want to sincerely thank every single person that checked this site out last year. We’re hoping things will be significantly different this year, especially when it comes to digging into the depths of the worst acting caught on film, the best hardcore bands you keep ignoring for the dumbest reasons, brain melting foreign oddities and other indescribably engaging ephemera.

So be sure to check out both sites whenever you get the chance…you never know what absurd and/or obscure stuff might get the honor of being uncovered.

Gundam Unicorn

All these scans are from the new Gundam: The Selection, a catalog in magazine form put out by Dengeki Hobby Magazine. Saying that it’s a catalog might be a little unfair, but this thing has a lot of info on the Gundam 00 (pronounced “double oh”) show, kits, toys and all the other newest non-00 Gundam stuff.

Also, for those Gundam fans that are both rich and on the go, you can now get an official Gundam cell phone and dock, and Gundam luggage. What’s funny is that all of it looks cool.

I’m not kidding.

If these scans aren’t enough, you can get a copy here.

The site for the cell phone is pretty amazing. You don’t need to know Japanese to check it out either…just keep hitting the NEXT button. The page on the Lalabit site for the luggage however, is far less impressive.
