Okay, I’m a little bummed that the popular posts for Pulpconnection in 2012 were posts written before 2012. So what were the highlights that actually actually transpired in 2012? The top ten for 2012 looks like this. Buyer Beware the TVPad I Want to Draw the Linsanity! Belkin Grip Candy Sheer Black and Green Making […]
This is why me and my (lack of) willpower needs to stay away from kicks web sites â€” the Nike LeBron X Prism.
Waimanalo has its own unique community no more evident than in its annual Christmas Parade. It was my first time attending this parade (I didn’t know it existed before this), and I got to see a good, old parade reminiscent of small kid time. Luckily, our family was guests on the float sponsored by Waimanalo […]
From our neighbors in the north comes the Nintendo Wii Mini. Yes, mini, and it’s only available in Canada. The Mini is a stripped down Wii removed of all online features. But at $99 and still able to play over 1400 disc-based Wii games, the Wii Mini shouldn’t be overlooked. Well, if you can get […]

Only 5000 of these special cards will be forged and sold through gilt.com for a mere $450. But don’t worry, $400 of the cost is […]
I’m not sure what to make of the silhouette of the newly announced Air Jordan XX8. From initial pictures, I’d say these will be worn by ninjas, by fishermen (they remind me of tabi), or by Snake Eyes from G.I. Joe. Eight inches tall, a zip up upper, responsive, light, and expensive at $250 a […]
After a day of continuous eating and giving thanks followed by a night of Black Friday (online) shopping and story watching, there is only one way to stir your morning coffee – with a Twinkie.
It’s been a long journey for the Kickstarter-powered Juicies project. Started in 2011, Juicies goal was to bring colorful cables made out of recycled materials to the iPhone market. The colors were delicious, the price was right, and hey, Laurens from Hawaii was behind it all so why not back this project? Then there was […]
I have a new advent calendar this year, thanks to the prospective demise of Hostess. Enjoy one golden sponge cake each and every day of December leading up to Christmas. Who needs Christmas with a Twinkie a day? Wonder if these Twinkies advent calendars would sell on eBay?
Starbucks is back at it in 2012, commemorating the Twelve Days of Christmas their way. Here’s what I think is Starbucks 12 Days of Gifting for December 2012. Day 1. Buy any tumbler or mug and get a free grande beverage. Day 2. Buy any VIA Ready Brew 12-pack and get one free. Buy any […]
