Genius business model = I Wear Your Shirt

In this up and down economy, there are a select few who are either bigtime stoners or flat out geniuses. I have a feeling Jason, founder of encompasses a little of both. For the entire 2009 calendar year, he’s outsourcing his wardrobe (namely shirts) to corporate america and you. He’s wearing a different shirt for 365 days straight, takes multiple pictures throughout the day and blogs about it. Days are sold at “face value” so January 1 is $1 and December 31 is $365. So far, he’s sold out until mid-October. This makes me incredibly happy.

A business card thing of beauty

I’m a big fan of creative business cards and this just made the top of my list.


Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Some fanboy of the Imperial Fleet is selling his entire Star Wars vintage figures collection. Only catch is the asking price ($3,500) is more than the entire Rebel Alliance. As Han says in Episode IV, “I’ve got a very bad feeling about this.” Bonus quote: (I love throwing this one out while waving the hand) “You don’t need to see his identification … These aren’t the droids you’re looking for … He can go about his business … Move along.”  [via Gadget Lab]
