Bloody Brain Shots... um okay :-)

A little out of the ordinary for our site... but what the heck, it's Halloween, and this is so awesome!!! Thanks to Geekologie I found this cool recipe for all you kids... above 21 that is, to try at your festive party tonight, and talk about a total gross out, guarenteed people will be talking about this shot at work around the water cooler on Thursday, have fun with this one folks, and be safe!
Bloody brain shooter
1 1/4 oz. strawberry vodka such as Stoli
1/8 oz. Rose's lime juice
3/4 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
Splash of grenadine
Preparation: Chill vodka for better smoothness. Add vodka and lime juice to a shaker, shake and strain into a shot glass. Using a straw, dip some Bailey's Irish Cream into the shot. Once you submerge the straw into the Bailey's put your finger on top of the straw to hold the Bailey's in the straw. Dip the straw tip into the vodka and slowly release your top finger. The Bailey's will curdle a little bit due to the lime juice and you should be able to make strands of Bailey's.
Repeat the straw/Bailey's process to build a "brain" in the shot glass. Add a splash of grenadine to the concoction to add the 'blood' to the mix. Down the hatch as a shot.
Alternatively, have a friend hold a shot of Bailey's in their mouth and then add one of lime juice and swish it around. Cement mixer! Puke! Lose a friend! This was courtsey of brain shots [folkinz]Via Bloody Brain Shooters [neatorama]

NagNagNag × Jyarinco's "Jinmenken" custom creatures at Мишка's DCon Booth!

You don't need to believe in the Japanese urban legend of the "Jinmenken"(人面犬), or human faced dog, to lust after the soft vinyl interpretation of the beast as done by K•K, the owner of Jyarinco. Having only debuted earlier this year, K•K's "Jinmenken" is already getting the full treatment as Shigeru Arai of NagNagNag hand-paints three unique versions of this figure for Mishka's Designer Con Booth #208. Needless to say, these versions will probably sell very quickly and for a rather large sum.

AVAILABLE NOW: Ghost BC × Vannen's limited edition watches! Some signed!

As perviously announced, Vannen has partnered with the Swedish symphonic metal band Ghost (a.k.a. Ghost BC) to release a watch based on the band's mysterious & horrific identity. The watch itself is a tad simple for my taste, being a pure black beauty with the band's logo emblazoned on the face, but the packaging is killer. And a few random watch sleeves will be signed by lead singer Papa Emeritus II! Available for pre-order now in Vannen Watches's online shop, these are limited to 150 pieces for $65 each. Hurry up and snag yours, as these are sure to disappear fast… then reappear on eBay at highly inflated prices.

Emilio Subirá's "Johnny paint me motherf***er: Living Dead" custom figure!

Using his own "Johnny paint me motherf***er" D.I.Y. platform figure, which we revealed HERE and remains one of the coolest self-made D.I.Y.s out there (in my opinion), Emilio Subirá has created the one-of-a-kind (OOAK) art piece entitled "Johnny paint me motherf***er: Living Dead!" Adding the zombie element to his Renaissance sculpture meets junk toy meets artistic canvas character, Subirá has created a unique and fun 17cm (~6¾-inch) tall work of art. Available now in Subirá's online shop for €120 (approx. $151)!
