sip-sip-bang - the children's Gun Mug

I'm just cruising the Junk Pirate Archives this week and bringing out some classics from years and locations past. Not that there isn't a huge backlog of amazing recent items that need to come to light. I figured it would be fun to relive some traumatic donations and moments from back in the day.

Children's gun mug.
Cause it's never to early to get used to the great feeling of a firearm in your hand.

Increased Productivity

A working portable DVD player. With AC power adapter. 
Yeah. That'll up the productivity around here. Now, if somebody would just donate a Blu-Ray player we could get this party started.

Vintage Vibrators

A quick glance through the Junk Pirate Archives unearthed this old photo of our collection of vintage vibrators. Guaranteed to get you where you need to go.

Junk Pirate News

I just realized this blog is over 1 year old now! Awesome.
With over 125 posts! Hot damn.
Please keep the comments coming. Or don't. I like them but really I do this for me.
Just for the hell of it here is a photo of the Heap from the Junk Pirate Archives:

In other news, the 2nd Junk Pirate Art Exhibition has been confirmed! It will be in Oakland (venue to be announced later) in March 2010. Here's a photo from the last show in late 2006:

Heat Zone

The first skateboard I ever owned was a Nash Heat Zone. Just like this one that was recently donated, except mine was neon pink and didn't have the rails or a tail block or anything. Man, that was a crappy skateboard, but I was pretty psyched to get it for my birthday back when I was 8 or 9. I never really rode it that much and didn't actually learn skate until I got a street deck when I was 15 or so. Still, in the unlikely event that I'm being interviewed in a skating context and somebody asks me about my first skateboard, I'm gonna have to tell the truth: "Heat Zone".

What's a good Euphemism for "Dildo"...

The fact that an arts and educational non-profit resale store can amass this collection of dildos, vibrators, and other unmentionables from their daily donations is just all sorts of fucked. 
And this doesn't even include the vintage vibrators that at least have the decency to look less like a penis and more like a giant power drills that strap to your hands.

M.U.S.C.L.E. Men

Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere. Tiny, 2" wrestling monster figurines in molded pink PVC gum, based on some Japanese anime or something. I really liked these things when I was 8 years old, and here they are again. My favorite was this little mohawk dude I called "Little Joe":

And apparently they were also available in other colors, although I only remember the pink ones.

I also really liked the M.U.S.C.L.E. Nintendo game. One of the better wrestling games out at the time.
You can get more info on these guys on wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M.U.S.C.L.E.
