- $46 teen vampire angst. Amazon.com has The Twilight Saga Box Set Hardcover Collection for $45.65 with free shipping. (via DealNews)
- iTunes free download. This week’s free iTunes download from Empire of the Sun sounds very retro, and isn’t really something I’d pay money for. But if you happen to like the Bee Gees, you might like the song “Walking on a dream”. And, hey, it’s free.
Odds and Ends:
- $20 raver’s delight. HandHeldItems.com has the LED Sound Activated EQ T-Shirt, a T-shirt with an embedded graphic equalizer, for $24.99, but coupon code “ledshirts” brings the price to $19.99 with $5.95 for shipping. The shirt looks like it’d be a great conversation starter, but could be a little bit annoying if a date were wearing it. Thankfully, you can shut the thing on or off (the shirt, not your date, sorry). Or, if you wanted to point out how shrill the other person you’re talking to is, you can subtly do so by turning this sucker on. Check it out in action!
If you didn’t catch the subtle, pop-culture reference in the heading for the item above, I recommend you also check this out.
