At the end of the day I love to relax, and burn one down. Ya know, a nice candle. And over the Thanksgiving holiday I picked up this MALIN+GOETZ Cannabis scented number at recent Store Spotlight, Portland Dry Goods Co. For me, it has everything I'm looking for in a bowl of wax: an intoxicating, seductive fragrance (citrus, pepper, patchouli), long-lingering effects, and a serious burn time (60 hours). Sadly, it doesn't give me the munchies (dude's gotta eat); it is, however, street legal.

Attention gadget enthusiasts and music lovers! An innovative piece of technology was recently released that is sure to delight you: it’s called the Audio Bulb, and is a wireless speaker system with a really nice twist to it (pun intended). These speakers don’t just look like a light bulb, they actually work like one: a light bulb that caters to your ears rather than your eyesight.
These uber-stylish wireless speakers actually attach to a light-bulb socket and draw power from it. After you’ve installed a set of up to eight audio bulbs across your room or house, you effectively get a discreet stereo system that can work with your iPod or other wireless-enabled audio devices, including any older and even slow pc (provided it has wi-fi). Besides looking quite slick, this solution works great for anyone living in a small house, as well as those who favor minimalist decoration.
No need to drill wires or think about the least obtrusive placement for your audio system. With the Audio Bulb, you get a very elegant audio system that delivers an impressive sound quality… not to mention how the overal effect as well as the ambiance created by these innovative speakers really is pretty cool. A really good idea from GiiNii, that works surprisingly well! Pick up a few – HERE.
