Attention All You Tetris Fans

I found two great things for you.

The first is an actual game you can play on the internet called Pootris.

(Pootris = Poo + Tetris.)

It's totally gross, but kind of addictive. It's also one of those things you should forward to every guy you know, because they'll no doubt think it's the greatest thing ever.

From the Pootris website...

It's toilet time, and you're about to explode. Unfortunately, taking a dump is a little more challenging than it used to be. You'll have to get the pipes from the toilet to the sewer, or you could experience some seriously smelly overflow in this Tetris/Pipedream hybrid game."
Warning: if you're at work, you might want to turn down the volume on your computer. The website plays really obnoxious music.

The second thing I found is a video of a Japanese game show called "Human Tetris."

Enjoy!

Everyone, Please Meet Fashion Public

Bored with mainstream fashion that's produced for the masses?

So is my beautiful and brilliant friend Jill, the brains behind what will soon be every fashionista's favorite shopping website... fashionpublic.com.

Fashion Public is an online marketplace where customers can purchase boutique apparel and accessories directly from the designers who create them.

They're having a SAMPLE SALE in LONDON this Saturday, May 11th. Click the flier below for details and to RSVP.


PS... Jill was featured in an article in The Observor a couple weeks ago about female entrepreneurs.

THE E-RETAILER, JILL SIMON, ONLINE FASHION RETAILER -- American-born entrepreneur Jill Simon will launch fashionpublic.com, an online marketplace for independent fashion brands, in Britain this autumn... The retailer will target trendy individuals who don't follow the fashion pack.

'It's not Gucci, Pucci or Prada we'll be selling,' she says. 'This is for women who reject mass-market fashion.'

The website will provide designers with a route to market, without the overheads, in exchange for a commission on goods sold. Simon has been working with Sally Heale, an experienced fashion scout who has worked with store s such as Henri Bendel and Saks in the US. So far 150 brands have signed up. Simon says 80% of them have a proven track record, while the remainder will be newcomers breaking through.
