Here’s an interesting way to sell an album. With trips to the record store being more and more of a rare thing, music groups have been finding other ways to market their music. An interesting take is this one by the Rollin Rockers. From the Rollin Rockers comes the Bang!Bang! pill-shaped USB drives. The drives are packaged in a pharmaceutical pill bottle and includes the 10 song Rollin Rockers album “Bang!Bang!”. The USB drives are available online and come in three different colors and three different storage sizes.
For those unfamiliar with Rollin Rockers their sound can be summed up as P-Funk discovering dubstep, Electro and other genres and funking them out with a Hip-Hop appeal. Take a listen!
I think I would prescribe myself these pills.
Entitled “Gold Pills,” these encapsulated 24k gold-leaf flecks fetch $429 and are intended to make you shit gold nuggets (sorry I couldn’t resist). It is the work of New York-based artist Tobias Wong, a self-dubbed “paraconceptualist” who recently passed away. He was just 35. [Mocoloco]
Gold was actually used as a treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis as a gold salt (Gold Sodium Thiomalate). However, it is not a preferred treatment these days.
The predominant action appears to be a suppressive effect on the synovitis (inflammation of the joint lining) of active rheumatoid disease.
Most common side effects are Dermatitis (itching or a rash) and Stomatitis, which can consist of shallow ulcer on the tongue, the palate or in the pharynx. A metallic taste may precede these oral mucous membrane reactions and should be considered a warning signal. A signal that “I’m rich, bitch!”
Going to the local pharmacy to find your favorite over the counter medications can be a trying experience because of all the brands and bright packaging that one can encounter. Well, Help Remedies has come to the rescue. Help Remedies brings a little fun and great package design to the world of OTC medications. It is a funny, yet communicative and well-functional design, and for all you “Green” peeps out there, the boxes are made of corn resin and paper pulps so that they are compostable.
When you check out the website be sure to check out the "hello, I’m bored" section. Funny but importantly…informative!
