Rock 'N' Roll High School: 30th Anniversary Special Edition

(Shout! Factory)

The Ramones play some songs in support of a group of students standing up to their rock 'n' roll-hating principal in this 1979 exploitation movie, part of Roger Corman's Cult Classics series. The 30th-anniversary DVD includes commentary by Corman, a making-of documentary, and audio outtakes of the Ramones practicing all three chords they know.


Bump in the Night:The Complete Series

(Shout! Factory)

This four-disc box includes all 26 episodes of the short-lived 1994-95 claymation series, as well as an hour-long Christmas special. Bump's star is a green monster who lives under the bed and eats dirty socks. His best friend is a squishy blue creature who hangs out in the bathroom. And the greatest episode, "Night of the Living Bread," is about a zombie-like slice of Schwebel's.


It Looks Like a C**k!

(St. Martin's Griffin)

This book — compiled by two guys named Ben & Jack, who apparently have a lot of spare time — gathers dozens of photos of things from around the world that resemble dicks. There's a cactus that looks like a penis. There's a cloud that looks like a penis. That guy kissing a dolphin? Looks like he's kissing a penis, don't it? Can't wait for the inevitable sequel: It Looks Like a C**ter!


Pogo Stylus

(Ten One Design)

I love my iPod Touch. But I hate scrolling through all my apps when I'm eating Cheetos. Gets the screen all slimy and orange. This cool stylus — compatible with the Touch, iPhone, iPad, and virtually anything else you can poke — solves the problem. It also helps if you have fat fingers. Comes in four colors, but Cheeto orange isn't one of them.


Star Wars Head to Head


If you ever wondered who'd win a fight between Jar Jar Binks and Jabba the Hutt, this one's for you. Loaded with photos and facts, the book pits characters and vehicles from the Star Wars universe against each other to see who'd triumph in battle. There are endless combinations. By the way, Jabba wins, hands down (or rather butt down), by sitting on Jar Jar. Yes!
