Making Toast

   28 August 2009, terribly early in the morning

As I mentioned before, Shima and I had a $250 dollar gift certificate to William Ashely we needed to spend. I somehow managed to convince her that the best use for this money was to buy the most extravagant toaster imaginable. When I saw the toaster I knew it had to be ours. How could we say no to a a giant block of metal with a push button interface?

I decided to film our toaster making toast. It’s not particularly exciting, but if you’ve ever wondered how annoying I sound in real life, then now is your chance to find out. (In my head I sound way more awesome.)

Bizarre, right?



  1. If that thing ever breaks, you’re going to have to mortgage your condo and mail it to NASA to fix.

  2. I’ve never wanted to punch you in the face more.

  3. I’d block your punch and suplex you.

    I think most of the tech in this toaster was used to put a man on the moon. Shima made toast this morning. She agrees its a good toaster. I’m not sure if it’s $150 good, though i’m not sure what would make a toaster $150 good. I wonder who buys stuff like this regularly.

  4. When i started watching, I was like ‘it’s just a toaster, this is going to be boring’, but i’m left astounded. Bravo toaster.

  5. every toaster should have Knight Rider lights on the front like that.

  6. Looking at the front of that toaster, I feel like there are many copies… and they have a plan.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
