This is the New Julian Casablancas Record

julian casablancas record
It’s a cigarette lighter in a USB drive. The drive is on the bottom. You don’t have to light cigarettes with it though. You can also light candles. While taking a bath. And listening to whale songs.

Or the songs in the lighter. Which were written and sung by the former “The Strokes” frontman and entitled Manhattan rich kid Julian Casablancas (his father John Casablancas founded the Elite Model Management – a modeling agency).

One Big GD Book

waynai bible
It’s the entire King James Bible, constructed in 1930 by a man from Los Angeles named Louis Waynai. It weighed over a thousand pounds and was 43 inches tall.

Before reading glasses came along, people did this. The worse your eyesight degenerated the bigger the book you needed to build the following spring. This particular one took Waynai over 8,700 hours to complete. Shortly thereafter, he met L. Ron Hubbard in his gym’s steam room and renounced Christ, believing that aliens just “made more sense”.
