Unique Ways to Lighten Up…

Trends are fickle and ever-changing: Our music, clothes,  -  even food can go 'in' and 'out' of style!  Yet with this amazingly cool and crazy lamp, it's good to know that our trends are taking a turn for the unique. 

This is my favorite! The 'tasteful', (and cleverly named), Cereal Bowl Lamp is a new way to light up any room. Just reach for the spoon and turn on the 14-watt flourescent bulb. 

Found on Etsy for $89.98, (but sold out...sorry guys, I really wanted one...), the lamp can be purchased with a variety of bowl-colors including orange, greens, blues, and pinks.  Ohgizmo!.com points out the stunning likeness to a real bowl of Froot Loops, warning light bowl-owners to "keep it out of the reach of pets, toddlers, and hungry roommates."

Not a very important topic, yet I feel it should be discussed...:D. Would you buy a lamp like this? What other cereal would make a good light-fixture? (This one is definitely making me crave some sugary breakfast cereal...)

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
