Manga Head Explosive Goo

Yes, you read that right, and I’m typing it again, because it’s that much fun:

Manga. Head. Explosive. Goo.

It’s a brand of hair gel made by Garnier, to create those delicious mohawk-tastic heads of hair just like your fave manga characters. Don’t believe me? Here’s the website.

And here’s a classic example of some manga heads:

Ganked from Crystal Tip’s flickr stream. And thank you to Kerri for the heads up on Manga Head Explosive Goo.

Can anybody find a photo of actual Manga Head Explosive Goo in a store? I need to see it.

Okay, now that that’s dealt with, a few more cool images, starting with a SCARY DOLL ALERT!


This is the Italian version of Peeps, published by Fazi. Although Justine can’t look at it, due to her scarydollaphobia, I love it and can’t wait for a matching treatment for The Last Days.

Hey, I just noticed the secret color-coded message in the title, which works in English as well as in Italian. See what I mean? Kewl.

And in Скотт Вестерфельд news, we have Jonathan and Jessica looking very fantastical on the cover of the Russian Midnighters 2: Touching Darkness . . .

I could just look at foreign edition covers all day sometimes. So much easier than, um, writing.

Speaking of which, it’s back to the Leviathan mines for me!

  1. When I finish An Abundance of Katherines tonight, I plan to start reading Paper Towns. I should be able to finish it by Thursday if I keep at the same pace I have been reading.

  2. I recently got Paper Towns from the library, but I couldn’t get into it. It’s just not my kind of book. 😛

    I got a Cafe Press shop!!! I don’t actually have anything in it yet, but I’m working on it. It’s only going to have merchandise inspired by 13 & Co. If you guys have any ideas for 13 & Co. themed shirts, feel free to tell me what they are. 😀
    Click my name and that will take you to the blog, which has a link to the shop. 🙂

  3. Drew-la;;
    Was An Abundance of Katherines good??
    I’ve been meaning to read it when i heard John Green wrote it.
    What is it on a scale of 1-10??
    [[1=worst 10=best]]

  4. Well, Tally&David, on a scale I would definitely rate it about 8 or 9. On a scale of 10 being Looking for Alaska and 1 being… not Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines would be an 8 max.

    Dahlia-wa: I think I have the same problem, though I plan to finish the book, I am having a hard time getting in to it. So far I have read part 1 and plan to begin with part 2 tomorrow.

  5. I’m in a crisis, ya’ll. I have no book to read! Well, I got Undone a few weeks ago, but it’s just not doing anything to me. When a week has gone by and I’m not even halfway done, you know that book isn’t very good. *Sigh* well, I guess I either try to finish it or give up and return it to the library. I gave my friend, also Tally, Marked. I hope she’s started reading it. The House of Night series is the best series I’ve ever read. And I’ve read Twilight and Harry Potter and loved them. So that is definatly saying something.

  6. alex-wa: the mysterious benedict soceity was amazing if you want to read that- the cover looks a little childish, but it really is an amazing book. like, I was sad when it ended 😛 or….. the house of the scorpion was really great too. I didn’t think it would be, but it really was. at the begining there was a list of characters, and there was about 40 of them, but it was auctually really easy to keep up. if you liked twilight then maybe the host? same author. my friends really loved wicked lovely, but not so much for me 😛 have you read love is hell? I loved it so much! some of them were.. odd to say the least, but they were still good. (and one of them is twilight with purple eyes and insane asylums :P) oh and I just finished fablehaven, and that was ok… it was a while before a real plot came in… like, you’d think a plot was coming, and…. nothing 😛 it was still good, though

  7. Forever Last: i really like ur song First to Last, & yes it is kinda dark. but thats ok, alot of songs/poems are.

    Drew-la: i actually read more then half of the book by time i decided to just skip to the end. i dont remember y, but i was getting bored w/it and knew i would never finish it, so i just skipped 2 the end and returned it to the library once i found out what happened.

    Tally&Zane: ur phone broke, that really stinks.


  8. yupp yupp.
    and i have read the house of night series..
    i think its prettyy good,, for some strange reason i didnt get into it that muchh,,
    i did however like Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith!!
    the emotion in it is astounding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i cant even explain how much i loved it!!
    it ALMOST rivals the Uglies….ALMOST

  9. Trish-la: thanx. ya definitely need some music
    Aryll-wa: thanx. ya the lyrics are dark but like u said alot of poems and songs are.


    TODAY IS BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG’S BIRTHDAY!!!! FEBRUARY 17TH!!!! HE IS 37!!!!! (soooo wish he was younger) just thought i’d wish him a happy birthday while rocking out to some GREEN DAY!!!! woo hoo!!!

    my name is now again linked to their website.

    I lock myself inside my room
    With you around, you’ll only add on
    Its been disturbed by my thoughts
    With you around, you’ll only add on

    Please don’t think I’m crazy
    I don’t want you to understand
    My mind is growing hazy
    To hell with your helping hand
    Why don’t you just leave me alone
    This conflict is my own
    Keep your sources away from me
    That’s all

  10. Tally&david, I love the Vampire Diaries, too! Except I think it was way better than Uglies. Not that I don’t love Uglies, too!! I think Uglies is awsome, too! It’s only a little better than Uglies. And the House of Night series is the best series in the world, with Harry Potter. Twilight is below that, with Maximum Ride, Uglies, Skinned, and The Midnighters below that. Hm… something like that… The trailer was set back a little in my opinion. It’ll come out in 2 weeks, hopefully. Hopefully next week! Sorry ’bout that guys. Savanna’s parents are just real protective of her, and she refuses to argue with them! On the other hand, Anthony’s parents never even say when to come back home when he’s over. So if you just have to blame someone, blame Savanna’s parents. But really, it doesn’t matter much anyways. We still are this close to finishing it!

  11. Hehe, I remember when I first discovered Uglies back in 7th grade… I thought the book was soo huge! Haha, now I think it’s rather on the average, or smallish side. Really, when you read Harry Potter and the Order of the Peonix, all other books seem small. Once one kid thought I was reading a dictionary! I was like “No way! It’s Harry Potter! *shows cover*” That was funny! Now I’m a Freshman and goin on 15 in July… Lol

  12. Dang, I write soooooo much! See, I talk alot sometimes, so I guess here I’m talking with the keyboard, so I in turn write alot… see? There I’m going again… LOL! I’m sooo crazy sometimes… It makes my friends laugh!

  13. Tallyand David and Alex-wa: I too love the Vampire Diaries. 🙂 Do you know that there is going to be another Vampire Diaries book? 🙂

    Click my name to visit my blog. 🙂

  14. OMG!!! New House of Night video released for Hunted for Erik!!!! AAAhhhh! Can’t wait!!! I’m going to camp out in front of Barnes and Nobles! Oh, I hope they have a release party… LOL

  15. I love the House of Night series, and The Vampire Diaries but neither are better than any of Scott’s books. Still awesome though. The only books that can compare to Scott’s are JK Rowling’s. And they’re still tied. Can you say EPIC AMAZINGNESS ON ICE? Hecks yeah….

  16. Whoa!!!!!! Nightfall looks REALLY good!!!!! Wow… I was sooo sure that the series was only 2 books… this is amazing! Oh, how I need that book…

  17. Rylee-la: wow. a contact that shows tv shows, controlled by body heat, and u can change the channel thru voice command or with ur hand!! totally emomazing!! too bad it’ll be ten years until it’s finalized. i dunno if we’ll still be around coz apparently the world is supposed to end in 2012. the Mayans predicted it. they also predicted 9-11 so i won’t mess with the Mayans. i just wonder how the world will end. ugh! ya these are the kind of things i think about. no wonder my family worries. oh well.


  18. No way! Manga heads are totally scary-making (same with the doll cover). I am almost done with Extras, and you did a totally awesome job! My friends loved the books so much that we all made names from the Pretty time!

    P.S. – Will there be a movie? Cause if there will be, it would be totally happy-making! I’m glad you made the Uglies Series! 😀

  19. I want some of that explosive goo.

    And…KINGDOM HEARTS! 😀 hahaha. I beat that game last night. Finally. And I want to cosplay as Kairi… dunno if that requires manga head explosive goo though… :/

  20. Peeps cover is creepy although i do like it better my I have a few fears and one is dolls for some reason and the other is too embarassing to say.

    Anyway off the subject:
    You know my town’s library is poorly supplied which means i had to buy all the books with my own money im a 13 year old who is in love with books and has to buy them all her own until it averages to about 70$ in othe ri am just saying your books aren’t cheap.

    It pays off in the end i’ve payed more for a book anyway even if my mom thinks im crazy

  21. Im reading the lat days and it’s not like your gonna answer anytiem soon or maybe at all but does anyone love the introduction as much as i do about the Black death That it awesome! totally unexpected where did you get it?
