We Gonna Rock Down to Electric Avenue

Shit is hitting the electric fan with all of the drama between Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla! There's nothing like a juicy Victorian scandal about electricity to get us amped (heh heh). Mr. Tesla may not have gotten the recognition he deserved for his improvements to electricity back then, but it's never too late to be appreciated! If you have no idea what we're talking about, be sure to check out this very scientific analysis of the whole situation here. Geek out and show your allegiance to Mr. Tesla with one of many new items with his namesake in the shop now!

1. Tesla's Experimints

How to Be A Happy Camper

If you live in Oregon, we're guessing that all this beautiful weather has probably got you thinking about camping. Everyone knows that the most essential item to take on a camping trip is booze (followed by food, sleeping bag, tent, etc.). If you're looking for the perfect container in which to hold your beloved D.O.C. (drink of choice), we've got plenty of options so you never go thirsty.

Nothing says camping like a PBR in a tin mug! If you're too young for beer, opt for the mini version, perfect for apple juice.
| $14.50-$16.95 |

Never have words been so true. For those who need a larger cup for their beloved beverage. 
| $14.50 |

If beer isn't strong enough to get you near a tent in the wilderness, why not opt for a little whiskey (it'll keep the spiders away!)? Your cocktail makin' tools will blend right in with the rest of the camping supplies.
| Flask: $24.50 | Cocktail shaker: $34.95 |

Combine these socks with your beer blanket to keep those toes extra warm in the great out-of-doors. Perfect for stargazing, mountain climbing, or catching a glimpse of Big Foot.
| $10.00 |

You've got your campfire, your marshmallows, your beer, your friends, what more could you want? You're just a happy camper.
| $26.50 |

Happy camping! BRB, gonna go daydream about summer...

Feel the Bern!

Looking for some creative ways to show your flamin', Bernin' love? ZimZim is here to help you out with all of your left-wing endeavors. More Bern merch to come in the next couple of weeks, so check back for updates!

 Prayer Candle | $19.95

This candle has magical powers: light it up before bed and say a prayer: "Dear Bernie Sanders Gods, I will 100% move to Canada if Trump wins this election. And never speak to you again. Love, a sincerely concerned citizen." After your prayer, if you listen VERY closely, you may hear a faint gust of wind in the distance...
Don't be alarmed! It just means the magic is working! BERN BABY, BERN!

 Bernie Earring Studs | $12.00

Nothing is quite as comforting as having Mr. Sanders on your earlobes. Is there really anything else to say about this?

Bernie Pin | $10.00

A classic campaign staple, one can never go wrong with the Bernie Sanders enamel pin. Wear it to Bernie rallies, grocery stores, hipster bars, or, if you're feeling really brave, to your slightly racist grandma's house for a family dinner. Warning: uncomfortable political conversations may ensue. Exercise with caution.

Sorry, Grandma.

It's Trendy to Hate People

How to Know if You're an Introvert

1. You get the nerve to join a club or activity, then make up an excuse as to why you definitely shouldn't go.

Can't we all just agree that it would be better to not talk to people today?  $24.50

2.You feel personally offended when the barista is extra cheerful towards you at 7:30 am on a Tuesday.

Should've made that coffee at home... | $16.50

3. The only "people" who are acceptable to hang out with are animals. If you ever find yourself at a party (unlikely), you meet Winston the cat and chill with him all night.

"He's just the only one here who gets me." | $9.50

4. You would rather spend the day lying in bed with a good book than interact with actual people. Sometimes, even the sun's presence disturbs your solitude.

Okay, maybe you're just a little hungover from spending all night drinking whiskey with Winston. Either way, all introverts will relate to Matt Cole's adult rendition of Good Night Moon. | $12.00

5. Some days you wake up with new hope in humanity and think, "Maybe I'll talk to someone today."

 Then, a complete stranger on the street says, "You should smile!" And all hope is vanquished.

Pick up your introvert gear at ZimZim! We'll know not to make awkward chit-chat when you check out. Cashier worst-fear for introverts: "So what do you have planned for the rest of your day?" AHHHRGH!
