Adventures at the Edge!

Yesterday, our favorite sparkle kittens at Edge of Urge needed a Freaker re-order. Seeing that they are approximately 4 minutes away from The Freakeroffice, we delivered them with strength and vigor (like DragonSlayers of stealth!)  We were on a mission. And we were going to claim victory over this mission. But then! But then we were suddenly blinded by a glitter-storm of jubilance!  Oh no! So much love! THE DRAGONSLAYER-OF-STEALTH'S WORST ENEMY! We found ourselves holding...


A Grand Return & Bodily Experiments!

Oliver came back to Wilmington today!!  We knew when we smelled a Sneaky Hat (not to be confused with The Sneaky Hat) lurking around the corner.  He brought us goodies!! His MamaBear sowed us a life sized Freaker! Fun for hours! Oliver! We're so happy to have you back! How could we have ever survived without you?!    And while we were rejoicing at his return, Oliver dropped some pretty heavy news on us. As it turns out, he had never actually left. His adv...


Freak the AirWaves!

Today the Freakerteam is feeling a little bit gritty. We're thrashing around the office screaming British obscenities (like "WANKER!") and headbanging to nothing in particular. We're about to smash guitars and shave our heads (except for Oliver. His mane of glory will not be touched.)  When this alter-ego shows it's spiky face, it looks a little something like this:  Whatever could have induced this onslaught of badassery, you ask? We were featured on our local NPR stat...


Graduation to Professionalism

Back in November, we gave a little chitchat at UNCW for the Wells Fargo Entrepreneurial Speaker Series. Zach can pronunciate an entire sentence without breaking out in a fit of giggles (this is a pseudo-lie.) Oliver can bring his prosthetic arm Trish to academic gatherings (she was a huge hit.) Lauren can accidentally tell a lecture hall of students that they shouldn't go to college (she deeply apologizes if this offended anyone.) And Justin can announce that he's very very extre...


Right back atcha, work!

Today is a joyous day across the nation! Celebrations and festivities are erupting from sea to shining sea! We don't even know how to contain our immense excitement and we've been worrying all day that we may explode from a fit of ravaging happiness!!  Today is the day that employed Americans get the honor and the pleasure of going back to work!  Reports have it that in New York, employees on Wall Street have started crippling joy-riots. In Chicago, the financial district has ...


Freak Festivities!

 We'd like to share with you a little somethin somethin that we found in The Soapbox last night. Let us preface this with a statement: We have never been so honored to be hypothetically next to something. BAM BAM BAM BAM!!!!


Wurk Revisited!

The other day a very special lady was helping us hand-screenprint all of our holiday packaging and she said something prolific: "You should make a video to show the world how hard you work! It looks like all fun and games but you guys work all day and work all night!"  Little did she know that we actually did make a video about our work work work scenarios! So this one is for all the little ladies out there who think we do handstands at the office.  (Editors note: We do hand...


New uses for Freakers: Fair Game

We've recently discovered that our favorite laundromat carries local craft beers for a dollar. One dollar.   A good portion of The Freakerteam has taken the obvious call to action. BUT, even though you think this is a win-win scenario, academics would beg to differ... Here is what happens in the school of psychological economics when dollar craft beers are introduced into any given situation: 1.  Since you are only spending one dollar on dollar craft beer, your p...


Local Showcase #3: Justin Lacy & The Swimming Machine

There is such an itty bitty space of time between now and Christmas and we've been showcasing local artists to help solve any confusion about who is AWESOME (community artists!) and who's NOT-AS-AWESOME (Goods made in big countries that aren't the USA!) Some of the past Local Showcases have included Edge of Urge - where to get that sparkly someone something finally sparkly enough - and Blueberry Fusion - the multimedia time capsule extraordinaries!  Today, we've found the cultu...


Out-Of-Towner Initiation Rituals.

Lauren has an old friend in town. Unfortunately for him, he's been bringing us homemade lunch everyday (including but not limited to: JALAPENO APPLE-PIE. Yes, you heard right) and to show our thanks we tackle him with love. And "love tackles" often include inappropriate polaroids.   You heard right, folks. If you ever want a gaggle of women to touch their own breasts on camera.... Jalapeno Apple Pie. 


Freaks in Black! Exhilaration!

 When we woke up this morning and flipped through the "news" we collectively almost peed our pants with joy. What "news" story could possibly induce an entire office to wet themselves, you ask?! The only one that will ever matter (this is a lie.) .... The Men in Black 3 trailer has officially been released.  Ok ok you get it - Everyone loves 1997. But why would the Freakerteam feel so deeply connected with an alien comedy blockbuster? Chances are that you have never been in our o...


Local Showcase #2: Edge of Urge

Partly because Christmas is creepin' up, but mostly because we are so enthralled and deeply in love with geography (and also cake!), we've started to showcase local artists, local businesses, local juices and local _____(insert anything else relevant or not here)_____.  Yesterday, we solved all of your confusion as to what to get the memory-maker on your list. Today, we're going to tackle the lovely lady on your list that enjoys 3 or more of the following things: 1. puppies 2...
