Oct 17, 2009: Anger Release Machine

I was scrolling down a bunch of pictures of oddball (for us) vending machines.
They were mostly from Asia, and dispensing everything imaginable.
The only "normal" one I saw had live bait, from here in the USA.

Then I saw these two "Anger Release Machine" pictures.




At first the idea and contents made me think it must be Japan, but the price tags are in Euros.
Googling around, I found several sites that credited two artists, Katja Kublitz and Ronnie Yarisal, but I didn't see these on their site.

I did answer the nagging question of whether you get the merchandise to smash or not.
No, you just get to see it drop and break... safer and neater that way, I guess.

A kitty for me please!



classicman  Saturday Oct 17 07:54 AM

Oh boy, they better keep that thing stocked. It would be bad if they ran out of whatever you wanted to smash.



spudcon  Saturday Oct 17 08:08 AM

What happens if it takes your money and doesn't deliver?:p



Cloud  Saturday Oct 17 10:12 AM

drop and break? that's no good at all! It's the personal connection and the arm movement that are effective.

Hey! an idea for a Wii game!

WiiSmash'emup! Love it!

I've long had an idea for a stress-relief clinic to be located in some major city with lots of stressed executive types (say, Wall Street, 2008).
Step one is where you get to smash the hell out of a bunch of cheap crap like this. High-rollers can have personalised statues of loathed individuals to set about with a 5-iron.
Step two is a nice cup of tea and a massage.
Step three is to play with puppies and or kittens for an hour.
Step four is where we give you the outrageous bill, which pisses you off so much you have to go back to step one again. Rich, I tell you, I'm going to be RICH!!!!


SamIam  Saturday Oct 17 08:52 PM

OMG! I'll take one of each, please, and I'm the one who gets to smash 'em.



Elspode  Saturday Oct 17 09:14 PM

You've all got the wrong idea. You rent a car, and drive it right into those fucking machines.



Cicero  Saturday Oct 17 11:50 PM

Are they kidding? My ex won't fit in there!!! On second thought....How clever!!!

then you rock that fucker in a rage, until the piece you paid for and every other front row item falls the fuck out and breaks! goddammit!

I wonder if we're sending the children, the wrong message. Instead of fixing the problem that upsets us, we smash things. Worse than that, indirectly throwing money at the problem. Think of the children.



lumberjim  Sunday Oct 18 12:03 AM

smash shit over the children's heads.



ZenGum  Sunday Oct 18 01:58 AM

Hey, a 9-year-old's head would make a great battering ram to trash that machine with!

You just got a disgusted look from Diz; I laughed so loudly at that, he felt he had to vacate my shoulder. Thank you.


spudcon  Sunday Oct 18 08:57 AM

LJ gets it right again! I join SG in thanking you.



capnhowdy  Sunday Oct 18 09:51 AM

I'd prefer to unload a 30 round clip from an AR5 on it. Now THAT'S anger release.



SPUCK  Tuesday Oct 20 05:55 AM

Naw - 8 rounds of 12 gauge 00 buckshot.



wolf  Tuesday Oct 20 07:46 PM

But what if I really want one of those maneki nekos? Having it break would just make me more angry!
