Hudson Hotel's Luxe Vending Machine Is AWESOME!

Remember the days when vending machines featured items such as lightly salted pretzel sticks? If not, don't worry about it. We're pretty sure Hudson Hotel doesn't remember either.

The Hudson Hotel in NYC has launched Semi-Automatic, which is an oversized vending machine that includes some traditional hotel vending machine items, such as a toothbrush, but also many fancy and unorthodox vending machine items, including the following:

-Copies of Catcher in the Rye
-A Ouija Board
-A Dagger Rosary by jewelery designer Pamela Love
-A Black Sequin Mini Skirt by Haute Hippie
-24k Gold Handcuffs by Kiki De Montparnasse
-A way to rent a Red Ferrari 599 GTB from Gotham Dream Cars
-An Original Hudson T-Shirt, designed by artist Chrissie Miller of SOPHOMORE

The machine is available 24/7, and prices range from $4 for basic items to $10,000 for a one-week rental on a Ferrari.

Sounds like a kick-ass vending machine, although as a throwback, it might be nice if it had a couple of classic vending machine items. We'd be much more likely to decide to rent the $10,000 car if we could chew it over with a Twix first.

What items would U like to see in the Semi-Automatic?

How would you like to be inspired to write a masterpiece novel?

For the low, low price of $1,000,000, you can bid on J.D. Salinger’s toilet, which he may very well have sat on while writing his classic Catcher in the Rye. Gotta love Ebay!

Here’s what the listing says about this must-bid item:

When he died, his wife inherited all of his manuscripts with plans to eventually release some of them! Who knows how many of these stories were thought up and written while Salinger sat on this throne!

This vintage toilet is from 1962 and is dated under the lid. It will come to you uncleaned and in it's original condition when it was removed from Salinger's old home!

We’ll have to give this some thought. Admittedly, a million dollars isn’t what we’re accustomed to paying for a toilet, BUT they are offering free shipping. Definitely something to think about.

Will U bid on J.D. Salinger’s toilet?
