Space stations, petri dish sheep, the God particle; technology is super-advanced & utterly amazing, so why did it take so long to develop the single-cup French press? Who knows, but now it’s here. Drink up.
We can all appreciate a nice rack. Whether the display is a deer, elk, your neighbor’s wife (don’t stare), or even the steering system off your OG mountain bike, a good mount will always draw attention. Bicycle Taxidermy offers a variety of pre-mounted bike “horns” and “antlers” as well as the parts to mount your own. Odd perhaps, but certainly less creepy than a jackalope or ogling another man’s rack.
You won’t be in Miami, trick, but you can rent the actual house used in the filming of Scarface. The 10,000-square foot Roman Revival mansion was the backdrop for Al Pacino’s best role ever in the definitive 80s drug/gangster movie. Though the film’s location was Miami, this $30k-a-month vacation rental is stashed in the hills above Santa Barbara, California. So you’re not gonna find no (f-ing) cock-a-roaches.
Chess is a game for smart people and weirdos, which means it’s a game for almost everyone.

To most people, international airports are just noisy, crowded, germ-infested zoos in which leaving ASAFP is always the main goal. But maybe you’re not most people. Maybe you really like the Billy Goat Tavern at O’Hare or that one bathroom stall on concourse G at MSP. The Runway Series artist prints memorialize the world’s busiest airports, showing an overhead map, stats and each hub’s IATA code letters.
