Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm, crawls into the mind of a soldier in War. In the bloody world of endless bombs & bullets, Junger portrays a head-strong soldier who is ready to protect his “brothers” at any cost. Based on his 14-month experience with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in Afghanistan, this read is an unforgettable portrait of men under fire.
Talking on the cell phone while driving is in some states a crime. Until now, “hands-free” has never been 100% touch-free. BlueAnt’s S4 Voice-Controlled Speakerphone is the world’s first. Storing up to 2,000 phone book entries, you can chat it up for 20 hours (on a single charge) without lifting a finger. Life just keeps getting easier.
Your typical UK travel itinerary includes Buckingham Palace, a ride on the London Eye, a chippy for some fish-n-chips and perhaps a cruise on a double-decker. Not you. You would prefer to harness your inner manhood chasing tanks across an official WWII bombing ground. Engage in paintball battle from inside 17 tons of hardened steel outfitted with turrets & a 40mm cannon. What’s next…Hiroshima?
Denmark-based, Davone looked to the sun god Ra in the design of their side-by-side, 8″ coaxial speakers. Reminiscent of iconic glasses, these vintage-inspired units feature a dark-hued, walnut plywood exterior with a high-end, refined sound. Look for them in July 2010.
This isn’t Hallmark. Remind everyone of what a smart-ass you really are. They’ll still appreciate the acknowledgment of their first born. It’s the thought that counts, isn’t it?
Ancient cultures have always used leaves to create products for everyday living. Now you have an opportunity to learn from the ancestors & leave a green footprint at your next disposable dinnerware function. Pair with a brew in a recyclable bottle… and you have yourself a BBQ. Circa 2010.
What started out as a Puch Free Spirit has been reworked into this Boardtrack Racer. Traveling 55mph, the tail-light was salvaged from a ’39 Ford, the gas-tank a reclaimed soda fountain & the kill switch snagged from an old VW. Did I mention the tank is held on with a belt? The guys at 1977Mopeds never cease to amaze. What for most would be a pile of relics has been turned into a sweet ride. If they can’t make this one again, talk to them, I’m sure something equally fantastic is available.
Singularity makes Lost look like a fairytale. Random time traveling, first-person obliterating, weapons manipulating time, Cloverfield-sized aliens & Cold War-era Russian science experiments gone awry. This game’s possibilities are endless. Unless of course, you fall victim to the island’s enigmatic wickedness…yourself.
LA-based, Generic Surplus manufacturers some beautiful, classic, casual shoes. Can’t you picture them strewn by the back door… slightly dirty, a little ripped up, but so well-worn they could never hit the trash can? They have a story all their own. Summer personified.
