You’ve gotta hand it to Brad Pitt, for being so pretty, he has sure played some ugly parts. In Kalifornia, he’s a white-trash criminal who gets in on a cross-country ride-share with a writer (David Duchovny) and his girlfriend. As they ride along, Pitt charms Duchovny with his brashness & bold violence. Their weird tour grows ever more tense, but what the rest of the crew doesn’t know (except Pitt’s girl, Juliette Lewis) is that he’s leaving a trail of bodies in their wake.
Triumph was ahead of the retro-curve when they reintroduced their modern version of the Scrambler back in 2005. 865cc’s of no-BS in an on/off-road set-up that’s a nod to Steve McQueen & the enduro dirt dogs of the 60s. Basically, it was cool right out of the wrapper. But then, Philly-based custom shop, Hammarhead Industries, got busy on it. Stripping it down to its essence, they created the Jack Pine, a bare-knuckle brawler looking so good you may feel bad about getting it all muddy. Actually…no you won’t…you’ll feel like Steve McQueen, himself.
That friend of yours who thinks he’s a pro photographer (& always totes a big DSLR around his neck, cramping your style) is gonna hate you when you break one of these out. These glass-optics lenses mount onto your phone camera using a simple, but sturdy, magnetic ring to transform your little phone into an artist’s eyepiece. Choose the fisheye or combination macro/wide-angle lens & shoot like a pro.
Zombie warfare is about to get a lot more fun for you and Dead Rising 2’s main man, Chuck Greene. A new mechanical allows players to build their own zombie-slaughtering weapons. This is just one of the new features coming in this highly anticipated game. It is played in a new world, with a whole cast of new psychos. The Collector’s Edition set features a steel 2-disk case, art book & other promotional items. Let the slaughter begin!
The new Special Edition Star Wars R2D2 Droid 2 phone is cooler than ComiCon. For one, it’s totally top secret. The public has not seen the phone, which is rumored to have special hardware features to make it look like R2D2 himself (itself?) and it comes fully-loaded with exclusive Star Wars content & functions. The only way to get one is to sign up on the Verizon website. Get over there before the ship takes off. (Photo was leaked and presumed to be the real deal)
Detroit. America’s Motor City is a crumbling metropolis leftover from a bygone-era of American industrial dominance. In their book, The Ruins Of Detroit, photographers Yves Marchand & Romain Meffre expose the decay of what 50 years ago, was one of our nation’s finest cities. Magnificent images of architecture in collapse & abandoned grandeur hint hauntingly to a past that may never be recovered. Hardcover, 200 pages.
You have the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason and now you can back it up. Open beer in a bottle or can and in the event of extreme provocation, you could probably open up someone’s forehead. We’re not endorsing improper use of the Drinique Knuckle Bottle Opener, just saying.
We have FIVE of these to give away.

Your iPhone does everything for you – except change the channel, until now. You can be even lazier with the infrared hub from Gear4. This small, stand-alone unit can be placed anywhere in the room to receive bluetooth signals from your iPhone making it a universal remote. It’s called the Unity Hub – it will switch songs on the stereo, pause the movie & even change the channel on the TV. Just lay there and fiddle with your phone – the world of multimedia is at your fingertips.
You met the girl of your dreams. But…when she comes to your apartment & sees your action-figure collection on display – all bets are off. Maybe you don’t want to let go of the past – so here’s a solution. First, put the action-figures in storage and then order a Toy Lamp from London-based designer, Ryan McElhinney. Each lamp is unique – made of recycled toys that are bonded, coated & painted to form a sculpture. It will shed some light on things…and hopefully help you get that second date.
