Your laptop is your most important work tool.

The slim, all-black case features leather top handles, a two-way zip closure, plus a removable shoulder strap & internal laptop sleeve.
Getting a rare car is one thing. But getting a one-off, custom built car is a whole ‘nother. N2A stands for No Two Alike—their creations are custom coaches made to order. Their 789 model is built on a Le Mans winning ’09 Corvette chassis, while the body is a combination of three other classic Chevrolet rides. The front is from a ’57, the cockpit is from a ’58 Impala, and the bird-in-flight tailfins come from a ’59. The other stuff, like trim, paint & performance features are all up to you.
You hate them, but to their credit, condoms reduce the spread of disease and you have to admit the extra “stamina” they provide us guys is actually a bonus for both involved parties. Safe sex is still sex and Sir Richards’ brand condoms are taking a unique approach to marketing their latex. For each condom sold, one is donated to contraception programs in developing & underprivileged countries. Do good while you feel good? Sure.

The Dropkick Murphys have been making sing-along drinking music for over 15 years. Their raw, honest sound blends a punk rock ethos with flavors of traditional Irish work-songs and manly whiskey-soaked melodies. Going Out In Style is their seventh studio record and the band’s first new release in three years. This record gives you the DM’s at their technical best but nothing, absolutely nothing, beats their live show.
Spring is just around the corner and that means Grilling Season will soon be upon us. Quit fooling around with that old kiddie grill and go big this season. Viking has teamed up with Frontgate to create a professional-quality stainless steel grill with all the tech features serious backyard chefs demand. It’s a massive 62” wide with a cooking surface of 836 square inches. That’s big enough for Brontosaurus burgers or a whole rack of Flintstone ribs.
Butts are gross. Not the ones Sir-Mix-A-Lot sings about, the other ones, cigarette butts. But these aren’t the real, stinky kind. They’re just magnets, perfect for sticking pictures to your fridge. No carcinogens, no hacking cough, just a sorta sick novelty.
Even if you do manage to get it in the mail on time, a last-minute birthday card from the drug store doesn’t say much. The good men at Forgetful Gentlemen make fine stationery that will give your correspondence an upgrade. Their letterpress printed card set contains 12 hand-printed cards for occasions like Birthday, Get Well, Love & Congratulations. The cotton Italian paper stock has a smooth, luxurious texture complimenting even the worst chicken-scratch.
From across the room you may not recognize this as a complete home sound system. It looks more like some cubic sculpture from the 80s. Actually, it’s a Swiss designed iPod/iPhone dock, speakers, CD, AM/FM radio and amplifier all in one. Color choices include red, black, white & walnut. The six internal speakers pack a full-spectrum punch and the ultra clean design makes it blend in with any décor.
