If your carabiner’s biggest job is attaching your water bottle to your messenger bag, you probably don’t need the performance of Black Diamond’s new locking carabiners with Magnetron Technology. But climbers will appreciate that instead of sketchy screw-style gates, these babies use magnetic force. The rest of us urban adventurers will mostly just like the colors they come in.
If you’ve ever gone hunting for a good movie poster, you know they’re hard to find. So let us share. Italian-born London artist Claudia Varosio creates her own graphic take on classic films, designing totally unofficial yet awesome movie posters in a style that may just work perfectly with your décor.
New York’s Craft Coffee is all about bringing you a new brew. Their coffee delivery subscriptions ship fresh, hand-selected artisan coffees to your door every month. Doesn’t this sound better than standing in line at 9AM behind a gaggle of tweenagers all ordering 40-ounce Mochachino-latte-supremes? Thought so.
Don’t let the title fool you. This isn’t a guidebook on how to destroy your liver. It’s part recipe-book and part comedy. Fusing hands-on knowledge of classic cocktails with boozy banter, the two bartenders behind this new book stir up wisdom and wit that goes great with whatever you’re drinking. Mix your friends a drink they’ve never tried before and serve it with a sidecar of sarcasm. Bottom’s up.
Remember that annoying little dude in college who always saved empty liquor bottles from the parties and displayed them in his “trophy case”? No? Okay, well pretend you remember him. That same dude finally found something to do with his trophies. He’s making lamps out of them. And you can buy one. Or many.
When it comes to laptops, the letters PC, should really stand for “Pretty Chunky.” Most are thicker than a Double Whopper and weigh somewhere in the vicinity of 13 pounds. Before you and your precious spreadsheets develop digital diabetes, you should consider going on a diet. Sony’s new lean and light Vaio-Z is a much healthier option.
Whether or not you need a little pocket for your guitar pick, this full-grain leather wallet from Atlanta’s Whipping Post brand could be your jam. It’s flat and durable with 3 card slots, a license compartment, and room for cash. Heard a rumor they’re developing the “poker’s wallet” next, featuring a condom pocket. Maybe you should wait for that one.
Before you bend over for the lawyers and give her half of everything, you should really spend some of that capital. Maybe in the past, a 20-foot long animatronic Triceratops would’ve seemed like a waste of $350K. Not now. This thing’s got built-in digital motion sensors that cause it to move when you walk past. It also packs a thousand-watt speaker to belt out its terrifying, prehistoric skrawk. Seems like a bargain to us.
Real feelings and philosophical ponderings (that means deep thoughts, man) are for weird chicks and Lit. Major dweebs, right? Finally, we’re not the only ones who think poetry is a joke. College dude and “broet” Brian McGackin has penned his first volume of verse called Broetry that pays homage to stuff real guys can relate to: Xbox, frozen pizza, Bruce Willis, crap like that. It’s totally gonna be a classic.
The musical tinkling of forged steel from Busted Knuckles’ “Wind Chime With Wrenches” will lend a calming sense of the ethereal to your workshop. Crafted from recycled wrenches, this unique piece will artfully compliment the smell of motor oil and buzz of powertools. If you’re man enough for some workshop whimsy, this could be the piece that ties the whole garage together.
