It looks like it came from the future, but there’s something about it that feels retro. Maybe that’s why Swiss watchmakers, Hamilton, named it the Pulsomatic. There’s a bit of a 1950s futurist feel to it, with the block digital display, smooth stainless steel case & rubber strap. But no – you can’t video chat on it. You need your phone to do that.
Yogurt & granola versus applewood smoked bacon. Who do you think wins the breakfast battle? Yeah … the smell of bacon frying in the pan is enough to make even a militant vegan weak in the knees.

With the 1969 Western masterpiece, True Grit, John Wayne finally got his Oscar for his portrayal of Rooster Cogburn a drunk, one-eyed, U.S. Marshal tracking down a cowboy killer. Wayne deftly plays the almost comic role of the larger-than-life lawman and all the bullets & booze really make it move. The Coen Brothers are about to release their updated remake of this Hollywood classic, which is sure to be a scorcher. So, check the original first & compare for yourself .
It’s a huge claim, but nonetheless, they’re making it. The Confederate C3 X132 Hellcat is touted as the toughest motorcycle ever made and guess what? It’s American. These handmade, custom bikes are not the by-product of crafty welding & a crate motor. The technology in the Hellcat is a revolution in power-train design. They are only making 150 of these monsters, so get in line.
This is what smart industrial design looks like. Attractive and functional. French artist, Christian Desile, created this award-winning folding chair from one single slice of board, so it takes up almost no space until you need a seat. But what’s even cooler – the chairs are made of a combination of bamboo & PET, making them truly sustainable.
Even if you’re not into Twitter & tweets, you have to admit a twitter-based comedy like “Shit My Dad Says” is hilarious. Yes, people be can funny in 140-characters. After all, how much space do you need for a one-liner? Well, ask Denis Leary, one of America’s sharpest comics. His new book of illustrated tweets will have you LYFAO even if you don’t know what that stands for yet.
British cuisine is an oxymoron. Maybe that’s why Queen Elizabeth II has given this classic Louisiana hot sauce her royal seal of approval. If you had to eat stuff like Bubble & Squeak, Toad-In-The-Hole, Wet Nelly & Spotted Dick, you’d be looking for something to set your mouth on fire, too.
Just a place for your cash & cards? Yes … but there’s more. The Barrett Alley brand is making hand sewn, vegetable-tanned leather wallets that are smarter.

The wallets are also hand-made by humans, craftspeople, artisans … is that progressive or what?
