This keyholder is proof almost anything is reusable. Made from recycled auto seatbelt hardware, the Buckle Up Key Holder keeps keys organized, while looking pretty cool hanging on the wall. We think that’s just nifty. Using the word nifty is further proof recycling works with almost everything…even outdated slang adjectives from the 1950s.
If you’ve ever driven up the coast of Maine in the summer, you’ll be stoked to know you can now get the wicked-awesome taste of a fresh Maine lobstah roll without ever having to sit in traffic “down Maine.” Hancock’s classic creation made Oprah’s O-list even though they only use “a touch” of mayo. Get a refrigerated box of these bad boys mailed straight to your door & you’ll be like, “Ayuh—that’s good lobstah!” or at least wish you had a Maine accent.
Rules For My Unborn Son by Walker Lamond is chock full of fatherly aphorisms, affirmations & advice. Words to live by – you could say. Lamond packed 224 pages with sage advice like, “When in doubt, wear a tie,” and “Men with facial hair have something to hide.” Part entertainment, part real wisdom, this book is a great gift for a father-to-be or your own inner child who still hasn’t grown up.
The fact this little jellybean wears the green oval makes the British motor press cringe. But the truth is, turning forty means middle age. And, Range Rover hasn’t hit this manufacturing milestone by always building ’em burly. They’ve leaned ever-more toward luxury. The people who never get their Rovers dirty are the ones who lease the new model as soon as it comes out – so, the Evoque, touted as the smallest, lightest & most fuel-efficient Range Rover ever, fits at forty. And hey…its still four-wheel drive.
It’s kind of like paint ball without the creepy, military vibe or laser tag without the…I don’t know, laser-ninja weirdos? Anyway, the Water Wars game set uses simple water guns, but the vests with targets on them make the game. The ink on the targets reacts with water, so when you hit a target (and wet ‘em up) it looks like blood. And there’s nothing weird or creepy about that. Is there?
Just one trip to the emergency room for stitches from a self-induced puncture wound should be enough to make you consider the ZipSnip. This handy cutter slices carpet, plastic, leather, cardboard and so on. Because it has a blade guard and reaches where scissors can’t, it’s a lot less likely to chop off your fingertip than you are. Plug-in, charge up & avoid injury.
Just when Vince Vaughn was hitting his stride, between Swingers and Zoolander, he was cast as serial-killer cowboy, Lester Long, in Clay Pigeons. It’s a dark comedy centering around a suicide witnessed by lead man Clay (Joaquin Phoenix ) and the ensuing investigation by FBI agent, Jeanine Garlofalo. Call it deranged-funny.
Southern California was the birthplace of custom car culture & remains a hotbed to this day. It should come as no surprise, the new retro Rossi Sixty-Six C6 Corvette custom was designed (and will be built) in Irvine, CA. Design cues scream 60s ’Vette, with classic split window rear glass and round pair tail-lights. But inside & under the hood, this beast is totally modern. Adding 20 ponies rounds up the power to 450 HP and the re-done, generously appointed cockpit make this conversion complete.
Due to a massive increase in male-pattern baldness, the unseemly fedora has had a resurgence in popularity in the last few years. So, chances are you have one. But not one of these. The Cassette Tape Fedora has a great shape, perfect brim – it’s a good hat. But, the story behind it is much cooler. It’s woven out of “Sonic Fabric,” which is a blend of actual audio tape & regular thread. Sounds cool, right? It’s the brainchild of designer, Alyce Santoro. A tie is also available.
Whether you’re talking wine or movies, Francis Ford Coppola needs little introduction. His latest fruit of the vine is his FC Reserve with bottle labels designed by longtime collaborator & friend, Dean Tavoularis. Tavoularis is a film production designer & visual artist who has worked with Coppola on such classics as The Godfather and the interior design at the Coppola Winery in Sonoma, California.
