It looks like an appliance from the Jetson’s kitchen or a fragment UFO part…maybe part of a hotrod motor from the 50s. But, no. It’s actually a Kees van der Westen ‘Speedster’ Espresso Coffee Machine. These Dutch masters of fine coffee-making machinery are known not just for quality brews – but inspired design. This machine is handmade to order in the Netherlands & requires professional installation. A true coffee geek connoisseur would expect nothing less.
After 50 years on the market, WD-40 has good reason to release this commemorative “Now & Then” twin-pack of America’s favorite household lube. Okay…second favorite lube. But, 50 years of quieting creaky hinges, dry bike chains and the like is a good run. The new can features the futuristic smart straw sprayer & the old can looks like a movie prop from the 50s, but still lubes like its 2010.

Comfy too – fully cushioned insole & knobby rubber outsole. Definately not your dad’s kicks.
Maserati’s GranCabrio is the upmarket Italian automaker’s first four-seater convertible. That means you can impress two more people when you drop the top going 25 miles-an-hour. Seriously though, all the refinement expected in an exotic Italian sportscar found in the now roomier model. Leather, woodgrain and integrated nav systems. But maybe more impactful is the hefty 4.7 liter V-8 under the hood pumping over 400 horses. When you snap this thing into Sport Mode, passengers will really have to hang onto their hats.

Challenge yourself to cook a whole meal in these bags, it’s totally possible. And consider this…no dishes to wash.
Dyson brought us the sleek, design-forward vacuum cleaner we didn’t know we needed until we got it. Now, they’re repeating the act with the Air Multiplier, which is not simply a fan – but is in fact, a fan. Don’t ask us to explain exactly how this bladeless windmill works, but it certainly works and it’s super cool. It’s also safe, with no blades to cut off fingers. With simple controls for oscillation & air output, it feels just like a normal fan…except more, well, sexy.
In 1962 when Topps released the Mars Attacks trading card series, parents all over the nation lost it. What outrageous garbage! But the kids, of course, ate it up. The original trading cards were drawn by renowned comic book artists, Wally Wood and Bob Powell, & painted by legendary pulp artist, Norman Saunders. They have now been re-released by LTL Prints as self-adhesive wall art in a variety of sizes up to 7 feet in length. Now that’s a big bug.
