If you’re a jazz newbie, Medeski, Martin, & Wood’s Radiolarians: The Evolutionary is your gateway. Rooted in improvisational jazz, the 3-disc recording branches off into segments of rock, folk and funk. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. Once you hear it, you’ll be a jazz junky forever.
Every fragrance has a story. Creed’s Windsor Cologne was created in 1936 for England’s King Edward VIII. Yeah, the guy who forfeited the throne for some American tail. Each limited edition, shatterproof, leather-wrapped bottle is numbered and signed by it’s creator. Wearing this won’t transform you into the Duke of Windsor, but it might give you an edge over your brethren.
It is cold as hell in New England. The Penfield Stapleton Jacket was born there and knows how to battle frigid conditions – no matter what part of the world you reside. Sporting 255g of premium 80/20 goose down, this water resistant/windproof jacket functions as well as it looks.
Craftsman’s 12 Volt Lithium-Ion Hammerhead Auto Hammer drives nails at 3600 impacts/min. Just line up the tool with the attached LED light, pull the trigger, and WHAP – even Tim “The Toolman” Taylor could drive steel with this easy to use tool.
The orange extension cord. A staple of every man’s arsenal. Until now, we’ve never thought of bringing this icon into our home. Chicago designer, Craighton Berman, has figured out a way. The Coil Lamp is a 100 foot cord wrapped around a laser-cut clear acrylic form. If you really want to exert some creative energy, order the do-it-yourself kit.
Bring street cred into your living room. California designers, Jeff Klarin and Rebecca Johnson, collaborated on the Bughouse Scratch DJ Coffee Table. Displaying on knotty pine images of a mixer and two turntables, you can cover with the optional glass top and your favorite albums for some personal flavor.
