Tell me you didn’t cringe when you put that shipping pallet out on the curb. Such a waste, right? Some of us are handy enough to find good use for all that pine, but for the rest of us, how about letting craftsman Clark Titus cobble together a fine looking chair out of the “waste”? He’ll finish it with teak oil and ship it out for your green ass to sit on.
The old saying goes, “they don’t make ’em like they used to.” Not true. You can find new stuff made the old way all over the web. Even the old-fashioned, pesky slingshot has been revived, stylized and brought to market. Moss commissioned limited-edition handmade slingshots, signed and numbered by the annoying little twerp who built them, artist Christopher Jarratt.
Let’s face it, when you’re trying to squeeze in nine before work, you don’t have time to play Mr. Rogers with your spikes. The new Street model from Adidas will go from the car to the cart in seconds flat. They are also 85% less ugly than normal golf shoes. Bonus!
If you want to laugh instead of cry this fall, turn off the election coverage and press play on the Looney Toons Platinum Collection Vol. 1. Three discs with 50 re-mastered classic cartoons have now been rendered in crisp Blu-ray radness.

Nothing throws you off like losing an earbud mid-sprint. It destroys your rhythm and there’s no catching back up. These wireless, shake-proof, secure-fit earbuds could be the answer. Runners, bikers, skiers, even heavy metal headbangers, you guys will all appreciate these.
If you’re a sucker for killer, custom packaging, the “special, limited, numbered, collector’s edition” globe packaging of the multi award-winning Planet Earth series will be hard to resist. Inside, this 6-disc set includes loads of additional features and with a run-time of over nine hours it will be a great tool for teaching kids what our magnificent earth was like before we ruined it.
If you’re one of those holdouts who still keeps a landline and talks on a regular home telephone, we’ve got some good news for you. Now you can use Skype. The company has recently developed technology adapting Skype software for landline use. They’re also introducing a Skype-ready cordless phone.

When her parent’s come by, try to keep them out of the room that you covered with Imperial Forces wallpaper. We like it, too. It’s high-quality and hand-screened and features Darth, Boba Fett, and the rest of our buddies from the empire. But don’t let them see it. They won’t understand and it will be awkward.
Who cares about a staple remover? Well, apparently “Desk Artist” Jac Zagoory does. His ferocious staple chomping creatures like a lion, bear, cobra, gator, etc., are rendered in pewter, turning the dullest office tool in the history of humanity into something special.
