Form2 Touch-sensitive Guitar

Restringing a guitar is like agreeing to watch kids that aren't yours. It's fun and exciting the first time, but each time after that it gets progressively worse until you dread each day it comes like a trip to the dentist. The Form2 Touch-sensitive Guitar does away with that entirely and appears to add multitouch ... continue reading

Kama Sutra: Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition

When we first saw that Penguin was releasing a Deluxe Edition of the Kama Sutra, our first thought was, "We gotta stretch."

The Art of Video Games

When we used to play Pitfall, Donkey Kong or any other video game, clearly we never thought we were looking at art on par with the work of Picasso or Da Vinci. No, we were looking at something far more beautiful. To celebrate our love, The Smithsonian American Art Museum will be running an exhibition entitled "The ... continue reading

In a world of corporately designed musical acts crafted in boardrooms amongst sales-minded suits aiming simply to push copies, it is refreshing when someone steps out and does their own thing. Love 'em or hate 'em, you've gotta respect them. You could tell Kid Cudi was one of these types when you first heard "Day ... continue reading

Carlo Mollino: Un Messaggio dalla Camera Oscura

To be completely honest, as soon as we saw the cover of this book we pre-ordered a copy. We later discovered that Carlo Mollino was an architect, furniture designer, writer, race-car driver and erotic photographer. After who knows how many classical shoots, Mollino started using Polaroids. Un Messaggio dalla Camera ... continue reading

50/50 (Blu-ray)

If there was an Academy Award given for Best Cancer Comedy, 50/50 would win in a landslide. It would also be the only movie nominated... possibly ever. Despite the serious topic (a seemingly healthy 20-something who contracts a rare cancer with a 50% survival rate), 50/50 is actually pretty damn funny. As guys, we'd ... continue reading

Steve McQueen: The Actor and His Films

The test to determine whether any celebrity has reached the iconic level is whether or not you can put a coffee table book about them on display without looking like a complete weirdo. For example, Ryan Gosling is a good actor, but toss a hardcover of his work out during your next kegger and you sure as hell are gonna ... continue reading

Mixtape: Gonna Make You Sweat

Finally putting that gym membership to good use for the first month of the year isn't always the easiest thing to do.

There are only really two reasons to keep your cable tv: live sports and the Food Network. Everything else you could possibly want to watch is available for streaming on one of the many sites on the Internets.

Roku Streaming Stick

If we were only able to grab a couple things from our burning building, you can bet one of them would be our flatscreen TV. What can we say, we're all a bit addicted and consumed with getting fixes of HBO original programming and Netflix offerings. The issue with the burning building scenario is leaving our Roku 2 ... continue reading
