The Wire Poster Project

The Wire was the best television show of all time. There, we said it. Listen, we loved Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, and Animaniacs as much as the next guy, but when it comes to our favorite, we still have to go with McNulty, Omar, and the rest of the gang. In honor of the HBO classic, hang a piece from The Wire Poster ... continue reading

Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook

In our opinion, no one does chocolate better than the Mast Brothers. Apparently we're not alone because awesome chefs like Thomas Keller, Dan Barber, Daniel Humm, Alice Waters and Alain Ducasse insist on using their chocolate for cooking because of its distinctive taste and purity. It makes sense then that a collection ... continue reading

Louis CK – Oh My God

Coming up with a great stand-up bit can take years of perfecting the wording, timing and delivery.

Only God Forgives

We feel like we're somehow obligated to tell you that we'd see just about anything that Baby Goose was in. Drive is still one of our top movies of recent memory, and the soundtrack is as good now as it was when it came out.

Pacific Rim Special Edition DVD

Do you remember the 80s B movie Robot Jox? Pacific Rim is kind of like that, except it looks a whole helluva lot better, the giant robots are battling aliens that came through a trench in the ocean instead of each other and, oh yeah, Guillermo Del Toro. Having giant robots in common with an awesomely campy 80s action ... continue reading

A Cycling Lexicon

Before this book came across our proverbial desks we never really thought about bicycle headbadges. The tiny addition to your bike headset kind of gets lost in the grand scheme of everything else about the bike, but it shouldn't. These little works of art generally predate car badges, and collecting them feels like ... continue reading

World War Z

There are really one three significant similarities between this movie and the book it's based on. The words World and War, and the letter Z. The people that absolutely loved the book (read; everyone) have a right to bitch for squandering awesome source material, but honestly, the movie isn't bad. It's completely ridiculous, ... continue reading
