15 Things We Wanted To Steal From CES 2014

15-things-we-wanted-to-steal What the news coverage of CES doesn't show you is that 90% of the gadgets you come across there are either old, boring, or simply pieces of junk. Finding interesting, new devices is like hunting for buried treasure. After days of digging, here are the 15 things we wanted to steal most from the show.

Tullamore D.E.W. - The Parting Glassplay

Tullamore D.E.W. - The Parting Glass

Pour yourself a few fingers and raise a glass to Tullamore D.E.W. for creating this brilliantly beautiful short film. “The Parting Glass” honors the age-old Irish tradition of gathering with friends and enjoying a drink while reflecting on good times past. So pour a dram with...

top-10-videos Not every post we put up is focused on a tangible object. As much as we love shiny new gadgets and delicious bottles of booze, we also enjoy anything that can entertains us, which is why we toss up videos every now and then. Here are the 10 most popular that we shared this past year.

Exploding Cars

Exploding Cars

We spend about thirty seconds setting up a shot. Fabian Oefner spends two months. Each of these photographs from his "Disintegrating" series took about that long to create, but, clearly, the results are worth it. The Swiss artist took apart model cars and suspended the various pi...

Grasshopper Vaporizer

Grasshopper Vaporizer

We don't normally say "best *insert product here* ever" because tastes are subjective, and there are lots of different products on the market in each sector. But seriously, the Grasshopper Vaporizer might be best vaporizer ever. This isn't the kind of portable vaporizer you pick ...

Brew Trip: Vermont Week

Brew Trip: Vermont Week

Vermont has quickly become one of the hottest beer destinations in the country. It's not just that the state has the most breweries per capita, it's the fact that some of the beers they are churning out are world class. This week we're going to take you inside some of those brewe...

State Bicycle Co. Contender Series

State Bicycle Co. Contender Series

Even without the hot, tattooed blonde in lingerie, the photo shoot for the new Contender Series from State Bicycle Co. contained porn... bike porn. But then there's also the hot, tattooed blonde in lingerie (Alysha Nett, if you were wondering) and, well, you get the idea. They te...

The Labels of Prairie Artisan Ales

The Labels of Prairie Artisan Ales

Prairie Artisan Ales crafts some really, really good beers. If you haven't had the pleasure, get your hands on some Bomb! or any of their farmhouse ales whenever you have the chance. One of the other reasons we dig the Oklahoma brewery is the artwork on their labels. We had the chance to talk with Colin Healey, who started the brewery with his brother Chase, about the design and direction of, not only what goes in the bottles, but what goes on them.

Famous Movie Cars by Nicolas Bannister

Famous Movie Cars by Nicolas Bannister

We've seen plenty of movies where the car or vehicle in it was really the star of the show. French illustrator, Nicolas Bannister, clearly has as well. His series of Famous Movie Cars takes the four-wheeled icons from some well-known films and displays them in all their glory. Fr...

Louis CK - Oh My God

Louis CK - Oh My God

Coming up with a great stand-up bit can take years of perfecting the wording, timing and delivery. So when someone comes up with a bunch every single year, uses them and then tosses them out and starts all over again, you know the guy is good. Louis CK has been doing this with hi...

Hangover-Free Beer

Hangover-Free Beer

No, we're not talking O'Doul's here, we're talking about electrolyte-enhanced beer. A group of Australian scientists added electrolytes to two commercial beers to make, in essence, hydrating, hangover-free brew. There are a few caveats, however, including the fact that the id...
