Rocco Malatesta Posters

If we had to guess Rocco Malatesta’s greatest passions in life, we’d go with: Smart design, macho cinema and human hands. We’re all on board for two of those three, but the hand thing is a little disconcerting and might be a tad odd in person (we’re picturing a sensual handshake). The German designer creates prints based on movies like Rocky, Scarface and Gran Torino (we actually featured his poster for A Bronx Tale in this post) along with some for well-known people (like Jesus), many of which happen to showcase a hand. So, whether you share Rocco’s love of beautiful illustration and graphic design, or you happen to have an appendage fetish as well, these posters will make nice company for your walls.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
