jack_daniels-mr_jack-160th_birthday

Long before there were status updates, tweets, and Kanye West there was Jack Daniels. Remember those family trees you had to do in grade school? Jack Daniels was founded long before the first ancestor you could ever come up with. And now the whiskey is 160 years old. To commemorate one of the world’s best selling spirits, they’re bottling a special edition in an all black bottle. The only way to celebrate this birthday is the same way you celebrate any other, by getting completely hammered. Except this time you get to do it with the drink of Senators (Lem Motlow – proprietor – actually got elected to help repeal prohibition) and have a cool collectors item to put on your shelf instead of just pictures you’ll regret later.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
