Reel to Reel Audio Tape Clocks

There’s always a special place in our hearts for something that cleverly re-purposes an object to fit another use.  It’s ingenuity, or in the common nomenclature of popular culture, MacGuyvering.  These clocks get our stamp of approval by taking something unusual–a reel of old school audio tape–and using it as the face of a clock.    Definitely not something you see every day.  Also, if you ever have an emergency where there’s a life or death situation that can only be resolved with 600 feet of audio tape, you’ll have it handy.  Unlikely, but you never know.

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.
