When you were growing up and pretending to be a rapper, your lines probably included a lot of basic rhymes. You probably have a cassette somewhere that starts with, “My name is (blank) and I’m here to say, ” and then it proceeds to rhyme “say” with “day” or “way.” The pros have a slightly larger lexicon. The latest print from Pop Chart Lab highlights 100 lyricists and color-codes them by the amount of unique words used in their first 35,000 lyrics (around 3-5 albums). The poster was created with the help of Matt Daniels, and was adopted from his original “Largest Vocabulary in Hip-Hop.” Apparently Aesop Rock has never repeated a word.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
