We aren’t going to pretend we always understand art. When Marcel Duchamp put a urinal on the wall and called it art we thought it was just for the drunk museum goers who, after a few too many free Chardonnays, lost their inhibitions and their bladder control. So, while we might not judge The Life of Fly as a book of “art work” we can say it makes for a comical read to toss on your coffee table. Magnus Muhr, a Swedish photographer, has discovered/imagined the life of the average housefly, and apparently it includes far more than continuously crashing into your freshly Windex-ed windows. The little buggers can be seen catching a few rays, ripping penalty shots and enjoying their short little lives to the fullest.
The Throttle Bottle Opener is a pint-sized beer popper that’s more clever than you realize. While its compact size make it ideal for tossing on a keyring, its miniscule build is only one of the benefits here. Outfitted with a powerful rare earth magnet, each Throttle Bottle Opener easily finds its way to your bottle’s cap. Not only that, you can keep it on the fridge so it’s on hand whenever you pull out a cold one. Then, use it with one hand to open that bottle. Clever, tiny, and incredibly useful.
