The animated gif has become an artistic conversation in and of itself these days. There isn’t much that can’t be said on Tumblr, Facebook or any other social media site in less than 10 seconds with some funny text, cats or dancing images of Kate Upton. Artist Paolo Čerić takes the animated gif art form to a whole new level with his mind-bending creations. Part Escher, part pop-culture commentary and all cool, the collection is one you have to check out. If you didn’t get enough with this gallery, check out the rest on his website Patakk.

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.
