Amplifiear

So many of the products we find are simple in premise. We see them and think, “Dammit, why didn’t we think of a portable computer so we could swim in gold coins?” Then it quickly dawns on us, even if we had that brilliant flash in our skulls, we wouldn’t have a clue how to begin making it. Then we stumble across something like Amplifiear and it pisses us off even more. It’s so simple and so necessary and we want to whine like 5-year-olds because we didn’t come up with it. All you do is clip the little saucer to your iPad and all of a sudden that rear-facing speaker no longer sounds like the muffled garbles of people talking when you’re wasted. By redirecting the sound forward, watching movies, listening to music or checking out clips of people texting and walking into bears no longer puts a strain on your hearing.

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.
