Bender-Books

A great philosopher once said, “There is a lot of wisdom in a bottle of whiskey.” (It was either Confucius or Jimmy Buffett, we can’t remember which one.) There’s truth to that adage. We’ve shared more knowledge after some Johnny Walker than we have after finishing any book (albeit slurred knowledge). If you want the appearance of a learned man while you puff on your pipe and relax in your robe, then get yourself a Bender Book. Hidden inside the cover of a book on Law, Finance, Piloting or some other topic is a glass flask ready for something to imbibe. Just be prepared to explain your drinking habit next time someone needs to look something up in your “dictionary.”

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
