Metallica-Made-a-Childrens-Book-That-Drops-Later-This-Year

Want to up your Cool Uncle cred while simultaneously teaching all your nieces and nephews the importance of the alphabet? We can’t believe we’re about to say this, but Metallica can help. We’re not saying that the decades old track “Enter Sandman” was some sort of foreshadowing, but Metallica has just released details on an upcoming children’s book title The ABCs of Metallica. Co-authored by Howie Abrams and illustrated by Metallica collaborator Michael “Kaves” McLeer, The ABCs of Metallica looks back at the history of the band through every letter of the alphabet as they journeyed from Garage Days to Master of PuppetsThe ABCs of Metallica hits shelves and online book stores on November 26, 2019 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting their charity All Within My Hands, a foundation that “aims to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities that have supported the band for years.”

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?
