We don’t care who you are, or what music you grew up on–the Thin White Duke made some of the greatest music of all time during his tenure on Earth. Whether you prefer that persona or Ziggy Stardust, there’s no denying that David Bowie was one of the greatest musicians of all time, so it’s about damned time that one of the great sneaker makers built a few pairs worthy of his legacy. Vans is the perfect manufacturer to pick up Bowie’s punk runk ethos for a sneaker collection that even the Duke would be proud of. According to Esquire, the line will include four of “Vans’ most popular silhouettes, the Slip-On 47 V DX, Old Skool, Era, and Sk8-Hi, each customized in colorways inspired by some of Bowie’s most beloved albums—Hunky Dory, Aladdin Sane, Space Oddity, and Diamond Dogs.” The Vans x David Bowie inspired collaboration will be launching in select Vans stores internationally on April 5th. We’ll be wearing each of the options on a rotating basis if the opportunity presents itself.

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?
