Head to Shibuya or any other densely-populated area of Tokyo and you’ll be overwhelmed by the bright lights. From billboards to storefronts, it can feel like Vegas on steroids. Not all those lights, however, are stationary. There’s a subculture of truck drivers and owners who deck out their rides in flashing lights and wild ornaments. This video from Great Big Story takes you inside the DIY semi truck culture known as “dekotora.” With tabs reaching six-figures, the trucks look like mobile casinos and mean a great deal to their respective owners. Here’s a wild look inside Japan’s tricked-out DIY truck culture.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
