And Now, the Hemingway Cookbook
Some things in life require no explanation. Like sandwiches. Also, a little something called The Hemingway Cookbook. But just in case, it’s a new codex stacked with over 120 recipes inspired by Hemingway’s characters and his personal life. Might want to find a lion-meat guy.
New Deck Shoes. Actually Old Deck Shoes.
It’s best if you know about these shoes. Partly because they were designed in France and made in Japan and will look fantastic on your feet. But mostly because they’re called Wakouwas. And that’s just fun to say... Wakouwas. Anyway, they’re new canvas deck shoes designed like old-school Sperry Top-Siders. So enjoy those.
THE AMAZING FACE
If Facebook Were a Science Project
Just. This is just... okay, we know you like Facebook. And that’s fine. Most people do. But now there’s a Web app that analyzes things like the age, gender, geographic distribution and average post length of your friends. It’s all ridiculously scientific and dead serious. It may even ruin Facebook. Your call, though.
A Chair Made Out of Whiskey Barrels
Whiskey barrels: great for making whiskey. And apparently, Adirondack chairs. Apparently. Because now there’s a guy in San Diego making them by hand out of white oak sourced from whiskey barrel staves. You should totally consider drinking whiskey while you sit on one of those. That’d be neat.
Some Seinfeldian Things for Your Wall
You’ve seen Seinfeld before. You know, that one show. The one with the Soup Nazi. And Beef-A-Reeno. And a bunch of other randomly quotable food-related scenarios that someone just based an entire series of minimalist art prints around. They’re for your walls. Unless you hate Seinfeld, then never mind.
