Things to do for October 21, 2010
Hit Records, Science and Fall Sweaters
When the weekend calls, you pick up on the first ring.
Thank-You Notes, Written by the Internet
It happened again: the debut of your latest one-man play, Busey, was a rapturous success. And now you have to send 500 thank-you notes to everyone who supported you. Stop by this site, type out something heartfelt (or quick), and a team of grandmothers will start handwriting cards. They have remarkable penmanship, trust us.
Turning Your Phone into a Music Studio
Groupies. Pharmaceuticals. Mixing boards. Yes, your apartment is a magical place. But let’s talk about recording studios. Here to bring you all that (minus the groupies and pharmaceuticals): an app that turns your iPhone into a music studio. You can edit samples, tweak live audio and loop beats. Go ahead and layer in that cowbell.
Introducing Ginger Ale Cologne
When someone’s résumé includes making hashish cologne, you want to know what they’re up to next. In this case, it’s pairing Mexican lime and vetiver with... ginger ale. Fresh, seasonal and not at all illegal. We’re almost positive Mexican lime isn’t code for contraband.
Going Full Bieber on Your Phone
You’ve seen some majestic creatures in your time—lingerie models wearing angel wings, multicolored unicorns, Selleck’s ’stache—but none can match the awe-inspiring power of Justin Bieber’s hair. And now, even a mere mortal can don the coif—you’ll download this app, and you can put it on anyone you please. You’ll be happy to know we mean virtually.
