The Weekender

Dirty Harry, the Puffy Shirt and Guitar Picks

The weekend marches to the beat of its own keytar.

Punching Your Own Guitar Picks
PICK AND ROLL

Punching Your Own Guitar Picks

When it comes to being a rock deity, the ability to play “Voodoo Child” ambidextrously is only half the battle. You’re also gonna need a look (the chain mail jumpsuit is a start). You’ll begin small, using this pick puncher to make yourself custom guitar picks from just about anything. Allow us to suggest your fifth-grade laser tag ID card.

Facebook Rejection Goes Public
YOUR -1

Facebook Rejection Goes Public

Accountability. It’s always gone hand in hand with the Internet. And now, with this script that runs directly on your Facebook page, you’ll be able to see in real time if someone unfriends you. Rare. Shocking. But you kind of expected some collateral damage after the pictures from that apple-bobbing incident went viral.

The Required Works of Eastwood
IN LIKE CLINT

The Required Works of Eastwood

You’ve always had a surefire method for judging a person’s true worth: the size of their boxed set. Case in point: Clint Eastwood’s newly released collection contains a whopping 35 movies (Dirty Harry, Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven). That’s thick enough to stop a bullet from an oversize Smith & Wesson.

Buying and Selling Inventions
PATENT PENDING

Buying and Selling Inventions

You have an idea. Without saying too much, it involves a pulley, a rubber chicken and the engine of a 2010 Maserati. So you’ll go to this auction site, a place to buy and sell inventions and transfer developing technology. All without the requirement of a legal patent. Which probably explains how there’s something called “fist revolvers” for sale.

A Bird Feather-Stuffed Shirt for Fall
DOWN UNDER

A Bird Feather-Stuffed Shirt for Fall

It’s not getting any warmer. The jacket has been broken out, and it’s not going back. Pretty soon you’ll have to take drastic measures against the cold. Maybe even something as extreme as a button-down shirt packed with down feathers. It’s like carrying a bed on you at all times. Which makes office power naps that much better.
