The Weekender

Bardot, Hot Sauce and Cold, Hard Cash

The weekend already misses Hightower.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE

Hanging with Bardot and Ali

That time you made popcorn with Paul Newman: undocumented. Brigitte Bardot in your bathtub: missed that shot, too. Fortunately, other photos of these people exist—in fact, the Impossible Cool is now offering shots of those two and eight more of the last half-century’s coolest people. Photoshop yourself in later.

Your Drink, on a Pile of Cash
HARD CASH

Your Drink, on a Pile of Cash

Money: great for paying down what you owe to China. Even better for preventing rings on your coffee table. The latest example: these MoMA-approved coasters are made from out-of-circulation cold, hard American cash. Should go great next to your chaise lounge made of euros.

Your Secrets: Published. Then Destroyed.
WEB OF SECRECY

Your Secrets: Published. Then Destroyed.

The Internet: not known for privacy. Until now. Publish a secret—maybe about that time with [redacted] in the supply closet—to this site, and it’ll create a temporary link, which will automatically disappear at your appointed time. Then again, you could just tell someone your secrets.

HAMMER TIME

Getting Serious About Hammering Stuff

What you need is a hammer. And not one of the MC variety. We’re talking about the good old-fashioned kind, like this 19-ounce bad boy with a coveted straightened claw and a handle made out of Tennessee hickory. We assume that’s all good for hammers.

Puerto Rican Mountain Hot Sauce. Yep.
THAT’S HOT

Puerto Rican Mountain Hot Sauce. Yep.

At a certain point, you’re ready to graduate from Tabasco. When that happens, we suggest looking in the mountains of Puerto Rico (yes, they’ve got mountains), where this stuff comes from. It’s got habanero, garlic, peppercorn, vinegar... and probably hellfire.
