Things to do for April 26, 2012

The Weekender

Models from the ’50s. Models from the ’70s. New Shoes.

Quoth the weekend, nevermore.

There’s a Party in Your Pants. Kind Of.
KLOUT NINE

There’s a Party in Your Pants. Kind Of.

The virtual popularity gurus over at Klout have been busy lately. Tinkering. Milling about. Hovering over your Facebook comments with monocles. But mostly, building an iPhone app. Finally. Which means now you can track your real-time social influence score from the comfort of your own pocket. Your public needs this.

This Pertains to Models. And Backsides.
HINDSIGHT

This Pertains to Models. And Backsides.

This is the story of a new photography book called Bunny Yeager’s Beautiful Backsides. The end. Actually, we left out a critical plot twist. Specifically, the one about 213 vintage images with a particular emphasis on the posteriors of ’50s and ’70s models. Okay, now the end.

Your Feet Will Thank You Later
WE BOUGHT A SHOE

Your Feet Will Thank You Later

Take a good, hard look at your feet. Exactly. Your feet-to-maroon-boat-shoe ratio is way off. The fix: hit the Saturdays Surf NYC website for a quick perusal of their new canvas high-tops and poop-deck-friendly ankle huggers. Or main deck. Whatever you’re comfortable with.

Accessing Secret Files with Your Voice

Your laptop. It’s a cyber-y Thunderdome of encrypted coordinates, water balloon launch codes and damning photographic evidence (we assume). All the more reason to protect its contents. With your voice. Yep, it’s a USB drive that can only be accessed by whispering sweet password nothings into its ear. Or its microphone.

And Now, Some Judgmental Soap
HIGH SOAPS

And Now, Some Judgmental Soap

You can tell a lot about someone by the type of soap they use. Especially when it comes in scents like Winner, Mediocrity and Loser. Exhibit A: these new soaps-on-ropes from Need Supply Co.—Winner smells like champagne and lemon. Loser smells like beer and bitters. So... kind of a win after all.
