Perks is getting you first dibs on the WOWee ONE Pro, a tiny wireless speaker that turns any surface into a pounding subwoofer. (Travel case included, naturally.) We’re also sending you a silly amount of Pat LaFrieda short ribs from his Meat Men show, and handmade hardwood cases to hug your iPhone.
Things to do for May 03, 2012
Scandalous Motels, Marilyn Monroe and Happy Cufflinks
Truffle does the weekend shuffle.
Clothing-Deprived Women. In Motels.
Good news. You can finally call off the search for a photography book comprised of over 160 images of mysterious women going about their business in seedy motels. While not placing much emphasis on the wearing of clothes. Because... well, that exists now.
Your Vacation Plans Just Got Too Easy
Vacation. Great word: vacation. And considering you’ll be on one of those soon, you’ll want to know about Match—it’s Airbnb, but with way more search options (standard vs. helipad hot tub) and the ability to send mass messages to the homeowners. Staying in strangers’ homes should always be this non-creepy.
Amazing Pictures of Amazing Things
Auctions are the best. You get to hold little paddles. Look all serious. Say things like “Yep.” Unless it’s online, then you just click a button—like at this one, where you’ll bid on iconic-y photos like a disrobed Marilyn Monroe or Andy Warhol in a manhole with Edie Sedgwick. We know. But no.
Hey, Thumbs-Up. Hey, Cufflinks.
When it comes to expressing yourself, there’s no shortage of options. Let’s see, there’s the smile. The frown. The motherf**king emoticon. Oh, and silver cufflinks in the shape of a thumbs-up. You can get those from Paul Smith now. So you should get those from Paul Smith. Now.
Your Bourbon’s Final Resting Place
So there’s this woolly craftsman guy. Lives in California. Smells like varnish. And he’s got this online shop filled with a little bit of everything—lamps made out of pipe, furniture made out of wood. Also, handmade walnut coasters that say things like “Bourbon Parking Only.” A bit obvious, but sure.
