Sexy Cars, Talking Pictures and Swimsuits

The weekend ordered you a five on rye.

Your Pictures Can Talk Now
THE VOICE

Your Pictures Can Talk Now

Anyone can take a picture. Point. Snap. Done. And that’s fine. But turns out, there’s a new twist on the whole picture-taking thing... your voice. Yes, you can now take a picture, add five seconds of audio and send it via Facebook, Twitter or email. Voice captions are the new caption-captions.

There’s a Beach on Your Swim Shorts
SHORTS STORY

There’s a Beach on Your Swim Shorts

Speaking of pictures, someone just superimposed a bunch of those on your swim shorts. That someone: Orlebar Brown. Those pictures: a different summer-themed print every month—think Slim Aarons shots of beach scenes from Jamaica and Monte Carlo. Wearing Monte Carlo in Monte Carlo, now a thing.

A New Shrine for Cars. Sexy, Sexy Cars.
CAR MAX

A New Shrine for Cars. Sexy, Sexy Cars.

There’s a new museum opening this weekend in Washington State. Which is about as exciting as making toast. Until you throw in the fact that it’s the largest automobile museum in North America—complete with 3,500 cars (1921 Model T, ’42 Chevy Blackout...) from Harold LeMay’s personal collection. Then it’s great.

Resurrecting Politicians’ Deleted Tweets
THE TWEET IS ON

Resurrecting Politicians’ Deleted Tweets

Politicians. They’re a slippery lot. In fact, it’s probably a good idea to keep an eye on them. By stalking their deleted tweets. And hey, here’s a new website that does just that, by bringing politicians’ accidental/embarrassing tweets back from the dead after they’ve already been deleted. You’re like Twitter Columbo.

A Big Red Olympics Survival Kit
LONDON CALLING

A Big Red Olympics Survival Kit

The Olympics are coming up. And maybe you’re in them. Then again, maybe you’re definitely not. Either way, there’s a big red rucksack you should know about. Mostly because it’s an Olympics Survival Kit filled with things like a raincoat, a disposable camera and... some coconut water. So yeah, only the essentials.
