Father’s Day, covered: we’re hooking you up with 30% off Swiss-made timepieces from Tsovet, plus 30% off classic ’70s-style polos from Boast (John McEnroe’s a fan). Finally: a three-pack of Bacon Explosions (bacon-wrapped sausage marvels) for the price of two. These are some powerful Perks.
Things to do for May 31, 2012
Sexy Cars, Talking Pictures and Swimsuits
The weekend ordered you a five on rye.
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
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.
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
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
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.
