Things to do for January 03, 2013
Leather, Scotch and Steve McQueen
There’s no weekend like the present.
These Lollipops Have Scotch in Them
Ah, lollipops. Just thinking about them makes you 10 times more likely to hate baths and have a name like Timmy. Good times. Good memories. But hey, someone just made some Valrhona chocolate ones with 12-year-old single malt scotch in them. So you’re still good. You can still like lollipops.
No Bells. No Whistles. Just Leather.
There’s this new online shop. It has four things: a wallet, a belt, an iPad case and a key chain. It’s all vegetable-tanned leather. And every piece was cut by hand. And every thread was stitched by hand. And every... anyway, it’s really nice stuff. Probably best to own some of it.
Well, if It Isn’t a Bunch of Shanks
If there’s one thing you miss about not being able to buy handmade prison shanks made by industrial designers, it’s not being able to buy handmade prison shanks made by industrial designers. Which is why you’ll be happy to hear that you can... do that now. So there’s that.
This Thing Will Make You Jog More
If one of your New Year’s resolutions was “Procure an aesthetically pleasing little blue thing that monitors my heart rate, blood oxygen level and respiratory rate as I do things throughout the day and then shares it with my Facebook friends,” then you’re in luck. Also, that’s a really specific resolution.
Owning Steve McQueen’s Motorcycle
A 1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross motorcycle once owned by Steve McQueen. That’s what we’re talking about here. And should you be the highest bidder in the Bonhams annual Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction next week, you can own what we’re talking about here. And that would simply be fantastic.
