Things to do for January 17, 2013
Skiing, The Godfather and Tom Waits
Few weekends try for best ever, and this is one of those.
Just a Comically Nice Bottle Opener
You might think you need a bottle opener this weekend. Wrong. What you actually need is this despicably handsome, handmade piece of cap-slaying art cut from a single piece of solid brass. For two reasons. One: only 144 exist in the world. Two: that 1974 vintage High Life ain’t opening itself.
You: Driving Sonny Corleone’s Car
If you’re in the market for a four-wheeled cinematic treasure (and who isn’t these days), good news: the 1941 Lincoln Continental Coupe James Caan drove in The Godfather is up for auction today. It still looks just like it did in the tollbooth scene. Yes, they’ve fixed the bullet holes.
The Sharpest Nonlethal Knife Ever Made
Back in seafaring times, sailors were given knives without points so they couldn’t stab one another. Now in modern times, Best Made is giving you just such a thickly edged knife, mounted on solid rosewood. It’s great if you’ve got some rope to cut. Terrible if you’ve got enemies to shank.
Looking Good on the Slopes for 25% Less
When forced to choose between looking more excellent in Vail or possessing slightly more disposable income, there’s only one logical option: Owner Operator’s annual 25%-off-the-whole-damn-store sale. Just peruse their pages of NYC-made skiwear superiority, pay less than normal and proceed to looking 100% more awesome. Hell, maybe even do some skiing.
A Rare Pictorial Ode to Tom Waits
Anton Corbijn: famous for his black-and-white photographs of rock stars. Tom Waits: famous for his looking unspeakably badass in them. And now there’s a whole book of pictures Corbijn took of Waits over the past 30 years. Plus a bunch of other photos Waits took. And no songs Anton sung.
