The Weekender

Pinup Girls, a James Bond Store and Pinup Girls

The weekend just tripped the light. And it was fantastic.

Where Your Favorite Band Is Playing

Right now, you’re listening to “Lady” by Kenny Rogers. You just are. And after you get this new Spotify app called Bandsintown, you’ll be able to drag that song over the app icon and immediately see a list of his upcoming shows in your area. Note: this also works for... other musicians.

Hundreds of Pinup Girls. Enjoy Them.

The pinup girl. Now there’s a girl. All half-dressed and smiley and great. It’s no wonder someone decided to publish a ginormous three-volume book series in her honor. It’s a gloriously exhaustive exploration of the pastie phenomenon from 1900 to 1969. Plenty of pictures, too. Plenty of pictures are nice.

James Bond: The Store

There’s a James Bond store now. It’s online at Bench & Loom. It’s just like a normal store, except completely different. Meaning you can stock up on things like a recreation of the sheepskin leather jacket Daniel Craig wore in Skyfall, and a... 1967 Aston Martin. “Stock up” might’ve been the wrong term.

Doing a Good Deed for Your Feet

Here’s what you’re about to do for your feet. You’re about to procure an inappropriately dashing pair of Phigvel horsehide engineer boots for them. Just order them online from Hickoree’s and some people in Japan will go to work cutting, painting and sewing them for you. Happy walking-around-looking-miraculous.

NOTHING BUT MET

Visiting the Met from Your Desk

If you can’t make it to the Met this year, no worries. It’ll come to you instead. You see, they’ve got this new web series where they’ll release two mini videos each week, highlighting different works from the museum. A quick biweekly hit of culture, if you will. If you won’t, it still is.
