Five bucks. That’s how much a full year of Fast Company is going for—including unfettered access to its mobile content—on Perks. Plus, in time for spring: 25% off dapper cashmere sweaters from Christopher Fischer and up to 40% off handmade, Italian leather boots from Peter Nappi. You know what to do.
Things to do for March 07, 2013
David Lynch, Yachts and a Town for Sale
You’ve got to fight for your right to weekend.
An Entire Desert Town
They say real estate is about three things: location, location, location. But we think you’ll make an exception for the 41-acre, population-539 town of Searchlight, Nevada. It’s currently for sale—casino, motel, dilapidated brothel and all. You’ve been meaning to get into the dilapidated brothel game.
David Lynch Made Some Art for You
David Lynch. Acclaimed director. Meditation evangelist. And apparently, a pretty savvy lithographer. For the past six years, he’s made some weirdly entrancing prints. And now they’re all for sale. Bug families. Moon clowns. They’ll make great additions to your walls. Or a really terrible Mother’s Day present.
Breaking and Entering. Handsomely.
We have no reason to believe you need a fully functional lock-picking set made of old band saw blades. Nor do we have any reason to believe you don’t. But just in case, here’s a New Hampshire–based artisan who’ll make you some. If you want, he’ll embroider your initials on the leather case. Nothing could go wrong with that.
There’s Nothing but Yachts Here
Schooners. Yachts. Catamarans. Dinghies. You love them. But someone loves them more. And that someone created the world’s first online TV channel dedicated solely to vessel tours, interviews with sea captains and silent footage of ships rocking at sea. Can’t believe the Internet didn’t think of this sooner.
Belts Worthy of an Argentine Cowboy
Forgive our bluntness, but... you are not a gaucho. You don’t herd cattle in southern Argentina. Which means you don’t own a finely woven, cognac leather belt—or you didn’t until we told you about these. Go ahead, make your Patagonian-cowboy dreams a reality. Or just hold your pants up very dapperly.
