By the power of Perks, you’re getting nearly 100 bucks off a seven-speed bicycle that folds up in 10 seconds flat. Not to mention some Eric Ripert–approved Israeli caviar only available twice yearly, along with 20% off a Wired-magazine-approved wireless speaker. Let the “Dancing in September” playlists commence.
Things to do for September 05, 2013
Penélope Cruz, Jack Nicholson and John Lennon’s Clone
All work and no play makes the weekend a dull boy.
Apparently, Jack Nicholson Is Retiring
And now, a hypothetical scene from Jack’s hypothetical retirement:
Int. Staples Center. Or Kodak Theatre. Or some yacht in Cannes.
[Dons shades. Arches eyebrow.
Flashes a devilish grin. And walks off into the sunset.]
Penélope Cruz Made a Short Film
The time-stamped highlights from Penélope Cruz’s directorial debut:
0:45: The moment you realize this is some kind of lingerie ad.
1:05: The moment you realize nobody at this party is shy.
2:52: Obligatory lingerie pool party with an outdoor shower and a fake giraffe.
4:00: Hey, it’s Javier Bardem.
4:10: And... apparently, it was all a dream.
Some Guy Is Cloning John Lennon
Meet Dr. Michael Zuk. He’s a Canadian dentist. Who bought John Lennon’s molar for $30,000 at an auction a while back. Now, he’s planning to use it to reconstruct the singer’s DNA and clone him. Leave it to a Canadian dentist...
Changing Coffee into Booze
So a couple of scientists just figured out how to turn some used Portuguese coffee grounds into an 80-proof spirit. Our suggestion: use this stuff in your Irish coffee. And don’t ask too many questions.
Snoop Lion. Virtual Weed. Weird.
Calvin Broadus Jr. Aka Snoop Dogg. Aka Snoop Lion. Aka... the guy who got a bunch of people to pay a C-note for nothing more than a golden, sparkling cartoon joint via his iPhone app. Which goes to show capitalism is alive and well. And ridiculous.
