Things to do for April 24, 2014
Sexy Stares, Mean Balloons and Other Weekend Madness
The weekend may contain peanuts.
The Next Move Takes St. Louis
Sometimes you find yourself in St. Louis. With the need to dance. Or eat toasted ravioli. Or whatever, really. Point is: our award-winning, night-enlightening app, The Next Move, just landed there to help you figure it all out. And if you never find yourself in St. Louis, well... this is still happening.
A Phone Charger That Charges Your Car
Picture it: your phone just died. And to make this made-up scenario worse, your car battery just died, too. But to make matters excellent again, here’s a portable charger that revitalizes smartphones and tablets as well as jump-starts automobiles. Nice try, hypothetical scenarios.
Human Emotion, as Told by <em>The Office</em>
The Concept: You provide this website with an emotion or mood (happy, sad, sexy...), and it
responds with a YouTube clip of a character from The Office giving a stare that matches that
The Reality: Pretty damn accurate, actually. And amazing. And terribly not-conducive to midafternoon productivity.
Balloons That Say “You Are a Douchebag”
“I hate you.” “You are a douchebag.” “You’re adopted.” Those are things you’d never say to someone, even if you meant it. But they’re also the exact quotes you’ll find on these fancily typefaced balloons designed with varying degrees of menace. Hate balloons. Who knew...
It’s for Your Coffee Table. It’s Nice.
Here’s a book. You’ll like it. It’s full of pictures taken by a photographer named Robert Lebeck who was really good at snapping candid shots of people like Pelé, Alfred Hitchcock and Maria Callas back in the day. That’s all we got. Enjoy.
