Buying Dracula’s Castle and Michael Jackson’s Glove

The weekend is thinking about getting into the drone game.

These Go on Your Face
BROWN AND OUT

These Go on Your Face

The sun. It’s warm. It’s friendly. And overall, it has good intentions. But it can come on a little strong sometimes. Like this pun. Anyway, you’ll need Orlebar Brown’s new line of sunglasses. They’re all handmade and battle-tested on the Amalfi Coast. So... feel free to conduct a follow-up test.

Because Your Beer Deserves Better
TUMBLER FOR YOU

Because Your Beer Deserves Better

Consider the koozie. It’s... well, it’s a koozie. Nothing to see here. Unless it comes in the form of a rather elegant tumbler modeled after the Machine Age like this one. It’s got hand-sewn detailing and leather and everything. Let your “Ashley and Rob, July 12, 2010” koozie down easy.

ROCK MARKET

All of Rock and Roll Can Be Yours

There’s an embarrassment of rock-and-roll riches going on the online auction block this Saturday. A Rickenbacker guitar played by John Lennon and George Harrison. Michael Jackson’s crystal glove. A jumpsuit worn on stage by late-era Elvis. Maybe don’t play or dry-clean any of those.

Well, Dracula’s Castle Is for Sale
VAMPIRE DIARIES

Well, Dracula’s Castle Is for Sale

Dracula’s castle in Transylvania is up for sale. If you’re thinking weird summer house, good thinking. And now, your figures:
Year of construction: 1212 AD
Number of rooms: 60
Number of bathrooms: not as many
Annual income generated from tourists: $3.75 million
Odds you’ll eat Count Chocula in the breakfast nook: strong to very strong

The Internet Did It Again
REVENGE OF THE WORDS

The Internet Did It Again

Perhaps you’ve noticed that the word “literally” is literally used way too much on the Internet. You’ve literally had it up to here. Well, this browser plug-in will automatically change the word “literally” to “figuratively” every time it appears on your screen. Which is litera... okay, we’re pissing ourselves off now.
