Your Perks: 1) A new pair of summer sunglasses. They’re 100% handmade and 20% off. 2) Portable battery cases and packs to keep your phone charged for twice as long. Because it’s a marathon... 3) Smokeless fireplaces and mini waterfalls. Also known as the world’s most interesting office decor.
Things to do for June 05, 2014
Real-Life Instagram. World Cup for Dummies. It’ll Make Sense in a Second.
The weekend stole the cookies from the cookie jar.
Like Instagram but Less Online
Sometimes, Instagram just isn’t Insta-enough. Sometimes it doesn’t print actual pictures like an old-school Polaroid or let you change lenses and filters in real life like this new camera from Lomography. It still lets you take pictures of cocktails, though. You’ll always have pictures of cocktails.
Guitars Made from Bridges and Stuff
Reclaimed wood. Dammit. You’re tired of hearing about reclaimed wood. Fender revamping their classic Stratocaster and Telecaster with materials that let you accurately say things like “This guitar was once a 1930s bridge in California.” Dammit. You’re tir... no, actually you’re fine with that.
Making the World Cup Understandable
It’s chaos trying to keep track of the World Cup. You have to figure out teams, players, and don’t even get you started on how to tell when a match is on in your time zone. What you need is a website with all that information in one easy-to-navigate format... wait.
The Hill-side Wants You Looking Smart
It sure is a convenient time to be wearing pants. Related: the Hill-side just came out with some new belts made from those lovely Japanese fabrics of theirs. Floral prints. Pastel-striped prints. Lots of prints. They also made watch straps from the same fabrics. Which makes it a convenient time to have arms.
If They Had Tumblr in the ’80s
Thankfully, the ’80s happened. And thankfully, here’s a rather fantastic Tumblr of graphics from the era. It’s stimulating. Think flying through space filled with neon lights, rainbow fades and a young Sly Stallone leaning on a Lamborghini Countach. Go ahead. Think it. It’ll be great.
