Pulp Fiction, Your Face as Emojis and Flying Around the World

The weekend is going to make this pastel thing work.

Just Some Bags and Shirts That You Need
JACK OF SPADES

Just Some Bags and Shirts That You Need

Piet Mondrian: known for his grid-based paintings. This new collection of shirts and bags and things designed by a Brooklyn-based artist for Jack Spade: known for kinda sorta looking like black-and-white versions of his paintings, only in shirts-and-bags-and-things form. Right... the point. The point is that they’re nice.

You. Flying Around the Planet. Kind Of.
SOLAR DERBY

You. Flying Around the Planet. Kind Of.

Right now, two pilots are attempting to set a record by circumnavigating the globe in an entirely solar-powered airplane. They’re currently grounded in China due to weather, but they’ve got about five months left, and you can follow their journey in real time on this site. That was the part about a solar plane.

Well, Looks Like You’re an Emoji Now
EMOJINE THAT

Well, Looks Like You’re an Emoji Now

Your face is an animated emoji now. Just is. And that’s because this app enables you to record yourself winking, waving and doing whatever else it is emojis do, then save the GIFs in your smartphone to be deployed whenever the time is right. Which is probably never, but still.

In Case You Missed It...
QUICK REWIND

In Case You Missed It...

On Kempt: Pulp Fiction came out in 1994, and you still don’t look like Butch Coolidge. No more excuses. Also, here’s your raincoat. April and all.
On Driven: Here’s a ’76 Riva motorboat built for Sheikh Hamad-al-Thani and a vintage Ferrari that looks like it was pulled out of a cereal box but wasn’t.
 

The Snow Melted and Left These Sales
SALE’S PACE

The Snow Melted and Left These Sales

Stag: Make the code “25EXTRA” happen and suddenly a bunch of baseball tees and stuff become 25% less than already-on-sale items. That code really nailed it.
Faherty Brand: Cardigans. Work shirts. Boardshorts—all yours for 50% off. Well, yours and whoever else is reading this.
