Your Perks: 1) An umbrella that can resist gale-force winds. Though maybe you should just go inside if it comes to that. 2) Button-ups from the one and only Jared Lang. You like them. 3) A specially engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Platinum. Say it with whiskey.
Things to do for August 27, 2015
Beer, Bowie and Football-Season Flasks
What do you say, let’s get the old weekend back together.
Ask and Beers Shall Be Given
You: I found a beer I really like. But... it’s only available in Kingston.
Us: Oh, well, submit it to this new site, Barrel Backers. If other users are interested in that beer, too, you’ll be able to preorder some. And if other users preorder some, too, they’ll send those very beers to your door.
You: Beer help is the most important help.
Turn Anything You Say into GIFs
Open Giftawk’s website (in Chrome, because apparently they have a thing for Chrome) and speak into your computer’s microphone. See what happens.* (*Anything you say will be turned into GIFs. A glorious/absurd series of GIFs, representing each word that leaves your mouth.) Sorry, couldn’t help ourselves.
A Little Bit of Bowie
Here’s this signed, limited-edition book from London photographer Mick Rock: The Rise of David Bowie. It chronicles Bowie’s quick rise to fame in ’72-’73, in many previously unseen photos of Bowie backstage, and Bowie onstage, and Bowie nowhere near a stage. In conclusion: Bowie.
Football. Flasks. Football Flasks.
In case you missed it: Football season is imminent. Here are the flasks you’ll want to have on hand when it comes.
Three Bits of You-Buying-Stuff News
1. LA’s famous Fred Segal now has a
website where you can buy their things. Very 2015 of them.
2. You didn’t even ask for 60% off these button-downs, tanks and sneakers, but Rooney’s doing it anyway.
3. First, go to the Supply & Advise site and type in the code “EXTRA40.” Next, get an extra 40% off sale items. Proceed to do other things.
