Want to watch all those episodes of 30 Rock piling up on your DVR? At long last, there's an App for that. It costs 30 bucks—more than any other iPhone App—but we'll go ahead and say it's worth it to catch up on Liz, Jack and Co.

White People, Axes and Vintage Cameras
The weekend is boom boom pow.
If you're looking to procure logs for your cookout the old-fashioned way, there's this new line of cool, customizable axes handmade in Maine. They're designed by Peter Buchanan-Smith—you might recognize his work from a Wilco album or two—and sold at Andy Spade's hip Partners & Spade shop. (Not in New York? They're also sold online.)
File under: inevitable—a site that does for consumerism what thisiswhyyourefat.com did for pigging out: made it hilarious. The site collects the world's most ridiculous luxury goods, from paintball guns covered in Swarovski crystals to the $2800 Pizza Royale 007. Helpfully, the site sorts by price—ranging from $ to $$$$$.
Now that Polaroid is no more, you need a new vintage film source to make last night's sleazy snaps look almost arty. (We said almost.) Introducing the VistaQuest, a digicam that re-creates the effect of taking a picture with an old Holga camera. Naturally, it's Japan-only, but the site below can hook a Yankee up.
This new Tumblr blog documents all the pesky little things that drive people—particularly well-off Caucasian people—crazy: ill-fitting Ray-Bans. Panera Bread's Asiago cheese fixation. The banter on Leonard Cohen live albums. Think of it as Stuff White People Don't Like.
