Some timeless arguments—Beatles vs. Stones, Ginger vs. Mary Ann—require hours of debate. For the rest, there's this novel site, on which you make snap judgments between seemingly unrelated items (Hall and Oates vs. Ashley Olsen; liquor vs. the Washington Post). More interesting are the most and least popular results, which reveal shocking news that Lil Wayne is only slightly more popular than hell.
Things to do for May 28, 2009
Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll (T-shirts)
The weekend is May's last chance.
We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when…we began playing a Hunter S. Thompson–inspired board game? Believe it: you play as characters from the book (we call Dr. Gonzo), and draw "dosage" cards that tell you how much (fake) "ether" to consume. Of course, at about $3500, drugs really ought to come included.
The most accurately named site on the world wide web, this so-stupid-it's-brilliant concept is devoted to side-by-side images of, well, explosions and boobs. Think of it as something to tide you over until Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen arrives in theaters.
Soundscreen Design, based in (where else?) Brooklyn, created these elegant tees by pairing graphic designers like Scripop and Jay Ryan/The Bird Machine (pretend you've heard of 'em) with indie bands like Deerhoof, The National, and Battles (pretend you've heard of them, too). The results: soft, handsome organic-cotton tees custom-tailored for a decidedly un-roadielike fit.
If you remember those pinup girl pens that let you undress (and, we suppose, dress) a girl by flipping it upside down, then you pretty much understand the concept of this iPhone app. Which, of course, doesn't make it any less enjoyable.
