The Weekender

Denis Leary, Spring Shoes and More Cowbell

The weekend is having mint juleps on the roof.

ChatRoulette for Fun and Profit
LET'S BOUNCE

ChatRoulette for Fun and Profit

By now, you've heard of ChatRoulette, maybe even dabbled, and then realized it's a little too... ChatRoulette-ish. A reason to reconsider: the sweet, sweet smell of money. This site's basically ChatRoulette, but you earn tips for performing on camera. We have no doubt this will prove very lucrative for you.

More Cowbell, the Website
SAVED BY THE BELL

More Cowbell, the Website

A mere 10 years after it first aired, the legendary "More Cowbell" sketch from SNL has finally fulfilled its purpose. Come to this site, upload any MP3 you want, and you can add as much cowbell as you think it requires. And frankly, the only prescription... is more cowbell.

Introducing the Iceberg Lettuce Safe
KEEP IT SAFE

Introducing the Iceberg Lettuce Safe

You have valuables. You have a fridge. You might even have vegetables inside that fridge. And now, next to those: a rubberized safe that looks like lettuce, the ideal place to hide those valuables from carnivorous burglars. Well, assuming they didn't read this.

Your Spring Shoes
HAPPY FEET

Your Spring Shoes

At Connecticut-raised shoe empress Rachel Comey's new e-commerce store, you can, at last, shop for her spring-ready oxfords and brogues while witnessing each pair on a pair of dancing feet. It's where Serge Gainsbourg would have shopped, if he had learned how to use the Internet.

Introducing the Top-Secret Knife
BLADE OF GLORY

Introducing the Top-Secret Knife

Like Crocodile Dundee before you, you're prone to finding yourself in situations that require knives. (BBQ, last-minute whittling contest, spontaneous remake of the "Beat It" video.) Be prepared with this thing, which comes hidden inside an ordinary-looking key. Just don't try to open your house with a knife.

Denis Leary Joins Twitter
DENIS THE MENACE

Denis Leary Joins Twitter

After years of sarcasm, cursing, talking about Boston, being angry and more cursing, Denis Leary went serious and got a dramatic television show. Happily, his new Twitter stream has more to do with the cursing and sarcasm. (Sample post: "To celebrate Earth day I spent three hours picking up trash. Started to feel a little bit like Jesse James.") Welcome back, Denis.
