GIZMON: iPhone vintage camera case.
Clever marketing. Get one to match your Nikon Df.
Fancy: MacCase Premium Leather Flight Jacket.
Pricey but solid and no-nonsense vintage.
Kickstarter/BEDJET: Ultra rapid warming & cooling pleasure for your bed.
Cold-natured? Perfect gift.
Youtube: McLaren P1 vs. the Nurburgring.
Nice price, find a good tailor to take it in properly. Via Valet Magazine.
Supercharged: Tomahawk Supercar.
Build it yourself; sounds like you need late model Corvette parts to complete it.
SlashGear: “Christmas Tinner” goes viral: authenticity unconfirmed.
Hilarious, even if theoretical.
Lucky Bums: Made In USA Toboggan.
Thought this was pretty neat, until I clicked “Tech Info.” Note the bottom bullet: “Imported.” Made in USA. Imported. Best guess: the wood is imported, but the sled is made here?
Collectors Weekly: What Mannequins Say About Us.
“At the turn of the 19th century, you had bustier mannequins with tiny waists. Suddenly, going into the teens, they got a little more slender. Close to World War II, female mannequins had these broad shoulders. After World War II ended and the soldiers were coming home, all of a sudden the female mannequins were very voluptuous, almost like sirens calling them home.”
Shopping bags destroy your finger capillaries.
We all carry too many bags, way too heavy, and have their handles cutting into our inside finger joints. I’ve just done it again, and bruised a vein in my middle finger. No more. I want to be able to type in perpetuity. Looking at these, and the various alternatives.
Marshall Loudspeakers: Stanmore Black Bluetooth Loudspeaker.
Ya think this would go with a Hemingway-themed office? Big $$ for a Bluetooth speaker, though.
Strobist: Fuji Follow-Up.
Of interest to photo folks. In case you had the Xmas itch in your pants.
ReadWrite: Get Ready For The Streaming-Music Die-Off.
“Ultimately, the record labels are still calling the shots. And upstarts like Spotify, Rdio and the rest are learning that lesson the hard way, calling for sympathy while the shot-callers wring them out. In this old game, the dealer always wins.”
The Atlantic: Another Problem for Amazon’s Delivery Drones? Angry Birds.
I called this first! On Twitter, anyway. Our ravens will make mincemeat of any drone. If they happen to find *groceries* when they take it down, there won’t be any drones doing deliveries in New Mexico. Ever.
Trunk Club: Men’s Clothes Selected By Personal Stylists Shipped Free.
Bike EXIF: Ducati custom motorcycle.
Very pretty. Might just be the lighting, but it is jewel-like. Cleaning it must be a total drag.
DesignYouTrust: Unbelievable Photos from Lamborghini’s Birthday Tour of Italy.
Pretty pictures. I just don’t like the current Lambos; basically everything after the Muira is uninteresting to me.
NPR: Norman Rockwell’s ‘Saying Grace’ Sells For $46 Million At Auction.
Some say Rockwell isn’t a serious painter; indeed, some of his rendered faces could approach caricature. Yet time and again I’m out and about in town and run into a ‘Rockwell face.’ He must have been a keen observer of the human condition. Everyone loves Mary Poppins. I can still admire Rockwell.
Inspirationist: Wattman 200-Horsepower Electric Motorcycle by Voxan.
Lordy, look at that rake angle. Electric weighs a ton, too. Pretty, but this sure ain’t no buzz-around-the-city bike. Designed for a highway. But with 100+ mile range, where are you going to go?
Helvetica, The Perfume.
Amazon.com: Snow Wolf SW0310 Wheeled Snow Shovel.
Forget the snow blower … this may be the answer to my snow shoveling nightmares. Do watch the video to understand how it’s used.
The Pen Addict: Top 5 Pens.
Because I’m always on the lookout for a better writing instrument [even when I type exponentially more than I write] …
A Continuous Lean: Classic Ivy Oxfords Straight From Japan.
Proper skilled single-needle stitching is da bomb. A crispness and level of craftsmanship that can make anyone stand out from a crowd. You do pay a premium for it, usually. These are economical at ~$80. Have to try one sometime. Little use for conventional business-wear in Santa Fe; dress is much more casual, excepting legal or governmental circles.
On Instagram? Make yourself a tinybook that attaches to your refrigerator with a magnet.
CNN: Online company fines couple for negative review.
New legal shenanigans - the ‘non-disparagement clause.’ Fine print has a way of coming back and biting you in the … @$$.
