DesignByHumans: Human Nutrition Facts T Shirt.

Perfect. Needs an option for “gluten free”, methinks.  Don’t want to make any celiac grizzlies ill.

CultWestern: Western Wear Without The Douche - Essential Western Belts.

I like basketweaves as dailies. Nice reference to Big Bend Saddlery ... spent a lot of time in Alpine in ‘78.  Great place for real Western gear. Bought my first mulehides and bullhides at Cowtown there ... before “Urban Cowboy” pushed the prices of boots sky-high.  My mules were $25, the bulls $35. Still own the bulls, resoled thrice.

Coolist: Trakke Jero Yurt is a 21st Century Cabin for Cool Camping.

Replacing the traditional lattice and cloth with thin plywood. Kinda brilliant. Best for temporary use, of course. I like it.

BikeEXIF: Indian Scout by Analog Motorcycles.

Sweet. Read the text to see how custom is actually is (styrofoam bucks from which the aluminum artistes crafted tank and tail, for instance).

Barn Finds: 1955 Porsche 356 Continental.

Oh, ouch. I can, however, double down on their estimation of eventual worth. Fixing it to concours shape, you could make a tidy profit on the project. Six figures virtually guaranteed.

Observer.UK: Why I love my Leica.

That kit was invented 100 years ago this year in Wetzlar, a small town in Germany, where a 35-year-old technician invented a camera that would shape the way we perceived the world for the rest of the 20th century.”  100 years of Leica, that optimal form-factor. Longer read, short for a history, eminently worth it.

Vogue.UK: Kate Moss Champagne Glass Coupe 34.

To celebrate the supermodel’s 25 years working in the fashion industry, Mayfair restaurant 34 has modelled a champagne coupe on Moss’s left breast.” Okay. Consider this as further invigorating my ‘eclectic’ cred. I have your breast interests at heart.

Vintage oil cans, on Flickr.

Wonderful.

Note, I’m adding a long-needed category ... “Vehicles”.  Since I post so frequently about autos and motorcycles lately. I’m not going to update old entries right now. Strictly a ‘from this point on’ addition.

The Airship: Simple Reasons Why You Should Read Physical Books.

What’s happening with me is, I’ll take a chance on an ebook based on price (not that much of a savings, really).  I hit upon a book I really, really like - it gets purchased as a physical volume. Not only for sole ownership, but also for the ability to share it easily. I hate holding up a Kindle to someone and saying, “here’s the passage I was talking about” and then have them grab the touchscreen by mistake, sending me into the ebook ozone. I do note, however, the double-profit to the publisher with this method.  I wish I could predict whether I’d like a book or not from the cover ... but you know that old saw.

Coolist: The Sexy Renovo Coupe Electric Supercar is an Instant Classic.

You’re paying about $1,000 per horsepower, for a sticker price total of $529,000.” An electric Daytona coupe. I wish everyone writing about electric cars would automatically mention the range first. That’s still one of the most important things we need to know.

Flavorwire: Stunning Writing Studios.

Chock full of clichés. Writing comes best for me in places and times where I’m at least slightly uncomfortable. I need something to drag me to the pen or keyboard.  Give me a comfy chair, a nice view ... forget about it.  The muse goes on vacation.
