Nike just started releasing these guys earlier this year. Now they've just released another colorway. The Nike Lunar Internationalist - Cargo & Medium Olive ($150) features an upper that is made from fabric and suede overlays that give them a very cool vintage feel. Along with the white swoosh they whole kit sits on a white midsole that has a hint of orange on the heel. These kicks will look awesome with pretty much everything in your wardrobe, especially your favorite pair of khakis.
I like buying props that I've seen in movies. One of my favorites is the Inception Totem ($5) that Leo uses in the film Inception. In the movie the Leo uses the totem to tell if he is in the real world or still dreaming. I picked mine up about a year ago and I was surprised how long this thing actually spun. My longest spin time was close to 3 minutes. Pick one up and let me know how you do.
Forget the girly cocktails and spirits with a mixer and start to drink like a real man; and an old man at that! Get a few of these Old Man Drinks ($11) down and that baby's bottom that passes for your chest will be sprouting hair in no time. From Sidecars and Boilermakers to Satan's Whiskers and Rusty Nails, these old school drinkers go down in as rough a way as they sound. There is no room for foo-foo umbrellas or pink drinks in this book, just good ol' stuff such as bourbon, gin, rye and whiskey, along with a hefty dose of life lessons. It's time to man up, grab that stool and settle in for a long long night.
Over the period of a decade, Malcolm Gladwell wrote three books which radically changed how we understand both ourselves and our world: Blink, Outliers and The Tipping Point.

Now his landmark investigations are brought together for the first time in Malcolm Gladwell: Collected ($80).

Alejandro Salomon is a Mexican entrepreneur who founded a successful investment fund, and manages his own real estate, tech, and production company. But his passion is for film and cars. His latest endeavor is the Hyper 5 Series ($FREE). It will be a three part series that puts to rest the question - What is the fastest supercar?The series pits the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Pagni Huayra, and the McLaren P1 in a battle for supremacy. Each of the cars will go through a series of independent tests on a track and drag strip. And in the end there will only be one.In the first segment, Alejandro introduces you to the contestants and gives you a little background on each car's history. For the first time, we get to see all of these cars on the same track. Although this is a great lineup, I can think of some other cars that should have been included.
