Put a little originality into your next beach outing. The Matt Singer Indigo Beach Blankets ($90) are block printed and dyed with indigo, which results in a lightweight, super soft cotton blanket.

The Faraday Porteur Electric Bike ($3500) doesn't even look like it has a battery. Unlike most electric bikes that look like skinny electric scooters this guy looks like your standard everyday bike.

With a flip of a switch you can turn the assist off to use as a standard bike. The Porteur also features a US-made steel frame, standard 26 inch, 35mm tires, and weighs 39 pounds. They're taking orders now with delivery expected late summer.

Big thanks to who ever leaked the Comic-con footage of the Suicide Squad Trailer ($TBA), because it compelled the big wigs over at Warner Brothers to release the official trailer online. The 3 minute trailer features Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis. They all play supervillains who are forced to protect the city from the real bad guys. And in comes Jared Leto's crazy ass version of the Joker. There were some grumbles on the internet when the first pictures of Jared Leto's character appeared on line, but realistically, he may have been the only choice to follow Heath Ledger's Oscar winning performance. I don't know of any other actor who could have pulled it off. Enjoy.https://youtu.be/Ue4PCI0NamI
