We love things that are made to last and the Seamless & Steadfast Enamel Steel Plates by Best Made ($35) are the best enamelware on the market. Each plate is baked using World War Two ear machinery. You get a seamless finish on a heavy steel plate. The edges which get the most wear have been reinforced with double the enamel. Plates come in packs of two for $35 or $90 for a pack of six.

Adam Carolla is a man on a mission; he had had enough of the insanity that exists in modern America. The ability to reason has been removed thanks to the crystal rubbing, Oprah-watching, wholefood shopping moms and their whipped into place lawyer husbands. In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chick's ($10) is Carolla's comic gospel on life in America today. A society who views a peanut and jelly sandwich as the spawn of the devil and thinks the bathroom is no place to pee. This is an excellent book that cements Carolla's place as one of our best comedians/cultural commentators/complainers. An absolute gem.
The guys over at Kustom Research out of New York have taken a stock 1978 CX500 and turned it into a beautiful machine. The Honda CX500 By Kustom Research ($TBA) was completely rebuilt by Thomas Parrish. We've come to expect great work from a number of customizers, but what stands out about this bike is a beautiful monochrome color scheme that features white rims, & headlights, and the main highlight, a white, grey, & black tank with the companies logo. When looking at this bike you can tell no detail was left untouched.
When you think MB&F couldn't possibly take their watches to another level they do just that. Their latest futuristic watch is the MB&F's HM6 Alien Nation ($500,000). They've actually turned one of their watches into a mothership complete with aliens.THE HM6 Alien Nation features a sapphire crystal which sits on a platinum case. The engine is made up of 496 components with 68 jewels. It has a Flying Tourbillion with retractable shield and provides up to 72 hours of power. The Alien Nation version of the HM6 comes with its own aliens in white gold and a case that utilizes MB&F's Ambient Glow Technology which gives the sapphire a blue glow.Now the sad news, besides the price. There were only four pieces made and rumor has it they've already been sold. Here's hoping they come out with a second run.
