In recent years there has been a trend for producing the prequels to successful movies, think Star Wars for a prime example, and Prometheus ($13) follows this trend as it is the prequel to the Alien series of movies. An exploration team discover the origins of mankind on earth and their journey leads them to the furthest corners of the universe and a fearsome force that nobody knew existed. Thus follows an epic battle to save the human race. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Naomi Rapace, Logan Marshall-Green and Michael Fassbender, this is a fascinating insight into what brought about the Alien series, as well as being a stand out movie in its own right.[button color="red" text="white" url="http://muted.com/100-top-movies-every-man-should-see/" window="_blank"]CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE LIST OF THE 100 TOP MOVIES EVERY MAN SHOULD SEE[/button]

The Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen SS14 Lookbook ($TBA) is out and the pieces are made up of prints, patterns, and materials that capture the best of California sports and loungewear. The shoot actually takes place on the coast of Southern California and is photographed by Mike Carreiro.
The collection features bomber jacket, blazers, pants, baseball tees, and much more. I wouldn't put this collection into the street wear genre. It's more modern with hints of street influence. The collection is available today from Shades of Grey online shop.

I'm a sucker for anything associated with industrial applications that can be used for the home. Steel Canvas has been building high quality and long lasting canvas baskets, hampers and bags since 1921. The Carhartt x Steele Canvas Laundry Cart ($279) takes their quality and Carhartt's design philosophy to create a great product for carrying everything from firewood to your dirty cloths. The Cart is available in one size (18" x 18" x 21") in black or natural.
Audio-Technica is known for producing high-end USB turntables. In February they'll be releasing the Audio-Technica ATH-D900USB USB ($385) headphones. What makes these headphones unique is that they come with a built-in 24-bit DAC. The DAC sits in the left ear cup and utilizes a Burr-Brown PCM1791 op-amp. Additional specs include 53mm drives that have a frequency response of 5Hz-35,000Hz, which is just nuts. Not to worry if you don't have a need for USB headphones, these also come with a 3.5mm jack so you can plug them into any of your audio devices.
