Restoration Hardware is now offering a Tournament Dartboard Set ($279) that will kick up the decor of any rec room.

Nano House ($23) contains 40 examples of ingenious, responsible and advanced homes that each have less that 650 sq ft of living space. Housing is becoming a real problem due to lack of space. In growing cities space is at a premium due to new businesses whereas out in the country we are doing our best to preserve both nature and the landscape. In the world's most impoverished areas economical and sustainable living is a necessity and something we rarely think of in this digital age until we are in the position where we have the basic human need for a roof over our heads. This is a fascinating look at how we can fulfill this need by having a living space that is efficient, ecological and flexible.
Mike Posner is one of my favorite artists. Not just because he's from my old stomping grounds of Detroit, but because he's one of the most honest artists I know. After five years of dealing with the trials and tribulations of the music industry and taking a long hard trip towards self awareness and acceptance he's finally released his latest LP Mike Posner - The Truth ($4).If you don't know Mike, in 2010 he released two of his biggest hits, Please Don't Go and Cooler Than Me. His earlier efforts are marked with a distinct Hip Hop feel, while his latest releases I would describe as au naturel. His naked true self laid out for the audience to either reject or accept. There's not pretense, just beautiful, honest lyrics aligned with great beats.Be As You Are is beautiful, but the other songs are equally amazing (I Took a Pill In Ibiza, being one of my favorites). For $4 bucks, The Truth is a no brainer. Also if you're going to be in the Philly area on July 29th, you can check Mike out doing an unplugged set at Milkboy, 1100 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA. You can buy tickets here.https://youtu.be/v1tSfQbtKMU

If you're familiar with the James Bond movies then you know the Aston Martin DB5 is one of the most iconic cars of the film series. The David Brown Speedback GT ($TBA) looks to take that same look and bring it into the modern era. The Speedback GT looks almost identical to the original, but it's been stretched to fit over the Jaguar XK chasis and features the supercharged 5.0-litter V8 from the KXR. With that engine you'll get 510 horses, a top speed of 155 mph, and a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds. David Brown only plans to build about 50 of the cars each year so make sure you order well in advance.
One word comes to mind when I look at the New Balance 530 - Navy Suede ($110); smooth. These new kicks being offered by the guys over at Need Supply are icy smooth. These classic silhouettes feature a premium suede and mesh upper, with a tan contrasting heel back. The two-toned midsole adds a nice pop to the shoes overall presentation. Head over to Need Supply and grab a pair before these bad boys run out. They'll look great with your favorite pair of jeans or joggers.
