A word to the wise; if you are planning a bank robbery don't make the rookie mistake of leaving any evidence behind. Heat ($6) tells the story of a group of robbers who learn this lesson the hard way. Starring Hollywood royalty Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, along with Val Kilmer and written and directed by Michael Mann, the title comes from the heat the group feel when they realize they have left a vital clue behind. This is one of the great crime action dramas that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish, it is also the first time Al Pacino and Robert De Niro were ever seen on the screen together, and has probably the best shoot-out seen ever shot.

Go to any market and store shopping for beef and you will be faced by a choice of prime cuts that cost the earth. Crown roasts, racks of lamb, pork chops are all delicious and make us part with our hard earned dollars to pay for them. The problem here is that due to these we tend to forget about, or avoid, those cheaper but distinctly less lovable parts of the beast that are still edible. Brains, bellies, cheeks, gizzards, combs, hearts, hocks, lungs, kidneys, the list just goes on and on. Odd Bits ($23) aims to address this by showing us how to save money and serve up delicious meals using these odd bits, just don't tell the kids whats in it.

The Blacklamp Carbon Watch by Schofield ($15,900) is a limited edition mechanical watch. For the case, Schofield uses a propriety material called Morta. Morta is hand-laid carbon fiber that's formed into small billets. A single billet forms the Blacklamp watch case. Because of this process, every watch is unique. For illumination, the Blacklamp uses a Tritium gas light that emits a constant low-level glow which is invisible during the day and Moonglow, a GLTD material developed by NASA, sits around the rim of the dial. Only 101 of these watches will be made and they are expected to start shipping late December.
