The Drink Tanks Growler ($55) may be one of the best friends your beer ever had. This growler is made to keep your beer or beverage cold for over 24 hours. It is built from 18/8 doubled walled, vacuum insulated stainless steel. You can easily change from a standard bale cap to the keg cap. The keg cap enables you to turn your growler into a mini keg by allowing for CO2 injection and use of the keg tap without having to open your growler.

If the trailer is any indication, The Signal ($TBA) looks to be right up my alley. The movie stars Laurence Fishburne, Brenton Thwaites (Nick), Beau Knapp (Jonah), and Olivia Cooke (Hailey). The movie starts off with Nick, Jonah, and Olivia taking a road trip to Cali and on the way discovering a signal that could lead them to Nomad. Nomad is a genius computer hacker who hacked into MIT when they were students there.
Following the signal, the friends end up at a shack in the woods. Nick and Jonah start exploring when they hear Hailey's screams coming from the car. When they get outside they see something that kicks the movie into high gear.
The next scene is Nick waking up in a wheelchair in a research facility. He is told by Laurence Fishburne that he's come in contact with an Extraterrestrial biological Entity, and that Hailey is in a coma, and Jonah is missing.
Check out the Signal when it comes out this June. When you click the link to the website you need to type 'help' to get the main menu. It's pretty cool the way they set it up to look like a computer prompt.http://youtu.be/WV44-lQGlwk
