The beauty of beer is very much in the hand of those holding the glass. From the pouring to the storing, from the crushing of the cans to keg stand, from beer pong to beer bong, The Book of Beer Awesomeness ($13) is the definitive guide to beer drinking and could well be the bible for all brew lovers. Written by those experts who brought us The Book of Beer Pong, and featuring stacks of games of skill, memory and strategy and feats of fortitude, along with a host of other challenges and activities, this book is full of cup-flipping, kings-playing, frosty-mugged fun.
This is a great weekend in the city outfit. It starts off with a J. Crew Slim Heathered Slub Cotton Shirt and builds on it with a pair of the brand's Selvedge Jeans in Raw Indigo. The New Balance kicks in Raw-Steel add a nice touch, but the focal point of this fit is the Mismo Utility bag. You can never go wrong when pairing navy with a good dark brown leather.1. Shirt: J.

Urwerk takes what you know about watches and turns that knowledge on its head. The radical design of the Urwerk UR-110 Eastwood Watch ($TBA) continues their unique tradition by telling time through the use of vertical indicies for minutes and an orbiting satellite complication that rotates the hours around the watch face. The correct time always show in the right side of the watch. Additional features include day/night and oil change indicators, a black coated Grade 5 titanium case with Macassar ebony, topped off with a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The Urwerk is a larger watch measuring 47mm x 51mm x 16mm and is only water-resistant to about 100 feet. If I was going to pay six figures for a watch, I doubt I'd even risk it in the shower.
The Filson Wedge Tent ($1000) from the professional craftsmen at Filson is just the thing you need for a comfortable outdoor shelter whatever the weather. Its rugged looks would be ideal for a military re-enactment but it suits just regular camping as well. The heavy material will easily stand against even the harshest weather including rain and snow and it’s mildew resistant as well. It also features a heavy and secure zipper to keep you warm and secure at all times.
The Loop Animation App ($1) lets you do quick and dirty frame based animation from you iPad. You not only have the ability to do free hand drawings but you can download video frames that you can trace over for cool animated effects. The resulting animations are 320px x 180px gifs that can be shared on Tumblr or Loops own gallery. I haven't had this much fun for less that $1 in a long time. Check out the available tools after the break.(more…)
