. . . with a cherry on top.

May 31st, 2008 · Comments Off on . . . with a cherry on top.

I just got home from the movie theatre. My girlfriend and I took the opening-weekend plunge and caught an afternoon showing of Sex and the City. Despite the pans from various industry reviews, we both left the theater pleased as punch — and a little cramped. We sat in the second row staring up at […]

Bodega, Boston’s (formerly) super-secret sneaker-head haven, is teaming up with Reebok to realease a very exciting, highly limited package they’ve dubbed “The Escape Pack.” The project is inspired by the infamous transportation method known as The Chinatown Bus, and the lost weekends that usually result from a trip on the bus. Any familiar rider knows that both the […]

5inch.

May 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on 5inch.

When I first discovered these objects, I wasn’t quite sure what they were. Obviously they look like cd’s, but I found myself wondering, why on earth would anyone take the time to screenprint intricate designs on cd’s and sell them? I wondered if they contained music, a film, anything at all. Turns out, they don’t. […]

Sovereign Beck ties.

May 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on Sovereign Beck ties.

I haven’t written a lot about menswear, in fact, probably not at all. But, I had to share these ties by Sovereign Beck of Brooklyn.

Salt pigs.

May 29th, 2008 · Comments Off on Salt pigs.

You probably use salt everyday, but where do you keep it? In a salt shaker? In the store-bought container? Well, I keep my salt (sea salt that is) in a salt pig. Since salt doesn’t ever go bad (unless of course the dreaded moisture invades), the salt pig keeps the mineral on-hand at all times, […]

Do you wear contacts?

May 29th, 2008 · Comments Off on Do you wear contacts?

Did you know that contact lenses were invented (well technically it was only a sketch) by Leonardo Da Vinci? No? Neither did I. Interestingly enough, LensShopper.com highlights both the history of contacts and comparison prices on contact lenses from around the Web on its Internet site. So, if you wear contacts, or if you’re just […]

Headed to Europe? Lodging for Less.

May 28th, 2008 · Comments Off on Headed to Europe? Lodging for Less.

Despite the rising fuel prices and decreasing value of the US dollar, it is still entirely possible to take a European vacation — you just need to know where and how to skimp. My boyfriend and I are going to Paris and Amsterdam in the fall. Instead of staying in a hotel, we decided to […]

SPAM: An Economic Indicator?

May 28th, 2008 · Comments Off on SPAM: An Economic Indicator?

How do you know when the economy is in a downtrend? When the price of SPAM tops out at $2.89/can. This picture, published in the Metro, was recently taken at a Braintree, MA grocery store. Unbelievable.
