Bedol Water Powered Alarm Clock


This is for people who want to go green in literally every aspect of their lives. However, rather than writing this off as some sort of fad, it also makes a lot of sense. All you need to do is–literally–add water. Not only do you never have to worry about batteries again, but you’re also helping our the environment, it just makes so much sense.

Plus, at $16 dollars does it get much better than this? It comes in a bunch of colors, too. Pick one up here.



Those Cutaway Collars


You know those dress shirt with the crazy cut-away collars? Ralph Lauren sells them only in his purple label line for $325ish; Lino from Al Bazar (pictured above) sells them for around €70 ($92).

How about buying one from Brooks Brothers for $67?

It’s slim-fit and comes in a crazy lavender and perfect white. You can check them out here.

Ideas for Spring


That is Tommy Hilfiger, yes, he still makes clothes. This picture is actually from last year, but it doesn’t matter. Note that his white bucks’ soles are not huge. The light-colored buttons on his jacket, and the pale salmon colored pants; this is spring fashion.

A funked up, better dressed version of Maroon 5 with a hint of…well, listen for yourself.

Even ‘Ye has given his stamp of approval.

Springtime Lovin’

Spring time is finally here (well, not exactly). Not only are buds blossoming, but that young lady you’ve been cozied up with all winter may become permanent. Something like a formal date is due, so here’s a couple ways to go about a picnic. I’m sure it will  impress your lady friend while capturing the essence of the new season:
Note: The dopest blanket you can find is essential for this date. See “Real Men Dig Picnics”

  • Breakfast Bungalow: Early riser? Try making it out for a breakfast picnic. A step up from your basic pancake/waffle stint, a crepe is a good direction to go. A thin pancake, if you will, crepes are very easy to prepare (they literally take about a minute to cook). Some prep is required the night before, but it’s worth it. Served hot or cold, crepes can be filled with absolutely anything. Pair this with some fresh fruit and some mimosas (OJ if she’s not into morning bubbly) and you’re set. Sneak in an opportunity to embrace while enjoying the crisp morning air.
  • Buddy Brigade: Depending on your situation, your crew may or may not be familiar with your gal. If they are, all the better. You all can catch up and grab a bite to eat. If not, some lunchtime shits-n-giggles would be fitting. This will give everyone a chance to know one another, while keeping things casual. Either way, she’s bound to have a good time. The awkwardness that can possibly arise when flying solo on a date can also be avoided in this situation.
  • Bedtime Brew: Too busy during the day? My favorite of the three, a night-time picnic, is a great option. Head out to the most romantic little spot you can find – a small nook nestled among the trees, somewhere overlooking water, a gazebo if you’re really lucky. To make sure you guys can actually see one another, I suggest some LED candles (safety first!). Bring along some wine (or beers…or soda…or whiskey. shit, whatever you’re into) and your game face for this one. If she’s a free-spirit, nothing will be more fun than a game of Ultimate with a glow in the dark frisbee. Sky’s the limit with this date!
Now I can only give these three – the rest are up to you. But take heed, my friends, and she’ll be with you in no time…

I’ve been a longtime fan of McBess’ work and damn do I wish I had a few couple hundred to kick around and snag one of these sexcellent pieces.  None-the-less, if you do have the dough and share my sentiments, this post is for you.  Check out some of his artwork on sale here.
