Effing Cool Cards

Ever send a card to somebody and feel like it was missing a certain… oomph to it? I mean, you can say “I Miss You”, but that could mean anything. Do you miss the person a lot, a little bit? It sounds like not very much.The card does not specify. With The Effing Card Company’s line of “Effing Cards”, you can make yourself pretty clear, (“I Effing Miss You& …

Ultra King Luxury Custom Beds

The thing about king-sized beds is that, if you’re into dating Olympic volleyball players and acrobatic sex, they can still be just a little bit cramped. Or, let’s say you like to toss and turn when you sleep, but you don’t want to disturb your partner? And let’s say that they’re a hyper-sensitive paranoia-stricken light sleeper and you’ve got wrestles everyth …

Players Only Jacket

When somebody calls you a “player”, there’s a few things they can mean. They might be referencing the definition best exemplified in the 1997 Bill Bellamy classic “How to Be a Player," a guy who gets a lot of women.Or, a player could be somebody who engages often in the art of video-gaming, which debatably is not as cool sounding as the first definition. But it could b …

Blade of Glory

Join the wet shaving revolution. These days most guys flick a switch on an electric razor and just go nuts: it requires no steady hand, attention to detail, or risk of cutting an artery in your neck and trying not to get bleed.Where’s the fun in that? Our grandfathers would scoff at us. Some real men have realized this and are returning to the old-fashioned (and more manly) way of removing h …

Live in a Glass House

Barton Wyatt has a place for sale now that is symbolically and architecturally jaw-dropping. This “glass house” isn’t literally made from 100% glass, but it’s close. Located in St Ann’s Hill outside of London, this property is built, basically, as two larger circles, and around the outside of each are shockingly-open floor-to-ceiling windows. It comes with 5.6 acres of land, also, so even thoug …

Adidas Star Wars Sneaker Collection

Adidas has married two oft-maligned subcultures in a way that, at first blush, seems ridiculous. But, after some consideration, it doesn’t take much Force at all to get these two groups together. The groups, of course, are Star Wars geeks and sneaker collectors, and Adidas’s collection is, predictably, called the Originals x Star Wars Collection. It idea is to take classic Addidas favorites fro …

How about a cap that supports a different kind of team, namely “the world’s most fearsome fighting” one: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.Now, some may suggest you purchase these caps as the perfect gift for a young child; we disagree in that we think they are the perfect gift for an old child, namel …

Delicious Suds

Remember when you were a kid, it was always a chore to get in the tub and scrub down? Hearing mom filling that tub for you was like marching blindfolded to a firing squad. Bathtime was the antithesis of fun.BUT, odds are if your mother told you you could take your bath in, say… Ecto Cooler, you would have been all about it. But you're older now, and don't drink (as much) Ecto Cooler. But be …

What You Need in Your Home Bar

We don’t discriminate when booze is involved. And you shouldn’t either. ‘Bottoms up!’ is a motto we should all embrace. However, when setting up a home bar, a lot of you blokes somehow screw it up. Just vodka and some Jack Daniels knock-off won’t do -- unless you hail from the trailer park or a dry county (yes, those still exist in this country).  So if you’re drinking by yourself or throwing the  …

How to Dress With Vampire Style

"Daybreakers" is coming out soon, and to be honest, it's going to kick both human and vampire asses all over the place.  It's a mouth-kick well placed in the grill of the emergent daemon of teenie-bopper vampires, and we'll be first in line when the blood truly begins to flow.  But, that's not to say that teenie bopper vamps have nothing at all to offer us. If you Google vampire fashion like we …
