Gear: Undrcrwn Web Shop
The hoops-head Philly outfit’s just opened their e-doors, serving up tees like “First Team All-Hood”, their NCAA spin on the five-name shirt (including “Jalen & Chris & Juwan & Jimmy & Ray”), and “What Happens in Colorado Stays in Colorado”, which, if it doesn’t refer to Kobe, presupposes that something happens in Colorado. Pick up the duds at Undrcrwn.com.
Drunken Events: The Beer Festival Calendar
This constantly-growing directory currently lists 500+ worldwide excuses to swill brews all day, complete with locations, festival links, and “highlights”, which in Helsinki means “international beer celebrities” (Spuds McKenzie? Alex from Strohs? They won’t leave my dog alone with that Medina.). Plan your summer around BeerFestivals.org.
Gadgets: Lasonic iPod BoomBox
Plug in your ‘Pod and power your street party with this retro’d-out ghetto blaster, complete with an AM/FM tuner, EQ adjustment, mic input, and remote. Remember though: this party is BYOBB (breakdance board). Pick one up at Lasonic.com.
Blowing Cash: How I Spent My Stimulus
This blog tells tales of how various people blow their $600 of free government dough, from the deludely wasteful (a full set of Pontiac Grand Prix headers), to the Heston-ish (a used Glock w/ extra magazines), to a war chest that could easily’ve been bought by the guy who pushed through the legislation (Jagermeister, RedBull, glowsticks, a vibrator, and weed). Ttell your tale at HowISpentMyStimulus.com.
Culture: Spam Art
Check these hilariously literal artistic interpretations of spam subject lines, e.g., “hi pyramid in your pants eat a strip and be like an egyptian god” (hieroglyphics on a steak), “I hope your thing is as big as a camel�s buy” (camel kissing a woman), and “girls like when it big” (cupcakes, thank the Lord). Very rad SFW spam art at Spamblr.Tumblr.com.
