…People love the ampersand?

The Ampersand

The Ampersand is an entire blog dedicated to “the most attractive punctuation mark of them all”.

Apparently this scribal abbreviation is more popular than I would have thought; because people have ampersand tattoos, take photographs of ampersands, document strange ampersand uses and appearances, and more.

I guess if it exists, someone probably has a blog about it…

…It’s Movie Monday: Time Well Wasted?

Time Well Wasted

The “lay on the ground and film from above” style of video production is becoming more popular lately, and for good reason.

    Maybe you’ve seen this concept used before and maybe you haven’t, but you definitely haven’t seen it used this exhaustively and to such a dynamic extent and with a shirtless Geeves. Filming took up the entire month and everyone involved pulled their shit together like when you’re driving home after a few drinks and (suddenly!) you end up face to face with an Officer of the Law at a roadblock or, perhaps, the scene of your accident.

Check out this intro for the snowboard movie “Time Well Wasted” that was created by Sandbox, and see why it was recently awarded “Best Video Opener” by Future Snowboard Magazine.

…Canouflage makes it easy to get drunk in public?

CanouflageCanouflage is probably one of the best (and funniest) ideas I’ve ever seen: Simply wrap your beer in a vinyl cover that looks like a popular soda brand, and then chug away at what appears to be a harmless 12 ouncer to the outside world.

Available “flavors” include Skunkpiss, Risk, Peski, and Mountain Spew, and they come in packs of four that are also reusable in case the thirty pack that you bought is going to need some extra hiding.

…It’s Things Thursday: Casio G-Shock?

Casio G-Shock

Despite (or perhaps because of) their ‘80s/retro style and unique look and functionality, Casio’s G-Shock watches continue to be popular among the hip and trendy.

Their latest series of limited edition watches, the G5500C series (aka Vivid Colors), features a unique solar technology which “combines a super sensitive solar panel with a high capacity rechargeable battery to power high-load functions”.

The solar technology also powers an auto light that illuminates the display automatically when the watch is angled towards the face (and only when available light is below a certain level).

There are three colors to choose from, and other features of the Vivid Colors series include shock resistance, 200M water resistance, World Time (48 cities), 4 Daily Alarms and 1 Snooze Alarm, Hourly Time Signal, Countdown timer, 1/100 Sec. Stopwatch, 12/14 Hr. Format, Battery Level Indicator, Power Save Function Tone and Button Tone Operation On/Off.

Get yours online and nationwide for just $120.
