…It’s Things Thursday: The Floppy?

The Floppy

The Floppy is a soft skinned golf ball that’s supposed to be used indoors. Forget what your mom told you about not playing with balls in the house, and swing away, because the design of The Floppy allows it to mimic the feel, feedback and action of a real golf ball, while the softness means that it won’t hurt your chosen target. It’ll work wonders for your wedges, and lower your score faster than you can say fore, so break out the clubs and get to practicing, because Tiger doesn’t take days off.

…You should read 1000 Journals?

1000 Journals Cover

I was going to make this my Things Thursday post, but I think it’s so cool, I don’t want to wait. The 1000 Journals Project now includes an amazing book that documents many of the best contributions. The project, put on by Someguy (that’s his artist name), involved the release of 1000 blank journals into the wild, covered with just an artistic drawing and instructions to add anything that the current owner felt was addable. The journals were then passed on and around, gifted or left, and continued on to new places and new people.

1000 Journals Inside

In the spirit of artistic freedom, anything can be added, which means that the content is as varied as the people who have contributed, though this is what adds to the project’s charm. Just as an example of what you can expect, the journals have “been the subject of treasure hunts (#354), brought to remote mountaintops (#323), abandoned at airports (#001), left in the lost-and-found (#300), and stolen at gunpoint (#949)”. It’s an ongoing affair, so many of the journals continue to float around even today, but if the artist can get enough of them together, he plans on putting together a traveling exhibit to show off the work.

Also be sure to check out the movie, 1000 Journals, that is documenting the journals’ travels and the effect they have had on peoples’ lives (and the effect people have had on the journals’ lives).

…It’s Things Thursday: Harry Potter?

Harry Potter

It’s the end of an era. Harry Potter has reached his seventh and final installment, and on July 21, 2007, when he enters the Deathly Hallows, his reign as king of childhood reading will come to an end; and with that end, the series and the story must come to a close as well. All beginnings will have their endings. All loose ends will be tied up. All will be revealed. Or maybe not. Maybe, J.K. Rowling has one last trick left up her sleeve, and on July 21, the dream will live on in the hearts and minds of readers young and old across the country. Thankfully, Amazon is holding a pre-order to end all pre-orders, guaranteeing that you’ll be the first on the block to lay your hands on what’s sure to be a hot piece of literary property. Get ready, the magic is coming.

…It’s Things Thursay: Carma Sutra?

Carma Sutra

When I first saw the cover of this book, I though it was a well executed and well Photoshoped joke. Strangely enough though, it’s an actual book, with actual advice for how to get it on in (and possibly on) a car. Insights include the obvious, like avoiding gearshifts and seatbelts, to the more heavily researched, like the best cars (Lincoln Town Car, Volvo V70), and the worst cars (Honda Insight, Ford GT). There are illustrations and advice for over 20 makes and models, from compacts and sedans to hybrids and SUVs, and there are even two included double-page gatefolds for taxicab eroticism and limousine service. If you’ve been looking to rev up your sex life, then maybe this glove-compartment-sized guide is just the ticket. Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.
