TAD Gear Titanium Skeleton Key

Not sure if the TAD Gear Titanium Skeleton Key belongs in my other blog since it is a quasi every day carry item but it's a pretty cool looking work of art in it's own right. Machined out of 6AL-4V titanium billet and rocking a laser engraved TAD Gear Terminator Skull graphic the Skeleton Key features the following goodies; flathead screwdriver tip, pry tip with nail puller, bottle opener, and a spanner wrench tip that fits all regular Strider Folding Knives. This would be a cool addition to any key ring.

Tip of My Tongue

Tip of My Tongue
is a cool useful web application that has helped me guess words that were on the tip of my tongue. While not the be-all-and-end-all to the phenomenon it's a pretty handy tool.

Lily Allen: It's Not Me, It's You

Just downloaded the new Lily Allen album from Amazon. It's a great album although I really wish Amazon would state the fact that the album available was the edited clean version. There was no mention on the product page and it took me wondering past the first few songs why the lyrics were getting bleeped. I'm going to have to repurchase the album later on today at Soundwaves. Tisk tisk.

Jessica Hische

Fantastic work from Jessica Hische, I love her sense of typography and hand-lettering. You can check out her portfolio here. It's very precocious.

Typewriter Cufflinks from The Weekend Store

Torn between your inner book/lit dork and being a serious business professional type person? Let some of your word fetishism peek through with these jazzy cufflinks from the Weekend Store.

Made from the keys off of vintage Smith Corona typewriter these cufflinks really add character. Sorry, I really couldn't resist. Really.

The HAL Project: HAL 9000

The HAL Project is great recreation of the iconic HAL 9000 interface from Stanley Kubrick's 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968). I especially like the Jupiter Mission Report and screensavers. A fantastic homage.

Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band

Although they're not really from Vietnam, not even close really, this band has a pretty cool sound. I'm definitely looking forward to when their LP debuts in March.

Awesome HD trailer for Transformers 2. There's a youtube version floating around but I love scrubbing through the 1080p version from Apple.
