The Julian Scarf

Winter is upon us, why not keep your neck warm with the Julian Scarf by the Wintercheck Factory? You've probably got a drawer or closet full of scarves but I doubt you have any scarves that come with discrete zip-up pockets. Exactly. I've got the red one and it comes pretty handy when you don't want to pack your pockets full of phones, mp3 players, cameras, etc. Available here.

In case you didn't see...


Fantastic Mr. Fox

Just caught Fantastic Mr. Fox this weekend and I have to say that it lived up to its title. Great voice-acting, animation, directing, and most importantly of all, it was great fun. Wes Anderson has done it again and this ranks among his best work. Make time for this and you won't be disappointed.

Qixen-P UNI Watch Concept

"The folks over at Qixen-P have come up with an idea for a watch that let’s you be in control of how you see the time. The concept is called UNI and features a 96 x 96 pixel, full color OLED screen that is totally programmable and customizable." from Kitsune Noir

I hope this moves forward from concept into actual production.
