Your Weekend Justice

Sloshing through the swamp of pop culture so you don’t have to. We bring you ideas for how to waste your weekend.

Of course, special thanks go out to Clutch for letting me use their absolutely badass song, “Promoter (of earthbound causes)” as my theme music for this.

Buy Blast Tyrant, which is where you can find “Promoter”. Buy their latest album, Pitchforks and Lost Needles. Send them love and coin.

BTW, you iTunes subscriber types can nab this feed here.

Efrat Gommeh’s Lock Cup: Because the Coffee Cup is Sacred, People

Coffee lock cup

Efrat Gommeh is a designer who solves problems. Here, it’s the problem of people who steal your coffee cup. Around here, coffee cups are sacred objects. So stealing them is a huge no-no.

This, however, is ingenious. Each cup comes with its own key. Remove the key, and there’s a hole in the cup, dear Liza, dear Liza. And who wants to walk off with a hole-y coffee cup? See? Ingenious.

Scientific Scents: But With a Delicate Floral Hint

J. Robert Oppenheimer

Scientific American has published a list of colognes that would exist if scientists had their own fragrances. It’s pretty damn funny–what you would see if scientists were celebs instead of “entertainers.” And honestly, you’d watch the hell out of a reality television show that had Richard Dawkins and Phillip E. Johnson living together in a house for six weeks, wouldn’t you? Admit it.

Anyway, as an example, the tagline for Stephen Hawking’s “Universe” cologne is “You don’t have to understand it.” Brilliant.
