After watching a video tour of The One mega-mansion, a soon-to-be complete 105,000+ square foot “home” reportedly valued at $500 million located in Bel Air, I was literally blown away by the sheer size and total excess of it all. If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to live in a home that could double as a high-end hotel — complete with a full-size nightclub, insane LA views, and enough space to easily host a couple thousand (or more) of your closest friends post-pandemic, you’ll enjoy this insanity.
Most nights (and more often days) I dread cooking for myself. I’ve heard that meal plans can reduce the urge to spend money going out to restaurants, so when I found the opportunity to check out Veestro, a Vegan meal subscription plan, I was eager to see how it would fare for a person who’s never been a Vegan.
This is a picture of my infected tooth. The tooth is gone now, but there’s a debate raging on-what do you see in this picture? I’ve been told it looks like a jellyfish, but Judie’s husband says he sees a rifle. So in the Rorschach test that is my x-ray, what do you see? Jellyfish? Rifle? Something else?
We’re still more than a few months away from Christmas and the other stereotypically gift-giving holidays, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start shopping early. Plus, there’s nothing stopping you from picking up a few ‘just because’ gifts — except perhaps, the challenge of not knowing what to get for someone. With that in mind, here are a handful of quirky gifts for the person who has everything — they’ll never see these coming!

Earlier this week, Elon Musk tweeted out that he was considering taking Tesla private and indicated he had funding available. Tesla stock flew up only to fall when it wasn’t clear if this was really happening. Within just a few days, lawsuits were filed against Musk for manipulating Tesla stock illegally. Musk’s tweet may have opened an enormous legal issue.
Tomorrow is Cinco de Cuatro, and Netflix is releasing a reworked Arrested Development Season 4 to celebrate. To whet your appetite, Ron Howard gamely narrated a mashup of Star Wars and Arrested Development, and it’s the single greatest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

Indigo Books might not be a household name in the United States, but they are extremely well known in Canada. Much like Barnes and Noble in the USA, Indigo is the last bookstore standing for our neighbors to the north. B&N needs to step it up, though, because Indigo is coming to America!
“Dinner and a show” has a new meaning in 2017, at least that is the case at Punch Bowl Social in Austin. To that effect, the innovative restaurant chain, Punch Bowl Social, is integrating immersive VR experiences with their dining experiences.
Sometimes corporations take stands simply because it is right. After Charlottesville, CEOs made a loud statement that the only right response to Nazis and White-Supremacists is condemnation by resigning from a Presidential Advisory Panel. That was a big deal. Today, an Anheuser-Busch brewery in Georgia stopped brewing beer… and started canning water for those affected struggling after Hurricane Harvey.
Based out of Philadelphia, Copper Spirits send me over two of their rare and fine spirits to check out: The Slow and Low Rock & Rye, and their Hochstadter’s 1884 Family Reserve Straight Rye Whiskey. And as a bourbon and whiskey lover, it’s worth mentioning, these are two of my new favorites, for different reasons.
My son dug an old camera out of one of our drawers, and he’s been snapping non-stop photos since then. Most are blurry, but a few are decent, and one or two are surprisingly good!
For some odd reason, the folks at Hammacher Schlemmer seem to think my household is the ideal market for their catalog. We’re not sure why, but I look forward to the excellent insanity that arrives each year, and this year my friends at Hammacher Schlemmer have simply outdone themselves.
It’s a very tense Election Day for America, so the Washington Post has helpfully added a bit of levity by investigating a key question: Can astronauts who are in space vote?
Everyone loves Star Wars, and there’s nothing more symbolic of the series than the weapons brandished by the main characters, the light saber. Thanks to Ultrasabers, you can bring home your very own light saber starting at around $150, equipped with bright LED lights, authentic sound effects, and hilt designs that look like they came straight from the silver screen.
Even though I’m the biggest Whiskey enthusiast I know, I still have love and appreciation for a good vodka from time to time. So when Minnesota-based Beet Spirits sent over their BET VODKA spirit, I was pretty excited to switch it up from dark to light again. Founded by Ben Brueshhoff and Jearad Poling, the two friends created what is a very smooth tasting vodka. Now I’m no expert when it comes to spirits, but as a casual (and very social) drinker, I can for sure distinguish the bad from the good, and Bet Vodka is certainly the latter. Created…

I’ve always wanted to visit Sweden. The country is beautiful, socially progressive, and whether it’s just a stereotype or not — I have it in my head that the people there are generally very friendly. The Swedish Number, a new project where you can call and speak to a random Swede about anything, just reinforces that stereotype.
Are you always trying to figure out what that random number is that’s calling you? Well if you have any aspirations of getting yourself a Galaxy S7, you’ll be happy to know that Samsung has partnered with Whitepages to help you out with that caller ID problem!
Seems as if Kanye West is in full self-promotion mode for his never really finished album, “The Life of Pablo” which was released on Sunday through streaming service “Tidal“.
