    Hot Wheels Zoom In Car Has Built-In GoPro Mount (Video)

    When I was a young Hot Wheels fanatic, I would have flipped my metaphorical wig if there had been a way for me to sit behind the wheel of my precious tiny vehicles and see what a driver of such cars would see as they hurtled along my hastily assembled racetracks and obstacle courses. Children […]

    Coca-Cola Clear Debuts in Japan (Video)

    It’s been a while since the nation of Japan gave us another reason to be envious of their food and beverage innovations. Now, everybody who misses that brief period when Crystal Pepsi was available in grocery stories has just such a reason, with the debut of Coca-Cola Clear.  Coca-Cola Clear was reportedly conceived by Coke’s Japan […]

    ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ Season 6 Trailer (Video)

    It seems like only yesterday that I heard about a new Voltron series coming to Netflix. But actually it’s been a little over two years since the show premiered, and now we’re already on the cusp of a sixth season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, a trailer for which is now online. In case you’re up on your Voltron […]

    ‘Moonshot VS.004′: A $2500 Porcelain Basketball

    I’m pretty sure my old grandad used to say “that’s about as useful as a porcelain basketball” when he saw something that he deemed pointless and/or useless. But sculptor Victor Solomon and ceramicist Brock Deboer have teamed up to make a real porcelain basketball, a limited edition piece called Moonshot VS.004. There are only three Moonshot VS.004 sculptures in […]

    ‘Bumblebee': ‘Transformers’ Star Gets Solo Outing (Trailer)

    In the Michael Bay Transformers film series, Bumblebee is sort of like the Method Man or Tom Kenny of the ensemble: A clutch player that audiences love and just naturally fits into the role of breakout star. So it figures that he would now get his own movie, and now we have a teaser for that inevitable event to tide […]

    Red Robin Offers Free Food to Teachers Today

    Summer has officially begun, which means it’s one of the only times it’s unambiguously sweet to be a teacher. So it seems like kind of a weird time for burger joint Red Robin to roll out a free food promotion for teachers — wouldn’t it be better to do it during the school year, when they could […]

    Netflix Title Request Feature Revealed

    We live in something of a golden age of media availability, but there’s still no avoiding the feeling of really wanting to see a movie or TV show and not being able to find it anywhere online.

  • A.1. Meat Scents: Meat-Scented Candles

    A.1. Meat Scents: Meat-Scented Candles

    The phrase “meat candle” makes me think of some lost William Burroughs novel, but actually it’s something slightly less disturbing: A line of meat-scented candles from A.1. Steak Sauce. They’re called A.1. Meat Scents, and the only bad news is that as of this writing they appear to be all sold out. As per the […]

    ‘Widows': New Trailer for Crime Thriller (Video)

    Ocean’s 8 is not the only movie this year about a group of women getting into the field of crimes for profit. It turns out there’s another film about that concept, one that’s sure to be a lot more intense than the comedic caper of an Ocean’s… movie. It’s called Widows, and here’s what it’s all about: “Widows is […]
