Band of Outsiders x Sperry Deconstructed Boat Shoe

LA-based designers Band of Outsiders team with Sperry to turn old-fashioned boat shoes inside out, literally (heh heh heh). Available in the three styles pictured at Tres Bien for stupid amounts of money.

New York Delft by Lovegrove & Repucci

A really cool take on porcelain dinnerware from The Future Perfect collective of designers.  It's refreshing to see innovation like this in an area most people equate with stuffy family dinners at grandma's house.  Stuffy dinners like Thanksgiving, complete with turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, and I forgot what I was talking about before...

Phish Melts Faces, Author Weeps at Setlists

I can't talk too much about this because I am a little sick I couldn't witness Phish's three night reunion stand at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia. I will say that I went to my first Phish show in 1995 and that I have...complex feelings about the band. That isn't to say I wouldn't have traded a kidney for a ticket to these shows:

Chinese Hackers Crack iTunes Gift Card Algorithm: BONANZA!

Gizmodo is reporting that Chinese hackers have cracked the algorithm which generates the code for iTunes giftcards. I hate iTunes and am not a fan of Apple in general, so while I won't be baiting the FBI or identity thieves by purchasing codes from Chinese websites, I will admit that I am laughing diabolically on the inside. Looks like prices have increased a bit, but $40 for a $200 gift card is still a good deal...and pretty funny.
