Well I should probably get some meat added to this here site, and I’m going to start by listing FIVE things that I think are cool and worthy of inclusion on the site.
It’s mostly things I’ve just stumbled upon (not via stumbleupon.com though) in my daily life, and things that I’d like to remember in a year’s time or something when I look back to see what my first post was about. Scary though.
Anyway, Christmas is coming and there are a whole bunch of list-type posts littering the web, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet, and maybe or maybe not Christmassy, you decide on that one!
1.) Hobby Drones
These things are pretty cool right? I know there are all sorts of issues that are going to come of them in the future, but people are doing some really interesting things with them. Amateur photography is never going to be the same again.
Yeah so some people are going to use them to spy on their neighbours, but at least the technology has a use other than killing people.
They’re not too expensive either, so maybe they WOULD make a good gift. Hmm..should I?
2.) Straight Razors
So I was reading this post on shaving tips for men recently. You’d think it would be nothing special, but it actually blew my mind. There were so many useful tips in there and I found out I’d been approaching shaving in totally the wrong way. Really surprised me.
Anyway, one thing I learned was that straight razors are really fantastic, and the mroe research I do, the mroe I realize they’re becoming more popular again. I think you can get some on Amazon, but there are probably some cool vintage ones near your area too.
Dom Wells from http://luxuryshaves.com has put together a pretty cool site actually, so if you want to get in touch with your inner man, go check it out.
3.) Ugly Christmas Suits
Fine, I admit it, this is going to be a Christmas list. I planned it all along.
Seriously though, have you seen these things?

They’re so ugly that they’re cool. Kind of like Bulldogs.
4.) Cool Breakfasts
Yep, not a particular “item” as such, but still something very cool. Check out this post to see what I mean.
As the article says, it’s amazing how much imagination we lack when it comes to the “most important meal of the day”, so I think we should really start rectifying that.
This morning I had a shake though, so not exactly awe-inspiring.
I can’t remember where I first saw it, I just think it’s a really cool concept, and for people with a small apartment, lack of balcony, or whatever, I actually think it’s just a pretty cool idea.
Well that’s my list! What do you think? I know that it is totally random, but that is in keeping with the theme of the site and where I’d like to take it.
I’m sure that a few months from now I will have a more “niche” direction, but for now I’m just going to throw stuff around. Not literally, that would be dangerous.
