Keyboard Shortcut Skins

Holy hot shit! I just stumbled upon this sexy AND functional little product from Photojojo. These awesome keyboard skins will teach you key command short cuts for Photoshop faster than you can say key command short cuts. They come in all sizes from wireless Mac keyboard to Macbook pro. I’ll take one for both my wireless and my beastly fast Macbook Pro.

Bin Bin Paper Basket

I am adding the Bin Bin Paper Basket to my Home Studio wishlist. I stumbled upon it at Nova 68, a cool boutique that specializes in super expensive modern stuff. Luckily this waste basket is only a cool $55. The basket obviously is riffing on crumbled up balls of paper. Literal is the new black apparently. I think it’s a great alternative to the standard office wastebasket. It comes in white or black. While we are on the topic of my Home Studio revamp, I did in fact purchase the Specktone iPod player and am disappointed in it’s performance. That is probably why they no longer make it. I am now on the hunt for a replacement. It looks way better than it sounds. In the meantime I think I’ll try selling it on ebay.

We don’t really practice crating Max & Molly. They sleep in the bed with us and that is fine with us. But if you are going to crate your best pal might as well do it in style. The eiCrate at Go Pet Design sells for around $320 (or $11K if you decide to go all out and get the gilded 24k gold version) and is probably the coolest looking crate I have seen. Who knows, maybe we’ll get one for Max to keep him at bay during the day when we are at work. I am sure if he saw how cool it was he’d dig it.

iPhone Custom

Why wait for the next generation of iPhones to get all black sickness. Knight Creations can upgrade your iPhone or supe up a new one for you at a somewhat decent price of $300 smackers. Couple this with a custom engraving and you can have one of the most original iPhones out there. You can opt for gold too but I think it could come off just a bit tacky.

Notebook Portable Grill

Just a reminder, I am from Texas, and the second biggest thing in Texas food after smoking your meat is grilling it. And while I am not totally into charcoal grills, the Notebook Portable Grill could be a handy little thing to take down to the beach. It’s totally compact and has a decent sized cooking surface perfect for burgers or dogs. Besides that, it looks pretty dope. If anyone has it let me know how you like it because I am thinking about buying it but would love to see how it performs. Thanks for the tip David. Check A+R’s store for other cool stuff too, it’s a pretty fun little boutique.

My Little Underground | Command Posters

I am loving these simple and witty posters by My Little Underground. At $12 for the set of 3 5x7 prints it’s a pretty good deal to get framed and hang on that small piece of wall real estate or to include in artwork wall collage that seems to be all the rage these days. Either way, check them out.

World Pinhole Camera Day

So apparently it’s World Pinhole Camera Day and to celebrate Corbis put up some pretty sweet camera templates to print out and build. Not only do they look sweet, they actually work and they’re free to boot.

Texas BBQ in a Bottle

I am not sure if Meat Water is for real or if people are actually drinking/buying these. I am definitely curious to see what Texas BBQ in a bottle tastes like. They have other flavors such as Dirty Hot Dog, Pizza Prosciutto, and Fish N Chips. Reminds me of when I bought Jones Cola’s Thanksgiving soda set and actually tried drinking them. I nearly chucked. I dare someone to buy one these and try it.

Kaiju Studios | i/o Desk Organizer

I have been looking for cool stuff to adorn my new desk (er. the one I plan to buy in the near future once I can actually decide which desk I want). This i/o Desk Organizer from Kaiju Studios is pretty sweet. I love the mixture of felt and wood. It’s nice and modular too so you can rearrange it according to your mood that day. I think it’d go great with the Uten.Silo on the wall to store most of the stuff and then having this on the desktop for things you need more in immediate reach. Let’s just hope they find a manufacturer to partner with soon so we can buy it. Crossing fingers now.

Refinding Wallets, Bags, & Accessories

I am all for recycling materials to make new things. I really like what Refinding is doing with their line of products. They mix industrial textures and retro pop culture ephemera to create items like bags, wallets, watches, belts, and jewelry. I personally like the Tire Bag, the Tennis Ball Wallet, and even the Garbage Pail Kids Wallet (I was HUGE into GPK as a kid, and still am actually). They are all priced pretty reasonably too. Go cop some quick.
