Today is a good day, as Lil B and Chance The Rapper finally release the collaborative mixtape Chance has been hyping up the past couple weeks. Titled Free, the “Based Freestyles” mixtape features six tracks from the based-spun duo, some reaching almost 10-minutes in length. Now that’s a lotta chemical induced philosophizing! Peep Free below in its entirety, and look out for a rumored tour of the based-out Cali-meets-Chi-Town duo in the coming months…


DJ Shadow has released the debut singles from his first collaboration project since the 90’s work with UNKLE. Teaming up with Cali producer G Jones, Shadow’s latest project goes by the moniker Nite School Klik, and they specialize in all things superbass. Think purgatory deep dubstep beats, with ample measures of rap, juke and trap thrown in, sprinkled with the occasional D&B breaks… all slowed down to a sweet molasses goodness. They’ve dropped a couple tracks already, but to really get their sound out NSK have assembled this 45-minute “Guest Mix” for the crew over at Nest HQ — which happens to be the first mixtape heard from DJ Shadow in years. In addition to the mixtape we have the first 2 NSK singles to stream below, “Posse” and “Nice Nightmares”, presently out on Shadow’s own Liquid Amber label. Enjoy!

One of the Madman’s Very Unofficial Top Ten Films Of All Time, without a doubt, is Fight Club. Based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk and brilliantly manifested for the screen by David Fincher, Fight Club was the type of film that defied categorization, somehow addressing and articulating the inexplicable, inchoate anxiety and bullshit and disenchantment of the Modern American Life. It was fucking genius. Now, nearly two decades after the book and 16 years after the film, Palahniuk resurrects The Narrator, now known as Sebastian, and his sidekick Tyler Durden for a 10-comic miniseries illustrated by Cameron Stewart. Playboy was kind enough to preview the first 6 pages (and cover, above), and we’re stoked to share it with you. This could definitely pave the road to a Fight Club film sequel, although who knows how good/awful/disappointing/amazing it would be. For now, enjoy Fight Club 2, the comic, below…

Whether you’re a practical packer on the go, or the total lush in a hurry, it’s time to wrap your drink holders around god’s gift to winos — the Oak Bottle. If you have gotten to the point where insta-aging your booze with a stick should require even less effort than waving a magical cocktail wand around, you’re in luck. Because why age in an oak barrel when you can do it in an oak bottle? Now you’ll never have to depend on the wonderful wizening accents of time alone to do all the dirty work on your whisky.

While there is a full line up of Oak Bottle products, one master infuser will run you $80 and comes with bottle, cork and two ounces of barrel wax. Other options include the mini oak, or a variety of flavor notes that range from cherry to coffee to smoky to vanilla and more. Try it on either wine or whisky. Here’s to a bit of genie-wishing in the bottle for everyone.

Flashlight, GPS, walkie talkie, Bluetooth & USB all-in-one tool


On your next action/adventure foray into the jungles of Guatemala, forget bringing a flashlight, GPS and walkie talkie. Just bring a FOGO. This proposed all-in-one adventure gadget also comes Bluetooth ready, houses a USB backup battery, and — for those of you ready to rough it like the rabid survivalists that you really are — the FOGO can also send texts and host a bunch of apps on its OS system. Now that’s wild. Ready to get really rugged? Show some love on their Kickstarter — or at least watch the video target-marketed at cubicle workers who grow out their man burns and buy expensive travel gadgets in preparation for a weekend hike. Too bad it doesn’t also come with a lounge chair and beer koozie.

Watch the FOGO’s Kickstarter video below, and donate to the cause if you think it’s worthy…

Aside from the flowery aesthetics, other boasting points of the shoe include no-tie lacing system, 3D Ultralite midsole and socklining typical of the Furylite style.
