Can we make this international already?

I know it’s not an international holiday, but dammit if it shouldn’t be. Instead of spreading “democracy” and “freedom”, I think America should concentrate on spreading “Thanksgiving” — easily the best American invention. What’s there not to like? You sit around all day, watch football, eat till you slip into a tryptophanic coma, and drink […]

Because your feet deserve to feel patriotic, too

The Terminator High is a classic Nike silhouette, so it’s appropriate that there be continued reinventions. This time around Nike offers the “America” version, which plays the patriot by applying the U.S.A-flag styling to the upper.

This country may be young in terms of its years of history as a “New World”, but that doesn’t speak any less of its capacity for volumes of photographic documentation.

(On […]


After Harley-Davidson bought his Buell brand and then dissolved it, many wondered what American motorcycle icon and engineer Erik Buell would do. Well, as any great visionary would do, Buell hunkered back into his Wisconsin lab to do what he does best: design world class two-wheelers. The result? Erik Buell Racing‘s EBR 1190RX, a more […]


Looks like the summer of 2014 — much like every summer in the 21st century — is going to belong to Marvel. The first Avenger, Captain America, gets a new trailer this weekend for his sophomore film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. We were positively surprised at how good the first movie was, so suffice to […]


It’s like a stepping into a time machine. Marty McFly skipping through the decades, the vehicle of choice not a DeLorean DMC-12 but rather a Corvette — one gleaming white specimen morphing from generation to generation. The concept is genius, and frankly astounding that no other automaker has offered it before: the opportunity to test […]
