…It’s TGI Friday: Little Wheel?

Little Wheel

Little Wheel is an incredibly imaginative and beautiful game from OneClickDog.

You can play through the whole thing using just mouse clicks in about 10 minutes, so I don’t want to give away any of the story and ruin it for you, but make sure you don’t miss this one!

…It’s Things Thursday: Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea?

Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea

Charles and Erik started the Andrews & Dunham Damn Fine Tea company because they were obsessed with tea.

Andrews & Dunham knows that nothing beats a perfect cup of tea, and a great tea needs no explanation. It tastes great, it makes you feel good, it’s good for you. It’s even legal.

Damn Fine Tea isn’t just ordinary tea with a fancy name however. No. Each limited edition tea is prepared using orthodox methods (picked and processed the traditional way) and packaged in tins that are covered in unique, hand-printed labels from Aesthetic Apparatus.

In addition, each tea is part of a themed series, and they only sell one series at a time. (So far in quantities of 400.) Once that series sells out, they move on to the next tea and the previous tea will never be sold again. (Probably.)

The first series included a Ceylon, a Chinese green tea called Dragonwell, and a black tea from Nepal, while the second series includes two black teas themed after boxers named Jackee Muntz and Thomas Sampson who are pitted against each other in a contest of strength and stamina.

Ringside seats to this epic battle between men and teas are selling fast though, so you better hurry!

…It’s Website Wednesday: Bill Posters Project?

Bill Posters Prosecuted

Posting bills doesn’t usually add to a city’s visual appeal, but the signs that building owners put up to prevent these postings are often as ugly as the thing they’re trying to stop, which is why one group of graffiti artists have created original works of art to let people know that bill posters will be prosecuted, and have sprayed them in popular locations around various cities.

These counter-counter-culture works of art are then documented and posted onto the Bill Posters Project website for the world to see, since presumably, they’re just as likely to get painted over as the bills are.

What a mad, mad world we live in…

…Nic Case’s car is fast?

World's Fastest Remote Controlled Car

Nic Case’s world record setting car cost him $4,000, has all-wheel-drive, has no brakes, makes 11-horsepower, and features a carbon fiber chassis.

Oh, and it’s controlled by a remote, and sits just a few inches off the ground.

Recently, the custom creation was clocked at 161mph on the track, though Nic’s confident that with a few tweaks, he can easily break the 200mph barrier.

Just don’t expect to buy one of these at your local Radio Shack!

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mansory Chopster?

Mansory Chopster

The Mansory Chopster is what happens when Mansory gets their hands on a Porsche Cayenne, and the carbon fiber factory has a sale.

Mansory Chopster Detail

Both the exterior and the interior have been thoroughly reworked to include carbon fiber on almost every surface, with the exterior getting a widebody kit and a roof chop in the process.

The engine also got reworked, and now has 710 hp and 900 Nm of torque thanks to a new engine management system, bigger turbos and reworked air intakes.

The Chopster is definitely not a car that will appeal to everybody, but if you want to stand out from the crowd, then this is definitely one way to do it.
