…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Hennessey Venom GT?

Hennessey Venom GT

Hennessey is a well-known tuner of all things domestic, but recently he set his sights on a supercar of his own, and created what just might be the new high-water mark in hypercar performance.

Hennessey Venom GT Engine

Called the Venom GT, it’s loosely based on a Lotus Elise, though with a tweaked and twin-turbo’ed Corvette ZR1 engine behind the driver making 1,200hp and propelling a 2,548-pound, carbon fiber body, it’s probably closer to a UFO in the book of automotive taxonomy than any four-wheeled vehicle.

Add it all up, and you’ve got a $1million Bugatti Veyron beater that will go to 62mph in 2.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 260mph.

Put me down for two.

…It’s Movie Monday: AT-AT Day Afternoon?

Patrick Boivin must be a wizard, because his short, called AT-AT Day Afternoon, is just plain magical.

Makes you want one, doesn’t it?

…You need a Lumberjack Hat?

Lumberjack Hat

Etsy user taraduff makes a “Lumberjack Hat” that doesn’t just make you feel like a lumberjack, it also makes you look like one too.

That’s because the knitted stocking cap includes a shaggy knitted beard and mustache that are stored within, and can be pulled over your face if the weather gets cold, or if you just want to look like you know your way around an axe.

Each hat is knitted by hand on a round loom, and the beard/mustache combos are all hand crocheted, so no two are the same. Plus, since each is unique, you can find a color combo that fits your personal style, or order a custom combo if you’ve got something specific in mind.

…Fingerstaches give your face some style?


You don’t want to let your MacBook have all the moustache fun now, do you?

Gama-Go’s Fingerstache temporary tattoos give you the ability to apply a moustache to your face with the flick of a finger, but the freedom to take the thing off at the end of the day as well so that you’re not stuck with hipster branding for the rest of your life.

At just $5 for a pack of 19 Fingerstaches, it’s a can’t miss deal on a pretty sweet style.
