…Trunk Club is your personal fashion assistant?

 Trunk Club

Trunk Club wants to revolutionize the way that men shop for clothes by becoming the Netflix/Zappos of clothing.

The main benefit of Trunk Club is a personal clothing expert that you can meet with via webcam who will evaluate your style and recommend, find and deliver clothing and accessories that match.

Trunk Club Process

Then, once the clothes arrive, you can try them on and let your personal clothing expert evaluate the fit and style before allowing you to select what you want and ship the rest back for free.

Surprisingly, there are no membership fees or consultation costs, and you just pay the normal retail price for all pieces that you decide to keep. There’s no shipping, no obligation, and no need to ever wade through the mall again.

Still skeptical? Gear Patrol recently gave the service a trial run, and was impressed with the ease of use and the range of choices that were presented. You can read the full review here.

…Perkin’s 14 is crowdsourced horror?

Perkin's 14

Perkin’s 14 is the first ever feature film from Massify, a film production company that uses crowdsourcing to connect filmmakers, actors, critics and the community and help them collaborate to get films made.

The film is set to debut during January’s Horrorfest III, but if you’d like to sneak a peak into what Perkin’s 14 is all about, just visit the Massify site and check out some of the behind-the-scenes footage and other goodies that are sure to peak your interest.

…Iron Man was awesome?

Iron Man


Ok, so maybe not, but after watching Iron Man, you’ll want to run down the street yelling that too.

Thanks to TechCrunch’s invitation, I was able to get a sneak peak at Iron Man Wednesday, and I can whole heartedly agree with the 96% that this film is currently rocking on Rotten Tomatoes.

Rotten Tomatoes Iron Man

It’s the summer blockbuster that you’ve been waiting for, and probably beyond what you’re expecting from it.

Sure, it’s got a great theme song, and the commercials look great, but that’s just the Hollywood Hype Machine running on overdrive, right?


Iron Man is a solid film with a plausible (futuristic) story line, fantastic acting, and top notch tech ogling.

First: Robert Downey Jr. is a bad ass. His role as a billionaire weapons manufacturer that likes fast talk, hard liquor, expensive women and cheap thrills is perfect, and he says each line with a bravado that will surely be emulated by everyone for the next few weeks.

Second: The action doesn’t stop. Sure, it’s a CGI film with plenty of additional special effects; but keep in mind, this is a comic book based movie after all. As is expected with a summer blockbuster, the explosions are over the top, the battles drag out, and the eye candy is ever present, but it’s always done in a way that lends itself to the story line, and never seems out of place.

Third: This is a tech head’s dream flick. From 3D holographic displays and futuristic UI to a sassy computer and robotic assistants, it’s a look into the future at what everyone hopes the world will become.

If you have a chance, then go see this movie, because you won’t be disappointed.

Grade: A
Theater Worthy: Yes

…It’s Music Monday: South By Southwest?

South By Southwest

South by Southwest (AKA SXSW) is an interactive, film, and music festival that takes place every year in Austin, Texas.

Because many of the bands that perform there each year are trying to make it big and break into the scene, they release an official torrent with most of the music from the festival for you to download and enjoy.

This years torrent contained 763 tracks, and played end to end, would be nearly 48 hours of continuous music.

If that sounds like a lot to go through to find what you like, that’s because it is, so Paul Ford decided to listen to them all and give you a kind of cheat sheet for finding the music that you like.

His chart ranks each of the songs on a one to five scale, and gives each a six-word review, making it easy to find the good stuff.

If you’re looking to be on the cutting edge of the music scene, then head on over to the download link and fire up your favorite torrent downloader, because it doesn’t get much rawer than this.
