…It’s Things Thursday: Field Notes?

Filed Notes Subscription

Field Notes are “honest memo books, worth fillin’ up with good information”.

They were inspired by

the vanishing subgenre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list.

Though normally available with a brown cover, Field Notes offers a ‘Colors’ subscription service for those that want to add some variety, and want to make sure they always have a fresh Fields Notes book on hand.

The subscription service includes 24 very-limited-edition memo books (only 100 subscriptions are available) spread out over the year in four different colors/styles. For summer, the color is “Grass Stain Green”, while Fall, Winter and Spring of 2009 still remain gigantically top secret.

If you’re the type of person that likes to write everything down, but you like to do it with style, sophistication and exclusivity, then check out Field Notes and pick up a subscription.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Top Secret Supra?

Top Secret Supra

The Top Secret Supra is ridiculously, stupidly, blazingly fast. With an estimated 1,000 horsepower coming from the twin turbo V12, “Smoky” (the owner) hopes to top it out at 248 mph later this year. (Apparently 200 mph flew by without any problems, so another 48 doesn’t seem that far off, does it?)

Power was sourced from a V12 that was pulled out of a Toyota Centry, which, at 276 horsepower, isn’t exactly a powerhouse out of the box, so they’ll be plenty of custom work to get things running right. A six-speed shifts gears, an LSD puts the power to the road, and a custom body kit keeps everything down at speed.

Oh, and the price?

A mere $500,000.

No wonder it’s painted gold!

…Taryn Simon gets good access?

Taryn Simon

Though it took over four years, Taryn Simon managed to gain access into some of America’s mot top-secret, highly restricted areas for her latest book, called An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar.

Topics include decomposing bodies, radioactive waste, deadly viruses and death-row recreation, so you know the results are going to be good.

Check out Wired’s article for a preview, and prepare to get behind closed doors into areas that you were never meant to see.
