It’s prom season, and while you may be well out of high school by now, that’s no reason not to keep a tuxedo handy for those engagements demanding a more formal ensemble, or if you just want to look fancier than usual for a change. And hey, if you’ve yet to invest in one, there’s no better time than now: this magnificent imported wool tux from Rag & Bone can be had for cheap for a limited time. Nothing like indulging yourself on Hump Day in to jumpstart your anticipation for the upcoming weekend.

With its slim cut and straightforward one-button design, it’s a versatile piece that’ll look good weather you’re at a wedding, dinner date, or just a casual party. sweet! let me in! →
I don’t think it’s hyperbole when I say that this has to be one of the most hilarious products of all time. Remember those RC helicopters you flew as a kid? They’re still making ‘em, and this one takes the cake as far as offensiveness goes. You probably won’t be able to glide this thing all that precisely through your living room or office, but it’s a surefire way to express your indifference in the crudest way possible. Send one in the direction of that one co-worker who won’t shut up about his daughter’s school achievements, or the roommate who’s constantly blathering on about his favorite anime shows. Also makes for the perfect Mother’s Day gift… if your mom is laid back enough to enjoy a profanity-laced joke gift, anyway. All we can really think about is how high the inventor of this thing must’ve been when the idea for it popped into his head. Available now in any style you want, as long as it’s f*ck, via Amazon.
Boards come in all shapes and sizes, build and materials, but New York-based Natures Shapes take it one step further by creating custom shaped boards designed to fit personal needs and style. With their specialized EPS Proxy construction, and unique designs, these boards are a distinctive, higher end alternative to your average board. Natures Shapes boards like this 10′ Custom Epoxy are stronger and lighter than traditional polyurethane or polyester construction, making these custom boards much less likely of taking in water. This particular model features a center fin plus two futures side bites, while its recycle EPS foam and Epoxy resin minimizes vapor, and can be cleaned with regular soap and water instead of acetone. These engineering considerations contains flex; most Natures Shapes riders report a lively springy feel that trumps any polyurethane board. So if you’re tired of that old, stiff molded board you’ve been riding, be sure to check out the board from East Coast Surf, and the entire Natures Shapes catalog as well.
Thank MOSH It’s Friday is an ongoing series of posts highlighting cool stuff that’ll help jumpstart your weekend. Given our hedonistic approach, however, things might get a little not work safe from time to time, so keep your alt-tab trigger finger primed for pulling if your boss is on the prowl. That being said, let the good times roll!
After a long winter, a new baseball season is finally upon us, and you know what that means: a renewing of bitter fan rivalries! Last season, New Era celebrated the tradition of diehard team rivalries with an ad campaign starring 30 Rock‘s Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski, who you may know from a little show called The Office. Those two were knee-deep in the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry, but this time around, New Era has switched its focus to Chicago’s White Sox-Cubs fan friction. Craig Robinson, also of Office fame, will be repping the Windy City’s White Sox, while Parks and Recreation‘s Nick Offerman will don his worn Cubs cap and fling some pointed disses at crosstown White Sox fans at large. It’s far too early to know which of these two teams will be in the running for the pennant come August, but stick two pro comedians in a bar with some beer and peanuts with the game on, and everybody wins. Catch the video after the jump and be sure to leave a comment if you’ve got any fond baseball rivalry memories, or if you just want to vent about how crappy your team’s starting rotation is this year. sweet! let me in! →
Unless you were one of the big jackpot winners in last week’s record-breaking Mega Millions lottery, buying a $1,300 lamp probably isn’t the most pragmatic personal expense. Still, when it’s a lamp as uniquely engineered and downright magical as this one, it’s hard to deny the temptation. Designed by Angela Jansen, the Crealev Floating Lamp draws inspiration from traditional lamp designs, while giving it a radical, futuristic spin: it floats. Standing upon a handcrafted wooden base with a high glossy finish, the lamp uses electromagnetic components to levitate the top half of the lampshade, while light flows through a mirror covering the lower half. It also employs cutting edge LED tech for minimal power consumption, and touch controls for easy intensity adjustment. Truly, it’s the lamp of the future, or at least a surefire conversation starter at parties. Available now in your choice of Silhouette and Eclipse designs at the Crealev Goodsie storefront.
Over the Hump is an ongoing series of weekly posts intended to get you past your mid-week Hump Day every Wednesday. We promise to keep things mostly work safe, though it’s still probably best to make sure your boss isn’t looking over your shoulder while you’re reading.
Last year, when comedian Louis CK topped profits of $1 million dollars with his online, direct-to-the-fans distribution model for his Beacon Theater standup special, we knew it wouldn’t be long until other comics took a page out of Louie’s book. Sure enough, Aziz Ansari, he of Parks and Recreation and Human Giant fame, is releasing his new standup special on his website for just a fiver. Entitled Dangerously Delicious, the one-hour special is an uncensored, uncut, ad-free foray into Mr. Ansari’s fiendishly twisted mind onstage. For $5, you might as well buy a few extra copies to gift to your comedy-loving friends and family. Check out a (NSFW) 3 minute preview after the jump. sweet! let me in! →

Anyone who’s farsighted knows how tricky it can be to read small print, especially data on, say, a cycling computer, GPS, or smartphone screen. And when you’re outdoors, it’s all the more important you can easily read the text on your screens – all your squinting could very well cause you to miss that tree in your bike path or that grizzly bear approaching from the periphery. But with Dual Eyewear’s SL2 Sunglasses, small print reading is a problem no more; with their built-in magnification zones, these suped-up shades sharpen your smartphone screen in style. sweet! let me in! →
