Declaration 1776 sells Revolutionary t-shirts celebrating the origins of our nation. (*These are badass.) I used the free version for about a month and last night finally decided it was time to cough up the $3.00/mo for my Instapaper subscription. “What’s Instapaper, David?” It’s only one of the most brilliant apps EVAH!

The story of the creation of the “Wanted” posters for Jonah Hex is pretty fascinating. About five years ago, on September 1, 2005, I sat at a coffee shop across the street from the Leaning Tower of Pisa and could not believe just how much it leans. And that was five years after they fixed […]

“If a boot becomes the standard choice among war correspondents, I’m thinking it’s gotta be pretty damn good.” And now there is something else I want to buy.
