Ever gone somewhere needing to charge your phone only to realize you don’t have your cable with you? Who hasn’t!?!??! Check out these sleek portable cables by NOMAD. They first started on Kickstarter over a year ago and now offer a ChargeCard or ChargeKey for iPhones or Micro USB. What’s super cool is that they will even allow you to barter for one if you can come up with a good idea to help spread the word! But $25 to have charging capabilities with you at all times is something definitely worth paying for.
There have been a couple of blogs where I’ve seen this lamp show up, so I had to do a little more research to find out where it was coming from. This Book Rest Lamp is simple in design, yet adds some nice flare to your reading place.
The company that produces the lamp is called SUCK UK, based in East London. They have so many cool items, and do most of the designing in-house. But they also collab with people, and in the case of the BookRest Lamp, they teamed up with Lee Sang Gin.
The lamp is made with frosted glass, which provides ideal reading light, and when you’re done for the time being, you can place your book on top, creating a little house AND bookmark where you left off!

It’s been a long time coming, but after about a year of freelance work, NO THEFT has finally got his portfolio up!!! It’s still in it’s first phase, with more artwork on posters, shirts, albums, and logos on the way. He continually amazes me and ups his game each and every time. He work is so clean and esthetically sound and it’s been a real honor and pleasure to work with him. Please check out his site www.notheftdom.com and don’t hesitate to contact him if you need any work done!
Keep up the great work brother! Also, if you want to follow him on Twitter, he’s at www.twitter.com/NOTHEFT
Whenever I get back to Chicago I make it a point to stop in CB2 to see their latest. Just found about their him/hers throwback cycle set! Republic Frame / Shimano Shifters / Custom Yellow Kenda Tires just for starters. Just in time for the summer! I like the old cycle / cruiser feel, so clean, great usage of other respected cycle/parts manufacturing too. Bravo!
For all the wordsmiths and type heads, this is a dream coming true. YUM
Chris Burden created this structure that consists of 1,200 custom designed cars. The completed project will also include 13 trains and scenery built from Legos, tiles, and wood blocks.
We’re excited to have some new shirts coming out and here’s a peek before they go to print! We haven’t come up with names for them yet, and if you think you have a good one, please feel free to leave it in the comments and it could possibly be used! Enjoy!

Jeff Finley is in the band Parachute Journalists, a ‘indie/folk/pop punk band’ from Ohio. He has created several tasty covers for each song on their site that you can download for free! These are my favorite of them.
