Amped about neon

I’ve contemplated getting some neon on more than a few occasions, but Amped & Co may seal the deal. They’ve got neon for walls or desks, plus letterboards so I can do my own version of Bob’s Burger of the Day. There are all the neon designs you’d expect like a cactus, pineapple, or the cringeworthy “lit”, but here’s one I haven’t seen along with a pretty cool 3D peace sign light. Let’s support these Canadians. They’re (probably) really nice people.

I haven’t had Trejo’s Tacos, but I want the merch

You may have heard about Danny Trejo playing the hero just as well as he plays the villain. Or his burgeoning taco empire, Trejo’s Tacos. But his merch store is also totally on point. Here are a few of my favorites, but who knows, maybe you want to go with the pop socket or baby bib. I’m not here to judge.

Positive change with your change

It’s been a while since we mentioned Good Fucking Design Advice, but I may need this handy Swear Jar to keep my potty mouth in check. I don’t actually frown upon a well-placed f-bomb, but it could be a fun way to save up some change and donate the proceeds to a good cause once it’s full. Resist the convenience of Coinstar people! That is, unless they start letting you donate to charity without fees.

Nothing new here

I’m hardly a sneakerhead, but I do appreciate the classics. These Adidas A.R. Trainers look so good, I give you full permission to ignore outdated fashion advice about wearing white after Labor Day.

9 doormats that will help you make new friends

When you move to a new home, you end up needing a few new things. One of them for me was a doormat. But I didn’t want to go with something boring from IKEA or something people think is clever but isn’t (e.g. You forgot the wine). My doormat needed to stand out and give a hint of my personality. A lot of what’s out there was pretty disappointing so I turned to the Holiday Matinee crew for suggestions. Should you be in the same predicament, here’s what we were able to find!
