Okay, a few quick things I wanted to make you aware of so you could get going on them if you choose to.
Apparently, The Criterion Collection is losing the license to a crapload of titles. They’re putting them on sale, $5 off each one. Below the jump, at the very end of this post, I’ll give you a full list with links to the Criterion Collection’s store. Snag them while you can. Please note: these aren’t Amazon links, as Criterion is currently giving you the better deal, and I’d rather you got the better deal than me get the kickbacks. However, Amazon has a tendency to beat online sales when they become aware of them, so you might comparison shop before you pull the trigger. Last Criterion sale if Criterion had something on sale for, say 20%, Amazon would go 21%. So just FYI.
And lastly, because it just showed up in my inbox and it amused me. Bryan Batt of Mad Men has joined forces with Playboy to create a limited edition loveseat in honor of the 50th anniversary of Playboy Clubs. It’s called “The Hef.” It’s also signed by The Actual Hef. You can click that pic to embiggen. I didn’t realize Batt was a designer, but here’s what he has to say for himself: “The inspiration for this piece came from a 1960s photograph from the original Playboy mansion in Chicago. The design of the loveseat speaks to the sensibility of a time when suits and sexy were au courant.” There’s only fifty of them and for the low, low price of $15K. You can find a pic of the thing without Batt and bunnies here.
