An awesome time capsule of what life was like on the Internet more than 20 years ago, just as it was starting to take off. If you remember Netscape, dial-up modems, or Excite!, you’ll get a kick out of this old VHS tape. We like he calls URLs “YEEERLS.”
Fans of Studio Ghibli will want to add this one to their Amazon Prime watch list now. The 26-episode animated series about the adventures of a thief’s daughter premiered in Japan in 2014, but is getting its US translated debut on 1/27/17, narrated by Gillian Anderson.
While there are lots of surround sound systems that claim to be “wireless,” all of the ones we’re aware of still require the speakers be plugged into power. ONEaudio’s system uses DECT tech and 2″ rechargeable soundpods to eliminate all wires. Available in 2.1, 5.0 and 5.1 configs.

One of the things we miss from sports cars are pop-up headlights. Rockstar Rides also has a place in his heart for these neat sources of light and style, and set out to find as many of these cars as he could. The result is a wonderful montage of rides with serious personality.
The new MINI John Cooper Works Countryman gets a zesty new engine with 228hp and 258 lb-ft. of torque, as well as standard AWD, sport suspension, Brembo brakes, and 18″ alloy rims. Inside there’s more space than ever, with seating for five, and sweet JCW sport seats.
For many of us, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is the only context we have for its characters. But if you look back at the comics, it turns out that Peter Quill isn’t always the goofball scoundrel we saw on the big screen, and is actually a bit of a dick.
A delightfully smooth, light, and slightly sweet blend of bourbon, Tennessee whiskey, and rye from the past three decades. It’s honey forward, with grassy undertones, and a bit of apple and spice on the finish. Sips easy on its own, and perfect for old fashioneds.
Awesome Stuff from Technabob, MightyMega and 95Octane
