10 Radically Experimental Cabins, Cocoons, And Shacks

When New Order’s Barney Sumner sang “When I hear a baby cry/When I see an old man die/Rock the shack, rock the shack,” I’m pretty sure he wasn’t talking about a cozy tree house in the Swedish woods. But that hasn’t stopped the editors over at Gestalten from putting Barney’s cryptic lyrics to good use as the title of a new book on retreat architecture. Rock the Shack: The Architecture of Cabins, Cocoons and Hide-Outs, which came out last month in Europe and this month in America, is an unpretentious look at compelling design in places only Thoreau could love.

The 30 Most Anticipated Movies of 2010

With the debates still raging on about the quality of last year’s films, I’d like to take a look ahead to the future. In fact, considering the year we just had, I’ve been looking ahead to 2010 ever since January of 2009. Don’t get me wrong. The movies were great, but it was really tough for me to keep up with movie news while I was out panhandling on I-35. Not to mention dangerous. Hopefully our country’s fair citizens will have to panhandle no more forever, but instead of rambling off into tangents about the state of our economy, let’s escape a little bit into the future. A peaceful place where everyone gets a puppy, a flying car, and these movies...

Top 6 Underground Search Engines You Never Knew About

I love Google, Bing and Yahoo just as much as the next Internet user, but sometimes you really want to dig down into a particular subject. In order to do that, you really need access to those underground search engines that may not be quite as well known, but they dig much more deeply into specialized areas of the Internet than the general search engines are capable of. These search engines are tapped into what is currently termed the “invisible web,” which is the information available on the Internet that standard search engines don’t have access to. The following 6 underground search engines that I chose are not porn sites, illegal piracy sites or anything else that could get you in trouble with the law, or with your significant other.

10 Fascinating Facts About Costco

Do you love Costco? I love Costco ... maybe a little too much. I've been a member of Costco since the Price Club days (Costco merged with Price Club in 1993 and became PriceCostco. In 1997, the company changed its name to the Costco Wholesale you know and love - more on that below). Back in those days, Price Club didn't use barcodes - instead, the checkout process consisted of an unloader and a cashier. The unloader took your items out of your shopping cart and yelled out the item numbers to the cashier. The cashier typed in the item numbers one by one into the cash register. Oh, and back then, it was still possible to get parking on a Saturday morning.

16 Badass Movie Soldiers

It’s hard not to like a good war movie. Action, intrigue, high body counts, lots of gunplay, a moral of some sort. They got it all. One of the most vital ingredients to making successful combat cinema is reserving at least one character to be a soldier that crushes. The guy who displays little to no fear, is mean as a snake and single-handedly wipes out a significant number of the enemy. These military mavens can take a beating and just as easily dish one out. Using the year 1979 as a starting point, here are sixteen badass movie soldiers from the last thirty years.
