After a month of worrying about conflict in the Middle East and new world leaders, it's time to get serious. So study up on the best of what you missed from the Thrillist network:
Emailed to Miami: Last Night's Party This NYC party photo blog's recently focused its scarily revealing lens on Miami's clubs, capturing so many "hot messes" (see "Transition Team" and "Transition Team II") that you're guaranteed to eventually say, "I bought that girl 50 drinks and I'm still hoping for midriff". Prove that Cobrasnake's got them beat here
Emailed to Nation: Bluetooth Tape Adapter This unassuming cassette tape's actually a Bluetooth receiver that'll play your phone's music, and also has a built-in mic, letting you big-pimp no-hands calls over your decrepit whip's stereo system, but leaving your collection of bootlegged Winger concert tapes "Headed For A Heartbreak". Pimp your tape deck here
Emailed to San Francisco: Joker Ski Mask Menace the slopes with this beanie/ski mask: between the sickly green hair, pale wrinkled brow, and gash of yellow teeth, everyone will recognize you immediately, as a snowboarder. There's no way you're not getting the Oscar here
Emailed to Chicago: Fluidscapes Started by two 'Cago engineers, these oversized Lava lamp-esque installations come in three wall-mountable or freestanding styles (26" and 48" flatscreen jobs and a 6.5-ft-tall vertical fish-tank), in six blob-tastic bouncing colorways. They'll also do custom jobs, like a 10-ft-tall number in whatever color you desire, though if you've just fathered the leader of the rebellion against the machines, silver's gonna bug you out. Whoa. Dude. Here.
Emailed to Vegas: Frankie's Tiki Mugs Designed by "the world's top lowbrow artists", Frankie's eight ceramic mugs represent all aspects of the faux-Polynesian lifestyle, from wanton use of slot machines ("The Tiki Bandit") to wanton volcano explosions ("The Bombora Blast") to wanton names for Tiki mugs ("The Bearded Clam").
