Cool Stuff of the Week: Lamborghini Huracan LP 610, Adidas Powerlift 2.0 Shoe, Bond on Set, and more…

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m kind of a sucker for cool stuff. I like nifty gadgets, quirky decoration pieces, nice clothes (and shoes!), good books, and fun games.

In this series of weekly posts, I share whatever currently has my fancy. Maybe some of it will catch yours as well!



LOL these types of videos remind me of all the ridiculous stuff we would never get to witness if it weren’t for the Internet…



I’m not a huge car guy, but damn Lamborghinis are just sexy.

The Huracan LP 610-4 is the successor to the now-retired Gallardo, and is everything you’d expect: the sexy lines of the characteristic wedge shape, 610 horsepower, 413 pound-feet of torque, all-wheel drive, and a fully loaded interior.

Maybe one day… (Hey we can dream, right?)




I’m pretty into shoes, and this naturally extends to weightlifting. Thus, I’ve tried a lot of options, and my favorites have been the INOV-8 Bare-XF 210 and New Balance MX20 Minimus. Well, I’m adding the Adidas Powerlift 2.0 to that list.

These shoes are just awesome for lifting. They’re comfortable, light, and really stable thanks to the wide base, contoured insole, rigid plastic weight distribution plate, and high-density midsole. They also just look cool. 🙂




Although I didn’t particularly like the last couple Bond films, I”m a fan of the series, and thought this book series was pretty cool.

There are four books in the series–one for Skyfall, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Die Another Day–and they contain all kinds of behind-the-scenes photography with explanatory captions, and excerpts from the screenplays. If you like to see how movies are made, and you like Bond, you’ll like these books.




I’m kind of a nerd at heart so I had to include this.

Hood, sash, wide sleeves, embroidered Jedi logo on the front, and 100% cotton velour (comfortable!)… It’s the perfect replacement to your current scruffy bath robe you bought a long time ago, and in a galaxy far, far away…





If you’re serious about rising to the top of any field or endeavor, then you want to read Mastery.

Through extensive research and selection, Greene has compiled a compelling collection of biographies, quotes, and lessons that all offer timeless insights on how to find your “life’s task” (as he puts it) and systematically go about mastering it.

The biographies are outstanding, the writing is elegant, and the teachings are ageless–this book would have helped people centuries ago, and will continue to help people centuries from now.

    My girlfriend bought me the addidas powerlift 2 for Christmas. After getting over some of the lads at the gym jesting asking whether I was going bowling with my new shoes on (haha), these shoes make getting super deep in squats much easier. Definitely recommend.

      Nice! Haha yeah they look like clodhoppers but they’re awesome for lifting.

    Ordered the Powerlift based on your recommendation and they are perfect! Much easier to get deep into a squat without losing my balance. Keep up the product recommendations. It really helps rookies like me.
