While no one could in good conscience call you a “gamer” (your revolving door of Sports Illustrated swimsuit models would definitely not support that), who doesn’t have a soft spot for Mario and Luigi? No need to purchase a console though, when the boys are available via Supaboy. ($68) This handheld, portable video game system looks like a SNES controller with a slot for the game and a screen embedded directly on it. However, it can connect to the TV and additional controls in the event that Izabel and Genevieve want to play too.
A Sound Investment.
Before you invite the gang over to screen your latest movie, beef up your living room entertainment system with the Versus Forte Tower HD System ($2,500) from Aperion. Much like you, the five piece audio system delivers an Oscar worthy performance. With pure acoustics and rich vocals, your friends will get to feel like they’re part of the action. While everyone can’t be a star in real life, at least they can get star quality audio.
It’s not a beer. It’s not a wine cooler (thank God–now maybe those two old men will finally shut their traps). It looks like Crystal Pepsi. But it’ll get you nice an tipsy. What is it? It’s Zima, and it’s invading an ice bucket near you. This lemon-lime drink is called a Clearmalt, and it’s marketed as “Zomething Different.” While it’s not the beverage you’d want your father to catch you drinking (you might as well strap on a pair of roller blades), it’s definitely some nectar the females in your life might enjoy. And we like to keep our ladies happy, don’t we gentlemen?
Need for Speed.
Even though you declined the offer to drive in Formula 1 (AGAIN), it doesn’t mean you can’t still race in your leisure time. But if you don’t have the 2012 Ariel Atom 500 V8 ($250,000) in your garage, don’t even bother. As the name states, this racecar has a 500 horsepower V8, but what it doesn’t tell you is the 900bhp per ton horsepower-to-weight ratio translates to instant peel-the-skin-off-your-face speed. With performance like that you don’t need to bother with things like a roof, doors, or a windshield. Rest easy that it does come with a fire extinguisher though. Production is limited to only 25 units, but we’re sure you’ll have one in your possession by the time this is published.
As a renaissance man yourself you can relate to the writer, actor, and director Sylvester Stallone, if not the underdog he played in all six Rocky movies. Now you can own Rocky: The Undisputed Collection ($36.00) on Blu-Ray or DVD. Watching the Italian Stallion go from chump to champ and back again will definitely fill your 80’s quota for the week. If Mr. T’s appearance in Rocky III creates an itch for more, scratch it with The A-Team: The Complete Series now available on DVD as well. We pity the fool who can pass that up.
