Jim Morrison’s grave in paris.
Of course, when it comes to recommendations on daily necessities, such as fashion and fragrances or gadgets and accessories, Wingman has you covered. However, you can also rely on us to appeal to the part of you that just never wants to grow up; providing you with the latest news on every must-have toy. Over the past year we have loved being able to bring you giant guns that fire giant rubber bands, luxury foosball tables, and we’ve even (kind of) set a precedent for recommending killer LEGO sets, in the form of Citizen Brick’s incredible Breaking Bad meth lab set. Now, we’re back again, with the ridiculously cool, and super realistic, LEGO Batman Tumbler Set.
Primed and raring to go for a September release, this mammoth construction set is a totally different beast compared to the tiny 30-piece figures we made as children. Measured at 15 x 9 inches upon completion, this set comes direct from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight series, utilising all of its 1,869 pieces to mimic the original Tumbler exactly, accessible cockpit and all.
With an initial release price of $199 we’d be tempted to build this stunning creation just to then simply admire it from a distance, on a nice wide shelf, perhaps. But, if you want to get your money’s worth – with every set coming equipped with LEGO versions of both the Dark Knight and Heath Ledger’s Joker, as standard - you could always build yourself a mini-Gotham City and spend your nights fighting tiny villains. We won’t tell if you don’t.
Will Letter for Lunch
We came across this cool and clever idea for snatching a tasty plate of food and trying out different restaurants along the way. Graphic designer Lauren Hom hand-writes menus on blackboards in beautiful typography in exchange for a free meal at each location. She later posts her work and meal on the aptly named Will Letter for Lunch.
Lauren got the idea after noticing that most eateries overlooked the importance of the chalkboard and the fact that typefaces make everything more appealing. Service for nourishment done the old-fashioned way.
Look at what she writes and eats on her blog.
Extra photos from the soon-to-be McCartney family’s trip to Portugal.
I’d like to mention that it was on this out-of-the-blue trip that Paul would propose to Linda, who was at the time 1-month pregnant with the couples first child who would be named after McCartney’s late mother, Mary.
