Sometime last week, someone stole Thom Yorke's minidisc archive from around the time of Radiohead's seminal OK Computer. Instead of paying up the $150,000 ransom to block its publication, the band decided to release the material instead. Given the obvious title of Minidiscs [Hacked], this 18-hour treasure trove includes snippets of ideas, early versions of songs that were reworked for the album, and generally provides a rare behind-the-scenes look at the creation of an all-time classic. All proceeds go to support Extinction Rebellion, which is an "international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimize the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse."

Made using organic amber maple syrup, this sweet concoction will take your breakfast to the next level. The syrup is aged in a craft distillery bourbon barrel for a minimum of six months for an added boost that's as welcome in a cocktail as it is covering a short stack. The syrup arrives packaged in a clear glass bottle with a heavy base and is capped with a synthetic cork with a wooden top.

Oris was founded in 1904 in the village of Hölstein which is surrounded by the Waldenburg Valley. The Calibre 115 draws inspiration from that location and continues the company's rich tradition of premium mechanical timepieces. The new timepiece features a fully skeletonized movement — including the barrel at 12 o'clock — so the watchmaker's talents are on full display. As you wind the crown, the mainspring coils until it's fully wound and ready to deliver ten days of uninterrupted power. It's housed within a 44mm brushed titanium case that employs a design passed down from a 1938 model and supplemented by a jet engine turbine blade motif introduced into the Big Crown ProPilot's bezel a few years ago. Additional details include Super-LumiNova filled hands and indices, double-sided anti-reflective domed sapphire glass, and a multi-piece titanium bracelet or a black leather strap.
