Every film is loaded with dialogue. Although, as a whole, it does better than most mediums at capturing realistic conversations, some filmmakers do a better job at capturing it than others. Noah Baumbach is one of them. Using the director's latest film The Meyerowitz Stories — following a dysfunctional New York family — Nerdwriter examines how Baumbach has mastered recreating how families actually talk.
You can't go wrong with a steak sandwich, especially if it's constructed by Matty Matheson. The foul-mouthed chef piles grilled skirt steak on a toasted hoagie. To appeal to the health-conscience, he tops it with kale chimichurri and serves it with a seasonal tomato salad.
Searching for barware that's as interesting as today's modern cocktails, we partnered with North Drinkware on a collection of smoked glass mountain range tumblers. Made in Portland, each set contains two hand-blown, 8 oz. cocktail glasses in a custom smoked translucent black. Using data from the United States Geological Survey, a two-day, fifteen-step process forms the molds of Mt. Hood (Oregon), Mt. Rainier (Washington), or the dual peaks of The Maroon Bells (Colorado) inside the bottom of each tumbler, ensuring the natural topography of each is perfectly represented. The limited edition sets also include leather and felt coasters produced by the artisans at Spooltown in Portland, and arrive in a handmade wooden stash box. Limited to 50 sets per mold, our collaboration with North is a commitment to the original makers of these patented, American-made designs.
A good pillow can be the difference between a night of restful sleep and a literal pain in the neck. The team at Casper knows this and designed a pillow that provides comfort and support regardless of your sleeping position. They've invented a unique pillow-in-pillow with a firm inner core and a soft outer shell. Thanks to the even fill distribution of silky fibers, the pillow won't lose its shape. It's also finished with breathable percale cotton to keep airflow moving and your pillow cool. It's even machine washable. Take advantage of the 100-night trial, and if you don't love it, Casper will give you a free refund.
