It looks like Daniel Craig will play James Bond one last time as he gets ready to be 007 once again for a film that will be released in November 2019. Many Bond fans were happy to see Craig take up the role of 007, but it looks like this one will be has last one. Craig didn’t feel like he needed to play as Bond in another film, but from the sound of it he is back at it again.

In celebration of the new, recently announced 007 film and in honor of Mr. Craig’s last go around portraying the debonair spy, Belvedere Vodka encourages you to raise a Belvedere Classic Martini, and toast Mr. Bond.

Belvedere Classic Martini

Machine Gun Kelly Goes All 90s With Reebok

What do you get when you combine some cool looking kicks with one of today’s top musicians? You get a great crossover. Staring straight into the lens with a sly smile, rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly knows how to work a camera. In an abandoned warehouse he expertly poses while wearing Reebok’s Club C Overbranded silhouette, a shoe that among many things, includes a 90’s vintage logo as a nod to the era.

He’s confident yet playful, feeling the vibe and holding court at the abandoned warehouse of the Reebok set. The ’90s were a time of confidence, bold colors and fashion risks. Known for his unique fashion sense and edgier punk style, MGK steps away from the camera to tell us why he believes fashion is a way of self-expression.

“You can match your emotions with your clothing and say what you want without having to physically speak,” he says.

“When you’re an expressive person you don’t always want to just have to say how you feel or how you feel about yourself, so you can wear it instead.”

MGK is constantly picking outfits that speak to him, and if they don’t come with a little edge then what’s the point?

“If you don’t feel it, it won’t work,” he says. “It’s important to take fashion risks because if we didn’t there would be no evolution, things would never change.”

The Club C Overbranded pack will be available August 2nd on Reebok.com and select retailers around the world. The five solid footwear colors will retail for $84.99 with the all-over white print retailing for $89.99. The cap is priced at $65 and the hoody is priced at $28.

This Capsule Is Geeking Out Big Time

I just got the second ThinkGeek Capsule and it is loaded with a bunch of goodness from Star Trek, Marvel and Game of Thrones. There were even boxes inside the first box that contained even more awesomeness.

For all you Trekkies wanting to know what live was like on the planet Vulcan you are in luck. There is the Vulcan Travel Guide which is a book highlighting the different places you can visit on Vulcan. For all of you who love tabletop games you love the fact that there is a Dungeons & Dragons t-shirt and patch set. The t-shirt shows a D20 in front of fantasy gear and the patch is a red D20. The patch is adhesive, not an iron-on.

Game of Thrones is not only back on HBO, but you can find some GoT treasures in this capsule. Inside was a piece of canvas art of one of four sigils from the show. I got House Targaryen. This will go great in my office. Love the artwork and colors in this one.  There is also a Pinz collectible pin with the theme of outer space. I got the moon pin, which is pretty slick as you can see from the pictures.

The bonus item in this ThinkGeek Capsule is a Doctor Who Funko Pop keychain. I got the Twelfth Doctor, but the Fourth Doctor us also up for grabs too.  Speaking of bonuses just lie the first capsule this one contained a gift card. They can range in value from $5 to $100. Love the fact ThinkGeek is doing that.

As you can see there was a ton of awesome swag in this one. So if all of this awesomeness is something you wanted delivered to your home go to thinkgeekcapsule.com to subscribe to the monthly capsule program. You wont be disappointed. Next month’s capsule will showcase items from DC Comic’s Justice League.

Be A Good Neighbor Silence Your Sports Car

No matter where you live you are bound to have awesome neighbors and other ones you wish would move away. Have you ever had one call the cops on you because of your car’s noise? Someone called the cops on Steve von Foerster. The former head of vehicle engineering for Ford Motor Company wasn’t thrilled, but he understood why.

On an otherwise peaceful morning in his suburban Detroit neighborhood, von Foerster had just backed a Shelby GT350 Mustang out of his driveway. As the car’s V8 engine thundered, an annoyed neighbor set aside their coffee cup and dialed 911.

Von Foerster had left before the officers arrived, and he didn’t end up with a ticket. Nor did he get angry. What he got was an idea for the new Mustang.

“I love the sound of the V8, but it can be loud, and you can’t annoy people like that in your neighborhood,” said von Foerster, who now leads Ford’s user experience team in product development. “It sounds so cool, but I thought, ‘There has to be a way to give people more control over the engine’s sound.’”

The experience fueled a discussion between von Foerster and fellow Mustang program team members that led to development of Quiet Exhaust mode and industry-first Quiet Start, known as “Good Neighbor Mode” among Mustang engineers. The new features on properly equipped 2018 Mustang GT vehicles allow drivers to keep engine sound at a minimum if they wish and to program quiet start-up times in advance.

While some sports cars offer active exhaust systems with on/off functionality, Mustang’s Quiet Start is the first to allow scheduling of times. Using steering wheel-mounted thumb controls, drivers toggle through a menu in the instrument cluster to select when they want to fire up their Mustang GT without sharing the event with neighbors. For example, between 8 p.m. and 7 a.m., drivers can keep the peace by scheduling their car to start, minus the roar.

Both new Quiet Exhaust mode and Quiet Start features will be part of the available active valve performance exhaust system on the new Mustang GT, along with different exhaust volumes for Normal, Sport and Track modes, giving customers more choice than ever before.

“Active valve performance exhaust gives Mustang owners the best of both worlds – that classic Mustang sound, and the ability to not wake up your neighbors when you leave the house early in the morning or arrive home late at night,” said Matt Flis, Ford exhaust development engineer.

Neighborhoods across the country should be thrilled. According to a recent poll by Ranker.com, loud engine revving ranks among the most annoying noises neighbors make, alongside other common nuisances including power tools, barking dogs and band practice. Only early-morning lawn mowing is more robustly despised. With new Quiet Exhaust mode and Quiet Start, Ford is doing its part to keep the peace.
