Five sites to get you away from my blog.

uncrate : a great men’s gadget/gear/style blog.  They’re posts range from books to cars to houseware to awesome. Some of their more recent goodies are LEGO Minifigures and the new Audi R8 GT














trendir : a pretty good way to dream big.  This site pays homage to all the most unique and incredible house designs from around the world.

GizModo : Another great gadget site. Always good for the latest Apple drama, and news of every new gadget coming to the market.  Other notables from the same people are Jalopnik and Lifehacker

Mid-Century Modernist : A great source for all things modern, specifically mid century designs such as Eames Chairs and a LIFE Tribute to Steve McQueen, who was a super cool guy that just lived.

VW Vortex : I might as well plug the site I spend way too much time on.  This is a forum dedicated to all things Volkswagen, Audi, Lamborghini, etc.  They also have a plethora of community oriented forums.  Great if you need answers in a pinch.

Thats it for the list.  These are the sites I usually visit. I hope you all enjoy them, I know I do.
