Each bears a number to signify its rarity and comes in a customizable Goyard trunk (packaging alone worth the price.)Maison E.

Yesterday a power outage in Virginia temporarily disabled Amazon’s “Elastic Compute Cloud,” leaving the entire planet without popular networking sites Instagram and Pinterest. Severe weather, along with high-speed winds were to blame and result in millions still without power.Instagram was dead and still is, with many photo-sharing fans franticly trying to upload images unsuccessfully while being left with the question, “WTF!?”Pinterest posted this statement, “we’re upgrading our servers for the next 15 minutes,” probably not to panic the pin-hungry addicts. We noticed the “SPAM Message” as a result, which left us scratching our beards. To those on the east coast of the U.S. still suffering from the power outage, we hope electricity is restored so you can get connected once again. 
In the meantime, here’s to an evening of candlelight, a bottle of fine Bordeaux and your favorite book.

Sometimes bar stories are meant to be forgotten, while some books are not made for everyone. How to Piss in Public by Gavin McInnes is one of those books. It is a memoir of sorts and insanely hilarious, (in a straight-jacket sorta way). From Teenage Rebellion to the Hangover of Adulthood, this book proves that some people just don’t give a sh*t.
