152. Smell Faintly of Suntan Lotion

Posted in style on July 25, 2011 by Allen

If I walk past you and I catch a whiff of suntan lotion, I will automatically assume the following:

You had the day off.  You’ve spent most of it outside.  You were probably at the beach.  You were surrounded all day by beautiful people frolicking in their bathing suits while gazing out towards a picturesque ocean horizon.  At some point, a bikini model (or fireman, depending on your preference) probably came up to you and asked if you’d join their volleyball team for the tournament that afternoon, they needed a fifth.  Inspired by their new player, your volleyball team thundered all the way to the final against the evil Lifeguards.  Everyone at the beach came over to watch and cheer as you gloriously dug, set and spiked your way to victory!!!  Giddy on the high of triumph, the bikini model/fireman asked if “Maybe you want to hang out some time?”.  You calmly said, “I’ll see what I can do.”

Suntan lotion: It’s the scent that tells the story.

It’s Cool to Keep It Real

Made by Fog and Smog.  Shown to me by Seamus.  Everyone’s seen this already, but it doesn’t make it any less rad.

151. A Couch in the Back of your Pickup

Posted in stuff, sweet videos with tags , , on July 8, 2011 by Allen

There is no finer way to watch a drive-in movie than sitting on a plush chesterfield in the back of a pickup truck.  You want your rig to be the heart of the bush party?  Why not toss a sofa in your Sonoma.  At the pre-game tailgate, nothing says “opulence” quite like cooking bratwurst from the comfort of a loveseat.

Look, if you have a pickup, you’re already one step closer to being a redneck.  Time to embrace your true self and start moving your whole living room out there.

150. Bust a Lean

Whether it’s up against a graffitied wall, a lamp poll or a hitching post, nothing says “just hanging out” like a good lean.

A well executed lean is the coolster’s way of telling the world that, “Hey, I spend most of my day doing cool things with other cool people but, if it’s alright with everyone, I’m just going to take a break right now”.  The quintessential expression of standing casual.
