When you’re young, you want a great timepiece. But what you don’t realize is that in having a great watch, you also have to invest time maintaining it. Though they are never referenced in rap videos or on red carpets, a quality watch winder is key to extending the life of your watch and ensuring optimum performance.
Adult sensibilities aren’t sexy, but damn it, they win out if you’re doing it right. Once you drop some coin on a watch, keeping it wound is essential. A watch winder is used to keep automatic or self-winding watches running when not worn.
So, how does a watch winder from Barrington work?
Automatic watches operate by winding themselves using a moving weight inside the watch. The weight moves around while the watch is worn and turns the winding mechanism inside the watch.
The winder from Barrington operates on a basis of gentle rotation to wind watches.
Inadvertently, the above shirtless NASCAR fan, with a canister of what we can safely assume is “Purple Drank,” a southern beverage of choice, dangling from his loins, summed up the entire three-day NET10 Wireless NASCAR event.
NET10 — with no contracts, plans starting at $40 a month for unlimited service, and over 100,000 locations — doesn’t care about your past relationships with previous cell phone service carriers. All NET10 cares about is you and your freedom.
As America’s largest no-contract cell phone provider, they are all about keeping you #FreedForSpeed to enjoy the most sexually progressive cell phone relationship you’ve ever had in your life. #NSA.
Bullz-Eye spent three days in Charlotte, North Carolina and immersed our senses in the intricacies of both NASCAR and the #FreedForSpeed lifestyle of NET10 Wireless. It was the fastest three days we’ve ever experienced.
After three days of drinking Bud Light exclusively at Whatever, USA, I needed to re-calibrate.
What did I reach for in an attempt to regain homeostasis, aka the stability of the human body’s internal environment in response to changes in external conditions? A tall, silver, frosty can of Sapporo, the #1 Asian beer in the U.S. Think of it as the Yao Ming of beers.
Did I say Asian? I meant “awesome,” as in open up and say ahh-some. Because if you’re like me, the term “Asian beer” made me think back to gross nights consuming my weight in sake. Is there even any beer in Asia? There sure is.
Though it is technically an Asian beer, it was actually brewed by a German-trained brewer and founded in Sapporo, Japan in 1876. It made its first appearance in America in 1964, and Sapporo USA, Inc. was founded in 1984.
But who cares about the history? All you want to know is what it tastes like.
There are three kinds; Sapporo Premium, Sapporo Reserve and Sapporo Premium Light. I engorged my senses in the Premium.
Though Sapporo is technically a lager, it tastes more stout than that – at first. But what’s weird/cool/amazing, is that the aftertaste is somehow light and smooth.
The word “crisp” definitely rolled through my mind as I enjoyed my Sapporo out of its iconic silver can. There is also a hint of citrus, which may explain the bright and clear yellow color. A mix of bitterness, but with a slight sweetness is what I experienced in each mouthful.
The silver can, combined with the shape, is awesome and makes you want to drink it. Here’s the can in action:
Step away from the domestics and treat yourself to a Sapporo on game day – the NFL, the NBA or the most demanding game of all, the game of life.

A new survey from yourtango.com has found that many people aren’t as good at kissing as they think.
The survey, led by YourTango, the #1 media company dedicated to love and relationships, found that the majority of people reportedly think they are pros at puckering up—however, only 53% of people believe that their partners are good kissers.
Andrea Miller, relationship expert and CEO of YourTango, says, “Our survey found that 51 percent of people say that kissing is crucial in a relationship. However, as the results show, many survey respondents think their partner could use a little work.”
The survey found that bad breath, too much pressure, and sloppiness all factored into a bad kiss.
Miller continues, “If you want to improve kissing in your relationship, my advice is to tune into the types of kisses your partner desires. We all like to be kissed differently, so find out how your partner prefers to be kissed, whether it’s soft and slow, deep and passionate, fast and fierce, etc. And, make sure that your kisses don’t fall by the wayside in your long-term relationship! Kiss your partner everyday, even if you have to make a reminder to do so in your smartphone.”
What I didn’t realize while it was happening in the 1980s and 90s, and even up until this year, was how successfully Public Enemy branded themselves in an era when “branding” wasn’t a buzzword or something that everyone was trying to build, bereft of skill as they may be.
Even today, if you blast Public Enemy in your office at what is considered more than a reasonable volume, it will likely be received as a “statement” of some kind, just like when you hear a commercial for the latest U2 album and know there must be a new Apple product out.
Iconic still today, sunglass company Arnette Eyewear launched a limited edition Public Enemy Collection as a part of both its “Uncommon Projects” initiative and the 25th Anniversary of the song, “Fight the Power.”
Built on the classic look of Arnette’s Witch Doctor frame, the glasses come with interchangeable black and white arms that feature the logo on one side and the classic “Public Enemy” name on the other.
The interchangeable arms and their coolness cannot be understated. When I was feeling a little lower key, yet still crisp, smooth and badass, I rocked the black arms. But when I felt vibrant, outgoing and flashy, the white arms absolutely killed it.
From the minute I pulled the shades out of the box, the quality was apparent. Sturdy and perfectly weighted, even though the arms are removable, you are not sacrificing quality for vanity or flexibility. The arms are solid and there is a special key you have to use to take them off.
But how do these glasses function “in the field?” I needed a suitable testing environment to really gauge the impact of these glasses. So, I took them with me on my trip to the town that Bud Light built, “Whatever, USA” and wore them for the entire weekend.
