Another great season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
will be available on September 13th. The whole gang is back Mac, Dennis, Charlie, Dee, and the one and only Frank.
This season looks into gay marriage, fights the class war, enjoys the high life on the high seas when they buy a boat, and does whatever it takes to figure out who got Dee pregnant. Sunny fans will love Season 6 and the box set features deleted scenes -- including the unaired, extended cut of "Lethal Weapon 5." Comedy gold.
My personal favorite two episodes are The Gang Buys a Boat and Who Got Dee Pregnant? Make sure you pick up Season 6 and make sure you check out FX on September 15th when Season 7 starts up.
If you feel like getting your Season 6 box set in true IASIP style -- the easy way, without earning it -- you can win yourself a copy. All you need to do is tweet this: "Hey @thebachelorguy
, I got Dee Dee pregnant, so give me the #AlwaysSunny DVDs" and on Wed Sept 14th, I'll pick one of you to take home the set. And pay Dee Dee child support.

Sometimes you just need to get away. Even if it's only for a day. Because the thought of one more report, one more "urgent brainstorming" meeting with the boss, one more phone call from an irate client, and you're thinking thoughts that could get you 10 to 20. Time to call in for a mental health day.
That's why SOYJOY came up with their Daycation challenge
, to get guys everywhere to take a short break from the madness and recharge. And they invited me to step away from my keyboard, turnoff my cell phone and get away for a day. So they sent me a Daycation pack that had all the gear for getting away, including: a digital camera, some sunblock (which I wouldn't need... you'll hear about that in a minute), a great cooler bag that chills in the freezer so there's no need for ice (that will get its share of work for years to come), a SOYJOY water bottle, towels, tshirts and a whole bunch of SOYJOY nutrition bars.
Why take SOYYJOY bars on a day trip? Couple of reasons: they are baked and have real fruit and whole soybeans for on-the-go nutrition, and most importantly, they won't melt in your pack on your way to the beach, trail, or for a day on the water... which is what I chose to do for my getaway. Only I chose to do it during hurricane season, in South Florida, as the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee were hitting...
Here's what happened: I mentioned to my buddy I was going to take my girl for a day of kayaking down the Intracoastal through Fort Lauderdale. Maybe stop on one of the many islands, have some lunch, a few drinks, a SOYJOY bar or two, then paddle back. Leave civilization behind. He's got a better idea: He has a "buggy boat" and we can take it to the Deerfield Island Park. It's only accessible by boat, really secluded, there's nature trails, a place to have our lunch... and with his boat, my girl won't need to paddle. Perfect. Except the only day we can organize it, we are having the typical Florida on-and-off thunderstorms.
If you've ever wondered how Vinny gets his eyebrows looking so damn perfect on "Jersey Shore," no matter how crazy Snookie gets him, you can ask him yourself.

With hackers, data pirates, and nasty bits of malware drinking all of our respective milkshakes, ones computer privacy is becoming a top priority, which is where the SplashID Key Safe
Cleverly styled as a key to fit right on your keychain without screaming "Geek!", the Key Safe is an encrypted 2GB flash drive that allows you to store all your account numbers, passwords, and miscellaneous important info in one convienent and portable place.
Upon being placed in a USB drive, the Key Safe runs its preinstalled database software that keeps track of, and allows you to edit, any information or add/delete any files (like those bachelor party photos of you with that stripper with an Adam's apple), without leaving a trace on the computer you're working on. A password prompt (which can't be circumvented or changed), at start-up, insures that if your Key Safe is lost or stolen it won't compromise your personal data.
So do yourself a big favor and ditch that Post-It note attached to your monitor, and make the thieves work for it a little.
Imagine youíre at a buddy's summer BBQ hanging out with a cold one poolside, as your skin bakes to the same color as the succulent meat on your plate. You and your friends have managed to create a near perfect oasis of good times until your buddyís three-disc Spice Girls "unplugged" retrospective hits his wireless speakers, and everyone starts heading for the nearest escape route.
Donít sweat. You can save the party. Pull out your music-loaded smartphone, commandeer their speakers with some simple drag and drop using the Twonky
app, and get that party back on track. Boom. Easy.

I can remember rocking my white K-Swiss shoes back in the day along with my Members Only jacket, pegged jeans and Swatch watch - make that two swatch watches. I was way too cool for my junior high class. So when I heard that K-Swiss was launching a line of classic kicks this summer I just had to share.
Ready in plenty of time for the summer, the Vintage CA line by K-Swiss has a trio of looks all inspired by the original K-Swiss Classic but updated to mesh with today's fashion. First in line is the Vintage CA II, a modern take on the original in worn leather. Next up is the Vintage CA Limited, a high-top all-gray version of the CA II in all leather. The Vintage CA collection is rounded out by the Vintage CA T, the canvas edition of the Vintage CA, perfect for lounging or hitting the streets.
The K-Swiss Vintage CA II ($70) and Vantage CA Limited ($75) shoes are available at K-Swiss online
and the canvas Vantage CA T's ($50) can be found at Urban Outfitters
It's no secret I've been a fan of Burn Notice
since Michael Weston first woke up in that Miami hotel room, dazed, burned and confused. And not just because it takes place in my backyard, or because they manage to have Gabrielle Anwar in a clingy sundress or tank top every episode, or even because I keep getting told I look like a younger Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell). I dig the show because of the MacGyver-for-intelligent-people way Weston gets his ass out of trouble. (I even take notes. Might come in handy one day...)
This past Thursday the gang of "hired help" was back for the premiere of their new season. And as long as Fiona is blowing stuff up, I'm in.
I'm also giving away a Burn Notice Fan Pack
to one of you, courtesy of USA Network. Inside the branded nylon bag you'll find:
- The complete Season 4 DVD set
- A copy of the Burn Notice Book: The Bad Beat
- Kiehlís Suncreen Lotion (or equivalent)
- A USA Summer T-Shirt
- The USA 10-City Summer Guide
- And, my favorite, the highly coveted Sam Axe "Chuck Finley" t-shirt
Sorry, no case of Michael's favorite yogurt...

If you've been around the world of spirits (and by "spirits" I mean liquor, not ghosts), you've heard the term "Angel's Share."
When distillers put their precious liquid in barrels for aging, a certain amount gets evaporated or soaked into the wood. Leaving less coming out of the barrel than what went in. This is what distillers call the Angel's Share. The payment made to the heavens for allowing them to make such incredible spirits.
And while no one can capture the liquid that has evaporated into the air, Jim Beam has finally figured out a way to extract the juice that had been forever trapped in the barrel's wood. They've taken back that share from the angels, and dubbed it the Devil's Cut
Using their proprietary process, the mad geniuses at Beam have taken this recaptured bourbon and added it back into an extra-aged, six-year premium bourbon creating the finely balanced 90 proof Devil's Cut with deep notes of vanilla and, of course, rich wood and oak. It has an intense, yet smooth, flavor that is like no other bourbon you've tasted.
And while I usually post recipes for any new liquors I talk about for you to mix up, this time I am refusing. Flat out. If ever there was a bourbon to be enjoyed neat or on the rocks, this would be it. If you're insistent, you can add a little cola. The Devil gets his cut either way.

Iím not a huge fan of wine, and I canít profess to know that much about it. For me wine is a bit like golf. I just donít get it. Besides, my beer-drinking schedule leaves very little room for deviation. What I can
appreciate, however, is a good story and Alex Elman Wines
has just that.
If this were just another wine importer/private labeler story Iíd have lost interest already, but the story of Alex Elman Wines is definitely more than that. When Alexandra Elman was 27, diabetes took her sight. What the disease failed to take from her was her sense of purpose and the passion for what she loves.
Having spent nearly her entire life surrounded by and involved with the world of wine, Alexís determination and desire to share her love of fine wines with the world lead her to found Alex Elman Wines.
And donít even think sheís out for the sympathy vote. Rather than let her disability stand in her way, sheís found a rather cunning way of leveraging it. Címon, she calls herself "The Blind Wine Chick." Now thatís giving fate the middle finger. So with the help of her big-headed yellow dog Hanley (her words, not mine), Alex
