I think I’ve managed to lose an entire package of guitar picks in one afternoon. I play in every room of the house and I manage to put the pick in the most random spots imaginable. Fish tank? Laundry basket? Fridge? They are like black holes for guitar picks. In some weird form of divine intervention, I was given the opportunity to review Wrist Picks. A Wrist Pick is a guitar pick that is attached to a strap with a clasp; you put the strap around your wrist like a bracelet so you don’t fling your pick across the room while you are wailing on your axe or stick it in your sock drawer when you have to pee. Wrist Picks come in an impressive selection of clasps, straps and picks. The straps are durable and if you make sure to wear the right size, they don’t get in the way of your playing. The clasps come in different designs and they are all great for holding your pick, but a couple of styles are a little tricky to replace the pick on. The picks are available in all sizes and thicknesses. Stainless steel picks are also available and can be engraved or custom designed as a necklace or a set of earrings for your number one groupie. When the only pick you can find is either strapped around the neck of your guitar or attached to your wrist, you don’t really need to play with any others. –Ben Trentelman
Sugar Steak is the eye poppinist joint on the block this fall. These tees are quality, fishscale-type raw. They’re American made and printed on sustainable American Apparel Tees. You’re welcome. I would recommend the Ass-Backwards Tee as a good starting point—all the hunnies will want to blow your bubble. Then jump into the food-design-joint tees and make all the loser stoners jealous with your dripping foodie style. You can stay looking extra crispy with some limited edition tees and stickers, and with the fly-ass iPhone 4 sticker, you’re on point. People love the limited stuff—it’s the new black. If you hit up their website and use the promo code “SLUG,” they’ll hook it up and get ya 15-percent off. Go out there and get fly. –Jemie Sprankle.
