Swiss automatic watches are great, but perhaps you aren’t ready to drop a few grand on an accessory. (Or even a few hundred.) No problem – several excellent Japanese automatic watches are available in the $100 range, including the Seiko 5 Sports, my favorite watch and daily beater.
Still, even 100 bucks is still a lot for the budget-conscious layperson. The good news is you can spend even less and still get a decent, respectable watch. While it might not be automatic, the upside is it’ll have exclusive benefits you can only get with a battery.
For a nice, inexpensive daily beater, it’s hard to find a better value than the Timex Weekender Fairfield watch.

Those who have read my review of Jack Erwin’s Carter wingtip boot remember that I was pleased with the quality of their shoes and the positioning of their company as a disruptor to the overpriced, premium-shoe market.
But despite having a decent collection of oxfords, brogues, and loafers, Jack Erwin hasn’t hasn’t offered any boat shoes until now. I was able to acquire a brand new pair, so read my Jack Erwin Cooper boat shoe review below!
ALSO: Video review added – see below!

As I’ve stated many times here before, my favorite watch ever is a Seiko 5 Sports automatic. It looks cool, is extremely affordable, and has a beautiful automatic movement. For total value and bang for your buck, Seiko is always the first brand I recommend.
Seiko just came out with a cool new video, “Art of Time,” featuring a miniature Rube Goldberg machine made out of over 1,200 tiny individual watch parts.
Rube Goldberg is most well know for coming up with zany, endlessly complex machines that use a series of increasingly complicated chain reactions to accomplish relatively simple tasks. These days, Rub Goldberg machines are usually performed as large scale stunts, like in OK Go’s music video for “This Too Shall Pass.”
This time, Seiko has shrunk down the scale to be almost impossibly intricate and small, but no less impressive. If you are enjoy the art of watchmaking, you’ll be fascinated by Seiko’s production. Check it out!
I’ve been working on the relaunch of the official Terry Crews YouTube channel lately, and it’s finally here. Really proud of the work so far, and there will be a lot of exciting content to come – motivation, fitness, family, behind the scenes, and more!
In our first video, Terry talks about the paralyzing effects of discouragement and self-pity, and how to counter them with an attitude of gratefulness.
Terry Crews is known as a movie and television star, fitness guru, motivational speaker, outspoken family man… the list goes on.
Terry is awesome. You know you want more of this guy. Watch our first video embedded above, and check out the channel and subscribe at youtube.com/terrycrewsfans!
Caltech’s Institute for Quantum Information and Matter has released a new YouTube video, Anyone Can Quantum, a humorous short film about Ant-Man, time travel an ageless Keanu… well, just watch it.
The film stars Keanu Reeves, Paul Rudd, and the great Stephen Hawking. It’s directed by Alex Winter, aka Bill S. Preston, Esq. from the BILL & TED films, who was recently seen in the cool real-time thriller GRAND PIANO.
Check out the video on YouTube. What do you think?
There’s a hilarious new trailer for the new film by the Coen Brothers, HAIL, CAESAR!
It’s always great to see a new movie by Joel and Ethan Coen. FARGO, THE BIG LEBOWSKI, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, and TRUE GRIT are on regular replay at my house, and many of their other films are also personal favorites of mine.
See the new HAIL, CAESAR! trailer below:
HAIL, CAESAR! is directed by Joel and Ethan Coen, and will be released on February 5, 2016. The film stars Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum.
Disney (sigh) just released the new trailer for THE BFG, a film based on the popular children’s novel by Roald Dahl about a girl name Sophie and her adventures with a Big Friendly Giant.
The film has a powerhouse crew, with Steven Spielberg directing and bringing along his usual team of stone-cold pros: Janusz Kaminiski (cinematography), Michael Kahn (editing), and John Williams (original score). Weta Digital (THE LORD OF THE RINGS) is doing the visual effects. Additionally, the screenplay is written by Melissa Mathison (E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL), so we can’t help but expect great things from this movie.
Mark Rylance plays the BFG; we saw him recently in Spielberg’s BRIDGE OF SPIES and he gave a fantastic performance. We look forward to seeing him next year in the role of a giant!
See the trailer below:
THE BFG comes to theatres on July 1, 2016. It also stars Penelope Wilton, Bill Hader, Rebecca Hall, Jemaine Clement, and Ruby Barnhill.
Yep, the new trailer for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is out. This trailer gives us a closer look at the characters that will be featured in Episode VII, including Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). Still no sign of Luke though?
Action, explosions, drama, and Industrial Light & Magic kicking it into overdrive – looks like everything STAR WARS should be. Let’s hope it’s good!
Watch the trailer and unleash your inner geek! What is your reaction to the trailer? Let us know in the comments!
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is directed by J.J. Abrams (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III, STAR TREK) and will be released on December 18, 2015. The film stars also Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong’o, Domnhall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Max von Sydow.
