"F. Scott Fitzgerald: Winter Dreams" from the PBS American Masters Series

Below is a noteworthy documentary about F. Scott Fitzgerald, part of the "American Masters" series on PBS. The film was written, directed, and produced by DeWitt Sage, and it won a Peabody Award in 2002 "for chronicling the life of Fitzgerald, one of America's great novelists, in images and ideas as lyrical and inventive as his prose." You'll also appreciate the great style going on in some of the photographs.

The 3Doodler pen heats plastic which is then released in a thin strand and cooled, making it possible to draw in space. It could be the next big thing. The kids are into it.

Tellason Sale at Huckberry

In case you need another reason to head over to Huckberry, they're selling Tellason jeans, which are designed and built in San Francisco, a city with a rich denim heritage. Established in 2008, each pair is made from raw Cone Mills White Oak (NC) selvedge denim because of the consistency with regard to finish and shrinkage. Once you get into a pair of Tellason, the time invested in breaking them in will be well worth it; you’ll end up with patterns of wear that are uniquely your own (see the last picture). 

Bodyboarding Skeleton Bay with Ewan Donnachie

Extremely remote location in Namibia. As in, requires a Defender. You will probably not get to surf this place, so you're thankful Ewan brought his GoPro.
