We like to think of Maximo's iM-490 iMetal Stereo Earphones as "ear
buds" in the sense of being good pals with your ears. Good buds. Like
And we imagine you'll have
your iM-490s stuffed in your ears sometime, and whatever you're
listening to will end, but you won't take them out right away because
you're preoccupied with something you're reading and you've kind of
forgotten they're in there because their aluminum alloy body is so
And your ears will go: "Hey, iM-490s, I'm
glad we have the kind of friendship where we can just hang out together
and we don't even have to have music or talking or anything; we can
just chill and it's not weird."
And the iM-490s will go: "Yeah, me too."
your ears will go: "It just feels comfortable, you know? Like, some
earphones, if there's no music on, I feel uncomfortable with them.
Like, OK, why are you still here? You know? But it's not like that with
And the iM-490s will go: "I'm glad."
your ears will go: "You know--this is dumb, but you know I didn't even
really have any white friends before we started hanging out?"
And the iM-490s will go: "Hunh."
And your ears will go: "I'm sorry, that was stupid. That was a stupid thing to say. I'm sorry."
the iM-490s will go: "It's cool, don't worry about it." And then, after
a quiet moment: "You want to hear some Guns 'N' Roses?"
And your ears will go: "Do I!? You bet!"
the iM-490s will pump the clear, powerful sound for which they're
known, That's what we're talking about. They'll be your ears' best buds.

Oooh. How clever. We're all so impressed. If you wear this shirt out to the clubs, the girls (or boys or whatever) just won't be able to keep their hands off of you. But then, nobody can resist a Shirt.Woot design, because we sell such fantastic, fashion-forward apparel. We also love the fact that this shirt adds one more definition of "irony" to the pile. You know, because everybody seems to have such a firm grasp of what "irony" means. Confusing the issue even more, yeah, that's really helpful.
This shirt was designed by: snakeweber. And if you've ever had your snake webbed, you know just how painful that can be.
Wear this shirt: with your trucker hat, mustache, parachute pants, and big puffy hi-tops with the laces undone.
Don't wear this shirt: if you actually like it because it's good. Sincere expression of one's tastes is so pre-MTV.
This shirt tells the world: "I'm the kind of person who invents my own adjectives by adding a Y to the end of any noun."
We call this color: So Bad, It's Grass.

Here's that second Ty Caton deal we promised this week.
come to our attention that there remain a few holdouts among the
faithful, a few die-hards resisting the Ty Caton magic. Perhaps they're
just being contrarian. Perhaps they're simply the type to reflexively
revolt against the conventional wisdom, to turn up their stubborn noses
at all the critics, prize juries, and fellow wooters praising the Caton
name. Oh, well - if they want to deprive themselves, there's not much
we can do. We can lead a wooter to Ty Caton, but we can't make him or
Or maybe it's all about money. To paraphrase fugitive bon vivant Gale Snoats, we wouldn't be surprised if the source of their sales resistance weren't financial.
we get it. Even the fantastic Ty Caton bargain we offered earlier this
week presents a significant fiduciary hurdle for the Ty-curious. So we
invite the meek to bolt on the training wheels, strap on the training
bra, and take a tentative step into the Catonsphere with this Ty Caton
2005 Field Blend three-pack.
Field Blend is sorta like
TyTanium's little brother, so we're not surprised to see it tagging
along onto Wine.Woot. Springing from the same vineyard and bearing a
similar blend as the renowned TyTanium, the Field Blend packs a TyTanic
punch at a TyghTwad price. Like America, it draws strength from its
melting-pot composition. Deep, rich color...a warm, oaky nose...flavors of
black currant, blackberry, and plum...and a soft, extended finish with a
hint of chocolate. Take away any one ingredient - the Cabernet
Sauvignon, the Syrah, the Petite Sirah, the Merlot, even the tiny
splash of Malbec - it just wouldn't be the same.
But at this
price, you don't have to take our word for it. There's room for you in
Ty Caton's world, too. All you need is an open mind, a curious palate,
a little room in your wine rack, and forty bucks plus shipping.
Ty Caton 2005 Field Blend:
Varietal: 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Syrah, 15% Petite Sirah, 8% Merlot, 1% Malbec Appellations: Sonoma Valley - Caton Vineyard Oak: 12 months French oak, mixed new & used barrels Alcohol: 15.2% Released: July 2007
