These skeletal saints have their own spooky story.
In the late 1500s, a series of tombs were discovered beneath the streets of Rome. Interred therein were the long-decayed skeletons of early Christian martyrs.
Exhumed, these skeletons were sent to churches throughout Europe where they were dressed with wigs, expensive cloth, crowns, and rare jewels. So-dressed, they were replacements for the holy relics lost to the Protestant Reformation.
Eye catching with a story to boot, these are costumes that would prompt a lot of conversation.
Michael Paul Smith brings us back in time with his model size community, Elgin Park.
Michael Paul Smith developed, what he calls, a “quirky hobby.” After having collected 300 diecast model cars (The Danbury Mint, The Frankin Mint, and West Coast Precision Diecasts), Michael sat back and realized that having these replicas sit on his shelves wasn’t enough.
He wanted to contextualize them. He built a 1/24th scale gas station. It wasn’t enough. Before long, he had built fifteen dioramas. All scale. All with a vigilant attention to detail. He began calling his fictional town Elgin Park.
Three fall cocktails to warm your belly, from our friends at Mason Shaker.

Meet Giethoorn, the Dutch town with no cars and even fewer worries.
U2's Bono once famously sang about a place where the streets have no name. Well, what about a place that has a name but no streets? Bono can't even fathom it.
Yet, can we fathom it, as Americans who cherish our automobiles? Can we imagine living in Giethoorn, a small town in north central Holland, where the land sits below sea level, the earth so soft and marshy that streets literally can't be constructed?

We sat down with a former Marine to talk training and brotherhood on the battlefield.
Think about it: you’re in the midst of pure chaos and every instinct in your body is saying run, flee, get the hell out of here. And yet, you do the opposite. You stand by the brothers around you and put yourself in harm's way to pull him out. What the hell is that about?
It’s the concept of “leave no person behind”—an ethos lying beneath the surface of every soldier’s wartime commitment. But, where’d something that goes against every natural flight instinct come from? I set out on a quest to find the roots.
