Ken Block Gymkhana 7 Wild In The Streets Of  Los Angeles - Someone Gave Ken Block a 845HP Mustang And This Is What Happened
Here’s the short story: Ken Block + 845HP 1967 Ford Mustang called Hoonicorn + a ton of insanity + tire smoke + director Ben Conrad (the guy behind the past three Gymkhana videos) + another ton of insanity + more tire smoke = Gymkhana 7

And here goes the long story – after three successful Gymkhanas, Ken Bock (the owner of DC Shoes and Hoonigan) partnered again with director Ben Conrad (also directed Recoil 2 and was the creative lead for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Avengers and Iron Man 3) for for the seventh title of the Gymkhana series: Wild In The Streets Of Los Angeles. The clip shows Ken Block unleashed, driving a 845 horse power, 6.7-liter V8 supercharged 1967 Ford Mustang and drifting on the streets of LA. A crazy amount of insanity, a lot of driving skill, some cool panoramas of the empty streets of LA, a couple of Police cars involved in the Gymkhana and a lot of tire smoke make this clip the coolest one of the series. Check it our and let me know in the comments bellow.

I also embedded bellow Ken Block‘s first 6 Gymkhanas in case you missed them!

BioLite Wood Burning Campstove With USB Charger
The BioLite Campstove is a cool multifunctional device designed to help campers cook a quick meal and … charge their iPhone or Android smartphones!
The devices works on renewable biomass (twigs, pinecones, wood pellets, you know, the regular stuff you find on the ground in the woods!!!) and has an output of 2W @5V (max continuous), up to 4W @5V on it’s peak. In plain English an output power of 2W @ 5V means close to the same power as a PC USB plug (a 20 minutes charge will allow an iPhone up to 45-60 minutes of talk time). It’s not the fastest charge in the world, but still, I’d be glad to have it with me when outdooring for a couple of days, away of regular electric power sources.

Horween Leather Bi-Fold Wallet by TheLeatherShop.com - Interior View
I love cool wallets. I find a cool wallet not only boosts personal confidence and makes you feel the king of the world (!!!), but also makes you look good and allows you to make a statement, just like a pair of cool shoes, a fancy leather belt or a stylish timepiece!
The Bi-Fold Wallet from TheLeatherShop.com is a such cool piece of masculine gear! The Bi-Fold Wallet is made of high quality, strong Horween leather hand stitched with heavy duty waxed thread and features two main compartments for cash bills, three credit card compartments as well an ID card slot on the left hand side. The wallet has a slim design, fancy burnished leather edges and a lot of detailing elements designed to make it into a real head-turner: the Moose Brand logo is embossed on the front of the wallet and the TheLeatherShop logo is present on the interior card pocket and on the external side of the fold as well, a fancy slim line cut into the leather goes around the wallet margins on the upper side as well as it’s present on the outer fold to help the wallet keep it’s slim format.

ALSO FROM TheLeatherShop.com: Stitch-less Leather Rivet Wallet, Minimalist Slim Wallet and the Palm Wallet

While I am more of a minimalist wallet guy type, I used the Bi-Fold for a couple of weeks and I was very pleased with it. Other than it’s fancy look, the wallet is very well build and it’s designed to minimize the bulk – for example the leather pieces used to make the credit card slots are cut to not overlap on the sewing, which helps the entire wallet keep it’s slim format even when filled with cash and cards – check the review video to see more about it.

The Bi-Fold wallet is available in Brown (like the model reviewed here) and in Black. Check it out on TheLeatherShop.com website.
