The Checklist - April 2012

The internet is full of magical, mystical things. So much, in fact, that it is sometimes hard to sift through all of the crap to get some decent information. In the interest of providing you with colorful ideas for everyday life, we here at the What present the Checklist so that you may find some helpful information from other sites along with a comic that makes us giggle.
Seduce Her With Your Space
Men's Health Magazine
Men's and women's magazines often times are a bit out of touch with the reality of everyday men and women, but every once and awhile they have some good information. For example, the Men's Health website recently posted an article about sprucing up your living space to boost your attractiveness to a potential significant other. Many of the tips in this article are spot on, a provide a good lead-in to some of our upcoming features relating to snazzing up your apartment. 

Rittenhouse Fair and Square
Philadelphia Art Alliance
I am a big fan of local, handmade goods. I even run a shop that focuses on the sale of such goods. So you can imagine how pleased I was to find that the Philadelphia Art Alliance has put together a special pop-up shop featuring some of Philly's finest artisans and craftspeople for the month of April. This shop will be open from 11-5, Tuesdays through Sundays from April 10-24. Be sure to swing by next time you find yourself in Rittenhouse Square.

13 Simple Steps To Get You Through A Rough Day
The title here is misleading. It seems a tad self-helpy, as though it is a list of things you can do to improve your demeanor on a less-than-stellar day. Actually, it is just a random conglomeration of stuff from the interwebs that will force you to smile. So head over to Buzzfeed and enjoy this month's random internet entertainment.

Ties You Can Afford
The Tie Bar
I like ties. I don't like spending $40 on ties. The Tie Bar is the perfect solution. These high-quality, stylish ties are only $15. With such a wide assortment of colors, styles, fabrics, and designs, there is something for everyone here. Don't forget to check out the silk pocket squares, which sell for only $5. You won't find a better deal on quality ties anywhere else.

Strange Maps
Big Think
Being a bit of a map nerd, finding the Strange Maps blog and book was a goldmine. From a map of Oz to the map of the London Underground and its hidden animals, this site covers it all. One could waste away the hours perusing through the many magical and mystical maps that the blog hosts, or for the serious collector of strange things, grab a copy of the book. Either way, there is a lot of strangeness to enjoy!
