Matty Matheson’s Pantry Staples

If you’re a fan of the FX series “The Bear,” Matty Matheson needs no introduction. He plays Fak, the heavily tattooed handyman on the series, but his most significant contribution to the series might actually be behind the scenes. Matheson is a chef, and serves as a consultant on the show in addition to his acting duties, ensuring that the kitchen scenes and culinary creations depicted feel authentic. Now he’s launched his own brand, the Matheson Food Company, which will produce all kinds of simple pantry staples (sauces, salad dressings, boxed mac & cheese) with branding that draws heavily on our collective nostalgia for classic brands that were part of his childhood. This piece in Creative Review digs into the new brand and what makes it distinct in the food scene. 

The First Trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Trap


It’s possible that the trailer for Trap, the new film from M. Night Shyamalan coming this summer, gives too much away. In the event you want to be completely surprised, I won’t describe it here. But it’s also possible that the director famous for giving us big twists in his best films is only showing us the set up, maybe the first few minutes of the movie, in this clip, and that the real surprises come later. Regardless, Trap looks great, and if you choose not to watch the trailer, rest assured in knowing that the concept outlined therein feels genuinely fresh and exciting. 

How Singles Changed a Writer’s Life 

If you have a soft spot for Cameron Crowe’s 1992 cult classic Singles, you’ll definitely want to give this piece in the New York Times a read this weekend. Honestly, you don’t even need to be a big fan of the movie. It’s just a sweet story about how a fictional story mirrors a real one, filled with memories of a unique time and place in our popular culture: the early 1990s in the Pacific Northwest. Grunge rock, flannel, and coffee shops ruled the day. A simpler time, perhaps, and one that if you happened to experience at any level, never really left you. 

A History of the Boston Dynamics Atlas Robot 

One of our favorite genres of YouTube video is the niche content that shows Boston Dynamics robots doing insane things. They are mesmerizing and also weirdly terrifying in how strangely lifelike they are. It was recently announced that their humanoid robot, Atlas, is being retired, so for the occasion The Verge has compiled all of their coverage of Atlas going back years. If you’re as into robot videos as we are, this is a treasure trove. 

A New Camera Strap from Peak Design

As FStoppers reports, Peak Design has introduced a new camera strap to their popular range of aftermarket photography accessories. These straps are almost universally regarded as among the best in the game by serious and amateur photographers alike, and now we have new options in a brand new colorway the brand is calling Coyote, a nice neutral tan color. It’s available in the standard Peak Design sizes (Slide and Slide Lite) as well as their popular Leash product and the Cuff wrist strap. Head to the link above for a full breakdown of the new straps. 

Almost Every Cybertruck Has Been Recalled 

Welp, not a great week for the world’s richest man. We go back to The Verge for our last story this week, concerning the much discussed Tesla Cybertruck, and a massive (and hilarious) recall notice that just went out. It turns out the accelerator pedal (kind of important) has a fault that can result in a pad dislodging and becoming trapped, keeping the pedal at full throttle (kind of dangerous). The recall notice impacts 3,878 vehicles, which is effectively every Cybertruck that has been delivered to this point. Unlike other Tesla recalls that have been fixable with software updates applied remotely, this one will require owners to actually have their vehicles serviced, which Tesla, of course, is committed to.
