Remember when everyone was saying Polaroid film would be gone forever?

That might well have been the case, but the creators of Impossible Project swooped in to save the day. When Polaroid announced that it was the end of the line back in 2008, these new protectors of the instant film tradition hustled to pick up the slack and bring the world’s most beloved film back into the hands of professional artists and fun-loving hobby photographers.

And now that 2016 is but a fading memory, Impossible Project is releasing a special limited edition film pack called Lucky 8. Made for Polaroid 600 and Impossible I-type cameras, this pack celebrates January 28’s Chinese New Year by adding a colorful spin — and a moment of surprise — to the snapping experience.

Instead of the classic white border, the Lucky 8 pack frames your pics in a lush pop of metallic red. For every photo but one, that is. One shot in your pack will be framed in gold, and there’s no way to know which one it will be until the moment of truth. Bring your film pack to a party and endure the suspense until your singular gold frame appears.

Impossible Project has its sights set on releasing a new limited edition film pack for each upcoming Chinese New Year, so your Lucky 8 photos can be the launch of an ongoing collection you’ll be proud to show off. Isn’t the year of the rooster is already looking fab?

Check out Impossible’s awesome “about us” video to get a feel for the kinds of magic you’ll be making with your Lucky 8 pack:

The 10 best medium cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Man smoking cigar casually outside his home, best medium bodied cigars.

Cigars come in a range of strengths, from mellow and mild to full-bodied. The middle road, as you might expect, is a solid medium. One misconception I commonly see about cigar strength is that it directly correlates with flavor. While full-bodied cigars do offer robust and unique flavor profiles, it's not always true that they are the most flavorful. If you know where to look, you can find many mellow to medium smokes that are still flavor bombs. A perfect example of this is the . Yes, it's a mild to medium blend, but the flavors are incredible, with a creamy buttery finish. Medium smokes are also what I would recommend to friends, family, and acquaintances who don't like the toasty and smoky flavors of a stronger cigar like a Maduro. Without further ado, here are the best medium cigars I've tried and tested in 2024 and would recommend to everyone else.

Man choosing clothes at his walk-in closet

Like personal finance or basic kitchen skills, organizing your closet isn’t something that gets taught anymore. Now is the perfect time to refresh your drawers and cabinets for a fresh new season. If you’re like most guys, your parents (i.e., your mom) did this for you while you were growing up, sneaking into your bedroom while you were out to collect your sh** from off the floor and put it back into your closet and drawers where it belonged.

Focusing on something you can control — the clutter in your closet — is a rare treat. Organizing your closet is an undeniably good use of free time, and it will make it easier to find items you're looking for.
