Who doesn’t love gadgets? But lack of space is a common problem. Those with kitchens on the smaller side may want to look into a Blendtec blender. A bit of a misnomer, this appliance does a lot more than mix things up. A hard worker, it plays the part of coffee grinder, juicer, food processor, ice cream machine and more. Pam Anderson has one on her counter specifically to make her own peanut butter, she recently told Healthy Living.
Brad Goreski has a bit of a foot fetish. As in he cares. Earlier this month, the celebrity stylist partnered with Dr. Scholl’s to help attendees of New York’s Fashion Week to walk not only in style but also without pain or blisters.

Martin Scorsese stepped up last year to honor the 50th anniversary of one of his favorite literary publications, the New York Review of Books. “The 50 Year Argument,” which airs at 9 p.m. Monday on HBO, mixes archival footage, contemporary interviews and scenes from the Review’s NYC office. Scorsese’s affection dates back to the magazine’s beginning, when he was a student at New York University and spotted the Review at his local newsstand.
