My Pop Life


But the creator

disagrees.

PRODUCTS I’M USING RIGHT NOW

Rabbit Lever
Corkscrew
I love the ritual of lifting
it out of the drawer,
positioning it atop a
bottle, and smoothly
extracting the cork.

1
Vans Comfy
Cush Sneakers
So much softer and
more cushiony than
a lot of other models.
Out of all my sneakers,
my new favorites!

2

LifeProof Vinyl
Plank Flooring
Finally pulled up the
carpet and replaced
with this flooring. It's
designed to hide any
repeating patterns.

JBL Bar
Studio
Hook up an optical
cord, plug it in,
and pump up the
volume!

The Best Money
I Ever Spent
I spent the majority of my
childhood in arcades, so I
saved up my quarters and got
my own refurbished Donkey
Kong Jr. arcade game. It’s
upgraded with more than 30
classic games, such as Mr. Do!,
BurgerTime, Zaxxon, and the
entire PAC-MAN family.

A baggie of “Blue Sky” from the
set of Breaking Bad. (Although I


its bluish color over time.)


SAY “MEOW” AGAIN!
Meet Jules and Vincent.
As entertaining as their
Pulp Fiction namesakes,
with similar criminal
tendencies.

My Favorite POP
Story So Far
“How Star Wars Filmmakers
Built the Millennium Falcon.”
As a Star Wars–obsessed fan
since day one, I got chills
when my favorite “piece of
junk” was reintroduced in
The Force Awakens. It was
inspiring taking a deep dive
into its inception (not to
mention geeking out while
designing the story).

Parenting
Hack
I came up with “Activity
Bingo” to get my
sons away from their
screens. It’s a bingo
board with 25 physical
activities, from 15
mountain climbers to
30 “Rocky” situps. Once
it’s filled, they choose a
non-digital prize.
