Grateful Dead / Phish Alpaca Fur Hoodies
There’s been a number of these bad boys floating around the lots the last year or so and I’ve seen a lot of people looking for them. They’re made from Alpaca fur (naturally) and I don’t have one myself but they look pretty fuzzy and comfortable. Many of them have the Grateful Dead dancing bears [...]
Top 24 One-Hit Wonders of the Decade
Billboard just released their list of the top 24 one hit wonders of the decade.

Grateful Deadopoly – Now You Can Own Shakedown Street!

The Bacon Brothers – Kevin Bacon Can Sing?
While surfing through Facebook today I noticed a YouTube link to The Bacon Brothers on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn Ferguson. Apparently Kevin Bacon not only can dance and act, but he sings and plays guitar? And he’s good at it? Quite the renaissance man if you ask me. Apparently they’ve been playing [...]
