Dub On Ice

While on vacation in Hawaii, I suggested to Ulf Lindemann AKA [Dunkelbunt] that he needed to try an Ululani's Hawaiian Shaved Ice, and if you're fortunate enough to ever be in Hawaii, I urge you to do the same. Ululani's shaved ice is made with in-house syrups featuring natural fruit purees, fruit extracts, pure cane sugar and purified water.


Best of [dunkelbunt] out now!

    'Using only instruments available in the 1930s - from the theremin and musical saw to the harmonium and prepared piano', Orkestra Obsolete perform the 1983 classic, Blue Monday by New Order, the biggest-selling 12" single of all time.

    Milk & Cookies...With A Conscience

    Did you know that it takes a gallon a water to grow one almond? Avoid Almond Milk and try Good Karma Flax Seed Milk, instead. You will not be disappointed! Also, try a much more satisfying version of the "Nutter Butter" style cookie from Back To Nature. Remaining centered while snacking, now that really is good karma!

    "Baseball Been Berry, Berry Good To Me"

    It's a great time to be a Mets fan! Especially with their phenomenal pitching staff and the re-signing of Yoenis Cespedes. Following their first World Series appearance in 15 years, Spring Training is now underway and expectations are riding high for the defending National League Champs. Yet, I've been a Mets fan my whole life and we have a storied history, but I never envisioned two players coming to the ball park on horseback! Especially, a 6'6", 240lb pitcher in Noah Syndergaard (who throws 100 mph) and Cespedes, one of the most prolific power hitters in the game.


    This absurdity reminds me of two other Metropolitan players...
