so thanks to a radio contest on hot 97, yours truly snagged herself two tickets to see kanye west at revel on December 28th as well as a room for the night. I do enjoy watching him perform live, even if he is only on stage for 12.87 minutes. just kidding, it was more like an hour and a half. but enjoy the pics! revel is a very very cool place. you should check it out before it drowns in debt completely.
who doesn’t love a good bargain on etsy? more often than not, I find myself scrolling through the “geekery” section to see what little trinkets I can add to my laptop or iPhone. and then I came across GraphicPals. never in my life have I seen such uniquely awesome phone cases. from dr. spock’s ear to ice cream sandwiches – they have it covered. check out my favorites below:
impress your friends with this sparkling punch thanks to a few bubbles and some cranberry juice. it’ll have you feeling light and bubbly and give you the confidence to belt out that journey song come 1 am. I might even make this myself tonight before heading out for an evening in the LES. salud!
“All together you get a red sexy drink that will make your guests very happy.” - cocktail-guru.com
4 Bottles of champagne (750 m”l – strandard size)
4 One liter bottles of cranberry juice (1 liter = 0.25 Gallon)
Chop up the strawberries, put in the bowl, add ingredients, stir well. Before serving add 5 glasses of ice and stir again.
If you would like it sweeter add some strawberry juice or some simple syrup (melt sugar with equal amount of hot water).
I absolutely love this story. david allen canterbury, let’s call him DAC – I feel like we’re on that level – started violently hitting people at a Toys R Us in Oregon with double-fisted light saber swords last Christmas. the police stepped in and he tried to fight them off with his light saber too. in fact, he actually blocked a taser wire with the lit up plastic sword. obviously he was detained and forced to have a mental health screening. I can’t imagine why.
however, as of yesterday, he will be in jail for 45 days. so if you’re in the area, go visit. ask him if the force is with him. otherwise, feel free to shop at that Toys R Us, DAC is banned anyway.
