Great T-Shirts For Men!

Coyote writes about a new gift idea –

T-shirts with the entire text of great books printed on them. Here is the one for Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. My son wanted a George Orwell one but there are none available as of yet. Most seem to be books old enough to be in the public domain, which is likely no accident, though there are a few newer books.

All the great books as a fashion statement. I wonder what Da GBFM (TM) thinks? Lozllozlozlozlzolzlzlozzlzlzzzzzzzzzz

Saturday Night Studio – Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers (And The Van)

“Our music definitely hearkens another era,” says Nicki Bluhm, “but at the same time, we want it to be contemporary. Reflective of now even though it nods to other times. We want it to be vintage modern.” – Nicki Bluhm

Nicki Bluhm rides around in a van and sings various songs while the band plays in the back. That’s the entire gimmick.

Is she any good?

I guess they do qualify as a band on the run, or at least on the go, and they do an okay cover of McCartney & Wings… their version isn’t awesomely great, but I like how they interpreted the classic intro (which I always thought should have been expanded into songs of their own).

They cover Madonna’s “Material Girl” which just amuses me, and they do a nice fadeout at the end, and do a good job with Stealer’s Wheel as Nicki is stuck in the middle.

My favorite is “I Can’t Go For That” by Hall & Oates, which features a little toy-style keyboard and the …. unique… solo, in addition to what I consider to be one of her best vocal performances –

I kinda have to include this one, given the title –
