So I do this thing at my school, where when a kid gives a very thoughtful answer, or an answer that I did not think about, I stop the class, and we give them golf claps. I did it one day, spontaneously, and it stuck.
These bumper stickers are going to be end-of-the-year gifts for two students that I thought gave really insightful answers. They will be my Golf Claps Champions for this year. And it will be good. I should probably take pictures of them with their stickers and have a hall of fame.
Record Store Day is April 19th and the closer we get, the more info on exclusive releases trickles out. Sure, there’s plenty of cool stuff from all your favorite obscure indie bands or whatever (like a 5 LP set of LCD Soundsystem’s last show!), but what’s REALLY awesome is the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game soundtrack featuring sexy tunes from Anamanaguchi. If that’s not enough awesomesauce to pour down your pants, there’s also a single of "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr. with the original song plus dance remixes, but more importantly, it glows in the motherfreaking dark.
Record Store Day is a way to celebrate and support independently owned record stores all over the world. Each year musicians release exclusive rare vinyls and, in a way, it’s kind of like collecting Pokémon. Check out the full list of releases announced so far here and be sure to check with your local record store to make sure they’re ordering that weird rare thing you want.
I need that Ghostbusters disc, and I need to remember to do this on the 19th. That’s the day we get back from Florida, so I wonder if I can con my wife into doing it with me.
As if our love of all things BIC Cristal couldn’t grow any more insane!! They’ve released a Cristal Stylus Pen! Ballpoint tip for jotting down notes on paper and a rubber bottom for working your touchscreen device.
But what’s up with the US version? The silver version (top two images) resembles the classic Cristal design that we love so much. The US version is kinda… blah. Do Stateside people really need a pen clip?

Remember when Honey Maid released that “wholesome families” ad, featuring same-sex couples, parents with tattoos, biracial couples, and other general awesomeness? Conservatives were pissed. So Honey Maid did them one better and released another video, addressing the hateful and homophobic comments head-on. And now I’m crying. (via the Huffington Post)
