Daisy Rock Guitars

Everyone should learn to play an instrument. It doesn’t matter if it’s the piano, violin, French horn or Didgeridoo, what matters is the joy that playing music brings to your life (if you can play the Didgeridoo, color me very impressed and a bit jealous).
However, in my humble opinion, few instruments can top the fun of the electric guitar. The power! The whammy bar! The loud noises you can make! With just three simple chords, you can play the entire Ramones oeuvre. But instead of your basic black axe or classic sunburst model, why not go for something with a little more pizazz? Perhaps, something with…sparkle? This is why we love Daisy Rock guitars.

But recently, we read a story that cast chatty birds in a new light. Because if a parrot can save a baby, we shouldn’t really be talking smack.

Cooking Mama…Kills Animals?

If you dabble in video games, then you’re probably familiar with Cooking Mama, the popular Nintendo game where you chop, boil, slice and dice your way to high scores. In comparison to World of War Craft and Grand Theft Auto, what could be more innocent than a smiley woman cooking a wholesome meal, right? WRONG.

Sometimes you have t-shirts in your closet that you never wear, that really don’t fit and that are just plain clutter. But the thing is, they have a history.
