Micah’s Pocket Paradox:
It does not matter in which pocket you place your keys, for when you exit the store, laden with a hand-full of awkward, unwieldy shopping bags, you will find that said keys are in the pocket on the same side as that hand.
I thought I’d throw out a little more blog-love to a good friend of mine. If you’re a musician, specifically a guitarist, you owe it to yourself to check out http://www.pappasamps.com/ Cody is an accomplished amp builder and has dedicated many hours to perfecting his amp design. He’s a firm believer in “old school” tech, and open-source design. Having worked on older amps from the 50’s and 60’s, he’s taken the best aspects of those classic designs and refined them. I’m no electrical engineer, but I like what I see in his amps, and I know that he knows what sounds good. So, if you’re in the market for a good amp that’s highly customizable and easy to service, check it out. Tell him Micah sent ya.
If you’re in a bind trying to find a good gift for a male friend/coworker/family member, you can always give them the gift of a good shave. Get them a shaving brush and a puck of soap or even a tube of shaving cream and point them to http://www.badgerandblade.com/ They’ll be in for a life changing experience. If you’re on a tight budget, you can get a simple boar hair brush like the burmashave brush available at your local Walmart for less than $5 and a $1 puck of Williams shaving soap. If you want to step it up a notch, get them a basic badger hair brush like the Tweezerman (available here for $10 with shipping included) and a puck of soap from Sue. If you want to lavish that special man with luxury, then you might want to think of putting a Crabtree & Evelyn Best Badger and a tube of quality shaving cream under the tree. Then, if you really want to work wonders in his life, get him a decent double edge razor and a blade sampler. He’ll love you for it!
If your fella’ has already taken the red pill, then might I suggest you check out my wishlist of movies? There’s some real gems in there, and you never know, you might just find something you want to see as well.
As always, if you order from any of these places, be sure and tell them where you heard about them. Hope this makes your Christmas shopping easier this year!
