Dress your wiener up like a little cowboy with these chocolate hats from Dickhats. The caps are nicknamed “party hats” for obvious reasons. There are many types of hats from top hats to viking helmets. It’s like Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory for adults.

Some times you need a moment to relax and smile. And my friends, I think that moment is now. That’s why I’m showing you a Tumblr I just found. It’s called Cats in Space, and its gifs of space cats. Their are fat ones, scary ones, eyeless ones, and cute ones. Ahhhh.
And finally today… when I was a middle schooler growing up in Santa Cruz California, No Use For A Name was one band whose patch was on every kids backpack. The singer of No Use, Tony Sly, unfortunately has just died at the age of 41. The cause of death of has not been released but whatever it was, 41 is an age too early to go. Here’s a clip Tony recorded in his house just a short time ago.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m out of here. You have nice a rest of your day. Later.
Axl Rose is a great snacker and has been everywhere, Those Darlins have a new single, and a great skateboarding documentary from Socialist Germany called This Ain’t California. I’m Eddie DaRoza, and here’s your Daily Detour.
Axl Rose has been known as a lot of things. A rock star. A genius. An asshole. a guy who wears spandex and fur coats at the same time. And a white man who has dared to sport corn rows. But have you known him as a time traveler? And not only that, a hungry time traveler? Yes that’s right… according to a new blog Axl has been at some of the most important moments in history, snackin’ away. Here he is constructing the RCA Building in New York and having some pop corn. THe American Civil War with some Gogert. Enjoying some Cheetos during the Great Depression. And chompin’ a corn dog when the flag was raised on Iwo Jima.
Guy is a regular Forrest Gump.
Those Darlins is one of my favorite bands. They’re from Nashville and have lots of fun. They also have a new available for download. Here’s a clip.
And finally today… one of the coolest looking skateboarding documentary’s I’ve seen is coming out soon. It’s called This Ain’t California and it’s about a bunch of kids who grew up in socialist East Germany during the ’80s. They skated for pure pleasure on homemade shitty boards. Check out the trailer.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m outta here. YOu have a nice rest of your day. Later.
Supermodel Lily Donaldson is the raddest furry on Earth, Spin stops printing magazines, and Animal Collective is back with a new single. I’m eddie DaRoza, and here’s your Daily Detour.
When I was a kid one of the coolest posters I had on my wall wasn’t a poster at all. It was a SPIN magazine cover with Axl Rose on it. I ripped it off some mag I found and stapled it to wall, like millions of other kids. And unfortunately today, that era has ended. SPIN was purchased by new a corporation and they have suspended production indefinitely. IT appears the company is moving to an all-digital version. Rest In Piece SPIN magazine.
I think I’ve found the hottest furry on the face of the Earth. You know what furries are right? They are people who dress up in dog and cat costumes and do it like they do on the discovery channel. Today we get supermodel Lily Donaldson crawling around in a bikini and a cat head. It’s shot by photographer Nick Knight. Here’s a clip.
And finally today… Animal Collective is back with a new single and a new sound. The first track from the forthcoming Centipede Hz is called Today’s Supernatural. I’m enjoying it a lot. HAve a listen to this clip.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m out of here. You have a nice rest of your day. Later.
Vans teams up with Skateboarder Mag for some retro ’70s shirts, The Black Lips release Noc-A-Homa video, and Sex, Caffeine, and Alcohol. I’m eddie DaRoza, and here’s your Daily Detour.
I dare to submit to you that the 1970s was the golden era of skateboarding. The raddest time ever. Skateparks were everywhere, everyone had a blast, and skating had a good style. Vans has collaborated with Skateboarder Magazine, the definitive mag of the 70s on a new line to celebrate the bygone era. Check out this promo clip.
Like a fish needs water, I NEED to pick up a few of these shirts.
Oh hey. I’m just here enjoying my red bull. If I had a little vodka in here there’s a good chance I’d be on the look out for some casual sex. Because you know that’s how it goes, and scientists just proved it. According to an new study published in the Journal of Caffeine Research, young people who mix energy drinks and alcohol are much more likely to have random hookups then just regular old drunks. The scientist in charge says the reason is because “when you’re drinking lots of alcohol your judgement is impaired, and if you’re having caffeine you don’t realize how impaired you are.” But I think there’s a different reason. People who like caffeine and alcohol are more likely to like like fun. And having sex is fun.
And finally today… you might have heard the Black Lips ode to one of the greatest baseball mascots of all-time, Chief Noc-a-Homa. The indian lived in a teepee in left field, prayed for homers, and just did some cool stereotypical native american stuff. The Black Lips just released a video for the song. Here’s a clip.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m outta here. You have a nice rest of your day. Later.
Lana Del Rey’s hot sexy naked photos, Tom DeLonge doesn’t exaggerate and has HUGE Blink-182 news, and Foxy Shazam has a new video. I’m Eddie DaRoza, and here’s your Daily Detour.
Lana Del Rey has a sister named Chuck, they make out, and take naked pictures of each other. How hot is this shit? Weird? Yes. Cool? Kinda. Ok moving on.
Is Blink-182 breaking up? Is Angels & Airwaves merging with Blink to form one giant band? Has Tom DeLonge finally gone insane? Who knows! But according the the Blink guitar player Mark, Travis, and himself have had “career changing conversations the last few days.” Tom says “the magic he has been waiting for is about to happen.” So what you think? Mega-Blink changes on the horizon. Quite possibly so.
And finally today… we leave you with a clip from Foxy Shazam’s newest release. The video for Holy Touch has the guys rockin out like only Foxy does. Check it out.
Ok That’s all for me. I’m out of here. You have a nice rest of your day. Later.
