Capture The Summer Feeling/Help Zigana and Her Dog

Still plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy the fresh clean interior colors.  Perhaps, right now is the best weather for being outside - here in Washington, DC it is a balmy 74 degrees and sunny.

American Pickers - The History Channel

The promo says "Follow expert antiquers as they scour the country's junkyards, basements and barns for hidden gems."  The few shows that I saw reminded me of "let's cheat some ole guy out of a cool relic".  But, that's just me.

A similar show, American Restoration, is incredibly interesting - Rick Dale is an expert restorer with a great eye for what is cool and what ain't.

Anyway, this blob pays homage to the American Pickers of the world.

Grooving with Soy - I got my Big Hair on!

Take a walk back in time.  
Back to the Summer of '89. 

New movie release directed by Spike Lee - "Do the right thing".  Radio Raheem roams the streets of Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn blasting Public Enemy's hit "Fight the Power" on his boombox.

Well, I received the new blogger pack from Soy and it has me feeling quite retro today.  I put on some big hair, grabbed some cool shades and popped a cigarette in my mouth - dance on!!!

Soy has created a cassette collection, portable tape players and boomboxes for the hipster in all of us.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/soy_sl/14465535158/

These groovy items are available today at Kustom9, which is already full.  Happy Shopping!
