Smartphone Friendly Fake Nails

20140118-115755.jpg
A few days ago one of my friends pointed out that my blog has been very male orientated, and suggested that I try to find a way to dig up some posts that would appeal a bit more to the female readers. The smartass that I am began to search for a story that would allow me to have a picture of boobs at the top of the post, but appearently the tech market isn’t as forward thinking as I am.

My searching DID yield this though: Set to be released in a few months, Elektra Nails are press on stylus nails that allow wearers to still be able to use their touchscreen devices while having manicured nails. Something tells me that there will be Beverly Hills boutiques and mall kiosks opening up that will specialize in these.

Thanks to Elle for giving me a reason to keep abreast on fashion news. Don’t worry, I’ll find a way to incorporate my audacious brand of humor a bit more.

Rain Down On Me
Santana’s Supernatural-Legacy Edition

This is an early version of the now fan favorite JTR, which always reminds me of Christmas.
Two years ago around Christmas time I was in Vermont hanging out with my friend Jared. We ended up pulling an all nighter, staying up playing music an doing a bit of drinking (by a bit, I’m inferring A LOT OF). Sometime during the night he bet me all of his presents (Christmas is an EVENT in his family, so I’m not talking about wool socks and fruitcake!) that I couldn’t guess his favorite Dave Matthews song, with in three tries, with three clues. And while a bet is a bet, I didn’t have it in me to collect on that one when I correctly guessed JTR. I did propose a compromise, and kept his handle of Jäger.

The song was originally written by Dave Matthews while he was hanging out with Carlos Santana, and recorded sometime during the ‘Supernatural’ sessions, but not released.

The Dave Matthews Band changed up the song a bit and recorded it during the now infamous Lillywhite Sessions, but when the unfinished album was leaked on the internet, the album release of the song was scrapped, and has not been revisited.

In 2010 the original recording done with Santana was released as one of the bonus tracks on the ten year anniversary edition of ‘Supernatural’.
