Mother’s Day gift ideas for Hipster Moms

Running out of time for gift ideas for Mom? Does Mom spend a lot of time in the kitchen, and you’d like to ‘Hip It Up’ a bit for her? Here’s some ideas for you. I know it’s a bit late, but Mom’s know it’s the thought that counts. Remember, as always, you can click on the images to enlarge them.

First is The Shredder Cheese Grater. This grater comes in different guitar styles and colors. Available from Gama-Go.com

The Hot Hits Pot Holder is also from Gama-Go.com It can be used as a trivet or as an oven mitt to pick-up hot cast iron handles.

Mix Stix are available from FredAndFriends.com They are for keepin’ rhythm in the kitchen. They have a cookin’ end, and a rockin’ end!

This EP Cutting Board does not photograph well because it is tempered glass, but believe me that it looks great on the counter! Available from JosephJoseph.com and comes in two styles to choose from.

This awesome Skull Spatula was a gift to me, so I can’t really tell you where to get it. I did a search for it, and there are a ton of different sites that sell it.

This is a box set of 7″ Records Dishes. Four dishes total, plus the awesome box. Made by Bret Bortner BIA.

And last is this Skull Salt-N-Pepper Shaker set. Sorry, that was a gift too, but I’m sure you can find it with a search.

Hope this helps. If the gift is a bit late, I’m sure your Mom will understand.

RE: email from Jack White

Mugshot

Got this email from Jack White which is pretty good… His new solo release ‘Blunderbuss‘ is awesome, by the way!

In the email there’s a link to see Jack’s interview and performance on The Colbert Report, which is hilarious. I’m not really familiar with the show because I don’t have cable, but the interview is great. As well as all the other links on the email…

Anyway, here it is…

BLUNDERBUSS IS #1

Thanks to the fans for making Blunderbuss the #1 album in the US, UK, Canada. Portugal and Switzerland! If you haven’t purchased your copy yet, pop on over and grab one here.

In case you missed the live stream of Jack’s American Express Unstaged show at Webster Hall in NYC that was directed by Gary Oldman, you can still watch select performances, trailers and short films from the event here.

Jack stopped by the Colbert Report to visit his friend Stephen last week. Watch what happens when Stephen tries to interview Jack, followed by his performance of “Freedom at 21.”

This summer Jack will be performing at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO. Tickets are currently on sale for this August 8th show.

Don’t miss out on the Third Man Records video curation. Jack and his trusted sidekicks have pulled together a diverse assortment of clips highlighting the current scene in their home of Nashville, choice cuts from their Third Man stable and golden gems from Detroit greats. Dig in.

LIGHTNING BOLT VINYL & TOUR KICK-OFF TAILGATE

We would like to officially announce what we feel is one of the most beautiful and unique limited edition pieces of vinyl we’ve yet produced here at Third Man… The Jack White Blunderbuss Lightning Bolt Vinyl. Perfect in it’s simplicity, a regular black LP with a brilliant flash of blue vinyl running throughout, these LPs are some of the most striking and interesting records we have made due to the variations produced in each individual record. Every single record is, in it’s way, one of a kind.

In our ongoing quest to explore new and innovative distribution techniques, the Lightning Bolt Vinyl will only be available via the Third Man Rolling Record Store at Jack White live dates and other RRS apperances throughout the summer, while supplies last. We will limit the amount of Lightning Bolts sold at each location to 20 in order to more effectively spread these to different territories around the United States. They will remain on sale from the Rolling Record Store as long as supplies last..

Starting with Jack White’s upcoming tour beginning on May 15th, The Rolling Record Store will be at many locations around the States this summer. Here is a look at the next batch of appearances. Many more dates to be announced very soon.

May 12 – Secret Stages Festival, Birmingham Alabama
May 15 & 16 – Third Man Records – Jack White tour launch and summer sale (more on that below!)
May 18 – 20 – Hangout Fest, Gulf Shores Alabama
May 21 – End Of All Music, Oxford Mississippi
May 22 – Vintage Vinyl, St. Louis Missouri
May 24 – Scottish Rite Theatre, Detroit MI

And now, about that sale mentioned above! We’d like to send Jack off in style for his Blunderbuss tour with a little tailgate party here at Third Man Records on the dates of his Ryman shows. And by “party” we mean “sale”. But a FUN sale with lots of great stuff. The Rolling Record Store and some local food trucks will be parked in the lot, while in our Blue Room we’ll have tables upon tables of White Stripes, Raconteurs and Dead Weather merchandise.. all at a great discounted price. Everything from a wide assortment of T Shirts, to tiny red theramins, to buttons, bags and lots lots more. We hope any fans travelling to Nashville for what is sure to be two legendary nights at The Ryman will join us from 3pm to 7pm on May 15th and 16th.

R.I.P. MCA

I learned yesterday while out for a weekend that Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys passed away from cancer.

This makes me sad. The Beastie Boys are one of my all-time favorite bands, and I had the pleasure of meeting Adam after the Tibetian Freedom Festival outside RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. He was very gracious and I have the greatest respect for him and all he’s done.

He will be missed greatly.

Name That Movie

Have you seen the ads for the new book by Paul Rogers called Name That Movie? It looks great…

If you watched the video clip above, you know that he shows 6 drawings from a film, in sequence, no movie stars….and you have to name the movie. Easy enough…

Can you do this one?
