Stranded In Stereo: Minus the Bear go Acoustic on .... Acoustics

Minus the Bear go Acoustic on .... Acoustics

It was just about a year ago that the BFF and I were on the way back from that They Might Be Giants show at the 9:30 Club and he put on Planet of Ice. For years, friends of mine in college were all about Minus The Bear and I just looked them over, obsessing more over Pollard and Pixies reunions when everyone was playing Menos el Oso. Immediately, my ears are locked on to his speakers as we jaunt across streets named for states and interstates that bring about stories and tales of speeding tickets and impending traffic court meetings. The music is brilliant and like nothing I had heard in awhile. From the programmed loops of "Knights" to the epic finale "Lotus", which is the greatest Pink Floyd song ever, I was finally being converted to a fan. And here I was obsessing over a man who could drink himself under the table.

Off the heels of last year's
Ice, the band is turning to the internets and their upcoming tour to sell the upcoming EP, Acoustics. Of the seven songs, one is new ("Guns & Ammo") and the other six are takes on MTB classics. "Knights" takes a six string in place of that catchy loop and adds in licks of piano underneath for good measure while "We Are Not A Football Team" becomes 70s AM Gold that your parents would love.

The Bear is currently on the road, and
Acoustics is out now.

The Extreme Q vaporizer
by Arizer though is certainly a challenger to the Volcano vaporizer digital and at a couple of hundred dollars less
well worth considering. Some of the different types are tobacco, digital, portable, electric, herbal vaporizers and many such devices.

Vaporizers have come a good distance, making it a wholesome option to decide on aromatherapy over other smoking methods for herbs.
With a click of the button the herbs heat up super fast, and the best part is that the external part of the vape is cool to
the touch making the handling of the vape super easy.
Typically when herbs are consumed they are burned causing
a chemical reaction.

Also available in varying proportions of nicotine giving better control over the
health hazards like cancer etc. While you should
not smoke marijuana regularly, you can save your health by
knowing that its grown organically in safe soil and using a vaporizer instead of a smoking device.
There is no need for the buyer to get an expensive Vaporizer yet

Vaporizers provide a healthy alternative to different strategies of smoking herbs.
Light weight and portability is its biggest advantage.
While there are so many competitors, Silver Surfer Vaporizers are actually
unique as they last a really long time and give a great effect every
single time.

Though it does not grind the herbs as fine as the herb grinder, but still
is very useful in case you do not possess an herb grinder.

Perhaps the greatest advantages to a handheld Vaporizer is the
portability. There are presently two American patents which mentions that the herb is a thermogenic and causes an increase in the metabolic
properties and the benefits are all accrued due to this property
of the herb.

Try to do this is the most non-threatening way possible; in fact, OUT of the bedroom is the best place to start exploring this topic (another hint: don't bring up using sex toys for the first time right before, or right after, having sex. try out a new material for your dildos or vibrators, and you'll become one of the
most self-aware girls you know. Across the street in the Pleasure Plaza, Rhonda Milligan could be heard screaming at police raiding her store, "You can have my dildo when you rip it from my cold, dead, callused hands.
