Sunday Best: Cool Sh*t

Yeah, I know. I put the asterik in there... makes me sick, too, but every now and then, you gotta conform.

Anyway, I've been meaning to bring these two things to your attention for too long now. Long enough that I'm tired of The Tour Manager closing my Firefox window and the open tabs along with it. And it's Sunday. Seems like a good time to bring you a Sunday Best.

First off, we have a very cute set of cookie cutter and six cookie recipes from the folks at Punk Rock Kitchen. While this is sort of pink and definitely missing the biting social commentary that characterizes punk rock, it's still a lot of fun. I'd definitely give this as a birthday present to the younger set.

And next, this is something I'd totally like to track down and get for myself. It's a new graphic novel (and you guys know how I love my graphic novels *coughJoannSfarcough*) about an all-girl rock band, the Apocalipstix. The book was actually released in July, so it only took a month to cross my radar. Not bad, but really. They could have sent me a review copy and I'd be telling you all to go on over to Front Street Reviews and read what I thought of it.

So there ya go. Some cool shit for a US Labor Day weekend. Make it a good one; it's the unofficial end of summer. I'm going to miss summer around here. Sort of.

Hi- thanks for stopping by my blog the other day! Hope to see you again sometime soon.
 
That is a cute cookie cutter! I have one that is the Queensryche Tri-ryche that I was given as a gift awhile back, not sure if you can still get them or not, but I thought it was pretty cool! ;)
 
The cookie cutters and names of the recipes got me giggling. I sent the link to my husband, the punk snob, to see if he also thinks it's cute or gets in a snit instead over commercialization of his beloved punk rock and why the hell can't he listen to Flipper while making those Pub Crawlers?

And OMG on the Apocalypstix! After I wiped the drool off my chin, I got out the credit card. Duly ordered. I'll be harassing the UPS guy daily (but don't worry, he's hot so it's no hardship).
 
You?? Conform??? You're going to ruin your reputation!

PS: The Apocalipstix looks cool!
 
Apocalypstix! Man, I'm cracking up here. What a fabulous name for an all-girl band!

And Punk Rock Kitchen -- now that's sweet! ;)

I hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend, my friend.
 
The cookie cutters are fun depite the pinkness (I'm more happy with black).

Thanks for the well wishes. I have been feeling so poorly and it's been getting me down so your visit was appreciated :)
 
Ooo! Another book to add to your list. I'm feeling more band books in the future.
 
I'm with Thomma Lyn - Apocalipstix is inspired.
 
Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day. Wanted to pay you a visit and thank you for your visit to my blog.

And hey, I liked that you conformed in the title, but not all the way through the post -- a little blatant conformity to throw people off followed by subversiveness later can be the way to go sometimes. ;)
 
Conform? What? NEVER!!!

Haha - welcome to Entrecard though!! :)
