Note: If you’re out barbecuing this weekend, send me a pic of something BBQ-related via twitter to @johnbonobos. I’ll pick one random pic and one of my favorite pics and send the photographer 50 bucks in store credit.
For 4 years, I’ve been a member of a BBQ Cooking Team called The People’s Republic of Swina. A couple of months ago we competed in the World BBQ Cooking Championships and got 10th place out of about 300 teams that competed and about 6.8 billion other humans that didn’t get admitted to the competition or have the courage to apply. There are about 12 people on our team. James and Denny do most of the work, and the rest of us get to share in the credit as long as we offer to shovel charcoal and don’t sound like total idiots.
If you’re throwing a BBQ this weekend and don’t know what you’re doing,
Bonobos has teamed up with our friends at Jawbone® to bring you a limited edition JAMBOX™. What is a JAMBOX? It’s a wireless modern day boombox, only slightly bigger than a stick of butter, that connects to your smart phone, MP3 player, tablet or laptop and puts out surprisingly big and buttery hi-fi audio. Mmm, butter…
You’ll be amazed at how much sound this compact speaker can put out, and the quality, whether you’re streaming Pandora, a baseball game, or Netflix is truly stunning. And better yet, the JAMBOX also doubles as a speakerphone so you can have impromptu conference calls no matter where you are. There’s no reason to ever let tiny, tinny computer or cell phone speakers hamper your listening pleasure again. Check out the above video to see what we’re talking about. Also, check out what the main character is wearing. It’s almost all Bonobos!
I was going for My Little Pony crossed with a heavy dose of hallucinogenics. So, admittedly it’s probably the Angel Dust talking here but I’ve always been fascinated with the delicacy of the fake horse hair that they glue into each My Little Pony doll. And I wake up this morning and finally go ahead and do it – I cut the hair off my entire My Little Pony collection (yes all 63 of them), glue it to my ceiling fan and, viola, this amazing hat. As for the rest of the outfit, I won the jacket in a wrestling contest with the receptionist at my pediatrician’s office, I found the black beak under the seat of my mom’s Ford Focus and the blue jumpsuit + black shoe combo are standard issue here at the asylum.
