When I was in California at Christmastime, a friend and I spent an afternoon visiting a few locations in Pasadena when you can see the Rose Parade floats in the process of being built. That was really fun and totally recommended! At one location, they also had booths set up where you could buy overpriced Rose Parade and Rose Bowl swag, and that’s where I saw this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Van!

The Pot Truck

I see this truck — which I affectionately call The Pot Truck — parked around my neighborhood all the time. It sells THC-infused hard candy (in the form of lollipops) and most likely other types of green things. Today It was parked at 14th Street and First Ave right by Stuyvesant Town, so I spotted it right away as I got off the bus. As I took this photo with my iPad, the proprietor, shall we say, walked around the side of the truck and made this friendly gesture at me! If you squint, you can just make out the phone number you need to call to contact the friendly people in the Pot Truck. Apparently, they deliver.

Black Halos Gear Stolen in Montreal!

Black Halos

The Black Halos are an awesome bunch of guys that are one of my favorite garage/glam rock bands as well as being good friends of mine. A couple of nights ago the band’s van was stolen after they played a gig in Montreal. The van contained all of their equipment and merchandise. Like all working bands, the Halos do not have the funds to replace this equipment and are both emotionally and financially devastated. Those of you who know me well know that I have in the past been the victim of grand larceny and that my feeling on the subject is that stealing is just as bad as murder.

While the thieves responsible deserve to be apprehended and thrown in jail for life, the important thing now is trying to recover this equipment and get the Halos back out on the road bringing the rock to the masses. Below is a list of everything that was stolen, along with contact information for the band should you have any leads. Please feel free to repost this list on your blog and to circulate it among the rock community in case musicians might see these items in local pawn shows along the east coast (but likely within the Canadian border). Good Luck Black Halos. I will love you guys forever.
