In a new installment of fun, we’ve decided to compile a weekly list of our favorite cool and awesome music-related goodies. It could be clothing, it could be a book; hey it might even be actual music! Here’s our first round of this week’s Music Must-Haves!
Something about this Lionel Richie teapot has us “Dancing on the Ceiling.” We discovered it thanks to George Takei’s Facebook page and of course that means it’s currently sold out. However, it’s worth keeping an eye out since it would make a perfect gift for anyone that has “Endless Love” for tea. via Etsy
Talk about reuse and recycle! The Pickmaster Plectrum Punch Maker is more than just a tongue twister, it’s a fun gadget that punches guitar picks out of old plastic cards. Have an expired gift card or credit card? Now you can have guitar picks! via Amazon UK
I know, I know how many posts can we write about The Smashing Pumpkins? However we can’t pass up the amazing reissue of Pisces Iscariot as a Deluxe Box Set. The original album featuring radio hits like “Landslide” has been remastered and also comes packed with a ton of b-sides that you used to have to pay a fortune for, as well as a DVD of live performances. Another cool thing is it also has all the original lyrics, which is a real treat for Pumpkins fans. via The Smashing Pumpkins
Babies, babies, babies. It is baby season around the homefront. I know five babies that are on the way which has me revisiting all the adorable baby rocker clothes out there. Whether it’s a boy or a girl, these cute onesies are the perfect gift for any little one with an edge. via My Baby Rocks
I may be a bit on the nerdy side but I love picking up a good book to learn something new. This book “How to Listen to Great Music” by music historian Robert Greenberg is an interesting read that makes you think about music in a different way. I was hesitant that it might be a snooze, but what surprised me the most was how the author injects humor between information on Beethoven and how to re-imagine the concert listening experience. He takes you on an enjoyable music history journey and also teaches you a thing or two about music genres. via Amazon
