Plus-Plus Building System: Farm Animals

plusplus_01

We’ve been a fan of Plus-Plus building blocks for several years. Ever since I picked up a small box a the National Building Museum giftshop, my son frequently busts out the container and starts building. The innovation of Plus-Plus’s design is that every piece is the same. We’ve gathered different color collections over the years, but we’ve never had building instructions or specific plans in mind. This latest set comes with preselected colors so you can build your favorite farm animals.

AJR at Fillmore Silver Spring

ajr_26

Brother trio AJR has been tearing it up with several songs gaining traction and attracting fans left and right. You may be familiar with Sober up (featuring Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo) or Weak or Come Hang out. They have a light and fun sound, but their lyrics are layered and they don’t leave you very quickly.

Cool stuff from American legend JOHN GLENN

From the John Glen. Estate sale

They had a great selection of personal effects and ephemera from his life, as well as normal household goods that are now epic! because they belonged to astronaut John Glenn. Click below for a brief tour of what I got. The photos, of course, feature my high-end replica Neil Armstrong gloves. Because astronauts.

Monster Jam’s Matt Cody

Blue Thunder

We got to chat with the driver of Blue Lightning, and winner of DC’s 2017 Freestyle Contest, Matt Cody. Monster Jam is headed to the Capital One Arena in Washington DC this weekend with three bone rattling shows. We’re happy to cheer on Matt, as he hails from Williamsport, MD, just up the road from the Capital Beltway. In fact Cody first fell in love with Monster Jam because his parents and grandparents would take him to the nearby Hagerstown Speedway on his birthday to watch all the monster truck action.

GWAR at Ram’s Head Live

gwar17_11
GWAR came back to Baltimore last week, and rocked us all with songs from their new album Blood of the Gods.

If you’ve never seen GWAR live, I want you to the following. Go into a room with a mirror. Turn off all the lights, close the shades, and light one candle. Then I want you to look at your reflection in the mirror, and ask yourself if you’ve ever seen a bigger pansy.
