This beats all the other outdoor hot tubs I’ve seen. It’s simple, stylish and functional. You fill it with water, start a fire and convection circulates the water to heat it. They have a factory 2 hours south of Cornwall & it might make for an interesting road to go and try out one of these DutchTubs. ($6,000 US)

Skuter (a.k.a. Zdravo)


I like my German Polka Rap just as much as the next guy* so I’m happy to hear whenever a new song is released on the international market. Lately, however, “being released on the international market” just means “re-doing everything to make it more sexy“. Who’s job it is to “prepare” a “musician” for the international market? How do I get that job? Looking at the before and after videos it’s easy to follow the thought process of whomever was in charge:

Ok, so vee must take the black shirts off vee vomen, put them in bikini. Zand make the tractors smaller so zey look larger. vee vant the album to zell in americas so let’s add a hummer zand big yello house. Zand add vater!

Yup. That’s right, you heard it here first. Wikipedia hasn’t even figured it out yet… sheesh.
