Ain’t no brain freeze like a Slurpee brain freeze

Just a reminder for those of you of the U.S.A. persuasion who enjoy the occasional frozen refreshment of a Slurpee (cherry for me, thanks):

Today is July 11th, 7/11 – the day in which all of the land should pause for a Slurpee. For as long as I can remember, we have always gone as a family tradition on 7/11 day, and explained to the slightly confounded worker behind the counter that it was 7/11! So we were getting a Slurpee! Yeah, nothin’ in response except, “That’ll be $3.26.”

FINALLY this year, someone started listening to us and 7-Eleven is offering FREE (7.11 oz) Slurpees today. You still have a few hours left. Go! Go! They’re best late at night, anyway.

Just finding the pictures for this post made my mouth water a little bit.

    We have no 7-11′s in Georgia anymore. Our version of the 7-11 is QuickTrip (QT).

  • um, “Brainfreeze” session (all 45s) by Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow is about the greatest thing ever.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
