Cool Flops and Beach Shoes

5 Jun

Lots of cool beach footwear on the market — some traditional, some trendy.

These are two of my favorites:

Both are very comfy and reasonably affordable. Havaiana’s are pretty much your basic old-school, rubber flip-flop. They are stylish and seem to hold up after frequent wear and tear. They run about $20 per pair and can be purchased on line. The Sanuk Sidewalk Surfers are “super funkional” and are made with recycled materials, dude. They are a bit more pricey at about $50 per pair. 

Pick up a pair of each and get down here to Siesta Key ASAP.

Summertime is in full swing!


Tom Petty’s New/Old Project

5 Jun

The band is called “Mudcrutch.” Bad name, good CD. It’s actually the band Tom Petty and a couple of the Heartbreakers were in before the record company busted them up back in 1975. Going full circle, Petty recently got all the boys back together to have another go at it. A couple weeks in the studio produced some of the old Mudcrutch magic and a pretty darn good record. Check out the video for the first single, “Scare Easy.” You gotta love, Petty. He continues to rock after decades of hard living. Old TP is hard to look at, but easy on the ears in these days of packaged, processed Top 40 garbage. Some may consider him a dinosaur, yet I will be a sad guy when Tom and his type are not around anymore.

This is what new CD cover looks like – pretty bizarre.
