Even though rap music is famous for its double entendres, clever turns of phrase and ingenuity, this is the first time ever than anyone has attempted to bring together the most iconic rap in one volume. Not only is Understand Rap: Explanations of Confusing Rap Lyrics that You & Your Grandma Can Understand ($9) a laugh out loud reference book to one of the most important of pop cultures and based on the website that bears the same name, it also aims to explain the confusing lyrics and terms used in rap in a language that even the most un hip of us can understand. This book has massive breakout potential as it is both highly informative and entertaining. The clever juxtaposition of hip hop terminology and dry humor make this a unique volume that will appeal to many.

If you don't have a projector in your house get one! I have one in my office and I will be adding another to my basement after the remodel. I only buy Epson primarily for their service and return policy. The Epson 5020 has some pretty impressive specs. 320,000:1 contract ratio. 2400 Lumens, which makes it basically a light canon. Horizontal and Vertical Lens shift and 5,000 hours of lamp life. And of course 3D. There is also a 5020e version which has wireless HDMI, which is nice if your concerned about running cable. If you cant afford the $2599.00 price tag check around to see if you can find an 8700UB. All its missing is the 3D.
The Biltwell Gringo ($149) offers a look into the past with its throwback retro styling. The Gringo has opted for seamless design which harkens back to the vintage Buco helmets of the mid 70's.

Other features include a weight of 2lbs 4oz and rubberized grommets for removable shields. The Biltwell Gringo is available in flat black, flat titanium, gloss black, gloss hazard orange, and gloss vintage white. The Gringo meets all DOT safety standards.

Also included with the headphones is a 3-button iPhone compatible remote/mic and a protective travel pouch.
