BILL MURRAY: Knock, knock.
YOU: Who’s there?
BILL MURRAY: Bill Murray. I’m here to party.
YOU: Sweet. WTF took you so long?
Could it be true? Could this happen to you? The website Super Official News announced that this summer, Bill Murray might just come a-knockin’ on your door, ready to rock, as part of Bill Murray’s Party Crashing Tour. According to the site, it’s simple, really. All you need to do is throw a kickass party packed with alcohol and karaoke—easy peasy. Then hang a sheet or banner outside your house that reads “BILL MURRAY CAN CRASH HERE” in neat, legible letters—also easy, just get your personal assistant to do it. This will let Mr. Murray know he’s welcome. Then, just wait for Dr. Peter Venkman (aka Steve Zissou, aka Raleigh St. Clair) to show up thirsty and looking for action.
Sound too good to be true? That’s because it is. Sorry to report it, but Bill Murray’s Party Crashing Tour is nothing but a hoax. But it still might be a good idea to throw a karaoke-infused rager. Perhaps you should you and your assistant should practice your harmonies on the Ghostbusters theme song…it’s always a crowd-pleaser.
You’re a regular globetrotter, but your poor fishies always seem to get left at home. Let them experience a slice of the jetsetter life with the World Map Fish Tank. Designed by Takuro Yamamoto, the clear acrylic fish tank emulates a world map that your fish can swim through. They’ll be summering in Greece and sight seeing in Dubai before you can say “Go Fish!”
Ahead Of Its Time
You had a cross fade haircut and neon OP shorts at age 5. You had the Nirvana CD by age 9. And by the time you were 12 you had acquired a taste for foie gras. Suffice to say you’ve always been a little ahead of your time. So you can relate to the heir of the Heinz food empire who dreamed up the 1938 Phantom Corsair. The six passenger coupe prototype’s doors opened via electronic buttons rather than primitive handles, and the dashboard included a compass and altimeter. The seating configuration was reversed to sit 4 people in front and two in the back to accommodate a beverage cabinet (you have more in common with this guy then we originally thought). Mr. Heinz planned to put the Phantom Corsair into limited production, but he died in a car accident before it came to fruition. Now restored to its original form in the William F. Harrah Foundation, National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada, the one and only prototype has secured its place in history as the most futuristic car built in the Thirties.
