While few people love airdrumming more than me (seriously, I challenge you to find someone), I think investing in one of these bad boys would leave me with no friends. Read on for one of the most amazing things...ever.
According to their website,
We could do what those other supposedly geeky apparel companies do and print a regular t-shirt with a cool looking picture of a drum kit on the front... then say it was trendy, make a few Rock Band references and try to convince you to buy it. But we don't roll like that. At ThinkGeek we know you expect innovative new products and we're here to pony up the goods. So, how about an electronic t-shirt with a picture of an actual playable drum kit on the front? That's right. Hit the drums on this shirt with your finger and they play through the built in speaker... simple but amazing. With 7 different drum sounds you're ready for a personal drum solo on your chest.
- Tap the drums on this shirt and they actually play through the embedded speaker
- All drums on the shirt are playable
- 7 Different drum sounds in all
- Battery pack with speaker stores in hidden pocket near hem of shirt
- Adjustable volume... the top volume level is really loud

Yea, we rode those... That's what she said.
'Cause I'm a vegetarian and I'm not fuckin' scared of him....
Just shreddin' with what looks like a giant blow-up Wiggle.
Sweet hangz, but where's Bleachie?
We'll blow one last kiss to all the beautiful nights like this under the Central Jersey sky... but actually, it's the Central Jersey sky!

I'm already learning so much from the rat book! It's also making me even more paranoid walking home at night when there's a ton of trash along the street but... I'm surviving.
I was in my bedroom – I had two roommates at the time, but they were both out for the evening – and I heard a noise in the bathroom. Sort of a rustle-around kind of noise, so I got up and peered into the bathroom, looked all around, and that’s when I saw the giant rat running around inside the bathrub. I screamed like a girl and closed the door. Then I poured a glass of scotch to think things over, and I decided my best option would be to poison the rat without trying to confront it. So I looked around for some kind of poison in the apartment and all I could find was furniture polish – it was Lemon Pledge – and also I thought I remembered something about rats liking peanut putter, so I mixed some Lemon Pledge with peanut butter and put it on a tiny piece of cardboard and slid it under the door and then waited. After about fifteen minutes I decided to peer in, and the peanut butter was untouched. So then I looked in the bathroom and didn’t see it. And then I looked around and it was up on the sink staring at me. And then I screamed like a girl again and closed the door. I had another scotch and ultimately decided I needed to go in there and confront it, so I opened the door, didn’t see it anywhere, looking all around, but there was a towel on the shower-curtain rod blocking a window ledge, and I figured it had to be on the ledge, so I grabbed the towel to pull it down, and I can’t figure out to this day if I saw the rat on the ledge or it just dropped down into the bathtub, but now it was running around in the bathtub as scared as me and it couldn’t get out – its claws were scraping – and so I decided I could drown it. So I turned on the water, waiting for it to drown, and that’s when I had the tragic realization that rats can swim. But then I thought I’ve got it trapped, so now I just have to kill it, and I went back to the kitchen looking for something more poisonous than Lemon Pledge and I found the Comet kitchen cleanser. So I went back in and the rat was swimming around in one end of the bathtub, and I poured a bunch into the other end of the tub, and it formed the large, scary green pool. The rat swam toward it, and the second it hit the pool, it turned belly-up. Then I realized I had to get it out of the tub, and I didn’t want to touch it, so I used a plastic bag and cut holes in it to drain the water, and I ran it out to the incinerator chute.

Simple Plan to record "punk-pop" version of Hockey Night in Canada theme
After it scooped up the beloved Hockey Night in Canada theme song this spring from rival broadcaster CBC, CTV announced yesterday that Montreal's Simple Plan would be the first band to re-record the song.
The Juno Award-winning band's unique punk-pop version of the theme -- now known as "The Hockey Theme" -- will debut during the Boston-Montreal game on TSN and RDS on Oct. 15.
"This is a very cool and a huge honour for a bunch of diehard hockey fans," said Simple Plan drummer Chuck Comeau. "This song was a huge part of our childhood, and we are all stoked to have the chance to put our own 'Simple Plan' twist on it and to record it for the millions of hockey fans tuning into TSN and RDS."

Mine would probably have to be the following... but I'm open to suggestions.
