Vintage Stuff And Other Awesome Finds

I love old stuff, always have. I'm also a huge fan of music, and am slowly growing my vinyl collection up to a respectable size and taste. In this picturea are some of my latest acquisitions, including a pair of Sennheiser HD 280 Pro studio headphones, a Led Zeppelin II LP I picked up at a local antique store for an incredible price ($30 less than a local record store wanted for theirs), a Bradley Cutlery Kimura IV butterfly knife, the Pulp Art Book which can be found here, and an HD camcorder I found at a pawn shop for a good deal as well. Goes to show that you can find good deals and awesome stuff if you look at all sorts of places

Ted Nugent - Fred Bear

Fred Bear was an incredibly famous bowhunter, manufacturer, and television host, and is a pioneer in the bowhunting community, helping popularizing it. One of his achievements was taking a polar bear while armed with only a bow. Below is a song that is a tribute to the late Fred Bear by friend and fellow hunter Ted Nugent. Whenever deer season starts where I live the song gets a lot of airtime as due to it being about hunting and nature. Its definitely a good song to listen to while out amongst nature. Listen below to see for yourself!

Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song

The Immigrant Song is one of Led Zeppelin's most well known song's and is found on the album Led Zeppelin III, and was released as a single on November 5th, 1970. The song is full of references to the vikings and has an immediately recognizable guitar riff. I know I used this picture before, but it is incredibly fitting for this song. Just imagine listening to it while out in the ocean, would definitely be exhilarating.

The Eagles - In The City

I am a fan of the Eagles and greatly enjoy their rendition of In The City, best known as the song that play's over the credits of the 1979 cult classic The Warriors, which is one of my favorite cult films. I was listening to the song and realized the above picture went well with said song, and figured you guys would appreciate it as well.

ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'

I love ZZ Top, and the Eliminator is one of their best selling albums. It marks a departure from their earlier blues rock sound in favor for more of a 80s rock sound. Many of the videos associated with the album received constant rotation on MTV back when MTV was still playing music videos and help make the band a worldwide sensation. The picture is from the movie Death Proof, which despite some of its shortcomings is an entertaining movie, and is full of good looking girls and very nice cars, as can be seen in the picture.
