A walk in the Park, Volume 277

DAILY WARDEN TRACK: Today’s feature ditty is from a group that I’ve really gained a big appreciation for over the past five years or so, it’s a band who never seems to be sitting still.  In fact they are almost always on the road, or in the studio, or both – constantly.  They have tons of big fans & friends too, including Cypress Hill, with whom they played a 420 gig last year at the iconic Red Rocks venue in Colorado.  Indeed it’s SLIGHTLY STOOPID, who are launching their “Summer Sessions” tour in just a few days with G. Love & Special Sauce, Cypress, NOFX, and Stephen Marley!  This song is absolutely perfect for sippin’ sumpin’ in the sunshine on a sweet Summer day.  From the 2008 disc, “Slightly Not Stoned Enough To Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid,” it’s all groove with no lyrics, click that “play” button and saunter on with CIRCLE HOUSE BLUES.”
Buy SLIGHTLY STOOPID’s music via Amazon here.
Topic Of The Day: DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO ACTS WEALTHY, BUT ISN’T?  Have a look at a ridiculous article on how to “appear rich” here, then tell us about that nose-in-the-air, pseudo-millionaire on the official Park Warden facebook page, or text to 666 666.
SHARK ATTACK IN LOS ANGELES: Last week there was a shark attack at Manhattan Beach in L.A. County, the victim was not seriously hurt, but it looks like shark sightings are on the rise in the area.  Watch the waters and devour the details here.
MICROSOFT TO RELEASE SMART BAND: Tech giant Microsoft may be a little late in the “Smart Watch” market, but they’re about to release a new smart-band that’s supposed to be compatible with almost every mobile platform available.  These devices are definitely for more fitness-minded individuals than myself (way more), jog over the details here.
ADDICTION ISSUES CAN AFFECT ANYONE: If you know someone who has an addiction, then you’re probably on a constant search for answers and assistance.  I read an interesting article this morning on different ways of dealing with this touchy subject, if you’d appreciate some insight, go here.
