I couldn’t resist sharing the brand new Grupo Fantasma video by Onion Creek & API Productions. Produced and directed by friends of Adam’s and featuring Adam (as a dancing green disco ball and a crowd member) and others in his crew, it brings us back to the days of the cheesy 70′s & 80′s PBS telethons we loved to hate. Check out the new single “Gimme Some” (click on HQ for high quality):

The Chocolate Cleanse

A couple weeks ago, Adam’s parents sent him two babkas — one was cinnamon, the other chocolate. The brand is Green’s Babka and while these kosher sweet loaves are made in Brooklyn, they are available right here in Austin at the HEB off of Far West in the kosher section.
