Music: Bob Dylan thankful that his weird Christmas album helps the homeless

  • They get food straight to the people. No military organization, no bureaucracy, no governments to deal with.
  • Bob Dylan • Regarding his choice to offer proceeds of his bizarre “Christmas in the Heart” to hungry and homeless charities. He mentioned this in an interview that ran in London’s “The Big Issue” and other similar sold-by-homeless newspapers in the U.S. That’s right, a guy who never does interviews with anyone gave one to a homeless newspaper. Random. But awesome. source

Offbeat: Jones Soda subjects Tofurky soda on the Thanksgiving world

  • While many think that eating turkey is the only way to celebrate Thanksgiving, we at Jones Soda suggest that this year you try something new and toast the noble bird with a cold bottle of Tofurky & Gravy.
  • Jones Soda President and CEO Joth Ricci • Describing his company’s new “Tofurky & Gravy” seasonal soda. This company, famously, has sold holiday packs for a number of years, finding excuses to subject the public to wildly awful flavors of soda, but the idea of a Tofurky one takes the cake. Proceeds from the $11.99 holiday pack, which also includes three normal flavors (a change from prior years, when the other flavors were often as disgusting as the turkey), will go to PAWS, an animal charity. • source
