must haves this summer...

okay, so here's some must-haves to help get you through the hot summer months!

MUSICAL JEWS--the hottest radio show around! listen all summer long on saturdays, 6-9am pst, online live at DJ oy-dog (that's me!) spins some fierce jewish tracks that will make you laugh, cry and love the hot beat of summer!

THE YIDDISH POLICEMAN'S UNION--by Michael Chabon. This is a fantastic murder-mystery with a historical Jewish twist. What if Jerusalem had been re-formed in Canada instead of the middle east 60 years ago? Who killed the Yiddish chess-playing genius in the hotel room that detective Meyer Landsman stays at? this book will keep you turning the pages this summer as you lounge around the beach!!!!! p.s.--I've heard that the Coen Brothers are turning this into their next movie!!!!!!!!

HaDag Nachash--Live!!!!---this live album from the Jerusalem superstars is the perfect soundtrack for cruising around the boulevard on these hot summer nights, or on your way to the beach!!!! All of their best tracks are featured in a live performance captured on CD. A standout for me is their smokin' live version of "California", a song featured in "You Don't Mess With the Zohan." A must-have for HaDag fans, or those who want something fun to listen to this summer.

this is a hot album, man!!! pepi really gets 'into your bones' and stays there!!! she is so unique and original. Her music isn't 'jewish' per se, but I think she is. If you're into alterna-chick music at its best, this is the album for you!!! a must-have album this summer!!!

if you've seen them, then you know what I mean...everyone seems to be wearing them here in Santa Cruz, from the young to the old. They look like wet-suit shoes, but they have individual toe slots, like those toe-socks, but you can wear them as shoes. I've seem people dining out in them or just running errands in the city. They are hot, hot , hot baby!!!!!!!

That's right, the egg-cream is back. A one-time soda shop favorite makes its return for these hot trendy summer months...there is no egg involved, but it looks like an egg when served. It is soda, chocolate, ice least I think that's what's in it. Perfect pleasure food for a long, hot summer!!!!

that's it for now...hope you have a great summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
