Polk-Audio-HitMaster

If you’ve already ditched your crappy plastic guitar for a better one to enhance your Rock Band and Guitar Hero experience then you might also consider replacing that dull TV audio with a dedicated stage monitor. The Polk Audio Hitmaster brings your performance to new heights with a pair of 2.2″x5.5″ horns, twin 1″ tweeters and a booming 6.5″ subwoofer. It includes line level inputs and outputs do you can daisy chain them and it has a 1/8″ input so you can plug in your iPod. Expect to see the HitMaster in early 2010 for around $100.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
