If you’re anything like us (and we know you are) you have “purchased” an album only to find the only thing worth listening to is the single. Gorillaz Plastic Beach is most definitely not that album. Plastic Beach is an amalgamation of musical genres and vacillates between mellow, 80’s synth pop and electric-backed hip-hop – sometimes in the same song. Rolling Stone said it best, “It’s almost like if James Hetfield quit Metallica to join Dethklok.” With a collaborator list as long as your… arm (Snoop Dogg, Mos Def, De La Soul, and Lou Reed stand out – along with a video cameo by Bruce Willis), there really is something on this album for everyone.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
