Long before Diddy sampled them, Beats referred to a group of writer friends, and later, a literary and cultural movement that spanned from the early 1940’s to the mid 1960’s. The Beats: A Graphic History is the story of the beat generation, characterized by nonconformity and defiance of conventional writing, as told by comic legend Harvey Pekar and his artistic collaborator Ed Piskor. Together they effectively represent the essence of the beat era with their stylish approach and smart graphic format.

 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.
