Who Is Worth More: Foo Figthers, Kanye West or Adele? Corey O'Brien |

Who Is Worth More: Foo Figthers, Kanye West or Adele?

Perhaps you want to throw the best BBQ anyone on the west coast has ever seen and invite Vampire Weekend to play.  Well, it will only set you back $100,000 to $200,000.  It's about the same for Weezer.  Perhaps you are having a bachelor party and you know it won't be epic unless Tiesto provides the beats.  No problem! $200,000 to $400,000 will get it done.  Who know, maybe $50k less if you throw in a pizza and some soda pop.

Deggy Entertainment has thrown together a list of a bunch of acts to help you plan your next book club with a performance by Adele (three-quarters of a million).

Get a load of the full list here.

Who Needs a Roof?

I am going to be homeless on Monday...at least for a little while.  The talking heads say the economy is on the upswing while the unemployment rate hovers around 10% so I feel pretty lucky to have a job I love doing but in uncertain times I feel it is a good time to cut back.

I am giving up my apartment.  I am not married and don't have pets so I don't have to talk anyone into this little expiriment or put a poor animal through it (not that I would).  I eat out nearly every meal and am in no way a homebody.  I'm never really at my house - only my stuff is.  Also, I am horrible with money.  My folks were more "do as we say" rather than "do as we do" parents so I think of lot of what they did rubbed off on me: buying things I don't need as a form of entertainment.  I hate the idea of credit cards but I use and abuse them like a lot of us do.  So couch surfing, a PO box and showering at the gym will be my new routine.

The plus side is I won't have to pay anyone rent and will just pocket the money and pay off my credit cards (really, who needs 3 bikes and 3 snowboards?).  No TV?  Good, I can get through the 8 books I've started.  Maybe I can use the money I save to go to Germay next year for the real Oktoberfest or save for a down payment on a home of my own (granted I choose to do this for more than a month).

So all my stuff: pots, pans, dishes, the majority of my books, camping stuff, chairs, sofa, TV, a rarely used dinner table, bookshelves, bed, blu-ray player, nightstands and everything else are going into storage. I suspect after about a week I am going to hate myself for attempting such a lame idea.  When after work I have no place to rest my feet and watch "Louie" or "Curb Your Enthusaism" or "Apocalpyse Now" I could be scouring the web for a new roof.  Stay tuned...

P.S. I did the photoshopping of the dollar bill all by myself.

P.S. pt. 2:  Maybe when this is over I can write a book like this:
