Action Item Dunkin Donuts Music Lounge

Monday Action Item visited the Kiss 95.7 Dunkin Donuts Music Lounge for a performance and Q&A session that was also broadcast on the internet. I was lucky enough to be 1 of 15 to win passes, although I don’t think even half the winners ended up showing up.  Oh well, they missed out on a good time!

We were brought into the lounge where the guys played 3 songs – Marching Band, Learn To Fly and Brave.  Then they did some Q&A which at times they had me cracking up.  Though only Brian and Anthony had mics, they did let Dan answer one of the questions – although Anthony had prefaced it with saying Dan doesn’t get a mic because once he starts talking he doesn’t stop.  He talked a bit about how they met up with Drake Bell and ended up crashing at his house in LA for a couple of weeks.  Of course, it ended  with Anthony confirming that is why Dan doesn’t get a mic.  They joked around a lot and I was cracking up for most of it. The things these guys come up with to say is just nuts.

After all that – we were taken in the hall to do photos with the band.  It is always great to see the guys and I was glad I was able to win my way in since I had missed Warped Tour!


Book Review: Monumental Money

 This book is awesome. It is only about 77 pages but it has photos of all the money that is in circulation and the different looks to it and it also gives you some history on the currency as well. But really I just like it because it’s pictures of lots and lots of money.  There’s only 1 $1 bill design in circulation, but there are 3 for $5s, $10s and $20s, $50s and $100s. (And 1 for $2 bills)  Kind of interesting.  But that’s because they haven’t gone and made colorful $1 bills yet.

Super interesting read for anyone who likes money. And that is just about everyone now isn’t it?

I received a free e-copy of this book to review from the publisher through NetGalley. I was not otherwise compensated.
