3 Randoms

This post has been sitting in my draft folder for months now with only 2 Randoms. Finally, I found a 3rd. If you haven't noticed already, I love threes. Perhaps because I am one of 3 girls, so I feel like 3 is the perfect number for a series/ list. AND, the French have a famous saying, "Jamais 2 sans 3"="Never 2 without 3."  So here it goes...3 Randoms that Passporst Smiles is diggin' and has been diggin'. Can you dig?
 RANDOM #1: The BoomCase Store
Location, Location, Location: @ The BoomCase Store website.
What the hell is it?: Vintage suitcases turned into self-powered, portable boom boxes. Hand crafted by Mr. Simo.
Why Here on Passport Smiles? UH. COME ON. Vintage Suitcases turned into Boom Boxes?!?!  I can now die a happy man.
RANDOM #2: The Monster Supply Store
Location, Location, Location: 159 Hoxton Street, London N1 6PJ; Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 5pm
What the hell is it?: "The shop is part of Dave Eggar's Ministry of Stories project, a series of shops (including the Brooklyn Superhero Supply Store and the Valenica Pirate Shop) that give inspiration to writers– behind the shelves of monster supplies, they can find a secret area just to hone their craft."--UO blog.    
Why here on Passport Smiles? Because I've been searching for ages where I could buy that Organ Marmalade for my morning baguette. Nah, but seriously. Dave Eggar's is pretty cool and this project is cooler than cool. We creative types are always searching for muses.
 
RANDOM #3: The Peanut Butter Platform
Location, Location, Location: Rotterdam @  Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
What the hell is it?: Essentially a slab of museum floor covered in real peanut butter, artist Wim T. Schippers created the floor art....to 'show that in principle everything is meaningless and absurd, but is therefore worth the effort nevertheless.' " UO blog.
Why Here on Passport Smiles? BECAUSE I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER. And it's just awesomely weird.
 
So, to create continuity, let's conclude by tying these 3 Randoms together into one sentence:
Boom, Boom Clap your way to the Monster Store Supply Store while jamming the song, "It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time" 
Did that work?
