Do you love music?  Do you love not being naked?  Well, we’ve got the website for you!

The staff at Guataca Music Wear are hardcore music fans and believe that nothing says ‘rock and roll’ like the emblematic black band t-shirt.  Created by world class designers these t-shirts are being brought to you as a part of a movement to help ensure children across the country have access to music programs at school.

Guataca wha?  What does guataca mean?  Guataca is Venezuelan slang. The word is used to describe musicians who have the ability to “play by ear.” If you have Guataca, making music is something that will come naturally.

When you purchase a Guataca Music Wear tee, a portion of the proceeds is donated directly to MusiCounts, a Canadian music education charity. MusiCounts’ mission is to insist that all Canadian children, regardless of cultural background or socio-economic circumstances have access to a comprehensive music program through their school.

Check out Guataca Music Wear today and support a kid who wants to play the guitar or the drums or flute or saxaphone or harp or banjo or xylophone or trumpet or the weird kid who just likes to snap.  Don’t be this guy, be cool and buy a t-shirt.


This invention was sent to us by an avid reader.  Jenelle.  Jenelle is pretty great.

Have you ever been sitting around for hours at a time waiting for your hot noodles to cool down?  I have.  I’ve missed out on many of my lifes milestones due to this problem.  I actually missed my high school graduation, atleast 3 job interviews and have been late for work on numerous occasions because my damn noodles take FOREVER to cool down.  Well, have no fear…the amazing Japanese inventors have done it yet again!  Introducing the noodle fan!  This compact fan will attach on to any size chopstick and weighs only 6 lbs!

I know what I’m having for dinner tonight!  Mashed pototoes….my noodle dryer hasn’t come in the mail yet.

If you have a cool Japanese (or swedish) invention that you think should be featured on our blog…let us know!  Email robin@chillmag.ca or laura@chillmag.ca.  Jenelle did and now she’s famous!
