Etsy seller Chicsindesigndotcom wants you to rest and sit on top of a sleeping grizzly bear. It’s not only a good living room fixture, but it can also be a guard dog.. err, bear for uninvited guests. If you can’t handle grizzly bears, you can rest your toosh on either a brich wood or a cotton wood.
Sometimes you have to sacrifice in the name of science. And Grizzly Bear takes that concept to a whole new level in this music video from their most recent album Shields.

Now, the debut We Have Band album is due to drop in a few days.
In early 2009, Blind Man’s Colour suddenly found themselves the subject of tastemakers attention. Grizzly Bear’s Ed Droste said, ‘You guys must hear these guys, love it!’, via Twitter. Which was good enough reason for us to check in and get a Secret Playlist from them. They started their Playlist off with the Lotus Plaza […]
