Memora-Willie-A (Willie Nelson Memorabilia) to be Auctioned Off

Back in 1991, Willie Nelson, amidst a divorce and a squabble with the IRS, sold his hideaway home in Evergreen, Colorado to a real estate investor as-is. That investor put all of Nelson’s personal affects into storage, but now, 26 years later, he’s auctioning them all off. We’re talking everything from memorabilia t-shirts, tour itineraries, and handwritten lyrics (co-penned by Johnny Cash), but also antique lamps and chandeliers, and even a gold-plated bidet. You heard that right. The auction opens this Saturday at 1:00 CST and ends next Sunday at the same time. If you want the opportunity to own your very own Willie bidet, you can find a link on our website.

Bonnie Tyler To Align With Celestial Spirits

As Americans gear up for the total solar eclipse happening this Sunday, Bonnie Tyler has announced her stamp on the day’s legacy. Passenger’s on Royal Caribbean’s Total Eclipse Cruise will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the total solar eclipse not only in the eclipse’s path of totality, but also while Tyler sings her smash hit “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Tyler and her backing band (which has Joe Jonas among its members) are working to condense the song down to about 2 minutes a 40 seconds, the projected duration of the eclipse.
