Awesome U.S. Military Patches Part 3

I thought it'd be fun to post some military patches, and ended up finding a treasure trove of good ones. I posted the first batch here, and the second batch here. I'll be posting more soon.














These patches (and many, many more) are all on sale at McGrogan's. Wired has also posted quite a few.

Sappy song from Allstate commercial made it to No. 40 on the Billboard charts

NY Times: It would be unremarkable that the song “From Where You Are” by Jason Wade, a singer in the band Lifehouse, had cracked the Billboard top 100 list — except that it was written for an Allstate commercial.

Unavailable on any album, the song has received little airplay on the radio but it had wide exposure in a 60-second Allstate spot promoting the insurance company’s safe driving program for teenagers. The commercial first ran after an episode of “Friday Night Lights” on NBC in late October that had a teenage driving theme.

On Nov. 6, “From Where You Are” was made available on iTunes, where it sold briskly enough to hit No. 40 on the Billboard charts for the week ended Nov. 24.



Wow, that song's terrible. Via.
