Happy Chair

If Steve from Blue's Clues can have his "Thinking Chair," certainly we groovy people can have a "Happy Chair." This exceptional model comes from The Happy Shak in Foley, AL. Very groovy things for sale there. Be sure to visit next time you're in L.A. (Lower Alabama.)

Royal Commands

Royal commands can be groovy - that is, when one is commanded to do the very thing one does without having been commanded.

Wing Windows

Window technology has come a long way. I suppose that the wing window allowed you to direct air in the car while simultaneously allowing the main window to be rectangular for the ease of engineering the frame, handle, etc. Now that designers have figured out a way to make a not-rectangular window go into the door pocket, they have also figured out that one window is cheaper than two, and adios wing windows. Pity. They are groovy. We miss them. And we don't even smoke.

Converse Nails

Ok, while this is not actually something we groovy people would personally wear, we applaud the groovy, unexpected, delightful expression of personal identity known as nail art. Who thinks of this stuff? Way to go.

Mental Floss

Here's what Mental Floss has to say about the word Groovy:

First heard amongst jazz musicians in the 1920s, groovy — or groovey — was a word used to describe music that was played with feeling and finesse. It was based on the phrase “in the groove,” which referred to the way a phonograph needle on a record player followed the grooves of a record. To be groovy was to be in perfect sync with the music. Strangely, in 1947, 20th Century Fox used the word in a promo trailer to describe and promote the Christmas classic Miracle on 34th Street. The word made a major comeback in the 1960s, of course, as a kind of generic for anything good, as when Simon & Garfunkel famously sang, “Life I love you, all is groovy.” The Austin Powers films brought the word back again in the ‘90s, in a kitschy way. And kitschy is what groovy will probably remain.

Here's what we groovy people have to say:

Austin Powers is a wanne be, jealous impostor, nothing more. Just sayin'.

Time Enough

What is the grooviest thing about a holiday like New Year's Day, when everything is closed and you have the day off to do anything? Time. Time enough. Time enough to read, or, whatever. At last. We groovy people love having time enough.
