Kanye's new album will drop Friday and fans will forget that this is a guy battling a severe mental illness.

Anyone have a recommendation on a really good pillow for neck pain/soreness? I've typically used some $30-50 memory foam ones but I want to step it up and get something that'll be worth it. I'd spend anywhere up to $200 which sounds crazy, but there is 2 things I don't skimp on; bedding and shoes.

I **** love my pillow. I went through 5 before finding the right one for me.

They have an 'Eden' version now, which is $20 more and supposedly helps keep you cool. The original definitely isn't a "hot" pillow, but it's also not a designed keep-cool pillow. If it works, which I can't attest to, it would be worth the $20 upgrade.

But yeah, $60. I bought some way more expensive than that before finding this.

When my dad turned 69 I called him and just said nice and he understood and I have never been more surprised or proud.

Nobody who knows me and my dad would say I have anything close to my dad's personality. :lol:

Woke up to some nice damage to the vehicle, 07 Buick that could run for close to another decade. Not the first time it's happened (assume homeless carts based off location and other variables) but this is the first time a ding went down to the metal. With that being said, should I just let it go and rust a bit or should I get it fixed? I'm normally one to let my car go without worrying about the superficial looks, but this one is going to grow in due time.

How big is the mark? You could just order a touch up pen and get something covering the metal. Itd be tough for me to put much into a 13 year old car.

I'd fix it before it rusts... rust can definitely become more than just superficial. It should be pretty easy to do yourself, obviously depending on where it is, how big, etc.

Maybe bout half inch and a second smaller one that I discovered today, I was thinking just a touch up pen as well. 13 years old but it was my parents for the first 9 who coddled it so it's in real good shape minus a few scratches.

Appreciate the responses. I'm pretty frugal and love justifying not repairing minor damage, but I really should just spend the small amount of cash and get this touched up.

They have an 'Eden' version now, which is $20 more and supposedly helps keep you cool. The original definitely isn't a "hot" pillow, but it's also not a designed keep-cool pillow. If it works, which I can't attest to, it would be worth the $20 upgrade.

But yeah, $60. I bought some way more expensive than that before finding this.

This is rated #1 on Consumer Reports (by a lot). Actually the one they rate high is "Premium Adjustable Loft" and that's wha I ordered so I don't know if it's exactly the same one you referenced. $60. It will be here Tuesday. Obviously it's very subjective with pillows. I've been through many and I'm pretty happy with my current one (down). I hate memory foam pillows but never tried the shredded foam kind so I'm giving it a shot.
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.
