I used to own a record store in Lincoln, Nebraska (How's that for indie cred!). I stocked all sorts of music from around the world, but particularly the midwest. I can remember carrying records by Minnesota band The Blue Up? and frontlady Ana Voog's anavoog.com album. You may know Ana Voog better as the woman behind anacam, a 24-hour a day, 7-days a week webcam. Ana was just featured in a documentary called Webcam Girls that profiles some of the leading lights behind the webcam phenomenon.
As if being a musician, artist, collector, and webcam diva wasn't enough, Ana is now fiendishly crocheting amazing avant-garde hats and accessories. In addition to her crochet website, she also runs a crochet-based livejournal called String Theory to keep us up with her comings and goings. Ana Voog's hats are everything that hats should be...impractical, individual, and WARM! They are an outlandish tribute to the lost art of hat wearing.
