It’s what’s on the inside

I love Toddland apparel and when I recently bought a few new pairs of their shipwreck shorts, finding Norm the disapproving seal inside was just lox on my bagel. What other brands do a good job with their tags or interiors? p.s. Fuck Norm, these shorts are dope.

Unlock history with a QR code

QR codes seem mostly useless, but artist Stan Flouride put them to good use when he made a mural of one in San Francisco’s famed Haight neighborhood. Simply snap a photo of the mural with a QR reader and you’re treated to historical photos of the neighborhood. Pretty rad, right?

Stan also gives walking tours of the neighborhood. If you want one from a legend, give him a ring at 415-863-1621.

Party off the pounds

I’m not sure what gave me the epiphany (or if you can call it one), but I’ve decided that indie electronic music and old Richard Simmons videos are made for each other. Do you agree?

Our June mixtape

Some mixtapes are tough to get through because there’s one song you keep playing over and over. You could care less what else is on it because damn, that track is catchy. To avoid that, I put the song that pulled me back into my emo listening days at the end. Kick back and click below to enjoy some new jams from Minden, Classixx, Sonny & The Sunsets and more.
