Poster Pairings: Slow Down

We’ve blogged about this print once before, but it just so happens to be the perfect match for a dreamy Mac DeMarco song. You can rush through life (that much is true), but it won’t be as enjoyable as it could have been (take my advice). This weekend, remember to take it slow and let it go. You’ll be glad you did.

Street Art From The Coolest Teacher Ever

I’m really digging how French artist Levalet is using everyday objects to create street art in Paris. It’s the kind of stuff that gives me a quick chuckle or smile, and in a week where the internet is focused on an earthquake and riots, it’s necessary. Word is that this guy is also a teacher, making him automatically the raddest teacher I’ve heard of. See more of his work, going strong since 2012 here. [via WebUrbanist]

These fortified bike lights are the last you’ll ever need

It makes me feel like a lazy ass to say this, but taking your bike lights off and on can be a pain. If you don’t, they’ll likely be stolen by some young rapscallion and then there are those days where you stay out all day and forget to bring lights for the ride home. Sure, there are workarounds like lights on your helmet or bag, but these Fortified Bike Lights seem like a much better solution. A proprietary screw-system makes them theft-proof, they’re fully rechargeable and in the case that something does happen to them, they’ll be replaced free of charge. That simplifies your life now, doesn’t it?



Our April Mixtape

On this month’s mix, we’ve got everything from a 16-year-old rapper who you probably know through his father to our buddies who have been making music for 16 years and are still going strong. Throw the headphones on and escape for the next 47 minutes of your life.

HEYO! Not seeing the cassette tape above? Listen here.

The T-Shirt Reimagined

I’m really tempted to back this new Kickstarter project from Stockholm-based ASKET that reimagines the men’s t-shirt. Instead of five standard sizes, their design offers short, regular and long varieties of each to fit better. They’re made of 100% Egyptian cotton in a factory that treats their workers right and ASKET is completely transparent about how much it costs them to make each one. As an added bonus, they offer a t-shirt repair kit because they don’t believe in fast fashion. Check ’em out if you need some new threads that look almost as good as your significant other after two weeks paid vacation and a trip to the day spa.
