Sleep your way to the top in these headphones

Kokoon has come up with a pretty rad idea to help us all get a better night’s sleep, whether we’re cruising at 40,000 feet in the sky or just laying in bed listening to our neighbor sing YouTube karaoke. Its headphones are designed so that you can wear them comfortably no matter where or how you sleep, plus using EEG technology, they know what stage of sleep you’re in to promote your ability to nod off and stay there. I don’t know about you, but I’m never feeling very creative when I miss out on some shuteye, so I’d be willing to give these a shot. Kokoon launched a Kickstarter campaign yesterday, so move now if you want in at the introductory price.

Embrace the Grind

I follow the Hamburger Eyes YouTube channel because the conversation is always entertaining. Sometimes it’s ridiculous and it’s generally not elegant, but you will find wisdom tucked within. Take this recent video where Jamie and Ray talk about the pleasure/pain dynamic and embracing the grind, whatever yours may be. Over the past few days, I’ve been thinking about this and you know what? It’s working.

Gramming For Good

There’s caught grammin’, but I’d much rather be caught Gramming For Good. This new project from our buddy Daniel Cohen is connecting nonprofits with rad photographers that want to give a little of their time to give back to causes they are passionate about. The project is in soft launch stage, but is accepting applications from both nonprofits and photographers so it can do the matchmaking and make the introductions. Whether sparks fly is up to left up to the two cuties. For more info, check out the site and stay tuned for a June 11th event during SF Design Week.

New Tame Impala can’t come soon enough

You may have already heard Let It Happen on our March mixtape, but last week the Perth Aussies dropped another track off their forthcoming album. Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo has already taken to Twitter calling it fire and I have to agree. This track is so damn short, sweet and summery that it’s a major tease. I can’t wait for the full release of Currents on July 18th.
