Stop being so sexy

Today I wrote Urbanears support because I lost the little plastic casing that went over my earbud. While the verdict is out on whether they’ll send me a free replacement, I had completely missed that the company started making speakers. I loved my custom┬ácolor Jawbone, but after it got stolen and the company went belly up, I was hesitant about buying something without support. I had done a little research into compact Bluetooth speakers, but everything out there looked kinda ugly. Until now. I know dropping a few hundred on this speaker isn’t the best financial decision, but I can’t promise I won’t still do it. Extra points for being able to┬áset up your favorite playlists as presets and the satisfaction that comes with twisting and turning real knobs. After all, we’re human.

It’s not just retail therapy, it’s blanket therapy

A good blanket is essential for park hangs, picnics, music festivals, and wherever else you need to rest your weary bum. And while I love my $15 find from a thrift store out in Sebastopol, these collections from Nipomo are next level. But you want know what’s even better? This operation comes from a mother-daughter team that works with skilled artisans in their native country of Mexico. Wanna make America great for the first time? Support good people running small businesses, no matter where they come from.

Our July mixtape

It only seemed right to start this summer mixtape with some Spanish flavor before progressing into hip hop, RnB, indie, and sealing the deal with a track from a real renaissance woman. Whether you’re clicking or tapping, it’s time to get your tunes.
