Our February 2018 mixtape

This month’s mixtape is the stuff of meeting musicians on radio shows, reading books about rock stars, and Anti-Valentine’s Day songs. For the next 45 minutes, enter this space. We think you’ll dig what you hear.

Our January mixtape

Like we’ve always intended, this month’s mix pulls music from everywhere – internet trends, jukeboxes, shows we went to in Brooklyn, and late night conversations with friends over pizza and beer. Discovery shouldn’t just be an algorithm, it’s a lifestyle.

2017 Holiday Gift Guide

This is just one of a million gift guides you’ll see this year. Still, we’re proud to share what we’ve had our fingers on the “shut up and take my money” button for lately. Go ahead, pick something out for you or anyone who makes things suck less.

Universe: Exploring the Astronomical World – It’s time to take a journey and see what we know about our far out universe.

Adidas UltraBOOST All Terrain – This mid-cut, water-resistant sneaker not only looks dope, but it’s like walking on cushions.

Gramovox floating record player – When your records are too fly to hide inside.

Onsen Towel – Sick of your towels being musty and moist, even when they’ve been on the rack all day? Premium cotton and good design can fix that.

Ork Posters: San Diego – Way back when we first heard about Ork and the entire Holiday Matinee team lived in SD, we felt left out. Well, all is forgiven. It’s also available in the aptly named Seventy and Sunny and Balboa Blue color combos.

Bluetooth Cassette Boombox – Finally, I can relive those demo tapes from my old college punk rock days.

New York City Transit Authority: Objects – Interesting things found in and around the NYC Subway.

Cinema Lightbox – Outfit your crib with your own inspirational message or clever copywriting.

Visualize Free Pizza keytag – At last, a keychain that increases the likelihood of free pizza by 67%. Available in all your favorite toppings.

Haircuts of Hackney – A colorful fold-out book documenting the extravagant hairstyles of people living in East London.

Uno + Ichi Basketball clay pots – They got game.

PSA Press pins – Lots of dope pins in this store, but I love this MJ and Steph Curry set. Don’t sleep on MySpace Tom or the IKEA instruction man either.

Adult Award Ribbons – That’s right, celebrate real achievements!

Boss Ross Chia Pet – We don’t give presents, we give happy little gifts.

Our November mixtape

As we swing deeper into the holidays, make time for yourself. You are incredibly important and if you think about it, you can’t help anyone when you don’t look out for yourself. We hope this month’s mix can play a part in that. As we’re reminded, “Life can turn out really good if you work with what ya got.”
