Drum pencils for the rock star dreamer

You know the type, the one that picks up a pair of office pencils and does an impromptu drum solo, like they’re playing to a crowd of thousands- not a water cooler and the photocopier. Pander to their fantasy with these perfectly formed drumstick pencils! Pretty self explanatory, you can keep writing and drum away to your hearts content whenever the moment takes you.

Do-Tell: Tina Glengary, Professional Experience Maker

“I live to learn and learn to live. Every day”. This is what drew me to Tina Glengary. She’s an experience maker, professional daydreamer and has a knack for telling one story at a time. Compelling?

  1. I heart Dropbox! This is the future.
  2. The Nan Goldin spread for French Vogue is amazing.


Band tattoos never go out of style

Tristeza is an excellent instrumental psych-band from Tijuana and Oakland. Their music is so moving and often times cinematic. I highly recommend you checking them out and once you fall in love, you too can get their record tattooed on your arm.
