My favorite shoe just went rasta.

Amazing people, sugar cane, bananas, beaches, marijuana, reggae, jerk chicken…the list goes on and on for why I love Jamaica. I’ll be back in 8 weeks and couldn’t be more on the hunt for these limited edition Chuck Taylor All-Star Rasta Cap Hi-Tops. Pop open a few Red Stripes, kick up your feet and grab those island vibes.

Drinking beer based on pantone color.

Beer drinkers and design geeks unite! Graphic artist, who very Prince-like goes by just the name Txaber, has invented a new system of ordering beer. Not only colorful but pretty clever to know what your beer will look like before throwing back a few.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

Nike and Apple should just take my credit card. The latest victim is this white/grey Nike Free 4.0 Flyknits. While I can easily blame Taj for being the Nike hype machine, I gotta say, the super clean UX and free shipping made it a quick decision.

When’s the last time you used a ruler?

I can’t remember the last time I needed a ruler but if I woke up tomorrow as a graphic designer, architect or teacher, these would be the shit. Made from beech wood and available in two collections of three each. Yeah for metrics!


Pen geeks take note.

I’m not sure when it began, but I fucking love a good pen. My latest victim is this matte black zero gravity space pen. Some people spend their hard earned loot on comics, sports or cars. For me, a good pen is right up there with a good meal.
