Our October mixtape

We’re back at it with some tracks old, some tracks new, and not going to hide the fact that we cannot have a hate-filled man in the Oval Office (seriously, please vote). Enjoy some tunes from Dornik, Beach Slang, Tycho, Chris Staples and more.

Better Looking Records. Just because it seemed like a good idea.

Way back in 1999, we partnered up with Paul Fischer to start Better Looking Records because it seemed like a good idea. We don’t put as many records as we used to, and certainly don’t make bank from it, but we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. We’re still fond of the BLR logo, so we decided to throw up some products on Society6, again, just because it seems like a good idea. Throw on the shirt when you’re feeling ridiculously good-looking, bring the tote when you go record shopping, and lay your head on the pillow as you listen to some tunes. All 15% off and free shipping today.

Noon Pacific is anything but basic

I’m partial to our monthly mixtapes, but give some cred to what Clark Dinnison and Noon Pacific are doing out of a shack in Newport Beach. Sign up for their list and you’ll get 10 new jams delivered to your inbox every Monday, plus a library of mixtapes to browse on their site. If that’s not enough for ya, the goods in their shop are whatever the next incarnation of on fleek is.

Astronaut Dinosaur

In a letter posted to CNN yesterday, President Obama set the lofty goal of sending humans to Mars (and bringing them back safely) by the 2030s. I’m grateful for that, a) because it’s badass ambitious in a time where many people just make apps AND b) it reminded me of these rad paintings by Astronaut Dinosaur, aka Scott Listfield.



Find plenty more to browse and buy on Society6.
