My good friend Matt just informed me he independently released his first digital download album under the pseudonym “Dryer Buzzer.” I haven’t even listened to the whole thing yet but I know it HAS to be dope because he has been feeding me beats for years. Check out his myspace page to download the album and don’t forget to donate some money to his cause. Truly DIY, truly dope! Congrats homie, I hope to hear more in the future.

What’s Slydial? It’s a pretty cool free phone service that let’s you go straight to someone’s voicemail without having to actually call them. Why would you want to do this? To avoid an awkward conversation, to save time, or to call someone you know who is in a meeting or can’t pick up. My favorite possible scenario is that I get a lot of calls from numbers I don’t recognize that don’t leave me a voicemail. With this you can slydial the number and wait to hear the voicemail. The process is simple too. You just dial their phone number, follow a prompt, enter the number you want to slydial, then you will hear their voicemail. Pretty cool service that may come in handy from time to time.

I just found the perfect mini bar that has that mid-century feel but is highly affordable. The Acacia Mini-Bar at CB2 not only looks good it is great for stashing your spirits and barware. The finish is beautiful and the price is even sexier at only $400.
Makr creates some really unique styles of wallets made from leather and fabric. They are all made in limited quantities and each sport a unique pattern or texture or image. Great as a gift or to sport on your own as they are priced at $100 or less. Check more out here.

This mix is sure to keep your party hoppin.’ Has the latest and greatest ubiquitous indi electro the kids are so hip to these days. Throw it on and don’t forget to sport your skinny jeans, flourescent kicks, and venetian blind sunglasses. You may or may not need an asymmetrical haircut too. That I haven’t decided. ENJOY!

Nothing says “The Future” like shoes designed in the late 1980s. Nike finally answered our prayers, and 3 year old petition we all signed, by releasing the Hyperdunks from Back to the Future 2. Only they didn’t really release them really (they aren’t exactly the same), they limited them to 350 and they sold out instantly of course. Now fanboys will have to pay a cool $2K on ebay for them. Kinda messed up but that is the nature of the sneaker collecting beast. Die hard heads with little to no life other than collecting waited in line for up to 24 hours to see if they could get their hands on a pair. Kobe Bryant rolled up in a Delorean and made a cameo at the Main Street location of Undefeated to sign 10 pairs. If they actually become somewhat attainable I’ll try to cop a pair. But that is highly unlikely I am sure of it.

Bran just keeps the hits coming. Now he’s gone and updated his site with all the new great projects including his contribution to our “Drive Less“ series. We’ll get an official site up soon for that too. I really like Bran’s addition to our series which includes other designers I invited. In the meantime, go look at all of Bran’s funtastic work.
