The Greenhouse effect

I’m happy to announce a limited edition Bot we’ve been working on since this morning over a bowl of cereal.  I would love to tell you what kind of cereal, but I totally don’t want us to get sued.  Let’s just call it ‘Raptain Runch’ and leave it at that.

How to paint a woodgrain effect

Learn to use acrylic paint to get a realistic wood sheen on any medium

A couple weeks ago, I finished this piece and took some photos out in the woods before taking it on the road.  One of the things I was excited about was sharing the painting methods of getting this woodgrain effect.  I did my best to document the entire process so that if you ever have those sneakers that you want to trick out or maybe another inanimate object that you want to turn to wood, YOU CAN.

In this tutorial, he uses an upsized custom fiberglass Boombot loudspeaker. If you like thumping powerful audio and art, then this piece gives you the best of the two. Art with function and enough OOMPF to throw your next raging party.

You can mess around with various styles of wood as well as using different color variations, but this will hopefully give you one way to go about getting a very realistic looking woodgrain. Hope you enjoy!

Dub Phizix and Skeptical feat Strategy – Marka – Exit Records

Bet you haven’t heard this before.  Found this gangster beat at 4:09am whilst mobbing through DnBRadio Podcast.  It caught my ear immediately with the extremely crisp beat and precise lyrical mayhem.  No whomp whomp here.  Just pure straight dub.  This led me to take a peep at the music video…. Not going to lie, it’s a little bit scary to watch by yourself, but see it at your own risk.  We highly recommended listening to this on a serious speaker system  or on high quality studio monitors to get the full effect.

Outsidelands + bicycles + Levi’s = fun.

Outside Lands is more than just a festival – it’s a lifestyle. This festy experience magnifies beyond the spicy guitar licks, booty shaking bass and stunning vocals, it’s meant to give you a taste of what San Francisco is in all of its glory. From recycled art, farmers markets, urban gardening and grubbing down with the local eateries, this experience wouldn’t be complete without our favorite mode of transportation – bicycles!

This year’s free bike valet will be provided courtesy of Levi’s, who will also be pimping your bike out with free tune-ups and bike washes as well! Levi’s recently released a very chill line of bicycle commuter wear (check out the line here) and they’re also hosting  “Golden Sprints” at the festival. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Golden Sprints, anyone who can ride a bike can participate. In a nutshell: you race on a stationary bike that are set up to gauge how far and fast you are, whoever goes the fastest for a certain amount of distance wins sweet prizes such as swag from Mission Bicycle Bompanybags from Mission Workshop, bikes from Globe and speakers from the best portable speaker company ever, yours truly.

DOPE RIGHT?! The races will be taking place in the Levi’s tent at Eco Lands this weekend so be sure to come and check it out! Spandex is highly encouraged.
