Find Boombotix at REI now and get PAID to shop

REI concept store

This week we are proud to announce that you can find Boombotix products in a number of REI retailers throughout the nation.  For our brand, this is a great step to finally break into key nationwide retail with the Boombot line.  REI will typically test out a line in these twenty four select stores to gauge what kind of reaction they are getting.  With the thousands of products carried at REI, it can often be hard to build awareness for the product.  You will likely find the Boombots in a limited number of colors near or in the headphones/speakers section of the store.

In any case, we are really excited for the opportunity to launch with one of the nation’s premier outdoor retailers.  We are able to reach communities that we previously didn’t have access to.  Customers also get to benefit from all of the various programs that come along with being an REI member including discounts and a hassle free return policy.  All things that really align well with the Boombotix exploratory value set.

We hope that as our customer, you can benefit from the increased availability of our product.  For a list of shops you can find our product, see below.  Don’t be afraid to haggle the staff to bring more colors in for the holidays.  A lot of staff may not even know what a Boombot is, so anything you can do to help fill them in on the world of Boombotix would be much appreciated!  For hours and store details, check out REI’s store locator.

Setting Up Surround Sound on a Computer

If you’re like me you like to watch movies and play video games on your computer at home and not just in your living room. We all know the best way to play some of these games is in the solitude of your Mancave late at night secluded from prying and often judgmental eyes.

Here’s a little known fun fact to help increase your audio enjoyment – You can easily set up a realistic surround sound speaker system with very little hassle using your computer, the exact same way you would with a television. You read that right! That’s why I’m going to break it down for you so you’ll know how to do this from now on. Then whenever you feel like watching a movie the way the director intended you to, or playing a first person shooter with the full effect of hearing shots going off behind you, you’ll be able to hook up optimal audio performance on a moment’s notice.

Recommendation for all the hipsters suddenly into camping

Roughing it outdoors is the thing to do lately, and there’s one thing everyone could bring along that would make the whole experience even more enjoyable

Hipsters camping

It can be hard work being a hipster. You have to wear glasses made extra heavy by their ridiculously thick frames, even though you have 20/20 vision.

Hipster glasses

You have to carry a thesaurus around so that you can use words that no one’s ever heard of, which makes you sound educated and allows you to also be dismissive when talking to others.

Hipster vocabulary

Then there’s the camping. Oh the camping! I mean, it’s not like that plaid shirt you wear every day was made for warmth – it’s a lifestyle! And the skinny jeans – they really can’t be worn during any sort of “activity” where they might be stretched out. Then there’s the whole beard issue: how exactly are you going to keep that I-don’t-shave-because-I don’t-care-to look going if you can’t at least trim your neck and sideburns?

Hipster beard

Yes, camping can be downright hard, but there is one thing that can make the whole thing a lot more enjoyable for you:

Occupy WHAT

Occupy Wall Street
September 17, 2011 – present


via Alex Mallis on Vimeo

Occupy what? Who doesn’t know about Occupy Wall Street? It is the growing occupation movement happening on Wall Street and around the world. It began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District. The movement has spread to all over the United States and cities around the world. The video above was filmed by Alex Mallis and Lily Henderson. It gives us an inside look of OWS. Although the protesters are from different states different countries, they all have the one same dream. “OWS is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations.” (OccupyWallSt.org)

So what else is in OSW? Actually it’s interesting to see what people’re wearing in OSW. Liberty Square probably is a “fashion landmark” recently. You might find all kind of styles there, even more than the runway. Forget about those brand names and trends, they dress as who they really are. They speak up their minds and fight for their rights. Check out Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street below and get more ideas.
