I really like the music of this band Deepakalypse. Its folksy, and kind of. I believe I heard once that they record all of their music with one microphone.


Souplove Press

SoupLove just got its first official review! Heidi Swanson was nice enough to write about the book, on her blog 101cookbooks. She tested one of the recipes and had a lot of nice things to say about the book. Check out the posting:

I went to a place called Outerlands for lunch yesterday in the Sunset neighborhood of sf. The food was GOOD, and im pretty sure organic, and the space itself was awesome. Almost the entire interior of the building is covered with salvaged wood, and even some drift wood found on Ocean Beach, just a few blocks away. eat at Outerlands.

If you like the surfing, or even if you dont yet, you'll probably like this blog. It belongs to Dane Reynolds. Hes a surfer, and hes good. I usually like the music he sets his videos to. Theres also some cool artsy designy stuff going on... not sure who's responsible, but its cool from time to time.



I realized that one reason I like summer is bc I have more time to decide what I want to do with my day. In the winter, by the time I get my act together and start to think about the possibilities of the day to come, its already getting dark, and I usually just decide to call it a day.


"Teeluxe supports independent publishing". This basically means that they sell zines, books, dvds, shirts, etc that just about anybody can put together and sell for however much they want. You find some really unique stuff on there, especially the zines. I just ordered a bunch, and am waiting for them to come in the mail from Australia. It seems like most of the stuff they sell is surf inspired, but not all of it.


square sunglasses

saw this guy on the street the other day and asked if i could take a picture of his sunglasses. he was cool about the whole thing, and turns out his mom actually bought them for him. must have a pretty cool mom.

Cool skate video

Watch this skate video by Quicksilver. Its not necessarily the skating itself that is amazing, but the way the video is made (I have no idea how they did it) that will blow your mind...
