The Strokes have always been on our Pandora playlist, but this is one time where we’re thinking the cover version could be better than the original. Reptilia on banjo, mandolin and violin. Brilliant.

Moxy Creative’s prints feature just the clothes and accessories associated with films. We love the Top Gun poster, but we’re disappointed that Marty McFly’s vest and kicks isn’t on the list.
We’re impressed with Dan Blank’s music video for the vintage dance troupe, The Satin Dollz, which was produced for less than $2000 and filmed on a Canon 7D DSLR. And with the ladies.
We like the smooth looks of the rugged limited edition Scout work boot from Viberg, which features heavyweight hemp, oiled/roughed up leather and PU sole. (Thanks Kevin!)
