A Shirt

We <3 u Frank Ocean.

The statement is important, but if you’re curious about the shirt details, it’s available on Green Box Shop for $18.99. They’re an independent t-shirt maker and upon visiting the website, you’ll find that this isn’t the only statement they’re highlighting on their tees. Find your other favorite social justice pieces with them!

Frank wore this tee last night during his Panorama Festival performance.

Buster’s Mal Heart

Since we have a serious crush on Rami Malek, we’ll pretty much watch anything he’s in. I’m actually very excited about this career and where he’s headed. Upon watching the trailer, it’s easy to get stuck in that thought that he’s being pigeon-holed into the same character he is in Mr. Robot, but the movie trailer still has me very curious. I’m looking forward to seeing his transformation as what we believe to be as him being a normal family man turned into fugitive.

Malek as a hard-working family man named Jonah who seems burned out by his life. During one of his shifts as a nighttime hotel concierge, he meets a conspiracy theorist named Brown (played by DJ Qualls). A series of clips showcases Jonah battling with his psyche as he evades the police by hiding out in remote areas. We eventually find him alone on a mountaintop, but the details leading up to the scene are vague. Watch the trailer above and catch Buster’s Mal Heart, written and directed by Sarah Adina Smith, in select theaters April 28.

Nike’s Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Mid in Dark Green

This is a very long name for a sneaker. When I saw these on Hypebeast today, I couldn’t take my eyes off of them! For one, we’ve been obsessed with our Oreo Flyknits since the day that we got them and we’d take them in every color and style if we could! We feel very drawn to the dark green though because you know…northwest, but also how good does this look against the leather? It’s the perfect combination of soft and delicate with something that’s a little bit more rough around the edges. We’ll take one pair of these, please! Now… to come up with $185.00.

Top Smartphone Apps of 2016

When Veronica and I grabbed lunch together the other day, we started to think about how much a difference four years can make. We graduated in 2012 and in 2016, so much in our lives have changed. I’m now living in California while she is in Seattle and hello! Married! However, in the larger scheme of things not only has our world changed – but the country’s and how we do things in our day to day lives. We were talking about the different tech companies in the Bay Area and all of a sudden we are both like, “How did we function without Uber in our lives?!” “What did we do while we were in college?” For one thing, I was still using a Blackberry! Those things are practically extinct now. It’s fitting that this report was published above about the top apps being used on smartphones. Google and Facebook continue to dominate as always.
