Earlier this year, I came across a company called Firsthand Supply Co out of Massachusetts. I immediately became very interested in their all natural, water based pomade. So I ordered one and began doing my research. As soon as I opened the container, the aroma was overwhelmingly pleasing to my olfactory epithelium. Next, I scooped out a small amount into my hands and rubbed it together through my fingers. The texture was very smooth with just the right amount of thickness. Now, I’m not a pompadour guy, so I’m not looking for shine. This pomade is the perfect matte finish,...

drums, leather goods, tour, wallet -

Most experienced drummers probably know this trick, but if you’re a beginner then it may be a helpful tip for you. If you’re ever struggling to get your snare drum to sound good, and you’ve tried everything else, place your wallet on top of the snare. More often than not, this will solve your problem.

You will see all forms of life on the subway and perhaps live to tell about it. Driving in the city is just a plain ole no no. Cabs are a common way to get around, but they can get a little pricey. So, that just leaves the underground. And believe me, it’s gonna be dirty. At the right time, it’s gonna be creepy. But you have to experience it to truly experience the...

interviews, sunglasses -

When I first came across Legacy Eyewear, I wasn’t sure what to think of wooden sunglasses. The designs looked cool, but wooden, really? So I decided to investigate. I contacted you through social media and we soon chatted. I ended up ordering a pair to see if they really were as good as advertised. It didn’t take long for me to realize that they were even better than advertised. These sunglasses are super lightweight and comfortable, flexible, durable - you name it. Most every pair of sunglasses I had ever owned were either too tight on my head or bothered...
