I happened to stumble across a painting by the artist Wary Meyers. His art is very dream like and whimsical. I saw a print of his (krakatoa) on canvas for sale at Urabn Outfitters and as soon as I got home I had to google his name. Here is a few of my favorite paintings of his. Please enjoy! :]

My good friends Airica and Marc are opening up a store thats in a really awesome spot. It's a place where Marc will be able to display and sell his art work and customized kicks. But don't you worry the store will have more than just art and sneakers.
Here is the world's first sneak peek of the shop. Airica and Marc will be busting their ass's trying to get it ready for Monday. I just wish I was there to lend a helping hand.

Well, although we’ve never mentioned them once, we’ve been outed by a commenter for preferring the likes of groups like Of Montreal better than mindless crotch rock like Alter Bridge. We suppose they’re correct.
In that case, may we recommend MGMT, who are currently touring with Of Montreal.
MGMT would never recycle big pop rock hooks for the sake of selling albums. Oh no siree. In fact, the duo’s much-anticipated first full-length album, Oracular Spectacular, frolics through fields of originality — bursting with buttery dewdrop melodies and sunbaked choruses.
One spring night after drinking like five or six red alize’s and grey goose, which James so rightly named “preppy passion,” my man Ruddy Rock put me on to someone, who in his mind was “a star.” This someone turned out to be the Gray Kid. I soon found out what all the hype was about, not only was he a real person (far from a Prima Donna) but when I heard his four song CD sampler I was impressed (and I don’t get impressed that easily mind you.) The music was a perfect mixture of electronica, hip hop, rock, soul, & “pop.” Songs like “Lonely love,” “$ Clip” and “Shine” didn’t sound like anything I was hearing at the moment, they felt honest, which was refreshing to me. In his live show he sang the falsetto part from the record and it SOUNDED LIKE THE RECORD, not too many R&B singers sound like their record on stage, so I had to give him props. Fresh from hosting the PLUG independent music awards and rocking the French Alps I was able to ask the young man a few questions; you might find his answers interesting.
How would you describe what you do?
Check out his website, www.graykid.com. If you’re in NYC or if he’s in your town check out the live show, the last one I went to had drunk girls wrestling in the crowd, ya dig?
Duplomacy plays with a rare calm and slow beauty that I have not heard for a long time…(they) play off of each other in an almost orchestral way. The song layering and transitions are reminiscent of the Beatles…While sounding very different, Duplomacy’s songs do have a similar dreamlike introspective beauty to some of REM’s earliest work. And their use of minor keys always gets me.
Personally, I think they sound like Death Cab For Cutie minus the "wussiness", mix in a little Pavement, add a bit of Wolf Parade and Dinosaur Jr, and there you go. Highly recommended for fans of bands afore mentioned and: Low, Band of Horses, Xiu Xiu, Tapes ‘n Tapes, Head of Femur, Headphones, Kid Dakota, Happy Apple, etc...
