Vancouver Event: SPORTS DAY


Next Saturday is our SPORTS DAY event at China Creek Park! We’re teaming up with our friends at lululemon lab, Juice Truck, Tight Club, Culver City Salads, and Distrikt Movement to put on a really fun summer event!

Each of us is organizing a classic sports day game, and Booooooom’s game is gonna be a special version of Kickball! So get a friend, or two, or a whole bunch to sign up for a team. It doesn’t actually matter what neighbourhood you’re from as we’ve realised there are lots of people from other areas (shoutout to Richmond) who want to play!

With your ticket you get: a salad, a juice, 2 beers, and compete in all the games! Come play Kickball and hang out!


Sign up for the event here: SPORTS DAY!!!

A Crow Rides a Bald Eagle: Hilarious Tattoo Becomes Reality


I love Dan Climan’s tattoo work and this crow riding a bald eagle is one of my favourites (I actually saved this image to my computer). I couldn’t believe my eyes today when I saw this Colossal post, featuring photos by photographer Phoo Chan of a crow riding a bald eagle in real life! I love the Internet.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: July


Here’s this month’s submission post, thanks for all the submissions to the June Submissions post. This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here during the month of July. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
