Booooooom asks Monstrum

Future of the City

“How can we provide opportunities for kids to make real-life discoveries on their own instead of Googling and Youtubing everything?”

This is the question I posed recently to @smarturbanstage, an online project in which people question the quality of life in their own cities around the world. They found a really cool answer to my question in the form of Monstrum, playground builders from Copenhagen. You can read the article here.

The Juice Truck (Secret)

Booooooom Poketo wallet giveaway with The Juice Truck
Heads up Vancouver, I have given the last of our Booooooom x Poketo wallets to my buddy Zach at The Juice Truck (Abbot St + Water St). Any juice or smoothie purchase gets you a FREE wallet ($20 value) but you have to ask for it, it’s not advertised anywhere!

The amount of wallets left may last a week or so? (just a guess.)

PS – Zach says they are open 11:30AM – 5:00PM everyday.

The real location of The Simpsons’ Springfield revealed!

Matt Groening Reveals the Real Location of The Simpsons’ Springfield

After 25 years of secrecy, The Simpsons creator Matt Groening has revealed to Smithsonian Magazine that the show’s fictional town of Springfield was actually based in… wait for it… Oregon!
