Ultimate Ears UE Boom Speaker Giveaway

UE Boom Speaker Giveaway

Ultimate Ears, a brand of Logitech, have created a pretty spectacular Bluetooth speaker called the UE Boom. I’m not just posting about this because its name happens to be Boom, I was sent one of them to test out and it’s become my go-to wireless speaker.

It’s loud as hell, and actually pretty heavy for its size, but that’s probably why the low end sounds pretty good on it. Anyways, I wouldn’t be giving one away to you unless it was a quality product. So who wants it?

*Edit – I actually have five(5) speakers to give away! So I’m extending the giveaway until end of day Monday.

Brandon Bird’s “Astonishing World of Art” Book Giveaway

Brandon Bird's Astonishing World of Art Book Giveaway

This week’s giveaway is a copy of pop artist Brandon Bird’s “Astonishing World of Art” activity book. Bird was one of the first artists I ever posted about on this site, way back in 2008 (remember Seinfeld wielding the nunchucks?), and he’s remained a personal favourite.

The artist is known for putting celebrities into the most bizarre situations, his painting “Nobody Wants To Play Sega With Harrison Ford” is one of my favourites.

If you’d like to snag this book, leave a comment below with a request for a celebrity in a bizarre situation. I’ve posted a bunch of images below to inspire your suggestions, there’s a video too!

Northern Sun Jacket Giveaway

Northern Sun Jacket Giveaway

I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is summer is nearly gone, it’s painful to even say it. But the good news is I’ve got a giveaway from my friends at Northern Sun that’s perfect for the fall season.

First of all I’ve gotta give credit to my friends, Jennilee Marigomen (photographer) and Redia Soltis (stylist), who put these beautiful images together. The video below was shot by Peter Hadfield.

I’ve got a men’s Aput Jacket and a women’s Aga Jacket to give away! Both are water resistant and premium down filled, and as promised this one’s open to everyone. If you’d like to snag either jacket, leave a comment below describing the first adventure you’ll go on.

We’ll pick two winners September 13th.

Urbanears RePlattan Headphones + Slussen Adapter Giveaway!

Urbanears RePlatten Headphones + Slussen Adapter Giveaway!

Urbanears hooked me up with a pair of their newly launched RePlattan series of headphones. These headphones are all made of unused parts from previous seasons instead of letting them go to waste!

The coolest part is they’ve built in a personal ID and GPS coordinates that cover 5 square meters of rainforest. As soon as you purchase a pair of headphones that specific area of rainforest is protected.

They estimate that 500 ants, 10 flowers, 5 spiders and 2 butterflies live in each of those little squares, maybe even a bird, or a tree, or a frog, or a tree frog, or even a bird frog (they never said this).

I also got a little adapter called a Slussen, which lets you dj from your iPhone (the video below explains it better).

So now I get to giveaway one of each to one of you as well! Leave a comment below with the first song you’d listen to. I’ll pick a winner next Friday, have a great weekend.

Switcheroo Book and Interview with photographer Hana Pesut

My friend Hana rules! She’s the one in the middle, then on the left, then on the right. She’s the one I dedicated the first two Booooooom mixes to (here and here).

She spent the last couple years traveling the world, shooting “switcheroos”, portraits of people swapping clothes. After she’d shot more than 200 of them, and had them appear on every blog imaginable, she decided to put together a book.

Well, she’s finally released her “Switcheroo Book”, and the best news for you guys is that I have a copy to give away! I’ve been sent hundreds of books since I started this site and I can honestly say this is one of my absolute favourites. She spared no expense producing this thing, and the final product is gorgeous.

If you’d like to snag the book, take a couple minutes to read my short interview with her below, and then leave her am encouraging message in the comments! I’ll pick a winner in two weeks (July 12th). This is open to everyone!

Read the Interview below!
