Forever November Until December: Visivo Fall/Winter Mixtape

We're proud to announce that our newest mixtape is now available to stream and download! Mixed by John Madden Sex Tape, this mixtape features some colder song selections that we've been listening to a lot this fall, and either remind us of the cold or just plain sound like they're cold. There's new indie, classic indie, some 80s jams, dancey stuff, and even some Beatles in there. I'm really psyched to be able to meld this group of songs together. Check out the set list below and have a listen, it's our best one yet.

Pantone Hotel

I thought Pantone was being pretty awesome when they started making notepads and mugs, but a hotel? Totally stepping it up quite a few notches. Located in Brussels, hotel fares are €149 a night, or €99 a night for the "Romantic Escape" package.

Recently Purchased: People Who Deserve It (Socially Responsible Reasons To Punch Someone In The Face)

Just received this book in the mail this morning and it's been keeping me occupied all day. Written by copywriters Casey Rand and Tim Gordon, the book is full of illustrations and short blurbs about people who deserve to get punched in the face. Such as: "Impatient Subway Boarder". "Slow-Ass ATM User", "Faulty Coffee Lid", "Cries At Anything Girl", "Incessant Facebook Status Updater" and more. Personal favorite of mine is "Digital Camera Viewer Stealer", aka the guy who you show one picture to on your camera and then they wind up going through your whole life and never give the camera back. Good stuff. Oder the book here, and peep their blog.

NY Art Book Fair Is Back

"Printed Matter presents the fifth annual NY Art Book Fair, November 5–7 at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens. Free and open to the public, the Fair hosts over 200 international presses, booksellers, antiquarian dealers, artists and publishers from twenty countries, offering the best in contemporary art book publishing."

Well, I know what I'm doing this weekend. Last year I went back to PS1 a few times to take it all in. So much cool and inspiring stuff to look at. It would be cool to have a booth there one year. Let's make more stuff!
