I'm sure you know by now, but my song 5:19 was written about a TIME, not a DATE. However, I'm a man who appreciates holidays, and traditions are always fun - so we've gone ahead and made a 519 DAY! We've been celebrating May 19th over the last few years in various ways, and this year is no different. SOO, here's a little rundown of what we've got cookin THIS year.Read More
5-19 IS UPON US!
So, the song, 5:19 was REALLY written about a TIME, not a DATE, but who's keeping track, anyway? For the uninitiated, over the last few years we have been celebrating May 19th in various different ways, and this year is no different. SOO, here's a little rundown of what we've got cookin!
In anticipation of #519Day we're doing a LIMITED run of these SUPER RAD 5:19 HOODIES! Only 1 week to order, and you'll get it in time for the BIG DAY! Get 'em while you can!Read More
Well. We were all waiting, weren't we? Yes. We were. Because one round wasn't enough, and because we missed y'all, gosh darn it. Also, because Obama said we have to. We (Dave and Matt, of course) are SO excited about getting out and seeing a million* faces, and rocking them all. Or is it seeing a million vases and rocking the mall. Let's digress.
SO - that said, we will be out doing round two of the Two Birds, One Stone Tour. Should be a blast!! Below are the dates.** We would love to see any and all of you out there! As Buckwheat so eloquently said - "been a nong time since dem days!"
Amen, Buckwheat. Amen.
-Matt & Dave
*might be less than a million, but only slightly

Y'all- I'm SO STOKED to finally be able to let you know about a project I've been working on for the last few months called The Snow Globe Shop! Without fail, year after year I am coming up empty trying to find a meaningful, unique gift to give to the people I care the most about. There's something about giving a gift with a story that is more fun to give, you know? So I decided to do something about it, collaborating with some of my favorite brands like fashionABLE, Consider The Wldflwrs, Great Bear Wax Co and more to develop 5 gifts this holiday that will be a blast to watch your favorite people open (or just plain enjoy for yourself!)
A wallet, a beanie, a candle, a bracelet (bangle, cuff, or whatever you want to call it...), and a mug. Something for everyone. Shop the entire linup here: TheSnowGlobeShop.com
