Goodies: August 4, 2015

Good morning, everyone! Big news this week is I’m moving in less than 2 weeks. My wife and I finally found a good place, and after years of commuting over an hour to get to work, my new commute will be less than 5 minutes. The only downside I can see is that my podcast-listening time is about to shrink dramatically. I guess I can deal…

This week’s video is Kurt Vile’s new single, Pretty Pimpin. I’ve shared this a couple times already on Twitter, but I had to share it one more time because I can not stop listening to this song. Kurt Vile has been on a roll for years, and this single is just another awesome step along the way.

Swag of the Week

The MoKo Soft Silicone Apple Watch Replacement Sport Band it too good of a deal to be true, but it just may be real. This band is a rip off of Apple’s Sport Band, but at $10 it’s hard to resist trying it out. Mine is in the mail on the recommendation of WatchAware. I have the blue one coming in the next couple days and will definitely be sharing my thoughts.
