Hey Internet friends, how’s it going? Here’s the second video production from our recent-ish Imprint Culture Lab conference, held in Long Beach on 5/26. Starring the likes of Julia Huang, John Jay, Jeff Staple, and Martin Wong, it was shot by the talented Ben Clark. Good stuff – it really nicely captures some of the interesting ideas put forth during the event. [Watch Video]

Burger Week

If you live in or around LA and you like burgers (so, roughly 10 million people, give or take) then you definitely want to check out my friend Fred’s (interviewed) family’s restaurant The Oinkster this week. They invented Burger Week, whereby they offer a very limited edition one-day-only Oinkster version of another famous burger each and every weekday. If you are up to the challenge, you go every day and you get epic rewards at the end. Don’t sleep, burger lovers. Eat first, then food coma. #burgerlords ALSO: Forgot to mention all the art is by Benjie!
