by Seth Rogen
As quirky as it is endearing, Yearbook is laugh-out-loud funny. In his own words: “I talk about my grandparents, doing stand-up comedy as a teenager, bar mitzvahs, and Jewish summer camp, and tell way more stories about doing drugs than my mother would like. I also talk about some of my adventures in Los Angeles, and surely say things about other famous people that will create a wildly awkward conversation for me at a party one day.” Nothing is better during the holiday than getting lost in a new book.

Benevento: Limited Edition 180 Gram Bubblegum Pink Vinyl
Marco Benevento’s eight studio album, simply titled, Benevento, is 40 minutes of small-batch psychedelia bubbled up from his home studio in the Catskill Mountains. Titled as a nod to Paul McCartney’s first solo album, the record is a similarly loose, low-key affair. Like Macca’s eponymous release, Benevento is a solo work, where song sketches and sunrise jams share space with more constructed tracks. Deeply indebted to the West African psychedelia of artists such as Kiki Gyan, Frances Bebey and William Onyeabor, the songs are rhythmic and hallucinatory, built into thick mosaics of sound. Each track features Benevento exploring the varied keyboard sounds that have earned him a reputation as a modern day keyboard visionary. For the vinyl collector on your list.

We all have adventurers on our gift giving list and finding that once-in-a-lifetime present can often prove elusive—much like making contact with UFOs and aliens. But artist Dana Wyse has uncovered a guaranteed route to making those shy aliens land by “chemically changing your carbon vibration.” Makes logical sense to us!

We can all use a little more mindfulness in our modern lives, so Komuso Design looked to the wisdom of the past and were inspired by the Komuso monks of 17th century Japan who used a flute called a shakuhachi to “blow zen” and find stillness.
