Design of the Week: Michigan vs. Ohio, The Rivalry Continues

The craft beer movement has hit almost every town across America by now. We here at Two Dollar Radio draw a lot of inspiration from kick-ass label artwork. Because this is America and we make everything a competition, I thought we could compare craft beer bottles/cans from Ohio and Michigan. We all get along, don't we?

All-Female Bike Groups

“Ovaries so big we don’t need balls” is the motto of Ovarian Psycos, an all-women troop of cyclists reclaiming the streets of LA. The use of bikes stems from the feeling of being “free of all the bullshit that has us locked into this matrix of consumption, free of obstacles that get in the way of our ability to navigate.”

New Muzak

Music is a big influence to us here at Two Dollar Radio. There's usually always music playing in Corporate Headquarters. So it should come as no surprise that a couple of us are musical. Here's a couple new tracks for you to bop your head to.

Design of the Week—Ricardo Cavolo is taking over the world

Since publishing The Incantations of Daniel Johnston, we've been stumbling into Ricardo Cavolo's illustrations everywhere it seems. From skateboards to album covers to surfboards. And that's even excluding the murals for Urban Outfitters, the Montreal Airport, and Fox Sports Mexico.

New Tattoo Club Members: Brynn and Kit!

It's pretty cool that the Tattoo Club is becoming a thing that friends do together. First, there was Bryan and Cassandra in Arkansas, who with three buddies got Two Dollar Radio tattoos. Now, Brynn and Kit, two friends from the far north: Toledo, Ohio!
