  •   timatosauce @thechloeroth don't sweat it. It's not the length of your roller that counts, it's how thickly you apply the second coat. 1mon
  •   thechloeroth @timatosauce Tim I have no idea what that means but I'm pretty sure roller length counts for a lot 1mon
  •   timatosauce @thechloeroth i'm just sayin, it's not the size of the brush, it's how you tickle the bristles. 1mon

tylerturtle “Our original apartment was actually in storefront, which was not necessarily legal. Someone told us that we should make the storefront look like a shop. We put little displays up in the windows, but how were we going to make it look like a shop that isn’t open? I found a ‘Sorry We’re Closed’ sign, took India ink and painted over the C and the D. Then I rearranged the E to make a T. We hung it in the door and it said ‘Sorry We’re Lost.’ We were just three dudes that arrived in SF not knowing anyone. No connections, no job offers. We were like, ‘Are we gonna stay here or not?’ And ‘Sorry We're Lost’ was just that. Now that Mixed Nuts is a real shop, it’s always posted because it was how it all began, being lost on purpose.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “I like to say that my shops are a curated assortment of precious junk. I am always hunting for the stuff that is the coolest you can find. When I see my objects, I picture them in a little white wall gallery on a little pedestal by themselves, singing. I studied design and I’m very connected to aesthetics and thought process of design. Certain things were designed once and it was right. A lot of time those designs are mimicked and replicated over time. There is an integrity that the original objects hold and those imitations don’t have the same value or quality. When people redesign these objects, they pull from something that they can’t get and I want to sell the stuff you can’t get.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “One of the best aspects of biking through the city is being able to scavenge on the go. In my business I’m looking for things and that’s sort of always in the background of my mind. It doesnt feel like work but I'm always searching for something and I never know what its gonna be. On the bike, you’re able to take those random streets and unexpected turns. I end up finding all types of stuff that maybe got put out 5 minutes ago. You’ll find that old stuff on the street that was once, and still is charming. You can put it in your pocket and keep riding.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “When I moved in San Francisco, I had a bicycle and a bag. Those were my belongings. I came with two friends who had just ridden their bikes across the country. I remember the first day we arrived, we were looking for apartments and we did it all by bike. We rode out to the Dogpatch, the Mission, Cole Valley and all the way out to the Richmond and ate Vietnamese sandwiches. Then we rode to the ocean and I was sold. From then on my bike was my primary means of transportation to find food, an apartment, find things to get myself situated and settled in the city.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “I like to think of my style as more of a uniform. It’s sort of like Where’s Waldo or Inspector Gadget; its your outfit. I’m very orderly and organized with my things. I pretty much have my Vans, my HUF, and my Levi’s. I don’t really got too far away from that. It’s a utilitarian and pretty classic style. If you look at a guy in an old black and white photo from the 50’s, he’s wearing a chambray shirt and his dungarees. That’s sort of the guy I want to be as an old man and I don’t want to have to change my style from now till then.” -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “I like to start my commute with a trip to the ocean. On good days and on bad days, either way I just like to be there and pay homage to it because it’s sort of a relief. There is something about having an ocean in a city that I think is important. Having that boundary is substantial. It’s definitely not a shortcut for me, but it’s a starting point. It’s the beginning and the end of San Francisco." -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “There are so many great secrets in Golden Gate Park. The park is a really long rectangle. If you go east, you end up at the end. If you go west you end up at the end. But inside the park there are so many nooks and crannies, twists and turns. Those webs are all connected, so once you decide ‘I'm gonna go down this little cut today,’ you find out that you're in a whole nother section of the park that you've never been to. I love that stuff because it’s out of your hands. Taking that unexpected turn is something you have no control over, but you are controlling the situation." -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “Living in the western part of San Francisco, my favorite shortcut is through Golden Gate Park. You can pop in and all of the sudden you’re cruising through a serene atmosphere. I think it’s a shortcut because you're not having to think about traffic and people on the street that can cause danger. So it’s a mental shortcut, even though it’s the same distance." -@mixednutssf

tylerturtle “I commute because I'm an explorer in some sense. The bike is the vessel you can explore on very easily. I like the feeling of being a tourist, that sort of unknown. I feel like you can gain all that because you choose your own adventure on a bicycle. If you want to go left, you can go left. If you want to go right you can do that. You're not moving at a speed that you're gonna get lost, so you can meander and that I really enjoy. The feeling of the unknown.” - @mixednutssf -

tylerturtle Meet Brandon Clark, one of the owners of my favorite vintage shop in San Francisco, @mixednutssf. This week, follow along as I document Brandon’s ride as part of the @vsco and @levis commuter collaboration. “Being a visual person, I’m drawn to the aesthetics you get while riding a bike. When I’m on my bike, everything is fresh. It’s a sensory experience visually, audibly and the actual motion is super stimulating. Your eyes are open and the things you’re seeing are new to that moment every time.
When you change your transport from biking to being jammed in a car or whatever else, there is a sensory deprivation that happens. Your body isn’t involved, your ears and eyes aren't as involved. You lose your awareness, part of your senses aren't tapped into. It’s not about the things I’d miss if I weren’t on my bike, it’s what I gain while on my bike.” - @mixednutssf
