    May Day is Lei Day, sonnn! 

    It’s May 1st. And in Hawaii, that only means one thing: May Day is Lei Day.

    Started in the late 1920s by local columnist and artist Donald Benson Blanding and Grace Tower Warren, the day commemorates Hawaiian Culture and the awesomeness of the floral bouquet that natively grows here.

    Donald Blanding is also credited with inventing the tradition of throwing your lei overboard as one is departing from Hawaii. The story goes that if you throw the lei overboard and it floats back to shore (which it almost always does), it meant that you were destined to return one day.

    So, whip out those flowers and go get lei’d… or lei someone else.

    Ummm, not like that.

    Anyway, make someone’s day by hooking them up with a string of dope looking flowers. Besides, it’ll probably get you off the hook from something in the near future. Like locking the keys in the car. Or forgetting to buy milk.

    Anyways, the atypicalLIVING fam wishes everyone a happy May Day… and if you see Lofa around, throw one around his neck.

    NEW! Flying Coffin “Stack” Hat available online 

    If you missed out on the ill Flying Coffin “Stack” fitted when it was available, well, now is your second chance.  The boys from the Coffin have put up a select handful of the hats in their online store.

    And, from the looks of it, they seem to have all sizes, from the small 7 to the Lofa sized 8 (if he fits it, of course).  But, it looks limited, so if you wanna get up on it, get up on it now.

    You can find the store via the Flying Coffin website -or- by clicking on this link.
