What's kraken? An epic Valentine's Day giveaway, that's what!

Boredwalk What's Kraken Sea Monster Shirt

Happy (belated) Valentine's Day! We hope you spent the "holiday" doing something fun, whether paired up, in a group, or flying solo. Meredith and I spent it huddled under a blanket and a pile of cats while noisily slurping soup in a futile attempt to stay warm. You know — the stuff of romance!

This week we have a short & sweet podcast episode that is nevertheless PACKED with goodies! We share not one but TWO customer reviews, exhibit a surprising amount of sympathy — for us — regarding Jeff Bezos's dick pic woes (even though we still kinda sorta hope he comes down with a raging case of scabies), tease some new products we have in the works, tease next week's interview with a very cool musician whose work we're sure you'll love, discuss the commercial viability of a business dedicated to putting out shark fires (yes, you read that correctly), and I briefly rave about Marble Olympics before Meredith goes on an extended rant about people who are getting her goat this week. We also briefly discuss what it really means to be an introvert and how it's not actually a synonym for being shy. If that sounds like a lot of ground to cover in less than 27 minutes...well, that's because it is. Enjoy!

Some quick housekeeping notes:

How Sweet It Is Valentine's Day Giveaway


Yes, we're co-sponsoring a giveaway! Now through February 22nd you — and your friends! — can enter to win an amazing prize package from us and our partners! You can get all the details here, but entering is a breeze, and the prizes are rad. They include:

• $100 gift card from Boredwalk (I'd link to it, but you know...you're already here.)

• $100 gift card from The Bro Basket

• $100 gift card from Metal Marvels

• A Snarky Tea Bouquet and rad It's Motherf**king Tea Time mug from Snarky Tea

 In addition to the sweet sea monster shirt shown above we've also added a new state to our series of vintage tourism inspired designs — Rhode Island, come on down! I can't take all the credit for this one, though — this represents Boredwalk team member Josh B.'s first published Boredwalk design! Way to go, Josh!

And don't fret, denizens of the Granite, Constitution, and Bay states — New Hampshire is done and just waiting to be published, and Connecticut and Massachusetts will be up by the end of this month to round out the rest of New England. Until then I guess you'll just have to cry yourselves to sleep next to your Lombardi and Commissioner's trophies. This Orioles fan's heart bleeds for you...

And ICYMI, be sure to check out last week's other tourism-inspired design if your wanderlust leads you to...darker...environs...

Almost-finally, we've added a new payment option to our checkout page! We've recently partnered with QuadPay. What the heck is QuadPay, you may ask?

Put simply, it's an interest-free way to break up larger purchases into more manageable chunks. So if you can't decide on just ONE Boredwalk item and your order total is more than $35, QuadPay will allow you to break your total up into four equal installments paid out over a six-week period instead of all at once. It's pretty sweet!

Whew! That was a lot of info. Sorry to have rambled. Here's the TL;DR:

New designs — admire them!

New podcast — listen & laugh!

Giveaway — enter to win over $400 worth of rad stuff!

New payment option — don't break the bank all at once!

Finally-finally, don't forget to save 15% on orders of $75 or more when you use the code LOVE15 at checkout. You're OUR sweetheart, and you deserve some savings!

We'll be back next week with more designs, another podcast ep, and (hopefully) less rambling! Until then...

Peace, love, and chocolate,
