Local homeboy rocker Jack White may have settled elsewhere, but when he opened his second record store, he chose to put it in Detroit. Beyond the cool record selection and merch to peruse, there’s also a record booth that allows you to make a 2-minute long, 6-inch phonograph disc, that shoots out to you right when you’re done recording. If you write songs like the Misfits, that might be enough time for you, but some people use it as an audio postcard, or just as an excuse to hear the sound of their voice or instrument.
Aura Aura does some magic. “Through a double exposure process of capturing your bio-magnetic, vibrational energy, we make the metaphysical visible, resulting in awe-inspiring, one-of-a-kind portraits,” as their website reports. What this means is that you get a photo of yourself surrounded by your aura, or energy field. Check out the #humanatmosphere hashtags on Instagram to see what to expect.
