Skatebook – Lance Mountain Edition

Over the past several years (let’s just say the past seven), I’ve slowly put myself out of touch with the skateboarding industry. I stopped reading every single magazine from cover-to-cover. Some of my favorite magazines don’t even exist anymore or have become strictly online mags. I remember when I used to know the latest gossip […]

Out of the over 200 entries they received during the three-day festival, here are the nine finalists. ( I picked #1) […]

Jump Clubb (Anonymous Band From Beverly Hills)

I’m definitely not a fan of over-privileged kids born with a golden spoon in their mouths who try to become successful (respected) musicians. It’s like Paris Hilton trying to make a name for herself as a pop singer when in reality, all she has to show for is her rich blood and D-grade internet porn. […]

"AND THEN THE WIND CHANGED" A SOLO SHOW BY ANTHONY LISTER

Anthony Lister’s tireless approach to living is an unrelenting approach to art. What is evident in his work is the inability to remove a man’s life from his creations. Slouching for no borders (physical and metaphysical), as an artist he is omnipresent. Studio, gallery and museum shows aside, his name and imagery is on street […]

“Falling” by 2020Soundsystem – Album Review

Drenched with endless trance beats and layers of ambient instrumentation, 2020Soundsystem’s new album “Falling” will either put you under a hypnotic spell of hedonistic bliss, or lay your sweet ass straight to sleep. Considering they’re a live electronic band, I was surprised to hear a small variety of instrumentals in “Falling”. It’s way more mellow […]
