Ruckus with Ruxpin

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

Just like fixed gear bikes, A-Rod and twitter, everybody seems to either LOVE or HATE Asher Roth. I could care less about him, but he’s got some great lines and this video is heeelarious. NSFW.

Nat King Cole

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

When I was a grommet, moms played only four tapes in the car: UB40, Van Morrison, Patsy Cline and the Nat King Cole duet tape with his daughter Natalie. So when I got word about this album, I was very excited. The album came out last week and I have yet to pick it up, but I’m looking forward to the Nat collaborations with Just Blaze, Cut Chemist, Cee-Lo and Tv On The Radio, among others. Maybe I’ll buy mom a new tape for the whip (yes, she still rocks tapes). Who sells tapes?!

I love that Capitol Records hired a Graff artist to paint their parking lot as a promotion for the album.

Time Wasterz Sundance Clips Part 1

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

When we originally got together to brain storm for Time Wasterz we came up with the idea to create a web show about nothing. Just grown men being nerds. Then we got side tracked and met some cool musicians and artists and had them share some of their stories. That worked out really well, but we feel its time to get back to program. Sure you can expect more interviews and behind the scenes footage in the episodes to come, but you can also expect some of that good ol’ fashioned throw away footage. Here are some of the non-highlights from Sundance. You’ll find little discriptions underneath the clips.

WARNING: if you are into being productive then please avoid viewing these clips. They are meant soley for those wishing for nothing more than to pass the time until the dinner bell rings.

Epic!

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Man the past few days have been epic down here!  I’ve been getting a lot of photo requests for waves and surfing but I can’t show you the surf shots.  If you want to see those you gonna have to wait till Scott Aichner and Surfer Magazine let you see them.  But here are a few to hold you over!

This is the epic view from the room!  What a beautiful sunrise and a great way to start the day!

The waves have been so fun down here!  A great way to start the ‘09 schedule!

I love my job!

If you’re at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas this week, be sure to look for our boy Nicky Savage. He’s touring with Sparrow Love Crew and The Cold War Kids. They’ll be killing it all week. But if you see Nicky and he’s wearing the above paisley leggings…then please punch him in his fucking moustache for me.

Download the mix Nicky did for Contrast Magazine HERE.

Living in Santa Cruz, CA I had access to all kinds of bomb Mexican Food. SF got the best burritos. I’ve been hunting for a legit spot ever since I moved back and a few months ago, I found it. Mexico Restaurant in Kalihi. I wouldn’t put it up against the Bay, but its got a nice atmosphere, good sized portions and great flavor. Go support.
