According to Gaz:
A 4 day trip to Denton and Fort Worth, TX. Featuring Randy Taylor, Brandon Hoerres,
George Boyd and Mikey Luplow.
Fun and Bromance.
This was pre Randy’s last surgery hence the low clip count. He’s been in so much pain
with the hardware hitting his nerves. That’s shit’s out now and we plan to start filming
with Randy soon.
If you’re a guitarist/musician or just a music fan, than this is for you. Lot’s of notable people discussing the famous wah-wah pedal in a well put together documentary.
From Joey Tosi’s Vimeo page:
Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World tells the story of the wah wah effect pedal, from its invention in 1966 to the present day. Musicians, engineers, and historians discuss the impact of the pedal on popular music and demonstrate the various ways it has been used, as well as how its evolution has improved the ability of artists to express themselves musically. The film features interviews with Brad Plunkett, the inventor of the pedal, plus many other musical luminaries such as Ben Fong-Torres, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Buddy Guy, Art Thompson, Eddie Kramer, Kirk Hammett, Dweezil Zappa, and Jim Dunlop. These professionals explain how a musical novelty transcended convention and has become timelessly woven into the fabric of modern pop-culture.
This pretty funny. I’m sure I would have been speechless had I ridden by this spot as this was going down. OSS dudes gorilla ape-ing it.
Going into this interview, I really didn’t know Chase that well personally. I think we’ve only briefly met 2 times at the most, so I was especially interested in throwing him some questions once the idea popped into my head. I’m definitely stoked with what I got back. I think this interview gives you a good all around look into Chase Dehart, and what he’s about.

Cult teamed up with Vans to present the first ever BMX night at the House of Vans — a private skate park in Brooklyn, NY. The turnout was amazing and it was so rad to see so many BMXer’s having a blast at the park. Huge thanks to Vans and Cult for putting this together and hopefully there is more great nights like this to come.

On a somewhat dismal but real note, the current earthquake/tsunami that’s hit Japan is as much of a disaster as you can imagine. This was the first event of this kind that I happened to catch live on TV as it went down, and it was crazy. Watching water blaze on shore and barrel through towns was a crazy visual. Our thoughts go out to everyone in Japan.
Boston.com has a bunch of photos that touch on all that’s gone down. Check those out HERE.
I found this fascinating article on Slate by way of You Might Find Yourself, one of my favorites. The article romanticizes “the lost art of pickpocketing” and the work that goes into it, and offers some commentary as to why credit card fraud and identity theft have taken the place of old school thievery.
I’ll leave you with this excerpt from the article which is actually a quote from the 1973 movie Harry in your Pocket:
“There’s no sense of craft anymore,” he tells a promising young stall. “Nowadays youngsters haven’t got it, no patience, no discipline, they don’t want to spend the time to learn. So they … hit some poor old lady over the head and grab her purse. … It shouldn’t be allowed!”

The ‘Aspiration’ episode of How TV Ruined Your Life by the BBC. Incredibly funny Charlie Brooker banter accompanied by an array of archival footage. Hit the jump to ruin your life.
12 BEATS BY THE GENIUS PRODUCER OF LIL B’S “I’M GOD”, “I’M THE DEVIL”, “MOTIVATION”, AND “REALEST ALIVE”. Hailing from New Jersey Clammy Clams dropped his free instrumental mixtape to the cyber world a few days ago and honestly I’ve listened to nothing else since. Even if ‘rap’ isn’t something you care about… musically… these are all really compelling pieces of work that should be given some thought.
