The Photographer Series: Jonathan Mehring

The Photographer Series: Jonathan Mehring from Andrew Norton on Vimeo.

Andrew Norton has an amazing project called The Photographer Series which is a nice look into some of the best photographers in skateboarding and the stories behind some amazing photos. This one on Jonathan Mehring definitely reminded me that I need to get my ass out on the road for some exploration.

You Listen To This Man Everyday

rick rubin, music, producer, interview

The Daily Beast has a great interview with producer Rick Rubin. I have so much respect for this dude. To say that this guys career is INSANE, would be an understatement. He founded Def Jam in his dorm room and worked with everyone from Slayer, RUN-DMC, Johnny Cash, the Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kanye West and on and on and on.

Check the WIKI to get a grasp on it all then hit up The Daily Beast interview.

People will be pissed. People will be psyched. I think I’m psyched. Fuck a Vine.

New York Times: Behind Kanye’s Mask

New York Times: Behind Kanye's Mask

Say what you will about his antics, but Kanye West is one of the most captivating people in American society today–and his new New York Times interview has already lit the internet world afire. There are countless page view hungry websites putting up “Kanye’s [insert number here] Most Stupid/Hilarious/Awesome Quotes” articles stemming from the article and it even sparked a discussion when I crossed paths with Harrison Boyce late yesterday. The article ranges from topics such as the process of designing and making music and really digs deep into the people/influences that made the polarizing figure who he is today–get to the NYT website and check it out.

Richard Gilligan – DIY

Gilligan6

I am absolutely psyched on this photo series by Richard Gilligan. “DIY” is a four year long documentary photo series on do it yourself skateparks and skatespots throughout Europe and the US. The focus is on the adaptation of existing and abandoned terrain to fit the uses of skaters in a modern environment. Since some/most of these spots in the series also pertain to BMX, I felt this is definitely worth a post. Hope you guys dig it. Gilligan also has a book published with the entire series over at 1980editions.com, which I'm definitely going to scoop up for my own collection.
