Double Breasted

During the winter I wanted to make a night time edit and try and get all east coast. It never ended up happening, we only filmed one night just before Christmas. The footage has been hanging around on my computer for a while, as I filmed other clips I just dragged them over and on to the edit not really knowing what I was going to do with them all.

The other week my computer threw a wobbly and wiped most of the raw clips. I decided just to have all the night stuff as before and leave the day stuff at the end. I also downloaded Action Bronson's mixtape and thought Double Breasted would fit as the song is made up of two different bits - a bit like the edit. The track doesn't last until the second part of the edit but who cares, it's a two and a half minute long web edit with weak story attached to it.

Seas

Justin has been making some more music as seas.

I don't know how to link to the music from tumblr so click on the picture below (also one of Justin's works) and have a listen.

Don't drop in.

Muff came to visit yesterday, we went to skate dev green for a bit. After 5 minutes Muff was hacking around cockmaster and young BMXer dropped in without looking. Luckily Muff came out of the collision okay.

Look where you're going kids.

Beers, boards and bros.

Skateboarding is a gendered hobby. There’s no doubt about it. A good example of this, aside from the number of boys and girls at any given session anywhere (allowing specifically gendered comps), is the regularity in which beer is connected to skateboards and skateboarding, in one way or another. Beer shaped skateboards, beer bottle graphics, tricks for beer and the documentation of beer drinking on tours all play their role in terms of symbolizing the connections between skateboarding and wider displays of hegemonic (traditional/everyday) masculinity. In this case, getting pissed. Fair enough, contemporary statistics concerning gendered binge drinking might reflect the contrary, but certainly historically, getting pissed is a ‘man thing’ – definitely with beer. More often than not, in the context of skateboarding and other sporting cultures, these connections are taken for granted. The gendered nature of certain pastimes is just assumed – and there’s a problematic but also somewhat wonderful simplicity in this (depending on your interpretation). Skateboarding good – Beer good. That’s not to say that the community is an exclusive one, or that there’s no place for girls in skateboarding. It would be great to see more girls on skateboards - But I’m bang into the connection between skateboarding and stupid man stuff. Beers, boards and bro’s and beers and beers.
