usurper skateboards..........

a friend of mine, jaime weller has a skateboard company goin and it's called USURPER.  Jaime seems to no whats up and those are the type of people best suited for creating skateboarding endevours.  the homie peter, from a post or two ago is aboard as well as Cam and sum other underground-ish types (always the best).  Keep and eye out for these dirts and if you come across any of these fellas, buy em a beer-o.  usurper has a blog.

along those lines check out this thrasher edit of sum skating up the westcoast with a couple clips of jaime and peter.  did i mention those two are responsible for the building of that concrete wunderland called Windells?.............. can't believe i haven't been there still.

pete and jaime.

cam barrett........

the tortillas favorite son.



has always been such an intriuging place to me.  Not sure why put i get a weird chill down my spine viewing the place and it's culture just on film.  Probably need to get there.  Feelin this edit.



new post tommorow.......

gee whiz kid.  where could this be?  been there.  it was nice..........and thats where the post takes place.

more exciting newz, but that will have to wait as well.  by the way.  heard Cam B. is in Seattle with Jaime W.  go find them.  go skate with them.  good night.



film is the best.........

its why i love photography.  Don't get me wrong.  Digital is a great tool, has it's place and has helped me learn a lot.  but unfortunately the werld is now oversaturated with digital photographers and thats where it gets it's bad rap from the purists.  Regardless of your stance,  film is why i love shooting and why i fell in love with taking photographs in the first place.  Here is a small sampling of completely random film and print scans i picked of my hardrive.  Photos taken with my Canon AE-1, Bronica SQ-A, Mamiya RB-67 and a canonette Ql-111 rangefinder.  more to come soon.

jonathan livingston........

i know gopros have there uses.  Personally, however i generally don't like the footage i see from them.  Maybe it's because everyone is using them and in general, not to there full creative abilities they can bestow.  I'd love to get my hands on one as I have all sorts of ideas of what one could do but until then......  This gopro video on the otherhand is a refreshing clip in a oversaturated sea of media coming from these little cameras.  Maybe the fact that a human wasn't wielding the device has to do with it.


more from the digital dust drawer..........

a year and a half ago or so at marginal way.

i think i posted a link to this photo.  anyways it took a little cohearsing, but i got ol jihad to hop the bar across from the park.  TheSkateboardMag posted this on their website.  Always rad gettin the crew sum coverage from our little neck.

more photos soon.  i got ten rollz of film to go pick up tommorow.  So after hours of scanning, i'll have a offering.  Not only is film the best, but the excitement of whats to come.........i can't even remember whats on the rolls.  christmas every time.
