The Cruel & Curious Sea II – Film #1

There are a couple of videos in the pipeline documenting our recent return to the barns of Stowe Barton for The Cruel & Curious Sea II exhibition.

This is the first, a great little edit by Jessica at Shimnix Sessions, featuring a soundtrack from our good friends, StringerBessant.

Keep On Pushin’

I’m ashamed to say this is four months old. Not sure how I missed it but I did, like a big nit-wit. It is a true delight especially for an ageing skateboarder like me who recognises some heroes of his generation like Barbee, Natas, Hensley, Duffy, Dressen, Markovich and Salman Agah.

Just to make this short even f*ckin’ cooler; the narration at the start is Ian MacKaye.

The Town that Hippies Built

There’s a great new series in the offing from Huck magazine, Huck across America, taking a fresh look at what the American Dream means to those on the fringes.
It starts off in Ward, Colorado: a town that the Hippies built.

California Summer

Bit of an old one from RVCA. But it’s of Alex Knost and it’s of California and just guess where I’m heading very soon?

Happy place.

#THERIDGE

The cinematography alone is enough to evoke a puffed-chest out of those with even the most tenuous Celtic lineage. Figure in the frankly mind-bending exploits of Danny MacAskill on the Cuillin Ridgeline in his native Skye, and you have a video that’s undoubtedly going to be in your Facebook feed for weeks.

No question – Danny MacAskill is one spokey-dokey short of a full rainbow set.
Long may this be the case.

Pieta Brown – Paradise Outlaw

Accurately described by more than one critic as “gently intoxicating”, Paradise Outlaw is a lovely bit of folk music. It was self produced and recorded at Justin Vernon’s studio in Wisconsin, with a cast of supporting musicians that include Vernon himself as well as Amos Lee and Brown’s father, Greg Brown.

Here’s “Flowers of Love” the debut track from the album:
