A couple issues back we did this feature on 'used-to-be' defunct skateboard magazine from the early 90s called Poweredge. While they gear up for a big relaunch they have a movie trailer up that begs the question, "Where is skateboarding going?". THere's a tall list of skaters offering their ideas, but among them are Andy Mac, Greg Lutzka, Dayne Brummet and Willy Santos... So you know... it's a bright future ahead, right? But seriously there's some solid dudes in there for sure. click above and check out the trailer.

San Francisco's Wooden Shjips are a beast of a cruising, chugging, space-rock band, and their offspring/side-project Moon Duo (composed of Sanae Yamada and Erik Johnson of the Shjips) might be even more beastly. Their Killing Time EP on Sacred Bones got some heads yakking last year, but they're about to blow the doors wide open with a proper LP, Escape, on Woodsist. Four songs, two sides of wax, and nothing but face-melting, acid-damaged organ/guitar burners. It's trashy, blown-out rock in the tradition of Royal Trux, but switched into the glazed, endless-highway glide mode of classic krautrock, for continuous, slow-motion explosion that'll carry you clear out of whatever zone you're in and onto whatever plane you're aiming at. Deep riffs.
This Time Tomorrow is a Philly based skateboard video project that's spanned the last 3 years of the decade. Under the direction of Chris Mulhern the cast and crew has torn up the streets of London, Paris, Lyon, Rome, Berlin, Athens, Venice, Montreal and my family's home town of Trieste! Starring american skaters Devon Connell, Jimmy McDonald, Curtis Rapp, Dave Caddo, Brendan Granstrand and Will Harmon with equal parts by UK's Rory Milanes, Steph Morgan and Lucien Clarke and some east coast Canadians for good measure - this rare independent video is something you won't want to let pass you by. What a great way to start off the year!
