Pretty simple really, Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree. Etnies is traveling through Costa Rica with their team on a mission to plant the first trees of the Etnies Rainforest. The Buy a Shoe, Plant a Tree program started out as a part of Etnies’ owner and CEO’s vision of reforesting the earth through sales of Etnies’ Jameson 2 Eco shoes, and is on track to plant 35,000 trees.

Made my way to Portland this weekend and was stoked to find out OFF! was playing on Saturday night, and all my buds wanted to head down!! Our friends' band Mikey & the Mistakes were on the bill as well, with Mean Jeans and Blood Beach, so we were geared up for a dirty sweaty punk show. I grabbed a couple pics while dodging fists, mohawks and falling speakers.... Thanks to Mario for hooking us up at the last minute!

Bill's videos are just like him. Random and around every once in a while. Enjoy his newest shit...
Chris Atwood sent me his newest 'zine, Ships Passing in the Night, about a month ago but it disappeared under the waves of papers on my desk and surfaced earlier today... glad it did! If ya don't know, Chris is the man behind the Mid-90's blog over at Lowcard Mag, and has this to say about Ships...
"These photographs represent a culmination of 4 or 5 years spent skateboarding, traveling, working on a BFA, and generally lurking it up. Beneath the surface of normal human interaction lies a more basic sort of reality in which people allow themselves let their guard down and becomes a transparency of their thoughts and feelings. These images explore the relationships between photographer and subject, the nature of celebrity, what is dismissed as ordinary and regarded as surreal."
Hamburger Eyes will set you up with a copy for 5 bucks...
Lakai's re-release of the classic Manchester is shipping to stores as this post is being made. Other colorways coming soon. For more on the shoe, check our Skate Tested review for a regular skater's opinion.
The Cult of Stacks Exhibition is back from Japan and being loaded directly into a van along with the Stacks skate team, a filmer, Michael Leon and Mark the Navigator. They've taken to the open road up from Los Angeles doing shows in San Francisco, Portland and next up: Vancouver!
Spike Jonze Presents Yo-Yo Ma and jookin Lil Buck. Beautiful.
All prints are one-of-a kind, meaning YOU are the soul owner of the image if you choose to purchase it. Pretty rare these days, but then so are photographers like Shura.
This exhibition it made possible from the kind support from Spitfire wheels, Thunder trucks, Matix clothing and DVS shoes from Supra Distribution. Partial proceeds go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Stay tunes to see details and purchase options in our online shop.
I don't know if I've said this before, but a TON of great stuff coming out of Quebec these days! Seriously... NDG is jamming with their ramp, ULC steady pressing boards and dropping video clips, and now Father & Son Skateboards (formerly Father Skateboards) comes out with a fresh line of graphics for spring/summer! With a newborn, where did they find the time!?
