We're premiering the 5BORO video Join or Die, at Lazy Tuesday this week in Vancouver. Here inside Color HQ, we just watched it on our state-of-the-art (fatback) TV for the first time on Canadian soil. I can tell you for sure, you gon wanna see this.
NY music, NY skating, NY video editing. Our boy Elkin had his hand in this one too, so you know it's good.
Get down to The London Pub (700 Main St.) in Vancouver on Tuesday Feb.21 to see for yourself.
The next time you have the urge to hit a train, ask yourself: is graffiti fun or dumb?According to this 1976 educational film, it's up to you to decide:
"Recently, some have labelled graffiti: ART. And indeed, it can be attractive, amusing, and interesting. Often graffiti is encouraged as decortion on certain walls, fences and sidewalks. It has even inspired art and literature. On the other hand, by almost any standards, graffiti is ugly. Some of it distasteful and a little of it offensive. Young people must decide: is graffitti FUN or is it DUMB?"
Thanks to Twitter follower @GregThomas44 for showing me this.
STANCE has a new commercial featuring some of their riders and new Spring line of great socks.
Chet Childres aka Luda Crooks aka Adul Skoorc has some new prints available via Jai Tanju and Jason Adams' Lost Highway. If you've picked up a recent issue of COLOR then you've seen the man and his art in one form or another. He's been skating longer than most skater's have been out of diapers and still progressing, see Nike's recent SB Chronicles Vol. 1 for evidence.

Linda brought me a gift back from her recent trip to Portland.
If you're from America, you likely already know about this little beauty Busted Paper, but up here in Canada, public shaming is practically unheard of. We're gettin' there though. We almost decided to air the Vancouver rioters on TV, but in the end the courts scrapped that plan. Oh America, we have so much to learn from you yet.
Note: Make sure to test your hand at the "Who Dunnit" puzzle on the back where you get to match up mugshots with heinous crimes. "Hmmm, now which one of you was strangulation..."
