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!
Sandro's Blog — January 2010 Archive Blogger Profile
Sandro is the brainchild, co-founder/owner, creative director and janitor at Color. An art school drop-out he got his start early in life doing graphics for skateboard companies while designing his high-school year book and slanging tee shirts, chips to crack Playstations and fake IDs. He’s proudly not on Facebook and lives with his lovely girlfriend Julianna in Vancouver BC.
2010 is officially here and that means two things: street closures have begun in Vancouver in preparation for the Olympics. And we have a new issue due at the same time. Stay posted for more information on the February release dates and festivities.
While the title is a little misleading, Sub Pop recording artist Chad Vangaalen did play a special surprise show for about 250 lucky Know?Show attendees last night thanks to Lifetime Clothing and Red Bull. Also shouts to DJ Noah York who kept up the vibes all night on the ones and twos.
For its first exhibition of 2010, Red Bull 381 Projects in Toronto invited a selection of artists to nominate the next for a show aptly named after the defunct URL happyaccidents.com. The exhibition is organized by gallery curator Nicholas Brown and Toronto artist Niall McClelland. Each has selected one artist, giving them carte blanche to choose two additional artists based on their own criteria.
Just hours before heading to the airport to return home from China, Brian Caissie sent these photos and captions to sum up the remainder of their 10 days skating Shenzehn. You can check out parts 1, 2, and 3 of the blog posts, but you'll have to wait for the full story and tricks from Cory Wilson / Derek Swaim / Geoff Dermer / Kevin Lowry / Max Fine / Stacy Gabriel / in a future issue of Color Magazine... we're putting this one on ice for a minute. Have a safe flight home boys!
BabyFace club, we met up with some friends and partied ti'll 6am last night! The clubs here are very visual with lasers, gogo girls dancing and cheap drinks. At Jelly K you could even play drinking games for Hello Kitty dolls.
Some skating from our gang in China right now (By Brian Caissie). 2 more days left!
Cory Wilson, ollie up to manny, took my photo and landed.
Canada's premiere lifestyle tradeshow (skate, snow, fashion, these...), is happening in Calgary next week. Are you going to be there? Let me know because Color x Lifetime are hosting a very special night at the Marquee Room, Wednesday January 20th for VIP's with free Coors, Red Bull, special secret live performance and we want all our virtual friends there!
VIPs will be treated to an exclusive exhibition of works by Color's Ben Tour and Gordon Nicholas. If you aren't yet aware of the collab these two did in the latest issue of Color, you can get yours at the party. Or click here for 'the making of'.
A few months back we published an ad announcing the DC x City Of New Lights "You Can Cut It" contest. Participants could download raw video clips from the filming for the City Of New Lights and edit their own rendition which would be sent back and judged by none other than the director himself, Jarvis Nigelski. So without further a due, Congratulations to 16 year old, Bryan Capiñanes from Vancouver! He won a $500 prize pack from DC. Watch his winning edit and other entries here.
I have to say though, this one is pretty tight:
Most of us would place pro skateboarders up there along with movie stars anyway, but now you really can. Rick McCrank, John Rattray, Steve Olson, and Frank Gerwer star in Machotaildrop, a feature film produced by Corey Adams and Alex Craig with Fuel TV.
And if you like what you see, but can't find the full length feature, check out the Cakeskate "faces 'n spaces" or the cover story from Color vol. 4 issue 2 for more insight into the great mind of these masters.
The crowds at spots get huge in seconds. The cops came and watched which is always a great feeling compared to canada. When you find a spot like this you just want to skate it all day. Cory, ollie (By Brian Caissie)
