happy holidays

this could be one of the worst and best things i've ever seen, all at once!


In case ya didn't know

Of Monsters and Men is pretty good. Kind of like a hybrid of mumford and sons, the rural alberta advantage, and bjork (the only icelandic think I can think of at the moment besides Techno Viking). Worth a listen though (solid b+ musically though a d- as far as the name goes (if I'd have said f someone might have misinterpreted it as a "fail" but if you every call something a "fail" your opinion loses any importance)), seems like they've been around forever but their debut was only released in September.
Of Monsters And Men - Lakehouse
Of Monsters & Men – “Little Talks”

And, it's Christmas and I'm finally starting to feel it. Watching "The Year Without a Santa Claus" tonight and all. So here's this.

Lastly, my bad idea of the day. For the beginning of a power play, instead of Sandstorm or some shit, play Lay U Down by G-Unit. It would work great in NY but the Rangers have too much class and the Islanders don't really count for much of anything.

Now everyone have a great week.

The Contortionist - Vessel



Signals Every Third Thursday iBoard

Every Third Thursday-by-signal-snowboards-iShred from Signal Snowboards on Vimeo.
I was pretty impressed with this board, uually they get a little sloppy with the final product, but this one just like an apple product was clean and strong.


Designer Scott Campbell

Dual Snowboards

I hope so badly these don't catch on. At best they look amusing and might help balance but it's doubtful. And even if they turn out to be great it isnt going to make me want to throw someone on them into a tree any less. If anyone see's these on a mountain this year treat them just as you'd treat a skiboarder, as shitty as possible.


DKNG Poster Design Process

I can't express enough how much this inspires me. The illustration was great yes, but i'm more interested in the process. I liked seeing which windows poped up on the screen, and how you can tell the artist's rituals have been established. The way explosions plays while the process is being shown is interesting to me also, because I don't know how you could possibly be inspired to have a band as a client and not be listening to them while creating the piece. I am definetely going to video screen cap my next digital project, and i'll make sure to compare it to the process of this video. I'm sure when Scott watches it he'll get pretty impatient watching me doodle OCD like haha.

Crafty Site for Felicia

So I stumbled across this site and it had Felicia written all over it, theres some really cool shit in there.

FamilyTree Design Poster Series

This poster series brought to you by FamilyTreeDesign is very tight and clean, but also playful and fun.  These screen printed jems are available to buy (especially you Scott for the new home).  Definetely go to the site and check out all the posters, plus they have some glow in the dark ones that are amazing!


Counterparts Album "The Current Will Carry Us"

So stoaked on this right now.  This is one of my favorite band lately, theres something about their traditional blend of punk riffs and hardcore breakdowns that makes for the perfect recipe that creates a mean and meaningful sound.


Ducks tonight

Let's not let in 4 goals tonight!

and congrats to the solid late game defense from the boys in blue and white last night
I think it's because Canada doesn't really have fighter jets so its karma for false advertising.


Tarot Classics

So the new Surfer Blood is available for stream ad PMA.
It's about damn time and is sure to be outstanding. Ya it's only an ep but it's something and they are already working on their next full length album so hopefully that wont seen to take forever as well.

Structures "Divided by" album teaser

Shit these guys look like their having so much fun, and the music doesn't sound too bad. I have listened to their ep before and liked it, but I think this album is going to romp it.  Btw if you click the album art it will direct you to a download of the album yo.

Morning News

Johnny Craig is in jail.  He is being held on two counts of possession of narcotics, two counts of use of illegal drugs, and one count of failure to appear.  Dance Gavin Dance announced a hiatus until Craig figures out his stupid life.  I think this is a great opportunity to give him the boot and let Kurt Travis back in the band, who is a much better vocalist.  Johnny Craig: hope you get raped in jail.


Maven Jones "Another Year In The Garbage Can" EP

Click Image To Listen 

This is an EP just released by artist Maven Jones who is the guitarist of one of my favorite bands Horse the Band.  This isn't my style of music by any means, but its really creative and is great to work to.  I highly suggest you take  listen, especially you Nate.


Noah on Sons

So I was scrolling through the channels last night on my way to sleep and heard Noah Gundersen playing. I got all kinds of excited about that and then realized it was the end credits to Sons of Anarchy, which is still on my to do list. Good for him and them! Heres the song:


RIDE With Us


So the boys from Ride Snowboards have put together a webisode collection of videos of them filming. It's kind of interesting, and sort of funny. But this episode is really good, they get some sick shots, and finally show me why they are prozzz.

New Counterparts Video


I Had To

Bet Jory was pretty pissed it was Alonzo Tweedy that made that last tackle, the fact that it was all right at twilight was pretty insane too. Saw this shirt a few time's on tv today!



Stepchild Jib Stick


Together Gallery

So as I was checking, I realized that my man Timothy Karpinsky of TOGETHER GALLERY has worked his way up to art director of GNU. He designed the board I ride, and has been busy doing self projects at Together in Portland, and designing more boards for Gnu. So that led me to check out Together's website, and I found some really nice work there from Tim and his coworkers.


Philadelphia Collins

the canadian mustard tiger
Get this out of your head!



Lucas Magoon is a Warrior

So I have been a little disloyal to Transworld Snowboarding's website, and I have been checking out Snowboarder Ma'gs website and finding a lot of good new stuff.  This here is the one and only Lucas Magoon on an episode of "Crewzin."  People like Goon inspire the shit out of me, because they don't take things for granted, and put their whole heart into what they love.


Children of Cybertron video by Emmure

Is Frankie picking on Dr. Acula?

Damien Correll

Accompanied with descriptions, here are a couple examples of New York City based designer Damien Correll.  The way he simply explains the concept to the viewer visually is refreshing for me to see.  It seems like now days if your work is simple and minimal than it isn't as strong, which by looking at Damiens work is obviously not true.  What is Ironic is the piece he did to explain his year is the third piece down, which tells you the machine in his head isn't quite as simple.  I also really enjoy his illustration on how man deals with the unknown and the idea of never knowing who or why we are.
