Friend of Obey and our regular Christmas party photographer Jack Coleman just directed a new video for the Growlers. Check it out, it's pretty classy.
Although it's still cold and rainy here in southern california, spring has sprung in our warehouse. Check out some of my favorite new ladies arrivals:

Shepard recently collaborated with Antonino Dâ€™Ambrosio and created artwork for his soon to be released documentary on the Clash that coincides with the Let Fury Have a Heartbeat exhibition currently showing at Subliminal Projects. The print will be released tomorrow, Thursday, Jan 7th at a random time. Its signed by both Shepard and author/director Antonino Dâ€™Ambrosio. Edition of 450, signed/numbered, $50. Limit 1 Per Person/Household.
Based on Antonino Dâ€™Ambrosioâ€™s critically acclaimed book, the documentary Let Fury Have the Hour considers a range of increasingly pressing concerns, using the Clashâ€™s legacy and, more importantly, the profound creative-activism of artists, musicians, and citizens throughout the world as a framework to address persistent issuesâ€”from poverty and racism to environmental devastation and war. The film offers insight from people who believe in the power of art and culture to tackle these issues, and who promote a worldview that is inclusive, expansive, and dynamic. Like the Clash and featured creative-activists, the film challenges its audience to make a difference, creates a new dialogue that moves beyond reactionary and simplistic politics, and inspires us to become part of a historical process of justice and change.
My friend just sent me over an old trailer he made from Skatopia from '01 and '02. I skipped my college graduation in 2002 and went here instead, definitely a decision I have never regretted. If you aren't familiar with Skatopia it's exactly like what it's name sounds like, a skate upotia. Check out SKATOPIA. Brewce Martin founded Skatopia in 1996 Â in Rutland, Ohio and has continuously expanded as the years have gone on. It houses one of the craziest bowls I have ever witnessed (check the vert wall drop-in in the trailer) as well as a boat load of other terrain. But the extra curricular activities make Bowl Bash even more fun.
I found my shirt from '02 in the trunk of my car.
This is either the year Jackass hit the airwaves or the year after I can't remember but some people were super pissed when they arrived. I remember Bam's brother's band, CKY showing up to shoot a video and people threatening to kill them and burn their truck (their equipment is in the rental truck getting stuck going up the hill in the video) Cooler heads prevailed somehow and we all wrecked some cars.
So here's the footage of the crew I went with, Camp Keystone. Thanks Willy! (Errandboy)
