Turkey day in Santa Cruz was pretty epic. Rippy and Dougy came down from snow-buried Tahoe. Hacksaw and Bridge came up from LA. Smokestack came down with a crew in the tour bus/rapemobile. Tons of good people showed. Good times were had by all. I think the highlight of the night for me might have been the dancing that ensued during this George Clinton music video which I stumbled upon while trying to cue up an old childhood favorite - "Everybody Walk the Dinosaur."
If you ever want to send a dance party into an all out frenzy, cue this video up on a huge TV and crank the volume. The video description on youtube says its from the Super Mario Bros movie...? Smokestack, get off your ass and blog those pics!!
This saturday I went and skated a ditch north of santa cruz up a trail from the highway 1. The place is pretty rugged but definitely one of the sickest spots I've ever been to. No dirty teens for miles, amazing views, and quirky DIY concrete.good graffiti everywhere here's a short clip of a line I was trying to get downIf you want to see some people really kill it, check out the first minute or so of this Lakai video. Gunna try to hit this spot up a bunch in the coming weeks and stock some footy.
seeing best coast and sunny and the sunsetts on saturday and ariel pink on sunday in houston. quite excite. i know smokestack saw ariel pink in frisco and wasn't too pleased but i've been digging the new album a lot lately, particularly this track:
