Unfortunately this is not the album cover of your old favorite metal band’s collaboration album, although it looks like and should be! These photos were actually taken from an annual festival in  San Bartolome de Pinares, Spain. This unusual, yet rather awesome act is in celebration of  the patron saint of animals for the Feast of Saint Anthony’s Eve. Riders believe after receiving a blessing from a priest, leaping over these bonfires purifies the animal! More photos at the linkMore photos at the link. Continue reading

Ha! Take that!

Just kidding….really though, I am referring to the film entitled Douchebag which is playing at Sundance right now and which stars a friend of mine, Ben York Jones (the non-douche with the glasses pictured below).  I also make my big screen debut in this movie as something like “party extra 22″… just look for my name in the credits, not sure if you’ll actually be able to see me on screen



From what I have gathered, the movie is about 2 estranged brothers who hate each other and are reunited before one of them is about to get married.  They end up going on some road-trip together, giving them plenty of bonding time, and time for the audience to find out the brother about to get married is a total douchebag.  It is supposed to be “quiet” and “touching” with plenty of “awkward, relatable humor”.  I am very curious to see it, but alas I am not in Park City, Utah right now, so I am going to have to wait and see if they get any kind of distribution deal and then go see it in theatres when it comes out as “Mean Guy” or “Bro-trip”.  If you are, however, at Sundance, go see it!  And if you want to read/ see more about it click on the links I hooked you up with below.

Trouble in LA.


Trevor Andrews and his gang of Trouble toured through LA last week, stopping by the Roxy for a show on Friday night. Unfortunately it was the same weekend as some really deep freshies hit Mammoth, so I missed the show.  But I did run into him at the Burton LA flagship store on Melrose and we snapped few style shots.

No-Holds-Barred Assault speakers designed against the standard


San Francisco based Magico, designed some crazy industrial sized speakers to blow your head off or really piss off the neighbours.

Behold the Ultimate II, machined from 4″ thick aircraft-grade hard-anodized aluminum, with 4 pairs of the most ambitious compression drivers ever made. With an 80Hz 1:1 midbass horn, 5-way horn-loaded system frequency response: 22Hz-30KHz. It roams 90″ of the floor and weighs over 800lbs.
