      Dear Children's Place, I'm Sorry

      I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to The Children's Place for designing one of their graphics a few seasons before they released it to the world. I'm really sorry, y'all. If I'd known that you were going to be using the same exact concept, I

      All I Want for Christmas

      Truth be told, I want absolutely nothing for Christmas. I'd actually like to get rid of some crap in my life Vs. acquiring more stuff, but for the sake of this column I came up with a list of things I'd like for Christmas. Or for the holidays. Or whatever…

      Remember Zulu's?

      You might be asking yourself, "Why did two grown men spend their Sunday afternoon in a drainage ditch?" Valid question. Answer: Because we were trying to film some tricks for an upcoming Roger Skateboards video offering.

      Hashtag Gum Soles

      Yesterday I totally shredded some ditches with two of my all time favorite dudes, the multigenerational Parsons Crew. Mike P. is pretty much a folk hero amongst older Austin skate nerds. Legendary for jumping in head first without checking the water in te…

      Permitted Snooping

      I mentioned last week that the East Austin Studio Tour (E.A.S.T.) was taking place. To me, the most fun part about the tour is getting to step into artists' studios and see their personal workspaces. Permitted snooping.

      An Interview with Todd Falcon

      Although skateboarding waves the "No Rules!" flag pretty fervently, I've found that most participants are actually doing exactly the opposite. There's an unwritten dress code that most skateboarders adhere to, as well as a list of acceptable t…

      The Trading Tortoise

      This past Saturday I visited DOMY Books, my local art/photography/design bookstore in Austin, and participated in an event called The Trading Tortoise. The Trading Tortoise is a traveling participatory art tour created and organized by Souther Salazar and…

      An Interview with Travis Millard

      Next Friday my buddy Travis Millard and I are doing an art show in Kansas City at Escapist. I'm pretty sure next week's column will be about the trip/show, so I thought I'd preface that column with a quick interview with Travis. Well, that's n…

      I Finally Got an iPhone

      I finally got an iPhone a few weeks ago. I think what sealed the deal was when I was out skating with some old bros and one of my unemployed/unemployable friends pulled his iPhone out of his pocket to Instagram some nonsense.

      Beggars Can't Be Bitching

      I skipped writing this column last week because I was busy doing other stuff. What kind of other stuff? Oh, you know, just making a skateboard video kind of other stuff. We had a premiere for it at a real movie theater and everything.
