THE KARDASHEV SCALE

I am bringing back my research section. At first I thought it was too “off topic” so I took it off, but now I am realizing that in these hectic times all we have is self education and truth seeking. Technology has hit the elbow of exponential growth. We are about to see all the sci fi stuff become real. Nanobots. AI. Mars is happening in our lifetime. Though what is a “lifetime” going to be when we can either upload our brains to a computer or just keep 3D printing new body parts and organs.

We have to keep up or get left in the dust. I study lots of things from futurology and science to entrepreneurship and health. I will start posting on all of these topics. The way I see it is if I can sell more zines today, then I can get me a robot wife in the future. In outer space.

BANGS

One time, under pressure, I let my band mates cut bangs into my long hair before a show. I was hoping it would look like this. Or The Ramones. It didn’t. It looked like shit. But I did get to kiss a girl that night.

UNO

Walmart uno dread.

“One day you will be free.”

This is just dangerous. One handed ape hangers splitting lanes. It is cool looking though.

BEAST

They say once you start a blog, you can’t stop. I say you can get lazy though or just get busy with other things. I do plan on dropping up to $3gs on some new camera gear LATER THIS WEEK. I’m thinking the blog might be on berserker mode after that. We’ll see.

SK8

Hamburger Eyes collaboration board with OTHERNESS. It’s got full bleed top and bottom graphics packaged with a zine.

This is what it looks like gripped. It’s a biggie. 9″ wide and hella long. It needs 149s and 57mm wheels at least I think. But then risers too. Working on it. I will let you know the right setup when I get there.

It was rad going to the factory to pick up the boards. Turns out I already knew the owners from high school days.

EVERYTHING MUST GO

Jake Michaels and Daniel Arnold had an awesome show at Slow Culture. The last show there.

They were selling all the photos right off the wall and then replacing them with new ones. This guy ruled everything.

Most of the crowd bailed too early because later in the night they hung the big ones.

TINO

Tino is killing it with his new book out. I got to shoot some press photos and they used one in the LA Weekly.

CHRYSALIS

At first I was just here for the holidays. And then maybe I would stay just a little longer and help the folks out. They are old and they don’t drive anymore and I will save some dough since I am looking for a new place anyways.

But then a month goes by. What day is it even? What is happening to me? Who am I?

An upgrade is happening. All systems are being fixed or replaced.

A grand healing.
