This Guy Took 4 Leafblowers And A Skateboard Deck And Turned Them Into A Wonderfully Goofy Hoverboard

Want the experience of a kinda-sorta-hover-board, but don’t have $10,000 and a copper halfpipe laying around?

Fret not! As Texan Ryan Craven proves, you can pull off something of a similar vein with four gutted leafblowers, a sheet of plywood, and some gorilla tape.

The disclaimers here are the same as the rest of the “hoverboards” of 2014: it’s neat, but it’s not going to turn you into Marty McFly. Without any sort of friction between you and the ground, you’re not so much steering the board as you are standing atop it as it glides wherever the hell it wants. With that said, I’d totally ride this thing until the batteries were dead and/or I fell off and broke both my wrists.

Whereas the Arx Pax Hendo uses a damned clever magnetic propulsion system to keep itself afloat, this one uses a pocket of air trapped inside a…

7 Dec

I turned 31 yesterday. Pretty relaxing birthday due to not having to be a caretaker. I slept for five straight hours. My parents took care of Lexi while I slept. Then I ate a huge bowl of shrimp fried rice and had me some vanilla birthday cake AND a chocolate and vanilla cupcake. I got birthday money and got myself the first season of “Sifl and Olly” on instant video.

For countless fans, the names of the independent record labels that released so much of the most urgent and most original punk, hardcore and post-punk of the 1980s and ’90s are as familiar as the bands they first signed, recorded and unleashed on the world. Just glimpsing, say, a Homestead, Twin/Tone, Rough Trade, Matador or Lookout logo immediately brings to mind bands as diverse as Sebadoh, the Replacements, the Pixies, Guided by Voices, the Fall, Mudhoney, Green Day, Gang Green, the Lyres, the Misfits and a thousand other long-gone and, in a few improbable cases, still-thriving acts.

Then there was Greg Ginn’s SST Records. With albums, EPs and singles from bands like Black Flag, the Minutemen, Soundgarden, the Meat Puppets, Sonic Youth and the mighty, indispensable Hüsker Dü, SST was arguably the most influential indie label of them all.

Now, the main man behind so many of SST’s greatest records — a musician, producer and engineer who goes…

In the car-ride to the shoot’s location, I practically interviewed the photographer (@kingstonphoto) about the history of the company and its founders. Come to find out, Rebel8 is an inspirational rags to riches story about a guy with an idea and a dedication to a lifestyle.

In 2003, founder Joshy D. started Rebel8 with only $500 and a bag of printed tees designed by good friend, Mike Giant. Yeah, the legendary tattoo and graffiti artist Mike Giant. Yes, THAT Mike Giant.

Fast-forward to just over ten years later and hours upon hours of hard work, and Rebel8 is an internationally known street-wear company heavily inspired by the tattoo, skateboard, and graffiti cultures of the West Coast. But its not just any street-wear company; Rebel8 is one…

It took me a while to come up with a good post. Hard to beat the previous one on Coca Cola :)

First, I was going to get grumpy about a marketing text I received from Specsavers and how they should really review their communication approach. Then I wanted to tell a story of a new impact food brand from US that I discovered, Enjoy Life (those with multiple allergies may be familiar with it). But then I saw this amazing video (below) and heard about this project (thank you, A Girl’s Guide To Taking Over The World) and it’s easily the best impact project I’ve heard of.
