A month I randomly came across an album at Lou’s Records in Leucadia from a band called “Skaters”. Their name amused me, so I was curious what they sounded like. If a vinyl has an interesting cover, or a band has a catchy name, I will write it down and look up the music to see if I eventually want to buy the record. I looked up their music later on and was excited to see they were fellow New Yorkers (extra points for any band from New York). I found the remix for Miss Teen Massachusetts, and couldn’t stop listening to it. I decided that the song I was originally going to use for Summer Salad wasn’t working for me anymore, and this new song from Skaters was just the thing I needed. I finally purchased said record yesterday (Along with a 1980 gem from Surf Punks – so bad it’s good). Unfortunately the record doesn’t have the remix on it, but I think the original version is just as good. Oh, I bought the record at Fingerprints in Long Beach. Sorry Lou’s, I will make it up to you!
Headed to the desert with a bunch of friends this past Friday. Manny brought his tent setup and we drank beer, shot BB guns, and danced. The moon rise that night in the desert was absolutely unreal – the dust cast a ghostly haze across the horizon and gave everything a dream-like twilight quality. It didn’t feel like earth. Definitely blessed to have been able to do something like this.
I’m honored to announce that Party Mix has been selected to show at the London Surf Film Festival on Friday, November 1st, paired up with Taylor Steele’s “This Time Tomorrow”. So stoked! If you’re in London please check it out!
Heading to Tofino, Canada with Jenna, Sara, Nicole, and Olivia. Gonna be a blast! Here’s some stuff I am bringing. Good thing I still have my hood and gloves from when I did the winter surfing thing back in New York!
