In retrospect, I’m so happy that my mom kicked me out of the house at 14 for not giving up on hardcore punk! It forced me to move to San Francisco, which was a huge turning point in my life. One by product of me living in the Castro in 83/84

When it comes to illustration, it doesn’t get much more fucking metal than Mark Riddick. His Compendium of Death book is one of my favorites to sit down with and flip through (often with my 4-year-old, who loves it…some may judge me…), marveling at the grotesque and diseased visions that

If one sport represented 80’s hardcore, it would have to be skateboarding. Both of these movements were a big part of youth culture and went hand in hand with youth rebellion during the ME generation. I have fond memories of skating the streets of Venice and Santa Monica with my wild

I have chills right now as I watch the best documentary about skateboarding, New York & hip hop. This film sheds light on skate culture in the Big Apple like no other I’ve seen. Concrete Jungle is a must-see  picture for anyone that loves these art forms…It makes total sense

100% Credit for this Feature Goes to Jenkem Magazine! Don’t do drugs or you’ll never amount to anything. Unless you’re a skateboarder, then you’ll probably be surrounded by enablers with opportunities of every type to misbehave and dabble in altered states of perception and self discovery.

Loyalty and passion for an art form is something that I respect to the fullest. When you throw skateboarding into the mix, then you really have my attention. Barrier Kult are by far my favorite horde of skaters doing it right now, and when I saw that they had a

Watching skateboard slams is like passing a car wreck and having to slow down to see what happened. As much as seeing someone eat shit is painful, you just can not stop yourself from watching it! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty, because it’s time to peep some of
