It's that easy to make a donation. Almost too easy? I was on the train tonight and a kid was trying to sell chocolate bars for $1 and people couldn't even look him in the eye! Maybe next time he should text everyone on the train that he's selling chocolate bars for $1. Texting is an insane thing. The concept that instantaneous texting can raise $5,000,000+ is staggering. I thought nobody in the United States had money? I guess $10 adds up. Maybe the Red Cross can bail our country out through viral texting fundraising too. Seriously?



What happened is tragic, but I can't help but feel between the Celebrity million dollar donations and the American Idol impulse to mass text, I'm kind of grossed out by the nature of disaster coverage. Overwhelming shit shows and justifiably so, but all we do is throw money at tragedy, but how far does it all really go? People dead in the streets, rotting because theres nowhere to put them, 3,000 prison inmates set free, people with no homes. Is it really okay to shine a huge network light on devastation 24 hours a day to remind us back home how unpredictable and devastating the world can be? And has become for thousands of Haitians? Somebody is making money off this and it really fucking bothers me.



People are trying to sell everything and anything in the name of Haiti. Items that are sold that are not 100% towards relief weirds me out. Seriously, if you make a penny off of a disaster, by cosmic law, you are kind of sketchy. Of course they have to pull off the craigslist ads that just say things like "Accepting Haiti donations" from some random asshole that sells birds.


Conan sells Tonight Show on Craigslist! Rad!



Wow.. Calledout!!!



Heard this song on a podcast. Not the official music video.. regardless. Heavy music for heavy blogs.

WINTER OLYMPICS



Desiree has been trying to get this thing going for a while, and now it's finally happening! A ladies skate night of Brooklyn's very own at KCDC. Now I don't have to pretend like I'm going to skate the Autumn bowl every weekend.I'm not super into ladies anything nights, but when I think about the fact that I haven't skated in over a month, free indoor skating sounds like a great idea. Plus the flyer is sweet. The first night is Thursday, Jan. 28th.

SUPPORT PIECE








NBC drama. Jay Leno is not funny and wasn't he supposed to retire years ago? Conan O'Brien might be done with the late night slot after just 7 months in L.A. Conan's no punk! Bureaucratic network t.v. politics will soon end another dedicated and talented career. I'm sure if he does leave NBC, conan fans will follow him. I know I do. But seriously, the economy is fucking with my Conan fix..

ENDLESS IRONY



I think your friends forgot to tell you that you look really dumb. Why can't adults just draw on their faces with markers and be satisfied? No, you gotta have your body covered from head to toe, and get glasses drawn to your face that don't even have the ends of its arms. They just kind of disappear into the side of your head which looks even stupider. I'm positive this guy doesn't have a conventional job. Lucky for him.. cause if you have enough time to get this tattooed on your face and not even further cripple your chances of getting a job in this economy, then you're obviously living on a trust fund..

FOOK DA LYFE, FOOK MY LIFE, FOOK U


New digicam video from yaje and friends. I got an out of practice nollie flip with red pants in the second leg of the video. Overall, the video has more than decent skating for your average digicam vid. But nowadays, vhx's or flipcams, it's still goin' down. No Berrics required

Toy machine



Creature board with a beer bottle opener above the label



Shut salamis



Santa Cruz cop beater graphic pretty sick..



Deathwish 40oz Cruiser. No nollie tricks?..



Fatigue tank Black Label



Feelin' this one with the blue natural stain


Reissues and new cruiser decks that caught my eye. You can never have too many? Maybe you can, but there's nothing better than a sick cruiser with fat gummy wheels to facilitate the transportation of your lazy ass. Of course I'd never get caught riding a beef salami..

THREE BROTHERS RIDING A RAINBOW WAVE









the artwork of children is fascinating on many levels. however their uninhibited imagination is
not always very true to reality. so when korean artist yeondoo jung set out to turn the drawing's
of 5-7 year old children into reality, some interesting environments were sure to arise. after he
collected over 1,000 drawings, a select few were selected and turned into reality through a
series of photo shoots titled 'wonderland'. the results are just as fascinating as the original
drawings.-yeondoojung.com

RAW POWER



Shit is fucking cool! Rawwwww culture.





LISTEN TO JIM




Would it be untrue to assume everybody was on drugs in the 60's?



Catchy!



I WAS A TEENAGE MONSTER



Puke Rock is so punk rock..! What a gem this one is.whatever it is



T.V.s from outerspace! If Roky Erikson became a prophet of Elvis in drag from the waist down. And a blind guy who had to hit notes out of his throat was in the band too. This song rules so hard



Canadian teens relate to the "gancha". Canadian white boy reggae has got to be up there in the land of oxymoron music genres, but this shit is funny.



Might as well go for a soda and make a song about it? The song itself might blow really hard, but why else would a mini balding rock band be shredding in your fridge?



Yo mama's on crack rock! What??
