This is a frame from one of my favorite skate vids, Yeah Right. It's one of many Girl videos you can watch at our studio next friday at the Art Dump show!
I'm stoked for this show having grown up skating and loving all aspects of the culture — the deck shaping, the graphics, the shoes, the vids, the stickers, the ads, the music.

The MA born Copenhagen based Keith Canisius just released an experimental album, 'The Oceanic Voyage', which might be best saved for when you are actually lost at sea and have the capacity to listen to a 4min song that seems more like a 15min song, but his approachable Dreampop / Chill Wave / Psychedelic album 'This Time it's Our High' released last year is still fresh and comes in at 'F-ing awesome', just short of 'really F-ing awesome'. It could be the perfect companion this Spring/Summer. Listen at Soundcloud or that one site.
