Up and Comers: Jo Zenk

The usual introductions start with the moment when you first met the guy to be interviewed. In this specific case I have to say, that I am not quite sure where I met Johannes the first time, but I am sure about the fact that as soon as I got to know him a little I hated him instantly. Never would I ever hang out with that guy. Life can teach you tough lessons and the one that I was taught when it comes to Johannes Zenk is, that you should never judge someone on first sight. ...

'Lost Transmissions': A Video by James Sharp

Over the past 18 months or so I've been filming a fair few things, which I had initially hoped to use in some sort of project of my own. But after donating a few to various people to use online, and losing around 40% of what I had when my hard drive blew up, I decided it was probably time to make a little something before the footage was too dated. -James Sharp...

Danny Jensen: One Minute One Spot

Danny's not a robot, he can take a fall, but he is a machine that shows no fear. His skating is the sort of skating that will get you the enders for two different montages in Be-Mag's 'Featuring The World' DVD a while back. It's the sort of skating where in a contest if he lands the big trick he's going for it'll win the prize for best trick of the day, and if he has a section in a video it'll be the most talked about section in that video. Not that long ago an edit was shared on the web featuring some old footage of Danny skating in his homeland of New Zealand, and the universally positive response throughout the skating world was a testament to his ability to defy what we've come to expect in a person's skating. He's a stuntman that takes risks, and if the spot doesn't call for a stunt he'll still throw down the hardest tricks he can think of. He won't stop until he's landed them, even with no camera around to capture it. Just be grateful Craig was there to capture this session, at the new Rampit Skatepark in Melbourne. But this is only a minute – he can go all night at this place, or any place for that matter. And then there's his Seven Rats part, which is a whole different ball park...... Read More...

BuddyTour 2010

What follows is excerpts from a 30 page essay I wrote about Ian's and my mini-tour in December 2010. I've excluded some important, memorable events for brevity's sake involving Toy Story 3, a penis-obsessed Olympic athlete, Mike Lilly, and somebody pepper-spraying a sandwich. It is partly about rollerblading, but mostly a journal I kept while I was traveling. There are a few manipulations of time, but nothing drastic. Some paragraphs were literally copied and pasted out of context so it's not the most cohesive, fluent writing style. Deal with it. ... Read More...
