McGuire's Kickstarter Tour: Route 1086, or whatever the proper name for it is, as of yesterday, is fully funded. On behalf of him and all the broke or non-broke dudes that will participate in it, I'll say "thanks," even though I'm just hoping to skate with them and hit the bar while they're in town. Expect a demo in town with some big names coming soon.
Random come-up of the month (so far), Duffy and Welsh playing country music at SXSW. I still haven't had time to read the interview past that.
Please excuse the lack of posting, I've been knee deep in 18 credits. If only I had an intern that could also update this site. Who knows? Next week is spring break. The weather looks fine, too. I know that dudes have been skating downtown (for sometime now, but what with 55 or so yesterday, it's more accessible) and AC has even been tweeting skate conditions. Still, nothing will beat a summer's night with the asphalt still radiating heat. With that in mind, read Kyle Beachy's "The Deep Seams", ruminations on the fallacy of skateparks, Midwestern June nights and David Foster Wallace. I know I jock the guy, but sometimes a dude's got to jock.
Edit: The Kyle Beachy link is fixed, a lot of days late. It's well worth the read if you already haven't stumbled upon it already. Tell me if I fuck up a link!
