During my trip to Whistler, I was lucky to get to see the band Metric!! Instantly Emily Haines melted my heart with her powerful voice and stabbed me with her sharp lyrics. Her stage presents was incredible, the hottest dance moves I have seen!! My sidepipe pretty much ripped out of my stretch denim! I don't want to sound like a broken record, but thank you Emily for making your music, and sharing your outlook on life!! I LOVE YOU..

On Wednesday night I got the chance to see two fucking amazing bands in Portland! The Whip and my personal favorite Late of the Pier. Two young bands that are going to cut down any person in the crowd who gets to listen to their musical genius. I was amazed by their talent! It quickly turned into a dance party and rugs were cut!! I love theses guys!! Thank you for making music!! The world is a better place with it!!!

I received an Ichat yesterday while sitting at my desk at work from one of my good friends Brent! He informed me that one of my favorite artist right now was having a show at Upper Playground in Portland, It made my day! I had been emailing with this artist back and forth to do some work for our new line coming out, and now I would get to meet him in person and get a in depth look of his work. Get to learn what inspires him, what twisted fucked up thoughts help create such mind blowing pieces! I mean from the colors, to the creatures and monsters! He is a genius. So as I walk in the show, I see a taller gentlemen rocking a faded, torn up Mercyful Fate shirt, and instantly knew that he was the man himself, Skinner! We chatted for a bit, and then he pointed to a box against the wall and told me to grab a pair of the glasses, that this shit was 3D!! That's right 3D! Shit was amazing! So all in all, it was an insane show, by a mellow, super humble, cool ass mother fucker! Here are some of his works!! Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!!

Earlier this month the boys and I ventured over to Spain to enjoy some of the finer things in life. Shredding the peaks of La Molina, skating the marble of Barcelona, eating tapas, drinking red wine, and getting wild in the streets till the sun came up. I fell in love with the city instantly! There is so much history and culture, gothic churches, just beauty every where you look. While we were there we rented go cars, thrashed a rental car, I got to stick my feet in the waters of the Mediterranean, and watched one of the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. It is a true paradise. I could say that it's my "Kingdom of Heaven". Enjoy!!
