Warped Tour 2013

The last couple of Warped announcements have been disappointing.

Nonetheless, I’m stoked for these bands :

Defeater (and Alcoa)
The Story So Far
I See Stars
Stick To Your Guns
The Wonder Years
Mac Lethal
Psycho White

Let me know if I missed anyone, or let me know who you’re stoked for.


I’m really excited to see this, a short film about Jacob Bannon of Converge, which debuts tomorrow.

Sorry for all the links. I don’t know how to post multiple vids. If you do then inform me, thanks. 


Awkward shot, but this is the table I’m going to customize. Everything ON the table (minus the X-Acto and cutting pad) will soon be PART OF the table. #art #DIY #creative (Taken with Instagram at The New Apartment)

Demise Of Hollywood - Run For It Marty

My boys in DOH put out a video. I’m way late on posting it.

Dig it..

The first set was pictures of the process, and this is the result.

Katie did an awesome job. I’m way stoked on how it came out. I even had her use floss to get that old school, punk, DIY vibe. (And the floss looks cool) I couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

     The iron on patch on the inside is my secret little gem. People who own the vinyl copy of Hot Sauce Committee Part Two by the Beastie Boys will recognize it (and people who bought the CD will recognize the knight from the album art). It is a little bonus gift that comes with the vinyl, and I love it. I put it on the inside because I didn’t think you would be able to see it on the outside, and I’m a nerd for little hidden secrets, and small touches and I feel like this has that going for it. Beasties for life.

As you saw before Katie cross-stitched a straight edge patch for me to apply to my jacket. Well since she’s so crafty and she did all the hard work on the actual patch I felt it necessary for her to continue that trend and sew the patch to my jacket for me. Here is the process..


Doesn’t get any more hardcore than hand stitched straight-edge Xs…

Cross stitched these babies myself for Zachary’s jacket. :] I’m proud.

Straight. Fuckin’. Edge.
Thanks Baby!
P.S. To each their own.
