    Ohhhh I want it! I just got a new laptop and have to start my sticker collection again! I ripped my Jagermeister sticker to bits trying to transfer it over! 😥

    A booooooom sticker would be a zillion times cooler than a jager one!

  • what do we win?

    • a thick envelope of booooooom stickers! (two prizes)

  • Just two winners? Good lawd!!! How ’bout I give you fiddy cents and you put one sticker and two used sticker backs in my hand?

  • gradfilm? Can we see it?

  • ya i just might put it online

  • Any chance of a competition I can enter that doesn’t involve Facebook? I don’t have that and though the pull of a Booooooom sticker is strong I won’t be joining any time… or how about a swap-shop? Just think of all the radness you’d receive in the post. I’ll start you off by sending you beans; you can send me send a sticker…
    Chris Micro- What you got to swap?

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
