    This illustrates what skateboarding meant to me when I started it and what it can still be today, for me and anybody else, no matter if you are 30something or 12 years old. It’s more than ledge-flipinflipout. Beautiful. And hell, vancouver seems to be a pretty gnarly place!

Music Video: HVOB “The Anxiety to Please”


Part music video, part art installation, the tracks off HVOB’s latest album are something of a dialogue (or rather a “trialogue”) with Austrian artists Clemens Wolf and lichterloh. Each collaboration operates as a self-contained piece (installation, music, and video), highlighting different materials and their mesmerizing transformations. Check out the captivating experimentations for “The Anxiety to Please” off the album Trialog below!
