Can I have a mailing address for you?
thanks -pete koff
I’m not sure who it is that runs this blog and writes the posts, but I wanted to commend you on what you do. I don’t want to come off sounding one-sided or narrow minded, but this is one of the few skate-related blogs I visit where the opinions of the writer (whoever you are) and the opinions of myself line up almost perfectly. I always find it interesting to hear what you have to say, and the fact that the posts are always well written is an added bonus.
We’re promoting the digital release of the SXSW award-winning skateboard documentary, Dragonslayer.
Dragonslayer is the portrait of southern California skateboarding legend Josh “Skreech” Sandoval set to a soundtrack from indie-rock labels Mexican Summer and Kemado Records — including Dungen, Thee Oh Sees, Jacuzzi Boys, and many more. A master of skating abandoned pools, broken-down skate parks, and random pick-up competitions, Skreech is a guy who lives outside the bounds of mainstream suburban life with a gang of outcasts that are his makeshift family. In addition to the kick-ass soundtrack, the film features beautifully-shot skateboarding footage of Skreech and other skating icons.
We’d love for you to watch Dragonslayer and help spread the word.
It had a small theatrical run, but many skaters didn’t get a chance to see it. With its recent release on iTunes and its upcoming release on VOD and other digital outlets, it will soon be available to all. And we need to make this fact known! If you’re willing to help promote it, we can certainly provide footage for your site (potentially even the first few minutes of the film) as well as giveaways, podcasts with cast and crew members, and anything else you think would appeal to your readers.
of blame for those who ignored or downplayed the abundant warning signs of Armstrong’s guilt, and giving credit to the investigators and muckrakers who have seen their worst suspicions and allegations against Armstrong spectacularly vindicated. David Carr in the New York Times and Matthew Ingram at GigaOm have argued that, in many ways, the legacy media dropped the ball while “blogs and Twitter picked up the slack,” as Ingram puts it.
Dr. Ariely said these results did not necessarily debunk the notion of connoisseurship. “Whether we can actually tell the difference between cheap and expensive wine may be less important than whether we think that we can,” he said. “We might actually experience more pleasure when drinking an expensive wine, enjoy it more, because we’re slowing down, savoring it, paying more attention to its qualities.”
Which, as it turns out, is a hallmark of connoisseurship.
Deadspin’s jaw-dropping deconstruction of the Lennay Kekua hoax on Wednesday called out a litany of top-tier news outlets for spreading the story of a grieving Heisman candidate and his beautiful girlfriend lost to leukemia. There were, of course, many others who carried stories about Te’o and Kekua, turning the fiction into a widely accepted reality.
It was a painful and embarrassing day for the mainstream sports media, doubly disheartened by the fact they were disrobed by — shame of shames! — a blog. It also broke the same week that Lance Armstrong owned up to a career full of infractions, which some observers felt were tacitly suppressed by U.S. sports journalists who were overly dubious of doping allegations against a beloved national hero.
