Agenda Adds Live Music To The Mix

by The Editors on July 18, 2017

We didn’t attend Agenda. In fact, we haven’t been to one of the shows for what seems like years now (2014 it seems), but truth up, no one called to say they missed us so guess we’re all good. Luckily, LA Weekly went this year so we got the word on this year’s summer Agenda show from an outside source. Which is a good thing every once in a while.

Here’s a sample of what LA Weekly’s Ivan Fernandez had to share:

The layout was such that everyone had to walk through the pop-up shops area first before arriving to either music stage. That’s probably why most of the people arriving to watch the Beat Junkies were dressed in new shirts branded with cartoon characters, or sporting new pairs of limited-edition kicks imported from Japan, or strapped with giant novelty backpacks large enough to carry three average-sized toddlers.

Kind of bummed we missed Tyler. . . again, but don’t think we missed much else. Click the link for the rest.

Kelly Slater: Ouch, My Foot Is Broken

by The Editors on July 16, 2017

Man down, man down! Seems things aren’t all grand at the piss beer open in South Africa.
We were sad to see that the Great One had a little trouble in the barrel. Apparently,
these things happen to the best of them.

 

You ever folded your entire foot backwards? If you try it sometime, this is what it might look like. I pulled into a barrel this morning and the whitewash bounced the board back into my foot as I hit the closeout, taking all the pressure into the metatarsals. Kinda like smashing my foot with a big hammer as hard as I can. Sorta feels like I’m giving birth out of my foot right now! I’m guessing surgery and 6 week holiday is in order. Not looking forward to 30 hour flight home before surgery though. Ouch! It sucks but so many people deal with such horrible things around this world everyday that a broken foot is pretty minor in the scheme of things. Sometimes a bad thing is a good thing. I’ll make the best of my time off. #ThatsGonnaLeaveAMark #INeedElephantTranquilizers

Marzo’s Bookkeeper Lands In Jail

by The Editors on July 13, 2017

Felicidad Alcon Rivera, a bookkeeper convicted of embezzling more than $373,000 from Clay Marzo and his mother has been sentenced to two years and 11 months in prison and must make restitution to the Marzos, according to story on Maui Now.

Rivera was indicted on 13 counts of wire fraud in October of 2016 in connection with her work as a bookkeeper for Marzo and his mother.  That complaint alleged that Rivera wrote herself 193 checks over six-and-a-half years from the accounts of Marzo and his mother.

It will probably take a while for Clay and his mom to get their money back, but it’s good to see justice served.

When you think of all the crime going down in the city of San Francisco on July 11, 2017 it’s good to know that the San Francisco Police Department would allow so many of their officers to hang out a catch all the action at Dolores Park.
