The crew from Brixton made their annual pilgrimage to Austin, Texas for SXSW and brought back a blog load of photos to prove it. If you’d like to see what they (Jason Lee, Jason Augustine, Adam Warren, Bob Hoste & David Stoddard) saw, click the following links for pretty close to all of it (in four parts). Part I, Part II, Part III, Party IV.
Want to ride it, too? Guess you’ll have to wait for the iOS version of the board in game form or something like that. All we can say is we hope these celebrities are getting paid. For more check out HUVrtech.com.

While in Sydney, Australia for the run up to the Vans Bowl-A-Rama Tony Hawk took some time to talk to the media about how the Olympics need skateboarding more than skateboarding needs the Olympics. Wise words from a man who knows.
Yes, apparently Late Night With David Letterman is still on and as is the custom he’s interviewing Olympic gold medalists. Here he talks to halfpipe gold medalist Kaitlyn Farrington. If you need to know anything else, watch. Oh, and if you want to see Sage Kotsenburg utter the first words we’ve ever heard him speak, follow the jump. [click to continue…]
Yobeat nails it down on the Shaun White Slopestyle pullout interview. Our faces are cracking. “Afroman is my away message.”
How is Shaun White preparing for the Olympic Games? He took to Twitter to show that he’s been dining on a local delicacy saying: “Food in Russia is amazing! #McSochi” Wonder if this is part of a “viral marketing” campaign? Might as well get paid to eat, too.
Really don’t know how we missed this one. Maybe it’s because we never watch Larry King Now. But 48 Block alerted us to this interesting interview with Rob Dyrdek. In the interview we realized that there is no getting around it: Rob Dyrdek lives his life and makes things happen.

While Scotty Lago was battling away in the Mammoth Mountain superpipe for a spot on the 2014 US Olympic snowboard team, his “long-time girlfriend” Bridget Brunet (real name, apparently) was busy participating in the Miss New Hampshire USA pageant in Manchester, New Hampshire.
NewHampshire.com couldn’t have been much blunter with their coverage:
While Brunet was winning the Miss New Hampshire USA crown, her longtime boyfriend, snowboarder Scotty Lago, fell short of the scores needed to put him on the four-man halfpipe Olympic Snowboarding Team nominated by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Sunday afternoon at the conclusion of the Sprint U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix in Mammoth Falls, Calif.
Well, at least they have something to celebrate!
We’re no fans of Justin Bieber, however, when the kid had his house searched and violated by nearly a dozen LA County Sheriff’s officers last week simply because the Biebs was accused of “throwing eggs at a neighbor’s house,” we’re glad he’s left SoCal and getting in some quality shred time at Aspen. Seriously. We’re living in a total police state these days. It’s crazy!
Ken Block has Hoonagan’d out a new Ford F-150 Raptor for winter driving. We’re not too into those big green letters on the sides, but if someone could cover those up, we’d be down to take a test drive. . . sure we would.
