Shaun White Joins The Ladies Of The Canyon

by The Editors on December 11, 2017

It is being reported that Shaun White (who was recently selling most of his homes) has purchased half of a “micro-compound” tucked into Laurel Canyon and formerly owned by “celebrated film, television and Broadway composer and lyricist Marc Shaiman“, according to story in Variety.

. . . property records show a corporate entity linked to two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White purchased a 50% undivided interest in the property. Unconfirmed scuttlebutt on the celebrity real estate street is the other half interest was acquired, via blind trust, by the ginger-haired snowboarder’s fashion-savvy musician girlfriend Sarah Barthel, one half of the electro-pop duo Phantogram.

The place reportedly features a “total of 4,304-square-feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 full and 2 half bathrooms divided between two residences and a soundproofed recording studio.”  Sounds like Mr. White is finally settling down in what looks to be an epic, peaceful spot within striking distance of Hollywood. Nice.

We didn’t really get this whole “pivot to video” comedy attempt exactly. If someone could maybe let us know what “Esquire” is it might help. Anyone?

Bunker77: Bunker Spreckels Bio Trailer

by The Editors on October 31, 2017

We’ve been waiting for this Takuji Masuda film for a while now and it looks like we’re getting pretty close.

BUNKER77 is the wild true story of a young American rebel seeking freedom, love, and authenticity in a chaotic world. The film chronicles Clark Gable’s step son and heir to a sugar fortune, Bunker Spreckels. A controversial surf star from the late 60s into the 70s who pushed the limits of riding very short boards in the most critical waves of Hawaii, mentored skateboard legend Tony Alva to his world championship, and collaborated with film auteur Kenneth Anger right before his dynamic life was cut short at 27 in 1977. Opens in NYC on 10/27 & LA on 11/3!

For all the details, click the link.

Jim Jannard’s Beverly Hills Bombshelter

by The Editors on October 4, 2017

Billionaire Oakley and Red Camera founder Jim Jannard has always had a fetishist’s attention to architectural detail (and design in general) and that’s why it is so entertaining to check out his concrete and metal Beverly Hills, California home featured in Wallpaper Magazine.

Though it took five years to complete the house, the outline of the project was sketched out in just a few bold strokes: it would have a high-tech feel, bringing in some of Jannard’s product designers for the all-metal fixtures; it would take advantage of its singular locale, with multiple vantage points looking out to the sprawling urban vista; and, of course, it would be monumental, recalling a certain prehistoric rock formation in southern England.

Looks like the perfect place to wait out the days of tribulation.

Shaun White Settles Sexual Harassment Suit

by The Editors on May 17, 2017

Shaun White and former Bad Things drummer Lena Zawaideh have finally settled their differences without going to court according to a story in USA Today.

Zawaideh first sued White and his company in May 2016, alleging breach of contract for lack of payment of her $3,750 monthly retainer from September 2013 until August 2014. The original lawsuit didn’t contain any sexual harassment allegations. . . She then switched attorneys and filed an amended complaint in August that added the sexual harassment claims in detail with screen shots of alleged text messages from White attached as exhibits. It sought punitive and compensatory damages, including lost wages.

When the suit was filed last August, Shaun said he would defend against the charges  “vigorously in court,” apparently, he changed his mind. No details were released on exactly what the settlement was, but we’re guessing Zawaideh got money in exchange for dropping her case. Isn’t that how it usually works?
