Shaun White Reads His Life Story

by The Editors on February 6, 2018

Ever wondered just how Shaun White transformed himself from a cute little snowboard kid sessioning the Encinitas YMCA miniramp everyday into a resort-owning, rock and rolling business titan with Olympic and ESPN gold medals swinging from his neck? Well, this fall Mr. White will tell it all in his own words and with his own voice as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt releases his as-yet-untitled memoir on Audible.com. Here’s their pitch:

The memoir will be a radical playbook on how to become a champion. A 3-time Olympian and repeat gold-medalist, and winner of an unprecedented 23 X-Games medals, Shaun White has been a fighter and a pioneer throughout his life, overcoming a congenital heart defect, periodic bouts of depression, and an establishment that didn’t take his sport seriously—until he became a legend and a leader whom everyone had to follow. It will be co-written with Neil Strauss, New York Times bestselling author of The Game.

Why shouldn’t Shaun’s memoir be written by the same guy who wrote the book on pick-up artists and Marilyn Manson’s autobiography, and Jenna Jameson’s How To Make Love Like a Porn Star). Oh, we’re looking forward to this one. For all the official details, please follow the jump.

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.

On Saturday, November 11, 2017 A Walk On Water (a California-based nonprofit surf therapy organization) held a day of surf therapy for more than 115 special needs children and adults along with their families at Malibu’s Surfrider Beach. The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kedis and pro surfer Courtney Conlogue even showed up for the celebration.

Over 115+ athletes participated in surf therapy heats, 200 volunteers and 40 experienced instructors who helped them safely navigate the waves and guided them safely in and out of the ocean. Families, supporters, partners and media filled the beach to cheer on these athletes as they rode some of the most ideal waves and experienced the most beautiful weather conditions than we could’ve imagined. . . The athletes along with their families enjoyed a day of positive energy, cheers, some tears of happiness, restoration and experienced the true healing powers of the ocean.

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.
