Monday Morning Music: Bob Mould

by The Editors on February 4, 2019

Who better to expose the surveillance state than Bob Mould with Lost Faith.

“There’s a hint of migration, a dash of border security and a whisper of government surveillance, climaxing across the multicolored canvas of an abandoned NSA listening station perched atop the highest hill in Berlin,” Bob told NPR. “But at the end of the day, it’s a high-end music video for a catchy, inspirational, uplifting pop song.”

Agreed.

The Homes Brigade: Hawk & McGill

by The Editors on January 22, 2019

Tony Hawk and Mike McGill are together again to help flat-fee real estate company Home Bay move some units. Home Bay’s CEO couldn’t be happier, according to a story on Inman.com.

Home Bay CEO and chairman Ken Potashner says the ad has caused an “explosion” in interest from consumers excited to take advantage of Home Bay’s automated process and the subsequent savings that average a little over $15,000, according to the company, which presently operates in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Texas and Colorado.

Okay. Seems like a pretty good idea. And it’s always good to see skaters act (bummer Lance couldn’t make it). Not sure if Realtor’s will go extinct or not, but we’re pretty certain no one is going to miss them.

Vans’ Snowboarding Together Forever

by The Editors on January 10, 2019

It’s always interesting to see what the brands think the kids want to see. Here is Vans’ latest short form snowboarding promo titled Together Forever.

Coming off the heels of Vans’ first full-length film LANDLINE., film director Tanner Pendleton returns this season with a short-length project featuring Vans snow team riders Jake Kuzyk, Arthur Longo, Sam Taxwood, Danimals, Pat Moore, Cole Navin, Hana Beaman, Darrell Mathes, Dillon Ojo and more. Filmed primarily on Kodak 16mm film on location in Japan, France, Russia and Finland, Together Forever follows a group of individuals-turned-family as they travel the world and do what they love most.

Apparently that’s skateboarding, snowboarding, and a little hugging. Enjoy.
