The Hundreds Gets Grizzly

by The Editors on May 5, 2017

The Hundreds and Grizzly Griptape introduces its second collaboration offering, rooted in friendship and mutual respect between both brands and feature illustrations done by prolific graffiti artist, illustrator, and war photographer KC Ortiz.

“The pieces all stand alone but there is a narrative connecting all the work with Adam and Grizzly’s adventure against the system. They are two buddies thrown into situations out of their control, over and over (like any good buddy franchise), and they are able to team up together and beat their enemies in their own style and terms, like true rebels do,” Ortiz said of the collection.

For the official word from The Hundreds, please follow the jump.

Neal Hendrix’s Twitter Feed Hijacked?

by The Editors on April 27, 2017

Checking in on Twitter this morning and noticed that it appears that a woman named “Joan Dickinson” who is apparently “looking for a man” has hijacked skateboarder Neal Hendrix’s verified Twitter account. One day it’s street photos from Hendrix’s trip to Japan and lost baggage on the way to Rio, and now it’s this:

Sadly, we can’t even ask Neal what’s up, because we only have his Twitter feed. . . Neal, please let us know what’s up? Is this a new sponsorship deal, a stolen password, gender reassignment?

Editors’ Update (3:07 PM April 27, 2017): After a short time off the Twitter air, Neal was back up with the following message:


Good to know it’s possible to get things fixed so quickly on Twitter. Guess that’s what comes with being verified.
