Down For This: 30 Years of Volcom

by The Editors on January 13, 2022

Not that we’re on some VeeCo kick, but they keep doing things that seem relevant to us. Not sure if that’s good or bad for the brand, but their recently released Down For This 30th anniversary edit it worth checking out.

If you remember when Volcom was the newest action brand pushing the concept of youth boarding culture, then you’re old. If you’d like to reclaim some of your youth by watching old Volcom video footage in its original format, then here are a few of the classics currently for sale online (some at ridiculous prices).

The Garden VHS
Luminous Llama VHS
Frankenplasm VHS
Computer Body VHS
The Life & Times of a Sprocking Cat VHS
Big Youth Happening Episode II DVD
The Bruce Movie DVD

The Happy New 2022 News Lister

by The Editors on January 3, 2022

It’s a New Year. Time to bury those old habits, get out the list, and start working toward the new you in 2022. Or, just grab another Indian Summer Latte and scroll through this list of stories that you should have read last year. We’d put them in order of importance, but that would take way too much time and it would eliminate the joy you’ll find discovering a story you didn’t know you wanted to read. Take it away.

Mex culture – that one-of-a-kind intersection of time-honored Latino traditions and SoCal sensibility that makes L.A. such a vibrant, artistic, and special place.. . Each one a master of their craft and a unique contributor to the fabric of L.A. culture.

Check it out while we cruise over to Lola’s for lunch.

A Post Summer News List

by The Editors on September 15, 2021

There’s a question we asked ourselves, while watching The Ultimate Surfer — Is this the pinnacle of surf entertainment? Was merging a group of washed and ok surfers with Survivor the best idea ever conceived by a man formerly employed by Oprah? Then we asked a followup: if we can seriously consider the first question, then what business do we have choosing stories for a long list of important action sporting news? The answer to the second question was is easy. We have no business. None whatsoever. Enjoy!
