Stay Wild Magazine – Kickstarter

Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…

84: Music of 2013

Another year in the books and a ton of great music to celebrate: 2013 was a stellar year across genres, and as always it was hard to keep up with everything and make the time to give the repeat in-depth listens these releases warranted. Top highlights for me include Montreal’s Bummer who released 2 EPs of flawless modern punk, Hamilton’s Jessy Lanza and her impeccable debut LP on Hyperdub entitled Pull My Hair Back, Alpinist sideproject Jungbluth and their relentless LP Part Ache, Brighter Arrows and their gripping take on post hardcore w/ Dreamliner, and Denzel Curry with his dark narration of youth culture via N64. Above and after the jump and a random assortment of tunes that stayed on rotation and will carry in to 2014… give a listen and hopefully there’s something new here for you.

Carhartt WIP Fall/Winter 2013 Video Lookbook

Always one of our favourites every season, here’s a look at Carhartt WIP‘s f/w collection in the video format. Maybe coming off a bit bright for a f/w collection (and I don’t mess with yellow ever, regardless), the line is still guaranteed tight, and I would love to pick up a WIP vest, as the mainline Carhartt one is a day-in-day-out staple for me during the colder months. Collection drops soon so save yr web dollars.
