LENS: KEATEN ABBOTT
The landscapes that Keaten Abbott captures are nothing short of breathtaking. His images make you feel like you are a million miles away, yet somehow at home at the very same time. MC contributor Kelton Woodburn asked him for some insight behind the shots.
SIDE STREETS: DOLAN STEARNS
In my opinion Dolan Stearns is doing some of the most outrages shit on a skateboard. He’s going about it in a completely different perspective, which is really interesting to watch, and is jaw dropping when you realize how dangerous some of the tricks are he pulls off.
Monster Children Photo Annual On Sale Now
The 2014 Monster Children Photo Annual kicks ass, so don’t turn your back on it and bend over because it will definitely punt you square in the caboose with its steel-toed winkle-pickers. Ha ha. No but seriously, buy it.

For two days in October 2014 some of the best skateboarders from East and West were connected to share their passion on the top of the world at Helsinki Airport. This first-ever skate session was hosted by Arto Saari and his world-class crew.
WATCH: IN OUR NATURE
Taking skateboarding out of it’s typical context and taking it to a Tetanus minefield. This rusty as hell ramp sets the perfect backdrop for destruction, loud music and of course, fire.
PHOTO ZINES BY JAMIE PARKHURST
In a world of plenty, it’s nice to discover something so limited. Photographer Jamie Parkhurst has created two photo zines and produced only 20 editions of each. Which makes it super limited. Check out some images here.
Neal Purchase Jr – A ‘Single’ Moment
Neal Purchase Jr wears a lot of hats, because he doesn’t want to get sunburnt, duh.
Austin City Limits 2014 – Morgan Maassen
I recently found myself in the middle of America, at 3pm, sweating profusely, eating a pulled pork sandwich, listening to Zedd blast thousands of fans with throbbing house music.
Drink For Free (if you’re me) at Pilgrim.
Many years ago, I tended bar with a chap named David Sharry. He was a nice fellow and, because of our mutual interest in historical polytheistic religious traditions and the movie Ernest Goes to Jail, we became friends. These days, David is an entrepreneur, having opened bars and eateries across Melbourne, Sydney, and even the…

Having just wrapped up his month long Artist Residency in Byron Bay, American painter Ramsey Dau has opened his first Australian exhibition at the new Mild Manners Project Gallery (M.M.P.G ) in Sydney.
‘We Tell Ourselves Stories In Order to Live’ the first and only documentary about Joan Didion.
They’re making a documentary about my favorite writer, Joan Didion. If you don’t know who that is, you should check her out–she’s brilliant. I’m such a dork for this woman, I even have her name tattooed on me… accompanied by a shameful and totally incongruous zombie with huge boobs. What can I say? I was…

PRINT AINT DEAD: Girls, Jim Joe, and Other Things by Zach Lewis
Starting a zine review was the worst idea ever. Millions of mags are arriving in the mail and I’m falling behind on reviewing them. If you’ve sent me something and you haven’t seen it here, it’s not because you suck–it’s coz I suck; it’s not you, it’s me. I’ll get around to you eventually, or…
