SAGE VAUGHN


It is hard to separate Sage the dude from Sage Vaughn the artist. The dude is simply awesome. There are very few people around who I think could be more fun to surf and hang and talk about life and just generally bullshit with than Sage.

BETTING ON HORSES WITH FOALS

We cornered English band Foals and made them talk about lingers, pick up lines, presents and their desire of Australian Women. It may be down to convict bad girl blood, lifestyle, or something harder to define.

LIVE REVIEW: DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979

When I heard DFA 1979 broke up in 2006, I was so bummed. But at least we got that one album, I thought. By 2014, I’d long retired the hope of ever seeing them live again. And then last thursday happened. I saw them live at The Troubadour in Los Angeles.

I saw most of 20,000 Days On Earth

This movie is fucking brilliant, but before I start gushing, let me tell the story of how I came to see it before its release. It’s no secret that I’m a big Bad Seeds fan, so when I heard there was Nick Cave documentary coming out I got really excited. I hunted down the PR…

Print Ain’t Dead: Agents Provocateurs. 100 Subversive Skateboard Graphics

I was a complete pussy when I was I kid. I’m still a pussy now, but when I was a kid I was such a pussy. I was frightened of anything corruptible– especially drugs and heavy metal. It was drummed into my head early on that any and all drugs lead directly to heroin addiction…

Becoming Friends With Strangers

Sometimes I step back, take a look at a situation in my life, and simply think, ‘Fuck It.’ Other times, I open my fridge when I’m hungry, see a roll of cookie dough, and think the same thing. Then, I see Strangers have made earrings of my exact sentiments and I think, Fuck Yes!
