Thomas sent us an email over the weekend about the trailer for his new 21 min film Cuatro Senous Pequenos. Of course we don't work over the weekend so we were a little slow on the uptake with this one. Anyway, check it out - the full 21 min clip will appear on the UM YEAH Vimeo channel sometime in July. We like how Thomas is loose with deadlines...keeps em all guessing.
A few of us here in the MC office had the pleasure of surfing this spot for a few days last year while on a shoot in Mexico. Ed from Quality Peoples just dropped this beautiful piece - nothing like reminding us in Australia winter is definitely setting in.
New Zealand's last hope...... Throw him a few coins and get him back on the QS after his sponsor went dry on the pay cheques.
Everyone's Australian buddy living in LA, Ben Baretto, is having a show at The Popular Workshop in San Francisco, and it opens this Friday. You might remember him from our Issue 37 mini feature on him, you may also remember his recent exhibition in Sydney. Now you know, there's no excuses...head along if you're around these ways. All info here.
These two birds have been talking about doing this little project since they traveled central and south America as single girls breaking hearts in El Salvador and Uruguay. Hoarding all the homewares and fabric they could rummage, finally they got out the sewing machines, became housewives, got off the bottle and created an on-line shop where you can buy such fabric pieces rearranged as pillows, blankets and all the other home-like stuff you may need. Dos Ombré may be a tax write-off and a way to fuel their travels, but at least they got off the booze eh. Well done girls.
Then you should head down to the final O'Neill 60 Years Of Innovation Art tour event.

Exhibition opens 6:30pm, Friday 2nd November, Rittenhouse Building, cnr Pacific Avenue and Church Street, downtown Santa Cruz.
A bunch of good blokes we know have just put the new Corona Extra clip live. Photographed by our own Hollywood and directed by Taylor Steele, this nice piece features a few familiar faces that have graced our pages before. Song - "Sinking Sun," by Australia's MT WARNING.
Corona has just launched their La Casa Artists Residency program. Billed as a space where all creative types can paint, record music, surf out front, sip on beer or simply do nothing and relax, all content is directed by MC buddy Taylor Steele. Another long time friend of MC, Evan Hecox, is currently their artist in residence and his clip is apparently not far off. Check out the teaser vid here.
