Print is dead. Long live print.


Public service Announcement: Monster Children Sydney has moved. You can now leave flaming paper bags of shit at our new address, 1 block down the road.

TOP 7 FREEBIES FROM AGENDA LONG BEACH

More like Agenda Long Day, am I right? “Walking the show” (industry speak for aimlessly wondering from booth to booth looking for free shit) really takes it’s toll on the calves. I spent the car trip to Agenda fantasizing about all the cool stuff I was gonna get my little mitts on and take home, complimentary.

THAT ONE THURSDAY

This is what you (and I) missed out on yesterday. Maybe you didn’t miss out on this gold. Maybe you surfed this until your legs were in a gelatine like state and you were as dehydrated as a salted prune in the Gobi Desert. Maybe you chucked a few snaps of your empty line up onto Instagram.  And…

Another hypnotic Skeleton Bay clip to mess with your head. “You can only really catch one or two waves in the time that you paddle out, because the current is so hectic. So you wait for a set, as soon as you see the set, paddle out, catch the set, ride the wave for pretty much a…

No Spring Chicken Record Review: U2′s ‘ZOOROPA’

Before you say a word, anyone who hates this record is a poser. I’m not going to bang the drum for U2, 1994–2014 (which will piss off about eight people), and I’ll admit I’m extraordinarily stoned right now, but I can’t discredit this album.

On The Road. Last Days: Panama City, FLA
