Exploration #6 - London Pirate Radio

Pirate radio is everywhere in London, born in the 60’s from rusting anti-aircraft towers in the mouth of the Thames. Today’s broadcasts are hidden in plain sight, transmitting from secret tower block studios via homemade rooftop antennas. We put our boots on and went exploring. Palladium Boots

If you have a really cool idea you can subtmit your design and get the chance to be printed and get $$$$ for it.

Happy Birthday is Kyle Thomas (aka King Tuff), Chris Weisman, and Ruth Garbus. They formed in November 2008 to play one show at the punk-space “Tinderbox”(RIP), in their hometown Brattleboro, Vermont. Kyle needed a band to play his new pop songs because he was too scared to play by himself. They enjoyed playing with eachother so much that they decided to keep doing it.

Kyle sings and plays lead guitar. The songs are mostly his, but the band arranges and finishes them together. He is also a painter and drawer and loves top 40, shoes, texting, comic books, etc. Ruth Garbus plays drums and sings. She also makes her own music and art. Chris Weisman plays “inverted-tuning” guitar, bass, and sings. He makes 4-track songs, enjoys reading and writing, and is a guitar teacher. Sub Pop

This year winner of The Skateboard Film Festival was the film "Indonesi'am" directed by skateboarder Sébastien Abes. Six French skaters went to Indonesia the less expected skateboard paradise and rolled around for the delight of the locals.

"This film captured so much of what we were hoping for in the International category: a foreign location, filmmakers and skateboarders from outside the United States, and a story to be told with good skateboarding in it." The Skateboard Film Festival
