fukkin' thrashcore, peeps!

ironxhanger ©

from left to right:
secret seven / fxpxo split seven inch (moo cow records), secret 7 / jahilia split seven inch (thrash steady syndicate) and xsecret 7x - play fast like there is no tomorrow 7" (625 records).

secret seven is one of the most legendary hardcore thrash bands in singapura! they were only around from the late 90's until the early millenium. their shows were always chaotic, tight and fun! in september 2002, their drummer, syed razkin a.k.a arabpunk past away in a tragic motorcycle accident on his way to work (if i am not mistaken) and the record on 625 was dedicated to him. god bless his soul. he was such a humble and gentle guy.

this band was one of my favourite skate thrash band from singapura. too bad they are no longer around. like they always say, when the band reaches their peak, they always disband. i heard they have a full length vinyl lp but i'm not really too sure about that. if any of you guys out there know about it, please hit me up here. thanks!

r.i.p xsecret sevenx, my out most respect to you guys! salute!

below is a spilt seven inch from two legendary bands, no comply and xbrainiax (fatal apathy / six two five / i deal records and to live a lie). both bands are from the u.s of a and no comply plays harsh skate thrash while xbrainiax plays power violence. the have tons more records out but i do not have the moolah to score them. oh well...

god made a skateboarder...

watch this shit!

superbowl "god made a farmer" paul harvey commercial re imagined. if you haven't seen the original ram trucks superbowl commercial check it right here

all photos by ryan young check more of his work here. script by taylor kennedy and joel jutagir.

- and on the eighth day, god looked down on his concrete paradise and said, "i need a caretaker." so god made a skateboarder.

god said, "i need somebody willing to get up at the crack of noon, eyes bloodshot from the night before, call in sick from work, not stretch, then go to the spot and stay well past midnight repeatedly trying for that one miraculous trick." so god made a skateboarder.

god said, "i need somebody willing to try a flip trick down a gap all day, get a swellbow the size of a golf ball wipe the sweat from their eyes and say "i'll get it tomorrow" i need somebody stealthy enough to stake out a spot, sneak past security, only to arrive on the scene and make more noise than a lumber yard. who has more superstitions than an old wive, never says the words last try, counts the number of cracks in the ground, knocks on wood, then will turn and huck themselves down a set of stairs without so much as a second glance, "so god made a skateboarder"

god said, i need somebody strong enough to live off 99 cent burritos, pizza, baconators and other fatty foods, while remaining skinny enough to squeeze through the narrowest of fence poles.

it had to be somebody who'd grind straight and carve corners, somebody who'd rip, flip, get a clip, eat a bag of shrooms and strip and curse and bitch, bust tre's and skate all day. somebody who'd bind a crew together with the promise of five dollars if they pull it next try, then back it up with a double or nothing, then sigh and reply with smiling eyes when his homie says he's got it right here - you got this shit! "so god made a skateboarder"

welcome back to final day of john cardiel week. if you missed day 1’s collection of old cards interviews or day 2's anti hero & spitfire ad archive or day 3's waffle when-sday with john's cover and video gallery or day 4's interview with patrick o'dell about the making of the cardiel epicly later'd episodes then you should definitely go back and check those out first.

normally for our five favorites videos we follow riders to their favorite hangouts but this week for the 5th and final day of john cardiel's week we went a different route and took a cruise around san francisco with john's anti hero teammate / friend and one of the funniest guys in skateboarding, frank gerwer, to look at some of his favorite cardiel skatespots around sf.

during the hot rod craze of the 60's, no one made more of impact on popular culture than legendary car customizer ed "big daddy" roth! while ed toured the country with his wild fiberglass showcars, fans would line up for original roth monster t-shirts and water decals. rat fink, big daddy's fly-infested alter ego and trademark soon became roth's most popular monster. the kooks at funko thought you might dig your very own rat fink wacky wobbler to hang out with. this pesky little rodent will help dress-up any china cabinet, garage, bathroom, printer or dashboard!
