Paradise Road Show is happening next weekend. It's their second year of production and this round is going to be bigger and badder then ever. Alsoooo, I'm hosting the official afterparty so you suck and you're a lozer if you don't come!! See you soon California.
I landed in LA and within a couple hours, I found myself in some weird dudes bedroom that was set-up like a recording studio along side the "Chopper Hoes," Kahli Smith and Melissa of Moldie Goldies. Turns out, DicE Magazine wanted to interview my buds for their new Podcast because Melissa recently had a couple-page write up (and made the cover) in the newest issue of their mag. I got dragged along but ended up having a pretty fun night and got to know the dudes from DicE a little bit better - they crazy. Anyway, the episode got a lot of heat from the social media activists out there, but hey, maybe you should listen to it yourself and make your own opinions!
You can listen to it for free on iTunes HERE - S1E3. Viewed discretion advised...
I'm taking off tomorrow for a much needed 15 days of chillin in Mexicooooo. After that I'll be in Toronto over Christmas. Hit me up if you're in that area! Home on the 30th byeeeee.
Actually, I'll still be on my computer like the entire time cus I'm a workaholic but ya! Merry Christmas y'all xo.
My flights are all booked to head down to Paradise Road Show - January 20/21st at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs. My buds Lana MacNaughton, Adri Law & Chase Stopnik put this show on and it's a super tight-nit, family friendly, good-ol'-times motorcycle and hot rod show. All vehicles are pre 70s and there's a ton of amazing stuff that comes from all over the place. You can submit your car or bike through their website here.
Moto photographer dude Blaine Connolly and I put together an article from our 12 hour USA trip to the Oyster Run. I just got the news that it'll be ran in the next issue of American Iron... Keep an eye out and let me know if you see it cus I'll need to grab a copy too!
Zach Iddings came out to the Strangers Paradise house a couple weeks ago in Joshua Tree to put together this video of what exact we do out there - get weird.
A couple weeks ago I rode my chopper down to Seattle and back in a day to shoot Thom Jones (@semigoods) '45 Magnum he built for Born Free 9. This Winter issue was just released and I'm pretty stoked on how it turned out. Thom really doesn't hold back in his interview and I love that shit. Take a look and pick up a copy at any Chapters/Indigo/Wal-Mart/London Drugs etc etc.... You can also buy an online version through their site: HERE.
~~In this issue there is also a 10 page article on The Dream Roll written by an attendee from Montreal. It looks awesome and there's a couple shots of my dumb face so don't miss it!! ~~
On October 29th, the TENTH High Noon Scramble went down at the end of # 6 road: The Richmond Dunes. The race is a multiple-lap loop around some sketchy obstacles, jumps, hill climbs, and burms. The categories include mono shock and vintage. Us spectators don't really care too much about all that though, we just love watching these dudes dress up and eat shit in the sand. Overall, some highlights included:
- Mike Babs Goul head costume
- Nicks Maico 250
- The EZ TV Broadcast crew
- The trike dude that smashed into Elliots new truck
- Keddie lighting off a firework when he won runner-up
- The snowmobile over-heating and then proceeding to hit the jump over and over again
- The beer pong crew
- Myk Roc
- The dude who didn't bring a costume and was forced into riding in his underwear
- Bri's Filth Mode cookies
- Some random girl who gave me a cheddar smokey
- The winners belt
- Curtis wresting the winner (WWE style)
All in all, the event was awesome as it is every year. The new belt that has been made for future years will be up for grabs next Halloween season... Who will take it next time!!?? For now, here's some 35mm film photos I shot on my Olympus Stylus:
I am home!! After a crazy busy 12 days in the California and Nevada desert, I am home. We looped Death Valley, hit Vegas last minute, attended Babes Ride Out and rode across California. I am currently working on a story for HOG Magazine about the whole trip, but for now here is a recap from the ladies at Babes Ride Out: http://babesrideout.com/blog/2017/10/26/babes-ride-out-5-event-recap?mc_cid=ac0a07d420&mc_eid=235d49f152
