So I had an idea. Last year was up and down a bit, when you’re freelance, its very easy to sleep in until noon, wack a movie on, walk around in your pajamas and just eat cornflakes all day. There were definitely a couple of days that felt like that.
This year I feel like I need to push myself and to stay motivated. I’ve decided to make $100 every day in 2017. It can be from selling something on Ebay, making a skateboard graphic for someone, or going and working in a coal mine, doesn’t matter. That will be my motivation when I wake up, don’t slack off until you’ve achieved that goal. Well I’ve done it every day so far, only 360 more to go, how hard can it be? If I miss a day for any reason then I have to make it up the next day, if I make $3000 one day, it doesn’t matter, I still have to go back the next day and make $100.
I did have a couple of projects that I had worked on last year that needed invoicing, a Magenta board, so that was my first invoice. Then I sold some cabin prints, so that helped. I’ve been on a mission though, pitching stuff to people, finishing projects that I’ve slacked on. It feels good, I’ll keep you posted.
In a few hours these words will be irrelevant.
The country that I live in will have elected Hilary Clinton or Donald Trump as their President.
I write these words sat on my bed in Eagle Rock, East Los Angeles, wondering how it came to this. My wife is upset, crying in fact, let down that as a nation it has come down to Donald Trump being a candidate for presidency. We’ve seen this wretched thing transpire over the past few months and its been awful. She may have given herself an ulcer, sick with worry. Can we sue the government for that? Or the Republican party?
Bernie Sanders was always our favorite, a real agent of change for the better, a working class lad, who understands the people, not a corrupt career politician in bed with the banks and oil companies, not a billionaire idiot who’s only answer to everything is to shout meaningless nonsense and degrade women, different races, and the disabled.
So thats what it has come down to. Trump or Hilary. In a few hours we will know. We hope to god that Hilary wins because Trump seems like a villain from Sin City to me. Its like Frank Miller made him up or something. Nobody can really be that bigoted, egotistical, and vile in real life can they? Well, apparently they can, and half the country thinks he’d make a good president.
I’m not going to leave the country if this idiot wins. I’m not going anywhere.
I love you Britain, but you let me down today.
I saw a glipse of this in the riots of 2011, when I was getting ready to leave.
Scum crept out of the gutters and burnt down family owned businesses and looted shops all across London.
It was saddening, that or once great nation and the country where I grew up stooped to that level.
Today we did it again.
The silly upper class toffs that run this country have whipped the plebs into such a frenzy that they’ve gotten together and voted us out of the EU.
Immigrants were blamed, they always are, thats what the upper class Etonians threaten the working classes with “They’re going to take your jobs” (Not out jobs, running the country, cutting benefits of the needy, hiding money in off shore accounts, claiming outrageous amounts of expenses, but your job in the factory)
Well done idiots. The pound just hit the lowest its been since 1985 within moments of this news happening. This is just the beginning.
Seems like it’s all getting a little easier, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, blogs, tumblr, snapchat all the rest of it. I just opened this on my phone and this will be my first phone post. Weird. If it works alright maybe I’ll post a little more often.
Anyway. We just announced out new video. Bath Salts.
Here’s the trailer.
Been a while. Here are some direct links to recent radio shows that I’ve done.
My friend Jason writes for Vice UK, strangely he’s not a sarcastic 20 year old who writes about how great drugs are or how boring all music is or how he’s totally over everything like most other Vice writers. He’s a real skateboarder, and so I agreed to do an interview with him. My friend Jerome was over in L.A. a few months ago and we shot these photo’s, they were going to get used for something else, but we used em for this instead. Thanks all that helped out on this.
Painted a mural at Active Burbank for Altamont a couple of years ago, popped in to see them today and to my suprise they haven’t painted over it yet. Hyped.
