Accelerated Curves

Awake and jazzed after an in haus evening with Rich Pavel or as he put it, 'you can't dance with the bride at two weddings.' Various Coopers kine were consumed as a nod to NPJr. and maybe Parko for burning billabong employees on logoless Toby-fish. RB, Stevie, both Lynches and Simmons. Wicked and crucial design lesson!

Winter XCEL rubber back in stock: 6/5/4 and 5/4/3's, 5-7mm boots and gloves. Should be some fun waves in the morning with air temps in the 50's tomorrow. Give Thanks.

Andreini "Vaqueros de las Olas" and a mixed bag of eggs and round tail quad/fish from Fineline in transit today. Should be here late next week.

The Horse Was Too Wild

Two super-sweet shorts shown together at the Film Forum by French director and inventer of the board game RISK Albert Lamorisse; White Mane (1953) and The Red Balloon (1956). Crin Blanc (above) an end of innocence riff about a boy and a wild white horse shot in the south of France with seaside equestrian ecstacies and whimisical "vaqueros de las olas" ending. Andreini would approve!

Strangely reminscent of Gonz's 1999 drawing for Keith Hufnagel's Real model featuring the text, 'The Horse Was Too Wild.'

Red Balloons were given to all children after the screening. Trippy...

Rumor has it Rich 'Toby' Pavel will be in haus tomorrow after 7pm but you know how these things go...

When you're out in the country, in the old estates, and you see the country people walking to church or rocking in their hammocks or drinking in the little bars, you don't think it's that kind of country. But every country is that kind of country.
