Monthly Mags - The Skateboard Mag 69

I've been meaning to scan this for a few months now, best Skate Mag cover in a while.

Someone needs to get Jack Curtin hooked up with some proper sponsors, seems like if you're on DGK no one will touch you. Bummer, as he's rad.

I like Reda, maybe he should tell Atiba how to take better photos. Atiba used to kill it, now it seems like he's given up. Don't even get me started on his photoshopping.

Focus team rider John Rattray with a double page Elwood ad. Nice work.

Now this ones had a lot of people talking. How the hell do you impossible over a full size bench? I can assure you it's not the shoes.

Sierra Fellers interview (check the catch on the switch heel)





Cody McEntire interview. This guy is sick, pity he's on Think, their riders never get the coverage they deserve.



20 years of Danny Way feature.

Burke & Hare

I love celeb sightings, so imagine my excitement when i came out of Under The Stairs yesterday evening to see a full blown movie set. I wondered over to see what was being filmed and to my surprise i spotted Simon Pegg. usually it's a shitty episode or Taggart so i was pretty stoked. I managed to take a few sneaky snaps.

I did some re-search and found out that they're filming for the Burke & Hare movie. You can see Simon Pegg, The fat extra guy from Extras, and Director John Landis (Director of classic films such as The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf In London, Trading Places, Coming to America, and Michael Jacksons Thriller music video)

This is the best sighting of the year so far, almost as epic as the Peter Stringfellow sighting in Chester town centre in 1999!
