A visit with Sage Vaughn for (CHOCOLATE)RED

I recently had the opportunity to visit Sage Vaughn at his Pasadena studio to chat about skateboarding, his work and what it means to give back. Have a look at the video I shot and cut along with some photos I snapped below. Check out his beautiful Chocolate(RED) board and pick one up to support (RED) in their quest to end AIDS.

Conversations with Myself

The photograph below was taken last Summer. It captures what I believe to be three generations (I’m telling you but I’m also showing you because I am not certain)…The New Yorker cover is what I believe to be three generations. I’m more sure of the cartoon than I am of my own photograph.

Crailtap’s Annual Softball Tournament

The match ups may not have been “fair” but neither is life. Balls were dropped, skin was lost and real jocks revealed at this years Crailtap Softball Tournament. Everyone gave it their all in an effort to claim the title and in the end a champion was crowned in unbelievable fashion…Congrats goes to the Big Schlaussages’ for taking home the big win.
