Washed Up at 32

Haven't been doing as much posting as I would have liked in the past couple weeks, leading me up to the decision I made the other day to do one final post. Lack of time and other internet-related diversions have made me feel like I didn't have as much to put up in the past. If you want to keep up, there's the typical locations to do so:

Instagram: mypathintrochanges

Pulling two of my favorite videos from past posts to repost. They pretty much sum things up for me a lot better than trying to post some embarassing wrap up of my thoughts.

First up: It's been posted before, but let's face it, it might be my favorite footage of all time, the final mosh from CBs. Different camera angle and the full set as opposed to the final intro video that just has, well, you guessed it, the intro and horrible sound.

The second is one is of my favorite surfers charging, Tyler Hatzikian. Not much chance of making it but still pulls in. The chances of me ever taking on anything remotely that big is slim, but makes you want to go for it.

If this blog is anything like the final mosh, there may be a few posts down the road in the future anyway.

Without Words

When it rains it pours and July has been a great month for zine reading. Managed to win a couple late 90s zines off of eBay and thanks to a previous conversation with Brett of Wasted Days fame, he sent me a PILE of good reading to borrow and I didn't even need a library card. The picture above is a mix of what I get to sort through, read and nerd out on for the next couple weeks. My love for hardcore zines has always been a subject on Death Tens, but it definitely bums me out that there aren't as many printed zines being done these days.

One of my favorite features in zines which there definitely needs to be more of: Show Stories. Hardware used to have then and so did Contention among others. Most of the time, they didn't focus on the actual bands that played, but antics that happened while the show was going on. Near fights, stagedives, sneaking into shows, near misses and everything else that goes with DIY shows always made for a good read.

This year there have been a couple good zines released and I definitely like the idea of releasing issues in PDF format for immediate download like a handful have done this year. Documentation is just as important as crucial merch.

For Myself

Adding to the pile of merch that Stick Together has printed on tees, sweats, longsleeves, jackets, swim trunks and hats, I added the logo to the fin of my noserider earlier this summer. If it wasn't a bootleg, it might be considered the most limited piece of Stick Together Merch out there.

Hope that new 7 inch drops soon. Their track on the Striving Higher comp sounds great along with Rival Mob, Disengage, Blacklisted and Battle Ruins tunes. Haven't really listened to the others yet.
