Longer Nites & Frothy Bites – Surf Ambassador Hendo Mixtape

Oi Mates!

My last 2 mixes have been more suited for those beach party/pool froth days where mumus, mojitos, and myrtles run wild like gazelles in the San Diego zoo. Today, I bring you a mix more suited for those wild nights where you tell your buddy: “Fine, I’ll have one beer with you mate, just one” and before you know it, you’re takin’ shots of wild turkey out of a soggy shoe at the West End/Saloon/Jumbo’s Clown Room/Adelita’s etc… Consider this mixtape a tank full of fuel to pump into your El Camino strapped with boards in the back, babe in the front, hands on the wheel, and destination set to 1987. Dedicated to those long summer nites filled with fun, froth, and friends, I hope this mix finds you well and that you share the wealth! Without further adieu, I present to you “Longer Nites & Frothy Bites – July Mixtape” by Surf Ambassador Hendo:

Tracklist can now be found on my Facebook here:

Hugh Kretschmer | Surreal & Humerous Ad Campaigns


SAMSARA is the first film by director and cinematographer Ron Ficke (Koyaanisqatsi, Baraka) in nearly 20 years. Following in the footsteps of his earlier work, it will be completely devoid of dialogue and text, relying solely on compelling visuals shot around the globe and entirely on 70mm film. If you haven’t had the chance of seeing any of his other cinematic masterpieces I HIGHLY recommend it. For starters you can check out Koyaanisqatsi in its entirety here. SAMSARA is set to release on August 24th in the US.

SAMSARA is a Sanskrit word that means “the ever turning wheel of life” and is the point of departure for the filmmakers as they search for the elusive current of interconnection that runs through our lives. Filmed over a period of almost five years and in twenty-five countries, SAMSARA transports us to sacred grounds, disaster zones, industrial sites, and natural wonders. By dispensing with dialogue and descriptive text, SAMSARA subverts our expectations of a traditional documentary, instead encouraging our own inner interpretations inspired by images and music that infuses the ancient with the modern.

Rolling Thunder

Doubt this will be available long, but you can now view everyone’s favorite ‘revenge flick’ and Grindhouse cinema classic, Rolling Thunder, & its entirety via YouTube. “Let’s clean ‘em up!”
