David Choe and James Jean keep painting, keep drawing and most of all keep fucking around. Dope video showcasing their secret studio in Los Angeles. Somehow these monsters end up getting an art show together in Japan at PARCO that will melt your fucking eyes out of their sockets. Shot by Willie T.

There’s something about cactus that has always intrigued me. It may be because of the danger and pain they have so harshly stabbed upon my body in past travels. Or it may be because of the potent psychedelic power that is derived (then consumed) from a few of the finer cacti family. Either way, the cactus has always grabbed my eye. Here are some MindTai captures.
Tide pools are another one of Mother Nature’s little golden gifts. Filled and emptied everyday with fresh ocean water, carrying in and out all sorts of salty life. Here are some tide pool and ocean snags from MindTai and the NUDE EYE.
Doped Youth is perhaps the most classic surf flick of all time. It was produced by Adam Blakey and Ozzie Wright in 2005 and stars a cast of the best surfers/rockers/degenerates born and bred on the killer coasts of Australia. Ozzie Wright and the Doped Youth Crew go up against Kelly Slater (Groovy Avalon) in a Battle of the Bands square-off. The hilarious cast of rippers really know how to throw down a proper punk rock flick. If you haven’t seen or heard of Doped Youth get on the wagon and go for a ride! (FULL VIDEO BELOW)
When we all thought the puck rock generation of Christian Fletcher and Matt Archbold had come to an end, Ozzie Wright continued to carry on the surf-punk spirit thrashing and bashing as always. On top of surfing and skating, Ozzie is a sick artist, musician, filmmaker and all-around person. He jams solo and with his other bands: Goons Of Doom, & Doped Youth. We’ve included special tracks from his collection. Gather them below and buy their shit at Volcom Entertainment.
“We were making a surf movie about us being a band – ["Doped Youth"]. So, we bought all the instruments and stuff. We’d been playing our instruments for 5 days and we had a gig at a party. We were ridiculously bad… We were really nervous and we sucked. And then we had another one the next week and just kept going. One tour, we did about 30 gigs in six weeks and after that we were like, “I guess we’re getting pretty good.” We’ve since played Tokyo, Hollywood, and were hoping to go to New York this year . We take it seriously but in a fun way.”
