hi ho all.
Tim and I are speaking at BYU Museum of Art this Thursday. We will show clips and talk about our journey in nonfiction film. It has been a great trip, Tim is a brilliant filmmaker. He is technically a genius, a creative powerhouse and he understands the history of filmmaking enough to charge boldly into the future. It is an honor to travel the world with you dude.
Peace, see you Thursday.

Yesterday a friend of the family, and world class artist V. Douglas Snow died in a car crash in Central Utah. Doug was a brilliant artist and respected by many. He was also super duped loved by his students when he taught at the University of Utah. I had always planned on spending time with Doug and doing an interview with him for the art world to archive, but I never made time for the interview. Lesson to me, if you feel like doing it, do it. Love people while we are here together---we all just one swerve of a car away from our final resting place. Rest in Peace Doug, you will be missed.

OK, this is one of my favorite web spots we did for Gentlemen Broncos. One of my favorite lines of all time came from Sam when he called the theater “Sparkly and Fantastic.” Also I love the that he talks about touching all the cookies and stuff after he has handled the stag. And who doesn’t want to a peppermint feeling all inside them? Anybody? Anybody?

On the way to the Airport in Chicago we had the treat of eating breakfast with one of the best skate dads in the business "Mr. Joe Kelly." It was great to see CJ too, CJ in amazing kid and a great skateboarder, we filmed him last year for New Pollution.

We just finished a great shoot in the Chicago area with London Davis and his family. London is skateboarded with a great family that supports his skating 100%. We also shot a magic session with Chaz Ortiz and London. We ended the night with the best BBQ I have ever had. London’s mom cooked us some of her famous D’s BBQ sauce, a family BBQ recipe that has been in the family for over 100 years. Thanks for the food and the good times.(Photo: The family with Matt Beacham the host of New Pollution on Fuel TV)

This is Rob. Rob owns the Warped skate park and lets us crash in his basement anytime we come to town. Rob deserves a medal for the great environment he provides for kids out here. Be sure to say hi anytime you get to Chicago.

We met a couple of cool people today while on a shoot in the Chicago area. Logan and his dad Matt. They are on a mission to skateboard in all 50 states in the next 9 months, basically Logan’s entire 6th grade year. He will be doing home school with his dad, going to museums and learning about the country by traveling it. They are doing it low budget, staying with friends, family, and couch surfing with people they meet along the way. We had fun chatting with them and listening to their stories. We already have plans to help them out when they pass through Utah in April. Anybody interested in helping out when they pass through your state should check out their web site 50skatekid.com.
