Hyped to throw this online. I watched Barlow grow up from being a little kid in Gainesville to becoming one of the most incredible skaters I've ever known. The grasshopper has become the master...
A lot of people have asked me about the long delay in posting a certain Spirit Quest part: Connor Kammerer's. Well... this is why....
The 7" vinyl record of the soundtrack to Connor's section is finally ready! Connor's record features a new, extended mix of the Spirit Quest Dub (which is made of looping diegetic skate sounds), and the night section's Waltz Through Babylon.
You can get the record for only 10 bucks here: connorkammerer.bigcartel.com
Additionally, I'm giving a free digital copy of the video away with each record purchase--including the theatrical cut of the video, and all bonus features.
Head over to Connor's site if you want a copy--it's a small run, so if you want one, get on it.
...And here is the part, of course.

I've been waiting an entire year to see this. Jacob shot all the madness from our Japan Spirit Quest tour last year: Shame Quest. Some skating and a lot of madness. Featuring most of the Spirit Quest crew.

I was recently asked to write and direct the music video for Radiohead's "Man of War," an released track from OK Computer being aired for its 20th anniversary. I brought on Connor Kammerer to co-direct, and the video is finally out. There's a lot of Mandible Claw crew tucked away in the video as extras, so keep your eyes open! It was a plasure and honor working on the video. Hope you enjoy it.
Released Chris Jones's incredible Spirit Quest part on the web so everyone can bask in his Welsh glory.
I re-upped the Roof Skating section from Tengu on Vimeo. Enjoy!
I made this stop-motion animation for Converse CONS with Zered. Turned out cool! See if you can find the hidden CLAW...
