Tengu wins Year's Best Independent Video in The Skateboard Mag!

thanks for your support everybody!  and thanks to templeton elliott at the mag for getting behind the video.  bet you never thought you'd have a photo in a big mag, huh, connor?  (photo is of course by the illustrious and all-white-wearing allen ying.)

VHS Mag has a few words by me--in english and japanese--on their "voices of freedom" section, accompanied by this incredible edit by morita and shigeta of footage i filmed last fall.



what else is up?  spring is here--although the weather keeps forgetting and falling back into winter--and we've been skating.  static 4 is premiering may 1 at sunshine cinema.  so new york city is a great place to be....and here i am, figuring out the next trips so go on.  japan, panama, SF, puerto rico, cincinnati... too much to do and too little time.  maybe i should be like eby and never sleep.

speaking of eby, his kickstarter for stoops mag is nearing the end of its run for the second time, so help make sure he gets some money to help get the zine off the ground!

peace, meow.
