Paul Rodriguez in “Vicious Circle”

1 08 2008

Damn, this kid is on fire! Not only with his skateboarding career taking first at everything he competes in (lets see how X-games pan out today), the opening of his steezy boutique Primitive, and now his acting career. With “Street Dreams” to arrive during the holidays (along with his first born!), his latest film “Vicious Circle” is already getting mad hype!

“Vicious Circle” wins the top prize, “Best Picture”, at the 2008 HBO New York International Film Festival in New York City. Check out the full press release here.

Trailer and interview below:

The Maloof Skateboarding Assistance Foundation

10 07 2008

As an exciting and skillful a sport skateboarding is, skaters are constantly putting their bodies at risk. With crazy injuries such as Jake Brown’s slam at the 2007 X-games, and Pat Duffy’s crash back in 2006 on Bob Burnquist’s mega ramp, the medical assistance can be a tumultuous time if not properly insured.

As Joe Maloof brings the “world’s greates skateboarding competion” to us this weekend, he has also started a kick ass foundation. The Maloof Skateboarding Assistance Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing support to professional skaters who suffer catastrophic injuries arising from skateboarding events as well as educating the public about the sport of Skateboarding. The
Foundation was established in 2008 by Joe and Gavin Maloof.

Board of Directors:
Joe Maloof, Chairman
Gavin Maloof, Vice-Chairman
Tom Land, Secretary & Treasurer
Carlton Fletcher
Matina Kolokotronis

Good news for the world of skateboarding.

MTV And NBC Get Buddy Buddy With AST

29 05 2008

Wow (as I say that in a monotone, satirical manner), MTV and NBC has inked a partnership with the AST (Action Sports Tour). No surprise here, and I think for anyone to get all angry about it is kind of lame. Hate it or love it, skateboarding once again becomes even more mainstream and profitable. It’s like when your favorite band that was once so under the radar goes huge, you naturally feel disappointed because of all the douches and corpos that begin to exploit them to more douches and corpos. Well at least the musicians are then getting the pay and notoriety they deserve for their unique talents. In the same turn, skaters are equally entitled in receiving proper dues for all their hard work and skill.

This newest venture ain’t nothin’ of the new. C’mon now, MTV already brought out Jack Ass, Viva La Bam, Rob and Big (which I love), and the horrible Life of Ryan. What about the Maloof Money Cup? Now that’s some corpo shit, but pretty damn awesome nonetheless. Similarly, our skaters deserve that cash money comin’ in from the Dew Tour and such. This new partnership just provides more opportunities and money for skaters to make a living, and yes corpos are profiting but what’s new? Now when NBC comes out with their all American team (hypothetically speaking) and skateboarding goes pop warner, then it’s the apocalypse. But until then just keep it real and nevermind the bull shit, support the under before the over.
