Rancid - Ruby Soho Lyrics

Echoes of reggae comin through my bedroom wall
Havin a party up next door but i'm sittin here all alone
Two lovers in the bedroom and the other starts to shout
All i got is this blank stare and that don't carry no clout atall

Destination unknown
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho
Destination unknown
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho

He's singin and she's there to lend a hand
He's seen his name on the marquee but she will never understand
Once again he's leavin and she's there with a tear in her eye
Embraces with a warm gesture it's time, time to say goodbye

Destination unknown
Ruby ruby ruby ruby so ho
Destination unknown
Ruby ruby ruby ruby so ho

Ruby's heart ain't beatin cause she knows the feelin is gone
She's not the only one who knew there's somethin wrong
Little lover's in the distance as she wipes a tear from her eye
Ruby's fading out she disappears, it's time, time to saygoodbye

Destination unknown
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho
Destination unknown
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho

Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho
Ruby ruby ruby ruby soho

Destination unknown

'Wooden Nickels' episode 4: Everything looks better in Slow-Mo

Before we all figured out we could shoot in 720HD 60P and use Cine Tools to make amazing slow-mos... we would just shoot them in camera on the HVX. And like Dave Chappelle said, everything does looks better in Slow Mo... especially Levi Brown's treflips

'Wooden Nickels' episode 3: Michael Mackrodt & Pirkka Pollari (Element Europe)

Michael is a good friend of mine and one of my neighbors here in Berlin. When he is not traveling the world like a mad man, we get a chance to shred together here in the city.

With his team mates on Element Europe always coming through and staying with him, I got a chance to shred with them and get know a few of them over the last few years. Pirkka has been a frequent visitor and one of my favorites. I have no idea what is in the water in Finland but I am going to bottle it and sell it to other skaters across the world... every Finnish skater I meet rips.

So with this footage just sitting on my drive after 'Get Busy Living', I thought it would be good to get this stuff out and give the guys a bit of exposure between video projects. So my fellow skate nerds and skate rats... Welcome to episode 3. Element Europe style....

'Wooden Nickels' episode 2: The Bird is the Word

Last year, I spent 2 weeks on the road with Nike SB along side my good friend Dan Magee. The European tour brought all the heavy hitters and I have never witnessed skateboarding like this ever before. I felt like a chicken with my head cut off at the demos. Honestly... thank goodness there were two of us filming on the trip. What a tour it was and the segments Magee edited were just brilliant. If you have not seen them, check the link below.


But even with 4 parts from the tour, there was still a bit of footage left over that needed to see the light of day. Ladies and gentleman... welcome to episode 2

Desert Crawl - Insight's SW tour (Part 2)

Featuring Insight Team Riders Jamie Thomas, Daniel Shimizu, Daniel Lutheran and flow rider Ryan Reyes.

Filmed and Edited by: Lannie Rhoades


"One day before we were to leave for the desert, we made an $870 investment in the key to our adventure; a 1982 Chevy van.

With time to kill and very little mechanical experience, we braved problem after problem as we traveled with absolute excitement and anticipation for the open road.

Our mission was simple; make it to Phoenix in time for the Garage Artist event at Cowtown with local artist, JJ Horner, then proceed onto Tucson for a skate jam at Starr Skates all while having as much fun as possible on the way. It took us 3 days to make it to Phoenix and we got to camp in the desert and the snow, see the Grand Canyon, skate several parks and avoid getting eaten by vultures. The Phoenix portion of our trip was equally as fruitful; it was packed with nonstop skate missions and an epic art show. We were only in Tucson for a day, but we made the most of our minutes.

These are the times of our lives and we hope that you enjoy our memoirs in this blog; "Desert Crawl"'

The ASL World Tour: You be the judge [Rio Re-Run]

from Australia Surfing Life

Surfing Life was staggered to see the sheer volume of banter and debate that followed the Owen Wright and Adriano de Souza quarterfinal at last week’s Billabong Rio Pro. Online chatter hit new levels, seemingly the entire surf community felt compelled to volunteer an opinion, from the informed to the libellous, from unfortunately nationalistic to the engaged and enthusiastic.

The uproar proved how intensely passionate surfers are about the upper level of their sport, and demanded an ASP response. Which they duly gave, releasing a bizarre retrospective, in which “the ASP International Judging Panel were gracious enough to look back and provide their expert perspective on the heat.” The statement raised as many questions as it answered, and the simultaneous timing of its release on aspworldtour.com alongside another post asking whether we all want to return to G-Land saw the public calling the ASP out for trying to divert attention from the bigger issue.

It’s all behind us now, but with ASL’s in-house filmer Nick Pollet keen to hit the the edit suite we thought we’d get him to pull together highlight clips of the best waves of four standout surfers from the Rio event, complete with their scores. This is not intended to undermine the ASP and their judges at all, if anything it should demonstrate how much the panel has to, and do, adjust their scale on heat-by-heat basis, depending on conditions.

But, we’d love your feedback. If this was an expression session, who would you give the nod to? What do you think the judges should be rewarding, and what would you like to see them marking down? Compare the clips and let us know your thoughts.

Billabong Rio Pro - Final

The Pool - The Full Story

The Pool was more than a BMX comp, it was one of the most extra-ordinary gatherings of the BMX community this century.

From the draining of a soon to be demolished local authority swimming pool in Dagenham, East London, into a world class park in less than two weeks was a feat in itself, but to see the diversity and level or riding on display at the launch event was truly remarkable.

40 international riders with a brand new team format saw non-comp riders, veterans, street destroyers and park animals all throw down into something far better than we could have dreamt of.

Winning Team:
Dennis Enarson, Chad Kerley, Josh Harrington and Jeremiah Smith

Best Line: (Awarded to Ruben’s team)
Ruben Alcantara, Kevin Kalkoff, Sergio Layos, and Tom Dugan

Best Rider: (Rider’s choice)
Dennis Enarson

Best Trick:
Brian Foster - Gap to curved wallride out of the deep end

The Pool is free to ride until the 12th June 2011

Enough to keep me in this state
Ticking through to the next escape
Come with me
Believe me


I woke up late
And I rolled the stone
Laziness and death in one
You were once a gentleman
Ended up a bitter man
Come with me

Strange Notes - Field Trip - Satellites

Loic Wirth, Filmmaker [Surfing Mag]

posted by Nathan Myers

Quick, name your favorite Brazilian surf movie! [Not you, Brazilian guy, I’m talking to the racist pig Americans on this website.]

Couldn’t name any? Damn, me neither. I feel terrible about it, too. I gotta pay better attention. You do, too. But I think we’re about to catch a break. This kid, Loic, he might be the real deal. His camera work is simply beautiful. He’s young, hungry, total soul of an artist.

Last year Loic broke the mold last year when he earned little known Uruguayan soul-surfer Marco Giorgi a spot on Taylor Steele’s Innersection project (beating out Kelly Slater and Joel Parkinson’s sections in the same round), and his final submission to that film was a groovy, heartfelt break from the rest of the full-throttle contestants.

Now he’s about to release his own full-length feature film, Intentio, and judging by the trailer…it’s going to look beautiful. Loic’s definitely got a cinematic eye and a storyteller’s heart. Just 21 years with a Belgium expat father (who moved to Brazil when he met his mom), the kids been traveling the world, introducing himself to pros and picking up clips and shots wherever he could find them. From Uruguay to France to New Zealand and Hawaii, he’s managed to film with guys like Craig Anderson, Gabriel Villeran, Chippa Wilson and more, but I’d surmise that it’s Loic’s talent behind the camera that’s going to shine through in this project. Just watch the trailer:

YAH caught up with him in Rio just before he locked himself in the edit bay to finish cutting the movie. As of yet, the final product is largely unformed…but we have high hopes for Loic. And maybe next time someone asks us about our favorite Brazilian surf movie, we’ll know the answer.

YAH: Quick, who’s your favorite Brazilian surf filmmaker?
LOIC WIRTH: I’m very inspired by Pablo Aguiar’s attitude of doing thing on his own without waiting for anything. And pulling it off. He is a very talented director.

[Weirdos on Wheels by Pablo Aguiar]

What film projects had you worked on before Innersection?
Innersection was the first film project I participate. Before that I only did jobs like webisodes and things like that.

Did participating in that project boost your career?
Innersection? For sure. That was the first time I exposed a video to so many people, and it was magic to see that some people related to it and really like it. I was really lucky that me and Marco Giorgi got the chance to get in a film made by Taylor Steele with so many good surfers and directors in it. I was really happy to be a part of it.

Tell us about your new film. Is there a concept around it?
I don’t think there is a concept, just an idea. The rest will only take real shape when the movie is done. For now, I wouldn’t know how to answer that.

What inspired your approach?
I love the photography in A Brokedown Melody, and also like all the works Joe G does in skate and surfing.

Did you write that narration on the trailer?
Yes, I did.

Nice work. Is that something you’ll do more of in the film?
I’m not sure. I’m actually curious to find out myself.

Why is it in English? Why not Portuguese?
My goal with this movie is to be able to show people some thoughts and messages about things. I want to do it in a way that anyone that wants to will be able to understand, which is impossible, I realize. But English is the international language. A French person or a Japanese person wouldn’t understand Portuguese, but maybe English they will. You know?

What did it take to get this film made? How did you afford to do all this
This answer is probably a bit cliche, but it took a lot of heart. All the surfers in the movie believed in the project and helped me in the way they could. Some of the trips I would be working for a brand doing something, and would film for my project at the same time with my friends when they where in the same place.

Any surfer you think is going to blow people away on this film?
It’s hard to say. I guess each person has a different way of see surfing, and all these surfers approach the ocean in different ways. So I believe some people will relate to one surfer and others will relate to another.

That’s a total non-answer. Are you tactfully avoiding my question?
I’m not avoiding it, that’s honestly what I think. I don’t care what the surfers think of my answer.

Okay, well who’s scoring the best waves?
I think probably Jean da Silva and Marco Giorgi.

Is there a section that you just can’t wait for people to see?
I never see it that way. I think the movie will be complete as a whole, so one section by itself would not be the same without the others. Does that makes sense?

Only because I realize you haven’t edited yet. Is that what you’re doing now?
Yes. A lot of editing.

What’s that like?
Late nights in my room with lots of Brigadeiro and 7 Belos. [Brazilian candy.]

The age of the DVD is changing as we speak. How do you release a project
like this?
I have nothing certain yet. I’m curious as well. I love the idea of a DVD, rather than a download or something. I like that feeling, But I also like putting online for free. I guess I would love to do both.

And then what…make another?
Time will tell. But of course I would love to.

The Adolescents - Kids Of The Black Hole Lyrics

No sound is heard from unit two
When there was once so much to do
It was once a green mansion, but now it's a wasteland
Our days of wreckless fun are through

Kids in a fast lane living for today
No rules to abide by and no one to obey
Sex, drugs and fun is their their only though and care
Another swig of brew another overnight affair

House of the filthy, house not a home
House of destruction where the lurkers roamed
House that belonged to all the homeless kids
Kids of the black hole

Messages and slogans are the primary decor
History's recorded in a clutter on the floor
Inhabitants that searched the grounds for roaches or spare change
Another night of chaos is so easy to arrange


The nights of birthdays
The nights of fry
The nights of endless drinking
The nights of violence
The nights of noise
The nights that had to end for good, still not understood, by the girls and boys

Carefree in their actions as for morals they had none
When the girls were horny who would be the lucky ones?
Pushing all the limits to a point of no return
Trashed beyond belief to show the kids don't wanna learn

Anthony Pshebelski

Manic Hispanic - Medley (Rodney on the ROQ)Lyrics
(Amoeba/Wild in the Streets/Pushin' Too Hard/No Values)

hola, me llamo Delia Cruz y Yo oigo radio KMIX, Santa Ana, California

Things can't get much worse for me
sometimes I'd rather die
there's a fire in my culo
and a teardrop in my eye
it was a caliente, chile verde
if not, then it did seem
but today, I had a firey ring
that made me wanna scream

caca stains, things kill
fast Chevys, cheap thrills
rich putas, fine wine
I'v lost my sense, I've lost control
of my cabeza

Amigos [4x]
We are little vatos in our paths
looking through the pinche hole
us little brown guys, we never lie
uh-uh, that fills our soul

You never seen anything like us before
us vatos got a mind of our own
Adults look around this pinche whitey world
vatos all around the hole

Loco in the streets
Carito, carito [4x]
You got a '63 Impala, a hand full of mota
a couple of cervezas really do me right
you better believe us, better trust us
teenage drunk, pinche wreck

Loco in the streets
Carito, carito [4x]

Hola Miss Sant'Ana,
how's your favorite mijo now?
Do you know just what he's done?

You're pushing too hard, you're pushing on me
You're pushing too hard, where you wanna be?
You're pushin' too hard on everything you say
You're pushin' too hard every night and day
You're pushin' too hard
Pushin' too hard on me

I don't care what you say
And I don't care what you do
I've got nothing to give you
Why don't you just smile alone

I got no feria, nothing to say,
I got no feria, Might as well blow you way

Ahh, ahh Tragety, Tragety (?) [4x]

Intentio - Trailer by Loïc Wirth

The funny thing about fairy tales, is that we forget about them so fast
And we grow up, we buy things, we build up fences
We sell our innocence and forget our dreams
We forget who we are in order to be something we're not
And we'll keep believing in this so called truths, until we forget how to live
Or until we open our eyes, and wake up.

This is a trailer for Intentio, a full length project Im working on...
The song is called In a Broken Dream, and its performed by UNKLE, released on the album End Titles...Stories for Film.
